I love cowboys in Romancelandia. I have yet to meet one in real life that lives up to his fictional counterparts, but I don't let that ruin my fantasy. :)

Colt Tanner loves and lives for the Lonestar Ranch and has always believed he'd eventually inherit his uncle's half of the ranch and become its sole owner. But when the time comes, he's surprised to find out that his uncle has left his half of the ranch to someone else - his widow - who in turn gives it to her niece, Elise Hamilton. Colt offers

This is the second book in the Bad In Boots series by Patrice Michelle. I hadn't even heard of this series or author before until I came across this book at a used book store. The summary sounded fun and thought this would make a quick read to pass some time at night. Needless to say, my night went without sleep and I fantasized about cowboys more than I should have.

I know it is hard to read about the highly coveted cowboy that sweeps you off your feet. The author did make her cowboys to be bett

Another gorgeous cowboy! I enjoyed Colt's story more than Hunger and Temptation probably because it was a full length novel and had time to develop the plot better. Does anyone know if she will be writing Cade's and Mace's stories?

This one was a bit longer than the previous two in the series and it definitely showed.  I was able to see more development in the relationship.  Great sex scenes, and the chemistry between Colt and Elise was sweet.  I liked the dominance he held over her, making her place beside him.  This one was definitely my favorite in the series.

*The books in the Bad in Boots series can be read as stand-alones, but I would recommend reading them in order.  You have a chance to meet some of the characters i

Very rare you come across a good book while just browsing for another book. Well that is what happened for me. While browsing and checking up on some other books I came across Colt’s Choice. Cover totally caught my eye, then I read the synopsis and sounded interesting, read some reviews all were 5 stars, then to my surprise fell in love with the novel.

Patrice Michelle had me hooked from the beginning with Colt’s, Texan drawl, rough voice calling Elise, “darlin’”. Colt is one bull headed sexy cow

Patrice Michelle knows how to write sexy stubborn alpha cowboys. Every couple in this series has had smoking chemistry between then and Colt and Elise have that in spades.

Colt Tanner took over not only the running of his family’s rodeo ranch when his father died but also helped raised his two younger brothers. He didn’t think twice when he had to give up his own rodeo career to do so. The ranch was owned in equal parts by his father and his uncle and Colt always figured when his uncle passed he

What do a city-slicker and a rodeo cowboy have in common? Uh...nothing, right? Not really.

When Elise Hamilton shows up on Colt's ranch, he discovers that she's his silent partner.

Inheriting half of the rodeo ranch had been unexpected for Elise but she couldn't sell.

Determined to prove Colt wrong, to show him that she had just as much right, just as much grit, just as much determination than any small-town country bumpkin, she sets forth to learn the ways of the ranch. Yeah, that also meant mucki

This book was absolutely amazing, everything about it fitted perfectly, from the story flow to the gorgeous cowboy and his beautiful business partner!!!
The ranch belonged to Colt's dad and his uncle 50/50. Following the death of his father, Colt recieved his half. His uncle gave his wife the half he owned who then gave it to her neice, Elise. So now Colt and Elise are business partners... With one hell of an attraction, that you could feel through the pages!!!

Patrice Michelle writes a well woven tale in this rugged prideful cowboy meets spoiled rich society girl romance. Elise Hamilton was certainly a surprising character by giving up all things spoiled with money and crass society ways for an amazing landscape and harsh realities of ranch life. Colt Tanner defines a rugged cowboy who doesn't rest until all the work is done on the ranch and is stubborn as a mule when it comes to admitting his feelings for the high society gal. Fast paced reading for ...more

Story and Writing Style
The story is fairly common: sexy, independent heroine inherits one half of a property, and the rugged, stubborn man is left standing dazed and confused as to how and why that happened. It was a cute contemporary western. The story progressed well, even if the writing seemed a little choppy and amateurish.

Surprisingly deep for a “little” story like this. Colt and Elise were a fine match resembling the odd couple—Colt’s country ways battling with Elise’s fiery Eas

Elise is likable and it takes awhile to warm up to Colt. I do have to say, Colt pulled out all the stops and sure surprises Elise during the fund raiser.
The best scenes are with Colt's youngest brother, Mace. Mace is just such a fun,loving,sexy cowboy. Sure hope he gets his own book in this series.
I rated this 4 stars, but it really is a 3.75.
Even though this is listed as #3 in this Series, there really is not much of a connection
at all to the first two books, which was disappointing.

This book is absolutely fabulous cowboy read by Patrice Michelle! Read this one and too HARM'S HUNGER which I believe is first in this series. I am one who really enjoys cowboy stories and each one by Ms. Michelle's I get immediately! I got this in ebook when it came out and got in print and re-read and it remains on my keepers shelf to pull out anytime to read again and again. Too her vampire books are awesome too! So I won't repeat the blurb, but Colt is yummy!

This was the best book I've read in a long while. It had a level of romance that I haven't read in a long time. The characters both had great strengths with a realistic plot.

I am now going to be searching out the other two in the series. I hope that they can compare to this one. I'm also hoping the siblings get their own story. I highly recommend this book.
Wow, a great story with strong characters. I love this type of book and it didn't leave me lacking. While I enjoy love at first sight I don't want wishy washy or push over characters. This was strong people learning to let someone in and fighting for what they want. I immediately started looking for more books by this author.

This book is definetly my fave book of the series so far.

Colt is a sexy, stubborn alpha cowboy.

His and Elise have amazing chemistry and how they're relationship evolves and how they figure everything out.

Almost 4 stars but...

The last inning (as in baseball) was a total strikeout. Overall I enjoyed this story although it wasn't as good as Book 1, it was better than Book 2. The ending became cliche and that's what made the book loose a star.

I loved this series... Elise tries to make the best of things but honestly Colt. You want to drop kick his alpha stubborn butt clear across the ranch.
Read the series. It's steamy, written well and it's a keeper.
Colt's Choice was, plain and simple, boring. The characters were one dimensional and had no personality. The H/h had zero chemistry and the conflict between the two got old very quickly. Hunger and Temptation was the much better book.
