BIG SKY SUMMER by Linda Lael Miller
Big Sky Summer (Swoon-Worthy Cowboys #4)
I have enjoyed this series. I have read all four so far. It starts with a wedding of Sheriff Boone Taylor and Tara Kendall. We see a lot of the same characters from previous books. I like catching up with old friends seeing what the characters have been doing since the last book.
Walker Parrish was attending the wedding as guest and friend of Boone. His sister does not come to weddings since she was left by the alter when Hutch
called off the wedding to her in this church two years ago. Now he is one of the best man for Boone the other best man is Slade.
Casey Elder is singing at the wedding. She is a famous singer that had moved to town a few years ago. She wants her two teenagers going to school for the first time. Casey has done a good job at keeping the secret of who the father of her two children is. Hardly anyone knows. In fact she hid the news to the father by lying to him that it was some other guy till it happened a second time.
Walker when he found out both children were his he wanted to get married and bring them back home to his ranch. Casey wanted to keep singing. She agreed to let Walker be close to her kids as a family friend. He has always wanted more. He loves his kids.
Casey's daughter Clare 14 has given up on wishes. She tells her mom she has wished since she was little for a dad. Casey realizes that she made a mistake and needs to tell her children that Walker is their father. She is afraid that her kids will hate her for telling them lies for years about their father.
Casey and Walker met at the rodeos around the country when she was just starting out singing and Walker was being in the rodeos. They were great in bed but out they wanted different things. In fact when Casey came over to Walker's ranch to tell him that he was right they fell into the same patterns sleeping together and then fighting.
They have a lot of issues they need to work out as a family. It is not easy for the kids to realize that their mom lied to them. Walker did to. Walker did not even tell his sister about them. She thought she was a honoree Aunt to them not a real aunt.
Does have some love scenes in it, has horses and rodeos, ranching and small town helping those in need. In other words it is a romance book written by Linda Lael Miller.

Description below taken off of Netgalley.
welcomes you home to Parable, Montana-where love awaits.
With his father's rodeo legacy to continue and a prosperous spread to run, Walker Parrish has no time to dwell on wrecked relationships. But country-western sweetheart Casey Elder is out of the spotlight and back in Parable, Montana. And Walker can't ignore that his "act now, think later" passion for Casey has had consequences. Two teenage consequences!
Keeping her children's paternity under wraps has always been part of Casey's plan to give them normal, uncomplicated lives. Now the best way to hold her family together seems to be to let Walker be a part of it-as her husband of convenience. Or will some secrets-like Casey's desire to be the rancher's wife in every way-unravel, with unforeseen results?
