New Small Town Romance from Laura Trentham Coming 7/31/18
Set The Night On Fire is the sixth and final book, of the Cottonbloom Series.
Mack Abbot was furious at his brother, Ford. His sibling sold off a quarter of the family business to an outsider, divorcee, Ella Boudreaux. As soon as Mack could put enough money together, he was buying the woman’s share. As far as Mack was concerned, that day couldn’t come fast enough. The Garage was his family’s business. Ella Boudreaux was not an Abbot; so she needed to go.
Ella was tired of men pushing her around. Those days were over. They ended; the moment she divorced her controlling ex-husband. Mack was doing his best to intimidate her. As far as Ella was concerned, her reasons for wanting a piece of the Abbot Brothers Garage was none of Mack’s business. The old Ella Boudreaux might have put up with bullying, but not the new, empowered, Ella.
Mack did his best to view Ella, as nothing more, than an irritating adversary. But, the thing was, she wasn’t. Ella was beautiful, sassy, and smart. And, as far as Mack could see, was sincerely trying to improve the garage. Ella wanted nothing to do with men. Admiring them from a distance was okay, but up close, they were all the same, except for Mack. Sure, he could be a bear, like the rest of them, gruff and moody. But, to Ella, Mack was a handsome, teddy bear, with a big, squishy heart.
Set The Night On Fire is a small town romance, crafted with plenty of southern family charm, heartwarming tenderness, and spicy romantic moments.
Thank you, St. Martin’s Press and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy.

An award-winning author, Laura Trentham was born and raised in a small town in Tennessee. Although, she loved English and reading in high school, she was convinced an English degree equated to starvation. She chose the next most logical major—Chemical Engineering—and worked in a hard hat and steel toed boots for several years.
She writes sexy, small town contemporaries and smoking hot Regency historicals. KISS ME THAT WAY, Cottonbloom Book 1, won the Stiletto Contest for Best Long Contemporary and finaled in the National Readers Choice Award. THEN HE KISSED ME, Cottonbloom Book 2, was named an Amazon Best Romance of 2016 and was a finalist for the National Excellence for Romance Fiction. TILL I KISSED YOU, Cottonbloom Book 3, is a finalist in the Maggie contest. LEAVE THE NIGHT ON, the latest Cottonbloom book, was named an iBooks Best Book of the Month and a Recommended Read from NPR.
When not lost in a cozy Southern town or Regency England, she’s shuttling kids to soccer, helping with homework, and avoiding the Mt. Everest-sized pile of laundry that is almost as big as the to-be-read pile of books on her nightstand.
