Stacy Dawn had me laughing and completely drawn into Cheatin' Hearts at the first page. Quite a feat when you consider the story is told in eleven pages. If you are looking for a light, quick romance, Cheatin' Hearts fits the bill. This is my first exposure to Stacy Dawn's writing, but if this in indicative of the entertainment to be had from her work; I will definitely be looking for more.

Cheatin' Hearts is a feel-good, 1st person read that induced many smiles. A great stocking filler for those who love to read romance.

I love it! I laughed out loud at the husband's comments. It's so real and funny!

Stacy Dawn's writing can only be described as snappy and fun. Cheatin' Hearts takes the theme of a missing stetson and carries it as far as it can possibly go. Any reader will come away from this tale with a smile on her face. Great job, Stacy, thanks for giving us a cowboy we'd all like to take two-steppin'.

I bought (and read) both Reindeer Games and Cheatin Hearts today!!
OMG, they're both GREAT!!!
I particularly loved Cheatin Hearts!!! The tension is through the roof in that one even though it's only a few pages!!

"O-o-okay, you weren't wearing that when you went to get the drinks."

Setting down the chilled bottles on the Dusty Cowboy's worn tabletop, I gave my hips free reign to the little sways they insisted on doing to the George Strait classic crooning from the popular honky-tonk's jukebox. "It was the craziest thing. I had to cut through a corner of the dance floor on my way back and next thing I knew, I was half blinded by this thing." Using the lip of my long-neck, I tipped up the front of the newly acquired black Stetson.

My brother-in-law Ray's thin hand reached out to grab up the other two bottles. "You mean someone just plunked it on your head?" He pushed the rounded green one in front of his wife who instantly went into gush mode.

"Like an invitation! Oh Cara, I bet he's out there right now just waiting for you to find him."

"What? Like a reversed Cinderella's slipper or something?" Snorting, I swept down a quick swallow then used the burnished bottle to point at my sister Michelle's rounding belly. "If that's a girl in there, I hope you don't fill her head with all this frilly nonsense."

Pink lips twisted along with the lid off her sparkling water. "You used to believe in it."

"Yeah, well. We all have to grow up sometime."
