Rough Riders, Book 14

Arizona businessman and long-lost McKay love child Gavin Daniels has been awarded sole custody of his teenage daughter Sierra for one year. In order to steer Sierra back on track after a brush with the law, he pulls up stakes and heads to Wyoming, looking for support from his ranching family...even if he isn’t sure where they fit in the McKay dynamic. He’s prepared for every contingency with the move: the less-than-enthusiastic response from his daughter, learning to run his corporation remotely, but he’s thrown for a loop when his new housemate, Rielle, is a whole lot sexier, funnier and sassier than he remembered.

Rielle Wetzler has finally overcome the stigma of having hippie parents and being a young single mother. In the two years since she sold her ailing B&B to Gavin Daniels, she’s become financially stable running the homespun businesses she loves. But now Gavin is in Sundance to claim the house that’s rightfully his. Although Rielle knew this day would come, she isn’t prepared to leave the home she built for herself and her now-grown daughter. And to further complicate matters, her long-dormant libido is definitely not ready to live with this newly buff Gavin—who isn’t a cowboy, but has the take-charge attitude to prove he’s all McKay.

Sharing a roof, their troubles and their triumphs is too much temptation, and before long, Gavin and Rielle are sharing a bed. But sharing their hearts and lives forever? That’s a whole ’nother ball of wax.

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.

    Loved It

    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.

    Gavin and rielle

    This is book 14 in the rough rider series. It is Gavin and Rielle's story. I think Ms. Loreigh covered it because she knows no one would buy it. I hate Rielle after her actions in the last story. Ugggghhhhhh

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

    Cant WAIT for more

    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!

    Not like any other McKay…and still ohhhhh so good! ~Under the Covers

    After Tell’s story, which was a bit younger in tone and totally bad boy McKay, it was a very nice change of pace to read about Gavin. Gavin is the long lost McKay brother. Vi had given him up for adoption without telling anyone that she was pregnant when she was 16. And now after Gavin is 40+, he comes back in their lives. He is a McKay by blood, but so not your typical McKay by actions. He’s divorced, he has a teenage daughter, and he’s bought the ranch next to Ben that used to be owned by Rielle. Now that he wanted to bring their daughter to Wyoming to help her with some behavior issues, he will have to adjust to country living, McKay relatives, and living with Rielle for a while.

    Rielle was an amazing and so strong heroine. I have to give her props because she’s devoted her life to her daughter, even after she had gotten pregnant at 16 and being raised by hippie parents in a commune. She has made something of her life with strength and hard work. And she’s always put work and being a mother first. So that means relationships with guys have not been a big priority in her life. It’s hard to believe that, in her forties and with her daughter away to college, she’s just now developing feelings and attraction for the first guy in what could be the first time in her life.

    Gavin, on the other hand, was just amazing. In a way he reminded me of Jack (Keely’s husband) and has a lot of the qualities I liked in him. I liked the fact that he comes back to Wyoming slimmer and taking better care of himself. It wasn’t love at first sight with Gavin and Rielle. They’ve both made some changes and now that attraction is blooming. I find that a big part of it was how different Rielle was from Gavin’s ex wife. She might not be the refined woman he is used to deal with, but that’s exactly the type of woman he needs.

    Gavin and Rielle as a couple were great. Both had their own insecurities. They had to deal with the issues that single parents have to, even though their kids were not so little. With one living with them, they had to have a certain amount of discretion in their encounters, but they made it work. Still building their relationship in a way that progressed slowly and was very believable, as well as dealing with both their kids and family life. Their chemistry was off the charts! I just wish we would’ve gotten more details on the sex in the office against the windows. *waggles eyebrows* I have to say though, at times I felt Rielle could’ve been more involved and shouldn’t have put so much distance between her and the relationship they were building and the rest of Gavin’s life.

    Then there’s the kids. I cannot wait to see what happened between Dalton and Rory. I’m biting my nails in anticipation! Then Sierra, Gavin’s daughter. I really loved her character up until the very last bit of the book. When you read it you will know why at that point I wanted to bash her head against the wall. But, typical teenage behavior I guess. Of course there is Boone West *sigh*. Is it bad to say I have a crush on a teenager? Well, I do! Are we going to get a Sierra and Boone’s story? Pretty please with a cherry on top! I also enjoyed all the McKay interactions and bits and pieces of their family life, as usual.

    This book was not like any other McKay…and still ohhhh so good. I think it’s a nice change of pace in the series. Even though it’s bittersweet because we are one book closer to the end.

    “If it looks like a McKay, acts like a McKay…then it is a McKay.”

    “Did you happen to bring a condom with you?”
    “Nope. I brought two.”

    Another series I am crazy about.  This installment is different

    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.

    Gavin Daniels was adopted by another family because Vi Bennett,

    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.

    Good book

    This is the story of Daria of Hadley Green in England, and Jamie, Laird of Dundavie in Scotland. Daria travels to Scotland to deliver some money to her grandmother and ends up finding the laird shot and unconscious in her grandmother's guest bed. How did he get there and why is her grandmother acting so oddly? He begins to improve and eventually his family finds him. He forces Daria to return to his castle with him as collateral against the money that Daria's grandmother stole from his family. But, will she be a hostage or his guest? As they begin to spend time together and their feelings toward each other start to change, will they be able to overcome the complications working against them? Interesting plot, good character development, 2+ steam.

    This is the 14th book in the Rough Riders series by Lorelei Jame

    This is the 14th book in the Rough Riders series by Lorelei James. I have one thing to say about Ms. James, She KNOWS Cowboys! Oh my, even when they aren't cowboys, but instead are ranchers or cops or - for heavens sake - businessmen, she KNOWS Cowboys. This series tells the story of the McKays. It spans all the children of 4 brothers, and by this book - is getting ready to get started on the grandchildren of those 4 original McKay brothers. I think that eventually I wouldn't mind seeing Ms. James go back and write the brothers stories as well.

    As with all the other Rough Rider books, this story is set in Wyoming and many of the characters from the other novels make an cameo appearance somewhere in the story. I would NOT start with this book. With just the shear number of McKays, especially the ones whose first name begins with a C, will have you so confused you will want to give up. So do yourself a favor, go back and start with book 1, Long Hard Ride. Be warned, these books are erotic romance. They can get down right raunchy. But, they also have a romance and an HEA and tell a story full of real grit, sweat and muscle. If you don't want to immediately move to Wyoming and stake a claim on one of these cowboys, you might just want to check for a pulse. 

    I gave this book 3 stars on Goodreads. It is a solid story, but just didn't speak to me as much as some of the others have. Maybe it was his teenage daughter being a real pain in the ass, or her grown daughter being a jealous twit. Or maybe it was the fact that they just both seemed to move at a snail's pace around each other. I am still looking forward to the next book and can't wait to get my hands on it!
