Publisher:  Total E-Bound

Doctors Sam Browning and Isaac Singer opened the Cattle Valley Medical Clinic when they were both fresh out of medical school. It was the best thing they ever did, other than loving each other for more than twenty-five years. They’ve enjoyed a thriving practice and an even better sex life, but lately routine has started to set in.
With the growth of the town, the doctors decide it’s time for the clinic to hire a physical therapist. They thought hiring Matt Jeffries over the phone and offering him the use of their garage apartment was the smart thing to do. That is until Matt shows up, suitcases in hand. Three months after returning from the war in Iraq, Matt has bigger problems than his attraction to two gorgeous older men. Night sweats and flashbacks are keeping him locked in his own shell.
Can these two doctors offer the physical therapist a little therapy of their own?

Comfortable with his bi-sexuality, cowboy Chase Reynolds wants a home, but there's a catch. His ideal scenario features a wife…and a husband.

For rancher, Ezra James, life is pretty simple. He wakes before dawn and spends his day working with the cattle he loves. For twenty years, the EZ Does It ranch has been enough to drown out his loneliness and guilt. To the world, he appears impervious to everything. The only chink in his armour—the man who owns the clothing store in town.
Palmer “Wyn” Wynfield caught Ezra’s eye the first time the rancher stepped foot in the store. Though Ezra knew his large size intimidated others, his little self-confidence was shattered when Palmer backed away in apparent fear. In a moment of self-preservation, he referred to Wyn as Mr. Fancy Pants. That was six years ago, and he’s never been forgiven.
An early morning phone call changes all that. Though the line is scratchy, Ezra definitely hears the words he’s been waiting to hear for years. “I need you.”

Along with his brother, Gavin Carter owns Fantasy Ranch. This private resort in Wyoming allows guests to pay for their fantasy of a week of cowboy love.

Rebecca Ryder's husband died before he could give her the fantasy of loving a cowboy. So she decides to head to Fantasy Ranch to fulfill this particular fantasy.

The contract signed before arrival states a couple of basic rules; no sex and no contact after your fantasy week is over. Of course, Rebecca doesn't think she'll have a problem with either rule and neither does Gavin. But once they meet, all bets are off on following rules.

Cowboy Games is scorching hot story. Wendi Darlin writes steamy sex scenes and amazing sexual tension that's off the charts. Gavin is nothing but sexy and a total fantasy cowboy. I cried from the very first pages with the loss of Rebecca's husband and throughout to her discovery of loving another man. They were perfect for each other. I look forward to the next installment in the Cowboy Games series.

The Tycoon's Pregnant Mistress by Maya Banks

The Tycoon's Pregnant Mistress by Maya Banks (The Anetakis Tycoons series book 1)

ISBN: 9780373769209 (#1920) Silhouette Desire


Author's Website: http://www.mayabanks.com/

Marley Jameson arrives home after learning she was pregnant, only to be accused by her lover Chrysander Anetakis of stealing company secrets. He throws her out of the apartment they've shared. After leaving the building, she's abducted.

A few months down the road, hotel mogul Chrysander Anetakis learns his former lover has been hospitalized after her kidnapping, is five months pregnant and has amnesia. Not even remembering him, he tells her they're engaged and brings her home with him. He quickly whisks her away to his Greek island to wait for the birth of their baby. But what will happen if Marley's memory returns?

Let me say, I adore Maya Banks books. This is her first Desire book and she did a great job. Chrysander was a jerk through most of the book but he redeems himself in the end. Marley is a totally sympathetic character and even though she has amnesia throughout the majority of the book, she still has spunk and keeps Chrysander on his toes. It's not the spicy Maya Banks everyone is used to but I still recommend this read and look forward to the next two books in this series.
