Lacy Denvers has lost her job, and lost her way. All she wants to do now is get her career back on track and find some stability again, but first, she wants to mark something off her bucket list: She wants to learn to ride a horse. Her dream vacation to the Crawley Creek Cattle Ranch turns into a lesson in patience when the North Dakota winter proves unpredictable as ever. Wrapped in a cocoon of snow, Lacy finds the ranch to be a hidden treasure trove of cowboy eye candy, and her mouth is watering even as her brain is telling her to run. After a devastating tragedy, a young Drannon Russo ended up fostering with the Crawley family, and found a home. He’s only moved away once and had to lean on family for support when his dreams were shattered. Being a cowboy on a ranch is a pretty lonely existence. When a beautiful redhead shows up looking for a fresh start he’s determined to give them both what they want. Will this vacation into the heart of cattle country turn out to be a mistake, or will Lacy and Drannon find their future in each other? Warning: Explicit romance
Lacy is struggling to start a graphic design and marketing business in Chicago. She has never celebrated her birthday but this year she will. She has always wanted to ride a horse so she has booked a vacation at a working cattle ranch. What better way to spend your special day than surrounded by beautiful scenery, magnificent horses, and sexy as sin real life cowboys? Especially oldest brother Drannon? Nothing comes to mind that can beat such a combination!
I have always had a thing for sexy cowboys. Drannon, Vin, Roman, and Hawke don't disappoint! They are hard-working, HOT sexy cowboys who know how to treat a lady! The chemistry between Lacy and Drannon is combustible! I thought my tablet would malfunction from melted wires. Drannon brought out passion in Lacy unlike anything she had ever known. To me, one of the big reasons Drannon is so appealing-besides the obvious- is the tender, heartfelt things he did for Lacy. Like the moonlight horse ride. I won't tell you why because I don't like spoilers. You will understand when you read the story.
Learning about Abe and Sera Crawley and how much love they had for so many people, the legacy they left behind, the obvious love and respect between the brothers and Marilyn, the friendship all of them extended so freely to her, all these combined to cause Lacy to reevaluate her life and her plans for the future. She has always been afraid to open her heart and take risks but now she wonders if she can be happy living that way.
This story hooked me from the beginning and never let go. It is well-written and transitions smoothly between scenes. I liked the fact there was no silly misunderstanding and time spent apart. Communication was key in all the relationships. Love and humor abounded.
I had one small problem though. Lacy is an intelligent woman but never thought taking a vacation in February to North Dakota wasn't exactly a good idea. She was surprised when a blizzard was coming? And only brought tennis shoes? I mean, really?
Forget Me Knot is the first book I've read by Lori King. I'm really glad I read it. I will be starting Book 2- Rough Ride Romeo later today. I can't wait to see what Roman's story is like. If you like cowboys, romances, steam, or just a really good story, Forget Me Knot is a must-read.
Cowboys don’t cry, but Roman “Romeo” Freemont certainly has enough tragic history to spend his days teary-eyed. Instead he’s turned to women and liquor in an effort to soothe his aches and pains, but when a petite brunette with a feisty temper comes crashing into his world, he realizes what he’s been missing. Francesca “Franki” Scott has walked through fire herself. Nowadays she just isn’t a people person, and she’s definitely not interested in a wannabe playboy ranch owner either. She has a mission and it could mean life or death for someone close to her if she gets distracted. Closing the gap between these two wounded souls could mean surviving yet another tragedy. Will their determination to hide their pain from themselves be their downfall, or will they come through this rough ride together?
Warning: Explicit Romance
Wow!! All the sexy cowboys of Crawley Creek are back! So is the steam! And the romance!
This story deals with Roman falling in love. Something he swore he would never do. Roman has too many demons chasing him to get seriously involved with a woman. Especially a woman like Franki who has demons of her own.
Franki has come to North Dakota to meet her sister. Or so she says. Roman doesn't believe she would be as tense, edgy, and wary of everyone if that was true. He feels she is hiding something big and he is determined to find out what it is. And help make it right. Roman knows it won't be easy and he has to earn Franki's trust first. Can Roman earn Franki's trust and win her heart? Well, what sane woman wouldn't fall for a sexy, sweet, compassionate cowboy! I certainly would!!
Once again, Lori King has written a terrific book! After reading Forget Me Knot, I wondered if Rough Ride Romeo could be as good. I definitely wasn't disappointed. This book contains humor, non-romantic love, romance, and honest communication. It also has a sexy, hot couple figuring out how to deal with their demons and make a life together.
I was glad to learn more about Marilyn in this story. Hopefully, that means she will get a book of her own. What kind of man would appeal to a woman who has spent most of her life taking care of foster children and cowboys?
Everyone should read Rough Ride Romeo. Just like Forget Me Knot, you won't be disappointed. Hold on tight to the reins! You're in for a wild ride!
