Cat Johnson

I absolutely loved these books. And would place Cat Johnson as my second favourite author of cowboy, erotic romance's. Although her books are short, they are full of passion and tales of the heart although being short they could have more details along with a longer plot line to make these books nearly on par with Lorelei James Rough Riders Series.

Clay and Mason have always shared everything and that includes their bosses daughter April. For one summer they shared each other in every way possible, only to each take different paths in life. When tragedy brings them back together can they make the choice which is right for them or society. This book was a little light and the subject matter could have been explored more with a longer plot line. But overall i would recommend this book as i loved it.

Studs in Spurs!

The first book UnRidden in the series Studs in Spurs from Cat Johnson is Rough Ride. I will admit to falling in love with the characters in this book, from Mustang to Slade and Jenna. I usually immediately fall out of love when an author gives ages of characters, but i was able to forget while i read as i all i wanted to know was who would end up with who. Jenna is a writer who has been sent to the rodeo to write an erotic book about cowboys ( a very popular genre so her writer says *giggles* ) Well while she's sitting in the stands Mustang set his eyes on her, and talks her into a drink under the disguise of reading her work for correct terminology. Well lets say the cowboys are not impressed with the sex scenes shes written. And decide to give her first hand experience to improve her writing of course.I loved this book i was disappointed when it ended until i went online and found out about Mustangs and Chases story was available ;) A

Bucked is the second books in the Series, Mustang is injured and is forced to return home to recooperate from his operation. When he get home he see's Sage, the little kid sister of his ex girlfriend is no longer a girl. She now all woman and very hard to resist. Having to make ends meet and not wanting to work with his disaproving father, Mustang uses what god gave him in the "Male Modelling world". After trying and failing to stay away from Sage, can they both accept who they are now, or will trust keep them apart. I loved this story, it was great to experience all the feelings Mustang went through.

Chase finds Lessa unbelievable attractive and want to know more about her, pitry shes the exotic dancer giving him a show in the back room for his birthday. Meeting Lessa the next day at the Rodeo signing he cant believe his luck and invites her up to his room for a few drinks. The next morning they wake up with a wedding certificate, two rings and no memory of where they came from. Chase figures he didnt want to be married, but while they are, there is no harm trying to convince her they should date once their divorced. I loved this book, especially the ending and it just made me want more of the series, which in my opinion is when you no you have a good author on your hands. I'm yet to read her other series or single stories, but when i do i will be sure to post telling you if she is as great at those as giving us stories of strong women and Cowboys. :) A

Tyler By C.H Admirand

Tyler needs to save the family ranch from forclosure. Needing money fast he applies for a job in the local paper, which turns out to be an exotic dancer. Out of his confort zone on stage hes not exaxtly thrilled. But he is taken by Emily his boss. In danger Tyler protects Emily.

I tried hard to read this book, but with an unimaginative plot, weak characters with little or no development i was unable to read more than half. I would not recommend this author at the moment but would read her next book just to assure myself her books are definately not for me. But she does have a very nice book cover ;) A

Denise Belinda McDonald - The Cowboy Plan

Alex Barret is always left taking care of others, now shes finally free to take care of herself. Drew Hartford is a famous Country Music Star, having women throwing themselves at him every night, the last thing he expected was Alex to throw her milkshake at him. Intrigued by Alex, he offers her a job which she can't refuse.

I found this book was an enjoyable read but forgettable, except for one doggy door and wide hips most of this book is a blur. Overall this is not a book which I would recommend. But I would try another of Denise Belinda McDonald books Wrong Cowboy, Right Turn, before making a complete and firm opinion.


Carolyn Brown - Honky Tonk

I Love This Bar
Hell Yeah
My Give a Dam is Busted
Honky Tonk Christmas

Originally ordered from Romantic Times thanks to the hunky Cowboy front covers, these books turned out to be a joy to read.
The Honky Tonk Is a Bar with an unusual curse for the owner, they will meet the man they love while working there. With vintage decor and juke box, and new songs played at the weekends, as each new owner of the bar finds romance, the legend and popularity surrounding the Honky Tonk Grows to. With cowboy's, Oil men and sassy head strong women, Daisy, Kathy, Larissa and Sharlene there is a character for every woman to relate to, or cowboy to lust after.

Having read all four there was some debates over which books worked and which did not, with different opinions found. My favourite was My Give a Damn's Busted, with a multi layered plot and lots of questions answered i devoured this book in one sitting. The four books as a body of work while not an amazing series, i would definately read another of Carolyn Browns other novels.

Lorelei James - Black Top Cowboys


Saddled and Spurred

Another excellent series by Lorelei James. She is by far my favorite author in the Cowboy Genre. She manages to include eroticism, humor, and indepth plot lines and character to make her books must reads.

Corralled is the first installment in the series, sports therapist Lainie Capshaw finds her self envoled with both Hank and Kyle. Dating both at the same time no one is more surprised than Lainie by the proposition given to her when she's caught out. With a memorable seen involving a wooden horse and a saddle it will definately get you hot under the collar

Saddled and Spurred is brilliant with humor, eroticism, and a reminder not to judge people by how they look. Bran Turner is in need of a ranch hand, and prim and proper beauty queen Harper Masterson needs a job. This book brilliantly adds depth while setting up threads for the books to come. I loved this book and would definately be one i would recommend to read.

Keep an eye out for the next installment of Black Top Cowboys Wrangled andTangled


R C Ryan - Montana Series

  • Montana Legacy
  • Montana Destiny
  • Montana Glory

I enjoyed this series by R.C Ryan, it was light hearted and each book had a happy ending. Montana Glory was by far my favourite book even if it conclution. R. C Ryan writes about the three McCord cousins, who spend an idilic childhood on the family ranch, before two are taken away by their parents. Zane to Hollywood, Wyatt arround the world, while Jesse's stayed to take over responsibilty of the ranch. Reunited by the death of their grandfather the cousins set out to fullfill their grandfathers last wish to stay on the ranch and search for the gold lost by their ancesters. The unusal story line ending was a brillinat way to conclude the series, and left me overall with a positive feeling towards R.C Ryan's work. Although i would no necessarily recommend these books to read.

Cowboys - The Mc Kettricks

I could be here for a very long time writing out all the wonderful stories in this series by Linda Lael Miller. So please allow me to group a few together.
  • McKettricks Luck
  • McKettricks Pride
  • McKettricks Heart
These brothers fight for their women, to protect, and provide, and make a life for themselves. After the family business is floated on the stock market, all the brothers gravitate back to the family ranch and times when they were once happy. All these story contain strong women who must help tame the wild Mckettrick men.
  • McKettricks of Texas :Tate
  • McKettricks of Texas : Garret
  • McKettricks of Texas : Austin
These cowboys are my personal favourites, I loved Garrets and Austins books and how brilliantly the opposites are written.

Tate is a divorced father of two girls, who is struggling to keep up with the demands of his business and the ranch. Libby Remmington is struggling to take care of her mother and run her business. Once childhood sweethearts, a mistake cost them there chance, except Tate is playing for a second one.

After a scandal breaks out Garret returns home from the political scene, planning to lay low for a while and then hes straight back to the big city.
Julie Remmington is Garret nemisis from school, but now Garrett finds himself less inclined to argue first especially when its not the first thing which comes to mind when he see's her.

Austin Mckettrick was bested by a bull, in pain and moody he returns home. His brothers say he needs a nurse, and hire Paige Remmington. Paige isn't to happy with her new paitents attitude she is after all trying to do a job he keeps firing her from. But is it because he doesn't need a nurse, or because he doesn't want Paige to be his nurse, either way Paige is going anywhere.

If you could read one series by Linda Lael Miller I would recommend this one. There are other books in each series some historical or following other relatives journeys, but these are definately the high lights of each.


This is the start of cowboy month. With a series of books which centre arround hunky cowboys.

Some of the best Cowboy Novels are written by Linda Lael Miller. In my opinion she is one of the best authors to first start reading.

Montana Creed's and The Mckettricks are two great series to begin reading. Montana Creeds series is about three brothers who return home to rebuild the family ranch.

Logan, February 2009.
Logan returns home after years of wandering with a successful Law practice and the money to rebuild his ranch. Showing Kindness to a stranger Brianna and her young sons, her life is put in danger by her past. Logan takes Brianna and her sons and makes sure to protect what is now his own. This book was a pleasure to read although not untypical of the Cowboy genre it was well written and a nice beginning to the Series.

Dylan, March 2009. Dylan arrives home to the family ranch with a surprise. The daughter he rarely gets to see, between his skills at the rodeo and with woman, Dylan Knows very little when it comes to his daughter who is left in his truck. Kirsty Madison would not be called Dylans number one fan, after leaving her with a broken heart she has to decided whether he is worth the risk once again.

I loved this book, its rare to have a male lead left holding the baby, and the simple every day experiences in this book make it a true joy to read.

Tyler, April 2009. Tyler returns home trying to mend fences with his brothers, through out all these books you learn of the rock childhood each of the brothers had. Although this is also a love story between Tyler and Lily, it resolved many of the unanswered questions and truely portrays a person coming to terms with a awful past. This was a brilliant ending and left me wishing they had one more brother to read about.

Overall a brilliant Series which i have Kept to read over and over.
