Product Description

Dead Heat Ranch Novella, #0.5

Note: This novella was previously published in the Some Like It Hot Anthology. Although the story has not changed, this version contains a short bonus scene.

New York Times bestselling author Nicole Edwards is heating things up with Boots Optional, a sexy new ménage novella which is the first book in a hot new series called Dead Heat Ranch.

Grace Lambert is familiar with hard work, long days, and handsome cowboys. She’s been working for her family’s dude ranch since she was old enough to ride a horse and she’s not afraid to get her hands dirty. What she is afraid of is the heat that’s been generating between her and not one, but two sexy cowboys who’ve set their sights on her. And each other.

Grant Kingsley and Lane Miller have both had their eyes on Gracie for years, but the feisty cowgirl has managed to keep them at bay. As far as they are concerned, cowboys don’t give up, and neither of them is ready to give up just yet. Not on her and not on the heat that transpires between the two of them.

Find out what happens when the sultry Texas nights get as hot as the fierce Texas days.

In true Nicole Edwards tradition - this is a great read full of wonderful characters and a stunning cowboy setting.

This menage is very similar to another she has written - but there are enough differences to enjoy it as a new story.

It's a great introduction to a new series and I'm looking forward to reading the rest.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wanted: Desperate need of Cowgirl Boots, like NOW!! With a little Grant and Lane on the side! HAWT!! 25 July 2014
By Shera ~ Book Lovers Obsession - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I’ll start off by saying, I’ve never liked cowboy stories, BUT Grace, Grant and Lane have wrangled me like a wild horse and tied me up, leaving me wanting More, More, MORE!!!! I do believe I just got turned into a true Cowboy lover forever for sure!!!!

Grace lives on Dead Heat Ranch and is one of 5 sisters of the ranch owner. She’s beautiful, smart, funny and she’s a Cowgirl (you know they are all sexy). I love her attitude, spunk and her FIRE. Let’s not forget her foul mouth, love that too! That girl takes no crap from anyone, especially these boys. She is my kinda gal for sure. She has no interest in these boys…. Or does she?

“ Not interested in what your sellin cowboy”

Grant Kingsley….Oh Hot sexy Grant. Can you give me a shopping list like that? I will SURELY deliver it to you. He’s been on the ranch since he was 19 years old and has changed in so many ways. Grant loves the females, but he’s also got an attraction to males….ONE in particular, Lane……

Lane Miller is the best Wrangler on the ranch. He is funny and totally NOT afraid to say whats on his mind OR what he wants for that matter. He is funny, sexy and he has wanted Grant for a LONG Time.

“Such dirty words for such a pretty girl. “Lane whispered, his voice dangerously close to seductive”

They want each other AND they want Gracie, is this a Problem or is it the perfect concoction?? I will go with the perfect Grace, Grant and Lane Smore’s Sandwich. YUM!!! They are determined to have it all, all three of them together and boy does when it happens…. Douse me with water because it was HAWWWWWTTT. Like I need a pair of cowgirl boots, NOW!!!!

“Sorry. You can leave ‘em on if you want. Boots are Optional”

I love the banter that goes on between the three of them and Grace with her sisters. This book is SMOOOOKIN hot. I can’t wait for Betting On Grace. It’s not coming out soon enough because I need to know more about these three and at the very end, Nicole Edwards sets you up for alittle of Mercy and Cody!!

Mercy is Grace’s sister and I have a feeling that story is going to be interesting and i hope we get it!! A little snippit from Mercy and Cody, that makes you KNOW their story will be just as hot … “ Yep, She was pretty damned sure that she’d found something she never, not in her wildest dreams, expected to find on this ranch….Her Kryptonite”

5.0 out of 5 stars HOT HOT HOT! 22 July 2014
By Casey C - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Addict. I. Am. Such. An. Addict.

I seriously canNOT get enough of Nicole Edwards' work! There is not a paragraph in all of her books that I don't absolutely love.

All of her characters, in every single series, have come to life in her work, and it's just amazing to read her stuff!

I've read the Club Destiny series and the Alluring Indulgence series. Now I'm starting the Dead Heat Ranch series with this absolutely amazingly sexual Boots Optional novella!

ZOMG!! I won an autographed copy of this book during an event and I recieved it just yesterday! Took me all of a few hours to read and those few hours were seriously epic!

What I loved most about this is that Nicole Edwards just got right into the down and dirty in this book! Didn't take a moment to even get to know these characters! So amazing!! I couldn't put this down, not for a second.

Grant, Lane, and Grace are going to be amazing to read more about in Betting on Grace! I seriously cannot wait!!

5.0 out of 5 stars So Hott!!! 30 July 2014
By Sandra Two Book Pushers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is my first Nicole Edwards book. My blog partner loves her so she was the one to put it on her list but when I saw the synopsis, I had to sneak it in onto mine as well. I already know is will be reading another one since I already bought Betting on Grace and starting on release day.

Grant and Lane work on a Dude Ranch in Texas and one night while they were hanging out in Grant's cabin things get hot. They were both holding the attraction to each other but they just couldn't take it anymore and they went there. What Lane did not expect was what would happen next but he was very excited about the possibilities....

Gracie is the daughter of the owner of the Dude Ranch and she also worked there. She was a hard shell to crack, she has known the two cowboys for years and tried her best to keep her distance. She was very attracted to both Grant and Lane but she didn't want them knowing that, they have been asking her out for the past two years. But she didn't want to get involved especially after what she had seen....

Grant and Lane both knew that Gracie liked them but was fighting it. Lane also knew she was up to a little fun from what he saw the other night. Could they all get what they wanted? Can they actually figure it out? Would feelings be in it or just sex?

This book is f*cking hot! I thought I was going to have to pick up smoking after reading it. I didn't but my god I was worked up. It is short, Hot and sweet. I can't wait to read Betting On Grace and luckily I don't have to wait long. Nicole has gained a fan...

Quotes:

Something to ease the pressure hopes that Grant would see that there was something between them even if he were scared to admit it.

Yeah, this wasn't going to easy. Not on any of them.

It was like she was at a buffet after spending an eternity without food. She wanted it all and she wanted it right now.

MY THOUGHTS~

I chose to read this book because I absolutely LOVE author Nicole Edwards and I was provided with a copy for review.
I'm generally not a fan of novellas/short stories, but I didn't hesitate to pick this up. I knew it would be amazing because Nicole Edwards is an exceptional writer. Boots Optional rocked my boots from start to finish and left me pining away for the next book!
As always, the writing is perfection, I've come to expect nothing less from author Nicole Edwards. She is always thorough and consistent. The characters are well developed and we really get to know them throughout the book.
The word "hot" doesn't aptly describe Boots Optional, because Nicole Edwards has a way of portraying what the characters are experiencing on a deeper level leaving you completely immersed in it all. Many readers will tell you that the FSOG trilogy completely broadened their literary horizons and opened up a world of different and risque genres for them. While that remains true for me, author Nicole Edwards took that a step further in my opinion. She introduces us to even more "non-traditional" relationships and gives the reader a unique perspective of it all. I never ventured to read anything besides M/F before I picked up Nicole's Alluring Indulgence series. Once I did that and experienced reading M/F/M, M/M/F, and then eventually M/M, I loved all of them! I don't believe it was the actual relationship dynamic/status that did it for me either. It was 100% Nicole Edwards writing and the way she evokes so many different emotions and ways of thinking and feeling. This author is phenomenal without a doubt!
I would and do recommend this novella as well as any and all work by Nicole Edwards to any and everyone I have the chance to! If you're looking for something a bit or a lot outside the box with a big dose of crazy sexy cowboys, this is the author you MUST READ!
Can't wait for book #1 of the Dead Heat Ranch, Betting on Grace!
