When the citizens of Bramble, TX get an idea in their collective heads, it sticks. First they decided (in Going Cowboy Crazy) that “Hope” and Slate needed to get married, then the rumor took hold that the real Hope was pregnant. And as Make Mine a Bad Boy gets started, just about the entire town still believes Hope is with child despite her adamant denials. But we’ve all heard about protesting too much…
As the townsfolk gossip, Hope begins secretly hooking up with bad boy Colt, who’s also the older brother of Hope’s best friend Shirlene. This time the romance was much more believable than what Katie Lane created in Going Cowboy Crazy. Hope was also a more interesting lead than her twin; she had more spunk and (of course) more emotional ties to the community.
