The strongest bonds are the ones unseen…

Businesswoman Skylar Ellison never intended to get tangled up with a sexy Wyoming cowboy—let alone conceive a baby with him in the parking lot of a honky-tonk. When it appears her baby daddy has taken off for greener pastures, Skylar pulls up her bootstraps and carries on alone.

Rancher Kade McKay


The strongest bonds are the ones unseen…

Businesswoman Skylar Ellison never intended to get tangled up with a sexy Wyoming cowboy—let alone conceive a baby with him in the parking lot of a honky-tonk. When it appears her baby daddy has taken off for greener pastures, Skylar pulls up her bootstraps and carries on alone.

Rancher Kade McKay is knocked for a loop when he returns home after a year on the range and finds out he’s the father of a three-month-old baby girl. When Skylar refuses to marry him, Kade grits his teeth, moves in and plays house by her rules to prove he’s a man in for the long haul.

Despite Skylar’s insistence they are to remain strictly parenting partners for baby Eliza, their old passions flare hot as a prairie fire, spurring Kade to demand total sexual surrender from the headstrong woman. Skylar willingly submits her body to the hot-blooded cowboy, but she’s hesitant to hand Kade the reins to her heart.

Can Kade convince Skylar the wicked sex games aren’t a temporary distraction? Or will he have to break out the ropes to show her he wants to be tied to her…forever?

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“I enjoy the family-ness of this series…the fierceness of protecting each other no matter what…Ms. James’ catches the “cowboy” attitude and way of talking perfectly…when I’m in the mood for some Levi-wearin’, buck-broncin’, grinnin’ cowboys after reading this latest Rough Rider installment!”

—The Good, The Bad, and The Unread

“From the tempting cover to the final page, Tied Up, Tied Down is one terrific read…The scenes with Kade and Eliza will bring a warm feeling to your heart and the scenes with Kade and Skylar will bring that warm feeling a little lower! This story touches all your emotions and lightly deals with issues real people face every day…”

—The Romance Studio

“TIED UP, TIED DOWN is…a perfect blend of endearing romance with super hot love scenes that leave the reader cheering for a happily ever after between Skyler and Kade. I love the characters in the Rough Rider series and look forward to future works from Ms. Lorelei James. TIED UP, TIED DOWN is not to be missed.”

—Romance Junkies

“Tied Up, Tied Down is Ms. James’ newest release in her ongoing Rough Rider series, and it’s just as fast paced, sexy and fun as its predecessors. Kade is a good guy, and he’s also a down-to-earth hottie who has turned into a one-woman man. He’s also a man who is willing to do whatever is necessary to take care of the two girls who mean the most to him…Skylar and Eliza… This well-written western romance pulls at the heart-strings, but ultimately it offers hope for the future, making it an excellent read for anyone.”

—Literary Nymphs

“I found Tied Up, Tied Down to be exceptionally well written. The flames between Skylar and Kade leapt off each page…I would recommend this book to every reader who loves strong, sexy cowboys!”

—Fallen Angels Reviews

“Cowboys and more Hot and sexy Cowboys…in this steamy read from Ms. James…Stubborn men and even more stubborn women make this a story that will have you laughing, crying, swooning and panting all at once, taking you on an exciting traipse thru cowboy country, one you will not want to miss.”

—Coffee Time Romance

“Lorelei James is the complete package. Characters, plot, emotion, heat—even laughter—it’s all there. One question I might have is that how can one family be so front-end loaded with hot, charming cowboys? Answer: Who cares? Count me in as a member of the James Gang!”

—Erotic Romance Writers, Recommended Read

“TIED UP, TIED DOWN is full of passion and romance. The conflict is all internal as the lovers settle their differences. Kade shows Skylar just how good a cowboy can be with his rope. Readers who enjoy a little bondage will love this book…a sexy read.”

I read this one first.. It is the 4th book. I am now in the process of reading the first ones and then the rest of the series and then read them again. For a series of books based around explicit and mind visually graphic sex, the stories are phanominal. There actually is a story and a blooming romance and you feel it. I say ridem Cowboy !!!!

Love this series and Kade was a breath of fresh air with his good guy qualities. You find yourself really getting into this character. Definately not ready to give up this series yet!

I loved this book...Kade is an amazing sweet man who is HOT HOT HOT. I love his loving sweetness to Eliza and Skylar but also his demand for those juicy naughty moments too. Great combination

This is the first one in the series that I have read. At first I was a little shocked by the author's "descriptive" language but didn't take long to get into it!I couldn't read it fast enough. Kade is an absolute dream!! I can't wait to read another one!

This one might be my favorite in the series so far. Kade is a dream come true the honorable one who does the right thing, and the loving patient one who doesn't give up. Skylar is also one of my favorite female characters, however sometimes I wanted to yell at her to just say yes, but she gets it together finally. The reuinon was a little daunting, trying to keep up with the names is a task, but it gets a little easier with each book. The love scenes are hot, the dialogue is great, and each character is well developed, and comes to life. After a while you just want to jump on your horse and ride out to the ranch and meet the Mckay's. The only thing I HATE about this series, is the wait for the next one. Can't wait for more.

For the actual plot of the story, this was way too long. It got boring waiting on something to change. Sex scenes were good but I am getting tired of the man always making the woman submissive. Why can't weread about a woman being equal o dominant in the sex category. Seems sexist to me.

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.

Okay if you're following this series you know that Kade was dumped in Cowgirl Up and Ride by Skylar after going out with her a few month by pretending to be his twin brother Kane. Well this is his story and it is heart braking to find out that he didn't know he was a daddy and that his baby was a couple months old. In this story as much as Skylar wants to be with him she is afraid he's with her out of a sense of obligation. What she doesn't know is that his pretending to be his brother to be with her was in a way his way of wanting to be with her. As the story progress and she realizes this she is torn between wanting to believe her heart and wanting to believe her mind, which tells her to finish all between them. I think is sad when someone wants to be happy but there is always something impeding them. No matter if is their own self.

Rough Riders are a great series of books by Lorelei James. We get to meet Kade McKay, the rock of the McKay/West cousins, who keeps the secrets of all. He meets Skylar and hope to get the home & family he has always wanted, except he lets her believe he is his twin Kane. Fun to find out what happens. Thanks Lorelei & Good Writing

4.25* This is the fourth book in the Rough Riders series and so far my favorite one. I love Kade McKay and Skylar Ellison. Kade always felt like the interchangeable McKay and no one really knew the real him. Skylar never wanted to give up the control in her life to another person. When Kade comes home a year after Skylar and his break up to find out he's a father he's hellbent on making Skylar see they are meant to be together. This is a great story about mistaken identity and an unplanned pregnancy.

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.
