Cover Reveal for The Trouble with Cowboys!

We’re so excited to share in Melissa’s big day….  Her first book cover release!!!

We’ll let her take it from here… 🙂

Melissa Cutler here. In celebration of Hot Cowboy Appreciation Month (which is pretty much every month for me), I’m thrilled to share the hot-off-the-press cover of my October 2012 release, THE TROUBLE WITH COWBOYS:


So hot, right? How about if I sweeten the pot even more and tell you he’s an organic, grass-fed beef cattle rancher with a secret? He also happens to be the main supplier of the newest chef in town, a failed contestant of a televised chef competition show who has a weakness for Stetsons and boots.


Here’s the back cover blurb:

It was their parents’ ranch, through the good days and the bad. But if they want to hang on to their land, their pride, and their family, the three Sorentino sisters will have to reinvent it from the ground up–and one of them just may reinvent herself in the process…

Cowboys have never been good for Amy Sorentino. First her hard-riding father bankrupted the family farm. Then her all-hat-no-cowboy boyfriend sold her out on national television, ending her promising career as a chef. Now she and her squabbling sisters have partnered up in a final attempt to save their land by starting an inn and local restaurant. So it figures that with everything on the line, Amy’s key supplier is just the kind of Stetson-tipping heartbreaking bad boy she’s sworn to avoid. But Kellan Reed has a few secrets of his own–and cowboy or not, Amy can’t resist this kind of wild ride…

THE TROUBLE WITH COWBOYS is available for pre-order:
