Overview

Down in Texas, there's a little town called Honkeytonk, where the women get exactly what they want. . .and the men know just how to give it to them.

Wearing His Brand

Lyssa McDonough just got tangled up in a coil of barbed wire, and her clothes are ripped to shreds. Rancher Brandon Tynan to the rescue—but why is she so ornery? Could it be that the whole state of Texas isn't big enough for the two of them? Hell, they'll still have to share one horse to get home. Lyssa better hang on tight—she's in for the wildest ride of her life. . .

Slow Ride

Maggie Dermott doesn't know the first thing about horses and Daniel Tynan is more than willing to show her the ropes. His gentle ways melt her heart and his sensual passion burns away her inhibitions. Daniel takes the time to love her right.

Straight Up Soldier

Suki Reece needs protection and she can see that Mac McDonough has the muscle. Too bad he can't stand taking orders from a woman. The rugged ex-Marine won't listen to a word she says until Suki distracts him with a sexy striptease. That gets his attention. Suki may have gotten the upper hand but Mac is going to be on top. . .

One story has an older, less than perfect heroine and a younger, hot cowboy. THAT story alone was worth buying the book and the reason it is one my keeper shelf.

"Wearing His Brand¿. Ever since Lyssa McDonough met Brand Tynan as a child she understood what her daddy and mama meant when they each defined the worth of a man. Now an adult she must persuade her man that she is his woman.

"Slow Ride". While working as a teenage ranch hand at her husband¿s spread Daniel Tynan hid as best he could that he loved Maggie Dermott. Now the much younger man tries to persuade the widow that in spite of their age difference to take a chance on them.

"Straight Up Soldier¿. After serving in the theater of operation, Mac McDonough has left the military. Suki Reese knows her ex will hurt her so she accepts Mac¿s offer to protect her. Neither expected the distraction of their attraction.

These three hot interrelated Texas romances are all well written tales with deep lead characters in each. Readers will relish the Texas heat as Delilah Devlin delightfully delvers.

"Down in Texas" is a three story western erotica anthology from Delilah Devlin. The stories center on two ranching families in Texas finding love and a whole lotta steamy sex.

"Wearing His Brand" - What happens when the one man you want is the one who promised your brother he'd keep you safe? Well, you could just push him past his edge...as long as you can handle it. ***Sizzling

"Slow Ride" - Daniel had the hots for his boss's wife seven years ago. Now she's a widow and he'll have to find a way to convince her that both he and his feelings are all grown up. ***Sweeter, but still hot.

"Straight Up Soldier" - What do a woman on the run and a wounded soldier have in common? Surly tempers and hot emotions apparently.

I actually liked all three stories and their interconnecting characters. None of them include anything other than Alpha male sex with one female. Nice, shorter stories for when you only have a few minutes.

¿Delilah Devlin really delivers ¿down home¿ entertainment in her sizzling western anthology, DOWN IN TEXAS for Kensington Aphrodisia 'Nov. 2008'. In ¿Wearing His Brand¿, Lyssa McDonough, who¿s been running the family ranch while her brother is off serving his country, is desperate to get neighboring rancher, Brandon Tynan to notice her as more than just the girl next door. When Lyssa gets herself caught in barbed wire, she¿s sure she can catch Brandon¿s attention with her womanly curves when he¿s forced to doctor her wounds. However, it¿s not until Brandon sees her dirty dancing at a honkytonk with another cowboy that Brandon decides he has to stake his claim. In ¿Slow Ride¿ Brandon¿s younger brother, horse whisperer, Daniel Tynan, has never forgotten earthy Maggie Dermott, the wife of the rancher he worked for as a teenager. When he hears of her husband¿s death and Maggie¿s need for help to keep her ranch going, he rides to her rescue. Maggie can¿t believe the young, sexy cowboy would want anything to do with a mature, older woman but Daniel is more than willing to show Maggie that her bed is exactly where he¿d like to hang his spurs at night. In ¿Straight Up Soldier¿ ex-Marine, Mac McDonough is living as a recluse in a cabin in the woods trying to recover from his wounds in Iraq and wondering if he¿ll ever be free of pain, flash backs and the cane he needs to walk. When bar owner, Tara Toomey shows up with supplies for him, she asks him to help her friend at a local cabin, Suki Reece, who needs protection from an abusive stalker boyfriend. Mac can¿t refuse but plans to just make Suki go to the police. However, when he meets the petite Asian-Anglo woman and discovers her ex-boyfriend is the drug runner they¿ve been trying to catch on nearby ranches, Mac decides he needs to stick around not only to protect Suki but also to see if their attraction is mutual. Western fans don¿t miss DOWN IN TEXAS with its three terrific, fast-paced, sexy tales!¿

Down in Texas is an anthology of three stort stories written by Delilah Devin. All three of the stories are centered around two ranching families the McDonoughs and the Dermotts. Wearing His Brand In this first story Lyssa and Brand Tynan have grown up together. Lyssa has lusted after Brand for years but he has always treated her like a little sister, since she is his best friend's sister after all. Brand has been tasked with looking after Lyssa while her big brother Mac is off on a military mission. Brand comes across Lyssa trapped in barbed wire fencing after an accident and things begin to heat up between these two on the shared horse ride back home. I really enjoyed this first story. Lyssa and Brand already have an established relationship and the pace moves fairly quickly. I love that readers get to just jump right into the story. Lyssa is a spunky character and isn't afraid to maneuver the situation to suit her needs. I also liked that this story easily set up the next story in the book and that the smuggler plot was carried on through till the end of the book. Slow Ride Daniel Tynan ten years ago worked as a farm hand for the Dermott's. As a young man he found Maggie Dermott to be the woman of his dreams and to his shame he found himself lusting after an older, married woman. He answers an employment ad to once again find himself back at Dermott's ranch when Maggie is now a widow and in desperate need of help to keep the ranch afloat. Slow Ride was probably my least favorite of the book. Maggie has quite a bit of baggage that she needs to overcome before she can be truly comfortable with a relationship with Daniel. I felt that in such a short period of time her acceptance of their relationship was too quick. However, it was probably the more compelling and emotional read of the book. Straight up Soldier Suki Reece is running from an abusive ex-boyfriend. She is hiding out in a cabin her good friend Tara helped her secure. Tara, worried about Suki, asks Mac McDonough to check in on her and make sure she is safe. Mac is recovering from a bad leg wound on his latest military mission. When he gets to the cabin he finds that Suki can hold her own. Straight up Soldier is a slight change up, now the hero is a military man instead of a cowboy but he is still just as alpha as the other two heroes. Suki can go toe to toe against this big man and brings him to his knees a time or two. The nice thing about these stories is they are short and sweet. The men are alpha heroes who like to take control in the bedroom and make sure their woman stay safe. The stories are fun and entertaining, although, there are similarities between the men's personalities and the fun that is had in the bedroom. If you like the first story, than I can't see why you wouldn't enjoy the rest.
