A Wedding for Christmas By Lori Wilde $1.99
A Wedding for Christmas: A Twilight, Texas Novel - Lori Wilde

The whole town is ready for the holidays: The Cookie Club is baking, Main Street glitters with lights, the carolers sing . . .There’s even a Christmas wedding.

 

When bodyguard Ryder Southerland sees his best friend’s sister Katie at an L.A. Christmas party, he mistakes the slinky blonde for a celebrity stalker and tackles her. Then they tackle each other . . . at his place. The next morning, Katie’s gone, and Ryder tells himself it’s for the best. It isn’t. Now, one Christmas later, Ryder’s falling for the woman he’s been missing in the town he hasn’t missed at all . . .

 

Katie Cheek’s outgrown the romantic fantasies she had about Ryder when she was fifteen. Katie’s packed their hot night away in a box labeled “fling”—or tried to. But Twilight’s bad boy is the best man in her brother’s wedding. And up-close and personal, Ryder’s impossible to ignore. So Katie can either go into hiding—or surrender to Christmas magic.

New Release Review! Rugged Texas Cowboy (Cowboys and Captives 1 & 2) by Lora Leigh
Rugged Texas Cowboy - Lora Leigh

 

 

COWBOY AND THE CAPTIVE
Melina is one of two gorgeous twin daughters, the clever and considerate one who always spared her parents the humiliation of what her sister Maria had wrought. But now, Melina is finally ready to stand up for herself and seize control of her life—until she is kidnapped by a cowboy, named Jardin, who is dead-set on settling the score with her family. There’s only one catch: In capturing Melina, this tough, rough, hunk of a man has actually found a way to unleash her greatest fantasies, body and soul. . .

COWBOY AND THE THIEF 
Beautiful, spirited Angel Manning has always longed to experience the power of her ancestors’ most precious heirloom. Her mother once told her that the legendary Irish torque would lead Angel to the one man worthy of possessing her heart. But when Angel learns that her father, now a widower, has sold the torque to the notorious two-timer Jack Riley, she is furious. Of course she plans to take back what is rightfully hers, by whatever means necessary. But the fate of the ancient Druids works in mysterious ways. . .Could it be that this slick, smooth-talking cowboy was destined to satisfy Angel’s deepest desires all along?

 

 

 

To read Rugged Texas Cowboy is to double the pleasure because both of the stories is this book by Lora Leigh are scorching!

 

In the Cowboy and the Captive, Melina and Jardin heat up the pages with some sizzling chemistry and a very turbulent and emotional romance. The reader is kept on the edge of their seat as their relationship is full of secrets, miscommunication and mistaken identity which keeps this couple fighting their desires throughout.

 

In the Cowboy and the Thief, Angel and Jack’s relationship starts off on a very rocky path and continues to keep readers entertained throughout as their electric chemistry, stubborn personalities and blistering hot passion peppers their relationship. The clashes between the couple are amusing while keeping the happily ever after in suspense until the very end.

 

Lora Leigh is one my favorite authors and I always highly entertained by her fabulous characters and sensual worlds that always grab my attention and hold on tight. The two stories in Rugged Texas Cowboy are no different and I can’t wait to read another Cowboy and Captive romance.

 

 

 

Rugged Texas Cowboys is # 1 & 2 of Cowboys and Captives.

 

Rugged Texas Cowboys is available in print or ebook at:

Rugged Texas Cowboy - Lora Leigh

This book has two shorter stories included in it, Cowboy and the Captive and Cowboy and the Thief.

In Cowboy and the Captive, Luc Jardin is ready to seek revenge on Miss Maria Catarina Angeles after the stunt she pulled that almost got his best friend, Jack Riley killed.  Maria's brother, Joe ends up meeting Luc and together they decide that Luc will kidnap Maria and have her work off her debt.  What Luc doesn't realize is that he is actually kidnapping Maria's twin, Melina.  Of course Luc doesn't believe Melina when she tries telling him that she isn't Maria.  That's when the fun begins.  I really enjoyed the way these two pushed and pulled with each other.  They didn't want to like the other but then you don't always get what you want! ;)  I really enjoyed these characters and this story line.

In Cowboy and the Thief, Jack Riley is in Ireland visiting his friend, Joseph Manning.  What he didn't expect was to be captivated by his daughter, Angel.  After some fun sparring back and forth, the sparks begin to fly.  Joe thinks Jack just might be the one to bring the fire back into his daughter.  When Joe ends up selling Jack the Irish torque, Angel is furious, but Jack refuses to give it back.  Angel decides that she is going to steal the torque back from Jack once he's back in Texas.  Too bad he was waiting for her!  I really enjoyed the sparring between these two and it was interesting how the Irish history came into play.

The Christmas Cowboy Hero by Donna Grant
The Christmas Cowboy Hero (Heart of Texas) - Donna Grant

This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in Books.

I loved this book! I am not usually someone who reads a lot of Christmas stories. I will read them but I don't really look for them. This book made its way into my hands and something about that cover drew me right in and I wanted to start reading it right away. Once I started, I didn't want to stop and I ended up reading the whole thing from cover to cover in a single day. I really enjoyed every moment I spent reading this wonderful little story.

Clayton is ex-military and has been working overseas until he is called home to the family ranch. The ranch is in trouble and his dad is sick so Clayton must come home to run things and try to save the ranch. Abby has not had it easy. She has been raising her two younger brothers and doing her best to get ahead in life.

Abby and Clayton meet when Abby's brother is caught stealing cattle from the ranch Clayton's family owns. Not the best way to start things. Clayton turns out to be a really nice guy and instead of sending Abby's brother, Brice, to jail he lets him come and work his debt off at the ranch. Clayton also enlists Abby's help with the ranch's books hoping that she can sort out exactly what is going on.

I loved the characters in this book. Abby and Clayton were both amazing. Abby was strong and cared deeply for her two brothers. She was smart and willing to sacrifice her wants for the sake of other people. Clayton was such a good guy. He has had some things to deal with in his personal and military life. I loved this pair together. They had great chemistry from the very beginning and it was really wonderful to watch them fall in love.

The secondary characters were also really well done. Abby's two brothers, Brice and Caleb, played a large role in the story and were really great. Their relationship with their sister really helped illustrate how much she cared for them. Clayton's parents were also key players in the story. I liked how they welcomed Abby and her brothers as if they were family right from the start.

The mystery in the book kept things interesting. I really wanted to see Clayton save the ranch with Abby's help. There were a few scenes where we got to see Clayton, a former SEAL, in action which was pretty exciting. This was really a book more focused on romance than anything else and it did a wonderful job with it. I don't know that there was really anything too surprising in the book but everything was executed perfectly. I couldn't help but get swept away by this romantic tale.

I would highly recommend to fans of contemporary romance. This book had just the right combination of romance, action, and great characters. The story had just the right amount of Christmas adding just a bit to the story. This is the first book by Donna Grant that I have read and I am really looking forward to reading more of her work soon.

I received a review copy of this book from St. Martin's Press.

Initial Thoughts
I loved this book! Clayton and Abby were absolutely perfect together. I thought the secondary characters were amazing and the mystery held my interest. This probably falls somewhere between 4 and 5 stars for me so I am rounding up for now.

MY ONE SENTENCE REVIEW

 

I did enjoy The Point of Death by Roslyn Woods that reads like a character study of the good and the bad people do, how they perform in dangerous situations, under pressure, as the gals draw in their small circle of close friends and put the pieces of the mystery together.

 

I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of The Point of Death by Roslyn Woods.
