Where There's Smoke: Becky McGraw
It's been a while since the last time I read a Becky McGraw book, but what I did remember of them was that they were hot. And she does not disappoint in Where's There Smoke. The hero and heroine start out at cross purposes from the very beginning, with our heroine trudging across a ranch yard in a suit and fireman's boots, and Austin dealing with a ranch hand who had been gored by a bull. Think about that for a minute and see what images it conjures. The entire b

Received ARC Copy of COME HELL OR HIGH WATER by the author Sabrina York for honest review

If a romance story makes me smile while reading it, it gets 5 Stars, and Sabrina York's smexxy cowboy tale did just that!

Cade Silver has had a crush on Lisa Binder since high school. When he sees that she's back in town, he is determined to win her heart. Lisa Binder is overcoming a bad divorce with a cheating husband and has sworn off relationships. When she meets Cade, she's open to exploring a physi

I was given Sabina York's book in exchange for an honest review and I can only wonder how the other stories are and if it'a as hot as Come Hell or High Water!! Returning to his small town of Snake Gully, Texas, war veteran Cade Silver couldn't believe that the last woman he didn't want to see was walking by his truck! Call him silly, but as he ducked in his truck, he pretended to look foe something so she wouldn't see him. He had served in two wars as a Marine without blinking, yet now he hid fr ...more

I received an ARC of Saddles and Soot from Author Cynthia D'Alba for an honest review.

There is everything right about this book! The author weaves the love story of Tanner. a rancher/firefighter and Georgie, the new vet in town with sizzling hot sexual tension, heartbreaking angst and just the right amount of humor. You will want to shake Tanner to wake him up to see what he is missing and then hug him when he stands up for Georgie. Then there is Georgie, she's had her heart broken before and no

Well, it finally happened. I read every story in an anthology, this anthology. I not only read all of the contributions, but I liked them all. I even went and purchased books by some of the authors. For the honesty portion--I purchased this for the books by Becky McGraw and Donna Michaels. I have read and re-read everything by these ladies. If you have never read anything by them: spend the dollar now. You won't regret it. The collection was a super steal for just their contributions, but it was ...more

I purchased this box set because I love half the authors in the set. By the end of the set I loved them all. Cowboys who fight fire and can start a fire in every reader. Each book is different and you wont want to leave once you get into the set. Took me a week to read, did not want to miss once minute of the action and some wonderful suspense. If you have not read these authors before and want a taste of their work this is a wonderful box set to start with. Every author brings you into the stor ...more

AFTER THE FIRE by Cora Seton ////
Set in the Chance Creek universe, After the Fire features firefighter Adam Carter and the unforgettable Brynn Price nee Nelson. Though they shared just one date back when they were teens, Adam has never been able to completely get Brynn off his radar. He also can't understand why she stays with her deadbeat husband.

After the Fire is a great, page-turning read. I definitely look forward to diving into the Chance Creek series!

I have had the chance to read three of the stories in the 12 Alarm Cowboys boxed set. Oh my goodness if the rest of the set is as awesome as these three, well this is a must have set!

Cowboy's Match is the first chance I have had to read anything by Lexi Post. Oh my goodness this lady can write a hot story! This may be my first taste of her work but it most certainly will not be my last!

Lacey Winters has been through a lot. She has not had an easy life and has suffered a lot of heartache. She ha

A collection of mostly new-to-me authors. Enjoyed most of the stories but found that a few were more insta-sex than insta-love and, as a result, there wasn't much character development in those stories. However, all were a fairly quick read. ...more

Hot firemen cowboys

This is a great collection about hot firemen cowboys and the women they rescue. Each book is a standalone but many are part of a series. I enjoyed every single one.

12-ALARM COWBOYS by the Cowboy Twelve Pack authors is an amazing collection of stories by an awesome group of talented authors. Highly recommend to all fans of hot cowboys, firefighters, and romance.

'After The Fire' by Cora Seton is a great read. I enjoyed reading about Brynn and Adam. I wouldn't mind reading more about them in the future! I'm definitely going to check out the other books set in Chance Creek.

Texas Wildfire by Sable Hunter:
Sable Hunter always has a way of pulling me in from the very first page, and this little book was no exception. Titan has loved Makenna, from the first moment he saw her, but because she is the wife of the Captain of the volunteer fire department, he has never acted on it. Makenna, a sweet soul that has not had a happy life. She suffered a horrific tragedy in her childhood, only to get married to a sorry excuse for a man, and suffer unmentionable things in her adul

This is a beautiful story of giving trust even when you have no reason to but just going with your gut and your heart. Kinsey Phillips is running away from her abusive ex-boyfriend who used to beat her whenever he felt like it. She just made a run because things were getting too rough.

Awesome collection of books. I read Hellfire, Texas by Elle James.
Kinsey Phillips is running as fast and as far as she can from an abusive relationship. In doing so she goes to the only place she knows. Home. She hadn't been there since her parents passed away. There was no one now. No one to miss her or help her if she needed help. The abuse came swift and packed with a punch. Coming home was more about her memories than anything else because she hadn't seen or heard from anyone in years.

Wonderful Story by Sabrina York

I bought this box set specifically to read Come Hell or High Water by Sabrina York. It was a fantastic story. An ex-military war hero comes home to help out on his family ranch. Only the family ranch has been turned into a working ranch during the day and male strip club on the weekend nights. Hooboy! Plus his high school crush, who unbeknownst to her broke his heart, just got back in town. She never noticed him in high school, not when his handsome brother was aro

I purchased this set but so far I've only had a chance to read one story: Hellfire Texas by Elle James

Kinsey Phillips is running away from an abusive relationship. Her car catches on fire and Becket Grayson gets her away from it before it explodes. They realize that they know each other from growing up together many years ago. The attraction between Kinsey and Becket can’t be denied even though neither of them is looking for a relationship.

This book has a lot of suspense and kept me on the edge

FANTASTIC collection from 12 very talented writers!!

I'm a fan of some of the contributors to this collection and couldn't wait to get my hands on it, and ALL the authors definitely came through with stories that are HOT, but are also filled with a great deal of emotion. They not only provided plenty of sizzle, but mystery and intrigue as well, which kept me interested and absorbed through each story. The only thing that kept me from reading straight through from beginning to end was the need to

Buy this now!!!!!

I'd read some other books by some of these authors and some of the authors I'd never really read, but now I can say I'm a fan of each and every one of them!

Each story gave me something different, but they played off each other so well. The writing styles meshed well together and you get a good mix of hot romance to scorching heat throughout the stories. I loved each story for different reasons and will probably put this in my favorite collection so I can read it again.
