Vince Durant returns to his hometown of Bickford, Texas determined to do the two things he never did before he left, catch the wild stallion called Ghost and convince Georgina Bickford she should go out with him.  Georgina has always stayed in Bickford, determined to keep her store open even as the small town seems to be dying around her. When Vince arrives he finds himself being drawn into the effort of keeping Bickford alive. As Georgina and Vince work together they begin to fall in love. But Vince has no intention of staying and Georgina will never leave Bickford. Can they save the town they both love and find a way to stay together?

 

Crazy for the Cowboy by Vicki Lewis Thompson started off a little slow so I had a hard time really getting into it at the beginning. But as I got further and further in I found myself falling in love with Bickford and with Vince and Georgie. I was cheering for them to find a way to save this small town and for Vince to figure out that Georgie was the home he didn’t know he was looking for. This sweet romance is a hidden gem that is perfect for readers looking for that feel good moment!

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.
