Rawhide and Roses

( 18 )

Overview

She's all roses...

Playing good sport to appease her best friend was one thing, but sophisticated Kim Martin was hardly equipped for a Colorado camping trip. Especially when their mountain guide was a rough-edged cowboy who was as untamed as the wilderness. His outdoors style might jump-start some women but a strictly indoors woman like Kim found him - almost resistible.

He's rough-and-ready rawhide...

Especially when their mountain guide was a rough-edged cowboy who was as untamed as the wilderness.

Thad Winchester's patience for city women was wearing as thin as the seat of his jeans. But there was something about Kim that was putting his hard-and-fast don't-touch rule to the test. The plucky blonde was just the woman to share his Flying W. Ranch. All Thad had to do was bring out the wildflower in the refined beauty, and convince her that he was her man. Bar nothing.

Meet the Author

Romance novelist Maddie James bounces between contemporary, historical, and paranormal worlds, as she pens stories within, and frequently crossing, a variety of romantic genres. With 30+ titles in print, under three pen names, she feels fortunate to spend her days working with some of the quirkiest characters around-those in her head, and in her life. She lives quietly with her muses, Calliope and Clio, who most days masquerade as four-legged furry creatures. She often laments that her cats have become her children, and she has become her mother.

Such is life. And life, such fodder for books. Que sera, sera.

Among her work, she pens the popular Matchmaking Chef series and is a co-author for Ladies of Legend books. To learn more about The Matchmaking Chef series, visit http://www.suziecooks.com, or the Ladies of Legend books, visit http://www.legendtennessee.com

    Jillie and Kim go on a trail ride that Jillie found out about fr

    Jillie and Kim go on a trail ride that Jillie found out about from Mack, a cowboy Jillie is enamored with.  On the ride, Jillie comes up with an idea of going on a 12 day pack trail by taking places of two guests who have cancelled.  Since neither of the women have ridden before, this is not a good idea.  But Jillie wants to be with Mack so she talks Kim into going. Thad is Mack's partner and doesn't want the women to go on the trail but he knew they needed the money so he agreed.

    Not only did Kim lie about knowing how to ride, she is a city woman who looks down on cowboys (anyone from the country)  and always goes after what she wants, never backing down whether she is right or wrong. Thad is even more stubborn so they don't get along at all. Poor Thad is attracted to Kim but is determined to live by his professional ethics of not getting involved with any of the guests so instead of letting Kim know how he feels about her, he is very nasty and critical of Kim. It made me wonder how they would get through the trail without killing each other.

    The description of the country was so clear that I could picture the mountains and streams easily. I really liked the characters, especially Kim and Thad. I couldn't imagine them getting together and was impressed with the way the author made it work out. Kim's best friend, Jillie, was a fun but manipulative person.

    One thing that didn't work for me in this story was that Thad or Mack couldn't tell that Kim had no riding experience as soon as she arrived even though she said she did.  An experienced rider can tell at a glance if someone knows their way around horses. Because of this, I struggled through the first trail ride.  I just ignored that part thinking that I didn't enjoy it because I was a riding instructor/trail guide and know it just wouldn't have happened that way.

    This was one of the books I won this book in the Unforgettable Heroes Box Set.

    Sweet

    Kim and Thad's story is sweet and takes you through their inner battles of their attraction towards each other and how a relationship could work. This story is 503 pages and worth reading.

    Cowboy versus City Slicker! I loved it!

    Review by JoAnne: Maddie James does it again. This time it's a book with a cowboy vs. city slicker romance that drew you in immediately. Most of the story takes place in Colorado - the home of the cowboy/rancher. Occasionally there is mention of Kentucky where the city slicker hails from. There are twists and turns throughout as we've come to expect from the author. There is also lots of loving and beautiful scenery that is easy to visualize along with angst and determination or stubbornness on both Thad and Kim's part. The ending is what you hope for but once again the path is anything but straight to get there and it was totally unexpected how it was presented. I would have loved a few more chapters to see how Thad and Kim were able to mesh their lives together as a couple. I recommend not only this book but also suggest you add Maddie James to your to be read pile. I've enjoyed all three books of hers that I have so far read and plan to read others soon.

    Favorite Quote: Between panting breaths, pounding hearts, and a mingling of lips and tongues, Kim managed only seconds of lucidity. She was kissing Thad! And she was kissing him back more fervently than she'd ever in her life returned a kiss.

    Good Reading

    In all my life I will never understand men! Why is it that they just can't come out with what they want? Are we all supposed to have daily psychic moments in order to live happily with them?

    In Rawhide and Roses, Kim Martin and her best friend Jillie take a few days away for rest and relaxation, however, Jilly is already smitten with cowboy Mack. In a little game of hide and deceit, Jilly manages to get herself and Kim on a pack trail along with Mack, his partner Thad and several others. Not a bad idea if you know what you are doing, which Kim does not.

    Enter owner and pack leader Thad Winchester who has an instant attraction to Kim but decides to make her totally miserable because of his professional ethics of not mixing business with pleasure. Typical man!! His criticism and foul temper are the only signals he is giving out. And Kim...well, she is hooked. How in the world will they make it through twelve days of rough terrain, foul moods and strenuous work without killing one and another? Thad Winchester spends most of his time denying what it is he really wants and Kim Martin spend most of her time trying to make him admit what he wants.

    Kim and Thad are sexy, stubborn people who need to stop wasting time and get back to what is important in life. You understand the emotional tug, the wanting and the frustration on Kim's part and you want to scream at Thad for his relentlessness in sticking to his guns and holding his feeling too close.

    This is just an entertaining and fun way to spend some time. Maddie James is such an excellent writer and her descriptions and dialogue make every adventure even more exciting. This one is a keeper!
