Release Date: January 12, 2016



A wedding. An airport.
A girl on the run.

And a Marine in need of salvation.

Margo Santero

Riding in a rodeo with a pack of adrenaline-hyped cowboys isn’t what it was cracked up to be. When my mom died, I found out the hard way everyone has a price. And trust is a commodity. This isn’t the life I envisioned, but neither is the demented offer my step-uncle tosses my way. With a sick threat, he ups the ante, forcing me to bolt. One day I’ll fix Axel for good. For now, I’ve gotta a run.

Rod McLemore

She stormed into my life. A beautiful hurricane with dark secrets, blinding curves, and a smart-mouth I should kiss into submission. She’s on the run and needs my help. Not that she listens. But if it’s the last thing I do, I’m going to make her mine. Even if it means I have to lie, cheat, deal with her horse from hell… Or get out my M9. Won’t be the first time I’ve pulled the trigger.

STORM WARNING: This is a seismic erotic romance, detailing a barely-legal runaway and a dirty-talking McLemore. If a fiercely protective aka alpha-male cowboy lights your fire, then you’ve come to the right ranch.





If you can’t stand the heat, better not come near this nuclear fusion Western, ’cause baby you will get burnt!

 What a SUPER-HOT read. I haven’t read any of the others in this series, and I didn’t even know there were others in this series when I signed up for it. I am glad I didn’t know there were others, I would have probably not read this one… thinking I needed to read the other ones first, and I would have been WRONG.


 I loved this story. You have Margo, who is a barrel racer and had to come home for her sister’s wedding. The groom asked his cousin Rod, to pick up Margo at the airport. Well, let me just tell you the HEAT started even before they knew each other. The airport bathroom will never be the same.


Between age difference and Margo’s step-uncle, there relationship is a “rocky” one and has a lot of obstacles to work through.


 Margo is a tough cookie to crack, but with Rod, she seems to soften and are able to work together. You just never know what she is going to do next. She tries to be so tough and keeps a lot to herself. Well… Rod makes sure that doesn’t happen any longer.


Let me just say…. This is a “panty melter” of a story and if you are looking for a sexy cowboy with a “spitfire” female character this story is for you! This one will keep you wondering until the very end.

Pulling away from my mouth, she gazed at me, her pupils fully dilated. “I’m ready to come. Are you?”

“Margo,” I grunted, taking hold of her hands. I wanted to kiss every inch of her skin. “I’m going to take my time with you. Suck on your clit until you soak my mouth.”

“Let’s go somewhere. Anywhere.” She piloted my hands down between her thighs. “Fuck me. So hard you bruise me. Fuck me everywhere,” she begged. “So rough it hurts. Really. Hurts. Can you?”

“Yeah.” I captured her wrists.

We stared at each other. She asked me to hurt her. Something I’d never delivered to another woman, but with her everything was different. Margo unlocked a side of me that demanded I mark her. Even if it meant she’d experience pain mixed with pleasure. I got what she was after—I hungered to give her that and more, but not in my truck. We’d need hours…days. And a plan.

“Please,” she whimpered, her breath sweet against my mouth.

“Not here. The next time we fuck, I want you in my bed. Open and submitting to me. Baby, I’ll give you what you need. So much, you’re going to surrender completely to me. Or not at all.”


IT SMOLDERS, then you’ve come to the right ranch.
This girl wants it hard.
This man isn’t going to let her get away.
