Re~Read Challenge June 2009 ~ Long Hard Ride ~ Lorelei James

One lucky woman…three sexy cowboys…she's in for the ride of her life!

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?

Product Warnings
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.

I knew this month's re-read would be Lorelei James book almost from the start of the month, she had a Novella release today at Samhain that is loosely tied to her Rough Riders Series. So what better book to read then the one that got me hooked on Lorelei's Cowboys.

LONG HARD RIDE is not a book for the faint of heart and although I do love sweet romance their is just something about a book with hot cowboys that makes me a happy girl. Lorelei James writes books grounded in reality. She took her love of PBR (professional bull riding) and mixed it with her no nonsense approach to love. Sure the sex is smokin hot but the core of her books are about finding love, even if it means pushing her characters boundaries and making them take a good hard look at what they really want in life.

Colby McKay is a man who at first glance has it all, a career he loves, friends and family he can rely on and when he wants a woman he only has to reach out and grab one. That is until he crosses paths with the sexy, smart and sassy Channing Kincaid. She's a woman looking to unleash her inner wild child and for her a chance with Colby to experience a no holds barred fling is just want she needs before she returns to the life her family wants her to live. On the surface these two are lovers seeking mutual satisfaction, quickly their connection becomes more and they find themselves falling in love.

Once you look past the heat to the emotions buried in this scorching hot novel, you can truly see the depth of Lorelei's voice and her ability to deliver not only the erotic side of love but the sweet tender sides as well. Without spoiling too much of LONG HARD RIDE, not only do you want Colby and Channing to find HEA, but you can't help but feel that Trevor and Edgard to find their's as well.

LONG HARD RIDE is as good this time as it was the first time and the ROUGH RIDERS is a series I know I will enjoy again and again.
