The first in a sexy new contemporary western romance series from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Julia London where cowboys and true love brings you home...
Cimarron County knows the youngest son of the fabled Prince family as a womanizing hell-raiser, but Luca has another side to him. He intends to turn the overworked pasture land his father left him back to its natural beauty. There's just one problem--a woman with sparkling eyes and more fight than a barnyard cat is grandfathered into some acreage on his portion of Three Rivers Ranch.
After years of living in foster homes, Ella has exactly three things to her name: A dog, a pig, and the rundown house she just inherited. Luca may not remember her from high school, but she definitely remembers him. He is as seductive as he was then, but Ella isn't about to fall for his flirting--if only she could stop melting at his touch.
What begins as a game of seduction for Luca quickly turns into something more, but Ella has learned the hard way to trust no one but herself--especially when it comes to her deepest secret. Yet the closer Luca gets to Ella, the more he wants to be the one she leans on. For once, Luca is determined to do something right and give the woman he loves the home she deserves.
The Charmer in Chaps by Julia London
The Charmer in Chaps is a sweet and endearing romance that is sure to past the test of time.
Ella is an accountant that has struggled with her beginnings in the foster care system. She is pulled back to Cimarron County when she is told that her biological grandmother has left her her run down farm in her will. Ella jumps at a chance to have something of her own and goes back to Cimarron, only to discover that the farm is inhabited by a rag tag collection of misfit animals, the house is in worse condition then she thought and she doesn’t have enough clients to support herself so she takes a job hostessing at the local restaurant.
On her way into town, Ella’s car breaks down for the umpteenth time, bringing her high school crush, Luca back into her life. The only problem, even though Luca shamelessly flirts with Ella, he doesn’t remember Ella at all.
It all starts as some harmless attraction but for Luca it turns into so much more. He sees in Ella everything that he wants in life if he could just convince her he’s in it for the long hall.
The road is rocky, the family dynamics are unquestionable difficult and the collection of animals congregating on Ella’s property steal the show.
