Now the only problem is which one will I read first!!!
Tuesday, June 30, 2009
Channing Kinkaid itches for a change; a wild western adventure with an untamed man. Determined to shed her inhibitions and embrace the steamier, seamier side of life, she sets her sights on hooking up with a real chaps-and-spurs-wearing cowboy.
Enter Colby McKay—bull rider, saddle bronc buster and calf roper. From the moment he sets lust-filled eyes on the sweet and fiery Channing, he knows he's found the woman who's up to the challenge of cutting loose. What rough and rowdy cowboy could resist a no-holds-barred sexual romp with a sassy young thing starring as his personal buckle bunny?
Intrigued by Channing's bold proposition of horsing around on the road, Colby impulsively sweetens the deal; sexual escapades not only in his bed, but in the bedrolls of his rodeo traveling partners, Trevor and Edgard.
Although Channing's secretly longed to be the sole focus of more than one man's passions, Colby's demand for complete submission behind closed doors will test her willful nature.
Can Channing give up total control? Especially when not all is as it seems with the sexy trio? Or will the cowboys have to break out the bullropes and piggin' string to break in this headstrong filly?
Warning: This title contains the following: lots of explicit sex, going strong long after the cows come home, graphic language that'd make your mama blush, light bondage with bullropes, ménage a trois, and – yee-haw! – hot nekkid cowboy man-love.

Series: Devinity Warriors Book 2
Author: Michelle M. Pillow
Blurb: The second Divinity Warriors book, set in the Divinity Universe.
Jayne Hart has earned her independence by becoming Divinity Corporation’s inter-dimensional boxing champion. Life is great, until a dirty fighter knocks her unconscious. Now, abandoned by the corporation in a parallel world, Jayne will use every weapon she has to be free once more. Even if it means running from her sexy new “husband” and spending the rest of her life in a primitive forest.
Ronen of Firewall longs for a woman to warm his bed and his home, but he had no intention of choosing a bride. In an unprecedented move, one chooses him. Never in the history of the breeding ceremony has a woman dared to lay claim. How can he resist the alluring Lady Jayne? She’s confident and sure in her decision to be with him—until their wedding night when she’s nowhere to be found. But Ronen is not one to shy from a battle. He will find Jayne and when he does, he has one particular “weapon” in mind for taming his seductive, wayward wife.
What worked for me: I love her ability to blend the stories in her series. She did it with Dragon Lord and Lords of the Var, she does it in the Divinty Warriors as well. Plus she writes heroines I can get behind, no simpering TSTL women for Ms. Pillow. Jayne is tough physically, but underneath she is vulnerable and believable. I really liked her and was anxious for her to find her HEA with Ronen.

This months Reread goes out to Nath, she along with the reread challenge exposed me to Robyn Carr and now I am hooked. I love Virgin River and I can't wait to read the next books in the fabulous town.
WANTED: Midwife/nurse practitioner in Virgin River, population six hundred. Make a difference against a backdrop of towering California redwoods and crystal-clear rivers. Rent-free cabin included.
When the recently widowed Melinda Monroe sees this ad she quickly decides that the remote mountain town of Virgin River might be the perfect place to escape her heartache, and to re-energize the nursing career she loves. But her high hopes are dashed within an hour of arriving: the cabin is a dump, the roads are treacherous and the local doctor wants nothing to do with her. Realizing she's made a huge mistake, Mel decides to leave town the following morning.
But a tiny baby, abandoned on a front porch, changes her plans...and a former marine cements them into place.
Melinda Monroe may have come to Virgin River looking for escape, but instead she finds her home.
I love this series, I actually reread the whole set this month. I couldn't get into reading this month, so I found comfort revisiting this small town and rediscovering Mel and Jack. Two people, survivors who rose above all they lost, what more could you ask for in a hero and heroine. Jack the tough ex-Marine who makes sure he watches over the small town just like he watched over his men in battle. He's a true hero, yet he vulnerable and surprisingly tender with Mel. And Mel she's so strong yet she doesn't see it. She walked away from all she knew, took a huge risk and found the love was still in the cards for her.
But VIRGIN RIVER is more than just Jack and Melinda's story, it the basis for a world, a town that I've come to love. From Preacher and Paige to Rick and Lizzie there isn't anyone I'm not happy to see each time I return to the river. Jack and Mel may have started it all and for that they'll always hold a special place in my heart, but it's the town and it's people that having me coming back time and again.
