She's a little bit country, and he's...not.

Arizona businessman and long-lost McKay love child Gavin Daniels has been awarded sole custody of his teenage daughter, Sierra. In order to steer her back on track after a brush with the law, he heads to Wyoming...even if he isn't sure where they fit in the McKay dynamic. But he's thrown for a loop when his new housemate, Rielle, is a whole lot sexier than he remembered.

Rielle Wetzler has finally overcome the stigma of having hippie parents and being a young single mother. But now Gavin is in Sundance to claim the house that's rightfully his. Rielle knew this day would come, but she isn't prepared to leave the home she built for herself. And to further complicate matters, her long-dormant libido is definitely not ready to live with this newly buff Gavin--who has the take-charge attitude to prove he's all McKay.

Sharing a roof is too much temptation, and before long, Gavin and Rielle are sharing a bed. But are they ready to share their hearts, lives and families forever?

Editorial Reviews

Warning: Contains a feisty, independent heroine who doesn't need a man to take care of her needs outside the bedroom, and a sweet, sexy and bossy hero who's up to the challenge of proving her wrong.

Yes Gavin and Ree. What a perfect pair! Loved them together as they don't fit with in with anyone. I particularly appreciate that the main characters are mature (40's). Nice to know romance and passion occurs after the age of 28! These people both had lots of issues to work through that were James handled well. I loved Sierra and Boone which was sweet, and something explosive was hinted at with Dalton and Rory. Can't wait for #15. This is one of the best series I read, and again I enjoyed it.

Rielle is not a very likable character and besides some sexual stuff they had zero chemistry.

I love love love this series!!!! One of my favorite authors. I love that every book keeps me wanting more. I really liked that this book was about Gavin,a divorce dad and daughter, Sierra. Trying to start fresh with the family that gave him up for adoption. To see them all come together and make it work was great. I'm hoping that the next few books: Dalton and Roy, those two are a mystery. Then a book on Sierra waiting on Boone to come back to her. Please keep them coming!

Another series I am crazy about.  This installment is different in a lot of ways.  Gavin is the first born of Vi & Charlie McKay but was given up for adoption and just reconnected with his birth family 2 years ago.  A 40 something divorced businessman with a teenage daughter he is not your typical Rough Rider alpha hero.  Rielle is a self-sufficient single mother who is now an empty nester.  When she sold her B&B to Gavin she stayed on as caretaker while Gavin lived in Arizona.  Even in books past you could tell there was an attraction between the two.  Now Gavin is moving into the former B&B with his daughter Sierra and Rielle isn’t prepared for the change or to deal with the 'eality of living with a man she is so attracted to.   This book is proof that love and lust don’t stop just because you are a parent.  There are several back story lines going on that are probably (hopefully) setting up future books.  You can read this stand-alone but with a series this good go back and read them all.  I do often.

This book was different from the rest of the serie. Gavin was adopted and didn't grow up as a McKay so there is a little bit of a disconnect from him because he just know how to feel about the whole McKay bunch. Over time he he works through his issues with his family especially Vi, his mother. I wasnt a real big fan of Rielle from past stories, but you cant always hold a grudge on a character. I like seeing knowing her back story. She was sweet and understanding. She didnt put her two cents in when she could of. Now Sierra and Boone was so sweet. A youg freindship/romance that hope somewhere down the road get their own story because I loved the and it would be wonderful to fast forward a few year and see where they are now. I hope that Rory and Dalton have the next story because the few little tidbits that we got to read makesyou curious. I have a feeling that they would be an explosive pair to read.

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.

Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance When and where did you buy this ebook? 9-10-14 on my Nook. Did you finish it? Yes What was your first thought when it ended? Holy shizzballs, peoples! I forgot how explicit Lorelei’s books were! It’s been a very long time since I’ve read a title in her Rough Riders series and it showed when characters from the other books started popping up. I haven’t read ALL the books in the series, but I’ve read the majority of them. This series covers a whole town full of McKays and while I remember some of them, there are a few stories that I didn’t care to read because it involved BDSM or menage. I’m not into any of that. LOVED diving back in to McKay-West world and reading about the Gavin. I don’t remember which book he previously showed up in, but he was given up by the Mom McKay when she was a teenager. In one of the previous titles, he actually showed up to confront her. I loved catching up with the other members of the family, getting to know Gavin, and loving the idea of Rielle’s entrepreneurism (homemade honey, homemade bread, growing veggies and fruit, making/dying yarn, etc.). What I loved the most was how easy it was to read the different POVs–Gavin, Rielle, Rielle’s 24 yr old daughter, Rory, and Gavin’s 16 yr old daughter, Sierra–and not get lost. It was so well-done and the transitions so smooth, that I never wondered, “Okay, who the hell is talking right now?” To be honest, I’m a little jelly and hope that at some point doing my own writing, that I’ll be able to pull something like this off. As usual, the love scenes were on a FI-YAH and I’m hoping that Sierra and Boone eventually get their own story. Have you read anything else by Lorelei James? As mentioned above, I’ve read plenty. I’ve got two more of her titles on my Wish List and one in my Library that I’ll start reading next. What will you do now with this ebook? Archive it—Lendable

The ground was set for this coming together of city and country when Gavin Daniels purchased the land and dwelling owned by Rielle Wetzler to alleviate her financial hardship. But at the time Gavin had no interest in the property and was happy for Rielle to continue living there as a caretaker while he lived his life in Arizona. Two years later, Rielle, single mother of an adult daughter has become comfortable in her situation and is blown away when Gavin decides to move to Wyoming with his high-spirited teenager.  When sexual tension ignites and sparks fly between these polar opposites, there’s no way to prevent the effect is has on their daughters, their family and their own trust issues. Rielle is an amazing woman and Gavin is determined to make their life about more than work and putting their daughters first. I love a story about a mature couple getting a second chance at love.

Gavin Daniels was adopted by another family because Vi Bennett, an unwed mother, forced into this. Gavin reached out to his biological parents at the behest of his adopted mother's request. Gavin is unsure how to feel about his over flowing relatives. The final straw in getting to Gavin to move to Wyoming was Sierra getting in trouble with the law. Rielle "Ree" Wetzler is scrambling to move into different rooms since Gavin announced is moving to Wyoming. Ree has a deeply independent person and loves working the land because she finds peace in doing so. Ree is stunned by the changes she sees in Gavin even though she's made a few changes herself. Sierra is angry about being moved to Wyoming. Sierra is also a self-absorbed and entitlement teenager. Sierra meets Boone West can't stop thinking about him but it appears that he doesn't share the interest. Will Gavin or Ree make their feelings known? Will Sierra drive a wedge into budding relationship? Will Boone have a change of heart? Will Gavin accept his new family? Your answers await you in Gone Country. I'll be honest this book affected me deeply on so many levels. Being a child of divorce myself, I completely understand Gavin's point of view about his ex wife who'd rather be their daughter friend than a parent. Gavin sacrificed much of his happiness for Sierra's sake which enabled her to act like a spoiled brat. Rielle cannot fathom why Gavin would want to be with her yet is completely attracted to him. Gavin and Rielle faced many challenges in their relationship. I personally found their relationship to be real, down to earth, and most of all honest. I'm definitely looking forward to my next adventure in Rough Riders Series.

Lorelei James is a very consistent writer. Her books are entertaining and well written. You always get more than you expect with her books. If you haven't read anything by this author you really should! She is by far one of the best out there.
