Kaylie Ward wonders how she manages to attract men who drag her down.  It seems like every time she thinks she has met Mr. Right he quickly turns into Mr. Wrong.  Frustrated at another failed attempt at love, she swears off men.

Max Lockhard and Brayden Sinclair are the best of friends who insist on sharing everything; even the women they date.  They specialize in ménage and together they both leave a lasting impression on the woman they choose to seduce.

Kaylie decides to drown her man trouble in a bottle of tequila.  Somehow she lands in the bed of Max and Brayden.  With two willing males could this be a dream or real life?  The two lusty males do not give her time to sort out the details, for they are intent on giving her the ride of her life.

From page one of MAKE MINE A DOUBLE there is no doubt that you have hit upon a scorcher of a romance!  Max and Brayden are two characters who know how to find and satisfy their needs.  Kaylie is a match for these two strong alpha males. Together the three make one hot reading experience.  MAKE MINE A DOUBLE is a sequel to MY GREATEST FANTASY.  Both books combined would make for one electrifying reading experience.

Nine years ago, Ethan Powell had to make a choice whether to stay with the woman he loved, or to enlist in the Marines.  In the end, he selected to have a career in the service.  He gave his position one hundred and ten percent of everything he had to ensure that he fought gallantly for his country.  Unfortunately, a car bomb tragically ended his career; now he finds himself back in his Arizona home town.

Caitlin Carmichael loved Ethan with her whole heart.  The two of them had been high school sweethearts.  When Ethan chose his career over her love, she was heartbroken.  Her decision to become a nurse was the result of her brother getting injured while he was in high school.  She works part time as a nurse at a local rodeo.

Ethan is intent to prove that the loss of his leg will not keep him from living his life to the fullest.  He returns to his rodeo career by entering an event.  While practicing for the up and coming event, he is thrown from his horse.  He finds that the person who tends to his injury is his old flame Caitlin Carmicheal.

Caitlin does not approve of Ethan’s choice of careers.  She suffered through seeing her brother make a snap decision that resulted in him being paralyzed.  She refuses to give her approval for Ethan to take part in such a dangerous sport.

Can Ethan and Caitlin rekindle the love that they once felt for one another?  Or have each one of them grown apart in the nine years they were separated?

HER COWBOY’S CHRISTMAS WISH was the perfect Christmas gift this reader/reviewer received.  Cathy McDavid has done a magnificent job in creating two wounded characters that are so deserving of loves healing balm.  This is the first book I have read by Ms. McDavid, but I assure you that it will certainly not be my last. 

HER COWBOY’S CHRISTMAS WISH is the second book in the Mustang Valley series.  The other titles include:

  • BABY’S FIRST CHRISTMAS – Book 3, due to be published March 2012

At twenty-nine, Ella Williams is not prepared for the sudden death of her husband Kirk.  In desperation, she turns to her husband’s best friend Sicilian billionaire Maximiliano D’Alesandro, hoping that he can provide the solid foundation her life needs to get back in control.

Max feels that Ella somehow is responsible for his best friend’s death.  When she seeks out his help he refuses to help her out of her situation.  He feels that he would be betraying his friend if he were to offer her his assistance. 

Although Max has all the riches the world has to offer, there is one thing missing from his life- a submissive woman to complete his BDSM lifestyle.  When he learns that Ella also has an interest in BDSM, it intrigues him enough to give her a second chance.  Will he be able to put the death of his friend behind him to discover what the future holds for Ella and himself? 

GUILTY PLEASURES 4 – LOVE SLAVE TO THE SICILIAN BILLIONAIRE is yet another exceptional book by legendary author Jan Bowles.  Whenever I see this authors name I know that I must read her latest offering.  Few authors can compare to her writing style.  She manages to weave a BDSM story like no other author I have ever experienced.  GUILTY PLEASURES 4 – LOVE SLAVE TO THE SICILIAN BILLIONAIRE is a book with great substance.  It provides a well written BDSM book and also dwells on love, loss and the hope of finding the saving grace that only true love can provide.  Few authors’ can even dream of writing a book that provides so much emotional entanglement.  To experience a book written by Jan Bowles is a pure literary treat.
