Oh my god Desiree Holt has another stupendous hit at Wilder Rose Press. I loved the whole book from the first chapter till the end. This story grips your attention. Zane is definitely all man in this book and I loved that Jamie didn’t fall helpless into his arms. The fights between them are great but man watch out with the bed scenes – they sizzle. If there’s one book you need to read from Desiree that will get you going and wish for your own law officer then Zane and Cocked and Loaded are for you. Wowza.

When Jamie Randall kicked the dust of Amen, Texas from her heels, she swore neither the town nor the bad boy she'd given her virginity to would ever see her again. Yet here she is, returning under a cloud of disgrace, not a penny to her name or a soul to welcome her--least of all the sheriff.
Jamie Randall—a decade hadn’t lessened the bitter taste of her name. Zane Cameron had only been good enough for sultry summer sex. But the local hell-raiser is the sheriff now and determined to run her hot little body off the worthless piece of land her father left her and right out of his sleepy little town. Just as soon as he scratches a twelve-year-old itch.
Explosive passion changes Zane’s mind, but before they can explore their feelings, strange events threaten Jamie and it becomes obvious someone else wants her out of the way. Dirty money, cold-blooded murder, and deadly secrets interfere with Zane’s plans to convince Jamie to give him a second chance.
