TROUBLE TIMES THREE: The Caruther’s Sisters Trilogy
Her Bewitched Cowboy:
Kiley Caruthers isn’t interested in being tied down by the restrictions of marriage. She’s happy with her life. She has a growing career as a cookbook writer, with ambitions to have her own cooking show. She doesn’t need some man to get in her way, to slow her down, or to tell her what to do. But her sisters have a different opinion about what she needs. They are pressing her to choose her future husband from the men they invite to a Halloween party. She decides to play along because it promises to be fun…and because it annoys her older brother and his far-too-stiff best friend. Something she specializes in.
Ethan Talbot’s ranch is one of the biggest in the state, keeping him busy. He hasn’t had an interest in marriage until he realizes he needs the “perfect” woman by his side. She must be socially acceptable, mannerly at all times, stylish, and satisfied in a supportive wifely role, with no ambitions of her own. She must be completely opposite of the “triplet terrors,” the sisters of his best friend. Okay, he has a minor interest in one of them, Kiley. But Hell will freeze over before….
Korey Caruthers is happy one of her triplet sisters found a man potentially the love of her life. And it looks like the other triplet, Katie, may be “leaning the other way.” Which means their older brother is left to concentrate on finding her a husband, with the help of his friend Ethan. She doesn’t need help in the romance department. Most men can’t keep with her, so she is happy with “temporary” lovers. Everyone can just leave her alone, thank you very much.
Dante Tarrango’s life is in transition after retiring as a pro football quarterback. He’s grateful his friend, Ethan, is letting him hide out on his ranch while he figures out his next steps. He wants to be free of everyone wanting to use him because of his name, his influence, and his wealth. Most of all he wants to avoid husband-hunting women. A bad marriage soured him on romance. But there is just something about the spunky sister of Ethan’s girlfriend. Something that is damn tempting, particularly when she isn’t interested in “permanent” either.
Santo’s Naughty Wife
Katie Caruthers has a big secret she’s been keeping from her family: she’s married. It was one of those weird things that happened on vacation. They’d agreed to a divorce by the end of the year and they hadn’t seen each other since that fateful two weeks in February. So, shouldn’t one of them be starting the process to end something that shouldn’t have happened?
Santo Closs is a man who sets goals and reaches them. His businesses focusing on Christmas have taken him far from the poor life of his childhood. He has wealth, but he doesn’t have a wife and children. Actually, he does have a wife. It’s complicated, and it’s time for him to face her again. But to do what?
