The laugh-out-loud, heart-tugging standalone prequel romance in the bestselling Officers’ Ex-Wives Club series!
This sexy military pilot is about to meet his match in an unpredictable physics professor!
Kaci Boudreaux is every Southern mama’s nightmare, including her own. This former Miss Grits would rather tromp around in boots shooting off potato guns—and her mouth—than dress pretty and play nice with the boys. Especially her chauvinistic fellow professors, her ex-husband, and those military cargo pilots she accidentally started a war with.
Lance Wheeler is every Southern belle’s dream, except his ex-fiancé’s. After being left at the altar, he’d love to take his C-130 and fly far, far away. But since his bird technically belongs to Uncle Sam (as does he), a distraction in the form of a feisty fireball of a physics professor will do while he’s waiting for his next deployment with the Air Force.
He’s into her for the fun. She’s into him for the challenge. But when their secrets start slipping out, their hearts will be on the line. She needs roots. He wants to see the world. What will they do about needing each other?

Jamie Farrell became and auto-buy author for me when I read Southern Fried Blues soon after it came out. I'm always guaranteed lots of romance and laughter with each and every book from Ms. Farrell.
While I'm not sure I'll ever fall in love with another character as hard as I have for Kimmie in Ms. Farrell's Misfit Brides series, Kaci Boudreaux really does come in a close second. Kaci is super feisty and so freaking smart, yet also loves to shoot a potato gun and was even in beauty pageants growing up thanks to her mama.
Lance Wheeler had no idea he has met his match when he meets Kaci. I absolutely loved that Lance totally got Kaci and accepted her just as she was, unlike pretty much anyone had in the past. I seriously loved them as a couple and loved how Lance worked with Kaci to help her get over her fears of flying in so many creative ways.
Lance and Kaci had amazing chemistry and could totally burn up the sheets, but I really think the fact they made each other laugh and seemed to understand each other made me fall in love with them as a couple. Yes they both made some mistakes, but I loved they found a way to make their relationship work long-term.
Her Rebel Heart is the first book in the Officers' Ex-Wives Club from Ms. Farrell, though it wasn't released first. I had no issues with reading the books out of order, but if you are one to only read books in order, you have 2 more stories already out in the series that I absolutely loved every bit as much as Her Rebel Heart.
