In the new Blacktop Cowboys® Novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Hillbilly Rockstar strange bedfellows find common ground after the lights go down…

Flower child, vegetarian and humanitarian Harlow Pratt and gruff and strapping cattle ranch foreman Hugh Pritchett have been taunting each other for years. Hugh thinks she’s nothing but a spoiled rich girl, and he’s had enough of that life with his ex-wife. Harlow thinks Hugh is an ill-mannered trouble-maker who wouldn't know fun if it bit him on his tight denim-clad butt.

When they’re forced together at the Split Rock Ranch and Resort, everything changes. They might be polar opposites, but working out their differences skin to skin, in the dark, seems to help their incompatibility a lot. But when trouble from both their pasts comes calling, Harlow and Hugh have no one else to lean on. Can they trust one another enough to make it through the hard times together… or will their tentative truce fall apart?


Wrapped and Strapped by Lorelei James was a sweet romance with TONS of heat! Although, this wasn’t a favorite of mine from the Blacktop Cowboys series, doesn’t mean I don’t recommend it. I recommend this book to all of those cowboy-lovin’ romance readers out there. And let’s face it, the author is Lorelei James, so you know the sex scenes are going to be SCORCHING hot and intensely erotic! This is exactly why I keep coming back for more.

Hugh Pritchett screwed up BIG TIME years ago. He has been burned in the past by a vile woman and he is very leery at going through that again. His heart was broken and it can’t take another blow. A night of passion turns into regret and he is left to wallow in his mistakes.

Harlow Pratt, the woman with the biggest heart, never stays in one place for too long. Hugh just happened to make it much easier to leave as soon as possible. Her heart was broken by Hugh years ago, and when she fled, she promised she would never come back. A family matter forces her to return and face her family and Hugh head on. She knows she will never be who her family wants her to be, but with Hugh, she wasn’t expecting a change in him. She also wasn’t expecting to still feel things for him, even though she knows it will never work out. They can’t stand each other, right? Harlow is determined to not fall back in the same pattern with Hugh. But the attraction is just too strong. When they finally give in to their desires, they are putting their hearts at risk once again.

Even though this book didn’t make my heart pound like the previous installments, it packed no less of an emotional punch. It’s sweet. It’s sexy. It’s a scorcher for sure. The connection between the characters are there and I believe the heroine was the big winner for me in this story. This was worth the read!

About Lorelei James

Lorelei James is the New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author of contemporary erotic western romances set in the modern day Wild West and also contemporary erotic romances. Lorelei’s books have been nominated for and won the Romantic Times Reviewer’s choice Award, as well as the CAPA Award. Lorelei lives in western South Dakota with her family…and a whole closet full of cow girl boots.

Why do I have a particular fondness for all things western? Well, I’m a fourth generation South Dakotan, living in the Black Hills, which is chock-full of interesting characters, including cowboys, Indians, ranchers, and bikers. The geographical diversity of the surrounding area showcases mountains, plains, and badlands. Living in and writing about rural settings gives me a unique perspective, especially since I’m not writing historical westerns. Through my fictional world, I can show the ideals and the cowboy way of life are still very much alive.
