Rochelle Burton is a successful author with a stalker.  She is headed to her home town, outside of Las Vegas for her latest book tour and needs a bodyguard.  It just so happens that her ex is a professional bullet catcher. Rochelle isn’t all that excited to be contacting her ex to be her bodyguard. After all the last time they saw each other he took her virginity and she snuck out of bed and right out of town.

 

Gideon Lane has shared his bed with many women since Rochelle but none compared to her.  He is shocked when she asks for his help.  There is no way he could turn her down especially after seeing the woman she has grown up to be. Gideon has no problem keeping her safe from her stalker but who will protect her from him?

 

Rochelle and Gideon are determined to keep things professional but some things are just plain impossible. Will they rekindle their love or will a tryst get things out of their system?

 

Rochelle and Gideon have great chemistry in Hot and Bothered.  Unfortunately, their lengthy internal monologues got on my nerves.  The lead up to them having sex was hot but after things fizzled for me.  The stalker story wasn’t as suspenseful as I would have liked. Maybe I would have enjoyed it more if I had read the first two books in the series and knew all of the secondary characters.  There are definitely some colorful characters that reside at the Rough & Tumble but I couldn’t get into them. :(

Tilly Jackson is a barmaid in the West.  Usually content, she sometimes gets a ‘feeling’ and realizes that the time to move on from where she is to another town. She’s getting that feeling now, but something else has caught her eye, or rather someone else…

 

Leo Samuels can’t believe that someone as lovely as Tilly would want to be with him – which is why he is a bit leery of her request.  But as more time passes, what started out as a brief encounter turns into something more.

 

First off, Tilly was brave and I adored her.  She wasn’t afraid to go after what she wants and she wanted Leo.  Speaking of Leo, he was a long tall drink of blue eyed water and was sexy with a capital S.  I like how he treated Tilly and I loved that he loved her.

 

Not a bad novel. I found that some of the typos pulled me out of the story, other than that, In the Hands of an Outlaw wasn’t a bad book – but it could have been a bit more polished.  I think Renee LaRuse is a talented author having read more books from her and I can honestly say that her books are entertaining and quite erotic.  Which are both winners in my book.

Good ole boy and country western star Devin McClain enjoys what he does for a living, who wouldn’t? Fame, fortune, and women are enjoyable to this nonchalant cowboy and he knows that some fans are more into him than others.  He has to take a step back and look, however, when he begins getting threats that seem out of the ordinary.  Agreeing to a bodyguard, Devin wants his protection on the down low…like that is going to happen!

Liberty Masterson is ex-military and has had somewhat of a hard time adjusting to life as a civilian.  Becoming a bodyguard for a highly respected security firm, Liberty agrees to become the bodyguard of a country and western star not knowing that in order to protect him quietly, she will have to pose as his girlfriend.  Piece of cake, right?

I just love Lorelei James.  She makes me giggle every time I read her and while I am not sure that is her intention, I love to laugh with her books all the same – Devin expected his bodyguard to be soft and sexy – he got balls to the wall Liberty Masterson.  Except, he instinctively knew the one place she was born to be soft – in his bed.  Alone with each other, their passion flared pretty dang bright and Liberty and I both couldn’t get enough of Devin McClain.

I highly recommend reading Ms. James Blacktop Cowboys series in order – the reader doesn’t have to but why waste an opportunity to immerse yourself in the wonderful world of Hillbilly Rockstar and the rest of Ms. James’ wild, wild west?

Harper, an American school teacher, is swapping lives with a friend in Australia for two weeks.  Having rarely been out of Chicago, life in the Bush is a drastic change.  However, the biggest change is the feelings of lust awakened when Harper spends time with Stockmen Keith and Marc.  Keith and Marc fall hard and fast for the sexy American but she is holding something back from them.  They are determined to soothe Harper’s soul and steal her heart if she’s willing to give them a shot.  Will Harper find love or break two hearts when she heads back to the USA?

 

Misplaced Hands is another great addition to the Foreign Affairs series from Author’s Lexxie Couper and Mari Carr!  I love how this series gives the reader the best of both worlds.  Aussies and Americans come together to make sweet, sinfully sexy love in Misplaced Hands.  I really enjoyed getting to know Harper and watch how she basically swept Keith and Marc off their feet.  I hope there are books to come in the series or an update on the international couples.  I’d love to see what hijinks the characters come up with next.

Fans of Lorelei James will enjoy the delightful foreward she has written for Cowboy Lust.  It gives the reader great insight to her famous cowboys.

 

“Riding Double” by Cari Quinn

Cari Quinn’s Riding Double is sexy and humorous.  Danica gets more than she bargained for as Jack proves to be an Alpha cowboy in Riding Double!

 

“Under the Southern Cross” by Cheyenne Blue

Sam saw something she shouldn’t and now she is hiding in the outback under witness protection.  If only she could hide her attraction to Jake, a station jackaroo, as well as she hides her identity.  When these two come together sparks fly but will their passion get them killed?

 

Under the Southern Cross is a fast-paced romance with a little bit of suspense and a whole lot of attraction.  Cheyenne Blue’s aussie romance rocks!

 

“Banging the Cowboy” by Randi Alexander

Drummer Annie Paris has had her eyes set on cowboy Rafe McCord for the past year but his reputation kept her away.  She needs a relationship not a one-night-stand but when he asks her out her hormones take over.

“Ladies Love Country Boys” by Cat Johnson

Businesswoman Julia Craven finds herself broken down in the middle of nowhere.  While waiting for a tow she spies a fair and decides to have a little fun.  Rodeo Cowboy Morgan Mitchell thought his wildest ride was going to be on a bull but once he spied Julia he knew he had to have her.

 

A bad night turns really, really good when Julia and Morgan heat things up at the rodeo.  Ladies Love Country Boys is an excellent erotic novella.

 

“Drought” by Michael Bracken

After teacher Amanda Wilcox sprains her ankle running Cowboy Cade Garrett comes to her rescue.  Things heat up as the two attend the Cattleman’s Ball together.  Will a rescue lead to love?

 

Bracken’s Drought gives the reader the right amount of sweet and naughty.

 

“Roped” by Charlene Teglias

Regan Morris is having a Blue Christmas until her friend Nancy forces her to attend a holiday party.  She’s having fun until she comes face-to-face with the man she ran away from years earlier.  This time Jonas is not letting her go.

 

Get ready to be tied up in Charlene Teglia’s Roped.  Jonas and Regan create plenty of fireworks that keep this novella interesting.

 

“Rough Stock” by M. Marie

Bronco rider Kennedy Rawlings took a bad fall a year ago and now she’s back in the same place ready to get back in the ring.  But first she needs some relaxation only one special cowboy can provide.

 

Rough Stock is a slow building story that leads to a strong finish.

 

“The Ranch Hand” by Sedona Fox

Charlene has grown up in a man’s world.  She loves her father’s ranch and is disturbed to learn he has arranged for her to marry.  When her intended’s ranch hand shows up the sparks fly.  How will they deal with their budding feelings when her intended arrives?

 

Sedona Fox’s The Ranch Hand is one of my faves.  This little western historical provides the right amount of humor and sex.

 

“Small Town Famous” by Lissa Matthews

Bethann and Tommy have been together forever but she’s afraid his eye may be wondering to the cute coed’s in town.  Bethann goes to extremes and lands herself in jail where Tommy must go to extremes to prove his love.

 

Small Town Famous is a funny novella.  This quick page-turner is full of spice.

 

“The Storm” by Tahira Iqbal

The Storm is a sexy reunion romance.  Candace and Brent make for a steamy couple.

 

“Caught Unawares” by Nena Clements

Reece McCord has the hots for his best friends little sister Lacy.  When he spots her screaming while running into the pond he offers her assistance.  He never expected the day to end with a happily ever after.

“Some Like It Dirty” by Kimber Vale

Jenna McManus is headed to the country for her company and this city girl is totally out of her element.  Good thing there is a hot cowboy to come to her rescue.

 

Kimber Vale’s Some Like It Dirty is another favorite of mine.  Jenna makes me laugh so much at the beginning.  And her sexy rescuer turns up the heat in a major way.  Some Like It Dirty is the perfect afternoon treat.

 

“Raney’s Last Ride” by Chaparrita

When Sarah finds her husband dead she goes to extremes to seek revenge.

 

Raney’s Last Ride has plenty of sex but not many connections.  I couldn’t get into this story.

 

“Runaway Bride” by Delilah Devlin

Jackson Lowry is going to get the woman he loves even if he has to kidnap her, tie her up and kill her with pleasure.

 

Runaway Bride is a delicious treat.  Sammi Jo and Jackson are hilarious and their chemistry is blistering.

 

“She Don’t Stay The Night” by Anna Meadows

Buckley wondered onto Adabella’s land and became a ranch hand one that Adabella fell in love with.  After years of grooming and dancing around each other they may find happiness.

 

She Don’t Stay The Night is a sweet story but not a favorite of mine.  The novella has emotion but not as much passion.

 

Cowboy Lust is a great compilation of western erotic novellas.  While I didn’t like all of the stories, I enjoyed most of them. The stand outs were definitely Kimber Vale’s Some Like It Dirty, Cheyenne Blue’s Under the Southern Cross and The Ranch Hand by Sedona Fox.
