COWBOY GAMES [Erotic Contemporary Romance] At Fantasy Ranch, love is a game. THE PLAYERS: Gavin Carter. Gavin owns Fantasy Ranch, a resort where guests get a week of cowboy love with the hottest cowboys in Wyoming. Rebecca Ryder. Rebecca's husband had promised to deliver her fantasy du jour: A cowboy. He died before he could keep that promise. She thinks if she plays the Fantasy Ranch game, just for a second she might have her husband back. And maybe that will be long enough to say goodbye. THE RULES: 1) No sex. 2) No contact or attempted contact after the week is up. Clause number two is accompanied by a clear warning: Any attempt at contact will be considered 'criminal stalking' and treated as such. A sure sign the cowboys are very good at making women think they have fallen in love. Rebecca doesn't expect to break the rules. Or to fall deeply in love. ** Recommended Read: 5 Angels "I thoroughly enjoyed Cowboy Games very much. The sexual tension that developed between Gavin and Rebecca was so hot you would have thought you were in the Mohave Desert. Cowboy Games was such a well written book by Wendi Darlin . When you think of a cowboy as well as how he should be, Gavin is that cowboy. He is sexy, knows how to handle a horse, has that great charm cowboys have about them and he fills out a pair of jeans in all the right areas. Rebecca showed that sometimes you can get lucky twice in finding the man of your dreams. Cowboy Games is filled with romance, fun, a steamy love scene and scorching cowboys. This is why I gave Cowboy Games Five Angels and the title of Recommended Read." --Cheryl, Fallen Angel Reviews. ** Outstanding Read: A "Wendi Darlin's Cowboy Games is one smokin' story. From the first page through the last she takes us on a non-stop ride of sexual tension, teasing and a whole lot of loving. The setting is Wyoming on the "Fantasy Ranch" and by the time you finish reading you'll be looking for some brochures yourself. The characters are strong and tender, stubborn and loving and all together realistic. Cowboy Games is well written, humorous, and filled with smoldering passion. The sexual tension oozes throughout and the secondary plot is strong enough to keep you on edge worrying for our hero and heroine. All things must come to an end and the week at Fantasy Ranch is no different, but we can hope that Ms. Darlin will invite us back for more experiences in the future. Squeezing itself onto my keeper shelf, I'll be looking for more of Ms. Darlin's books to read. I highly recommend you pick this one up and enjoy a little trip to the Fantasy Ranch." --Lynda, Simply Romance Reviews.** 5 Flags: "Wendi Darlin takes you on a long sexy ride with Cowboy Games. From the first page I was hooked and drawn into Rebecca's emotions. Her love for her husband and the pain of his loss was palpable. Yet she was daring too, a strong feisty heroine and one who was a joy to meet. Of course once you encounter Gavin, you can't help but fall head over heels for the gorgeous hunk of a cowboy--damn close to every woman's perfect fantasy! Cowboy Games is an incredibly steamy story. The heat between Gavin and Rebecca is scorching and I'm amazed the pages weren't smokin'. I'd lasso this book right quick and have yourself a good ole' time, just make sure you have something cold nearby to cool you off--you're gonna need it!" --Lynda, Euro-Reviews.** 4 Stars: "Cowboy Games by Wendi Darlin has a very good plot. The plot flows smoothly building up to the pinnacle of passion and love. The characters worked well together. Gavin was strong yet vulnerable. This book is filled with romance, passion, and excitement." --Debra Gaynor, Review Your Book. ** Cowboy Games is a Romance Writers of America's 2008 Linda Howard Award of Excellence WINNER, 2007 Duel on the Delta WINNER, 2007 TARA 3rd Place, and 2007 Beacon 3rd Place.

"Rebecca?" Gavin's voice was low.

"Is that who you wanted to call?" She pulled the comforter down on the bed and plumped her pillows into place.

"It sounds like I got the right number." His voice was sexier than ever in the darkness of the room.

"Are you in bed?" she asked, licking the dryness from her lips, hoping he was calling her from some place private, that he hadn't misinterpreted the game.

"Yeah. Are you?"

"Not yet. I need to undress first." Her stomach tensed. This was the moment of truth. Was he going to play along? He was silent, not giving her any indication he was onboard yet. She swallowed the lump in her throat and lowered her voice to just more than a whisper. "What do you sleep in?"

"Nothing." His laughter was soft, deep in his throat. "What about you?"

"Usually more than that, but tonight I think I'll try it your way."

"I bet you'd look great in nothing." His voice spurred her on, made her want to please him, to let him please her.

"Close your eyes and picture me. I just untied the robe and now I'm slipping it over my shoulder." She switched the phone to her other ear. "And my other shoulder."

"Where is it now?" The urgency in his voice heated her.

"On the floor around my feet." She could tell by the way he exhaled he had painted a nice image of her in his mind. "Where's your hand?" she asked.

"On the phone."

He was going to make her work every step of the way, but that was fine, she didn't want to rush. "Your other hand?"

"Around my cock."

Oh yes, he was ready to play this game and the abandon of his words spooled her. She moaned softly, letting him know how much she liked the image he gaveher. "If I was in your bed that's where I'd be. That's exactly where I'd be."

"Around my cock?" He wasn't finished with her yet, not ready to let her hurry past this, or get away with vagueness, and she didn't have any intention of letting him down.

"I'd be all around your cock. Warm and wet. My whole body so soft against the hardness of yours. I love how strong you are, how safe that makes me feel, like I can fall apart and you'll hold me together." Her voice was husky full of breath, the same tone that used to melt Todd. "I want to please you, make you need me as much as I need you."

"You're so sexy, so wild," he said. "I'll make you come so hard. Are you ready for that? Will you let me do that for you?"

"I'm so ready. I'll do anything you want me to do."

"Where's your hand?" he asked.

"On my stomach. Waiting for you to tell me which way to go with it."

"Are you in bed yet?"

She lay back on the mattress, made herself comfortable. "Now I am."

"Take your hand to your breast. I love the feel of your breasts."

"Umm." He wanted control and she wanted to give it to him, to let him take her where she wanted to go. "How would you touch my breast right now?" she asked.

"I'd cradle it. Feel every curve. The weight of it. The softness. It's so soft, so tempting I can't resist a taste. I have to taste your nipple. Do you like that?"

"I do like that," she said, wetting her fingers with her mouth then circling the hardened peak. She brought her knees up. "I like that so much. You have me so wet."

"Slide your hand down your stomach, that soft flat stomach of yours. Don't stop until you can tell me just how wet you are."

She gasped when she reached her slick heat. He responded with a groan. "I'm so wet," she said. "And oh my God, I'm so swollen. My fingers. They ... they slip in before I can stop them."

"How many?" His voice was strained. She was having the exact effect she wanted to have on him. Doing as much for him as he was for her.

"Two." She arched her back, pushing her breasts in the air, wishing he was there to take them, to take her.

"Are they in you now?" His breath was heavier than before.

"Uh hum. I wish it was you. I want you inside me."

"Make it three," he demanded.

"It's three," she responded, her breath in her throat.

"Go deeper." His voice was lower, so close to ear.

"Oooh..." she moaned. "Oh my God."

"I want to be in you," he said. "To feel how hot and wet you are."

"I feel you in me." She licked her lips, reaching deeper.

"Do you feel how hard I am?"

"You are so hard. So. So. Hard."

"I'm so far inside of you." His breath was heavier still. "Stroking so deep into you."

"I want more," she begged. "Please give me more." The phone nearly slipped from her hand.

"I'm as far as you want me to be. As deep as you want me to go."

"Don't stop," she whimpered, moving her hand to a rhythm that was soon going to take her over the edge.

"I'm not stopping," he promised. His breath was coming as fast as hers. "I won't stop."

I loved Cowboy Games, because let's face it, who doesn't love a sexy cowboy, and Gavin Carter is one of the sexiest. He also operates Fantasy Ranch, every female's idea of a dream vacation. For seven days, the guests at Fantasy Ranch are treated like royalty by their gorgeous cowboy. Of course, there's a catch--two small rules that are not negotiable: No sex. No contact or attempted contact after the week is up. Rebecca Ryder lost her husband a year ago and is still mourning his death. Their parting words on that fateful day involved a cowboy fantasy they'd enact when he came home from work that night, unfortunately, he never came home. Now Rebecca is ready to live that fantasy in the protected atmosphere of Fantasy Ranch. One big problem: Rebecca and Gavin never considered that their fantasy might turn to reality, causing them to break every rule imposed by the ranch and by their own hearts. Cowboy Games is a delightful tale of two lovable characters who are desperately trying to deny their attraction for each other. Wendi weaves a story full of sexual tension, heightened by the fact that the characters keep avoiding the inevitable. She takes you right to the edge of your seat then keeps you wanting more. As a final twist, the ranch is being investigated by the authorities with the hope of getting enough dirt to close it down. Pick up your own copy of Cowboy Games. You'll enjoy every minute of it.
