Book six of the Rough Riders comes at you hot and heavy and never lets up. The chemistry between the leads is palpable, their sex scenes refreshingly realistic and -- perhaps because of this -- amazingly hot. Their emotional connection is also a major draw. Their struggles with addiction are written with care and not simply as a plot device. James, aka Lori Armstrong, has created a book for those who unfailingly root for the outsiders.

Colt McKay can't shake his bad reputation, derived from years of boozing and womanizing, even though he's been clean and sober -- and celibate -- for the past three years. India Ellison has been his sponsor and best friend for those years. They've been in secretly in love with each other for a while, but facing an uncertain future together means coming to terms with their pasts. (SAMHAIN, Jan., 246 pp., $15.00)

Branded As Trouble

Submitted by Jancat on September 15, 2011 - 2:35pm.

Colt McKay is 6'+ of trouble for India Ellison.  This reformed playboy has his sights set on his best friend, India Ellison.  Lorelei James does a good job working the dynamics of two friends and recovering addicts into the story.  Their love ties them closer together.  The fact that their families are already tied together makes it interesting as they wade through the change in their relationship.  Yes, the sex is hot too.
