Torn between the love he has-and the love he's always wanted. A Rough Riders book. Chassie West Glanzer hasn't been a stranger to drama and tragedy. A year of wedded bliss to sexy-as-sin cowboy Trevor Glanzer has brought her the happiness and contentment she never thought she'd find, and mellowed Trevor's rodeo wanderlust. Then Trevors old roping partner ambles up the driveway and Chassie's life changes drastically. Trevor never expected to see Edgard Mancuso again, after it became clear he couldn't be the man Edgard needed. Now Edgard is back from Brazil to sort out their tangled past, and Trevor is plagued with feelings he thought he'd buried over three years ago. Although Trevor is hat-over-bootheels in love with his sweet, feisty wife, the sense his life is missing a piece has always gnawed at him. Chassie's shock that Edgard and Trevor were once lovers turns to fear of losing her husband. Or worse, fear that Trevor will stay with her only out of a sense of duty. Yet as the three of them spend time together, the sins of the past blur and fade, leaving raw emotion and unbridled passion. Passion that could heal-or cause irreparable damage to their future. Warning: this book contains unbelievably explicit sex, including multiple cowboy/cowgirl/cowboy menage scenes, juicy, hot, male on male action, a bucketful of politically incorrect situations and true Western ideology.

 If I hadn't read about Trevor and Edgard in the first book of the series then maybe I would have felt a little different than I do. I feel the real love story was between Trevor and Edgard with Chassie has a second love in Trevor's life at some points it was hard for me to believe that Trevor felt so strong for Chassie it didn't feel has strong as what he feels for Edgard. I also thought that the love story between Chassie and Edgard was very underdeveloped. I felt a connection between the two just not very strong. I still feel with that being said that it was a good book and a fun, sexy read and as in all the books there's hot sex and steamy touches.

...The strongest bonds are the ones unseen.

Businesswoman Skylar Ellison is firmly in control of her life. So getting tangled up with a sexy Wyoming cowboy—and conceiving a baby in the parking lot of a honky-tonk—wasn’t in her plan. Since it appears the daddy has taken off for greener pastures, the only thing to do is pull up her bootstraps and carry on alone.

Cattle rancher Kade McKay returns home after a year on the range, and is knocked for a loop when he learns he’s the father of a three-month-old baby girl. When Skylar refuses to marry him, Kade grits his teeth, moves in and plays house by her rules to prove he’s a man in for the long haul.

Despite Skylar’s insistence they are to remain strictly parenting partners, their old passions flare hot as a brush fire, spurring Kade to demand absolute sexual surrender from the headstrong woman. Skylar willingly submits her body to the hot-blooded cowboy but she’s leery of handing Kade the reins to her heart.

Can Kade convince Skylar the wicked sex games aren’t a temporary distraction? Or will he have to bust out the ropes to show her he wants to be tied to her…forever?

After a lie that has Kade leaving town for several months for family business he comes back to hear he was a little baby daughter (and in the McKay family that is rare). Skylar is upset with Kade but that changes after she sees him with his daughter. Kade not only wants in his daughters life he wants in Skylar's life in a permit way but convincing control freak Skylar is going to be hard but a McKay male is always up for a challenge. If anyone can make control freak Skylar loss control it's Kade with is smoldering kisses and hot touches. Reading about Kade with Elise his daughter is such sweet and touching moments. Skylar is slow to see that Kade isn't like any man she was ever know and give him a chance but she does come around. I think this is one of my favorite books of the series.

Goody-two boots AJ Foster has waited her entire life for her dream cowboy Cord McKay to see her as more than the neighbor girl in pigtails. Now that she’s old enough to stake her claim on him, she’s pulling out all the sexual stops and riding hell-bent for leather—straight for his libido.

Divorced rancher Cord has sworn off all women…until innocent AJ suggests he teach her how to ride bareback—and he realizes she doesn’t mean horses or bulls. Between his responsibilities running his massive ranch, missing his young son and dealing with the sexual shenanigans of his brother and cousins, Cord is more than willing to take AJ up on her offer. On a trial basis.

The fun and games tie them both up in knots. AJ isn’t willing to settle for less than the whole shootin’ match with her western knight. But for Cord, even though the sexy cowgirl sets his blood ablaze, he’s determined to resist her efforts to lasso his battered heart.

Sweet, determined AJ has the power to heal—or heel—the gruff cowboy…unless Cord’s pride keeps him from admitting their relationship is more than a simple roll in the hay.

I love a good story about when a good girl goes bad to get the man she wants. When Cord sees AJ in a bar and realizes that the little girl has grown up he wants her. After AJ makes a offer Cord can't refuse he sets out to show her every kinky thing he knows about sex and how to ride a cowboy. This is another great addition to the Rough Riders series. AJ's sweetness made me like her from the start and Cord being burned by love makes you want him healed and loved well.

Workin up a hot, sticky sweat is pure pleasure with a hard-ridin cowboy or two. Struggling stock contractor Gemma Jansen swallows her pride and tracks down circuit rider Cash Big Crow to offer him a job managing her ranch. Cash agrees on one condition: theirs won't be strictly a working relationship. She's the boss during the day, but once she's corralled in the bedroom, Cash calls the shots. Despite concerns about their age difference, Gemma consents. Cash suspects the sexy widow hides an untapped wild streak. He intends to loosen her tightly held reins of control even if he has to break out his horsewhip to do it. But Cash is in for a surprise. Gemma proves a rough and ready participant in any leather-n-lace game Cash dreams up. Between riding herd on his wayward daughter, Macie, and rowdy cowboy Carter McKay doggin Macie's every boot step, Cash struggles to hide his true feelings for Gemma except this time, Gemma's grabbed the bull by the horns and she's playing for keeps. Summer's going to be a hot one at the Bar 9.

 My only complaint about this book is the describes of the book. This book is more about Macie and Carter with Gemma and Cash as a side story. I was so happy that Cash and Gemma got together after reading about them in the first book. Cash is a retired rodeo cowboy that knows he wants Gemma and finally has the chance to get her when she comes looking for him needing his help. Carter meets Macie at a rodeo then again when she goes with her father Cash to Gemma's ranch. Carter may be a artist but when he sees Macie he's all Mckay about getting what he wants. Carter messes up in a major way but with a little help from his brothers he sets out to get back what he lost.

Channing Kinkaid itches for a wild western adventure with an untamed man. Enter Colby McKay, bull rider, saddle bronc buster and calf roper. He knows he's found a woman who's up to the challenge of cutting loose. Intrigued by Channing's bold proposition to "horse around" on the road, Colby proposes sexual escapades not only in his bed, but in those of his two rodeo traveling partners. Can Channing give up total control? Especially when not all is as it seems with the sexy trio?   

Wow, where to start this is one steaming hot series. I have two warnings about this book. First there is a M/M scene and M/F/M scene's. Second there is more steaming, hot, OMG sex in this book then there is plot so if that bothers you then skip this series and look at something else but if you like smokin hot cowboys that know how to use rope for more than cattle then you found your dream series. Colby proved to be more than a rodeo cowboy looking for a buckle bunny when he finally gets Channing in his bed. The sex was scorching and so was the connection between Colby and Channing. This book is a sex filled love story that leaves a girl wishing for a cowboy !!

Leader of the most powerful army in the heavens, Zacharel has been deemed nearly too dangerous, too ruthless--and if he isn't careful, he'll lose his wings. But this warrior with a heart of ice will not be deterred from his missions at any cost...until a vulnerable human tempts him with a carnal pleasure he's never known before.

Accused of a crime she did not commit, Annabelle Miller has spent four years in an institution for the criminally insane. Demons track her every move, and their king will stop at nothing to have her. Zacharel is her only hope for survival, but is the brutal angel with a touch as hot as hell her salvation--or her ultimate damnation?

 Wicked Nights was one hell of a kick start to the new Angels of the Dark series. I've been curious about Zacharel since we met him in the LOTU series. He had a very mysterious quality to him that made me want to know more. I felt sorry for poor Annabelle from the beginning of the book, talk about a hard life.

Zacharel finds himself drawn to Annabelle from the moment he sees her. This book is filled with twist I didn't see coming with more damaged angels that I can't wait to read about. There is even some Lords and Lady's from the LOTU series in this book. Gena Showalter is a amazing writer and this book is just another example of her talents.

Growing up on the tough Philly streets, Gwen O'Neill has learned how to fend for herself. But what is she supposed to do with a nice, suburban Jersey boy in the form of a massive Grizzly shifter? Especially one with a rather unhealthy fetish for honey, moose, and…uh…well, her. Yet despite his menacing ursine growl and four-inch claws, Gwen finds Lachlan "Lock" MacRyrie cute and really sweet. He actually watches out for her, protects her, and unlike the rest of her out-of-control family manages not to morbidly embarrass her. Too bad cats don't believe in forever.

At nearly seven feet tall, Lock is used to people responding to him in two ways: screaming and running away. Gwen-half lioness, half tigress, all kick-ass-does neither. She's sexy beyond belief and smart as hell, but she's a born protector. Watching out for the family and friends closest to her but missing the fact that she's being stalked by a murderous enemy who doesn't like hybrids…and absolutely hates Gwen. Lock probably shouldn't get involved, but he will. Why? Because this is Gwen-and no matter what the hissing, roaring, drape destroying feline says about not being ready to settle down, Lock knows he can't simply walk away. Not when she's come to mean absolutely everything to him.

If your looking for a fun and sexy read about shifters then Shelly Laurenston is your girl. I laughed so much reading this book. Lock is adorable and sweet looking out for Gwen even when she doesn't want him to. Gwen doesn't want to trust Lock at first but time and help from her friends things change. I love reading this series I hope it never ends it's a fun series that doesn't take itself too serious. If your looking for a fun laugh out loud series about shifters then you found it in this book.
