[Free eBook] Stark Naked by Desiree Holt [Contemporary Western Romance]

The series is set in Texas, and is centred around various members of the Stark family who own a ranch. NB: Apparently despite the suggestive series titling, these are merely steamy and fall under the aegis of Entangled’s “regular” contemporary imprint rather than whatever they call the more erotic one. YMMV.

This story features an awkward meet cute between a woman visiting her college friend at the Texas ranch, and the friend’s obligatory hot brother, who strives to convince her not to let that first impression get in the way of their potentially getting together.

Offered worldwide, available at multiple retailers.
