Horse whisperer Shane Stryker is done with passion. This time around, he's determined to meet someone who will be content with the quiet life of a rancher's wife. And the fiery, pint-size redhead who dazzles him at the local bar definitely does not fit the bill.

Small-town librarian Annabelle Weiss has always seen herself as more of a sweetheart than a siren, so she can't understand why Shane keeps pushing her away. Shane has formed the totally wrong impression of her but only he can help her with a special event for the next Fool's Gold festival. And maybe while he's at it, she can convince him to teach her a few things about kissing on hot summer nights, too--some lessons, a girl shouldn't learn from reading a book!

Summer Nights is a great summer read. I love that Annabelle wanted to learn how to ride a horse for her fundraiser for her bookmobile that she cares so much about. I don't want to give away anything. There was so many twists & turns in this book! I love that so much. There is 1 thing that I absolutely love a lot, but I can not say. My daughter is disabled & she takes horseback riding lessons. Summer Nights is my favorite book in the entire Fool's Gold series! I give 5 stars! Way to go Susan Mallery!!show more

I downloaded "Summer Nights" and finished it in a matter of hours. Susan Mallery is my favorite author so her books are never a chore to read =) "Summer Nights" stars the second Stryker brother, Shane, and Annabelle, a down-to-earth, bombshell, librarian. I liked that Shane showed more cowboyness (that's a word right???) than Rafe. My favorite animals are horses so add them to a book with a hunky cowboy and I'm set =) I also really liked that Annabelle didn't fit that stereotype of the prim, button-upped librarian. I loved the collection of species included in the story; it made me think back on all the cross species connections I've witnessed with my own animals. It's nice to read books that allow you to catch up with previous characters and see where their lives have taken them. Readers will get a peek at characters all the way from the beginning of the Fool's Gold series. I loved Annabelle's connection with Shane's stallion; she judged the animal based on her experience with him and not what everyone else was saying. Shane and Annabelle's relationship was passionate and sweet but I felt in their attempt to have no drama in their romance that it became too easy and dull. Even when a part of Annabelle's past reappears, the story went way too smoothly. The one thing that annoys me is how fertile all the women in Fool's Gold are. It seems as soon as they meet their soul mates they all end up pregnant. I give "Summer Nights" 4/5 stars. After having read it, I'm sooo excited to read more about Charlie and Clay in "All Summer Long". The brief look into Charlie's past makes me want to get to know her more
