12 days/12 reasons to buy it now!
Thursday, October 16th, 2008

Very, very important!
Today’s a double posting for two chances to win. Be sure to read the entry just below for the Allure Authors: 30 Days of Giveaways! First thing tomorrow morning, I’ll announce both winners!

Yesterday, I told you the heroes in the interconnecting stories are the #1, #2, and #3 reasons you will want to read this book. Today, let me introduce you to Danny Tynan, Brandon’s little brother. Danny is a restless soul, content to let Brand run the ranch they both inherited while he hires out to other ranches to work with horses. But Danny’s got a secret yearning for an older woman.

Take a peek inside Danny’s story…


Sometimes, destiny rushed up to meet a man head on. Sometimes, he just had to take a step backward.

Daniel Tynan raised his arms to stretch his back, wincing at a twinge in a muscle behind his shoulder. Although accustomed to physical labor, he’d overdone it today, but the effort had been well worth it.

Glancing out a window, he noted the darkness and raked his hand through his hair, grimacing when he pulled away pieces of straw. He’d dragged his feet long enough.

He picked his Stetson off the corner post of the last stall he’d cleaned and set it on top of his head. His first day at Wasp Creek Ranch left him feeling deeply satisfied with his choice, despite the aches. He was needed here.

Seven years had passed since he’d spent a summer wrangling under Douglas Dermott’s tutelage, learning how to work with the horses. Quarter horses for reining, cutting and racing, as well as the occasional Appaloosa. Douglas had loved them all, had taken pride in his breeding program and shared his skill as a trainer with quiet patience.

A raw teenager, Danny had been eager to take on a new challenge—one not so far removed from his own upbringing on a cattle ranch that he’d felt completely out of his element.

He’d learned a lot from Douglas.

Too bad he’d returned the gift by lusting after the man’s wife.

These women like their horses fast and their men hard. And they always know how to get what they want…

“…Sisters Devlin and Jackson team up with Chase to create sizzling stories of delicious, daring men and even wilder women. Make sure you’ve got time to kill, because once you start you’ll want to read this collection in one sitting.” —4 ½ Stars, RT BOOKreviews

“…a great trio of fabulous tales. Just like its prequel, WILD WILD WOMEN OF THE WEST II introduces us to women who aren’t afraid to go after their heart’s desire. Each of the women in these short tales are not the innocent misses you normally read about. Instead they are bold and brazen lucky gals who find the hunkiest men who are theirs for the taking. Interesting plots and dynamic characters make WILD WILD WOMEN OF THE WEST II a must read for those who like their stories juicy and fun.” —RRT Erotic



Jake froze, sucking in a deep breath. The thought she’d given herself to another man clawed at his gut. He didn’t know why the fact angered him so much–it wasn’t as if he had a right to be jealous. Wasn’t as if he knew anything about the woman, but he’d felt a connection the first time he’d held her in his arms.

Ridiculous as it seemed, the thought that another man had caressed her intimately, molded her slender curves with his rough hands, and enjoyed her passionate responses made him feel sick to his stomach and ready to kill.

As the anger roiled inside him, he reminded himself, she wasn’t what she appeared to be–sweetness and innocent curiosity. Her lack of innocence meant he didn’t have to be so careful. “You’re very direct.”

Her chin lifted. “I don’t see any reason to pussyfoot around this. I’m attracted to you…and if you’re attracted to me, well…”

His body tightened as he got her meaning. He crossed his arms over his chest and feigned a nonchalance he was far from feeling. “You’d risk your reputation to be with me?”

“I won’t be staying here,” she said softly.

“I see,” he said nodding slowly. “Is it just because you want to see what it’s like having an Indian?” he asked, not hiding the bitterness that rose to burn the back of his throat.

She blinked owlishly. “I thought you were half.”

“I am, but a drop’s too much for most.”
