New Release Review! Cowboy, Cross My Heart (Heart of Texas #2) Donna Grant!
Cowboy, Cross My Heart - Donna Grant

 

 

New York Times bestselling author Donna Grant takes you deep inside the Texas rodeo scene, where danger and desire ride side by side. . .

 

Naomi Pierce isn't the type to let a cowboy sweep her off feet. It's not her first rodeo, after all. But when she returns to her Texas hometown, she can't help but be swept up again in the rough-and-tumble world of hard-riding, bronco-busting good-ol'-boys she loved as a girl. She might be here to photograph her Rodeo Queen best friend. But it's one fine-looking cowboy who really captures her eye...

 

Brice Harper is all man, all muscle, and all heart. From the moment he rides into the stadium, he can't help but notice the beautiful stranger with a camera watching him from the stands. It doesn't take a zoom lens to see the sparks of instant attraction. But things really heat up when he meets Naomi up-close--and he discovers that someone is stalking her friend. Brice wouldn't be any kind of cowboy if he didn't offer to help the ladies out. But can the rough rider keep this spirited shutterbug out of danger--without risking his heart?

 

 

Thrilling suspense and treacherous adversaries draw readers deep inside the Texas rodeo scene, where danger and desire ride side by side. Naomi Pierce and Brice Harper are two strong, convincing characters that readers can easily fall for as they are pulled into their story with a magnetic attraction that holds them hostage once they are in. The romance between Naomi and Brice is full of sizzling electricity and red hot passion although the relationship is threatened by the situation that they find themselves ensnared in. There are plenty of emotional turmoil to accompany that situations as well the kind that goes along with any newly forming relationship to keep readers engaged with the characters.

 

While thrilling suspense and exhilarating danger ensures that that they keep turning the pages as the search for a stalker makes Naomi and Bride targets of manipulative and powerful enemies. Surprising twists, family issues, friend issues, a budding romance and adrenaline pumping events guarantees that there is never a dull moment and since the author paints such vivid imagery and has created brilliant characters the readers has no problem becoming caught up in all the thrills and romance.

 

The steady to fast paced plot is further enhanced with believable and realistic issues faced by the characters and the well developed world is enriched by the loyalty and courage of the characters in the Heart of Texas series which enthralls readers and assures that they keep coming back for more.

She has been dubbed as giving the “paranormal genre a burst of fresh air” by the San Francisco Book Review. Her work has been hailed as having “deft plotting and expert characterization” by Publisher’s Weekly and “sizzling” by RT Book Reviews.

 

She has been recognized with awards from both bookseller and reader contests including the National Reader’s Choice Award, Booksellers Best Award, as well as the coveted K.I.S.S. Award from RT Book Reviews.

Born and raised in Texas, she also has ties across the border in Louisiana. Growing up with two such vibrant cultures, her Cajun side of the family taught her the “spicy” side of life while her Texas roots gave her two-steppin’ and bareback riding.

Review! Crawley Creek Volume Three (Crawley Creek 5-7) Lori King!
Crawley Creek Volume Three - Lori King

 

 

 

 

 

Crawley Creek 5,6,7
Handcuffed by Destiny, The Lawman’s Lover, Paw Prints on Her Heart


Crawley Creek Ranch Volume 3


A family of misfit foster brothers is intent on building a legacy they can someday leave behind. They want respect, a sense of belonging, and…love? Follow these rough, raw, romantic North Dakota cowboys as they each meet their match and learn that family is more than blood, and love is worth the effort.

_____________________________
Handcuffed by Destiny


A broken woman.
A man of honor.
And a mountain to climb.
They say that love conquers all, but can it also overcome the horrors of PTSD? Destiny isn’t sure she can let Bran in, but she can’t seem to let him go. Will Bran walk away knowing he can never know her completely, or is he handcuffed to his own destiny?

 

The Lawman’s Lover

 

A divorcee whose broken dreams are buried so deep she can’t remember where she put them.


A Deputy Sheriff with a mountain of responsibilities weighing him down.
A fling. No strings attached. No plans for the future.
Until someone’s heart gets broken.
Find out how Deputy Colby Bricker and waitress Elizabeth Newcomer take their shared past and build a new future, in this sister story to the Crawley Creek Ranch Series.

 

Paw Prints on Her Heart

 

She was wounded by war, and he was wounded by a bad marriage. Two people with too many problems to open their hearts, but fate won’t take no for an answer.

 


The fifth book in the Crawley Creek series is a gripping read that easily draws readers in keeps glued to the pages with an emotionally turbulent romance. Destiny and Bran are two strong, compelling characters that encourage empathy and understanding in readers as they become caught up in the couple’s story.

 

Next, The Lawman’s Lover is a delightful read with two charismatic characters that easily draw readers into their story while they take their shared past and build a new future despite the emotional turmoil of the past.

 

Then in Paw Prints On Her Heart readers can’t help but enjoy Payton and Luke story as they fight Payton’s emotional issues as well Luke’s family issues in order to reach for the happily ever after.

 

All three of these Crawley Creek romances are gripping, emotional romances that capture the reader’s heart as the heroes and heroines have to fight for their happily ever after, they are all fast paced with a smooth flow that keeps readers following along until they have read all three stories. Some of the subjects may be a bit touchy, but for the most part the romances are quite inspiring as they show courage to take a step forward and reach for those HEAs. There is an overall plot that suspense and excitement to the story as some mysterious enemy attacks the ranch and its inhabitants, so while each of the romances are standalone, it is best to read these stories in sequential order so that readers can get the most of their reading experience.

 

Although, I wish that the stories were longer, I completely enjoy each and every visit I make to the Crawley Creek ranch and the wonderful characters that make their home there and I can’t wait until my next visit.

Best-selling author, Lori King, is also a full-time wife and mother of three boys. Although she rarely has time to just enjoy feminine pursuits; at heart she is a hopeless romantic. She spends her days dreaming up Alpha men, and her nights telling their stories. An admitted TV and book junkie, she can be found relaxing with a steamy story, or binging in an entire season of some show online. She gives her parents all the credit for her unique sense of humor and acceptance of all forms of love. There are no two loves alike, but you can love more than one with your whole heart.


With the motto: Live, Laugh, and Love like today is your only chance, she will continue to write as long as you continue to read. Thank you for taking the time to indulge in a good Happily Ever After with her.

Release Week Review! Racked and Stacked (Blacktop Cowboys #9) Lorelei James!
Racked and Stacked - Lorelei James

 

 

Opposites don't just attract in the West--they sizzle--and Wyoming has never been hotter than in the latest sexy Blacktop Cowboys® novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Hang Tough.

 

Growing up with three older brothers, Larissa "Riss" Thorpe defines the term tomboy--a moniker that never mattered to her until she crossed paths with sexy cowboy playboy, Ike Palmer. His declaration that he prefers his women soft and feminine is the one benefit to becoming his business partner. Since Riss is obviously not his type, there's little chance they'll mix business and pleasure when they're in close quarters on the road together.

 

Former cattle broker Ike Palmer was ready for a new chapter in his life when he partnered with Riss, a contrary redhead who lords her mechanical abilities over him at every turn. Ike raised his three younger sisters; he knows a thing or three about how women work. The problem is...Riss is unlike any woman he's ever met.

With the odds stacked against them, Riss and Ike will have to choose between the stubbornness that keeps them apart and the fiery attraction that could lead to something more...

 


“Racked and Stacked” the ninth book in the “Blacktop Cowboys” series is an entertaining snarky romance where frienemies become lovers despite the stubbornness that keeps them apart.

 

Rissa and Ike are two very strong characters that leap from the pages and grab reader’s attention right from the start and the chemistry between them sizzles with a strong electrical current that singes the pages all while these characters do their best to fight their attraction. Readers can’t help but become caught up in their romance as the characters capture hearts, send sparks flying in every direction and spark spontaneous laughter throughout their very fiery and passionate struggle to out stubborn the other and overcome their issues in order to even begin to think about a relationship.

 

The plot is fast paced and keeps readers on the edge of their seats with anticipation of what Riss and Ike will come up with next and just how will they sabotage themselves again. There is also lots of friends and family to add their opinions to the mix which keeps this couple working hard to overcome the odds and those same friends and families adds to the fun and laughter of the story with their own shenanigans as well. The romance and the characters also has realistic problems that the Riss and Ike will have to overcome which adds depth and makes it easy to connect to these wonderfully lively characters.

 

I thoroughly enjoyed Racked and Stacked and I couldn’t help but feel as if I really got to know Riss and Ike through Lorelei James creative writing that brings the story, the scenery and the characters to vibrant life.
