Shirlene Dalton has it all: a dream marriage to a man who spoils her rotten and the most outrageous mansion Bramble, Texas, has ever seen. But when her husband unexpectedly dies, Shirlene finds herself right back where she started-in a rundown trailer on the wrong side of the tracks. Never the type to let a little bad luck and a whole heap of heartache get her down, Shirlene is ready to prove to the local gossips she can make it on her own . . . until she ends up living next door to the most tempting cowboy in town.
Billy Wilkes has a score to settle and a plan to wipe Bramble right off the map. But when his sexy, redheaded neighbor figures out what he’s up to, his good ol’ boy charm won’t be enough to save him. With the town on his tail, Billy will have to come clean quick-or kiss Shirlene goodbye.
Ms. Lane picks up directly where she left off in Bramble, Texas, with Catch Me a Cowboy. Shirlene Dalton rose high from her trailer-park childhood only to fall back to it when her husband unexpectedly dies and his company is threatened by creditors. William Cates, known as Bubba Wilkes by the townspeople, came to Bramble with revenge on his mind. He plans the town's demise by buying Dalton Oil, but living next to Shirlene's trailer he sees a different side to the woman he calls a gold digger.
We, like Bubba/Billy, learn there's more to Shirlene than meets the eye in Catch Me a Cowboy. I for one am glad to have had the opportunity. The secondary cast, however, really make this series for me. They complain, speculate, and take hilarious action when necessary. Love them all!
