Nicole Austin – Scandalous

{November 2, 2007}   Rode Hard, Put Up Wet by Lorelei James


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.

Warning: this book contains: explicit sex nine ways ‘til Sunday – including ménage a trois, inventive use of ropes, naughty girls getting spanked, stubborn men getting hog-tied, graphic language and whoo-wee! hot nekkid cowboy on cowboy action.

Nic’s Recommendation:

Whew! Things just heated up around here too. Nobody does smokin’ hot Westerns like Ms. James. Be forewarned! Ice and fans are necessary when reading this book. Gemma and Cash create some major heat. Add in Macie and Carter and things go beyond thermonuclear. I now know what’s fueling the global warming trend!

The characters are compelling, drawing the reader into their lives within moments of picking up the book. Their struggles and triumphs will take you on heck of a fun roller coaster ride, leaving you satisfied with the turning of the last page.  

Rode Hard, Put Up Wet is available from Samhain Publishing. If you didn’t read Long Hard Ride, or any of Ms. James’ other books, trust me—pick them all up! I can’t recommend this fabulous author highly enough.
