Sizzling, Suspense Romance
What a great anthology written by Rosemary Laurey, Karen Kelley and Dianne Castell. These are three intertwining stories set in the little town of Silver Gulch, Texas. On the death of their Grandfather, three sisters, who did not know anything about the other, inherit from his Estate. Apparently his son, Drew, had three daughters from three different women but never supported any of them. With that note the fun is about to begin..........IN BAD WITH SOMEONE by Rosemary Laurey brings us Juliet ffrench who was a manager of an Art Gallery in London before coming to Texas to claim her inheritance from a grandfather who she only met once. She is to inherit a building including the Ragged Rooster Bar, four apartments and a sizeable chunk of money. Therein lies the problem, because unbeknown to her, her grandfather had made an agreement with Rod Carter, the manager of the Red Rooster, that when he passed on he would inherit it. Rod and Juliet, from the moment they set eyes on each other, have a sensational chemistry going that is undeniable hot. But Rod is really getting a raw deal and a compromise is made, but there are strange occurrences going on that neither Juliet or Rod can account for.........throwing suspicion on each other.......can it be sorted out?..........RUN OF BAD LUCK by Karen Kelley brings us Nina Harris a free lance photographer who has inherited the ranch, Maddock's Dream, from a grandfather she has never met. Lance Colby is the foreman of the ranch, who since the grandfather had no next of kin stood to inherit, but this has now been turned upside down. When Nina first sets eyes on Lance he is breaking a wild horse, and she decides that she is going to have him as centrefold for a magazine that she free lances for. Lance is having no part of the deal. Whenever she is around Lance he puts fire in her blood and the sparks from the two of them is enough to burn down all the buildings and them in the process..........but can their differences be settled? And why was she picked to inherit at all from a perfect stranger?..........COME TO A BAD END by Dianne Castell brings us Lillie June a former graphic designer who is tired of the business rat race and since she has inherited the hotel, turned it into a The Silver Springs Spa. This has stirred up the men folk of the town, since they do not want their women associating with such a place and getting all fancy ideas. They demand that Sheriff John Snow do something to get rid of the Spa. But John is reluctant because he would rather stay away from someone who he considers to be temptation and dynamite all in one package. The sizzle and sparks between them is enough to set off a Roman candle, talk about lust at first sight. But wait there are more strange goings on, and come to think of it there was never a body found to substantiate the death. This leads John to think that possibly the granddaughters had something to do with the demise of the grandfather, I mean who stood to be bigger gainers. But Lillie points out that Lance and Rod have just as much to gain with his death.............Between the pages of this book the three authors have penned a sizzling romance, with mystery, suspense and a ending that makes you sigh. I would highly recommend this anthology and feel that it will not disappoint.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Bad Boy Fun!
When a grandfather disappears, leaving everything he owns to three beautiful granddaughters that he has never met, he could not have imagined the impact his bequest would have on their lives or the lives of the three young men who are thrown into the mix.****** IN BAD WITH SOMEONE by Rosemary Laurey - When Juliet ffrench inherits The Ragged Rooster, a rowdy bar in Silver Gulch, Texas, she travels from London, determined to make the most of the requirement that she remain in Silver Gulch for three years. The one distraction that Juliet didn¿t anticipate was Rod Carter, manager of the Rooster. Rod had been told that he would be inheriting the bar needless to say he is not pleased with Juliet¿s arrival or her determination to stay and run the bar. Once the two put their heads together to investigate repeated strange happenings around the bar, could a joining of their hearts be far behind?****** RUN OF BAD LUCK by Karen Kelley - Nina Harris arrives at Maddock¿s Dream, the ranch she recently inherited from her grandfather, just in time to witness a real cowboy breaking a wild horse. Nina is used to seeing beautiful male bodies as a male centerfold photographer, but those men don¿t hold a candle to Lance Colby, the ranch foreman. Lance doesn¿t understand why any red-blooded male would take off his clothes to pose in a women¿s nudie magazine, but taking his clothes off to be with Nina was an assignment he was more than just a little interested in, despite the fact that she has inherited the ranch that her grandfather had promised to him. Nina and Lance get to know each other very well, very quickly, and while their relationship heats up, they are faced with some odd occurrences around the ranch. Can these young lovers work together in spite of the deceit that brought them together?****** COME TO A BAD END by Dianne Castell - Lillie June¿s new spa is the talk of the town in Silver Gulch. The women love it because they¿re pampered, eating healthier and getting themselves in shape. The men hate it ¿ for the same reasons. They don¿t want smelly, relaxing candles in their homes or to be forced to eat healthy, gravy-free meals. Sheriff John Snow has been chosen to talk to Lillie and convince her to stop the nonsense of pampering the women of Silver Gulch. John has intentionally been avoiding Lillie in order to fight an attraction Lillie would like nothing more than to get her hands on John, knowing she could help him relax those painfully tight muscles. After meeting her sisters, Juliet and Nina, for the first time, Lillie is more determined than ever to make her business a successful addition to Silver Gulch. Once Lillie does get her hands on John, and he gets his hands on her, he realizes that he¿s not in such a hurry to see Lillie leave town after all.****** TEXAS BAD BOYS is a compilation of the works of three of the hottest names in women¿s fiction. All three stories tie in together, and it is fun re-visiting characters in each of the stories. All three heroines are spunky, independent, and self-confident. Each was hurt and deeply affected by what they mistakenly thought was a neglectful grandfather. The heroes that these authors have created to perfect order for their heroines are gentlemanly, in spite of the deceit of their old friend, and attentive to each and every need of their respective women. TEXAS BAD BOYS is yet another fun dose of bad boys and is highly recommended. COURTESY LAURIE/ROMANCE JUNKIESWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
