(Hot Cowboy Nights, #1)

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Cover Blurb:

In rural Montana…

Wade Knowlton is a hardworking lawyer who’s torn between his small-town Montana law practice and a struggling family ranch. He’s on the brink of exhaustion from trying to save everybody and everything, when gorgeous Nicole Powell walks into his office. She’s a damsel in distress and the breath of fresh air he needs.

Even the lawyers wear boots…

Nicole Powell is a sassy Southern girl who has officially sworn off cowboys after a spate of bad seeds-until her father’s death sends her to Montana and into the arms of a man who seems too good to be true. Her instincts tell her to high tail it out of Montana, but she can’t resist a cowboy with a slow hand…

♥♥♥♥♥♥

The wide open spaces of Montana’s ranching country are a long way from the decadence of Georgian England but Victoria Vane has made an impressive entry into the world of Contemporary Western Romance with the first book in her Hot Cowboy Nights series.

MY THOUGHTS:

Wade –

What can I say about Wade? One word comes to mind—totally irresistable! Handsome, old fashioned, charming, attentive, generous, kind and sexy – who wouldn’t fall for him. Those crystal blue eyes, the disarmingly boyish grin and the cute dimple on his chin only added to his appeal.

He is so self-sacrificing as well…not only a successful lawyer but also working tirelessly to keep the Flying K family cattle ranch afloat when he really wants is to cut loose and live his own life.

I knew there must be something more to cause such bad blood between Wade and his older brother, Dirk, other than their feud over the sale of the ranch.

Nikki –

Nikki came from a dysfunctional family and learned to be self-sufficient. She likes to be in control of her life and hates feeling helpless or having to rely on others.

After several bad experiences, she has a deep distrust of cowboys whom she views as ‘notoriously unreliable, generally unfaithful and rarely capable of settling down’. She refuses to let her emotions overrule her good sense ever again.

She is also coping with her changing feelings towards the father she hardly knew and the scene in her father’s cabin, where she finds his letters, is very moving.

From the moment they meet, the sexual tension between Wade and Nikki positively sizzles. I love their verbal sparring:

Wade spun towards his office. ”Help yourself to the phone and anything else while I get cleaned up.” He paused again on the threshold. “Of course, you’re welcome to use my office if you need greater privacy.” He added over his shoulder with a look of devilment. “Or in the event any wild impulse overtakes you while I shower.”

He went to work on his shirt button. His collar was soon wide open revealing a generous show of muscular chest that made her hands itch to rip it off him. She averted her gaze and curled her itchy hands by her sides.

“Have no fear , cowboy, “ Nikki replied in a tone meant to disguise the warm flush that had come over her.” “I corralled all my wild impulses long ago.

“Did you now?” He still stood in the doorway, head cocked. “Somehow, I think you may have missed a few strays.”

Of course, Nikki’s mistrust of cowboys causes conflict between them and I did get a little frustrated that it took her so long to realise that Wade was the real thing and worth grabbing and keeping! I loved the fact that Wade was sure that Nikki was the one for him and he was always there for her.

There are two deliciously wicked scenes that were most memorable…one where Nikki gets Wade all aroused with her suggestive talk about peaches and cream and another where the discussion about bulls and cows takes on obvious sexual connotations.

HOLY SMOKE! Ms Vane certainly knows how to write scorching hot love scenes. I felt sure my iPad was going to melt on more than one occasion!

I was intrigued by Wade’s brother, Dirk…a man bearing a lot of scars both physical and emotional. I’m anticipating that his story in ROUGH RIDER is going to be full of angst.

Ms Vane ‘s descriptive writing enabled me to visualise the sweeping beauty of the Montana ranching country and I also appreciated the elements of realism she brings to the story, highlighting the daily struggles of the ranching community.

What did I think of Ms Vane’s venture in the world of Contemporary Western Romance?

Bring on those hot cowboys!

Excerpt:

He went to work on his shirt buttons. His collar was soon wide open revealing a generous show of muscular chest that make her hands itch to rip it off him. She diverted her gaze and curled her itchy hands by her sides.

“Have no fear, cowboy,” Nikki replied in a tone meant to disguise the warm flush that had come over her. “I corralled all my wild impulses long ago.”

“Did you, now?” He still stood in doorway, head cocked. “Somehow, I think you may have missed a few strays.”

“Maybe I need to make myself clearer. I have an aversion to cocky cowboys.”

Just keep telling yourself that, Nikki. Maybe if you repeat it often enough it’ll become true.

“Is that so?” His brows flew upward. “I can’t say I ever met a woman with an actual aversion to me.”

“Don’t take it personally. It’s nothing against you in particular, but to your type.”

“And what do you think you know about my type?”

“Since I don’t have a pole handy, enough to keep you at arms-length. Besides that, this whole line of conversation is entirely inappropriate in light of professional ethics, don’t you think? You are my attorney, after all.”

“Well, darlin’,” he scratched his unshaven jaw, “there’s a little hitch to that.”

“What do you mean? You said you’d help me.”

“And I will, but you can’t engage my professional services until I know who you are.”

“I’ve told you who I am!” she insisted.

“Sweetheart, I’m a lawyer, and according to the law, your claim don’t weigh without authentication.”

“Authentication?”

“Proof.”

“So what are you saying? That you don’t believe me?”

“I’m not saying that at all. Only that our professional relationship will commence once you get your I.D. In the interim,” His gaze slid over her in a way that threatened to melt her insides, “you’d best find yourself a nice, long, sturdy pole.”

If those covers don’t tempt you, then perhaps this excerpt from SLOW HAND might.
