As I’m tearing through the Rough Riders series, I figured it would be a good idea to add these novellas to the mix. They deal with some of the cousins of the McKay’s. This one is Nick West’s story. Now, my regulars know I have a bit of an obsession about reading things in order…even if they’re not part of the same series. Once I like an author I will often go back to their beginning and try to read their books by publication date. This doesn’t always work out for me, but it’s one of my quirks. So when I realized this series was out there I had to jump back a bit. This one was published between Rough, Raw, and Ready and Branded as Trouble of the Rough Riders series. And since there are crossover characters I will stick to reading by publication date here.
This is a short and ultra-steamy book. There is a whole lot of sex packed into these few pages. But, surprising to me, also a whole lot of sweetness. Why should I be surprised that a cousin of the McKay’s is really a softy at his core? And Holly is impossible to dislike. She’s so awkward and innocent, yet sexy as all get out.
You absolutely do not need to read the Rough Rider books to read this one. And you don’t have to read this one to enjoy the Rough Rider books…but it’s an added bonus story that you’ll definitely enjoy if you are a fan.
