Two HOT cowboys. Two tough-as-spurs heroines. These two previously published, newly revised and expanded, smoking hot stories by #1 New York Times bestselling author Lora Leigh will leave readers breathless and begging for more!
Melina is one of two gorgeous twin daughters, the clever and considerate one who always spared her parents the humiliation of what her sister Maria had wrought. But now, Melina is finally ready to stand up for herself and seize control of her life until she is kidnapped by a cowboy, named Jardin, who is dead-set on settling the score with her family. There’s only one catch: In capturing Melina, this tough, rough, hunk of a man has actually found a way to unleash her greatest fantasies, body and soul. . .
Beautiful, spirited Angel Manning has always longed to experience the power of her ancestors’ most precious heirloom. Her mother once told her that the legendary Irish torque would lead Angel to the one man worthy of possessing her heart. But when Angel learns that her father, now a widower, has sold the torque to the notorious two-timer Jack Riley, she is furious. Of course she plans to take back what is rightfully hers, by whatever means necessary. But the fate of the ancient Druids works in mysterious ways. . .Could it be that this slick, smooth-talking cowboy was destined to satisfy Angel’s deepest desires all along?

Cowboy and the Captive
Melina has always covered for her twin sister.  But when trusting her family resulted in Melina being in jail and severely injured, she said no more.  But when Maria faces prison will Melina stick to her guns?  Cowboy and the Captive is a re-release by Lora Leigh.  Luc nearly died the last time he crossed paths with this family.  But when a friend asks a favor, Luc figures he can use it to get a bit of vengeance.  I love that Melina refuses to cater to Luc.  Even if she doesn’t have the upper hand she finds her back bone and bows to no one.  Ms. Leigh gave Melina a tough journey.  Seen as something less than by her parents, she refuses to allow them to ruin her life.   I love that Ms. Leigh gives her a man struggling to see the woman he has.  Luc’s rage finds a quick death under Melina’s honor.  I thoroughly enjoyed this story.  It was a great quick read.
Cowboy and the Thief
Angel’s family has been blessed by the torque for several generations.  But when her lack of belief and sharp tongue led to Jack buying it, she will do whatever is necessary to get it back…even steal.
Cowboy and the Thief by Lora Leigh is another re-release.  I enjoyed Jack.  He hid much of himself behind a charming façade.  I love that Ms. Leigh gave him an Irish spitfire in Angel.  She was fire banked in ice until Jack entered her world.  Together Jack and Angel lit each other up.  They were not able to hide from each other and I enjoyed seeing their true colors.  This story by Ms. Leigh was well written, steamy and well worth your time.
