Book Three: More Than a Maid
Ramon Barboza loves two things: his ranch and his freedom. An occasional drunken fling is all he needs to satisfy his desire for a woman.
Marcy Cameron never wanted to be a live-in maid, but her cleaning business is falling apart. When her friend offers her an overpaid position as housekeeper for a month, it’s an offer she can’t refuse. Marcy packs her bags and heads to Texas. But the house comes with a grumpy, secretive, and obstinate occupant: Ramon, who thinks his life and his house are fine just the way they are. The sassy, headstrong Marcy quickly butts heads with the master of the house. But is the tension between them merely anger, or something more?
As Cara and Victor plan their wedding at the ranch, Henry’s secrets cast a shadow. Ramon has his suspicions, but refuses to discuss them with anyone.
What made Henry run off? Why is he living off the grid? Why has he still not returned? Victor and Armando are determined to uncover the truth, but will the answers be more than they bargained for?
In the conclusion of the Barboza Brothers trilogy, all of these questions will be answered.
I just finished book 2 it was amazing. I am so anxious to know what the big secret with Henry and the brother is and why Henry is in jail. Also who is Marcy?
Marcy is Cara’s best friend from book one. All questions will be answered in book three.
Marcy is Cara’s best friend. She is from the first book.
Jasmine, You need to go back and read the book again. Marcy is Cara’s friend who has a cleaning service. Cara used to work for her. All of this is in the first book.
I completely forgot about Marcy! I’m so excited for book 3!!!!
completely understandable I hope Ididn’t come across as ‘short’ in my comment. I just reread it and didn’t like the way it looked. I, like you, LOVE both books and am looking forward to reading the third book. I also loved the Safe with Me books. Reeni is one fantastic author!:)
I loved both books and I’m anxiously awaiting book 3. WOW!!!!!!!!!
I loved both books, but i hate the waiting to confirm the secret! I do have an idea about what the secret might be, but i can’t wait!!!!!
I totally loved the first 2 books about Victor and Armando, great books. I cannot wait until book 3 is released. I definitely think that Ramon and Marcy are going to be great. I also agree that Alexis and Esteban would be a great story as well. I hope to see more books in a series. Thanks for the wonderful reading. WOW.
Will Book 3 also be available on Kindle?
Yes, it will be available on Kindle for sure.
I love the first two and can’t wait for the third. I also have my ideas about Henry. Looking forward to reading other books by Reeni also.
I did’t know when reading the first book that it was a series, was so happy when I finished to find that there was a book 2 Loved both books can’t wait for book,3

Waiting for book #3…can’t wait
I have been waiting for book3 forever.STOP talking about Safe With Me.I read it loved it but now I want something new.(More Than a Maid).Please your word that this book will be here soon.
I will respond privately to this comment.
Omg! I can’t wait for book three! How much longer?!
I have been extremely ill for the past week and couldn’t write. I hoped to have the book published by now. All I can say is, “ASAP.” I basically just breathe and write at the moment, and I’m only working on this book.
Just finished reading Book 2, spent about an hour trying to find Book 3 then stumbled unto this blog. Both books were amazing was up past midnight reading last night. Anxious to find out the big family secret. Loved the twist with Katie’s father.
Great read the barboza brothers series…..each book leaves you wanting more ( in a good way). I read quite a lot ( just ask my husband…lol) and I have a few favorite authors and now I have a new favorite..Reeni Austin…..please keep them coming
Reeni, my email is
email@example.com. I read the first
two books. Love them both. Can’t wait for
the third. I bet it’s just as great. VM
I hope you are feeling better! Truly truly sorry that you are not been feeling well! Please get well soon!
Can you like..put The book out already!?
No, I can not “put the book out already.” I am in the process of rewriting, then it needs to be edited. It will most likely be out in the next few weeks. I was sick for an entire week last month with food poisoning, which put me behind.
Here’s a blog post that explains more.
The good thing about waiting this long is i’ve read soooooooo many books since (i read a book a day) that i’ve somewhat forgotten few details of book one so i get to read them again
I just found your books and promised to never read another trilogy. But I love your characters , love the family and their interaction. They seem so genuine. Can’t wait for book 3.
Just finished the first book, really great. I have already signed for the second one.. Hope number three will be ready when I finish it. I have really enjoyed this author’s work.
Loved these 2 books cant wait, but im going to try her other name
,shaina richmond to see what there like, if there anything like her others im in for a good read.thanks Reeni
By “her” you mean “me.” I never know what to say when people leave a comment talking about me in the third person. I answer my comments myself. I’m glad you loved the books!
My book “Safe With Me” is very different from the Reeni books. My Shaina pen name is where I write stuff that’s more “for me.” It has my heart and soul. The Reeni books have just been a fun break from all the emotion I poured into Safe With Me.
I am sorry to hear that you were unwell and i would just like to tell you how much i am looking forward to the next book. also the wait will only mean that i get to re-read the first two books. what is the point in paying for something you are only going to read once? If you could just give me a heads-up when the 3rd book is a couple of days from release i can give these two fab books my undevided attention again lol. looking forward to another fab book and i’m sure it will be worth waiting for. just know that we are only impatient because the first two were so good but like they say anything good is worth waiting for.
I started reading reading the second book around 1am. I just finished in between snacking. The sad part is I know when I’m finish reading the third book I am going to be upset because there isn’t more! Reeni you are a fabulous writer! Your books are never boring and I love that you truly put all of you into your writing. You are truly gifted and I am looking forward to spending a many more relaxing and peaceful days with your books. The best thing about it is I feel like I am in the mist of your characters. You are fabulous! Stay safe and be well.
Marcy is a freind of Cara’s. She worked in housekeeping an helped give Cara a second job cleaning building.
Would like to know when more than a maid is available.
Hi there from sunny South Africa. Gosh, I read both books in one day (in the ladies, at lunch, then the ladies, then the ladies,then the ladies, went home and played sick wink wink, closed the bedroom door and finished my books.
How will I know when More than a Maid is released??
Thank you kindly.
I just came back from visiting family in Dallas, TX, and my ‘very young’ 78 year old aunt is now also anxiously awaiting the third book. I told her how wonderful your books were, and she immediately downloaded them and read both while I was there. ( I didn’t tell her about your Safe with Me books, because given her age, I wasn’t sure the more explicit scenes would be her forte. I, of course, love them too!)
You are my favorite fictional author!
Just finish reading both books for the second time. When is More than a Maid due to come out?
Hoping for next Friday, the 12th.
Love your books i just stumbled on to them by chance. i was in between books trying to figure out what direction to go in saw book one was free(great way to get people involved in a series) read it loved it just bought book 2 goona read it and no doubt love it
Thank you! I hope you’ll love Armando’s book. Ramon’s is coming soon. I hope to have it on all stores by Friday, July 12th.
I’m so happy! I’m going to read the first two books again, so I’ll be super ready for the third book.
I’m an avid reader, and have to admit that I never tire of rereading your books.
Thank you for all the pleasure you give,
I love that Cara was a size 14 and wore spanx! So tired of the books that have size 2 ladies in them with the perfect body, perfect hair…. Thank you for making someone real!
If you loved Cara, then you should read all the other books. Reeni/ Shaina’s characters are very relatable, with memorable stories.
It’s no secret that I’m a big fan.
I hope the third book is out soon I am really hooked xxxxx
The third book has been published since July. If you scroll up this page, you’ll see links to purchase it.
