Strong, Silent Type (Rough Riders #6.5)
Tough. Taciturn. And a fool for letting her go-
A Wild Ride story.
Wyoming rancher Quinn McKay thought he-d only have to bide time until his levelheaded wife came to her senses and called a halt to this -trial separation-. He never believed the marital rough patch would drag on for a coon-s age.

Strong, Silent Type is a short story about Quinn and Libby McKay, whose marriage is falling apart. I read it out of order, so I don’t know how much of the build up to the deterioration of their relationship I might have missed, but it didn’t feel as if I had missed much, if anything, at all. Reading this story out of order, if you choose to do so, shouldn't be a problem.
Quinn is one of those guys that drive us women crazy. He’s an intense man, but keeps his thoughts and emotions bottled up insid...more

Though this is fiction, Ms James was able to tell a story of a long-time married couple's relationship and how s...more
I'm not quite sure why they called this a short story, because I will tell you that nothing about this read was short or condensed in any way. The fact that these characters were married already, allowed the read to be shortened in length only and cut out the initial courtship, BUT I can only say that there's no denying this was a Rough Rider child and that this read was good, smokin' hot and was an important part of the Rough Riders series as a whole, that should n...more

After that it goes downhill until Quinn decides to fight for his wife and their love. Quinn wants her back and his brother advises him to woo her.

This one is Merle Haggard's "If We're Not Back In Love By Monday." It's a marriage reconciliation story.
My favorite bit, after describing the heroine's makeover and the hero's bafflement by it:
At that point he'd begun to worry, wondering if she'd met a man she was trying to impress....more
When Libby asked him how he liked the "new" her, Quinn replied honestly: He'd liked the old her just fine.

I’m disappointed because this couple was only maintained passing in a couple of books and now they only get a novella to solve their problems. This was not enough for me and I want more form Quinn and Libby.
She’s sweet and a great housewife, but is unhappy with her marriage and feels like a failure because she can’t get pregnant, so the relationship is hanging by a breath. I liked Quinn but he needed to be more upfront with his feelings and desires...more

The worst part of the Rough Rider series is that every story whether it is a full novel or a brief novella such as this one. It has you wondering if it is your favorite of your series.

One area they definitely find their way back to is that old fashioned male to female communication with their bodies. The sex is hot and the issues rea...more
