What will grow from the seeds of desire? Compass Girls, Book 2 Hope Compton never considered her parents' unconventional relationship a dangerous thing. Until, after a few too many drinks in a crowded bar, she admits her desire for a menage to her college boyfriend-and uninvited guests try to turn her fantasy into a nightmare. When Wyatt catches some thugs harassing the pretty daughter of his bosses, he doesn't hesitate to call on his partner Clayton to kick some asses. But then he realizes what a temptation the sweet, sheltered Hope presents. Especially her naughty wish to unleash her inner vixen-with both of them. Hope has no doubt her playmates want to fulfill her every desire, but something's holding them back. She has an idea what those somethings are. With luck, and a little help from her Compass cousins to hold her fathers off, she'll find what she needs in the shadows of the past-and convince them she's found two men of her own who are worthy of her love. Warning: Compass books bring love in every direction and every season. But not all of life's moments are filled with joy. Take the good with the bad, and the steamy.

Hope Compton is a bit unsatisfied with her current sex life.  When she shares an intimate detail with her boyfriend it leads to disaster.  Luckily for Hope two handsome cowboys come to her rescue.

 

Wyatt and Clayton would like to get real close with Hope but unfortunately she is the boss’s daughter.  Hope lives up to her Compton name as she decides to seduce her cowboy rescuers.  Will it be a crazy fling or will they find love in each other’s arms?

 

Hope Springs is a sizzling hot treat.  Hope, Wyatt and Clayton raise the temperature at Compton ranch.  Their scenes are highly emotional and devastatingly sexy.  Wyatt and Clayton have their own relationship but Hope comes along and completes them in ways they never imagined and going on their journey is a treat for the reader.

Sometimes life doesn’t go according to plan. Sometimes it’s better. Compass Girls, Book 1Sienna Compton has it all figured out. Her life’s goals are set and it is all systems go. At least, it was. Until her long-time boyfriend Josh threw a ringer into the master plan, requesting a “break” from their relationship. Now she’s left alone during the long, cold Wyoming winter, questioning what her heart has always believed to be true love. Daniel Lennon is facing an uncertain future. When a tragic accident leaves him unable to pursue his career as a professional bull rider, he finds himself at Compass Ranch, working to help Sienna’s father, Seth, build his horse breeding business. One look at Sienna has Daniel envisioning things he never imagined wanting—a permanent home, love, marriage—and he’s willing to use all the red-hot tricks in his sexual arsenal to melt the ice surrounding Sienna’s broken heart. When lust turns to genuine emotion, can Daniel convince Sienna to take a chance on something different and unexpected? Can he persuade her to consider a new path, one that will lead her directly to his arms...forever? Warning: Roping and riding, past and future, cold winter and fiery desire, lust and love all come together in this new Compass series. Saddle up and hang on. The Comptons are back!

Sienna Compton has had her life planned out practically since birth.  She’s going to marry her high school sweetheart Josh and they will have one big happy family.  However, things change rapidly when Josh needs a little “me” time and a handsome stranger walks into Sienna’s life.

Professional Bull Rider Daniel Lennon was forced to retire after a horrible accident.  He’s been content to travel until he finds himself at Compass Ranch helping Seth Compton with his horse breeding business.  Daniel can see himself staying here forever especially after he gets a good look at Seth’s daughter Sienna.  But can he convince Sienna that he’s the man to change her plans for?

Mari Carr and Jayne Rylon take us back to Compass Ranch and it’s filled with a new generation of Compton women ready to find love.  I wasn’t sure I was ready to revisit the powerful Compton men so soon after the first series, but I was pleased with Sienna and Daniel’s story.  Sienna is your typical stubborn Compton.  She’s so determined for her life to go a certain way and she gets very frustrated when life throws her a curve.  Good thing Daniel is determined as well.  Daniel and Sienna are downright hot together. The emotions between then are high and provide tons of heat.

I really love the relationship between all of the Compton girls.  They provide lots of laughs and love in this story and I look forward to the rest of them finding their true love.  Carr and Rylon give the reader lots of heart in the powerfully romantic Winter’s Thaw.
