Review: Raising Kane by Lorelei James
Raising Kane

5 Stars

Book Info

Released: July 2010
Series: Rough Riders #9
Pages: 316

Warning: Contains one sweet and hot hunk of cowboy manflesh who uses every sexual trick in the book to render a sassy, fast-talking attorney speechless and put a new twist on the term “binding arbitration”.

She surrendered the reins. Now he’s raising the stakes.

When a patch of ice sends attorney Ginger Paulson head-over-high-heels down a flight of stairs, she has no one to care for her young son and her invalid father – until lethally sexy Kane McKay shows up at the hospital, determined to prove his cowboy chivalry. Past experience has inoculated her against take-charge men, but even Ginger isn’t immune to Kane’s invasive charm and Built Ford Tough body.

For two years rancher Kane McKay has followed the Little Buddies mentoring program’s cardinal rule – hands off his Little Buddy Hayden’s mama. But one look at Ginger’s bruised body and Kane is through watching the stubborn woman take care of everyone but herself. The feisty, curvy redhead needs his help, and he’ll give her the hands-on type whether she likes it or not.

After Kane throws out doctor’s orders and issues his own demands – her full sexual submission – Ginger realizes Kane’s caring nature extends beyond just fulfilling her physical needs.

Can the former hell-raiser convince the gun-shy single mom to look beyond his past – toward a shared future? From Goodreads

We have heard so much about Kane’s hell raising ways in the other books in the series and even had hi featured in a rather tawdry threesome/foursome in “Cowgirl Up and Ride” and now finally Kane (also known as Buck!) has his own book. A book I really enjoyed, I don’t know what it is about these twins, but Kane and Kade’s book have got to be my top two in this series.

Kane has changed, he is now a responsible guy, despite how he is still seen by some people. However, this just adds to his appeal, he was such a great guy in this book. Loving, kind, hardworking, and ofcourse abso-fricking-lotely gorgeous. And the sex scenes in this were really good, hot and intense, Ginger is one lucky lady!

This series just keeps getting better and better and I really can not get enought of LJ’s hot cowboys!

Nice Review! Not my usual romance sub-genre that I read…I believe I’ve just expanded my horizons. LOL


Hi, I’m a new follower! I really like your blog and I thought you might be interested in joining my event that will be hosted over my blog in August


I love Lorelei James books. One of my favourite series is this Rough Riders. I just finished Chasin Eight her newest release and it was spectacular. I’m going to post the review after Sunday.
Great review. It makes me want to go back and reread it.


Excellent review. And that cover is to die for. *sigh*


Great review! I love the Rough Riders and I’ve wanted to read Kane’s story for a long time.
