Romantic stories to bring on the warmth of the familiar and the excitement of the new.


It’s March! Time to thaw out, time to spring forward, time for basketball madness, and always time for Romance. This month, we have two very different romantic stories to bring on the warmth of the familiar and the excitement of the new.  


Second-Chance Romance 

Which shines brighter: Hollywood lights or the Texas stars? 


Laurel Burkitt, who owns half of the mega-ranching empire known as the Aces High, shook the Texas dirt off her stilettos a long time ago. She’s all about high fashion, sleek cars, and adding movie awards to her shelves. No dark-eyed, sexy, hard-driving, country-living cowboy is going to rope her into being his country darlin'… as long as her brain keeps control over the traitorous yearnings of her heart. 


Jaxson Hawkes, foreman of the Aces High, was born to the saddle and to being a cowboy all his days. So it took him a while to finally bare his soul to the spitfire he grew up adoring. He expected Laurel to choose between him and Texas and her dream of California gold. Her choice broke his heart. 


Now Laurel’s back and her ideas of merging California with Texas aren’t sitting too well with Jaxson. There’s a showdown coming between them, and when the dust clears, will he send her packing on that shiny plane once and for all? Or will the lady claim the cowboy's heart for good? 


The Texas Cowboy’s Lady is the second book in the Texas Heritage series and available from popular online retailers.  


Born and raised in the Lone Star state of Texas, Debra Holt grew up among horses, cowboys, wide open spaces, and real Texas Rangers. Pride in her state and ancestry knows no bounds and it is these heroes and heroines she loves to write about the most. When she isn't busy writing about tall Texans and feisty heroines, Debra can be found cheering on her Texas Tech Red Raiders, or heading off on another cruise adventure.  


Paranormal Romance 

Bailey is tough as nails and the wild card of the bunch. Never one to be played with, she made her own rules. As Gabriel and Ryan fall in love, she becomes aware of her deficiency. When she ends up in a sticky situation, she decides to make a change. She is no longer interested in disappointing her family. As she implements her new self-control, things are looking up and going as planned … for a while. 


Dallas Donavan is new to town and looking to find his place. When he comes across the beautiful Bailey, he’s intrigued by her style and tattoos. She’s a puzzle he’s ready to solve. Too bad they get off on the wrong foot. 


Will they regain their footing or buckle under the pressure? 


Bitter Fangs is the third and final installment in the Fangs standalone series. All three books are free to borrow for Kindle Unlimited subscribers. 


A certified bookworm, Nicole Whitfield lives in Texas and spends her early mornings writing. If she’s not binge reading or writing a new story, Nicole can be found doing terrible British accents with her two kids and husband. She enjoys creating worlds and characters that are relatable, and is a sucker for a happy ending. 

Maida Malby is still deeply ensconced in her writing cave to finish her work-in-progress Samui Heat, the next installment in her contemporary destination romance series Carpe Diem Chronicles. She comes out occasionally to share her reviews for Lone Star Book Blog Tours on her blog at
