Product Description

Contemporary Western Romance Novel ... from USA Today Bestselling Author Lisa Mondello

What's a girl to do all alone with a rodeo cowboy for 1 month in the Wyoming wilderness?

Melanie Summers has something to prove! Being a zoologist is her dream and the only thing standing in the way of her going on an African expedition is her father and his fear.

So she strikes a deal. She has to spend a full month in the Wyoming wilderness and show her father she can handle being in a remote area while managing her Type 1 diabetes before he'll agree to fund the expedition to Africa and allow her to go. But her daddy isn't the only one convinced she'll fail...


But she's not about to let any man underestimate what she can do. Especially not the sexy rodeo cowboy she's hired to help get her through the month in the wilderness.

Yes, he knows what he's doing. But so does she! Yes, he's ruggedly handsome...well, he can't help that, can he? But no sexy cowboy is going to keep her down!

Stoney Buxton needs to raise cash fast to save the family ranch after a barn fire injured his father and left the family finances in ruin. Re-entering the rodeo circuit seems like the best way to get the money he needs. That is until Melanie Summers shows up at his ranch flashing easy money. To everyone else, Melanie's offer seems like the answer to all his prayers. But one look at her long legs and pouting lips and Stoney knows this high society gal is going to be nothing but trouble...for his cowboy heart.

Excerpt:

His jaw tightened. Yes, there was something definitely wrong here. And money had nothing to do with it. It had everything to do with this beauty standing in front of him, who was clueless about what she was getting her pretty little hide into. "No," he replied tersely.

"Mr. Buxton, I need your help."

"Tourist season is in full swing. I'm sure you'll have no trouble finding someone else."

He turned his back to her and began walking along the fence toward the barn, almost forgetting... Abruptly, he glanced up and saw the charred remains of the barn. The place where all his troubles had started just one year ago. It hadn't taken but a second for him to hear her boots digging into the dusty gravel behind him, jarring him from his thoughts.

"Then I'll do it myself," she said to his back.

His whole body stiffened. He angled back to read her face, to see if she was just being a spoiled rotten rich kid, trying to get her way, or if she was actually serious. Seeing her head held high and her arms crossed in front of her, he realized she was dead serious.

And dead she'd be if she stepped one boot into those mountains alone.

"You'll do no such thing."

Frustration flaring, he lifted his dusty hat and forced his fingers through the thick crop of black hair before returning the hat to his head.

"You just don't get it, do you? You're not asking me to take you on a theme park ride where you'll get to see the wonders of the world at a nice safe distance. This is God's country. The creatures that live up there don't know civilization, and you are no better than them. You could--probably will--get killed if you go out there alone." His lips twitched, taking a good long appraising look at the woman in front of him. "You might even chip a nail on that pretty hand of yours."

NOTHING BUT TROUBLE is an excellent story about a young woman and Zoologist who wants to go on an African expedition to see animals in the natural habitat. Her father will pay for the trip provided she can pass his test: to survive one month in the wilderness. Melanie hires rancher/rodeo hero Stoney Buxton to be her guide. They are truly both opposite people coming from different walks of life; his being rugged and outgoing, hers being sheltered and rich. They encounter various problems in the wilderness especially when Melanie loses her insulin (she's a type 1 diabetic). This book is packed with suspense and romance...and lots of sex. Well written and I enjoyed it.

I really enjoyed the chemistry between Stoney & Melanie. Even though they come from different backgrounds, there are lessons they both learned that have nothing to do with that, but have everything to do with what makes us all equal. My only 'complaint' with this book, is that I wish it wouldn't have ended when it did!

HASH(0x9f11ad14) out of 5 stars Too hard to get through Feb. 7 2012
By Laura - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The main female character in the story, Melanie, is not even a likable character. She constantly says how responsible she is, but instead she's irresponsible. She and the lead male character, Stoney, spend 4 days together barely talking, and then all of a sudden they're in love! She wants to go to Africa to study animals so she has to prove to her father that she can handle her diabetes, otherwise her father will cut funding for the trip. She's an adult, but she doesn't act like one. She takes off to prove she can stay a month in the wilderness without problems. Of course, she can't. Then she has to "face her father." Why doesn't she grow up and go out on her own? Right after meeting Stoney she tells him what he should do with his ranch! And she keeps pushing him to do what she thinks he should do even though it's not her place. Plus, apparently he was too dumb to think of that solution.

The misspellings, wrong words used, the wrong tense of a word and all the errors were very distracting and pulled me right out of the story each time I came to one. Some of the errors were: peace instead of piece, bottle lip instead of bottom lip, use to-the proper phrase is used to, weary instead of leery or wary, sentences like "When you let go of the strap go, your heel a nudge into your mounts ribs and...you're riding" and "The air around them broke into giddy excitement..". There were an enormous amount of errors like this-way too many.

The pat rescue and job offer were too much. The bits thrown in about using glycerin soap because it was gentle and not putting the tent on the actual grass were ridiculous. It just seemed thrown in the story and it served no purpose.

I can't recommend this because I felt like there were errors on about every other page. It made it too hard to get through. I did finish the book and I was so glad when I finally reached the end and could be done. This needs a major rewrite.

HASH(0x9f008dc8) out of 5 stars Loved the story, hated the editing Jan. 3 2014

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I really did enjoy the story of Melanie (the rich girl) and Stoney (the struggling rancher). Also the handling of someone with diabetes, showing that yes they can have a life, as long as they manage their condition carefully. Great story, but terribly let down by the editing.
Would still recommend though.

HASH(0x9eef1d50) out of 5 stars The Cowboy & the Debutante Sept. 27 2011
By Jutzie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Stoney Buxton had been a bull rider in the rodeo until a year ago. Their barn burned down and a beam caught his dad and took away his ability to walk, so Stoney came home to the ranch, where he belonged. They were struggling because of extra land they bought and the medical bills. So when Melanie Summers showed up offering to pay him to be her guide in the mountains, his folks thought it was a good idea. He did not. He was thinking hitting a few of the big rodeo's would help. This fancy city girl with her beauty looked like nothing but trouble to Stoney.

Melanie Summers had an agenda. She was a zoologist and wanted to go to Kenya to observe the animals in their natural habitat. Then she found out her dad was funding the project and would pull his money if she went. Thus the deal; if she could survive one month in the Wyoming wild he would let her go. Of course she new he would pay off anyone who would take her, so they wouldn't. But she found Stoney and new he could not be bought, it seemed not even by her. She would not let him know her secret though, she was diabetic and her parents pampered her and kept her as caged as the wild animals at the zoo. Melanie wanted her freedom more than anything and this was her only chance and Stoney was the person to help her.

Stoney does give in and struggles every time he looks at Melanie. He wants to hold her and kiss her and.... he knows a city gal like her would never be happy with him, a rancher trying to make ends meet. When Melanie loses her pack with her insulin and tells Stoney, they must race to save her life, and Stoney sees how much he don't want to lose this woman. When he starts trying to protect, she sees him acting in the same way as her parents, the very thing she was trying to escape. Can Stoney love Melanie enough to let go and allow her the freedom she needs or is their love going to stay locked up?
