Jake by Beth Williamson (Devils on Horseback book 2)
Author's Website: http://www.bethwilliamson.com/
Jake Sheridan and the rest of the Devils on Horseback head in to the town of Tanger, Texas. Everyone in town is nervous by the arrival of strangers. Once there, the Devils are hired by the mayor to help rebuild this town that has been destroyed by a band of marauders. They find out that marauders have taken most of the women under 35.
The miller's daughter, Gabrielle Rinaldi, seems to be the only person in town who doesn't want the Devils around. But she's used to no one listening to her. Gabby is a strong woman and single-handedly attempts to run the broken down mill after her father was nearly killed by the marauders. Trust doesn't come easy but Gabby finds herself drawn to a charming Jake.
Jake's heart is lost to Gabby from day one but she tries to hold herself back. She's been through a couple bad relationships and is leery of being hurt again. Would Jake, who's always been considered a thief, steal Gabby's heart without giving anything back in return? But tragedy strikes the town once again and Gabby must help Jake fight to save the town.
I love the Devil's on Horseback. Beth Williamson has created a cast of characters that intrigues you and draws you in to the story. The story is fast paced and keeps you on the edge of your seat. Gabby and Jake are a perfect pair. She was just the type of woman to tame charming Jake. I know I will not be disappointed when I read the next book in the series, Zeke.

Avoiding them is an every day occurance now and several weeks later, Rachel learns after that one night of passion, she's pregnant. This wakes Boone and Chase up and they decide to commit to Rachel.

Leah Brooke has done it again with book 3 of the Desire, Oklahoma series. The wonderful cast of characters in this small town warm your heart and it's like catching up with old friends when characters from the previous books pop up. At times, I wanted to knock Rachel, Boone and Chase in the head for taking so long to get their heads on straight. The sex scenes between the three are explosive and I can't wait for the next book to come in this sizzling series.

Midnight Rodeo by Luxie Ryder (Midnight Cowboys book 1)
ISBN # 1-60601-327-0
Author's Website: http://www.luxieryder.com/
Local Chelwood bar owner, Talia anticipates the arrival of the rodeo in town with the extra business it brings. She wasn't anticipating the two sexy cowboys that came strolling in to the bar one night. Reb is sexy and blond and Cody is dark and mysterious. Attraction is instantaneous between the three.
Cody and Reb have been buddies forever and their taste in women is the same. So when they see Talia, they can't resist her charms. A private rodeo between the three ensues after the bar closes one night. That night of sizzling seduction turns into a competition for Talia's affection. What will happen when Talia is forced to choose between the two friends?
Luxie Ryder wrote an enticing little read with Midnight Rodeo. Talia had basically given up on men after the number her ex had done on her. Cody and Reb are charmers who know how to sizzle between the sheets. Not quite as long as I'd hoped for, Midnight Rodeo is still a spicy read. I look forward to the next book in this series.
