ShortRides (1)


Short Rides is an anthology compilation of two novellas and one short story in the Rough Riders world. These are NOT meant to be read as standalone stories, but are a peek into favorite character’s lives after the happily ever after…
The stories included in the Short Rides anthology are:
King of Hearts* — Deputy Cam McKay deals with a murder/suicide case on Valentine’s Day.
Rough Road — Chassie, Trevor and Edgard Glanzer spend a romantic weekend away from the ranch and kids celebrating their anniversary…only to return home to face their biggest challenge yet.
All Knocked Up — Keely and Jack Donohue are having a baby. Given Keely’s raging pregnancy hormones, will Jack need to wear a cup in the delivery room?
*previously published in the Guns and Roses anthology in 2012


I’ve got to get better about what books I choose to review!  I try to keep this blog clean but seems like I have been agreeing to review some erotica lately…don’t get me wrong, I don’t mind reading it but boy howdy, does it get steamy and spicy!  I have always wondered how these authors come up with the sex scenes.  I don’t recommend reading this book at work!  Those scenes aside, in King of Hearts, I enjoyed seeing how Cam dealt with normalcy at home with his family when not out fighting crime as a sheriff.  I even sniffled a little at the very end, very sweet and touching.  In Rough Road, the family deals with the small mindedness of outsiders not accepting that they are not a traditional family.  There are some great lessons taught to the children in this story to accept everyone for who they are.  And in All Knocked Up the closeness between Jack and Keely gives us hope that no matter how crazy you are that when you find the right person you can endure anything.

I give it 3 1/2 paws (had to cover April and Gracie’s eyes, they are too young for this genre!)
