Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.
Today, we're joining TLC Book Tours for a stop along their current promotion starring the latest release from author Maisey Yates! If you've not joined her bandwagon of fans, it's high time you did, so grab your best pair of boots (or sneaks!) and your cowboy hat (or ball cap...sorry, I don't do ten gallons....), and saddle up because we're hitting the trails with today's book of choice...
A Gold Valley Novel, Book 3
About the book...
In Gold Valley, Oregon, forbidden desire just might turn into the love of a lifetime…
When Lindy Parker lost her cheating husband, she gained a vineyard. She’ll do anything for Grassroots Winery, including teaming up with the hottest devil she knows, rancher Wyatt Dodge. Wyatt is her ex’s friend and has an ego as big as the bulls he rides. But in spite of that, disciplined Lindy has always wanted him…
Lightning struck Wyatt Dodge the first time he saw Lindy Parker. But there were two problems with that: she was married to his friend, and Wyatt doesn’t do strings. But now Lindy is free, and the two of them can finally explore the heat that’s burned between them for so long. But can Lindy make this good time cowboy decide on forever?
Welcome back to Gold Valley, where the only think more memorable than the sunsets are the people.
This time around we're getting the scoop on Lindy Parker...two years divorced, and the woman behind Grassroots Winery, she's a force to reckoned with, but that doesn't mean the gossip doesn't fly. It shouldn't with how her ex exited, especially with his very sisters standing by their sister-in-law instead of their can't-keep-it-in-his-pants-good-for-nothing brother. Well, I suppose he was good for something...the winery, to be exact, because without him, she'd not have had the chance at the future she's currently molding, or at least not nearly as easily. Thing is...she's not that girl. She's not the one to date, marry, ditch, and profit. She wanted the whole cake, the love with the love of life, and the fact that she's left with only half that dream has made her keep her heart close guarded. True, once you've made it in, it's for keeps, but getting there is the hard part, and I can't say I blame her. She was wounded something terrible, but I have to admire how she came back from it (mostly) on her own terms, and I didn't see her letting those walls down as a sign of her losing control, but rather gaining a new stronghold...and let's not forget possibly the heart of a certain rough and tumble cowboy.
Okay, so truth be told...I was all prepared to despise Wyatt Dodge, right from the start. I mean, he was arrogant, crass, stubborn, and took some things in life a little to less than serious...but then I got to know him (better man...sorry, Dickens relapse). You see beneath the "good time" cowboy is a man that's been struggling with his lost youth, his poorly sought venues of affection, the ultimatum issued by dearly wronged dad, and despite his bravado and need for control, a lack of ever feeling like he's enough...just him, nothing else. I know, sounds sappy, right? STOP RIGHT THERE...he doesn't do sappy. He does do weaken your knees, tear down your resolve, and flirt you out of your knickers, but as much as he can be a pain in the behind, he has a good heart.
In the end, it was another GREAT READ from an author who totally turned my head on the whole cowboy themed Contemporary Romance niche...and THANK YOU for doing it! I've loved my time in Gold Valley and can't wait for another chance to visit with old friends and meet sizzling new potential couples. Yep, LOVED IT. Now it's your turn...and don't worry about it being such and such a number in a series, it works as a stand alone, so choose your entry point and GO!
About the author...
New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author Maisey Yates lives in rural Oregon with her three children and her husband, whose chiseled jaw and arresting features continue to make her swoon. She feels the epic trek she takes several times a day from her office to her coffee maker is a true example of her pioneer spirit.
In 2009, at the age of twenty-three Maisey sold her first book. Since then it’s been a whirlwind of sexy alpha males and happily ever afters, and she wouldn’t have it any other way. Maisey divides her writing time between dark, passionate category romances set just about everywhere on earth and light sexy contemporary romances set practically in her back yard. She believes that she clearly has the best job in the world.
