Reckless in Texas

Book 1, Texas Rodeo

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


"A fun, wild ride!" —B.J. DANIELS, New York Times Bestselling Author 

Rough and tumble, cocky and charming,
Bullfighter Joe Cassidy is one of the best athletes in the business…
And he's way out of Violet's league.

Violet Jacobs is fearless. At least, that's what the men she snatches from under the hooves of bucking horses think. Outside the ring, she's got plenty of worries rattling her bones: her young son, her mess of a love life, and lately, her family's struggling business. When she takes matters into her own hands and hires on a hotshot bullfighter, she expects to start a ruckus. 

She never expected stubborn, showboating, sweet-at-the-core Joe Cassidy. 

Joe came to Texas to escape a life spiraling out of control. He never planned on sticking around, and he certainly never expected to call this dry and dusty backwater home. But Violet is everything he never knew he was missing, and the deeper he's pulled into her beautiful mess of a family, the more he realizes this fierce, fiery woman may be offering him the one thing he never could find on his own.

From Publishers Weekly

Jun 13, 2016 – Dell's first Texas Rodeo contemporary takes the reader on a journey into the rough-and-tumble world of bull riding. Violet Jacobs has hired a substitute bullfighter to help with her family's Texas rodeo, in which she provides backup from horseback if the bull-riding cowboy can't get out of the way of the bull. She's surprised when hunky Joe Cassidy shows up at her ranch especially since he's not the man that she hired. Over time they grow closer, but Violet knows that Joe will be returning to Oregon after his stint with the rodeo, and she's still adjusting to life as a single mom after a one-night stand resulted in the conception of her young son; a relationship is not in the cards. But she can't keep her eyes off him. Dell's insight into the world of bull riding is illuminating, and her highly dimensional characters make her a standout in western romance.

Kari Lynn Dell brings you to Texas in a wonderful story about family, friends and dreams. In the world of rodeo a woman has to work harder than a man and Violet Jacobs shows us what she is made. A fabulous read.

Reckless in Texas

This was the third book I’ve read in this series. I really found it hard to put down, especially when I got to about the last ⅓ of the book.
I totally enjoyed it!
