Hey everybody! It's time! Another one of the I am A Reader, Not a Writer and Simply Stacie super blog hops! I just love their hops!

So, as I said in the previous post, a good friend of mine turned me on to a series called Rough Riders, written by Lorelei James. Ever seen 'em? These books are SMOKIN' HAWT! From book one, page 1 you are thrown into the Wyoming cattle ranching McKay's and their HAWT Irish Country heritage. Don't get me wrong. None of these boys are dressed in kilts. These boys are country through and through. Tight wranglers, Tony Lama boots, Stetson Resistol Cowboy hats and all! They're good with their hands and good with their......ropes! *snickering* These books bring it all. If you have any sexual "hot buttons" you may want to check the books out before trying to win them. There are all kinds of sexual escapades in these books.

There are no shifters, vamps, demons, witches or anything supernatural in these books. Its just HAWT cowboys and the strong women who love them and have the pleasure of being loved by them.

For my giveaway, I will be giving one winner in the US (sorry International peeps) a copy of the first book in the series "Long Hard Ride"

AND a copy of the 2nd book, "Rode Hard, Put up Wet"

If you don't happen to win, you can check out these super HAWT, SMEXY books full of rock hard....biceps & 6-pack abs at Amazon (just one of the locations you can purchase them).

Now for the important stuff....what do you need to do to be counted in the Goddess's count? (Sorry, the "comment" section is BELOW all the links for the blogs participating in the blog hop.)
1. You MUST be a follower. No exceptions!
2. You MUST leave a comment. Not just a "great giveaway, yada yada yada" comment, something that shows you're interested in these books.

That's it! No jumping through thousands of hoops and following me everywhere.

You MUST be over 18 to win these books! The content is VERY adult & there is no way I'll be giving these books to any kids.....sorry!

I would like you to see the previous post as there is a link to the Facebook Fan Page where the characters of these books "live" and interact with the fans.

Now, there are linkies that you can use to hop from blog to blog. And if I do this right, they will be down here. If not, please go to the link in the beginning for the I Am A Reader, Not A Writer blog or Simply Stacie's blog.

As for why I'm interested in reading these books, Amazon offered a novella from the series and I LOVED IT. I really want to read more by this author.

Always wanted myself a cowboy and I'm a sucker for an Irishman! The best of both worlds in one book.

I have been wanting to read this series for forever and I finally read Long Hard Ride (omg so hawt) when it was free on Nook and am dying to read the second one. I would love to have both of these so I can have the actually book in my hands and finally read Rode Hard Put Up Wet.

I'm interested because I write contemporary romance & am not particularly into vamps, etc. Love to find a new author since that's what I'm counting on people doing, myself.

Seriously, I have the first book in the series downloaded but have not had the opportunity to read this yet (I must really stop sleeping, it is a waste of time that I could be reading, lol). I really want to read this whole series, they are sexy cowboys and I do love a cowboy!

Don't worry--I'm not just going to say great giveaway and thanks. I want to say that it is so refreshing not to offer a paranormal or vampire book! So many of the giveaways are these, and there is no way on earth I will read those! So it is refreshing to have a book offered like this. Thanks!

Mona said...

Thanks for a giveaway off the beaten path :)
There's just something about cowboys with those tight jeans, boots...
Even the titles of these books are sexy *blush*
