Kickin It with CARLA CASSIDY *Harlequin Summer Happiness*

New York Times bestselling author Carla Cassidy kicks off another gripping Colton romance in cowboy country! 

After years in hiding, Josie Colton has her life back. But to settle a family promise, she must find an old clue buried at the Colton Valley Ranch. She enlists the help of ranch foreman Tanner Grange—in exchange for working as his twin toddlers' new nanny. On their search, the single dad soon begins to lasso Josie's heart. 

Tanner agrees to assist Josie and is alarmed by how the Colton beauty fits so perfectly into his life. He's got his hands full investigating the disappearance of his boss and caring for his little girls. When it's clear someone will kill to stop Josie from uncovering the clue, Tanner vows to protect her…for life!

           Love Lessons learned from Colton Cowboy Hideout
There are recurring themes in almost all of my books when it comes to the love story and they are lessons I hope resonate with my readers.  One of the big love lessons is to be vulnerable. You have to check old emotional baggage at the door and be willing to be completely vulnerable in love.
In Colton Cowboy Hideout, Tanner is holding on to old heartaches and it isn’t until he lets them go that he’s open and ready to accept Josie’s love.
I also hope some of the love lessons in my book teaches the importance of compromise and the need to sometimes put somebody else’s needs and wants before your own.  Falling in love is easy, but staying in love takes hard work and commitment. My heroes and heroines always live happily-ever-after and that’s what I want for all of my readers!
