Texas Twist by Cynthia D’Alba


RCovereal bad boys can grow up to be real  good men.
Hit hard by  the death of her parents, Paige Ryan needs to figure out what to do with her  life. She moves to  whispering Springs, Texas, to be near her step-brother. But  just as she starts to get her life on track, the last man she ever wanted to see again sends it right back off the rails.
Cash Montgomery was on the cusp of having it all. Three bull riding titles, fame, fortune and respect from his family. Until a bad bull leaves him injured, angry and searching for comfort at the bottom of a bottle. With nowhere to go, he moves into his sister-in-law’s old ranch house in Whispering Springs—which he’s surprised to find already occupied.
As Cash  rebuilds the dilapidated home and Paige starts out on her medical career, their
old friendship begins to reemerge and sparks are ignited. Paige knows that Cash is nothing but a heartache waiting to happen. But maybe this bad boy has grown up to be a real good man?
Warning: Watch out for falling  lumber, falling in holes, and falling for the wrong guy…again. You can leave  your hard hat on.

Red Pump Romance Reviews

NEW Red Pump Final2

Amy Woods hits a home run with her debut novel, His Texas Forever Family.

I fell in love with Liam Campbell and his caring spirit from the very beginning. Using his unique skills of art-therapy to help children work through emotional tragedy and trauma, he touched my heart and had me rooting for him!

Paige Graham is a tough cookie herself, raising her son as a single mother after the death of her husband. Working her way up to assistant principal. I admire her ability to stand strong and objective, even offering Liam an apology after calling him on the carpet, in front of his students, his first day on the job.

Ms. Woods gives her characters depth and immediate appeal to the reader. A sweet romance that will have you hooked from the beginning!  I’m looking forward to her next release, Finding His Lone Star Love, coming from Harlequin January 2015.


His Texas Forever Family gets FIVE red pumps!




Paige Graham only has room for one man in her life—her son, Owen. The little boy hasn’t spoken since his father died, but things change when he meets his new art teacher, Liam Campbell. Paige can’t help marveling at the progress Owen makes while working with his instructor—and Mr. Campbell isn’t exactly hard on the eyes, either!

New to Peach Leaf, Texas, Liam is captivated by his beautiful boss—who is none other than Paige! He can’t risk his job or his future by falling for his supervisor, but there is just something about her he can’t resist. Thanks to Liam’s lessons, Owen is on the road to recovery. Now if only Liam can show Paige that the best way to heal her heart is to open herself to love again….

Red Pump Romance Reviews

NEW Red Pump Final2I’ve wanted to read a Rachel Gibson book for a long time, so when this one came available, I signed up as quickly as I could.

What I Love About You is a contemporary romance charged with lots of electricity. From the moment Natalie (single mom) meets Blake (ex-Navy Seal) the attraction reaches from within the pages and grabs you.

I love the way Natalie’s attraction to Blake ‘awakens’ a response that had been dormant since her divorce. She’s a dedicated mother to a wonderful little girl and puts everyone’s needs before her own. It’s about time someone came along to cheer her on and be in her corner.

Blake has demons in his own past that he’s trying to get over when he thinks he’s moved into a small town and buys a secluded property. But he just can’t resist the draw he feels toward Natalie, even if the last thing he wants is to involve himself with a woman who has a child.

The secondary star of the novel is Sparky, the puppy that gets dumped in Blake’s truck while he’s at the grocery store. ‘Sharing’ the puppy between homes gives both of them an excuse to continuously have contact with each other.

Pick up a copy of What I Love About You.  I definitely recommend it!  Lots of sizzle, wit, and moments of personal healing for both main characters. Plus a humorous/interesting set of secondary personalities that add richness to the story.

Ex-high school cheerleader Natalie Cooper could once shake her pom-poms with the best of them. But she’s paid for all that popularity—her husband’s run off with what’s left of their money and a twenty-year-old bimbo named Tiffany. Leaving Natalie to manage a photo store and having to see some pictures she, well, really shouldn’t.


Then she comes toe-to-manly chest with Blake Junger. Exiled to a remote cabin in Truly, Idaho, Blake wants nothing to do with anyone. Instead, he’s determined to struggle with his demons and win—all on his own. But the last thing he needs is Natalie distracting him with her luscious curves and breaking down the barriers of his heart.

Rachel Gibson

Rachel Gibson lives in Idaho with her husband, three kids, two cats and a dog of mysterious origin. She began her fiction career at age 16, when she ran her car into the side of a hill, retrieved the bumper, and drove to a parking lot, where she strategically scattered the car’s broken glass all about. She told her parents she’d been the victim of a hit and run and they believed her. She’s been making up stories ever since, although she gets paid better for them nowadays.
