Oklahoma City, Oklahoma – Present Day

Jolie Davis's and Cord Barron's families are in the midst of a long time feud, but it didn't stop Jolie and Cord from having a fling with each other, not once, but twice over the years. Jolie has stayed away from Oklahoma City for a few years, but she's back and knew it would be only a matter of time before she ran into Cord. But she didn't think it would be at the hospital where she works when he's brought in after being severely injured in an accident, or that he'd soon spot her with her son, CJ—whose father happens to be Cord. Stunned to learn he is a father but angry that Jolie never told him, he wants to get to know CJ, but she is scared to let him because his family's power might be used to push for custody.

Cord never forgot Jolie, the woman he loved but couldn't have because of their family feud. His father is a mean old bastard and threatened to not only disown him but to make it so he could never work in the business Cord loves, so he gave her up. But learning he has a son has them back together, even if it is for CJ's sake. Jolie is independent and not afraid to battle Cord or anyone who dares to harm CJ. Cord hoped to keep the secret of his son from his father for a little while until he figures out how things are going to work out between him and Jolie, but the old man finds out, and orders Cord to claim his son like a piece of land. But will Cord staking his claim drive away the woman he loves?

It's secret baby time in THE COWGIRL'S LITTLE SECRET, the latest tale in the Red Dirt Royalty series by Silver James.  Cord's family, headed by his father, is like royalty in Oklahoma City, and Jolie's father is a rival, so one can understand the delicate family dynamics when the two fall for each other. Their initial affair was sizzling hot, and while things might have temporarily cooled, it blazes once more in THE COWGIRL'S LITTLE SECRET. Unlike Romeo and Juliet, let's hope things do not end badly…

At the center of the battle between the Davis and Barron family feud is little CJ. He could end the feud…and maybe his parents will finally find true love and happiness with each other. Of course, this will only happen if Cord and Jolie stop locking horns—or lips—long enough to figure out how to make it all work out. But looming on the horizon is Cord's daddy…he's wily enough to make life miserable for Jolie in order to get what he wants, never mind that Cord and Jolie are CJ's parents.

THE COWGIRL'S LITTLE SECRET is a fun and quirky tale that has a bit of a twang in the snappy dialogue between Cord, Jolie, and other characters. If you love unique and intriguing characters with a spicy spin, then look no further than THE COWGIRL'S LITTLE SECRET for your next reading adventure.
