Carolyn Brown is an award winning American author who has published more than 60 books which includes historical and western romance novels. The USA Today and New York Times best selling author was born in Texas and raised in Southern Oklahoma. Thirteen of her books have been translated into foreign languages and fourteen have been published in large print.

Most of her books are on historical romance and contemporary romance. She has also written historical series, contemporary single titles and contemporary series. Some of her famous literary series includes Spikes and Spurs, Cowboys and brides, Honky Tonk and Lucky Penny Ranch. She has won the National Reader’ s Choice award for two times, the Diamond award from Mont lake for selling one million books and the Bookseller’ s best award.

Her novel Love Drunk cowboy was New York Times and USA today bestseller. Moreover the novel The Ladies’ Room was a RITA Finalist. She has been married almost half a century to the retired English teacher, Charles.

They have three children enough grand children to make them busy and young. She credits her family writing ideas and humor which she implements throughout her novels. She is popular among the readers for her trademark sense of humor which is present in all of her novels.

She currently writes both cowboy romance and women’ s fiction. LOVE DRUNK COWBOY: Love Drunk Cowboy is an award winning novel published on May 2011. It was the New York Times and USA Today bestseller. It is the first book of Spike and Spurs series.

The novel is centered on a high powered career woman, Austin Lanier saddled with her inherited watermelon farm. She is determined to sell the farm, when her new neighbor Rye O’ Donnell shows up. The story begins with the demise of Austin’s grandmother.

She left all her possessions to Austin including the water melon farm, with specifications on how to dispose of her body. She got surprised when Rye, the next door neighbor whom she imagined to be elderly turned out to be fairly hot and young.

Their relationship thwarts her efforts to sell the farm. Austin has clearly worked hard to be successful in her chosen career. Her mother and two aunts whom she sees as role models are married to their profession. While spending time at her grandmother’ s farm, she unfolded another path before her which requires lots of guts. Rye on the other hand has a well mapped out life plan.

He is handsome and attractive farmer who instantly falls for Austin despite the concerns of his sister. Their relationship was sweet rather than sultry and they spent a good time getting to understand each other over the phone. Austin’ s original plans to sell the farm faded away as running of farm and the business of raising the watermelons got under her skin.

She had taken two weeks vacation from her original job to look after the farm. But as the vacation neared to an end, she was accustomed with the everyday running of the farm. She became more loathe to leave it. The story depicts a mother who is determined to get back her daughter to continue with her career, a sister who doubts the city girl over her relationship with her brother, and a granny who guides Austin’ s life from greater beyond.

In this book, Brown brings a delightful romance through a heroine who is willing to make her own decisions. Still, the hero’ s way of manipulating her makes the novel more charming. Switching back and forth from one perspective can be a bit confusing, but it keeps the reader on their toes.

One Hot Cowboy Wedding: One Hot Cowboy Wedding is one of the most popular books by Carolyn Brown. It is the fourth book of Spikes and Spurs series which was published in April 2012. The story begins with the meeting of cafe owner Jasmine King and the rancher Ace Riley.

Since the meeting, Jasmine has played several roles in rancher’s life. Best friend, confidante and the source of the most therapeutic hamburgers he has eaten ever. Neither of them expected to get married, let alone to each other. When Ace’ s grandfather passed away, he inherited his ranch. But he came late to realize the stipulation in the will.

He was to be married within two years of his grandfather’ s demise or else the property would be forfeited. The deadline of two years shortened to two weeks as he acknowledged this. He shares his bad news with Jasmine and she offers to help him by arranging a temporary marriage.

They makes a quick trip to Vegas and get married. They keep the marriage as secret for the required year and later arrange for a friendly divorce. Jasmine feels happy for her help and Ace is beyond grateful to her.

Their happy reunion as friends came to an end when a contest boot- kicks from low key to national news. Jasmine’ s mother feels cheated after hearing the news and forced Jasmine to move with Ace. Everyone eagerly waited for them to start a family.

This put both of them in dilemma and now they are each secretly worrying. Marriage of convenience and friends to lovers are two popular themes exhibited in this novel. Carolyn Brown blends them both to create a charming experience in the story. The author complicates the story with Ace’ s determination to hang onto his heart and Jasmine’ s hesitancy to stand up to her mother.

Despite the external forces, they manage to stay as best friends. Ace’ s thoughts are uncensored and male. New readers to Brown’ s Spikes and Spurs series may find the characters a little bit overwhelming. The community of Ring gold and the newlywed’ s family and friends provide a backdrop of conflict, caring and fun.

The villain is not interesting as other characters, but is responsible for pushing Jasmine and Ace closer together. One Hot Cowboy wedding is a best example of Brown’ s Texas style story telling with her unique elements of humor.

    I just finished “A Cowboy Christmas Miracle” and at the end of the book it has an expert from “Luck of the Draw”??? I can’t find that whole book anywhere by Carolyn Brown?? Please tell me iif it a series book yet to be released and when? If not where can I find it please. She is one of my favorite authors.

    • Graeme: 6 months ago


      I grabbed a copy of the book, and looked at the excerpt. It discusses a character called Adele, and the Double Deuce Ranch.

      From searching that, there is a book “Talk Cowboy to me”, the 4th book in the Lucky Cowboys series, which has the exact same plot it sounds like, and that character.

      I compared the openings, and it is the same book. So that’s the book you are looking for.

    I must have already purchased more than half her books. Read a novella in one Linda Lael millers book and got hooked on carolyn brown. I also got lost in trying to find order in them have loved all so far. I love the cowboy ones. My friends laugh because my nose is one all the time. I also found Jennifer Ryan books same way. My favorite is still carolyn brown. I have read most of linda Lael books. That is how I found the others. Maisey Yates and Sarah Richardson.. keep them coming because you get attached to these characters. Thank you Carolyn for all the great stories.

  4. Sharon: 1 year ago

    Just read the 2 books about the Ryan brothers on Sunflower Ranch. Will there be a third one about Lucas??? Enjoyed the other 2!!!!

    • Joan Waters: 8 months ago

      Will there be a third book about the Ryan’s, Sunflower Ranch. If so, when? Loved the other 2 as well as all your other books.

  5. Janet Hagen: 2 years ago

    I’m confused. I read The Honeymoon Inn. I don’t know where it falls in a series because some titles have been changed in newer printings. Really enjoyed the book and would like to continue on.

    • Graeme: 2 years ago

      Hi Janet – as listed above, it’s the 2nd book in the Spikes & Spurs series. We list the alternate titles above too.

  6. Mary M Bertuzzi: 2 years ago

    I just finished The Hope Chest and loved it. This is the first book by Carolyn. Are you going to write Flynn’s story?

  7. Traci: 2 years ago

    I Love The way that Carolyn Brown writes. Romance or just a contemporary book about friendship she really knows how to bring the characters and their emotions to life! I have read about 70% of her books! I am so glad I stumbled into Lullaby Sky! I immediately knew I had to read EVERYTHING of hers! She also has an amazing narrator she uses a lot for her audio books Brittney Pressley. Please keep writing!

    I started reading the Burnt Boot Books tin November 2021–and I was hooked–started with Walmart, then went to Amazon and now I am finding them at BOOKS A MILLION.I cannot believe the humor and down to earth writing that she is able to produce–I am still building my Library of these books and enjoying every one I get.

    • Louise roy: 7 months ago

      eBay has a long list of Carolyn’s books. Most are four dollars and free shipping.

  10. Norma Kipps: 2 years ago

    I was given “My Give a Damn is Busted” in paperback not long after it came. I have been a Carolyn Brown fan since. I read lots of authors and many genres but I only collect hers and Robin Carr. Both are just so much fun to read. Several friends pass them amongst ourselves. I see that I am behind on my collection so I’ll have to catchup.

    Thanks for being such a wonderful writer and someone who is a pleasure to follow.

  11. Maria Ryan: 3 years ago

    One of the first Carolyn Brown books I read was ‘The Wedding Pearls’. I have just reread it, and fell in love all over again with this marvelous author. CB writes with compassion, humor, intimate knowledge of peoples’ inner struggles, understanding and love for humanity. I love her small town settings, and her gift of the South.
    I have been hooked for several years ago, and try to buy her stories whenever I can find them. They usually leave me feeling good and laughing.
