Recommends it for: Fans of contemporary (mild) erotic romance
This was a well-written, easy read, featuring easy to like characters...not over-the-top erotic, but with plenty of teasing, flirting, and racy dialogue. The H/H don't actually become intimate until late in the book, but there's plenty of sexual tension and 'almost' moments leading up to it.

Rebecca Ryder is a recent widow, her husband dying rather suddenly and at a fairly young age. She misses him terribly, but feels it might be time to move on with her life. To help her transition into the dati

One of the better Girl Bits books I've read in a while. High on the angst, and while the rule is NO Sex, you know it's going there since it's from Siren...which also means once there, there is a ton of it.

The sexual tension was great, and I liked that both MCs weren't willing to give up their ghosts without a fight (even though the story spans a mere week).

If you don't mind Girl Bits and have a thing for cowboys, then go for it. Plus the sequel involves sexy brother Garrett and sexy cowboy Clay

Fantasy Ranch where there are only 2 simple rules to follow.

Rule 1 - No Sex

Rule 2 - No contact or attempted contact after the week is up

For Rebecca Ryder the rules for Fantasy Ranch seem simple enough. A year after her husband Todd's sudden death Rebecca is attempting to get back out and date. Before she is ready to date again Rebecca wants to live out the fantasy that her late husband had promised. They'd had a great sex life that had included lots of role playing and on that last day he had pr

I, for one, loved Cowboy Games, because let's face it, who doesn't love a sexy cowboy, and Gavin Carter is one of the sexiest. He also operates Fantasy Ranch, every female's idea of a dream vacation. For seven days, the guests at Fantasy Ranch are treated like royalty by their gorgeous cowboy. Of course, there's a catch--two small rules that are not negotiable:


No sex.
No contact or attempted contact after the week is up.
Rebecca Ryder lost her husband a year ago and is still mourning his death. T

What I Loved: Both main character in this book: Gavin and Rebecca! Rebecca had so many qualities, fears, feelings, and actions that I believe many women have. She was in a time of transition and her story was just so well told. Gavin read like a real guy, that you could meet, fall in love with, and yes fantasize about when you aren't around him. I like that he had issues he had to work through too. It kind made the balance between them good to read. Oh

I love a good cowboy romance and Wendi Darlin delivers an exciting and original erotic treat with Cowboy Games and other titles, such as five-star and short menage Hired Hands. I enjoyed the characters relationship as well as their emotional dilemnas outside their intriguing physical relationship. I also fell in love with the hero, Gavin. I definitely recommend this book to erotic romance fans as well as any other Wendi Darlin title.

I loved this book! Gavin and Rebecca are amazing. This story swept me away. I read it almost completely in one night and finished up in the morning. Wendi's writing is so easy to read. I completely fell into the story.. AMAZING
