All it takes is one night to change a cowboy’s life…

Barrel racer Celia Lawson knows better than to tangle with bull rider Kyle Gilchrist. The sexy cowboy’s love ‘em and leave ‘em ways have earned him a reputation on the rodeo circuit, and he’s always seen her as his best friend’s kid sister. But after one wild, tequila-fueled night, Celia wakes up to find out she’s gotten herself hitched—to a man she never should have married!

When Celia insists on an annulment, Kyle has no good reason to say no—except he isn’t ready to let go of his new bride. But then Kyle inherits a sprawling Wyoming ranch, and seizes the opportunity to enlist Celia’s help. She agrees to lend a hand—with two conditions: He has to get up to speed as a rancher within six months; then they’ll get a divorce. And their marriage will be in name only.

Kyle gives in to Celia’s demand, yet he's ready to prove to her he has what it takes to turn their one night rodeo into a lifetime of love….

I so enjoyed this book. The story was such a moving story of family and love. I know that might seem strange, as the book is under the Romance-Erotica category. This author balances the "Hot Scenes" into the storyline so well. You get invested in Kyle and Celia story by the end of the first chapter. It was great that all the characters in the other books in this series, were really in this story, and not just as a passing word. You got to find out the latest on Hank and Lanie, Abe and Janie, Renner and Tiernery and Bran and Harper.

Of this series, the second book, featuring Harper, and this one really shine. James really captures the little moments so when Kyle is fussing with the DVD cords. You can just feel what every character is going through as Kyle and Celia navigate this new chapter in their life. James uses all the little romance plot devices....the quicky vegas wedding, the out- of- the-blue inheritance, the pride crisis....but it is all layered beautifully with complex emotions and a life struggle. Also Kyle is such a sexy guy....not normally the type to appeal to me, but that is just a testament to James' storytelling ability. Read this one. I would skip Coralled and the one with Renner and Tierney unless you justfind you are hungry for backstory. They lack the emotional depth.

I have read Lorelei James books since I found her first one. I loves her books, they are steamy and romantic. I highly recommend this series but you have to read them all in order to completely enjoy the story line.

I have loved this entire series, but I was really looking forward to finding out Kyle's Story! The wait was worth it, this story starts grabbing your attention and doesn't let it go. Hot scenes and great dialect. Please keep it coming!!!

Best Blacktop Cowboy Book yet! I bought this yesterday and pretty much put everything else to the side to read it. It was SO GOOD! Lorelei has done it again with her cowboys. Kyle was simply too hard to resist. I couldn't put the book down until I read the last page! Of course, I've been waiting for Kyle's book since I read the first Blacktop Cowboy book, Corralled. So I had pretty high expectations for this one, and let me tell you....Lorelei blew every one of those out of the water. Celia has been present in all of the books and she seemed a little distant. I liked her, but I always felt like there was more going on. There was. In One Night Rodeo you find it all out. She turned out to be a woman I think we could all relate to in one way or another. Celia didn't change so much as she grew and showed all sides of her personality. I loved the back and forth between her and Kyle, it's been present from the start, but in this book it was different. As I read the book I was entranced by their relationship, I felt like I was right there with them. Kyle is one heck of a cowboy. He's a bull rider, but has always wanted to own a ranch. Now he gets his chance. If you liked Kyle before when he was cocky and sometimes a jerk, then you're going to love his sweet and vulnerable side. That was probably the most surprising part of this book for me. Kyle's romantic side seemed so natural, while at the same time you knew as you read that it was something he pretty much only showed to Celia. It drew me in and wouldn't let go! There is a scene that rivals the fainting goats from Lorelei James's Rough Rider series. When you read it, if you don't laugh out loud I would be surprised. It's by far one of my favorite scenes in any book I've read. Humor is very present in One Night Rodeo, and considering the history between Celia and Kyle it was expected. Lorelei didn't leave out the emotional tug though, at one point Kyle was being a pigheaded male and I wanted to both shake some sense in him and hold him close. I could go on and on about this book, but it's better for you to just go buy it and read it. You don't have to read the other 3 books to understand this one...although I would recommend that you do because they are really good as well!!

After aggravating each other for years as children, Kyle and Celia had it down pat as adults. Trouble is, somewhere along the way, feelings changed between them. Now, after a night of drunken revelry, they end up married. Circumstances make sense for them to go with the flow. More circumstances make it better for them to stay married, for a time. Even more circumstances make them fall even more for each other. Finally, when it seems they are on the same wavelength, the bottom drops out. Neither expected this to work out, but the heat and feelings between them won't be denied, and who are they to turn away?

Any book Lorelei James writes is worthy of 5 stars and this is no exception.

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.

I really love Lorelei James writing style. Her characters have such deep layers - don't be fooled by first impressions. This is a 6 book series and I loved each one.

Kyle is my favorite blacktop cowboy! All through the early books, I kept hoping he'd get a story of his own and it shines! Thanks Lorelei!

I have fallen in love with these characters in the previous books and I loved watching them realize they truly loved each other. Once again Lauren Dane does not disappoint.

Celia Lawson is married and she doesn't remember any details. Kyle Gilchrist is very happy about the marriage and is willing to fight to keep Celia. After he inherits a ranch he asks Celia to stick around for 6 months to help out and teach him how to ranch. She agrees and he tried everything to get her to stay. Very passionate read. Some erotic sexy parts but the passion pulls you in more.
