GIVEAWAY & REVIEW: Forever's Western Blog Tour with Katie Lane & RC Ryan @foreverromance




Description
The Truth Can Be an Irresistible Temptation . . . 
As a young boy, Quinn Conway was shattered by his mother's mysterious disappearance. Today, as the oldest of the Conway brothers, his only concern is protecting his family and their ranch. One look at beautiful, strong-willed Cheyenne O'Brien tells him she's also no stranger to tragedy. A series of increasingly dangerous "accidents" are plaguing her and her land, and Quinn can't stand idly by while a woman is in danger. 
Fiercely independent, Cheyenne isn't one to lean on others, yet she can't deny her attraction to the rugged rancher offering help. Soon, the passion building between them proves as wild and untamed as the land she loves-and just as impossible to resist. But a relentless enemy is about to make one final devastating move. To survive, Quinn and Cheyenne must put their cherished freedom-and their hearts-at risk . .

MY THOUGHTS
LOVED IT
The story takes us to Quinn, the eldest of the three Conway boys and since his mother disappeared when they were kids, has taken the brunt of the abandonment.  So when Quinn, who loves nature and all it's creatures finds one of his now adult wolf pups dead, he blames the nearby rancher, Cheyenne.  She had good reason to believe that this wold was killing her cattle.  Cute meet?  I guess for the ranching world, this is normal.  The pair find common ground even though they seem to be opposites.  There is a lot of drama building with Cheyenne and you wonder if she is strong enough to pull through this latest development in her life.  Overall, a great romance that takes this cowboy story in a new direction.  For some reason, I was really reminded of parts of Little House on the Prairie where one calamity after another seems to follow the Wilder family.  




Description
Shirlene Dalton has it all: a dream marriage to a man who spoils her rotten and the most outrageous mansion Bramble, Texas, has ever seen. But when her husband unexpectedly dies, Shirlene finds herself right back where she started-in a rundown trailer on the wrong side of the tracks. Never the type to let a little bad luck and a whole heap of heartache get her down, Shirlene is ready to prove to the local gossips she can make it on her own... until she ends up living next door to the most tempting cowboy in town. 
Billy Wilkes has a score to settle and a plan to wipe Bramble right off the map. But when his sexy, redheaded neighbor figures out what he's up to, his good ol' boy charm won't be enough to save him. With the town on his tail, Billy will have to come clean quick -- or kiss Shirlene goodbye.(
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Katie Lane's interest in romance was sparked in high school in the backseat of a '65 Mustang-okay, so maybe it wasn't romance as much as raging teenage hormones. Still, coupled with a wild imagination, those make-out sessions inspired many a steamy storyline along with a strong belief that true love does prevail. Katie lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico, with the owner of that Mustang and would love to hear from her readers.

MY THOUGHTS
LOVED IT
This is a very wonderful and humorous read about Branble, Texas filled with characters that are so believably wacky that they are believable.  Shirlene has spunk and the need to survive which will make you proud of her.  I want a Bubba for my own since he is just so darn hunky and down to earth.  As with any small town, there are the typical types like the ancient Moses, who knows everything that is happening much like my neighbor growing up but appears to be asleep.  Don't let any of the outward appearances fool you in this story, the characters are deep and full of fun.  Oh, and happily ever after?  I should hope so!  Overall, this is a fun and lighthearted read.  I can't wait for the next one.
