The latest in the Covert Cowboys series features a wounded veteran trying to find his path as a civilian and a widow trying to hold on to her ranch. Perhaps the best in the series.

A story built around heay sex scenes. I skipped past the sex and that didn't leave many pages. Wasted my money.

HIGH COUNTRY HIDEOUT has the perfect mix of romance and intrigue. Angus and Reggie each stole my heart in their own way. Angus is a soldier who lost his leg in an IED explosion and is trying to find his place. Signing on to be an agent for Covert Cowboys, Inc. has given him the chance to feel useful again and Reggie, her son Tad and the rest of Fool’s Fortune, Colorado have made him whole. Reggie is an incredibly strong woman. She’s lost her husband the year before and is determined to work her ranch in order to pass it along to her son. That includes fighting off mining speculators and everyone else in the town that thinks she should sell it. Reggie is determined to do it on her own and is adamant that she doesn’t need the hunky cowboy recently hired to help her out. Their relationship played out beautifully. The romance was hot and sensual and I loved how both bruised and battered souls found solace together in spite of the dangerous mystery surrounding the ranch. This is my first read from the Covert Cowboys, Inc. series and can easily be read as a standalone. I really enjoyed the story and would recommend it to all romantic suspense fans. ***I was gifted an eBook copy from the publisher via Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.

James re-enters the world of CCI with a flash and flair that instantly drew me in. Her seamless narrative created a backdrop and intricate story that I found myself coming back to time and time again. Character and world building was intricate but slow for the first few chapters, and then the entire story picked itself up. I found myself equally interested in the suspense of the who-dun-it as in the chemistry between the main characters. Even better than the suspense of the tale was the characters who brought it forward. Both main characters here were genuine individuals that I found myself wanting to get to know better. Their pasts were full of the good and the bad. Seeing them come together was both heart-warming and enriching. At the same time, I loved how James didn’t make it easy, all the while developing the individuals that we met in quite unique ways. The dialogue was so natural. James really nails conversations in a way that brings her characters from good to great. I couldn’t help but be caught up in their interpersonal byplays. This is one of those novels that takes from the series that came before it while also standing completely on its own. James has created a suspenseful yet romantic tale that combines love, loss, redemption, and moving on with the wonders of ranch life. It’s a tale that I thoroughly enjoyed reading and that I will definitely be recommending to others. Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.

I really enjoyed this romantic suspense story by Elle James. Angus Ketchum thought after suffering a major injury on his last tour of duty his job options were extremely limited. He had always thought he would go back to ranching after he was out of the military, but now he was rethinking his life. Things change when he is recruited to protect Reggie Davis. Reggie is just trying to keep her ranch running so that when her son gets older he can have it, but the work is back breaking and a lot of strange things keep happening that she doesn't have time or the energy to worry about. When Angus shows up offering help on the ranch and is there when she needs him she finds trusting him the natural thing to do. Soon their relationship changes from just friends to so much more. I was given an ARC for an honest review. All conclusions are mine and mine alone.

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review... Loved so much!!! Could not put it down. Angus was in the Army and was injured, so he went to work as an undercover cowboy. His first assignment was the Last Chance Ranch working for Reggie Davis. Reggie has been having some problems on the ranch. Doesn't know who or what is causing them. Reggie doesn't know that Angus is undercover just thinks he's a new ranch hand. Angus gets a little surprise when he finds out that Reggie is a woman and a widow. Angus is put right to work and trouble is defiantly afoot. As they work side by side the romance builds and Angus must discover who is after Reggie before it is too late.

A great story with a strong hero and heroine and an HEA. This is the 7th book in the Covert Cowboys, Inc. series but you won’t be lost at all if you haven’t read any of the others. This is a complete story with an HEA. Reggie lost her husband a year ago to an accident and was left with their young son to raise. She is determined to hold on to the ranch her husband inherited so it can be passed down to their son. Angus lost most of his right leg while serving his country. As a result of his injury he feels less of a man and is surprised when he is hired by CCI. His first assignment is to act as a ranch hand for Reggie while at the same time providing protection without her knowledge. There have been too many “accidents” on the ranch and her foreman, CW, recruited help from his friend Hank Derringer, the owner of CCI. This was an engaging and suspenseful story. It was quick paced and it wasn’t until near the end that I realized who the bad guy was. Elle James writes entertaining stories and I enjoyed reading this one very much! I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Angus is a great hero, honorable, loyal, solid man, who doesn't use his disability to his advantage, but goes forward with his life despite it, with his dog, Ranger by his side. Reggie is determined to keep the ranch going, to give the legacy to her son, the way her husband would have wanted it to be. She is stubborn, and independent, to the point she comes off a bit prickly at times. The attraction between Reggie and Angus is immediate, but not necessarily welcomed, since Angus doesn't want to burden a woman with his disability, and Reggie is still mourning for her late husband who died only a year ago. But the chemistry and attraction is strong, and when left alone in peril, the pull for each other is too much to fight against. There's not only danger from the series of escalating sabotage at the ranch, but the nature seems to be against them, as they are fighting to keep the ranch in working order against snow storms. The story has a great deal of danger, and potentially deadly situation, a tense atmosphere, and several suspects for the crimes committed. The romance is fast, the attraction is believable, the commitment and devotion understandable in a such a short time when you look at the personality of the characters. The secondary characters in the story are interesting and often provide moments of humor in the tale. I liked the story, it is well built and engaging, mixed with different elements of ranch life, suspense, charming characters, and new chances in life ~ Four Spoons

Good suspense. Plenty of drama, action, love scenes with characters that are interesting. This is the 5th book of the Covert Cowboys, Inc but my first I have read in this series. Angus Ketchum was a ex-soldier. He was wounded and has some self image issues. He has been hired as a body guard, cowboy. Though Reggie doesn't know it. He grew up on a ranch in Texas. Angus has a dog called Ranger. Reggie Davis is a widow. She is independent. Reggie is working the ranch and determined that her 5 year old Tad will inherit the ranch. I like Tad. He is a cute kid who loves to play with dogs. There are attacks on Reggie and things are going wrong on the ranch. At first seams like accidents but someone thinks Reggie is in danger. When Angus appears on the ranch things start to escalate in danger. I think Reggie and Angus turn into each other awfully fast considering where they are in life. But the whole story happens in a real short time frame. The setting is Fool's Fortune, Colorado. On a ranch in the mountains. Overall I enjoyed reading High Country Hideout. I would like to read more books in the Covert Cowboys, Inc. See how & why the company was formed.. I was given High Country Hideout to read for free from Harlequin and Net Galley and I agreed to give honest review in turn.
