Erotic Romance, Ménage or more, Western Romance
First in a new series about some hard-riding rodeo cowboys...and the women who can rein them in.
Sports therapist Lainie Capshaw has been rehabilitating injured cowboys long enough to know that a charming western drawl combined with a fine physical form doesn't mean you fall for the man.
So no one is more surprised than Lainie when she finds herself involved with not one, but two different men: Hank Lawson, a bullfighter, and Kyle Gilchrist, a bull rider. Lainie feels guilty about her two-timing, but it doesn't keep her from doubling her fun-that is until Hank catches her with Kyle.
She's shocked that Hank isn't mad. But she's more shocked to learn Hank and Kyle are hometown buddies. But when the men offer to share her-in every way-she knows that she's going to have to choose the one man who can give her the ride of her life.

It's Lorelei James y'all. What else do I need to say?
Corralled was so much more than I expected. I expected hot cowboys and a strong heroine I could identify with. I expected the fun story and the way Lorelei James pulls me into her world with ease. But knowing it was a mÃ©nage story, I also had the expectation that the two best friends would be eager to share lovely heroine, Laney, and that they would be a united front in bringing her over to the dark side.
Not so much.
And frankly, that was refreshing.
These two childhood best friends discover they are both dating the same girl. She won't choose so they come up with the idea of sharing, mÃ©nage style. The only thing is, neither really wants to share her. Neither thinks that a polyamorous marriage is in their future. They expect her to pick one of them. Competitiveness ensues. Jealousy abounds. There are most definitely hot mÃ©nage encounters which they all enjoy (especially Lainie), but unlike all the other mÃ©nage stories I've read, the focus is on the one on one moments.
There were so many unexpected surprises to this story. So many twists and turns that took the book far from where I expected it to go. I hesitate to even give a summery, sending you to the publisher's description instead; for fear that I will spoil any of the fun.
Suffice it to say, two cowboys team up to spend three weeks traveling the rodeo circuit and wooing med tech Lainie Capshaw, the daughter of a famed bull rider who died on the horns of his ride when she was eight. Lainie never expected to date one cowboy, much less two. And don't expect her to choose, because she just can't.
All three find themselves at a crossroad in their lives. Together they unearth their individual pasts and confront their present lives in order to make a choice for their future.
Expect to be sucked in, blush, scream in frustration, cheer in celebration, be surprised and be satisfied. Corralled is as wild and unpredictable as a buckin' bronc. Enjoy!
