LONG HARD RIDE
Look no further than James's tale for the thrill of the rodeo and hot cowboys. Authentic rodeo scenes create an exciting setting, and bedroom encounters are spectacularly fiery, including group, bondage and same-sex male scenes. Two secondary romances are left tantalizingly unfinished, easily allowing for sequels.
Running away from her boring Boston life, Channing arranges to travel with rodeo competitor Colby for one week while living out her sexual fantasies. But Colby also travels with Trevor and Edgard, and the three share everything. As Colby's feelings for Chan deepen, he wonders what will happen when their week together ends.
