Wow!!! What a great collection of stories. I couldn’t find a single one that I didn’t love. From contemporary to historical, each was perfect and a terrific way to find some new authors to read. I knew this was a book I had to pick up when I saw Delilah Devlin did the editing and Lorelei James did the intro. These are two of my favorite authors and I knew they wouldn’t steer me wrong, and they didn’t.
Weather the stories were a few pages or several, each grab my imagination and attention. Some were too short and I wanted more while others gave me a complete story. None were ever remotely alike and this uniqueness was a terrific way to highlight each story’s strengths.
If you like western romance, pick up this book. If you’ve never read it and just want to be introduced to some hot sexy cowboys, pick up this book. I can’t imagine anyone who reads romance who wouldn’t find at least a story or two to love out of this book though I expect that most will love all of them. After all, what isn’t to like when you’re presented with a hot sexy cowboy, some great sex and you get to travel lots of places without leaving home.
These cowboys ride hard...
There's a reason Western romance novels never go out of fashion. The cowboy is an iconic figure embodying the dichotomy of the fiercely independent, earthy alpha male crossed with the male as a nurturer and protector. Cowboys take care of their women in every possible way. Wild and wayward women are gentled by the scent of horse and cow and the sight of sun-kissed skin, the feel of work-hardened thighs and arms, and the sound of a deep-voiced Texas drawl.
Contributors at the top of the Western romance genre, including Charlene Teglia, Randi Alexander, Cat Johnson, and editor, Delilah Devlin, have corralled strong and memorable characters ranging from ranch hands to cattle barons, to a rodeo star and a feisty female gunslinger. Traversing romantic settings from Montana, Texas, California, Mexico, and the Outback of Australia, the stories in Cowboy Lust are risky and risqué, full of studs in spurs hot enough to send you to a vacation on a dude ranch!
