He Shouldn't Want Her...
Blake Sinclaire knows he shouldn't want Maddie Hansen - she's the daughter of his family's enemy, and not to be trusted. It doesn't matter she's got a mind that won't quit, curves for days, and a sassy sweet mouth that drives Blake to distraction. Her father stole his family's land, and Blake will do anything - anything to get it back. 

But one scorching kiss changes everything... 
Super-scientist Maddie Hansen vowed never to return to Prairie and the feud that's hounded her family for generations. When she discovers the sexy cowboy who saved her father's life is none other than Blake Sinclaire, she's forced to reconsider everything she thought about her family's enemy- especially when his kisses keep her awake at night. But Maddie's determined to hold Blake at bay, because everyone knows cowboys have nothing in common with scientists. Except when it comes to matters of the heart.

Blake's plan to reclaim his land goes haywire when white-hot kisses turn into something more, but dark secrets stand between Blake and a shot at love. When they come to light, will he lose everything he holds dear, including Maddie?  

A standalone, modern-day Hatfields & McCoys filled with family feuds, fake engagements, explosive secrets, memorable side-characters, and a Happily Ever After that might just make you swoon.

    This is the second book that I read by this author. This is my first book in this series and I loved it. Even though Blake’s mixed up ideas about loyalty and protection was wrong his heart was in the right place. I enjoyed everything about this book and I’m excited to read the next book in the series which is Prairie Passion, Brodie and Jamey’s story. I have a feeling that it’s going to be a wild ride Yea. Until next time y’all happy reading.

    I love your writing style Your words make your readers "feel" every emotion. "I wish you hadn't used the Lords name in vain when your text could emit the same emotions without it". You are such an emotional writer and your characters embody unique personalities. Once I started, I couldn't put it down. Thank you, I can't wait for your next book!!

    Prairie Heat by Tessa Layne is book number one in the Cowboys of the Flint Hills series. This is cowboy Blake Sinclaire and scientist Maddie Hansen's story. I loved this book from the start. This a great start for this series. I can't believe this is the writer's first book. Wow, the secrets and the steamy romance kept me on the edge of my seat. Once I started this book I couldn't put it down until I finished it. I fell in love with Blake and Maddie. This is an extremely fun, steamy, and sensual romance with so many secrets. The supporting characters were great too. I can't wait for the next book in this series. FYI, includes mature content.
