In between books I find this rare jewels that make me loosen up and just go along for the fun of it.
This series usually have a small town, sometimes rural setting, and the most wanted alpha men dressed up as a loving cowboy. What's more sexy than a cowboy, or in this case two, wanting to get over hurt and sorrow, and embracing a future with a woman that needs protection ?
(from Goodreads) :
Denver socialite Mandy Duncan is on the run from her ex-husband. She knows about his Ponzi scheme, and only she stands between him and jail. He’s determined to stop her from ever talking.
Mandy escapes to Samantha Callen’s ranch in Intrigue, Wyoming, and hires on as a wilderness guide. Distrustful of men, Mandy doesn’t want to be attracted to Samantha’s cousin, financial guru Vince Callen, or to his sophisticated lawyer roommate, Cameron Longworth, but she is.
Then Cameron and Vince’s ex-fiancée decides she wants them back. When Cameron tells her he’s found someone new, she decides Mandy needs to go.
When Mandy is shot, Cameron and Vince won’t let her out of their sight, and their passion explodes. Then she’s kidnapped. Frantic, Cameron and Vince risk it all to save her. How can they convince her to trust her heart again and want a loving ménage relationship?
So NetGalley made me the very happy reader, on behalf of Season Publishing, of this wonderful romance that I simply devoured and couldn't put down until I got to the last page.
"Diamonds and Spurs"reached my expectations in this type of plot, with two very hot heroes, twists along the way, and a very able and confident heroine.
The author also made a point that the book was not only about their relationship and the menage liaison, but also about the story that runs along with the characters. This factors make me a very happy reader and also the knowledge that I found an author that I want to read more of.
Mandy is the perfect heroine, a woman that as it all but through her honesty throws everything away gaining her integrity back when she decides to divorce her high profile husband.
She's also a woman open to love again and with the ability to not deny what she doesn't know and make ahead opinions of the unusual relationships that are common in Intrigue.
Now, Vince and Cameron couldn't be more perfect, as partners and as lovers.
They "work" in partnership, love Mandy as equals and are not overly authoritative in relation to their woman. They are modern men, living in today's world but enjoying the wilderness and peace that this back country gives them.
Even though this book is pure romance, erotica, falling in the sub category Menage, this book is so well written, it flows without any gaps between the actions and is proportionally perfect for someone that wants to read a romantic suspense book.
M. Monroe writing style is one that I want to catch up on and wait for the next books to come out.
