Jackie Ashenden’s tantalizing series introduces the men of Lone Star Bounty: three badass bounty-hunter brothers who will have readers begging to be caught.

Even as a Green Beret, Zane Redmond hasn’t faced a tougher mission than going home again. Loyalty to his brothers is the only reason he’s back in Texas, not that he intends to stay for long. Zane sure as hell isn’t going into the family business. One last bounty and he’s done—or so he thinks. Nobody warned him that his fugitive happens to be a red-hot brunette with a smart mouth, a body made for sin, and a brutal cartel on her trail.

Bad circumstances and worse choices have left Iris Callahan in a desperate situation. After getting arrested for a drug drop gone wrong, she skipped bail and hit the road to avoid testifying. Now the cartel wants Iris silenced forever, and she’s just lucky that Zane catches her before they do. Handcuffed to a bed, she surrenders to the cool-as-ice bounty hunter in order to survive. But as the chase heats up, Zane sneaks past her emotional defenses—and Iris is in too deep to let him go.

Includes a special message from the editor, as well as an excerpt from another Loveswept title.

Take Me Deeper (Texas Bounty, #1)Take Me Deeper by Jackie Ashenden

Three brothers, estranged by life circumstances, are brought back together after their father’s death to run the family bounty hunting business. Zane Redmond really escaped that life by becoming a Green Beret. He has come home to help his brothers out but has intention to stay and plans on reenlisting as soon as possible. He never imagined his first fugitive was going to be the hot, spit fire Iris Callahan.

Iris is on the run from the cartel. Iris knows just enough to cause them lots of problems and no one that has turned up to testify against the cartel has lived to make it to court. Not knowing who she can trust, she ran. Iris has been flying under the radar, trying to raise enough money to grab her sister and run until Zane shatters her plans.

Zane soon discovers there is more to Iris than meets the eye, she isn’t just some low life on the run. Something about Iris brings out his protective side.

I found Take Me Deeper a good contemporary romance with strong characters and an imaginative plot that keeps you vested in the storytelling.

I received this ARC copy of Take Me Deeper from Random House Publishing Group - Loveswept in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication October 4, 2016.
