Winning the bet should be easy. Keeping their hands off each other is a lot harder…
After losing everything, socialite Lola St. James moves to Texas to convert her only possession, Red Oak Ranch, into a luxury bed and breakfast. After all it can't be that hard to trade in a pair of stilettos for cowboy boots.
Jack Canyon, her estranged husband and co-owner of the ranch, vows to stop her from turning his home into Barbie's country hotel. He knows her promises are meaningless, and he needs the land’s mineral rights to expand his business. He bets everything she won’t last a week as a cowgirl. She agrees—if he’ll turn over his half of the land. No problem.
Except now they’re forced to live together. New flames reignite until Lola and Jack can’t deny the red hot sexual tension between them. But when old betrayals resurrect, Lola must choose between running away or staying in Jack’s arms…

5 out of 5 stars
The Cowboy's Socialite was another A+ read by Carmen Falcone and I'm starting to think that this author is incapable of writing a book that I will not enjoy. I loved this book so much. To the point that it is my favorite book of Carmen's to date. Everything about this book worked for me. I already love the reuniting husband and wife trope and this book just made me love it so much more. It was so well done. And then we must take into account the fact that this book is pairing up a cowboy with a socialite. Stories featuring opposites attract situations like that are always so much fun and have that certain type of drama that is entertaining instead of frustrating and annoying, so it really worked for me. Add on all the drama caused by the bet and the desperation of both characters when it came to them owning the ranch and the sweet romance that developed between these two despite everything made this story an extremely satisfying romance. I, of course, highly recommend this book!
