Book Nine: Cowboy Heroes Series



USA Today best selling author Barbara McMahon has another book in her Cowboy Hero series. Each book is a stand alone book, with cowboy heroes being the tie in the series.

The last thing Kelsey Adams wanted was to deal with her ex-husband Jared Martin. But when an elderly relative leaves them each fifty percent of his cattle ranch, they have to agree on how to settle the inheritance.

Kelsey wants to move her bakery business to operate from the long-time family ranch, using it as the perfect setting for her brand: Grandma Mary’s.

Jared wants to continue in the ranching business, even though his acting career will keep him from Texas for months out of the year.

Can these two find a way to make it work for both of them?

A note from Barbara

Welcome to my website!

So glad you stopped by. I hope you’ll explore all of my website to learn about the romance novels I’ve written and a bit about me.  After years of writing contemporary romance novels, I ventured into an historical one, set in the English Regency period, and my latest, a romantic suspense book

It’s been said my books are emotionally heartfelt romance stories. I like to think I touch the heart of my characters and share their ups and downs on the rocky road to true happiness. Cowboys are my favorite heroes, but I also branch out to other areas and have written several romances with a Christian Inspiration theme–with more to come.

A couple of themes tie some books together.  The Cowboy Hero series always have a cowboy as the hero and are, of course, set in the American West. The Tropical Escape books have a sea setting–whether on a sloop in the Caribbean or some exotic tropical island I tried to capture the feel of sea breezes, warm waters and love.  And my Rocky Point books are all set in the fictitious town of Rocky Point, Maine.

Do check out some excerpts from different books. I hope you’ll find one or two that catch your fancy.

Let’s keep in touch. You can follow me on Facebook and Twitter.   Do please sign up for my Readers Group and I’ll let you know when I have new books coming out.  And do write and let me know how you like the books. I’d love to hear from you.
