Overview

Good girls can play rough too…

Jessie McKay’s marriage to Luke McKay wasn’t perfect. After two years as a widow, she’s decided it’s time to kick up her bootheels—until Luke’s younger brother shows up to ruin her fun. But if Brandt thinks she’ll take orders from another McKay man, he’s got manure for brains.

Brandt McKay has avoided his sweet, sexy sister-in-law ever since confessing that his feelings for her weren’t the brotherly type. But when he’s faced with proof of Luke’s infidelity, Brandt is forced to ask for Jessie’s help taking care of Luke’s young son. Jessie agrees on one condition—she wants Brandt’s boots under her bed for the duration.

The sexual chemistry that’s always simmered between them combusts. Brandt is ready to make the temporary situation permanent and prove to Jessie he’s the one-woman man his brother couldn’t be. And Jessie is shaken by feelings she’s sworn never to have again for any man…especially a McKay.

Warning: Contains branding-iron-hot sex, the one McKay on earth who wants to be tamed, and a woman who has decided tame is for nice girls who finish last.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Turn on the air conditioner, get the fan out and grab some ice cubes because not only is this a good story, it’s also a hot one…even with all that strife there is still a great romance to be written and Ms. James does it with pure abandonment, reminding us that even in times of great stress there is happiness to be found…”

—Fallen Angel Reviews, Recommended Read

“This book is for lovers of romance, family drama, hot sex and delicious cowboys. Prepare to be swept away as a little boy, a cowboy and a widow climb right into your heart.”

—The Romance Reviews, Top Pick

“One of the best parts of these books is the hot cowboys and fantastic sex…but wrapped throughout this amazing story is some of the best erotica that you can read. It’s real, it’s raw and it’s all out there.”

—Night Owl Reviews

“The 10th book in the Rough Riders series just totally blew me away…this story kept me captivated and entertained as I raced through the pages to see two people who deserve their own happily ever after as much as Brandt and Jessie…regardless of the many hurdles that they face along the way.”

—Maldivian Book Reviews

“Lorelei James just can’t disappoint me with this series. At ten books in and a huge cast of characters she still manages to bring a hero and heroine that are unique and stand out among the cowboys and cowgirls that have paved the way before them.”

—Fiction Vixen Reviews

“Lorelei James can write the heck out of a book and make each story unique to each character…Watching these two grow and learn things about one another was so much fun. You’ll need a cold shower after reading this book…”

This was one of the best books of the serious. I will always love the first book the most because it started my love for the entire family, but I honestly loved this book just as much! I couldn't put it down, read it in two days.

I absolutely LOVE and trust everything Lorelei puts out. Her writing styles from her western/cowboy to her fighter/mma is remarkably different. However, amazing at the same time. It takes a brilliant writer to be so diverse in her styles.

There is something said for second chances. I liked that this book took a sad story and turned into something happy and worthy. I was kind of saddened by Jessie and her life with Luke but I have to admired Brandt for taking up his brother's slack and proving that not all McKay's are attached to that family "reputation". Also I would have like they could have Luke's son closer to them. It really shocked me what his mother told Jessie. It was kind of crazy to do that, but I think in that time and age and with her parents religious stance it was inevitable. I love this story because it shows us that ever though blood runs thicker that water it doesn't have the same effect on members of the same family. We all are unique!

This series is absolutely fantastic. I've never disappointed with ANYTHING she has written! There are 16 books in all in the Rough Rider Series starting with the Long Hard Ride and ending with Cowboy Take Me Away. If you've never read anything by Lorelei James you really should. You have no idea what you're missing.

Brandt *Sighs* How could you not fall in love with this McKay? He was the first to noticed Jessie at a bar, but when he pointed her out to his brother Luke, Brandt was left n the background. While Luke may have been a good brother, he sucked as a husband. When he died Brandt tried to step up to help Luke's widow Jessie. And then he found out that Luke had not only stepped out on his marriage but a baby that was born after he died. When the baby's mother needed help to straighten out her life she asked Brandt to watch him. Brandt needing help and not wanting the baby to be influenced or live with his father Casper he turns to the only one he thinks that can help him. Jessie. While I cussed Brandt out for putting this on her, I was happy that she saw Brandt for a man and invited.. or demanded him in her bed. Brandt is my favorite, (Right after Cam) I have read each of the Rough Rider series 2, some of them a few more times then that. I recommend this series to anyone that loves hot cowboys, strong women and lots of hot sex!

When Jessie McKay’s husband Luke dies, she believes she’s free and clear of her misery. But when his brother Brandt shows up on her doorstep with a young boy Luke fathered during one of his affairs, her first reaction is to tell him to go fly a kite. She finally surrenders and agrees to help him care for the toddler. To facilitate their arrangement, they decide to live together until the boy’s mother comes to reclaim him. They become lovers; a situation that Jess also says will come to an end at the same time. They didn’t count on their families accepting them as a couple, everyone that is except Brandt’s father, who causes nothing but misery. He threatens to strip Brandt of the lands where he runs cattle because his father owns the ranch land. As Jessie and Brandt fall in love, will that love be strong enough to triumph over the roadblocks put in their way? Ms. James keeps her series fresh and exhilarating as the tenth book explores the McKay family dynamics as well as the emotional growth of Jessie and Brandt. There’s fiery sex, a great story, and plenty of McKays roaming around to keep you entertained. I highly recommend this book to anyone who’s looking for a great read that’s titillating and entertaining. It can be read as a standalone, but should entice you to read the rest of this wonderful series.

Jessie McKay widow wants nothing to do with McKay men period especially since her husband Luke couldn't be bothered to stay in her bed. Brandt McKay has loved Jessie since he first laid eyes on her four years ago and no other woman can compare in his eyes. Brandt is furious with Luke over his infidelity even more so now that there is proof of it~a son. Brandt gets temporary guardianship of Landon and knows that he needs help taking care of him. So Brandt goes to the only person who can help him Jessie. Brandt knows that Jessie will be immeasurably hurt by this news but also knows that Jessie's heart is big enough to care for Landon. Once Jessie gets over the shock of seeing Landon agrees to Brandt's arrangement. Landon worms his way into Jessie's heart in ways she hadn't thought possible but he's not the only one that does. Brandt would give anything to prove that he's nothing like Luke to Jessie. Will Jessie allow Brandt into her heart? Will Brandt admit his true feelings? What will become of Landon? Your answers await you in Cowgirls Don't Cry. Jessie McKay has spent all the tears she'll ever cry over Luke McKay or so she thought until meeting Landon. I admire Jessie's courage in the face of meeting Luke's son and her commitment in taking care of him anyway. I wondered how this story would work out since learning of Luke McKay's death in previous books. Brandt McKay is an alpha male with gentle soul and gentlemanly ways. He hides darker side of himself from everyone because he fears losing control. Rough Riders Series keeps getting better and better with each book. I look forward to my next adventure in this series.
