Book Blast --- Kidnapped Cowboy ---- Lindsey Brookes

Retired rodeo star, Dalton Barnes, gets the surprise of his life when he’s abducted by a soft-spoken female with a ‘gun’ and taken to the retreat his family owns. He soon learns she’s kidnapped the wrong cowboy by mistake. She wanted his brother. Things go from bad to worse when a late spring snowstorm strands them together at the cabin. But it’s during their snow-in that Dalton learns why Caitlin has gone to such lengths to save Stoney Brook. Having had issues with his older brother himself and a not so happy past, Dalton promises to do what he can to help her.

When confronted Brandon tells Dalton he’ll hold off on his plans for the retreat, but only if Dalton agrees to stick around and help run it. Keeping his promise to Caitlin, Dalton agrees and what starts out as a common goal to turn the troubled teens’ lives around that summer ends up turning theirs around as well. Can a man who has always avoided putting down roots and a woman with a deep-seated fear of abandonment hang on to the happiness they’ve found together? Or will the past return to threaten their newfound love?

Love, laughter and a heartwarming read…

After countless attempts to speak with the owner of the retreat for troubled teens she runs on the outskirts of Lone Tree, Montana, Caitlin Myers resorts to kidnapping Brandon ‘The Ogre of Lone Tree’ Barnes in a desperate attempt to change his mind about turning Stoney Brook into a vacation resort for the wealthy.

 He never ceased to amaze her.  She had spent all those years getting her degree in psychology, yet Dalton came up with the best explanations for life’s situations, motivating them with his words.  Her heart swelled with love for him.

Love?  There it was again.  Come back to reality, Caitlin. Stop wishing for what you can’t ever have.

“Well, this was fun,” she said with a clap of her hands, pushing her thoughts of Dalton aside.  “Time to get washed up.”

“Not so fast,” Dalton called out, motioning for her to join him inside the corral.

He wasn’t really going to make her do this.  Was he?

The teens began cheering her on.

Dalton crooked a long finger.  “Let’s go partner.”

“Come on, Miss Myers.  We had a deal,” Jimmy reminded her.

“We did,” she agreed, “But there’s really no sense in us even trying.  You’ve all seen how fast Squealer there can run.  He’s Olympic material.  I say we just call it a day.”

She started to turn away, but her attempt to escape was quickly thwarted by the finger hooking through the belt loop of her jeans.

“Oh, no you don’t.”

She let out a squeal that rivaled the ones the pig had let out.  “Dalton!”  How had he gotten to her so quickly?  It didn’t matter.  She was not going to chase a pig.  “I can’t do this.”

“Yes, you can.”  He took her by the hand and helped her between the rails and into the corral.

The cheering around them grew louder.  How could she let them down?  She couldn’t and that was that.  She had to suck it up and keep her promise.

“All right, kids,” Dalton hollered, “get ready to see a couple of pros in action.”

“You’re gonna get it for this,” she warned through clenched teeth as they advanced on the pig who stood watching them from the other side of the muddy corral.

“And I look forward to getting it from you, but you’re gonna have to control your urges until we’re done here.  Right now I have a pig to catch.”

She gave him a swift elbow to the ribs, just hard enough to get her message across.  Then a whistle blew and the chase began.



Lindsey will be awarding a $10 Amazon GC to a randomly drawn commenter during the tour.

Cover Reveal ---Just Breathe --- Rachel Campbell

Release Date: July 2013
Genre: New Adult


For Savannah Rae, living life without her parents was unimaginable. But being blamed for her first love’s suicide? That destroyed every part of who she was.

Gone were the days of innocence, happiness, and dreams. Now her days simply meant attempting to survive. In her mind, her only means for that was replacing her grief with men, booze and the fast life. And for five years, it worked.

When an opportunity to leave the nightmares of her past in Australia opens up, she takes it. Los Angeles beckons - with hopes of late nights, new beginnings, and the promise of a string of endless men to distract her, she can’t wait to dive in.

One thing she didn’t count on was meeting her match.

In the eyes of outsiders, Tate Connors has it all; the ultimate LA bachelor who is content with his lifestyle of wild nights, women and one night stands. He's Mr. Unpredictable with looks that could destroy any woman with one glance.

The craziness of Los Angeles throws them into the chaotic path of each other. Savannah becomes the perfect game, and Tate becomes the ultimate prey. Lines are crossed, emotions are smashed, and the idea of who they truly are begins to be tangled.

However, one thing will become clear.

They are more alike than either one could ever have imagined.


Rachel Campbell is from a coastal town on the east coast of Australia where beaches, kangaroos and surfers roam free. She writes angst ridden love stories with a pinch of craziness, a dash of drama, a cup of romance, a spoonful of sexiness and the main ingredient hot guys. Rachel sometimes forgets to eat, sometimes forgets to sleep and sometimes can’t remember the last time she cleaned her apartment but that’s because she is in a long term relationship with her laptop and they are constantly writing together.  When she does step away from her laptop she can be found taking too many photos, making scrumptious cocktails, laughing at Adam Sandler movies and spending her time with her amazing family and friends. With her first novel, Just Breathe, due to be released in July 2013, her dream of releasing a book will become reality. With another three books already taking up her mind, she cannot wait to start this crazy ride.
