Cattleman Bran Turner is left shorthanded during busy calving season when a bull tramples his hired hand. Rural Wyoming isn't exactly a hotbed of qualified candidates, and the only applicant for the position is the pampered town beauty, Harper Masterson. The curvy cowgirl gets under Bran's skin at every turn, but with no other options, he reluctantly hires her.
When sexual sparks ignite, down-on-her-luck Harper convinces Bran that not only is she capable of pulling calves, feeding livestock, and handling backbreaking ranch chores, but she doesn't mind getting down and dirty, either. Harper also discovers the hot-bodied cowboy isn't all work and no horseplay... and he's got more than a few tricks up his sleeve. Brian will learn quickly that Harper is no country mouse - and that she might just have what it takes to stick around for the long haul.

"James once again writes her trademark hot alpha hero and strong, feisty heroine in the second fast-paced and sexy Blacktop Cowboys novel." (Romantic Times)
I'm just half way through, I had to stop because I don't want this audio to end too soon. I don't know how they go about picking a narrator ,but Scarlet Chase is great. She does male and female voices excellent. Great job.
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
Great second instalment of the rugged, tough, sexy cowboys that we've all come to love (and hate at times). However, this could easily be a stand alone listen as I am sure they all could be.
If you've already listened and enjoyed book 1 or listened and enjoyed any of LJ's other books then do yourselves a favour and stop reading this review and just download this now 'coz times a wasting!.
However, if you haven't then within the hours of listening to this story you will find yourselves transported to a slice of life in a small town that's filled with interesting characters and hot cowboys and ranch-hands that are very needy demanding and sexy whose personalities always clash, but ultimately bend, when faced with the one woman that they just can't tame.
Worth a credit? Well, this was a fun, sad, frustrating, passionate, romantic HOT HOT HOT listen which I own up to thoroughly enjoy delving into occasionally - so that would be a yummy YES YES YES from me.
I love this series. I love Lorelei James style of present day story. Us ladies that ride horses and love the western setting can't get enough of the series. Please keep them coming!!
Vicki Lewis Thompson Son's of Chance series. Love this one too!!
I get very caught up in this series. Yes and Yes!!

I'm sure that in a few months when I've forgotten the plot or characters, I'm going to remember the sizzle and steam of this book. And I'll never be able to think about ranchers the same.
Our guy hero is your classic reticent rancher, but deplores conspicuous consumption (overt displays of wealth), and hints at a strong moral compass and a little discerning when it comes to women. Our gal hero is not what she seems, as he soon finds out.
The relationship intrigue builds. The surprises keep coming in this book. Our rancher has not only read 50 shades and its ilk, he apparently modelled it back before he became discerning (smile). Ms James does sex like no one else (& I've read/listened to over 52 books this year). And she does it differently than anyone else. The couple's explorations arn't so much the power/dominance dynamic as they are and expression of the growing emotional intensity as they both anticipate the countdown of her departure while trying to mask their emotional attachment to each other.
If you like linda lael miller, but want a lot more heat a lot of the time, this'll crown your bookshelf.
The narrator is truly excellent, in a rare top 5 category. This is an excellent buy for one credit or for cash. I'll be ready more by this author. After a cold shower and a cool down with Larissa Ione or Christine Feehan.
I'd give this a 4.5 if I could. I'll round up to a 5. I really think you should get this book.
I sure liked this story. Definitley fantasy thinking a rancher would take on a citified female...
Exciting, Fun, Sexy
Small Town Life
All of them she was GREAT
Love any Lorelei James Books, Always a GREAT Listen.
For as much as I read and listen you would think by now that I would know how to spell lol. I read at least 5 books a week there are times I have gotten up to 10 in a week.
extreme reaction no, but I did enjoy it.
I cant wait for the next one to come.
I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.
Yes, It's the second in the series. It starts out slow but then it gets yummy!!
Harper, because she does what it takes to survive.
It has explict sexual content. I can't wait to hear the third and fourth book in this series. Its a good storyline and has kept my interest.
I have read (2x) and listened (2x) to the series. I really enjoy the characters interaction with each other. Harper is easy going with a quick wit and Brand's pride and determination make for a good team. There's a lot of sex scenes in this book but in the end the declaration of love Brand shows Harper is truly romantic.
