A deliciously sensual western romance that continues the stories about the hardworking cowboys on the Six Pack Ranch. The desperation that causes Vicki Hansol to look for a way to overcome her phobias makes her brave enough to approach Joel Coleman but her demand that they keep the arrangement a secret leads to inevitable complications. Joel finds a way to pleasurably tutor Vicki in more than the proper frame of mind to deal with horses but one would think that they would be a little more circumspect after being caught in a compromising position more than once! The sizzling lessons that the sexy cowboy undertakes certainly would take one’s mind off of anything else but it was disappointing to see his twin Jesse’s immaturity and I look forward to seeing him become a more worthwhile adult. This spicy story was a fun read and I am delighted to have found a new author to follow and will be looking for the earlier tales centering around the Six Pack Ranch.
“Rocky Mountain Rebel” by Vivian Arend is Book 5 in the ‘Six Pack Ranch’ series and features twin Joel Coleman who is finally ready to take a slightly different path than his brother Jesse. Feisty Vicki Hansol knows all about trying to fight against preconceptions and live her life differently from the rest of her family but she never expects the changes that will accompany her quest to become comfortable around horses so that she can apply for a job which may be her way to escape the rut she is in. Joel is astounded to realize the number of ways he can tutor the innocent but prickly woman but his interest in her is complicated by his family and all of the barriers that Vicki has developed in self-defense. Fortunately, neither is a quitter.
The best type of growing up involves getting down and dirty.
Vicki Hansol made different choices than her less-than-reputable mom and sister, yet her fiery temper has left her branded with the same town-bad-girl label. When she desperately needs a change of scenery, her get-out-of-town-free ticket arrives—and requires she face down one of her deepest fears.
Easygoing Joel Coleman has nothing to complain about, but he’s never really done anything to brag about either. The youngest member of the Six Pack Ranch is looking to make some changes in his life that include stepping out from under his twin brother’s shadow.
So when the bold beauty with the smart mouth approaches him with a proposition, Joel is intrigued. Her request for him to teach her to ride soon takes on a whole new meaning. All that passion in his arms, his bed, in the barn…hell, anywhere he can get it? Bring it on.
But tangling the sheets leads to unanticipated complications, and by the time the dust settles, everything family means is going to be challenged.
Warning: Saddle up for some youthful vigor applied with great enthusiasm. Ropes, rails and raunchy sex—there’s more places to get dirty around the ranch than first meets the eye.
