Rescued by the Ranger
By: Dixie Lee Brown
Releasing September 8, 2015
The only thing Rachel Maguire wants is to send this smart-mouthed, muscled military man packing. She knows Garrett has his own reasons for staying, so when he offers Rachel a deal—two days to prove his worth or he leaves—she reluctantly agrees. Despite wanting to loathe him, Rachel finds herself drawn to his quiet confidence…and the way he fills out a t-shirt.
But when Rachel receives a phone call from the past, everything changes. The stalker who destroyed her life ten years ago is closing in once more. Refusing to put anyone else in harm's way, Rachel hits the road hoping to lure danger away from those she loves. But Garrett won't leave this sexy spitfire to face her stalker alone. He'll do anything to protect her. Even if it means risking his life—and his heart.
DIXIE LEE BROWN lives and writes in Central Oregon, inspired by what she believes is the most gorgeous scenery anywhere. She resides with two dogs and a cat, who make sure she never takes herself too seriously. When she’s not writing, she enjoys reading, movies, and trips to the beach.
Romancing the Readers would like to thank Dixie Lee Brown for stopping by and visiting with us!
Thanks for having me on Romancing the Readers today. I appreciate the opportunity to celebrate the release of RESCUED BY THE RANGER with you and your readers. I love what I do. I’d write even if no one read the fruits of my labor. I have a special connection to each of my books, but none more than this one.
We’re all looking for something different in a romance novel. Some have to be caught up in the story in the first or second paragraph or they’re done. Others are looking for that hot, intimate interlude. Still others need larger-than-life heroes and strong heroines. What turns the pages for you?
Before I loved to write, I loved to read. I don’t have as much spare time as I used to, but the same thing draws me into a great romance novel. I fall in love with the characters. The hero makes me swoon, and I want to be the heroine. So, without further ado, here is a list of five of my favorite romance novels—in no particular order.
She’s Got Dibs by AJ Nuest—this is the heartwarming tale of Tessa Adams who has every reason not to trust in love. So, when she’s attracted to the sexy, gorgeous David Brenner, she opts for a one-night stand instead. The only problem is: David Brenner won’t go away like any self-respecting one-night stand should. Nuest knows how to squeeze every drop of emotion from a scene. So much so that I think I was exhausted by the time I finished the book, but I still didn’t want it to end.
The Dysfunctional Test by Kelly Moran—when Moran says dysfunctional she means it, on the same order as My Big Fat Greek Wedding, which I also loved. For Camryn Covic to attend a family wedding without a significant other would be a disaster. So she comes up with a plan, and his name is Troy Lanske. An old family friend, Troy reluctantly agrees. But suddenly their pretend relationship starts to feel all too real. Can you say catastrophe? This one gave me lots of laughs and a new book boyfriend!
Hard as it Gets by Laura Kaye—I’m a big fan of Kaye’s work, so it was hard to pick just one. This book begins her Hard Ink series with a bang. I write romantic suspense, so naturally I’m a fan, but WOW! Kaye sets a pace that won’t let up and gets the reader so vested in the characters we have to keep turning those pages. Nick Rixey, former Special Forces, and Becca Merritt, nurse, are about as opposite as you can get—but boy do opposites attract!
Her Knight in Black Leather by J.M. Stewart—Stewart has been a favorite of mine for a while now, and I’ve read everything she’s written. I’ve never been disappointed, but since I had to choose just one…Cat Edwards is a self-professed wallflower. Michael Brant finds her beautiful, and the fact that she doesn’t know who he is can’t hurt either. What neither of them realizes is that one night is more than enough to fall in love—and only trouble can come from that. I fell for these characters from page one.
That Dating Thing by Mackenzie Crowne—Rylee Pierce is a dog trainer. Cooper Reed is a prosecutor. Rylee has a secret, and if Coop finds out what it is, it won’t be good. Crowne is a master at romance. I loved these two characters and rooted for their HEA every step of their very bumpy way. An added bonus for me—there’s a Great Dane in the story who provides the comic relief. Who doesn’t love a dog? I seldom re-read a novel, but I have to admit, this one was worth a second read.
There you have it! For what it’s worth—five of my favorite romance novels! I’d love to hear from you if you have a moment to leave a comment.
