Trouble in Paradise
A Paradise Ranch Novel
Contemporary Romance, Erotic, Western
by London Saint James
Publisher: Roane Publishing
Release Date: February 15, 2016
If you know what’s good for you, you’ll go back to Dallas.
Since coming home Sutton has inherited herself a heap of headaches, two bossy men who want her for their own, threatening notes, and a whole lot of trouble in Paradise.
Having Doc McNab as competition, being ten years Sutton’s senior, and under her employ, meant the deck was stacked against Flint Palmer when it came to winning the sexy, vivacious Sutton as his woman. No way would she be interested in an old, worn-out, ex-rodeo cowboy like him, but that wasn’t going to stop the man from trying.
With the exception of the pretty as a picture, Sutton Callaway, Kale McNab’s childhood sucked. He’d been jerked up more so than raised by his ex-convict of a father, eventually leaving the girl and West Texas behind. Now, he’s all grown and back in Sutton’s life, willing to do whatever it takes to stay there.

“So, the little woman needs a big strong man to fight her battles for her?”

“I never said that, darlin’. I know you can hold your own.” He winked. “Especially since I’ve been privy to your sharp witted tongue.” A wicked little smirk hit her. “Case in point: our conversation when I called you last Friday and invited you out for drinks at the Spoke.”

She grinned, recalling what she’d told him.

“I believe you said—”

“I said, I’d rather come down with a severe case of dysentery and be doubled over with cramps than to have drinks with you, Kale McNab.”

He chortled. “I have to say, I’ve been shot down by beautiful women before, but having one tell me she’d rather be racked with stomach pain and plagued with diarrhea than go out with me, was a first.”

One thought entered her mind and floated there as they drove through the two rock columns that outlined the entrance to the ranch. And it had nothing to do with their conversation about her smart mouth, a disease of the lower intestine, or the fact she was almost home. No. The thing hovering inside her head was Kale McNab—of the muscle-packed, tight T-shirt, worn-jean wearing, chiseled features, head-turning type of man—considered her to be a beautiful woman.

Sutton glanced down her torso to see a faded T-Shirt and old cutoff jeans, then began twirling a piece of the frayed denim tickling her upper thigh around the end of her finger. She knew what he really saw seated next to him was a sweaty, bedraggled-haired, no makeup wearing woman.

Yeah. He’s a devil. Only one with a silver tongue, she thought, holding back the smile threatening to break free.

After propping up the hood, Sutton stood on her tip toes, waved a hand about in an effort to keep the smoke from her face, and glanced at the guts of the truck—as if she would know what she was looking for. She supposed the doing made her feel as if she were taking proactive measures about the situation, until the coughing started. Perhaps sticking her head beneath the hood hadn’t been the best idea.



Covering her nose with one hand, still swiping the foul air with the other, she took a step back. The breeze kicked up and blew another puff of nasty at her. She coughed yet again and stomped a booted foot on the pavement, irritated.

Kale’s morning had royally sucked. He hated when he had to put down an animal, and as a result, he’d pretty much been in a mood when Flint called him about Maeflower. He sure hoped he didn’t have to put two horses down in the same day, a fact he’d been grumbling about under his breath when he jumped in his truck. But after leaving his office and driving down Main Street, he saw something with the potential to vastly improve his afternoon.


The corner’s of Kale’s mouth turned up into a smile as he pulled his F-150 dual cab into the parking lot of Dunning’s, watching Sutton Callaway doing the hippy, hippy, shake in tight daisy dukes, a faded turquoise T-shirt, and turquoise cowgirl boots.

God bless Texas.
