IT’S HERE! IT’S LIVE! 

From the moment you begin reading, Anne Jolin ropes deep emotions around your heart as you hold your breath through an intense prologue that sets the path for our main heroine, Rayne, aka. Ray.

A single mom to an adorable, spunky girl (Riley), Ray comes home to be the new veterinarian and has sworn off cowboys. Enter sexy and persistent cowboy, Owen Daniels. Rodeo bronco rider is coming back home to check on his leading lady in his life, Remington’s Lady, his injured horse who he left in the care of Ray Brookes, trusted family vet. It just turns out, he wasn’t expecting a woman; a beautiful woman who looked nothing like the old man Ray he remembers. This was Rayne “Ray” Brookes, the daughter.

These two begin a game of cat and mouse. Owen is denied a date but he’s not used to being told no. He likes a challenge. But, ladies, this isn’t some brooding alpha who aggressively tries to get what he wants; nope, this man is all cowboy gentleman and oh, my word, did he make me swoon. He pursued the woman he wanted to get to know. He instantly took a liking to her daughter and their growing friendship was one of the most precious things ever.

I fell in love with these three together.

Then….then, Ray finally had her walls pulled down and she became owned by Owen and it was wonderful!

“Every kiss we shared before was rivaled by this kiss, because with this kiss, he owned me. I was owned by Owen.”

This story has so much heart. You’ll start with a lump in your throat, you’ll laugh at the wonderful antics at the Willow Bay Stables family dinner table, you’ll swoon, you’ll get teary eyed and you’ll find yourself smiling with a happy sign in the end. Another Anne Jolin book that I loved. Her characters suck me in and stay in my heart. I loved reading Ray, Owen, and Riley’s story and I can’t wait for Rhys and Aurora’s next which we get a sneak peek of at the end of this book.

I highly recommend this! Snuggle up with cozy socks, a warm drink in hand and get lost in the Canadian countryside for a bit. Get Owned by Owen! ❤

SYNOPSIS

Owen Daniels lives his life eight seconds at a time. The thrill of anticipation that comes with sitting on twelve hundred pounds of untamed power is unparalleled. The adrenaline rush that floods his system when the chute opens is one of life’s most unique and natural highs.

Ride eight seconds bareback on a bucking bronco—that’s his life.

When Owen’s stock horse, Remington’s Lady, is injured midway through the rodeo circuit, he trailers her back home to Willow Bay, Alberta, to remain in the care of the local vet, Ray Brookes.

Months later, with a truck bed full of buckles, Owen comes home to collect his Lady from the man he trusted to help her recover. Only Ray happens to be short for Rayne, and Rayne happens to be a woman.

And this woman wants nothing to do with a cowboy fresh off the circuit. As far as she’s concerned, he can take his buckles, boots, and spurs right back on out of her life.

Will Rayne keep them from holding on to their eight-second ride? Or will love buck out of the chute in time for a perfect score?

HAPPY RELEASE WEEK TO K.C. LYNN’S ‘AN ACT OF OBSESSION’ + GIVEAWAY!

RELEASE DAY BLITZ BANNER AOO

Title: An Act of Obsession (Acts of Honor Series – Book 3)

Author: KC Lynn

Release Date: July 20, 2016

TBR Link: Goodreads

Oh man, friends, I’ve been waiting for this book! I follow K.C. Lynn’s group on facebook (and you should too) and when she gave us little hints and teasers of Sophie and Kolan, I knew I NEEDED this book, asap! It has been a torturous wait but worth every second.

From the moment I stumbled upon her free book by accident, ‘FIGHTING TEMPTATION’ (MEN OF HONOR SERIES BOOK ONE) I was hooked. I immediately delved into the next one, then the next one and it just continued from there. She’s become one of my favorite adult romance authors. Her characters are so 3-D, her stories always grip you and you walk away with a smile on your heart. You want to be friends with all her female leads and you wish you had the honor of being loved hard by these broken but beautiful men.

If you read the previous stories, you know about Kolan. He’s Katelyn’s brother who has had some rough history that everyone, and I mean, everyone knows about. I was always curious to see what really was going on behind the scenes of all that so I was definitely excited when his book was coming up. Then, K.C. released the prologue of the story which is in Sophie’s POV and MY. HEART. BROKE.

What this young woman went through and the actions she takes after a tragic and horrific experience had a constant squeeze on my heart the entire time I read this book.

I absolutely LOVED Kolan and Sophie together. I love what he provided for her. He was exactly what she needed. You don’t need to have read the previous books to read this one but I’m sure once you read it, you’ll want more and just have to start from book one and meet all these wonderful characters.

I’m never disappointed with a K.C. Lynn book. I love these characters. I love how she’s evolved their circle and I’m so excited that we’re gonna get more. So much more! If you love romance, some suspense, and a beautiful story with tons of heart, lots of laughs, and sexy goodness, definitely check this one out!

Synopsis

She’s beautiful yet scarred beyond repair. 

He’s powerful and lethal, in and out of the ring. 

One act of kindness brought Sophie Parish far more danger than she could have ever imagined. Now she’s on the run, leaving behind her family and the only dream she’s ever had.  

Retired EFC fighter Kolan Slade’s life has been one endless battle after another. He has a dark past with an even darker desire—the only one he’s ever known. 

Until he meets Sophie. 

Intrigued by her raw beauty and the secrets she’s trying to hide, Kolan craves to know who she is and what she’s running from. 

Protecting her becomes his obsession and he’ll sacrifice it all to save her. But in the end her love will have him questioning himself and everything he thought he knew.

Excerpt

Reaching my SUV, I place her feet on the ground and cage her against the passenger door, bracing both my hands on either side of her head. “And what about you, Lia?” I ask, dipping my head in close to hers. “Hmm? You know my secrets. What about yours?”

She might not know all of mine but she knows enough.

“What is it you want to know?” she asks, a slight tremble in her voice.

“I want to know who you are and where you came from. But more than anything, I want to know what you’re hiding under that scarf.”

The stark pain that enters her eyes strikes me to my fucking core. “Trust me, you don’t want to see what’s under there. I can’t even bear to look at it myself.”

“Nothing scares me.”

It’s a complete lie. She scares the hell out of me.

A heavy silence descends upon us, her pretty eyes wide and fearful.

“What are you so afraid of?” I ask.

Her breath hitches, emotion shining bright in her gaze. “Everything.”

There’s so much despair in that one word that I want to fucking kill whoever put it there. Unable to resist, I gently drop my forehead on hers, my jaw locking as I restrain myself from doing what I really want to do.

“I’m going to respect your privacy…for now. But one day, you’re going to tell me who made you so afraid. And if they’re still breathing—they won’t be for much longer.”

Her eyes fall closed, lip trembling as she tries to shield her pain from me. “Some secrets, Kolan, are best left unknown.”

“Not between us. The day will come when there will be no more secrets between us.”

Her eyes open, locking with mine, but she remains silent. I press my lips to her forehead then reach for the door handle. “Come on. Let’s go home.”
