When Wyatt catches some thugs harassing the pretty daughter of his bosses, he doesn’t hesitate to call on his partner Clayton to kick some asses. But then he realizes what a temptation the sweet, sheltered Hope presents. Especially her naughty wish to unleash her inner vixen—with both of them.
Hope has no doubt her playmates want to fulfill her every desire, but something’s holding them back. She has an idea what those somethings are. With luck, and a little help from her Compass cousins to hold her fathers off, she’ll find what she needs in the shadows of the past—and convince them she’s found two men of her own who are worthy of her love.
Warning: Compass books bring love in every direction and every season. But not all of life’s moments are filled with joy. Take the good with the bad, and the steamy.
Rough Riders Book 6
Tattoo artist India Ellison is well acquainted with preconceived notions. As a walking advertisement for the tattoo shop she’s set up in a small Wyoming town, she’s used to off-color comments about her colorful tats and hair. Still, life is good. She’s clean and sober, dotes on her sister’s kids and best of all, spends most of her free time with her best buddy, Colt McKay.
Reformed bad boy rancher Colt never expected three years of sobriety to lead to three years of abstinence. Curbing his craving for booze is nothing compared to the ever-increasing craving for his hot-tempered, hot-bodied best friend, India. Too bad she hasn’t a clue that Colt’s been head-over-bootheels in love with her from day one.
After an unexpected, steamy interlude, all India can think about is riding the sexy cowboy as hard and fast as her motorcycle. But Colt is determined to show her a slower ride is worth the wait.
The friendship that helped them conquer their past is about to be tested...by the new addiction they feel to each other.
