  • Honky Tonk Hearts Series

    Chase Paladin avoids commitment like a patch of stinging nettles. He's seen how love can trample a man, and he doesn't plan to get hitched--ever. But when Honor Jackson walks into his life, hell-bent on keeping her distance, she turns his convictions inside out.

    One look at the too-handsome cowboy with laughing green eyes and a killer smile, and Honor knows he's nothing but trouble. She's come to Redemption, Texas to help an old friend, not to let another man charm her into certain heartache.

    But every time she turns around, Chase is there, and the closer they get, the more she fears he'll break her heart. So when anonymous threats make it clear that someone in Redemption wants her gone, Honor is ready to oblige. Only now Chase isn't certain he can live without her.

    Will two wary hearts take a chance on love before it's too late?

    Excerpt:

    Chase reached over and gave her arm a squeeze. The imprint of his fingers on her bare skin tingled like a brand.

    "I'm sure you'll do just fine. Soon as word gets out, you'll draw the locals like bees to honey."

    She rolled her eyes. "I've never heard that line before."

    "I can see I have an uphill battle ahead. Charming you won't be an easy task."

    Leaning her head against the high vinyl seatback, she avoided his smiling eyes. "More like impossible, so don't bother trying."

    His lips firmed. "Is it me in particular, or are you always this friendly?"

    She didn't answer immediately. Stroking the dog's silky coat, she spent a moment composing her thoughts. "I'm sure you're a whole lot of fun. You're handsome and entertaining." She let out a breath. "You're probably a firecracker in bed to boot."

    He coughed and shot her a wide-eyed glance.

    "But I'm not in the market for a fling with a good-looking cowboy."

    "Why not?"

    "Huh?"

    "What happened to put you off men?"

    "Life happened. I plan to work for Andee for a couple of months and get my ducks in a row before moving on. I'm pretty sure--make that one hundred percent positive--getting involved with you would complicate the equation, and I'm no math whiz."

    "What are you a whiz at, besides putting men in their place?"

Review

Amie Lou from Romancing the Book - Chase Paladin is a typical cowboy. Not that it’s a bad thing. He’s handsome, flirty, and runs from commitment. So how does he get tangled up with a girl who’s taking a ‘break from men’? Honor Jackson has been through a tough time. Between her grandfather’s death and mounting bills, she needs a new start. Redemption, Texas, seems to be just the place. Despite her protests, she finds herself more than involved with the smooth talking cowboy.

But Honor doesn’t immediately fall into his lap which is intriguing to Chase. But when someone starts leaving not-so veiled threats on her doorstep, it’s Chase to the rescue (and let’s face it—most of us love cowboys who rescue). Chase is sweet, respectful, and doesn’t give himself near enough credit, while Honor is dealing with her own short-comings and ghosts from the past.

Nothing But Trouble is a fun story. It’s a great escape read for a rainy (or otherwise) afternoon. Just what a short romance should be.

      This is the first book I've read in the series and if they're all this fun, I can't wait to read the rest. Chase and Honey make the perfect romantic pair. Grab your heart and read this book!

        Chase Paladin slammed on the brakes and prayed.
        With that opening line, multi-published author Jannine Gallant does it again. She delivers a highly sensuous, extremely satisfying romance. Love ‘em and leave ‘em rancher Chase is the most charming reluctant husband material character ever crafted. One who doesn’t stand a chance when strong willed and feisty Honor Jackson takes him for the ride of his life. And all the while putting him in his place, right by her side.
        Nothing But Trouble is nothing but fabulous. Watching Chase struggle to rein in his raging libido is especially entertaining. Two people to care about and a story to love.
