Dead Heat Ranch Novella, #0.5
Note: This novella was previously published in the Some Like It Hot Anthology. Although the story has not changed, this version contains a short bonus scene.
New York Times bestselling author Nicole Edwards is heating things up with Boots Optional, a sexy new ménage novella which is the first book in a hot new series called Dead Heat Ranch.
Grace Lambert is familiar with hard work, long days, and handsome cowboys. She’s been working for her family’s dude ranch since she was old enough to ride a horse and she’s not afraid to get her hands dirty. What she is afraid of is the heat that’s been generating between her and not one, but two sexy cowboys who’ve set their sights on her. And each other.
Grant Kingsley and Lane Miller have both had their eyes on Gracie for years, but the feisty cowgirl has managed to keep them at bay. As far as they are concerned, cowboys don’t give up, and neither of them is ready to give up just yet. Not on her and not on the heat that transpires between the two of them.
Find out what happens when the sultry Texas nights get as hot as the fierce Texas days.

Dead Heat Ranch, #1
New York Times bestselling author Nicole Edwards is continuing to heat things up with Betting on Grace, a sexy new ménage novel which is the first book in a hot new series called Dead Heat Ranch.
The tables have turned on Grace Lambert. For a woman familiar with long days and hard work, she just recently discovered just how hot the sultry Texas nights can get. Finding time to spend with her two smoking hot cowboys, Grant and Lane, isn’t exactly easy, but she’s forging ahead with what has turned out to be the hottest relationship she has ever been in. The true test comes in standing up for what she wants.
Grant Kingsley has landed his feisty cowgirl, Gracie, and an equally sexy cowboy, Lane Miller, but everything outside of his romantic life has gone from routine to chaos in a matter of days. Unfortunately, he’s become rather acquainted with Murphy’s Law as he is inundated with a string of bad luck. His mother is missing, his father, a gambling addict, is worried about only one thing these days, and when Grant refuses to give in, all hell breaks loose on the ranch.
Lane Miller will be the first to admit that he falls in love easily. And he’s done so again, with both Gracie and Grant. Only this time around, he’s not giving up or giving in. Cowboys don’t know what it means to back down and Lane will ensure that the two most important people in his life get all of him, no matter what it takes.
Don't forget to read Boots Optional, the prequel to Betting on Grace, before you dive in!

5 STARS for both!!!
I love Nicole Edward’s ability to write incredibly HOT erotic books.
The novella ‘Boots Optional’ is the beginning of her new series ‘Dead Heat Ranch’ and such a great introduction. We meet the Lambert family that own the ranch and some of the workers, aka “Cowboys”!!!!
It did not disappoint me in any way. I thought the chemistry between Grace, Grant & Lane was off the charts….their sexual energy just leapt off the pages. The way Grace tried to stay away from them was funny…but in the end attraction and desire is what leads them all together, something that in Lane & Grants case, has been that way for 2 years…their competition to try & get a date with Grace, never happened…till now!!
I then started Betting on Grace, the whole first Chapter…OH MY!!!! I literally needed a fan to cool me down….it was getting “Hot in here”…lol.
This book was so enthralling, the story line, the characters all made this book so great to read. I loved Grace’s family, her father Jerry, her sisters, the cowboys, especially Lane & Grant. Then we had the chance to meet some of the guest’s on the Ranch!!
Grace’s sister Mercy was such a great character, she was brilliant and somewhat sneaky and I look forward to hearing more about her!!
I loved the fact that Gracie, Grant & Lane finally opened up to each other in many ways not just sexual. Grant, especially!! He is not used to being loved and for 2 people to care as much as they do to help him in a family matter, you had to really feel for him, I know I did. At one point in the story I shed some tears because the emotions everyone was feeling was so raw and I just couldn’t help it.
I especially loved when Gracie told her father what was happening with Grant & Lane…all 3 of them were all so worried how her father may react…but in the end….what matters most was the way they felt for each other.
I literally wanted to be there at the ranch, a part of everything….its how I felt while reading such an incredibly well written story!!!
Well done Nicole, yet another amazing story from your incredible talent as a writer.
Add them to your TBR list!!! Or you will be missing out!!!
