Gavin Mathis is ready to settle down. He's quit his job and come home to Shadow Maverick Ranch to do just that. Too bad his decision caused his beautiful former colleague to lose her job.
Lauren Delgado is a no-nonsense businesswoman. She's had a crush on Gavin for years, but has a strict "hands-off" policy with the men she works with. When her life takes an unexpected turn, there's nothing to stop her from accepting his invitation to Galveston Island, where the policy is definitely hands-on.

Looking for a short, steamy read to really heat up your summer? Then you don't want to pass up Parker Kincade's sizzling hot Galveston Island beach setting that's got sand, steam, and elements of office romance with a side of cowboy twang. And, did I mention awesome chemistry?
Lauren Delgado, a dedicated workaholic with no social life, never saw downsizing coming after she'd devoted the last twelve years of her life to her employer. And she'd never expected Gavin Mathis, her off limits co-worker crush, to offer the use of his Galveston Island beach house while she decided what to do with the rest of her life. Not planning to take advantage of Gavin's offer to make use of the house, Lauren somehow found herself in Texas that very night...and whirling around to find Gavin, the man she'd thought was headed straight back to London, in the flesh...ahh, I mean the buff!
Rancher's son Gavin Mathis never expected his decision to resign his job in London would cost Lauren Delgado her job in New York, and he just couldn't bring himself to tell her before he said goodbye. As co-workers, Lauren had been like yin to his yang, but he'd kept his attraction to her confined to innocent flirtations. And, knowing her as he did, Gavin certainly never thought Lauren would actually make use of the key he provided to his beach house. Now, with her standing half-way into a bikini in his living room, it's not the time to enlighten her that he never expected her presence, he has a really troubled conscience, and he's home to stay in Texas. Their mutual state of undress and underlying attraction simply makes it too hot to do anything but live out a few fantasies and see what the future holds.
In WHITE COLLAR COWBOY, Parker Kincade starts the Shadow Maverick Ranch series out with a bang! Gavin and Lauren are two well-fleshed and relatable characters that finally act on their hidden attraction and within the scope of a handsomely plotted romance that truly rocks the shorter novella format. Ms. Parker's writing and dialogue is so very finely tuned that there's not a superfluous word or action between this hero and heroine, and my, do those words and actions leave you on the edge of your seat!
With a seeming eye towards writing for those who aren't adverse to a bit of gritty language and smoking hot--but not overly graphic--love scenes, Parker Kincade's branch of chemistry will have the mercury rising in your thermometer and sexy romance aficionados ready to embrace another Mathis man in Borrowed Cowboy, the next book in the Shadow Maverick Ranch series.
