The Deputy Laney Briggs
Series #1 
Jodi Linton

She’s dead-set on giving one bullheaded cowboy the boot.

Welcome to Pistol Rock, Texas where everyone knows secrets last about as long as the sporadic west Texas rain showers.

Laney Briggs has long been considered reckless, but she’s turned herself around—she’s respectably engaged and she’s become a Pistol Rock deputy sheriff. Everything’s fine until a dead body turns up and her ex, Texas Ranger Gunner Wilson, decides to stick his boots into the town’s first murder case.

Laney will be damned if she lets Gunner trample all over her turf and her chance at a quiet, contented life. His seemingly endless ability to undermine her resolve and her libido was only outdone by her constant urge to butt heads with him. But when the bodies start to pile up, Laney has to ask the lethal bad boy for a hand—and a truce in exchange for his help.

Having an ex-boyfriend as an ally might not be the best idea, but Laney has always been pretty reckless…

Warning: Contains a sassy female deputy with a knack for getting knee-deep in trouble; a sexy Texas Ranger hell-bent on winning his woman’s heart back; and an old love blazing a wildfire of passionate memories.

I've probably said this before but cowboys are my guilty reading pleasure. I'm thrilled that the author gives the heroine of this series, Deputy Laney Briggs some hot guys to choose from.

Laney Briggs is the sassy mouthed, kick-ass and beautiful deputy in the small town of Pistol Rock. A town, where gossip travels faster than the wind, where there is always something happening. Life is good for Laney – she's soon to be married to Nathan the handsome local vet who's steady and dependable. He doesn't exactly set her soul on fire, but he's safe and reliable and that is mostly comforting. Everything is swimmingly fine until a long gone cowboy who broke Laney's heart breezes back into town and into her life.

Gunner Wilson, a Texas Ranger is back in Pistol Rock and he's going to be exactly where he wants to be – near to the woman he's always loved, but somehow messed things up. However, there is a slight problem in that HIS woman is soon to marry the dullest guy in the whole of Western Texas and he wants her back. Nothing is straight-forward as he has a rival in his pursuit - Luke Wagner has his sights on Laney too.

When Gunner and Laney are together their chemistry is combustible. Their shared history recalls painful memories. Besides, Laney doesn't want to shake-up the life she has, to take-up with the sexy cowboy who left her. Neither does her fiancé want anyone taking his woman from him – not even for a bribe. With dead bodies turning up, crimes to solve Laney tries to distract herself with work. However, these cowboys are on her heels constantly...

Jodi Linton does a fantastic job not only creating protagonists that are multi-faceted but giving us an interesting and entertaining ensemble of supporting characters. For the most part this is a laugh-out loud, highly amusing read, but when necessary the author managed to get serious subject matter across in a sympathetic way. Highly recommend and can't wait for the next installment.

 Whatcha Gonna Do With a Cowboy
The Deputy Laney Briggs
Series #1.5
Jodi Linton

Some cowboys are worth getting dirty for.

In her latest adventure, sassy Deputy Laney Briggs discovers the local high school football coach passed out under the stadium bleachers wearing nothing but a smile…and his wife’s lingerie.

Things really start to get wild when she runs into the smoking hot Federal Marshal, Colt Larsen, snooping around the Granger’s house. Quicker than a cold snap comes and goes in Texas, Laney finds herself up to her eyeballs in a case involving a ruthless motorcycle gang, a Mexican drug cartel, a kidnapping, and a shoot-out to rival the O.K. Corral.

In over their heads, Laney calls in the big guns—her very own Texas Ranger, Gunner Wilson, who’s ready to fulfill every last one of her desires. But as things heat up between them, the stakes get higher than ever, and Gunner’s help may not be enough for Laney to get out alive…

Warning: Contains mind- blowing sex between a dirty-talking cowboy who loves to spank and a smart-mouth cowgirl who isn’t shy when it comes to demanding what she wants.

Growing up in a small Texas town didn't have many perks, but it allowed for some colorful writing material. After settling down with her family in central Texas, Jodi found her passion: writing kick-ass, southern contemporary romance stories. Today she can be found cozied up to the computer escaping into a quirky world of tall tales, sexy, tight jean wearing cowboys, and a protagonist with a sharp-tongue quick enough to hang any man out to dry.
