Workin’ up a hot, sticky sweat is pure pleasure with a hard-ridin’ cowboy….
Widowed, struggling stock contractor Gemma Jansen swallows her pride and tracks down former bull rider Cash Big Crow to offer him a job managing her ranch. Cash agrees on one condition: it won’t be a strictly working relationship. She’s the boss during the day, but once she’s corralled in the bedroom, Cash calls the shots.
Meanwhile, Carter McKay is spending his summer at the Bar 9 Ranch preparing for an art show. But he’s definitely not prepared for the immediate visceral connection he feels to Cash’s sexy and sassy daughter Macie Honeycutt. Lust flares between them and Macie proves she’s up for any dirty fun and games that sweet and wild Carter dreams up.
Gemma struggles with her feelings for Cash–except this time, Cash has grabbed the bull by the horns. He has to convince Gemma he’s playing for keeps.
The more time Macie spends with Carter the harder she falls for him. But will the brooding artist understand that trust is just as important as love?
It’s going to be a long, hot summer in Wyoming.
Warning: this book contains explicit sex nine ways ’til Sunday, inventive rope play, graphic language, ménage a trois, and all sorts of fun and kinky cowboy stuff.

Barrel racer Celia Lawson knows better than to tangle with bull rider Kyle Gilchrist. The sexy cowboy’s love ‘em and leave ‘em ways have earned him a reputation on the rodeo circuit, and he’s always seen her as his best friend’s kid sister. But after one wild, tequila-fueled night, Celia wakes up to find out she’s gotten herself hitched—to a man she never should have married!
When Celia insists on an annulment, Kyle has no good reason to say no—except he isn’t ready to let go of his new bride. But then Kyle inherits a sprawling Wyoming ranch, and seizes the opportunity to enlist Celia’s help. She agrees to lend a hand—with two conditions: He has to get up to speed as a rancher within six months; then they’ll get a divorce. And their marriage will be in name only.
Kyle gives in to Celia’s demand, yet he's ready to prove to her he has what it takes to turn their one night rodeo into a lifetime of love….
