SYNOPSIS:

First in a brand-new series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Lora Leigh and Veronica Chadwick about one man’s pursuit of justice—and unbridled desire.

LAW AND ORDER.
For as long as Samantha can remember, Hunter—a man as strong as steel, with a heart of gold—has been her hero. It came as no surprise to Samantha when she found out that the ranch-hardened cowboy who always protected her from bullies went on to become the town’s sheriff. What does surprise her is how incredibly hot he still is. And how much she still wants him…

PRIDE AND PASSION

And, lo and behold, Hunter still has feelings for Samantha. The long-smoldering heat of their innocent flirtation has grown into a full-raging fire. But when tragedy strikes, and their small-town community is shattered, Hunter vows to do everything he can to keep his childhood sweetheart safe. But can Samantha trust that Hunter has her best interests at heart…and that, after all these years, his love is true?

📝MY REVIEW📝:

One Tough Cowboy (Moving Violations #1)One Tough Cowboy by Lora Leigh

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4 to 4.5 stars.
First let me explain my 4 to 4.5 rating. There were parts of this book that I liked and there were parts I loved. For me the reason for the 4 was because their were several areas where I feel the author didn’t give me the full closure I needed. Bottom line, when the end came I had questions. Unfortunately, I really can’t go into details without spoiling this book for you. I definitely don’t want to spoil it because the suspense aspect was amazing. I was constantly on the edge of my seat. There are definitely surprises and moments of “what the heck!”

I haven’t read anything by this author(s) before and I am so glad I have now. Wow, despite my few qualms with the book, I can’t fault anything about the writing talent. It was amazing. I will definitely be on the watch for the next book in this series.

Hunter and Samantha
Hunter is the small town’s current sheriff. Sam and Hunter new each other from when they were younger. But she moved away with her family. Samantha is back in town to settle things at her aunt’s. Her aunt “accidentally” overdosed on pain medication. Samantha is planning to stick around town for awhile and investigate her aunt’s suspicious death. She just so happens to be a Detroit police officer. Hunter and Sam will have to work closely together on the investigation. The attraction between these two is scorching. I am not exaggerating when I tell you there is a lot of intimacy. These two could not keep their hands off each other. Also, it was impossible to keep their attraction to each other from growing into love. I really loved Hunter and Sam together. Their chemistry was believable. Another aspect I loved was despite Sam being a police officer, Hunter still felt the need to protect her. Gosh, he is a total book boyfriend!

This story has a good amount of twists and turns. Surprises around every corner. And while there is some predictability, I was genuinely entertained and totally engrossed in

 the plot. So if you are a fan of romantic suspense and a sexy as sin alpha sheriff, I highly recommend One Tough Cowboy as a must read.

My whole life I’ve been told I was good for one thing. I was the family pawn, a pretty face to do their bidding.
Then I met him, and I dared to see a future where he could make me whole again.
But Lang has a secret – one that excites me. Now, I only want to play by his rules. But in his future, he sees things I can’t physically give him.
 
Will he leave me like everyone else does?
 
Lang
 
Power and control—I demand it. I never had it as a kid, but now my life is arranged and ordered as I like.
 
Then she comes into my life; young and inexperienced, and willing to surrender.
 
I’m ready to give up everything for my sweet Candy. But she gives me all her power. I hold it in my hands.

Candace
A smile spreads along his face, “You’re the perfect submissive, you know what to do and when to do it.” He drops a kiss on my nose. “But I’d like you to call me Daddy. But in the club I’m sir. You got it?”
This is a hard line for me. I don’t want to think of the two worthless daddy’s that have messed me up in my youth. As though he’s reading my mind, he starts, “I understand your hesitation, doll, but let me explain it to you this way. I’m the only Daddy in your life that matters. I’ll take away all the hurt and pain.”
My eyes widen at his words, the thought he’s put in it. “Fuck, Lang, when you put it like that, how can I say no?” I lean back, still fascinated by what’s in his hands.
“Now that we have that settled, my naughty girl, this is one of your club outfits. It’s a little more sophisticated than some of the other ones will be.” I look at the leather dress, wondering what the others will look like. “Because we’re having dinner upstairs, we’ll dress a little more discreet, for tonight only.”
With sleeves that come right below the elbows and a scoop neck, the dress does look more modest than most BDSM outfits I’d imagine would boast. It’s one hundred percent leather and will cling to me like a second skin. With strappy four-inch shoes in his hand, and black fishnet thigh-highs with a garter belt, I understand I’ll be going commando tonight. 

Leigh Lennon is mother, veteran and a wife of a cancer survivor. Originally with a degree in education, she started writing as an outlet that has led to a deep passion. She lugs her computer with her as she crafts her next story. One could say she loves pretty nails, big earrings and spiky hair. She can be found drinking coffee or wine, depending on the time of the day.

Trent
How do you go home when home is gone?
I’ve paid my dues for protecting someone I love.
In return my family, my life, and my freedom—all taken from me.
When a friend calls in a favor, I go from nothing…to having a job and a place to live.
A fresh start brings something more; a woman who brings out my protective instincts.
She’s been hurt—it’s written all over her.
There’s one thing for sure, I want her.
And I vow that nothing will ever harm her again.
Michelle
I’ve hit rock bottom, and I’ve slowly climbed my way back up.
Now, I keep myself locked away. It’s easier than letting people in and telling them about that night.
I live my life in the shadows because happiness is something that I can’t have.
I keep my pain where it belongs, in the past. I keep my secrets buried deep down.
Now my past is colliding with my future, and I’m not sure how I’m going to survive.
But in the midst of the darkness is a shining light: Trent.
Sometimes you find home in the place you least expect it.

to get out of this town, but she refused to take it. 
She was
going to give up everything for me.

worth that kind of sacrifice.  
In order to

Nash Masters broke my heart was the catalyst for the ruin that came
after. 
All these
years later, he was fighting for my forgiveness.
He had no
idea I was the one who needed his.
The truth
didn’t always set you free. 
They said
love conquered all, but this was war.

everything worth having was worth fighting for.

She had it all figured out.
 
Burned by love, Arden Graham thought she know where her life was going. As an event planner at Rocky Shores Retirement home in Queens, she enjoyed her life. Bringing smiles to the faces of the elderly brought her joy. Giving them something to look forward to, gave her a sense of purpose.
 
Being stalked was never in the game plan. Neither was having two bodyguards who liked to boss her around. With Arden in and out of the tabloids because of her charity work for her twin brother’s company, Boston and Dare think they have her figured out.
 
Falling in love wasn’t the plan.
 
Boston Falco and Dare Waters have been best friends for more than half their lives. The decision to share one woman came as easily as when they joined the SEALs. Receiving a call from two men on their former SEAL team to protect their little sister, came as a shock. The woman herself was the biggest contradiction they’d ever encountered.
 
With the help of their former technical analyst, John ‘Tex’ Keegan, the hunt for Ardern’s stalker is on. The clock is ticking, twists keep coming, and soon or later somethings’s gotta give. With no idea who’s on the other end of the revealing pictures and veiled threats, the only question left is; will they be able to unravel Arden’s heart and open her up to love again once all is said and done?
 
 
Unraveling Love is the first book in International Bestselling Author K.L. Donn’s new menage series, Damaged Love. Publishing in Susan Stoker’s Special Forces: Operation Alpha World.

Somebody once said we don’t decide who we love. The world decides for us. But I disagree.
 
I believe love is a decision.
Who we love, how we love.
It’s in our control–in our hands.
I grew up having no clue about the true meaning of love. Money. Cars. Houses. Status. Fame. That’s what love means to the people around me.
It wasn’t until the woman I picked up in a bar came back into my life and showed me love can be so much more.
So, what’s the problem?
The woman I’m falling in love with believes in fairytales. She compares everything to a storybook and wants the happily-ever-after.
So while she’s stuck on recreating stories that have already been told, page by page, I’m showing her it’s time we write our own book.
Nobody ever said the journey of falling in love would be easy, just that it would be worth it.
