The final Rough Riders book.
Settle in for the hot McKay romance that started it all...
The moment Carson McKay saw the sexy blonde at the dance hall, he wanted to throw her over his saddle and gallop hell-bent toward the closest church. Given his reputation as a lover and a fighter--not necessarily in that order--it wasn't surprising she gave him the cold shoulder. But he hadn't expected the mean right hook when he tried to steal a kiss.
Carolyn West might look sweet and innocent, but she's no fool. The good-looking cowboy with the heart-stopping smile didn't really want to marry her; he just wanted to take her for a test ride. But when he kisses her a second time, she doesn't fight her burning attraction to him...until she learns he's one of the McKay cowboys she's been warned about.
Carson doesn't care about the long-standing feud between their families; he knows that Carolyn was meant to be his. And the more intimate they become, the more Carolyn sees the real man behind the wild cowboy reputation--a man who wants the same forever kind of love she does...and who will lead her into a love story that spans fifty years.
Warning: Crazy, hot, sexy and sweet--good girl meets bad boy cowboy and they prove lust can last a lifetime.
Truly an amazing end to an amazing series. It was a ride of ups and downs, tears and laughter, joy and sorrow. Lorelei is such an amazing writer that not only did she take you along for the ride, but turned me into Carolyn McKay, minus the sexy cowboy husband. (Sorry honey) The thread of family love that began in One Hard Ride all the way through to Cowboy Take Me Away was highly apparent. The depth of love that Carolyn and Carson have for one another is amazing. I'm proud to say that I see that kind of love in my parents, and can only hope that my children see it in my marriage (even if Daddy isn't a cowboy).
I, for one, wish the book had been longer. That more McKay memories had been shared. If I had to pick just one favorite part, I'd be hard pressed to do so. But when Caro and Carson reached for each other at the end, declaring their undying love for one another, the realization that they did not want to go on without the other, well that is when I really broke down. It may have been Carolyn and Carson on the page, but it was my parents voices that I heard.
Amazing hot sex from the first moment they met. From up against the truck, to Cal taking Kimi in his brother's house after she became a grandma, to heading home after their anniversary party to rock that big ole house on it's foundation. Lorelei touched our libidos, and our hearts with the wild McKay's from beginning to the end. Every story must have an ending, and what a ride it has been. A happy place to stop with those that started it all, alive and well and still chasing their soul mates.
