Book 4 in the Hot in the Saddle series.
Single and loving it! That's Caleb, the only Russell man not yet hitched, and that's fine with him. Life's good--if a little predictable. Until a little lady drops out of the sky and into his kayak, nearly drowning him in the process.
But getting wet is the least of his problems. Seems Caleb's going to follow his brothers when it comes to fixing on kinda offbeat women, because Conn isn't like any woman he's ever known. But then he's never met a woman who isn't from this world. And he sure as shit hasn't ever met one who can put as much starch in his shorts and fire in his blood as Conn can with just a look.

Excerpt from Conn 'n Caleb by Ciana Stone
"Whoa, darlin', back up there," Chase interrupted. "Let's start this at the beginning. Like how you and Caleb met."
"That is an excellent idea," Conn agreed enthusiastically and began to recite the events that led her to being on the ranch.
She was just starting to tell about the morning after she read all Caleb's medical books when Caleb entered the room. "Conn!"
"What?" She turned at the sound of alarm in his voice.
"What're you doing?"
"Telling your family how we met and I came to be here."
"Conn, honey, I don't think--"
"It's okay," Chase said. "She knows all the Russell dark family secrets."
"You told her?" Caleb asked, moving to take a seat beside Conn.
Chase shook his head and jerked his thumb in Ana's direction. Ana just smiled and raised her hand like a kid in a classroom. Caleb looked around at everyone. "So you know everything."
"Well, except for what happened that morning after she read all your books from college," Ana said with a mischievous grin.
"Uh, I don't think you need to hear that part," Caleb replied.
Conn looked at him in surprise. "I don't understand. We are being truthful. Is there shame in two people engaging in sex and--"
"I'm starved," Caleb cut in and bounded to his feet. "What say we get some grub on?"
Ana and Chase both laughed, making Conn feel even more confused. Ana looked over and smiled at her. "Don't be offended. Caleb's been such a rake for so long he's scared you'll spill the beans and the truth will be out that a date with Caleb isn't really a night riding the wild bull."
"Ana!" Caleb bellowed, making Chase laugh even harder.
"Spill the beans?" Conn asked. "Riding the-- Are you referring to the size of Caleb's penis and his ability to sustain an erection for an extended period of time? If so then I can assure you his reputation is solidly intact because he is very well endowed and--"
"Conn!" Caleb yelled, causing Chase to nearly double over laughing and Ana to lay her head on the table and howl.
"What?" Conn shouted to be heard over all the noise.
"They don't need to know that," he insisted loudly.
"But Ana said...I thought you wanted everyone to know that you can sustain an erection for hours and that the size of--"
Her eyes flew open wide as his hand clamped over her mouth. "Honey, there are just some things you don't want to discuss with your family, okay? And the size of my...well, you know--that's just not a topic meant to be discussed with family. Okay?"
She nodded and he removed his hand. She looked at Chase and Ana who were still snickering and suddenly she understood. And understanding allowed her to see the humor in it. And also freed her to do a little teasing of her own.
"I promise not to tell any of your family that you're hung like a horse and sex with you is some world-class fuckin' and ain't that some fly shit. You have my word."
Ana and Chase lost it. She collapsed against him laughing and Chase howled and pounded the table with his fist. Caleb sputtered, turned red and looked at her in shock. "World-class fuckin'...ain't that some fly shit?"
"It was in a song on one of the films you have on DVD."
Caleb shook his head and turned away from all of them, busying himself with pulling things from the oven. Conn looked at Ana and winked and Ana gave her a big smile. "You know, Conn, personally I'm going to enjoy having you around. Welcome to the Circle R, sister."
Conn looked at the hand Ana extended across the table. She reached out to clasp it, but hesitated and looked at Chase. He smiled and nodded and when she clasped Ana's hand he placed his on top of theirs. "Welcome, Conn."
"Thank you," Conn replied gratefully. In that moment she felt closer to being a part of a family than she'd ever known and she couldn't help wishing that it would last.
