If you like your cowboy romances clean but with a hint of contemporary drama, you'll appreciate the fact that Whiskey Creek Press is now offering the first five novellas in Karen Wiesner's Cowboy Fever series together for the first time. This is an enjoyable compilation that focuses on love relationships in the rural Texas panhandle town of Fever and, in particular, on the handsome male co-owners of Triple Aces Ranch.
The first novella titled WINGS OF LOVE, features a Fever born engineer and a wealthy, big city interior designer. Wings, the hero, is in love with Amanda but he fears dropping the big, bad "L-word" will send her packing.
In Book 2, LOSSES AND GAINES, Janaya's heart was broken when her older sister's manipulations caused Janaya to leave love behind. Lance is available again, but he's now a bitter man and not receptive to the woman who turned her back and stayed gone too long.
Moving on to Book 3, Jared Chapman had loved Alana since his grandmother took the orphaned girl in, but shy and reserved Jared could never bring himself to confess his love, and Alana married someone else. When Jared discovered Alana was trapped in an abusive marriage, a long-standing vow drove him to be there for Alana FOR ALWAYS.
Lubbock attorney April St. Clair grew up the dirt poor daughter of a cow poke, so loving one is out of the question. Shawn Jacobs is part owner of Triple Aces Ranch, but he's a cowboy and the local Lothario, too. In Book 4, one look at the out-of-place city girl has Shawn fighting two sudden desires--TAMING APRIL and becoming a one-woman man.
And, finally to bring this satisfying compilation of romance to a close, Ms. Wiesner offers up Book 5, THE ONLY ONE. A miscarriage and grief drove a wedge between Karla and Ken. Five long years of separation needs a final resolution and the choices are limited--a divorce or a new beginning.
Each of these gems is a quick, satisfying read and Ms. Wiesner keeps things interesting by varying the plots and character motivations, while building a community of memorable heroes and heroines that pop up in each other's stories. I know Ms. Wiesner has a recent new addition to this series and those who like this compilation will likely check out Book 6, DRIFTER'S HEART, as I plan to do. As a whole, this series is a fine way to get your western romance on.
Sexual Content Level: Sweet.
