Small Town Romance Collection

Small Town Romance Collection by Carolyn BrownTo celebrate the twentieth year since I got the first call from an editor who wanted to buy my romance books, my first four books with a brand new novella have been combined into one Small Town Romance Collection. The collection will be up for sale on Feb. 14 and is available now for preorder now at Amazon for your Kindle. Romance on Valentine’s Day…now that’s romantic!!

This collection of vintage romances plus a brand new novella all has secrets, secrets and more secrets to uncover and with love to be found!

Honky Tonk Angel
Angel Conrad’s secrets ran deep and even though she’d made a successful life for herself, she’s never gotten over that pain.

Red River Deep
Tracey has a secret, and bittersweet memories that she keeps close to her heart. Maybe a brand new start in a brand new town would help erase the memories.

An Old Love’s Shadow
Mercy thought that what happened in Mexico was supposed to stay in Mexico but the secret followed her home to Oklahoma.

Bride for a Day
Cassie was on the run with a sheriff coming right at her and a handsome farmer close enough that she could touch him. Then she was married at least for a day—and his family wanted to know all her secrets.

The Third Wish (The BRAND NEW NOVELLA)
Jessica certainly had no desire to get involved with anyone once she’d found out the secret in her background, especially not the arrogant Rocky Rycroft.

Happy Reading!

Just in time for Christmas stockings!

A Heap of Texas Trouble has arrived on the book shelves and it’s just in time for Christmas. It fits right well in a stocking and after the holidays when all the wrapping paper has been wadded up and thrown in the trash, when Christmas dinner is over and all the relatives have gone home—you can put on your new flannel pajama pants, make a cup of hot chocolate, snuggle up under that new fluffy throw and read!

A little excerpt from the beginning of the book…

Some men are just born stupid.

Carlene could testify with her right hand raised to God and the left on the good book that her husband, Lenny, had been born with the disease and it had worsened with the years. Proof was held between her thumb and forefinger like a dead rat in the form of a pair of bikini underwear. They damn sure didn’t belong to her. Hells bells she couldn’t get one leg in those tiny little things. And they did not belong to Lenny, either. Even if he had become an overnight cross dresser, his ass wouldn’t fit into that skimpy pair of under britches, not even if he greased himself down with bacon drippings.

They were bright red with a sparkling sequin heart sewn on the triangular front. They’d come with a matching corset with garter straps and fish net hose. Carlene recognized them because she’d designed the outfit at her lingerie shop, Bless My Bloomers. They belonged to a petite, size-four brunette with big brown eyes that giggled like a little girl when she saw herself in the mirror wearing the get-up.

Carlene dropped them back into Lenny’s brief case when her cell phone rang. The ring tone said it was Lenny but she was still speechless and staring at the scrap of satin in her hand. 

The brunette who’d bought the red-satin outfit had told her that she and her sugar daddy were going to Vegas and she wanted something that would make him so hot he’d be ready to buy her an engagement ring the next week. What was her name? Bailey? Brenda? No something French because Carlene remembered asking her about it. Bridget…that was it! Bridget had been to Vegas with Lenny. How many other trips had he taken a bimbo with him and how many had been ten or fifteen years younger and a size four—for God’s sake. 

It’s less than three weeks until Christmas. Do you have your shopping done? 

(Note: This book was previously published as The Red-Hot Chili Cook-Off)

Winter? Summer? Both in One Day?

In Oklahoma there are two seasons—winter and summer. That does not mean that winter lasts six months and then there’s half a year of summer. It could be that you’d wake up to winter in the morning, shiver all the way to the kitchen to make your morning coffee and put on jeans and a sweater to go to work. At noon the weatherman gets to tinkering with the thermostat and suddenly, you wish you’d packed a sundress and sandals in your backpack instead of an e-reader and a cup of hot chicken noodle soup.

It all evens out—only in hour increments, not monthly ones. But the Okie natives learned a long time ago to give up steaks to pay the electric bill for air conditioning and that it’s not unusual to switch back and forth between A/C and heat twice or even three times a day.

And we don’t often have seasons here. We go from hot to cold and then back to hot pretty quick. One day we’re at the lake in our bikinis, the next we are bundled up in jackets and folks are talking about a white Christmas.

But this year, it’s beginning to look like we might have fall. I’m not holding my breath—I do not look good in that shade of blue. However, the weatherman says that by the middle of this week we might get a few days of fall-like weather. He’s been wrong before on many occasions, thus the reason for not sucking in a double lung full of air.

Thinking about fall—hot chocolate, pumpkin bread slathered with butter, caramel corn just puts me in the mood for a good book and a quiet Sunday afternoon to curl up with it in my favorite recliner.

Finding a quiet afternoon at my house is about as predictable as judging what to wear to on any given day when the weather is trying to decide whether it’s going to be one of the two seasons. But finding a good book to read—now that’s not too difficult with all the wonderful new releases coming out this month.

Among those releases you can find three of my books that hit the market this month. A Cowboy Christmas Miracle, the last in the four book Burnt Boot Series, came out on Sept. 6. Then The Lullaby Sky, a romantic women’s fiction, hit the shelves on Sept. 13 and Merry Cowboy Christmas, the third book in The Lucky Penny Ranch Series, will be here on Sept. 27.

So get out the hot chocolate and enjoy some fall weather. And if you can find a quiet afternoon…sneak off for a few quiet hours with a good book!!
