ROCKY MOUNTAIN DESIRE
The Six Pack Ranch is back, complete with familiar characters who manage to interfere in, yet enhance, this story. Enough background is given so the reader won’t be lost as another Coleman meets his match. The plot holds up well, with plenty of tension, sexual and otherwise.
Hope is holding on to her quilting shop by a thread. Ever since her sister split, mortgage payments have been hard to make. She’s been attracted to Matt for some time, but he comes with baggage. He dated her sister for years, and there was a disastrous breakup when she cheated on him and left for the big city. When Hope’s car breaks down and Matt rescues her, they embark on a tentative friendship, but it’s only a few weeks until they become lovers — with Matt taking complete charge in the bedroom. The new relationship is tested when Helen returns and wants Matt back, and a rival for Hope’s affections throws a monkey wrench into the works. (SAMHAINPUBLISHING.COM, dl $5.50)
