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 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.

Hot!!
Rugged Texas Cowboy - Lora Leigh

Rugged Texas Cowboy by Lora Leigh is like hitting the jackpot, you get two book in one.  Both books are well-written and populated with amazing characters.  The first book, Cowboy And The Captive is Luc and Melina's story of mistaken identity.  This is my favorite of the two books.  There's plenty of drama, action, humor and sizzlin' sexy bits.  The second book, Cowboy And The Thief is Jack and Angel's story.  Their tale is loaded with drama, humor and yes, enough heat to start a bonfire.  I enjoyed reading Rugged Texas Cowboy and look forward to reading more from Lora Leigh in the future.  Both of the stories in this book are complete, no cliff-hangers.

 

I voluntarily read an Advance Reader Copy of this book that I received from NetGalley.

TV Show Castle's Nikki Heat Book
Heat Wave - Richard Castle

Ladies, what would you do if I told you that the most handsome man on the whole planet will spend three glorious weeks with YOU at YOUR house? And all you have to do is make yourself a pot of jo, relax in a hammock, and of course slip on something comfy but sexy as well and the best part is you don’t have to be on a reality TV show, or sign up for an adventure cruise that would cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. It’s free. It’s hot off the presses. And he is the answer to all of your dreams. Ladies, I give you the one man that can actually make my heart do the tango: Richard Castle and his new book Heat Wave.

 

Yes, I understand that Richard Castle is a fictitious character in the new hit show Castle that premiers Monday’s at 10pm on ABC, but come on! It’s Nathan Fillion. Who doesn’t like a “rugged, good-looking” man on TV these days, and Nathan Fillion is doing a superb job filling in those shoes, am I right or what?  If you have not had the pleasure of seeing the show Castle, then you will need to borrow a friends TV, borrow their cable network and watch every Monday at 10 to understand my feelings (or you can also come into the library, go on YouTube and watch the shows on there for free). If you were fortunate enough to watch Castle, bless you. Still, why the reason of telling you ALL of this when I should be writing about a book that I read?

 

That famous writer Richard Castle based his novel Heat Wave on the proud, the few, the NYPD.

 

In Heat Wave, Detective Nikki Heat and journalist Jameson Rook are in charge of investigating the over-the balcony murder of a major Manhattan real-estate developer. As suspects start to pile up, things get a little complicated as people aren’t what they seem, even the victim.

 

So, how to bottom-line this one?

 

It’s a who-dunnit, suspenseful storyline with one other overpowering twist to it – romance. The play back and forth between the two characters, Heat and Rook, is fun and unforced, often less predictable than the mystery they’re pursuing.

 

So come to your local library and follow Heat and Rook through the streets of Manhattan and figure out if the butler did it.

 

But remember, “It’s like a mystery novel, you don’t just go to the last page do you?”
