Kody is a four time Canadian all around rodeo champ. The previous season, his last ride snatched a fifth title from his grasp and could have been career ending. Kody fights back from his injury to compete again, however he often struggles with the lingering after effects of the event. Kody exemplifies the perfect cowboy, most of the time, but like everyone he makes mistakes. He is, after all, a man and beautiful women are found following the rodeo circuit or competing. He does his best to rectify a bad situation which could cost him his best friend carefully and honestly. He is a humble winner, a tough competitor and a man who loves his family. I like his character, he is smart, hard working, funny, and sexy as hell.
Jaimie McDonald is a talented sportscaster who suddenly shows up on the rodeo circuit. I like Jaimie’s character, she is hard working and doesn’t let the men in her industry or the cowboys push her around. The moment they meet the chemistry ignites and the chase begins. Kody knows that he is attracted to the journalist. She fears that her attraction could cost her her job and her broadcasting future. The lure of the Calgary Stampede brings them together but the relationship is not without its problems. While the couple is creative in their endeavors to remain undetected, they are equally creative in the bedroom or in the great outdoors. Kody is having the a terrific season professionally but cannot openly truly share it with the woman he wants. The story is well paced and the banter between all the characters is realistic and sexy. I would love to read another cowboy romance by Ms. Addison.
Totally loved this story! Cody was a respectable cowboy, but couldn’t resist his best friend’s kid sister, Mia. However Cody soon realized he was thinking with the wrong body part. He continued to have good rides and started to notice the TV reporter who was covering the rodeo. Jaimie is a rising star in the broadcasting world, but she has a no fraternizing clause in her contract and she doesn’t want to get fired for some cowboy. However, as she gets to k ow Kody that determination gets harder and harder until one night when she had a bit too much to drink and runs into Kody who wants to get her home safely. In the end she doesn’t want him to leave and that night changes everything between them. The closer they get the more difficult it is keep their secret and when Kody gets her to come to the ranch to get away and to get outside hotel rooms, it’s great until Mia comes over and she not only gets jealous, she is pissed. Does this mean the end for Kody and Jaimie? Will Jaimie lose her job?
I enjoyed the characters in this story. Kody seemed like a really good guy, minus his sleeping with Mia. I am curious as to what happened with Wade and will there be a spin off with this bad boy? Jaimie was very sweet and it is great for a female to be successful in the world of sports broadcasting. Let me tell you that Jaimie and Kody were HOT HOT HOT! Between the sheets! Wowzers and very steamy!
Great read In an evening
1. How much of you do you pour into your characters, as far as personality is concerned?
It isn’t intentional, but I find that I introduce a lot of my own personality traits, and interests into my characters. I tend to write female characters that are strong, ambitious, driven, creative, and have a great sense of humour. I try to draw a subtle correlation between these traits and the success my characters enjoy. Like they say, you write what you know.
Austin Campbell is one of my favourite characters. When I created her, I was unpublished, so writing her as a Canadian author of romance novels was pure fiction. Now, Austin is a little bit of art imitating life. Don’t worry, there is still plenty of fiction in Austin’s character. She’s had adventures and made decision that I would never have made.

Cara was born and raised in Southern Ontario. She has utilized her drive, tenacity, ambition and out-of-the-box thinking to ascend the Canadian corporate ladder and shatter the proverbial glass ceiling. As the CEO of a government firm, Cara prefers to be out in the trenches, working to provide solutions rather than sitting behind a desk. While she loves to succeed in her work, she issued an impromptu challenge to herself that led her to sit down one day and write a piece of fiction that was worthy of publication.
Being an avid daydreamer since childhood, she transferred her own wit and humor to the narrative and dialogue of the characters that resided in her imagination. The words poured onto the page and within…
