An Older Man Younger BBW Romance

Maggie

Taking the back roads from New York to California wasn't my best idea, especially since I have trouble paying attention to the little things…  like the needle on my fuel gauge. 

Not surprisingly, I find myself out of gas and out of luck one night in Oklahoma. 

But while help might have come faster on a major highway, it definitely wouldn't have come from the biggest, hottest, hunkiest, grouchiest cowboy I've ever met. 

When a short-term rescue turns into a longer-term cohabitation, I can't help falling for Augustus. Even if he's a big, old grouch to everyone else, he's an angel to me—strong, protective, caring, and a lot older than I am. 

But reaching California is a commitment I made to the one person who’s always loved me. How can I let her down now? I’ll have to leave Oklahoma. Even if it breaks my heart.


Augustus

It's been a long, long time since I've let anyone into my life. But then, I've never met a woman like Maggie.  

When I find her sleeping in her car by the side of the road, it takes all of two minutes to realize I’ve found a treasure. She bats her eyelashes in my direction, and the next thing I know, I'm inviting her into my home for the night. One night turns into two, and soon I’m hoping she’ll stay forever.

Maggie burns my bacon and spends more time asleep than anyone I've ever met, but she's also courageous, smart, caring, and all kinds of curvy. She's the Christmas present I never expected. 

I know she can't stay here in Oklahoma, but I'll do anything in my power to keep her safe and protected wherever she goes. 


Short enough to read in one sitting and long enough to satisfy, this trope-tastic, over-the-top, dual POV Christmas standalone is sweet, steamy, and full of old-fashioned cowboy nobility and goodness. It's also the longest, angstiest, gooiest story in the series. The love is insta, and the ending is HEA guaranteed.

02
A Curvy Halloween Romance

Ginger

Sneaking out to the old Barton homestead on Halloween was the stupidest idea ever. For one thing, the ranch is haunted by four hanged cowboys. For another, its current resident supposedly hacked his parents to pieces. 

Rain-soaked and terrified, I thought my night couldn't get worse than wandering the dark prairie on a paranormal investigation. 

I was wrong. 

When a ghostly rider causes me to take a nasty spill, my so-called friends abandon me to face my doom. 

Luckily, my doom includes the biggest, hottest, hunkiest, most handsome cowboy I've ever seen. 

Silas is strong, protective, caring, and a lot older than I am. But is he a murderer, too? 


Silas

All I want in life is to work and avoid the family curse. And if the residents of Wilkes could stop trespassing on my property every Halloween, that would be great, too. The townsfolk don't like me, and I don't much care for them either… but then I've never met Ginny before tonight. 

When she takes a hard fall trying to escape one of the infamous hanged cowboys, the intensity of my desire to help her takes me by surprise. 

I'll do anything in my power to keep Ginny safe and protected, including whisking her off to my home—over my shoulder, if necessary. Doesn't take long to figure out that I never want her to leave. Ginny is my perfect woman—brave, smart, sweet, and all kinds of curvy. Even if I've got more than a few years on her, she's the only woman I want. 

Unfortunately, my reputation precedes me. Ginny has a notion of who I am in her head already. I just have to convince her to trust her heart instead.


Short enough to read in one sitting and long enough to satisfy, this trope-tastic, over-the-top, dual POV Real Good Men of Oklahoma standalone is sweet, steamy, and full of old-fashioned cowboy nobility and goodness. The love is super insta, and the ending is HEA guaranteed. *Pumpkins not included.*

Callie

I’ve been working up to this my whole life—two and a half months of fieldwork collecting bug data under Professor Creeper's Bleeker's supervision. Look out, tiger beetles! Oklahoma, here I come!

Did slamming my car into a fence on my way to the host farm seem like a bad omen? Yes. Yes, it did... Until I was rescued by the biggest, hottest, handsomest man I’ve ever seen—with or without a cowboy hat. Nash is safe, strong, kind, and a lot older than I am. He’s everything I’ve ever wanted in a guy. Too bad he’ll never feel the same about me.

Nash

I wasn’t looking for anything or anyone when Callie Kady busted through my barbed wire, literally. But once I started looking at her, I couldn’t stop. She’s perfect—kind, hardworking, sweet, sassy, and all kinds of curvy. Even if she can’t fry an egg, she’s everything I’ve ever wanted in a woman, and I can cook just fine for both of us. There’s only one problem—besides her creepy professor. I’m way too old for Callie, and I refuse to break her heart.

Short enough to read in one sitting and long enough to satisfy, this unapologetically trope-tastic little dual POV standalone is sweet, steamy, and full of old-fashioned cowboy nobility and goodness. The love is insta, and the ending is HEA guaranteed.

An Older Man Younger BBW Romance

Molly

One year ago, a chance encounter with a mysterious cowboy in my local grocery store gave me the strength and courage I needed to change my life. I've worked hard at building a future I can be proud of ever since—one that doesn't include my loser ex-husband. 

I love my new life, but I do have one regret—I let my dairy aisle hero slip away before I could get his name. 

So when he shows up at the ER where I work, it seems fate has given me a second chance with the biggest, hottest, hunkiest, most handsome cowboy I've ever seen. 

Jasper is strong, protective, caring, and a lot older than I am. And bonus—he loves animals. 

He's a good man. 

He's what I want. 

He's what I need.

Or he could be... if my ex-husband doesn't ruin everything. 

Jasper

One year ago, I turned a corner at the Wilkes General Store and found an angel crying near the yogurt display. I should've forgotten her by now, but I can't seem to get that gorgeous girl out of my head... or my heart. Since I don't know her name, she seems destined to exist in my memory alone. 

When an unlucky fall at the rodeo turns into a lucky encounter with Molly, things seem to be falling into place perfectly. That is until her loser ex-husband starts making trouble.

I'll do anything I can to keep Molly safe and protected, including opening my home to her. Of course, once she's there, I never want her to leave. Molly is my perfect woman—kind, caring, sweet, smart, and curvy. Even if I'm way too old for her, she's the only woman I want. 

Unfortunately, I'm not the only man who feels that way. But I'll be damned before I let anyone hurt her again.


Short enough to read in one sitting and long enough to satisfy, this trope-tastic little dual POV standalone is sweet, steamy, and full of old-fashioned cowboy nobility and goodness. The love is insta(ish), and the ending is HEA guaranteed.



05
An Older Man Younger BBW Romance

Adeline

The Sumner family sticks together come hell or high water, so it's no surprise when I'm summoned home to Wilkes to work on my brother's election campaign. It's also not my idea of a good time. Neither is going door-to-door on behalf of my mother's favorite child (hint: it's not me). 

Canvassing is bad enough when there's a fifty-fifty shot a voter will like your candidate. It's pure torture when your target isn't a fan. Ian Meyer is gruff, grouchy, and definitely not Team Sumner. But he's also the president of the local Cattlemen's League, and his endorsement would carry a lot of weight in the ranching community. When I venture out to Ian's ranch in an ill-fated attempt to win him over, I'm expecting him to give me a hard time. I'm not expecting the biggest, hottest, hunkiest, most foul-mouthed cowboy I've ever met. 

There are a lot of things that might keep us apart: a century-old family feud, my mother's bad behavior, or even the simple fact that Ian is a lot older than I am. But when he's not out cussing broken farm machinery or storming into election headquarters, Ian is sweet and protective and more honest with me than anyone else in my life, and I want to be with him long after the votes are cast.


Ian

Never trust a Sumner. It's a lesson I learned early in life, reinforced by every encounter I've ever had with that family. Most recently, their sleazy son saw fit to sell out a few area ranchers. Not a wise move in Wilkes. I've sent his campaign volunteers packing before, so when an angel shows up at my place asking to talk, I'm not expecting another of Carter Sumner's lackeys, much less his sister. Disappointment is a bitter pill. 

But most people are more than they appear to be. It doesn't take long to figure out that Adeline is talented, courageous, smart, sweet, and all kinds of curvy.  She's also just as unhappy with her family as I am, and I'll do everything in my power to set her free.


Short enough to read in one sitting and long enough to satisfy, this trope-tastic, over-the-top little dual POV standalone is sweet, steamy, and full of old-fashioned cowboy nobility and goodness. The love is insta, and the ending is HEA guaranteed.

An Older Man Younger BBW Romance

Chloe

My sister promised me the perfect summer—three months hanging out together with her new baby on her hunky husband’s family farm in Oklahoma. Three months without my father harassing me to pick up extra shifts at work or scowling at me from his recliner. A whole summer of cute cows and pretty pastures and handsome cowboys to look at. 

Sure, the biggest, hottest, handsomest of those cowboys humiliated me at my sister’s wedding a year ago, but I can’t really blame him—he’s strong and gorgeous and so much older than me. I should’ve asked permission before I tried to kiss him. It was a foolish impulse in a foolish moment, and it might have ended badly, but I know I’ll keep that kiss in my heart forever. 


Liam

One year ago, Chloe Kady rocked my world with a single kiss, and I haven’t stopped thinking of her since—even if I turned her down in the worst way possible. It’s bad enough she’s coming to stay at the farm for three months, but Nash asking me to drive down to Florida and pick her up is an epic nightmare. 

Chloe is my perfect woman—sweet, devoted, smart, and sassy. Her gorgeous curves drive me to distraction whenever we’re in the same room… which is a lot more often than I’d expected. I’d love to make her mine, but I’m way too old for her, and she hates my guts for what I did the night she kissed me. I don’t know if I can fix that last part, but I’ll die tryin’.


Short enough to read in one sitting and long enough to satisfy, this trope-tastic little dual-POV standalone is sweet, super-steamy, and full of old-fashioned cowboy nobility and goodness. The love is (mostly) insta, and the ending is HEA guaranteed.

An Older Man Younger BBW Romance

Iris

It's been a long, lonely few years of scrimping and saving and not getting by. So spending my shift flirting with the mysterious cowboy in the corner booth is probably the closest I'll ever come to going on vacation... until my cowboy's chivalrous tendencies get me fired. 

But Ansel Clark isn't the kind of man who walks away from his mistakes. When he offers me a job and a safe place to stay, it seems fate has given me a second chance with the biggest, hunkiest, most handsome cowboy I've ever seen. 

The only problem? I flat-out refuse to fall in love with my boss.

Ansel is strong, protective, caring, and a lot older than I am.  

He's a good man. 

He's what I want. 

He's what I need.

Or he would be... if I wasn't his new employee. 

Ansel

I've gotten used to loneliness. Don't get me wrong, I love my son, but something's missing... Something I never expected to find in the Wilkes Diner.

Yet, here I am… entirely enchanted by the angel behind the counter. 

Iris McMinn has sky-blue eyes and sharp mind, and there's not a thing about her that don't leave me breathless. 

But when my over-protective actions cost my angel her job, I'll do anything to make it right... including offering her a position in my home. Of course, once she's there, I never want her to leave. Iris is the perfect woman—kind, caring, sweet, smart, and curvy. Even if I'm way too old for her, she's the only one I want. 

Short enough to read in one sitting and long enough to satisfy, this trope-tastic little dual POV standalone is sweet, steamy, and full of old-fashioned cowboy nobility and goodness. The love is insta, and the ending is HEA guaranteed.

Silas

Five years ago, Ginger Davis trespassed on my property and captured my heart. Since then, my love for her has only grown, just like our little family. But life is all about change, and it’s hard to see the path forward when you’re walking through a snowstorm.

After an old colleague offers me a job in California, Ginny and I face some tough choices about what we want for our future. And when a lovers’ stop on the way home from a dance leaves us stranded in the middle of a winter squall, nothing but love, trust, and a little supernatural assist will set us free.

No matter what, Ginny remains my perfect woman—kind, hardworking, sweet, and all kinds of curvy. Plus, she likes to play my favorite cowboy games, even if she’s still learning how to tell me what she wants. Tonight might be exactly what she needs to realize how strong she really is.


Ginger

Five years after he rescued me from a sprained ankle and a “ghost” cowboy, Silas Barton is still the biggest, hottest, most handsome man I've ever seen, with or without his favorite lasso. He's still my best friend and my love. But life has a way of making you doubt yourself. Add a family and career, and things can get a little stormy.

Now, he has a chance to take his career to the next level. All I have to do is give him my blessing… If I can make myself do it. With a choice this big looming over us, we desperately need some time alone to figure things out. Taking a private detour on the way home from a dance seems like the perfect way to reconnect… and rile him up—even though I know there’ll be consequences. I’m just not expecting those consequences to include getting stuck in the middle of nowhere on a winter’s night.


*This story is a follow-up to Creeping a Cowboy, which came out last October. It can be read as a standalone.*

Super short & steamy, this trope-tastic, over-the-top, dual POV holiday standalone is candy cane sweet, extra spicy, and full of old-fashioned cowboy nobility and goodness… with a twist. Don't worry! The love is still intense (insta-love lasts, y'all). And, yes, the ending is HEA guaranteed.

Rosie

I am a woman with a plan.

Work. College. Teaching job. Life... All in that exact order. 

There’s no room in my timeline for biggest, sweetest, handsomest cowboy I’ve ever met. 

Or his gentle giant of a dog.

Former soldier Billy Hicks is safe, strong, caring, and a lot older than I am. Honestly, he’s everything I could hope for in a man. But I learned my lesson after the last guy I trusted left me in the lurch. This time, nothing can come between me and my plan for the future... Except maybe a sprained wrist.

 

Billy

I never expected to meet the woman of my dreams in the Saddle Stiff Bar. But then, I wasn’t expecting to pick up a new puppy there either.  The puppy, I can handle—even if he is part horse. 

The woman is trickier. 

She’s perfect—sweet, smart, hardworking, and all kinds of curvy. She’s got a past that makes her nervous about the future. When she takes a nasty spill at work, I’ll do everything in my power to make her comfortable while she’s healing. And once she’s better, I’ll do everything I can to make her mine.


Short enough to read in one sitting and long enough to satisfy, this trope-tastic little dual POV standalone is sweet, steamy, and full of old-fashioned cowboy nobility and goodness. The love is insta, and the ending is HEA guaranteed.

A Curvy Meets Cowboy Romance


Eli

These woods have always been my playground.

I learned to be a man here—hunting, hiking, and camping.

Through the years, I’ve found countless treasures amongst these trees. But I’ve never found anything as magical as Olivia… even if she did startle the deer with all her stomping around.

Lost and injured, she’ll need my help to make her way back to civilization. The trouble is, once she’s in my cabin—and in my heart—I don’t want to let her go. Olivia Williams is smart, sweet, sexy, and all kinds of curvy. She’s my perfect woman.

I’m not the kind of man who believes in fate, but I can’t help feeling as though the woods brought her here for me. Maybe they’ll help me convince her to stay.


Olivia

It should’ve been a simple assignment: search out a famously haunted homestead in the woods and write a five-hundred-word article about it.

Easy peasy, right?

Wrong. First of all, I came out here alone. Second, I’m used to navigating the concrete jungle, not the Ozark Mountains.

It’s no surprise I got lost.

The real shock is my rescuer.

I fully expected to meet a ghost in the forest; I did not expect to meet the man of my dreams.

Eli Henson is the biggest, hottest, hunkiest, most caring cowboy I’ve ever met. I have a life in the city—an apartment, a work wife, and a deadline. I have plenty of reasons to kiss Eli goodbye, but I’m not sure I want to leave him behind.

The woods brought me to Eli. Maybe they’ll give me an excuse to stay.


Short enough to read in one sitting and long enough to satisfy, this trope-tastic, over-the-top little dual POV, standalone micro-romance is sweet, steamy, and full of old-fashioned cowboy nobility and goodness. The love is insta, and the ending is HEA guaranteed. *Note: the stories in this series are shorter and spicier than those in the Real Good Men of Oklahoma series.*
