Welcome to Bent, Wyoming

Where the Wild West Never Died

Resident bad boy and saloon owner Grady Carson knows his brother is not a murderer, and he'll do anything to prove it. But partnering with Laurel Delaney? Worst idea ever. The beautiful by-the-book cop challenges him like no other. Bad family blood--and a killer at large--makes their attraction unthinkable.

So Nicole Helm takes her place with Maisey Yates in the I-read-all-their-books category of my romance reading. And even though I was feeling surfeited? satiated? on Yates-Helm, I can’t resist those Harq romantic suspense covers. It’s too bad that lanky, near-clean-shaven, moderately-good-looking dude on the cover has nothing to do with one of the most marvelous romance heroes I’ve read in ages. Grady Carson is HUGE, broad, bearded, rough, a saloon-owner with dubious liquor-selling practices, who ...more

This is a great romantic suspense with just the right blend of the two elements to keep it exciting and fun to read. There's a mystery to be solved but the feud between the two main families in town could keep everyone from finding the truth. That is unless bad boy Grady Carson and Sheriff Laurel Delaney can put the feud and their sizzling chemistry on the back burner and work together. The first part is easy the second not so much. As these two partner up to find a murderer sparks fly between t ...more
Good book. The ongoing feud between the Carsons and Delaneys ran smack up against a murder investigation when Grady Carson's half-brother was wanted for questioning in the murder of Deputy Laurel Delaney's cousin Jason. Grady was determined to protect his brother, while Laurel just wanted to find the murderer.

I liked both Grady and Laurel. Grady owns the local bar, The Rightful Claim. He's big, tattooed, and has quite the bad boy reputation. Grady is also the de facto head of his family, the one

While it was refreshing to have a hero in the Intrigue line who wasn't a lawman from Texas, and instead a rough-and-tumble saloon owner in Wyoming, this book fell short because I think author Nicole Helm was aiming for a charming rogue, and instead wound up with an insufferable jerk. Grady Carson is certainly physically appealing if his description is anything to go by (big, bearded and tattooed, and clearly nothing like the man on the cover), but I struggled to find much else to like about him. ...more

There is little that intrigues me more, or gets my curiosity engaged as a feud between families that goes on for generations. And that is exactly what we’ll encounter in Wyoming Cowboy Justice as the backdrop to every story in this series – a feud between the Carson family and the Delaney family that has gone on for over a hundred years. Now that’s a long time to hold a grudge, ya know?

The tensions between Grady and Laurel are very real, but not necessarily bas

Laurel Delaney is following a case that ends up chasing after a brother of Grady Carson which doesn't bode well since their family has had this feud. Thing is Laurel will do everything she can a chase after what ever lead she can find and Grady wanting to make sure to prove his brother innocene will aid Laurel but if he's honest there's a bit of an attraction and protective streak that'll leave him trying to help Laurel on her case.

Such a great mystery suspense novel, I really enjoyed it. There

“Wyoming Cowboy Justice” is book one of Nicole Helm’s Carsons and Delaneys miniseries and features Grady Carson and Laurel Delaney.

Grady and Laurel grew up hearing about the feud between their families. They’re not supposed to like each other, yet Grady and Laurel have always “noticed” each other.
The two begrudgingly team up to solve the murder of Laurel’s cousin and clear Grady’s brother.

In “Wyoming Cowboy Justice”, the sexual tension is high, the banter fun. It is also a well-written mystery w

This was the first book by Nicole Helm that I have read, but I did enjoy it. I enjoyed the sparks between the two main characters. It provided good escape after a busy day.

A suspenseful story with two amazing characters that ooze chemistry and all the right feels. Normally Harlequin Intrigue takes a backseat on romance but in this story, it had just the right amount feels that I look for and a mystery that left me waiting hanging until the very end.
