Love, Stock, & Barrel - Release Day!!!

We've all heard of shotgun weddings, but how about a shotgun wedding with the gun pointed at the woman? Well, I took that what-if and turned it into a novel. A novel that releases today! Yeehaw!

Howdy y'all! Crystal Barnes here and I'm super excited to announce Love, Stock, & Barrel is now available! :D

A bit about Love, Stock, & Barrel:
Hiding from a rat of a fiancĂ©, Dinah Lexington makes tracks for Texas and who she hopes is her late mother’s relative. She’s seeking answers but finds more than she bargains for when she gets caught in a shotgun wedding—with the rifle pointed at her.
Russell Cahill can’t believe his father is demanding he marry the feisty redhead. The sharpshooting female would only add to his troubles, but how does one argue with a gun and an attraction he's fought to ignore?

Sparks fly. Secrets surface. Loss threatens.

Will a dream for love shatter forever, or will the pair find a marriage worth lock, stock, and barrel?

Here's what folks are saying...

"Another great story from a talented historical romance author! I love how both books in this series have had good strong female leads, and always interesting marriage situations. Makes for fun reading! Especially with the sassy western twang that comes through on each page. A great read!" ~ Misty M Beller, author of The Lady and the Mountain Call

"I was given a advance copy of this book to read in exchange for a review. I was so blessed to have read it. There is surprises, romance, and so much more. I did not want the book to end, got so attached to the characters. This is 2nd in the series but can be read as a stand alone book but why not read the whole series. Dinah goes to Crystal Falls, Tx since [she] had information about it [in] her mother's diary. Her mother had passed away and her father was trying to force her to marry. She is welcomed into town and has quite a adventure. This is a very good western/historical book." ~ Janice Sisemore, reader
