You may already know Kristen Proby from one of the USA Today bestselling novels in her “With Me in Seattle” e-original series. Pocket Books snapped up a brand-new contemporary romance series from her, which debuts with LOVING CARA, first in the “Love Under the Big Sky” series. If you like your men alpha, your women fiery, and your spaces wide-open, then come to Cunningham Falls, Montana for an incredibly spicy, sexy romance with amazing heart (and abs).

Loving Cara

You can buy LOVING CARA today in either e-book or mass market formats (see below), and you can check out a sample of the book here. But for an added bonus, in this post we’re giving you a (delicious) taste of the second Love Under the Big Sky book, SEDUCING LAUREN, coming from Pocket Books this summer. Meet Lauren, a local girl with a dark past who’s learning to come out of her shell…with the help of Ty, a country lawyer with a passion for helping the underdog. In the snippet below, the two are just beginning to feel their way toward love–with an emphasis on feel! 


Seducing Lauren


“Do you have any tats?” Ty asks.


His eyes widen in surprise and then rake over me from head to toe.


I grin, enjoying this flirtatious banter. “Here and there.”

“I have ways of making people talk, you know.”

“Bright lights and rubber hoses?” I ask with a raised brow. He tosses his head back and laughs, an all-out belly laugh.

“I’m not a cop,” he smirks.

“You might get to see them,” I respond. “Someday.”

He closes the gap between us and kisses me gently on the forehead, not touching me anywhere else.

“I hope someday comes sooner rather than later,” he whispers before pulling back and smiling softly down at me. “I would hug you, but I’m dirty.”

I wave him off, although I don’t mind so much that he’s a bit dirty and sweaty. “What were you doing?” I ask, gesturing to the car.

“Changing the oil.”

“There are places you can go,” I inform him with a perfectly straight face, “where you pull into this big garage, and then you leave your car and go into this small room with five-year-old magazines and stale coffee, and the people there will change your oil for you.”

“Or, smart ass,” he replies, “I can do it myself in my own driveway.”

“Suit yourself.” I shrug.


We hope you love Kristen’s new series as much as we do–see you under the Big Sky!
