High-Stakes Loving

King's Bluff, Wyoming #2

This is the second book in a series set in the quirky town of Kings Bluff, Wyoming. Here, the town people enjoy an interesting mix of Australian and US cultures and customs, like cricket and vegemite. But, even more interesting is the acceptance of unconventional relationships, ménage is seen as normal. Alpha males seem to abound, especially those who were in some form of special operations. These men are not only unique but diverse. No cookie cutter men allowed! The women are independent and can most definitely stand on their own two feet. Not everyone is thrilled with how the town is run and with an opening on the town council, the two views will collide with unexpected results and one unexpected candidate! Though it felt like a long wait between books, it was well worth the wait as this book is just as good as the first one. (BTW, you do not need to read the first book in this series to enjoy this one but the characters in the first book do play a role in this one.) I loved this book and what wasn’t to love? Two hot, sexy alpha men going after an interesting woman who will make them work for her love but while they are working for her trust, they are going to have fun playing bedroom games. Oh, and to add even more interest, there is a 20 year old murder mystery waiting to be solved. Yes, this is a complex book that is well worth reading, maybe even more than once.

Reagan is the town librarian and she loves her job which is why when a local candidate is running on a platform which would close the library, she quickly signs up to run against him. This is way outside her comfort zone but she can’t not do anything! Quinn and Mike are former SEALS and private investigators. They are definitely interested in investigating Reagan but don’t want to scare her away either. When they finally decide to make their move, they quickly find out how explosive this relationship can become when a skeleton is dug up on property that Reagan’s family sold and it looks like it may be her mother and that she was murdered! Who did such a thing? Learning the truth may end Quinn and Mike’s chance at making Reagan theirs.
