Hello, and thank you for having me here today to tell you why I love the Rough Riders Series. First let me give you a bit of background. About 2 yrs ago my sister-in-law came to me and said “My all time favorite book is LONG HARD RIDE by Lorelei James. It is a cowboy ménage and extremely good” Well, of course, my curiosity got the best of me and I told her to bring it over. This having been the third romance I have ever read in my life, I was a little worried but very excited.

Oh and I am extremely glad she let me borrow it. I read it in one day and absolutely fell in love. Colby and Channing grabbed me from the very beginning. It wasn’t only them two though; it was the entire family and world that I fell in love with. I have got to say that I think I will always have a soft spot in my heart for Colby and Channing because they started the series but when I think about the series as a whole, I really do just like them all. The setting that Lorelei sets her stories in is so real that it makes me feel like I could hop on a plane and visit the McKays. The family dynamics are real, the problems are real, and the emotion is so intense that you can’t help but feel it yourself. Plus did I mention that they are HOT, HOT, HOT.
SHOULDA BEEN A COWBOY has always stuck out for me because I am a sucker for a tortured hero and Cam was definitely tortured. I love how Domini was so incredibly shy but yet was able to see Cam for what he was and give him exactly what he needed. The way that they came together to fight their demons together, struck me as something extremely special. I love the scene where Cam does the three legged race with Ky so he won’t be without a partner. It is so sweet that even though he struggled his pride allowed him to help Ky out.
And then there is BRANDED AS TROUBLE and Colt. He was also tortured but in a different way. We watched his downfall and then got to see him pick himself up again. I commend India for helping him through his time of trouble and I think she is one kick ass chick. I love how they work together to fight the addiction and the support that they show each other is amazing.
I also love COWGIRL UP AND RIDE mainly because AJ not only saved herself for Cord but accepted him as a package deal.
This is the conversation between Colt and India in Branded as Trouble
“ I wish you were wearin’ a dress”
“ I wish you were wearing a condom.”
“ Holly Hell, India Blue Ellison, are you an ornery woman.”
“ A horny women”
One more thing that stands out is when India shot Colt in the ass with a nail gun, LMAO, I don’t think I will ever forget that
Another favorite is between Kane and Ginger is Raising Kane
They are both raring to go but have to wait for Hayden and Dash to leave the house…
“Ginger, you okay?”
She whirled on him and growled, “No. Don’t touch me. Don’t talk to me. Don’t even look at me.”
Shit. Had she changed her mind? “Why not?”
“Because if you do, I will jump you and ride you like a pony, right fucking here, right fucking now, on my dirty kitchen linoleum.”
Whoa. Guess she hadn’t changed her mind.
There are so many good scenes in these books that I could write a book of my own just quoting all the hot, quirky, sexy, sweet things these cowboys say and let’s not forget the women that bring them to their knees.
Thank you so much for the opportunity to participate in the event. I am eagerly waiting the next installment in the Rough Riders series.
