    Romance

    Rugged Texas Cowboy by Lora Leigh Two novellas in one book – Having seen Lora Leigh’s name about for some time I thought this book might be a nice introduction to her writing but perhaps not. This is a story of two friends/business partners in business together as pilots. They take on an iffy job and nearly die in the prologue and then have their romances told in each of the novellas. I have to say that if you are looking for a cowboy romance or one that could possibly maybe happen and is realistic then stay away. If, on the other hand, you are looking for some steamy scenes with more of a fantasy feel then this might work for you – sadly I didn’t really fall for either hero or heroine of these stories. COWBOY AND THE CAPTIVE Luc Jordan kidnaps the woman who set him up in the prologue – or thinks he does – and has the blessing of her brother to do so. I had trouble with more than one thing in this story from the parents adoring Maria and using Melina as her scapegoat to the instant attraction she felt the first time she saw Luc…before the kidnapping. Not my cup of tea…though I don’t mind a bit of bondage and other things that happened in this book IF in the right context with consent of both parties. COWBOY AND THE THIEF Jack Riley ends up in Ireland where he buys a family heirloom with magic powers. Angel Manning, the daughter of the seller of the heirloom, is incensed by the purchase and heads off to steal it back. This book again has some questionable interactions in the bedroom and a romance I found unbelievable…the only thing I can say is that necklace must have had STRONG magical properties to see the Jack and Angel together at the end. Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for the ARC – This is my honest review. 1-2 Stars

    Two fun cowboy stories

    This book has two shorter stories included in it, Cowboy and the Captive and Cowboy and the Thief. In Cowboy and the Captive, Luc Jardin is ready to seek revenge on Miss Maria Catarina Angeles after the stunt she pulled that almost got his best friend, Jack Riley killed. Maria's brother, Joe ends up meeting Luc and together they decide that Luc will kidnap Maria and have her work off her debt. What Luc doesn't realize is that he is actually kidnapping Maria's twin, Melina. Of course Luc doesn't believe Melina when she tries telling him that she isn't Maria. That's when the fun begins. I really enjoyed the way these two pushed and pulled with each other. They didn't want to like the other but then you don't always get what you want! ;) I really enjoyed these characters and this story line. In Cowboy and the Thief, Jack Riley is in Ireland visiting his friend, Joseph Manning. What he didn't expect was to be captivated by his daughter, Angel. After some fun sparring back and forth, the sparks begin to fly. Joe thinks Jack just might be the one to bring the fire back into his daughter. When Joe ends up selling Jack the Irish torque, Angel is furious, but Jack refuses to give it back. Angel decides that she is going to steal the torque back from Jack once he's back in Texas. Too bad he was waiting for her! I really enjoyed the sparring between these two and it was interesting how the Irish history came into play.

    Awesome, Fabulous, and A Must Read!

    I loved reading the amazing and intriguing romance stories. Because of Melina's treachery, Jardin's revenge is to kidnap Melina, but unknown to Jardin, he kidnaps Melina's twin sister, Maria. Even though Maria tells Jardin who she really is, he doesn't believe her. As the two of them spend more time together, Jardin and Maria's feelings toward each other increase and attraction combusts. A second story is included, a mystical, and spellbinding story. As Angel searches for her ancestors' legendary Irish torque, which legend says it will lead her to her true love, she learns it has been sold to a man with a reputation, Jack Riley. Read the highly recommended and wonderfully written love stories full of romance, mystery, and intrigue.

    4 Stars for both!

    Cowboy and The Captive: This is an enemies to lovers and a mistaken identity situation. Melina has a twin sister, Maria who is addicted to drugs. Her parents keep guilting Melina into impersonating Maria when she gets caught to get her out of trouble. The problem is Maria is getting in worse situations that Melina can't talk her way out of and it's going to cost her her life. Luc has been buying his time until he can seek revenge on Maria for almost getting him and his friend, Jack killed. Luc doesn't want to hurt her, but he thinks he can straighten her up by kidnapping her and making her detox. What he doesn't know is that he kidnaps Melina instead of Maria. Luc and Melina's story was very entertaining. Lora Leigh has no problems with letting the sparks fly between her main characters. I really enjoyed this one. Cowboy and The Thief: Enemies to lovers trope. Jack is visiting his old friend Joseph in Ireland when he meets his daughter, Angel. Angel is very prim and proper with a hidden temper underneath and no one can get her riled faster than Jack. Joseph is conspiring to get Jack and Angel together and he takes a risk by selling a family heirloom to Jack that is legend to be responsible for granting true love to the daughters in the line. Angel is furious and follows him back to Texas to try and steal it back. Once again, Lora Leigh had the sparks flying in this short novella but I will admit I was a bit confused in the beginning. I couldn't tell if Jack and Angel had already known each other or had just met. I felt like I was missing the true beginning of the story. Still a very entertaining read! ARC provided by NetGalley.

    Loved both of these stories

    Cowboy and the Captive This is the way a novella is supposed to be written. Plenty of character development, a storyline that is strong and doesn’t feel contrived, lots of steamy chemistry, a small bit of angst and some thriller type drama to wrap it all up. I loved that Luc wanted Melina even when he didn’t know who she really was and had no reason to want her at all. However, once those wheels started, he was determined to continue on the ride to make her his woman and protect her along the way. Wonderful story and a reminder why I’ve always liked this author. Cowboy and the Thief Another great little read. Didn’t have the angst as the previous one did, but it had the potential to be a full blown novel had the author decided to go that way. She could definitely do a historical romance writing the first warrior’s story – the man who received the torque and started the whole thing. Again, there is plenty of chemistry and steam but this one also included a few BDSM practices. Overall, I really enjoyed this book and reacquainting myself with Lora Leigh’s writing. This is an honest review of an advanced copy provided by NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press.
