Click on the banner for the full schedule.
Welcome to my post for the The Cowboy and the Angel book tour! I have an excerpt coming up, as well as a giveaway for copies of Rodeo Queen. But, first, allow me to introduce the book:

The Cowboy and the Angel
Release date: August 5, 2014
Publisher: Avon Impulse
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Series: Rodeo #2

From our NaNoWriMo author T. J. Kline comes the stunning follow up to RODEO QUEEN. When a sexy cowboy falls for a not-so-angelic reporter, secrets and sparks abound.

Reporter Angela McCallister needs the scoop of her career in order to save her father from his bad decisions that have depleted their savings. When the chance to spend a week at the Findley Brothers ranch arises, she sees a chance to get a behind-the-scenes scoop on rodeo. That certainly doesn’t include kissing the devastatingly handsome and charming cowboy, Derek Chandler, who insists on calling her angel.

Derek has a rodeo to run and a chip on his shoulder. He has no time for the fiery woman who is clearly hiding something. But for some reason he can’t keep his hands off of her. Their connection is instant and explosive but Angela’s secrets could threaten his family and Derek needs to prove that he’s not the irresponsible kid brother anymore.

When the rodeo dust has settled, will the Cowboy and his Angel allow themselves to give in to the attraction that threatens to consume them both?

Excerpt:

She chewed at her lower lip. Handsome as he was, it wasn’t his looks that continued to pull her eyes to his frame standing in the pasture. She couldn’t explain it but when they’d flirted over the gate at the rodeo arena, she’d seen something familiar in his eyes. She’d recognized the same haunted look she knew was in hers. They shared a sad desperation most people didn’t show. In those few moments of conversation, she knew they had both unwillingly shared an unspoken secret neither meant to reveal. Even during their faux seduction, they’d been unable to hide their desire for something more.

Angela suddenly realized Silvie was still talking to her but she’d missed the conversation. “I’m sorry, what were you saying?” She moved away from the window, letting the curtain fall.

Silvie walked to the window and glanced outside, a knowing smile gracing her lips. “I said, Sydney is Scott’s wife. She’s our horse trainer. Scott is Derek’s older brother,” she clarified. “You’ve already met Jen, his sister, and her husband, Clay, last weekend, right?”

“This morning at the arena.” Angela nodded.

Silvie walked back to the door and glanced at Angela over her shoulder, bracing her hand on the doorframe. “You’ll find we’re a close family. We take care of each other.”

Angela wasn’t sure if Silvie was issuing a warning or a promise.
