Author Lynnette Austin


Tight-fitting, well-worn jeans and a Stetson tipped low. Cowboy boots, dusty from riding the range and a day’s stubble shadowing a strong chin.

The question begs to be asked. Is there anything sexier than a cowboy? They love their mamas, say yes, ma’am, and make our hearts pound and our palms sweat. And I get to spend every single day surrounded by them, watching these big, strong cowboys fall in love!

I hope you’ll join in the fun as three special couples fall in love in the Maverick Junction series. Meet Cash and Annelise in Somebody Like You, the first in the series out December 4, 2012, from Grand Central Publishing, followed by Ty and Sophie’s story in Nearest Thing to Heaven, and Brawley and Maggie’s in Can't Stop Lovin' You.

I hope you’ll fall in love right along with them!

And remember, I’m still writing other great stories about life and love as Lynnette Hallberg. You can visit me at Happy reading! ...Lynnette


Cant Stop Lovin You

Can't Stop Lovin' You
By Lynnette Austin
A Maverick Junction Novel

Brawley Odell figured his life wouldn’t be worth one plug-nickel the second he stepped foot inside Maggie’s shop. Too damn bad. He hadn’t driven the thirty miles from Maverick Junction to back out now. He was goin’ in.

After all this time, he’d come home…and she was leaving.

He grasped the brass knob and shoulder-butted the oak door. It flew open, the bell overhead jangling. Maggie Sullivan, all that gorgeous red hair scooped into a jumbled mass, stood dead-center in the room. Dressed in a skirt and top the color of a forest at twilight, she held a fuzzy sweater up in front of her like a shield. Those amazing green eyes widened as he stormed in.

Nearest Thing To Heaven

Nearest Thing To Heaven
By Lynnette Austin
A Maverick Junction Novel

With the holiday season fast approaching. Sophie London finds herself back in Maverick Junction, Texas, for her cousin’s wedding to Cash Hardeman and runs headlong into Ty Rawlins, the widowed father of rambunctious triplets.

Sophie, owner of Stardust Productions, believes in fairies and magic. Long-horned cattle, wide-open spaces, and three-year-olds with fishing worms dangling from their poles are enough to make any city girl run all the way back to Illinois in her Jimmy Choos.

Ty, busy with the day-to-day duties as single daddy and owner of the Burnt Fork Ranch, has no time for romance. He’s had love and lost it. Yet he finds himself thinking of Sophie night and day. Can Ty convince both himself and Sophie that Maverick Junction is where she belongs, right beside him and his boys?
