Barrel racer Celia Lawson knows better than to tangle with bull rider Kyle Gilchrist. The sexy cowboy's love 'em and leave 'em ways have earned him a reputation on the rodeo circuit, and he's always seen her as his best friend's kid sister. But after one wild, tequila-fueled night, Celia wakes up to find out she's gotten herself hitched--to a man she never should have married
When Celia insists on an annulment, Kyle has no good reason to say no--except he isn't ready to let go of his new bride. But then Kyle inherits a sprawling Wyoming ranch, and seizes the opportunity to enlist Celia's help. She agrees to lend a hand--with two conditions: He has to get up to speed as a rancher within six months; then they'll get a divorce. And their marriage will be in name only.
Kyle gives in to Celia's demand, yet he's ready to prove to her he has what it takes to turn their one night rodeo into a lifetime of love....

James’s fourth Blacktop Cowboys erotic contemporary western (after Wrangled and Tangled) takes readers on a satisfying ride. Celia Lawson hit the barrel-racing circuit to make her way in the world when she realized her brothers would make a success of their inherited family ranch without her. After taking a rough fall and boosting the painkillers with booze, she wakes up the next morning in Vegas, hung over and—to her complete shock—married to her childhood tormentor, bull rider Kyle Gilchrist. She demands an annulment, but Kyle, who’s wanted her for years, thinks they should stick it out. After he inherits a ranch out of the blue, he seduces Celia with the promise of running it together and exploring their sizzling chemistry. While James is known for erotic interludes, she never forgets to bolster the story with plenty of emotional power. Agent: Scott Miller, Trident Media Group. (Aug.)
