I'm a country gal at heart and am pretty keen on cowboy and home-grown heroes. Happily-ever-after is something I believe in with my whole heart. Love may be a bumpy road and there ares bound to be some perils along the way but in the end love should win. I try to take that attitude into my writing and think that love, hope and laughter are some of the best medicine there is. Along with books. 

I love to hear from readers and the most important thing I can say is - "thank you. To every reader who has spent his or her hard-earned reading dollars on a Ciana Stone book, thank you from the bottom of my heart."

"A page turner! I couldn't put it down. Ciana has a way of weaving a tale that leaves you spellbound. Sweet, Funny, and a Splash of Danger! Definitely a story you can get lost in." Candid Book Reviews

A man hiding from his past and a woman running from hers.

Two people from different worlds who know one another only from what they have shared with one another in Facebook messages. They've never heard the other's voice, or seen a photo.

Analise Becke writes romance with western heroes, men she has dreamed up by combining the looks of her favorite western actor with the qualities she discovers in her online chats with the Texas rancher, Riley Morgan. She's cooked up more than a few fantasies about Riley over the last year, but knows them for what they are -- fantasies of a lonely woman whose marriage is falling apart.

Riley looks forward to the online chats more than he is willing to admit but has never considered asking what she looks like. She's just an online friend. Yeah, they have a connection, but certainly not enough to even consider that a face-to-face meeting will spark anything other than a solidification of their friendship.

Riley Morgan and Analise Becke are in for a big surprise - actually a series of surprises. Their lives are about to be turned upside down as passion and danger come to Cotton Creek, Texas.

And they say nothing ever happens in Cotton Creek.

Finding Justice (Honky Tonk Angels Book 2)
$2.49

Justice Weathers has his hands full with the ranch and his twin boys. A widower whose love life is pretty much non-existent and maybe that's for a reason. His family doesn't seem to have much luck with happily-ever-after. Sex? That's something an ex-rodeo bad boy can handle. Love 'em and leave'em.

He's not looking for love. Heck he runs from it.

He might have a bit of running to do. Someone's on her way to Cotton Creek and when she gets there she's gonna stir up a whole lot of feelings he's spent the last three years trying to forget.

Yeah, that bit about nothing ever happening in Cotton Creek? So wrong.

Baby I'm In (Honky Tonk Angels Book 3)
$2.49

Love was the last thing on Kyle Stader's mind. He'd found and lost that once and he wasn't about to ever let himself feel that kind of hurt again. He was content if not happy, his quiet bad boy alpha reputation provided him a steady supply of willing bed partners. He could live without love and the pain it caused.

So, when Liz Redgate shows up in Cotton Creek, he might find himself interested, but it darn sure isn't going to go anywhere except maybe the bedroom.

Liz is an enigma. A woman who can handle a thoroughbred race horse better than half a dozen experienced jockeys, and one who is keeping secrets. Like why that thoroughbred horse won't run for anyone but her. Those secrets may make her more appealing but also make her dangerous.

Unfortunately, Kyle's no novice to danger, and is a sucker for a mystery. Things are about to get interesting again in Cotton Creek.

Ask Me to Stay (Honky Tonk Angels Book 4)
$2.49

His family and friends referred to him as a "rounder" because when it came to the ladies, Jayce (rhymes with Chase) Weathers, definitely gets around. He's the hot bad boy who knows how to give a woman a night of wild pleasure, some laughs and leaves them wanting more and chasing after him.

Not that they're likely to catch him. Jayce isn't opposed to settling down, he just hasn't met the right woman -- if she even exists. He's starting to wonder.

And then Billy Sweet shows up at the Honky Tonk Angels bar where Jayce is finishing the remodel on the top floor, and he has with him a woman and her two year old daughter. Callie and Lily Williams. Callie brings out something in Jayce. Something besides passion and lust. He wants to be her hero.

When Callie's car ran out of gas just outside of Cotton Creek, she never expected to be rescued. Or to be offered a job and a place for her and Lily to stay. And she sure didn't except to meet a man that made her dream of things she couldn't have - love everylasting, a family and a home. But Jayce Weathers makes her dream of those thigns and a whole lot more.

They might both be dreaming the same thing. The problem is, there's someone who doesn't want that dream to come true for Callie, someone who just might be willing to do anything to make sure her dreams don't come true.

Yep, things are heating up again in Cotton Creek.

"When I open one of this author's novels I know I will be in real deep with some hot serious lovin with many a twist when least expected. This one is no exception with it being another in this series that I have come to adore causing me to race to read the next one as they become available."
~ Denise Van Plew for Candid Book Reviews

Things have gotten downright smoldering in Cotton Creek. The oil boom has the town bursting at the seams, and has Cody and Hannah run ragged with the bar being packed every night. Leave it to their mama to come up with a solution.

Stella talks to her sister, who, in turn, manipulates her son, Cade to go to Cotton Creek and helphis cousins out. After all, he has nothing really on his plate. He just sold a casino in Atlanta City and has no idea what he wants to do next.

Cade isn't keen on the idea, but his mother traps him with the old "family helps family" thing so to Cotton Creek he goes. What were the odds that a month after he arrives, Roxie Ellis' 1957 T-bird would break down just outside of Cotton Creek and she'd be needing a job to make enough to affect repairs?

Gambler's luck? Maybe. Whatever the case, sparks fly at first glance and before you can call red on a roulette wheel, Cade and Roxie are neck deep in what is surely the most erotic bet of their lives.

The problem is, the bet becomes a whole lot more serious than either of them plan and soon Cade is Playing for Keeps.

The book we've been waiting for and OMG was the wait worth it! - Candid Book Reviews

Just when you thought things were starting to simmer down in Cotton Creek, something new crops up. And this time the attention is on the Sweet gals. Hannah may have found her dream guy in Cooper Quinlan, and she's damned determine to plan the perfect wedding -- no matter who she drives crazy. Everything would be perfect if she could just ignore the little bursts of excitement she gets every time she sees Bryson Weathers.

Cody isn't being much help. She doesn't give a hoot in hell about fancy dresses and weddings. What she does care about is the clandestine relationship she has with Jaxon Riggs. He's made no bones about the fact that he isn't looking for forever. She is, but if it's not in the cards then so be it. Riggs trips her switch and she's not about to pass up one moment with him, nor is she about to let anything prevent her from being with him.

That resolve was holding pretty firm until an old friend, Belinda, shows up with a three year old daughter, Bernice, in tow. Belinda is sick. If she doesn't get a kidney transplant she'll die. And she wants Cody to commit to being Bernice's godmother, to raise her if Belinda dies.

It's a tall order, but Cody falls in love with the little girl and is ready to say yes. Then all hell breaks loose when Belinda says that Bernice's father is right there in Cotton Creek. If it's true, it's going to cause a whole lot of trouble.

Come share the joys and woes, the danger and the fun as we prove once more that the old saying "nothing ever happens in Cotton Creek" needs to be changed to "Looking for Trouble? You've come to the right place."
