COWBOY WEEK: Blacktop Cowboys by Lorelei James

Share this!


With rising energy costs and such cold weather this winter, we at Under the Covers have come up with a sure fire way of keeping you warmed up over the holidays…guaranteed to get you hot under the collar (and Under the Covers) these men with have beautifully tight bodies, rugged manliness and talented hands…welcome to Cowboy Week!
We are showcasing 7 brilliant series, all featuring cowboys we would love to get our mouth and hands all over and showing you the best of what this popular sub genre has to offer! And I am sure we can squeeze in some hot cowboy eye candy in as well…
So Cowgirls grab your Stetson, buckle up your boots, it is time to lasso you some cowboys!

We are kicking things off with our AUTHOR OF THE MONTH… Lorelei James.  And although you may all be more familiar with her Rough Riders series, we wanted to start with the equally awesome BLACKTOP COWBOYS.

This series is not exactly like Rough Riders in that there is no big McKay-like family, but there is a sense of community and friendship between all the characters that always ties Ms. James’ books together.  When you read her series, you feel as if you are there, a part of their daily lives.  It’s all about their relationship problems, but also their daily lives.  Always real and without sugarcoating issues.   The cowboys in this series just get better and better.  They are take charge, alpha males that will have you panting and drooling…and maybe screaming.  Everytime I finish a book in the Blacktop Cowboys series I say it’s the best ever.  But that’s just it, you can expect just better and better.  Better stories, better cowboys, and yes maybe even better sex. LOL  I love every single character in this series, heroes and heroines alike.  And the best part is that no book is like the other, she keeps all her stories fresh and different.  You won’t be disappointed to give them a try…and they’ll keep you more than warm this holiday season.

On a side note, since I’ve enjoyed the audiobooks for this series immensely because I think the narrator is awesome…Be careful not read while driving 😉  Just saying.

Ms. Lorelei James was the one who popped my cowboy cherry.  After reading Corralled of the Blacktop Cowboys series I was immediately addicted to cowboy reads.  All of the books in this series made me laugh out loud, shed both sad and happy tears, and each book always left me hot and bothered.  Ms. James is a Cowboy Goddess creating enthralling story lines with drool worthy alpha heroes.  I loooove them all with Kyle from the last installment (One Night Rodeo, Blacktop #4) as my ultimate fave.

Slick from Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews says:

I’ll admit when Lorelei James announced The Blacktop Cowboy series I wasn’t sure if I’d like it but each book gets better and I’ve come to realize that these people are really a cozy little family of friends. I love how different each of the men and women have been in this series and I like that in most of the books the men had to really work hard to win over their women and none of them have had an easy road at all. These books intrigue me because everyone leads pretty different lives but it’s their childhood friendship that keeps them together despite their varied professions.




First in a new series about some hard-riding rodeo cowboys…and the women who can rein them in.

Sports therapist Lainie Capshaw has been rehabilitating injured cowboys long enough to know that a charming western drawl combined with a fine physical form doesn’t mean you fall for the man.

So no one is more surprised than Lainie when she finds herself involved with not one, but two different men: Hank Lawson, a bullfighter, and Kyle Gilchrist, a bull rider. Lainie feels guilty about her two-timing, but it doesn’t keep her from doubling her fun-that is until Hank catches her with Kyle.

She’s shocked that Hank isn’t mad. But she’s more shocked to learn Hank and Kyle are hometown buddies. But when the men offer to share her-in every way-she knows that she’s going to have to choose the one man who can give her the ride of her life…

This beauty is no greenhorn – and she’s about to rope the man of her dreams.

Cattleman Bran Turner is left shorthanded during busy calving season when a bull tramples his hired hand. Rural Wyoming isn’t exactly a hotbed of qualified candidates, and the only applicant for the position is the pampered town beauty, Harper Masterson. The curvy cowgirl gets under Bran’s skin at every turn, but with no other options, he reluctantly hires her.

When sexual sparks ignite, down-on-her-luck Harper enjoys convincing Bran that not only is she capable of pulling calves, feeding livestock, and handling backbreaking ranch chores, but she doesn’t mind getting down and dirty, either. Harper also discovers the hot-bodied cowboy isn’t all work and no horseplay…and he’s got more than a few tricks up his sleeve.

Bran will learn quickly that Harper is no country mouse-and that she might just have what it takes to stick around for the long haul.

All it takes is one night to change a cowboy’s life… Barrel racer Celia Lawson knows better than to tangle with bull rider Kyle Gilchrist. The sexy cowboy’s love ‘em and leave ‘em ways have earned him a reputation on the rodeo circuit, and he’s always seen her as his best friend’s kid sister. But after one wild, tequila-fueled night, Celia wakes up to find out she’s gotten herself hitched—to a man she never should have married! When Celia insists on an annulment, Kyle has no good reason to say no—except he isn’t ready to let go of his new bride. But then Kyle inherits a sprawling Wyoming ranch, and seizes the opportunity to enlist Celia’s help. She agrees to lend a hand—with two conditions: He has to get up to speed as a rancher within six months; then they’ll get a divorce. And their marriage will be in name only. Kyle gives in to Celia’s demand, yet he’s ready to prove to her he has what it takes to turn their one night rodeo into a lifetime of love….
