Kade and Sky ROCK THE HOUSE!

Lorelei James is one of the few authors that can create characters that seduce the reader as well as one another. She certainly has another hit on her hands with Tied Up, Tied Down. Kade and Sky take the complexities of their relationship to form a life long committment AFTER the baby is born. This author creates characters that are real, that are dealing with real life situations and still manage to have the 'happily ever after' ending to their story. Ms. James books allow us to view a situation that occurs in real life with just the right amount of spice and love. KUDOS Ms. James for another "smokin' hot" love story with just the right flavor of real life to make it believeable. If I wasn't already a fan, I would be after reading Tied Up, Tied Down.

Kade Is Definitely NOT His Brother, Kane

~*~**~~*~*~*~* This is a HOT book!! Lorelei James has hit the nail on the head with this 4th book in the Rough Rider series. Kade is extremely accustomed to being confused with his identical twin brother, Kane, by any and everyone in the tri-county area. Well, his brother is a borderline womanizer, and one of these women, Skylar, decided to confront "Kane" for ditching her when she sees him in town. Yes, to make amends for what his brother did, Kade pretends to be Kane with Skylar, but he really does like her. This book is more than the sex scenes, it's an overall great story of someone who is used to people thinking he is someone else (and everything that goes along with that), pairing up with a very strong, independent woman who needs to learn how to trust ANYONE. Lorelei shows us that though the McKay family has a lot of similar characters, they are all very unique. There are moments in this story where Skylar treats Kade in a manner less than she should have and he just TAKES it! A real southern gentleman. Kade's relationship with his daughter, Eliza, is just precious. It's very hard to review this book, without giving away the story. If you mention one scene, you feel COMPELLED to mention another scene and then I have lost Lorelei all of her royalties, because I have went and told the whole story in my review. I read this story in just a few short hours last summer. I think this book has a very nice selection of action, mixed with family, romance, ranch life and love. Kade is one of my favorite West/McKay guys. He really is like the boy next door, lol! He gives Skylar exactly what she asks for, until that is not enough and Skylar puts a stop to it----------------and then the REAL fun begins! Great story!! Join the loreleijamesgang in the Yahoo! groups. Lorelei is very involved with her fans. Though this is the 4th book in the series, it is written in a way that it could be the first book, as you can keep up with everything. It does leave you wanting more, but in a good way. There are a lot of family members mentioned, that if you read the 3 books before, you would know their back story, but they are definitely just minor characters here, Lorelei does not leave you dry. For your enjoyment, you NEED to read Long Hard Ride (Rough Riders) ,Rode Hard, Put Up Wet (Rough Riders),Cowgirl Up and Ride (Rough Riders)---all out in hardcover, the rest of the books are in e-book still. is your best friend in this series. This family/really a CLAN ;-) has to be the best series I've read, next to the Harry Potter Septology, but Lorelei is definitely #1 in a class of her own. Definitely a keeper. Loved it in the e-book form I read last year, and I will be ordering now. ~*~**~~*~*~*~*


This is one of the greatest books I have read. I love how Kade is with his little girl and how the story is so wonderfully written. Lorelei James just gets better with each book she writes.


A personal favorite! I love all the RR series books, but those of you who love romance, family, hot men, real life characters, cowboys, real women who live real lives this is a winner. But don't stop here, read all the RR books you can. And then be ready to want to reread them.

Tied Up Tied Down

Skylar Ellison never planned on being a single parent, but when she found out that she was pregnant, and Kade McKay was down range on his family ranch until the following summer, that is exactly what she was for the first three months of her daughter's life. When Kade returned, and found out he was a father, he wanted to be there with Eliza Belle all the time. He told Sky he was moving in with them, so he could help her raise their daughter. Kade proposed, but she was having none of that, so he being a patient man, could wait her out. As they settled into a semi normal routine, Kade found himself loving Eliza and Sky more every day. He never knew that he could feel so complete, so he proposed again only to be turned down once again. Sky has major control issues, and Kade was hoping a gentle touch would loosen her up, but found she held on tight. She was afraid, and since the gentle approach wasn't working, he decided to take control in the bedroom, and give her a push. He knew she wanted him, but he was looking for forever, and was afraid she wasn't. When Kade showed her the passion that could be explosive between them, she found herself falling for him all over again. When she was thrust into the limelight at the rodeo serving as a family reunion, she became aware of the close-knit unit they all made, and was remorse at not having one of her own. The loud boisterous group made her feel welcome, but she was feeling overwhelmed by all the attention. Kade and Sky made their escape as soon as possible, which made her, feel guilty, but Kade assured her that the three of them were now his family. He knew it would take her time to get to know everyone, and feel comfortable around his nosy intrusive bunch. Kade was dismayed to realize that even though he had forced Sky to lighten up in the bedroom, she still had tight control over everything else. When an intruder at her Sky Blue factory threatened the lives of everyone there, she and Kade had a monstrous fight about her obsessive need for control, and the fact that she put their daughters life in danger. He left shortly after leaving Sky to wonder if he would ever come back. She knew things had to change or she would lose the best thing that had ever happened to her. Kade and Skylar are a fascinating couple with so much love to give. Kade had spent his entire life feeling interchangeable with all the men in his family. Only Sky treated him as the special individual he is. Sky had been disappointed in love, and it frightened her how wonderful Kade was to she and Eliza. They had issues to work out, but the friendship, love, and physical chemistry between them was very hot. A great next installment to the Rough Riders series!!
