BOOTS OPTIONAL NOVELLA
Note: This novella was originally featured in the Some Like It Hot Anthology. Although this story has not changed, this novella contains a bonus scene, along with an excerpt from Betting on Grace, DHR #1.
New York Times bestselling author Nicole Edwards is heating things up with Boots Optional, a sexy new ménage novella which is the first book in a hot new series called Dead Heat Ranch. Grace Lambert is familiar with hard work, long days, and handsome cowboys. She’s been working for her family’s dude ranch since she was old enough to ride a horse and she’s not afraid to get her hands dirty. What she is afraid of is the heat that’s been generating between her and not one, but two sexy cowboys who’ve set their sights on her. And each other.
Grant Kingsley and Lane Miller have both had their eyes on Gracie for years, but the feisty cowgirl has managed to keep them at bay. As far as they are concerned, cowboys don’t give up, and neither of them is ready to give up just yet. Not on her and not on the heat that transpires between the two of them.
Find out what happens when the sultry Texas nights get as hot as the fierce Texas days.
Shera’s Review of Boots Optional
5 out of 5 Hot M/M M/M/F STARS!!!!
I’ll start off by saying, I’ve never liked cowboy stories, BUT Grace, Grant and Lane have wrangled me like a wild horse and tied me up, leaving me wanting More, More, MORE!!!! I do believe I just got turned into a true Cowboy lover forever for sure!!!!
Grace lives on Dead Heat Ranch and is one of 5 sisters of the ranch owner. She’s beautiful, smart, funny and she’s a Cowgirl (you know they are all sexy). I love her attitude, spunk and her FIRE. Let’s not forget her foul mouth, love that too! That girl takes no crap from anyone, especially these boys. She is my kinda gal for sure. She has no interest in these boys…. Or does she?
“ Not interested in what your sellin cowboy”
Grant Kingsley….Oh Hot sexy Grant. Can you give me a shopping list like that? I will SURELY deliver it to you. He’s been on the ranch since he was 19 years old and has changed in so many ways. Grant loves the females, but he’s also got an attraction to males….ONE in particular, Lane……
Lane Miller is the best Wrangler on the ranch. He is funny and totally NOT afraid to say whats on his mind OR what he wants for that matter. He is funny, sexy and he has wanted Grant for a LONG Time.
“Such dirty words for such a pretty girl. “Lane whispered, his voice dangerously close to seductive”
They want each other AND they want Gracie, is this a Problem or is it the perfect concoction?? I will go with the perfect Grace, Grant and Lane Smore’s Sandwich. YUM!!! They are determined to have it all, all three of them together and boy does when it happens…. Douse me with water because it was HAWWWWWTTT. Like I need a pair of cowgirl boots, NOW!!!!
“Sorry. You can leave ‘em on if you want. Boots are Optional”
I love the banter that goes on between the three of them and Grace with her sisters. This book is SMOOOOKIN hot. I can’t wait for Betting On Grace. It’s not coming out soon enough because I need to know more about these three and at the very end, Nicole Edwards sets you up for Mercy and Cody!!
Mercy is Grace’s sister and I have a feeling that story is going to be interesting and I really hope we get it!! A little snippit from Mercy and Cody, that makes you KNOW their story will be just as hot … “ Yep, She was pretty damned sure that she’d found something she never, not in her wildest dreams, expected to find on this ranch….Her Kryptonite”
New York Times bestselling author Nicole Edwards is continuing to heat things up with Betting on Grace, a sexy new ménage novel which is the first book in a hot new series called Dead Heat Ranch.
The tables have turned on Grace Lambert. For a woman familiar with long days and hard work, she just recently discovered just how hot the sultry Texas nights can get. Finding time to spend with her two smoking hot cowboys, Grant and Lane, isn’t exactly easy, but she’s forging ahead with what has turned out to be the hottest relationship she has ever been in. The true test comes in standing up for what she wants.
Grant Kingsley has landed his feisty cowgirl, Gracie, and an equally sexy cowboy, Lane Miller, but everything outside of his romantic life has gone from routine to chaos in a matter of days. Unfortunately, he’s become rather acquainted with Murphy’s Law as he is inundated with a string of bad luck. His mother is missing, his father, a gambling addict, is worried about only one thing these days, and when Grant refuses to give in, all hell breaks loose on the ranch.
Lane Miller will be the first to admit that he falls in love easily. And he’s done so again, with both Gracie and Grant. Only this time around, he’s not giving up or giving in. Cowboys don’t know what it means to back down and Lane will ensure that the two most important people in his life get all of him, no matter what it takes.
She is the author of the Club Destiny and Alluring Indulgence series and working on more projects at this timeI’ve never been one to talk much about myself. It’s difficult, but as the days go by, I’m learning to open up a little. So, I’m going to give it a shot here…
Ever since I was young, I’ve enjoyed writing. When I was a teenager, I kept a journal. I did that until several years ago, I think. And if I wasn’t writing down my thoughts, I was coming up with scenes in my head for various characters who would come and go for whatever reasons. And now, here I am, all these years later, spending my days doing what I love the most. Writing is my full-time job, but it is also my hobby. My creative outlet. It is a true blessing that I have been allowed to do this. I decided to give myself over to writing full-time in December of 2012 and I haven’t looked back since. After spending nearly 13 years in the corporate world, it took me a little while to get used to working for myself, but I have to say, I’m loving every second of it.
If I’m not writing, I’m reading. Every single day. My TBR (to be read) list is long and it continues to grow each day thanks to the amazing authors who continue to publish books that we can’t get enough of. If you look at my TBR, you’ll find books by traditional and independent authors alike. My love of reading started back around a decade ago when I started reading Lora Leigh. Yes, if you want hot, check her out. Some of my other favorites include J.R. Ward, Suzanne Brockmann, Jayne Rylon, Maya Banks, Sylvia Day, Lorelei James, Lori Foster, Jill Shalvis, Jaci Burton, Carly Phillips and the list goes on and on and on.
An interesting fact about me… I don’t watch television. Well, aside from the occasional news channel or some home improvement show from time to time. I love movies, but I rarely go see them. I think since I picked up a book, all else has faded away and if I have any spare time whatsoever, I’m going to use it to do what I love.
