Title:  Welcome to Paradise, A Paradise Ranch Novella
Publisher:  Roane Publishing
Release Date:  August 18, 2014
Keywords:  Contemporary, Erotic, Romance, Western, Novella, Series

Just three days before her thirtieth birthday, Acquisition Editor for Starling Press, Sutton Callaway, has buried the last of her family in the cemetery on the plot of land she inherited.

After turning down the powerful and wealthy owner of Triple Bar-S Ranch to sell her inheritance and walk away from the obligations of running one of the biggest cattle ranches in West Texas, Sutton puts her Dallas condo on the market, resigns her position from SP, packs the contents of her life into boxes, and heads for the one place filled with bittersweet memories—Paradise Ranch.

Will Sutton be able to handle the pressures of being the newly appointed cattle baroness, the rough and tumble men under her employ, and the temptation of a sexy mystery man? Or will her grandmother’s matriarchal boots be too big for her to fill?

Maya's Review

An interesting opener to the series. We get introduced to sexy cowboys and ranch hands and Sutton nearly gets mowed down by a bull, as she familiarizes herself to the family ranch after her grandmother dies and she has to take over her inheritance. 

As this is quite short and ends in a cliff-hanger, it feels more like the first chapter of a novel rather than a novella since there isn't a middle or ending yet. But the prospects and the potential conflicts (a possible love triangle and intrigue around a rival ranch) makes me want to read on. Let's hope there isn't long to wait for other parts of the series.

I’ve been one of those lucky people and have had the chance to travel quite a bit, and one of the places I’ve visited a lot is Texas. My BFF and some of my family lived in various places there during my wandering years. *Smiles* Let me tell you there are some great places to visit.
London’s top ten places to visit while in Texas:
1.      The River Walk in downtown San Antonio
2.    The Alamo
3.    Sea World of San Antonio
4.    San Antonio Missions National park
5.     Houston Museum of Natural Science
6.    Natural Bridge Caverns
7.     The Dallas World Aquarium
8.    Houston Space Center
9.    Six Flags. Awesome rollercoaster rides

10.                        Galveston Island

London wrote her first short story in the second grade. Her teacher informed her parents she had a big imagination, and as far as he was concerned, having a big imagination wasn’t necessarily a good thing, so she placed her vivid characters, her childhood stories, along with her imagination on the shelf, where they would wither for a while. After all, she needed to grow up and do the “sensible thing.” 

Life moved on, London grew up, and the sensible thing earned London a degree in Psychology. She took a serious job in the real world, doing serious things and being a responsible adult, although the need to be a little irresponsible crept in. As a result, she started scribbling again. 

Happy to find her imagination was still alive and kicking, she decided to pursue writing, walked away from doing the sensible thing, took on the world of the written word, and has never looked back!
