Blurb: On a ranch, there’s plenty to stand in the way of two men finding romance and their happily ever after—long hours of work, lack of communication, and the expectations of others. But for these cowboys, no obstacles can keep them from realizing their passion and love.

Letters From a Cowboy

When Simon Wood comes to Tamar Ranch, what begins as animosity between him and Chip Henson soon evolves into something very different. They give in to their need, but they’re taking a big risk leaving letters for each other. Soon Simon must choose between leaving the ranch to save Chip’s job or taking an even bigger risk and going back for him.

Review: Back in the 50’s being gay could get you killed. Simon moves from ranch to ranch when things get heated. After leaving his last ranch getting caught with his boss, he was lucky to leave with his hide. He comes to the Tamar ranch and finds he like it.  An animosity between him and Chip soon evolve into something much stronger than either has ever had before. This time Simon doesn’t run to save his hide but Chips. How does that work out?

This was a beautifully written, poignant story of love between two men in the 1950’s. There is comradery, lots of action, drama and a beautiful romance. I loved the little letters between the men. This story moved me in so many ways. I will warn ya, once ya start you can’t stop and have a tissue or two handy.

The only issue I had was I was deep into it and bam I turned the page to the epilogue. It ended much too soon, but I loved the end!

If you like historical romance (1950’s, bigotry, cowboys, angst, drama, and some fairly hot man-sex this is definitely for you!

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Intense story about trying and failing to secure a peace treaty with the Indians. Only to discover the Indians want war not peace. Grisly details of what the Indians did to those they caught as well as trying to outrun a tornado made for an awesome read.

I understood why the Indians chose war and not peace but I didn’t understand why they killed children. Ben and Logan have known each other a long time and to Logan’s shock after he is tortured after saving Ben from the Indians, Ben admits he has had feelings for him for a long time.

Loved the wonderfully written descriptions of the different scenes throughout this well written book as well as hot sex between Logan and Ben. This story does end in a cliffhanger to be continued in the next book. Fantastic read that keeps your attention from beginning to end.

Highly recommended.

Abigail Roux - According To Hoyle _500x750

 According to Hoyle


Abigail Roux

By the close of 1882 in the American West, the line between heroes and villains is narrow. Total chaos is staved off only by the few who take the law at its word and risk their lives to uphold it. But in the West, the rules aren’t always played according to Hoyle.

US Marshals Eli Flynn and William Henry Washington—longtime friends and colleagues—are escorting two prisoners to New Orleans for trial when they discover there’s more than outlawry to the infamous shootist Dusty Rose and the enigmatic man known as Cage. As the two prisoners form an unlikely partnership, the marshals can’t help but look closer at their own.

When forces beyond the marshals’ control converge on the paddle wheeler they’ve hired to take them downriver, they must choose between two dangers: playing by the rules at any cost, or trusting the very men they are meant to bring to justice.

(This title is a revised and edited second edition, with minor new additions, of According to Hoyle, originally published elsewhere.)

Lisa Henry

Wyoming Territory, 1870.


Elijah Carter is afflicted. Most of the townsfolk of South Pass City treat him as a simpleton because he’s deaf, but that’s not what shames him the most. Something in Elijah runs contrary to nature and to God. Something that Elijah desperately tries to keep hidden.

Harlan Crane, owner of the Empire saloon, knows Elijah for what he is—and for all the ungodly things he wants. And Crane isn’t the only one. Grady Mullins desires Elijah too, but unlike Crane, he refuses to push or mistreat the young man.

When violence shatters Elijah’s world, he is caught between two very different men and two devastating urges: revenge and despair. In a boomtown teetering on the edge of a bust, Elijah must face what it means to be a man in control of his own destiny, and choose a course that might end his life . . . or truly begin it for the very first time.

Dakota Skies


Taylin Clavelli

Born in the wrong time…

In 1875 Dakota, Sheriff Jamie Carter has to hide his interest in men, even from his gutsy twin sister, Anna. On a good day, the truth can mean a bullet between the eyes, and on a bad, one in the back.

A man on a mission…

Jamie leaves Anna in charge of Blackrock and he hits the bounty-hunting trail, along with his faithful equine companion, Houston. Five territories, scores of ‘Wanted’ posters, and many bullets later, his path unexpectedly converges with that of enigmatic loner, Kit Brooks.

Two men with one soul…

Will the smoldering fire between them rage into an inferno and break down protective barriers, allowing them to find love? Or will it separate and kill them?

Beneath Dakota skies…

Jamie and Kit’s story is a sweeping saga of cowboys, Indians, persistent broads, and vengeful villains, where the cowboys aren’t always the good guys, and love can’t be taken for granted.

Blurb: In the frontier town of Belkin’s Pass, as a vampire quietly feeds on the local saloon girls and their customers, a tragedy teaches resident Josh Stanton he has the ability to raise the dead. Knowing he is now a wanted man, Josh flees into the arid plains of Venom Valley. Pursued by Dex, the town deputy and Josh’s best friend, the two realize their friendship is truly something deeper, and Dex has to decide if he’s a man of the law, or a man in love. The vampire, drawn by Josh’s power, circles ever closer, gathering his forces against them.

Review: Josh knows he has to run. Nobody would ever believe the real reason why he put bullets in two people… they came back from the dead. Dex investigates when a young girl says she saw a murder, what he finds disturbs him and he doesn’t want to believe that Josh would ever do such a thing. Meanwhile, strange things begin to happen in town at the saloon and Dex begins to wonder if there is a connection. Dex has to find Josh before anyone else in town does, leading Dex and Josh to admit their feelings are more than friendship. But, danger lurks as a town wants justice and a mysterious vampire wants Josh.

This is a great start to what looks to be an action filled series with a dark vampire and a mysterious power. Josh has a strange power, one that scares him to death. When he is near a dead body he begins to heat up and the body will begin to move. Shooting the dead is a problem when you can’t tell the truth and justice in a wild west town can be swift and brutal. The only thing now that Josh can regret is losing his best friend, Dex, the man he has secret longings for. Dex wants to protect his friend, Josh, but there is no way that the town will listen to reason. so Dex has a choice to make between duty and love. Dex and Josh face a greater threat though, when a mysterious man who calls himself a vampire decides that he wants Josh.

I really enjoyed this story with its paranormal aspects. It starts with a hint of danger that twists into a mysterious power, and next we have secret forbidden longings and a danger that lurks in the shadows. Josh and Dex have a heart to heart, where Josh shares the astounding truth and they share a magical night together, before reality comes calling and they are both hunted in the night. The story has shifting perspectives and Josh, Dex and Glory are the ones who give us clear insight into what is happening. Josh and Dex are to be expected, but it is Glory who first gave us a glimpse of the vampire and Glory has a secret of her own as well. One that I think we will see more of as the series continues.

This story is really well written. The scenes are described brilliantly, the images of dead people shambling towards you with wolves just waiting to pounce was vivid. Josh and Dex’s relationship beginning was really hot and quite sweet. The action and danger are great and the storyline is really intriguing, as we discover that there is a lot more to Venom Valley than just a few rattlers and wolves. I have to admit the ending left me wanting more.

I have to recommend this to those who love deputies, cowboys, mysterious goings on, discovering love with your best friend, hot sex, a vampire with dark deeds on his mind and an ending that makes you want the next book now.
