The last McKay standing is knocked to his knees…

Three years ago, Dalton McKay looked across the altar and saw the woman he knew he’d love for the rest of his life…only it wasn’t his bride. That’s when he took the McKays’ love-’em-and-leave-’em reputation to new heights—fleeing the ceremony and Wyoming.

Now a family issue has brought Dalton back to Sundance, giving him a chance to prove to everyone—especially the woman he thought he lost—that he’s a changed man.

Aurora “Rory” Wetzler has fallen for cowboy hottie Dalton’s smooth-talkin’ ways too many times. So he’s determined to convince her he’s playing for keeps this go around? Fine. She’ll call that bluff—she can’t ignore their intense chemistry or resist smokin’ hot sex, but she’s not willing to gamble her heart again.

Dalton has plenty of fences to mend with the McKays, but his biggest fear is that Rory doesn’t believe they have a future. He’ll have to pull out all the stops to show her they belong together for the long haul.

Warning: Contains a sexy cowboy who tames his sassy lady love with his romantic and his kinky side. In explicit detail.

The Future of the ROUGH RIDERS

Slick from Guilty Pleasures: Since I just finished reading Redneck Romeo about the last McKay man standing, Dalton, I have to ask who will be the focus of book 16 and is that truly the end? Because I have to tell you having Ky driving and into girls is going to open up a whole can of worms about when the kid's stories are going to be told. 

No fun, I know, but no comment on Rough Riders book 16 yet...I'll clue you all in a bit further down the road. I get a bajillion questions about why I'm ending the Rough Riders series at book 16. And yes, I could probably write a second generation of McKays (Love Love Love my readers but you guys are driving me insane with the "When will you write Boone and Sierra's book?! Crazy rabid fans, I keep threatening that if you keep nagging me it'll be...never -- ha ha, yet I'd never do that because I want to know what happens too!) but I've always considered this series a western saga that DOES have an end. I've been fortunate that I've been allowed to write the books how I want, at the pace I want, with the subject matter I want--all with 100% publisher support. That is rare. Since the books have such a great following, there is that mindset to continue to "cash in" on the popularity of the series and characters. But I won't do that because at what point do the new books just become a rehash of the older books? I'd much rather end the series on a high note, at the height of popularity than wait until the series might be considered "tired" and I start to lose readers. Plus, I have lots of ideas, situations, characters and areas to explore in other fictional worlds. I hope readers come along for the ride.

RR-Release-Party (1)


  1. Fifteen books is quiet an achievement, even if there isnt a 16 I do think that Lorelei James will find something just as enticing for readers. Whether its the children story, or a new clan all together.

  2. I hate to see the RR series end :( but I know Lorelei will give us new exciting SEXY books to read! Loved the blog tour & give away! Thanks :)!

  3. Be proud of what you have done so far. If you write more then great if not then you did more then some people out there. Looking forward to more though.

  4. I applaud your foresight in not letting the series get stagnant, As much as I love the McKays, I have seen wonderful series go on for waaay too long. It diminishes the greatness that drew me to a series in the first place. More writers should have your wisdom.

  5. Great posting. 15 books is a lot...and I'm anxiously awaiting to see what is next! Great giveaway...thank you for the chance.

  6. I love the series and hate to see it end. I'm looking forward to what Lorelei will be writing next.

  7. I hate to see the RR series come to a close but 'm still catching up to finish it. So I still have some time with the McKay family. :) Thanks for this giveaway opportunity.
