The Last Chance Maverick




Fellow Ramblers, have you heard that Jonah Dalton is back in town? The sexy, citified architect hasn’t been seen round these parts since…well, we won’t get into all that. Let’s just say love has not been kind to our Jonah. 

But our sources whisper he’s recently been painting the town red with spirited artist Vanessa Brent. She’s been methodically working her way through her bucket list—and taking Jonah along for the ride. You’d never guess that Vanessa’s lust for life is masking her own heartbreaking secret. Can our hardworking maverick be the one to finally make her whole? Readers, we will let you draw your own conclusions—but we think this romance is a masterpiece in the making! 

Available in paperback September 20th!
Available in eBook October 1st!

christynebutler2009_250x375Welcome to my website! Please feel free to take a look around and stop by often to see what’s happening. I write contemporary romances full of life, love, a hint of laughter and perhaps a dash of danger too. I love the challenge of the boy-meets-girl, boy-loses-girl, boy-gets-girl-back and the journey of joy and hardship two people go through on their way to finding true love. Oh, and there has to be a ‘happily ever after’ or I’m just not satisfied!

The Last-Chance Maverick – Vanessa’s Bucket List!

One of things I loved best about writing THE LAST-CHANCE MAVERICK is the bucket list that my heroine, Vanessa created as a young girl with her best friend. They add more to the list as adults, especially after seeing how many items they’d managed to complete, but then…well, Vanessa is now on a mission to cross off each remaining item. And she’s decided Jonah Dalton is just the man to help her!

The front of the book shares a sneak peak, but here’s the entire list. It was fun to try to get as many of these as possible into the story!



TLCM_cover10.2014I’m so excited that my October release, THE LAST-CHANCE MAVERICK, received 4.5 Stars from RT Book Reviews!

Vanessa Brent sees Montana as a chance to find her muse, keep promises and start over after the tragic loss of her BFF. She doesn’t expect a sexy architect to open her eyes to passion and help complete her bucket list. Architect Jonah Dalton couldn’t have Rust Creek Falls fast enough when his marriage ended; now he’s back and a beautiful artist is making him think of the future.

Butler’s heartfelt tearjerker exhilarates. Her expressive narrative tells the fateful tale of her lovelorn hero and grieving, talent-blocked heroine’s rock road to love. The first kiss is sensational, the banter playful and the love scenes intense.

4 and 1/2 Stars from RT BookReviews for DESTINY’S LAST BACHELOR?

DestinysLastBachelor_June2014Eleven books in my writing career and I’ve received my first 4 & 1/2 Stars review from RT Book Reviews!

Avoiding her family and the fallout from a personal betrayal, L.A. socialite Priscilla Lennox heads to Wyoming to help a friend plan a charity bachelor auction. There is one hunky bachelor that she wants for herself. Dean Zippenella’s had a dating drought, partly because of his last disastrous relationship and partly because his dog, Daisy, hates women. But a sensual, out-of-his league debutante melts both of their hearts. Butler’s setting is the perfect backdrop for her Jersey transplant hero and cosmopolitan heroine’s romance. The visual narrative thoughtfully follows the romance from the impressive first meeting to the fiery finish.


Back in Destiny and We’re Flirting!

My October release, FLIRTING WITH DESTINY is out in bookstores now (will be available October 1st as an eBook!) and it’s great to be back in my town of Destiny, Wyoming with one of my favorite families…the Murphys!

I first introducted the Murphys in my April 2012 release, HAVING ADAM’S BABY and now it’s Devlin’s time to find his happily ever after! As the middle of six brothers, Dev has always been a natural born charmer who relies on his good looks and great smile to get out of trouble until a horrific crash in the company helicopter he was piloting left him lost in the forest for three days with a broken body. Eight months later and he’s recovered–for the most part–but then he meets a very special lady who agrees to help him…even though it’s the last thing she wants to do!

FLIRTING WITH DESTINY will also be avaible in Australia and the United Kingdom starting October 1st and here are covers! It’s amazing how different my hero looks all around the world!


4 Stars! “Butler’s return to Destiny, Wyo., is touching, her premise is timely and moving and the star-crossed couple and their co-stars make the read more real.” -RT BookReviews

Same Book…Different Worldwide Covers!

US_AU_UKcoversThis month I’m celebrating my latest release, THE MAVERICK’S SUMMER LOVE, Book #2 in the “Montana Mavericks: Rust Creek Cowboys” continuity, here in the United States, but it’s also very exciting to see the book is being released by Mills & Boon in the United Kingdom (part of Harlequin Enterprises) and in Australia at the same time…each with it’s own cover!

It’s fun to see how my couple, Dean Pritchett & Shelby Jenkins, are protrayed across the world. Of course, the United Kingdom and Australia books are actually 2-1 books, and I am combined with the terrific Brenda Harlen, so maybe the UK and Australian covers reflect her hero and heroine! :-D At least both our heroines are blondes (and single mothers)!
