Sometimes a book delivers all the elements that I adore and such was the case with Branded by Laura Wright. I accepted the book for review after reading the synopsis and discovering it was a series involving brothers. Branded is the first in the Cavanaugh Brothers series a contemporary romance series set in the small town of River Black, Texas at the Triple C cattle ranch. Wright delivered a hot tale, fleshed out characters, a decade old mystery and family secrets..Yeehaa!
Big Sky Secrets is the sixth and final book in the Parable, Montana series (previously named Swoon-worthy Cowboys) by Linda Leal Miller. I have enjoyed the journey, and hope we will one day get to visit Parable and its inhabitants again. This tale belongs to Landry Sutton and Ria Manning. This was one of my favorites as these two strong, flawed characters healed and found their slice of happy. Mini review: sweet, hot and thoroughly entertaining
Early this year I read and enjoyed the first book in the Cowboys & Bride series, Billion Dollar Cowboy, by Carolyn Brown. I was excited to see the release of The Cowboy’s Christmas Baby. This time she brings us a yummy rancher who has just finished a tour in Kuwait, and the sassy woman he has been chatting with for the last eleven months. Filled with memorable characters, a friendship to lover’s romance and the joy of the season. Mini review: sweet, humorous and romantic.
One of my favorite genres is romantic suspense and when you add a smexy, drop dead gorgeous cowboy, this little woman is a happy reader. I read Dani @ Paulette’s Papers review of Running Wild where she declared she was reading this over and over! *Naturally I bought it!* Howard and Jones provided me with a suspenseful thriller and a delicious romance. I literally consumed this full size novel in one sitting. Three word review: suspenseful, smexy and colorful.
Kat Martin always entertains me with her ex-military alpha males and the woman who finally win their playboy hearts. Against the Odds is the seventh book from the Raines of Wind Canyon series but don’t let that scare you as each works as a standalone. In this novel we get smexy Alex Justice story and a side story regarding his sister and a totally lovable carpenter. Filled with action, suspense and a hot sizzling romance with just enough heat I quickly consumed this.
Big Sky Mountain is the second novel, in Linda Leal Miller’s, Swoon-Worthy Cowboys series. We find ourselves back in Parable, Montana. This time she shares Hutch and Kendra’ tale. This was a funny, sweet, small town romance. I enjoyed visiting Parable again and the characters who reside there. Each of these novels can be read as a standalone, but I like getting to know all of the characters and recommend reading them in order.
