I have had the chance to read three of the stories in the 12 Alarm Cowboys boxed set. Oh my goodness if the rest of the set is as awesome as these three, well this is a must have set! 

Cowboy's Match is the first chance I have had to read anything by Lexi Post. Oh my goodness this lady can write a hot story! This may be my first taste of her work but it most certainly will not be my last!

Lacey Winters has been through a lot. She has not had an easy life and has suffered a lot of heartache. She has built up walls around her heart to try to protect herself. She now works The Poker Flat Nudist Resort. She is a blessing to her boss and handles everything and anything that needs done. Her work family at the The Poker Flat Nudist Resort are a tight knit group and very protective of each other. I loved how this group of people has been brought together to form caring family. 

When tragedy strikes with a fire at the resort Lacey does not expect to run into her ex-boyfriend Cole Hatcher. Cole certainly did not expect to run into Lacey either.

Cole is the perfect firefighter/cowboy. He's strong, passionate, charming, caring, inquisitive, and of course incredibly handsome. He started training to be a firefighter after an event from his and Lacey's past. I will let you read the story for the rest of the details there because I sure do not want to spoil anything for you. Cole has been through many changes since the last he seen Lacey. One thing that hasn't changed is the intense attraction between these two. It's a darn good thing that Cole is a fireman because these two are flammable when they are together. WOW! I didn't know a Popsicle could be that hot!

There are many secrets and regrets from the past that are holding Lacey and Cole apart. They both have a lot to deal with in order for Lacey to be the forever match to light Cole's fire. 

Cowboy's Match has a great storyline full of drama, suspense, some really nice steamy scenes, twist and turns I certainly did not see coming, a couple of very dramatic secrets are revealed and an incredible reunion romance. 

I can not wait to read more of Lexi Post's work. I will be looking forward to reading more great stories from another very talented author. 

Sabrina York is one of my very favorite steaming hot authors. This lady is called her Royal Hotness for a reason. She has a tremendous talent for putting together a captivating storyline with a lot of steaming hot passion. 

Come Hell Or High Water is part of the Stud Ranch Series where Ford and Crystal met. I loved the chance to catch up with the characters I met in The Real McCoy and see how things were going on the Stud Ranch. Come Hell or High Water will read just fine as a stand alone though if you haven't had a chance to read The Real McCoy. 

Lisa Binder has returned to her hometown to recover from the lying cheating men from her past. She has had enough of bad relationships and just wants to bake. I found a quick connection with Lisa. I liked this girl's spunk. She has a fun attitude even though she's been hurt. She's smart, charming, and one heck of baker if the way the Silver family devours her treats is any indication. 

One the hotel Lisa is staying in catches fire during the night, she doesn't think she is going to make it out. Until her Hero, Cade Silver waltzes in through the flames and debris to save her from the demons of fire. 

OK, how is possible not to instantly adore this story right there? I thought Cade was adorable from the beginning  of the story  but when he sweeps Lisa off her feet and out to safety, it certainly was an awe moment for me. 

I really enjoyed  watching Cade and Lisa get to know each other again. The attraction between these two goes from smoldering hot to combustible flames. 

I like the concept of the Stud Ranch it  is a really interesting idea and adds some humorous scenes to this awesome story.

There are a few dramatic moments that had me holding my breath and flipping pages just as fast as I could.  Cade has a dangerous career and there are moments when he is in serious danger. Sabrina York has done a fabulous job once again. Come Hell or High Water is one really awesome story. There are some really great steamy hot scenes, the romance is great, and the drama is very suspenseful. 

I hope we get another chance to visit the Stud Ranch. I think I seen the makings of another great romance towards the end of this story. I can't wait for Ms. York's next release. No matter what genre it is, I know it will be fabulous and a great read.

Elle James is one of my favorite authors for a romantic suspense story with a lot of hot steamy moments. Hellfire, Texas is the first book in a new series. If Hellfire, Texas is any indication (and I'm sure it is) of the rest of the series, well I can't wait for book number two!

Kinsey Phillips  has taken all she is going to take from her dirty, rotten, abusive boyfriend. She doesn't know where to turn so she returns to her hometown. She doesn't have any family left and doesn't know what could possibly go wrong next when her car catches fire. Little does she know that is probably the best thing that could happen to her.  

Becket Grayson is just an all around good guy. He is kind, passionate, strong, brave, sweet, and oh yeah did I mention handsome? He is everything that Kinsey's ex is not! When he happens upon a burning car on the road he stops to help.  It isn't long before he discovers the lady in distress was a neighbor and friend to his brothers growing up. Once he discovers that Kinsey's is in trouble, he is quick to come to her rescue. He takes her home and the Grayson family rallies around her. If they have anything to say about it the buttheaded ex will not get close to Kinsey again. 

I could go on and on about this story because I truly did love it. It just was not possible for me to set this book down. I do not want to spoil your pleasure by telling you too much about the story though. So I will tell you that it is one awesome suspense story with some really steaming hot scenes. I really enjoyed watching Becket and Kinsey get to know each other again. The spark of attraction between these two turns into fireworks quite quickly. I didn't know you could do that on a four wheeler. You will know what I'm talking about when you grab your own copy and read this great story.

The whole Grayson family was a joy to meet. I love when families are included in the storyline. I find it adds so much more to the story. I think that is why I love series so much. You get to know so much more about the family and community as the series progresses. 

Hellfire, Texas is one of those terrific stories that I started and could not put down until I reached the end. This story is jammed pack with lots of drama and breath taking suspense. So be prepared to sit down and hang on for the ride when you start reading this one.

I have a feeling we lucky readers may get to know more about the Grayson family and the community with the Hellfire series. I know I for one can not wait to see what Ms. James comes up with next. Her books are always wonderful and never disappointment me.
