Seeing as how the 'Timing' series is one of my all-time favorites and I've read the two books currently in the series many times over, you can understand my thrill when news that they were being re-released along with gorgeous new covers hit me. Rand and Stefan have always been a part of my favorite couples list and 'After the Sunset' is set two years into their relationship so I get an even better feel of how they are on a day to day basis. “Just because you live on a ranch doesn’t mean you can ride a horse.” “Rand—” “Stef.” His smile was big and wicked and made his eyes glitter. “Baby—” “Don’t call me baby, and I can ride a horse, Rand.” “Correction: you can ride your horse because you basically raised her after her mama passed, but any other horse would not allow you to just sit there and do nothing.” I love Stef. I'm pretty sure it's obvious but I thought I'd say it again. Even with all of his quirks and his continuing insecurity that somehow, someday, Rand is just going to decide he has to leave, Rand is crazy in love with the man. Considering Rand is one of the most alpha (non paranormal) men I've ever met - like not many steps above caveman - being loved by him is something we could all use. Unfortunately in this day and age, most non-fiction men like that are abusers. The first book in this series dealt with the four days of whirlwind romance that culminated in Rand and Stef falling in love. I got the opportunity to meet some of Rand's family outside his mom and sister, but in this book I got a whole look at family dynamics and some dishonest shenanigans coming from Rand's uncles (his deceased dad's brothers), and a couple of cousins (misled saps), in their attempt to get some grazing land rights back that belong to Rand. I'm not going into the whole situation because you have to read it to believe it, but take my word for it when I say Rand's extended family doesn't know what hits them when they have to deal with Stef. I'm just going to tantalize you with a few peeks at the goings-on that Stef gets up to while Rand is off helping a cousin. There's a rodeo, you see, and the Red Diamond has to participate in order to keep those grazing rights I mentioned earlier (which is partly how the uncles thought to screw Rand over) and so Stef takes some hands and goes. You're picturing this, aren't you? Stef helps run the bachelor charity auction and, well, he's in his element, and that's enough about that. He jumps into the ring after an enraged bull has charged Glenn, Rand's cousin, with no regard for his own safety to protect Glenn from getting squished. Oh, Stef is SO lucky that Rand isn't there. And that's all I'm telling. Believe me, there's plenty more. I really can never get enough of Rand and Stefan. This is such an incredible story and there are so many revelations at the end that it just about makes my eyes cross. I'm beyond thrilled that the author decided to write Glenn's story and I'm really looking forward to it. I'd be lying though if I didn't admit that part of my enthusiasm is because I want to see my two favorite guys again. Thank you, Mary, I love these men and the books!

Reviewed by Annie and posted at Under The Covers Book Blog The sequel to Mary Calmes’ Timing is just as fun and sexy as the first. After two years of being with his hunky rancher, Stefan Joss is feeling quite lucky. He is now teaching at a community college but something still nags at him. He doesn’t feel completely comfortable here and as a safety net, he wants a way out in case Rand decides against him. As Rand works on his empire, he wants to keep Stefan a little more close to home, involving him in the details that make his life so hard and rewarding at the same time. So as Stefan and Rand deal with this very realistic situations and emotions, readers develop a strong connection to their characters. The problem for them is not their love, but how will their lives fit together now that they are a team. Mary Calmes pens a very charming story for these characters. While less complicated than her other books, that doesn’t mean that the emotions are less developed. Calmes spends a considerable amount of time expressing Stefans wants and dreams in a way that makes him seem happy but also wishful for something more. I enjoyed watching how Rand and Stefan got true their happily-ever-after. It really cemented their relationship for me. As always, Calmes infuses her books with some comedy and good-natured teasing. This is generally my favorite parts of the book. I find that I can read the characters interactions forever so that’s a testament to Calmes’s character personalities as well as her ability to write good dialogue. It’s just so easy to fall in love with Mary Calmes’ books.
