The strongest bonds are the ones unseen Rough Riders series Businesswoman Skylar Ellison is firmly in control of her life. So getting tangled up with a sexy Wyoming cowboy-and conceiving a baby in the parking lot of a honky-tonk-wasn’t in her plan. Since it appears the daddy has taken off for greener pastures, the only thing to do is pull up her bootstraps and carry on alone. Cattle rancher Kade McKay returns home after a year on the range, and is knocked for a loop when he learns he’s the father of a three-month-old baby girl. When Skylar refuses to marry him, Kade grits his teeth, moves in and plays house by her rules to prove he’s a man in for the long haul. Despite Skylar’s insistence they are to remain strictly parenting partners, their old passions flare hot as a brush fire, spurring Kade to demand absolute sexual surrender from the headstrong woman. Skylar willingly submits her body to the hot-blooded cowboy but she’s leery of handing Kade the reins to her heart. Can Kade convince Skylar the wicked sex games aren’t a temporary distraction? Or will he have to bust out the ropes to show her he wants to be tied to her.forever? Warning: this book contains: no holes barred kinky sex scenes, wicked rope play, blunt language, and yowza lots of hot cowboy nekkidness.


This is the first book on the other side of the family. Kade is a cousin from all the McKay’s with a C from the previous books and he’s story actually started on Cowgirl Up and Ride. He and Skylar dated during a few weeks and when she realized he was lying to her and pretending to be his brother, she ended things with him. But what they didn’t knew was that on the only night during sex they forgot about condoms and now 12 months later there’s a new baby for the wild McKay’s.
The thing is after Skylar dumped him, Kade decided to live on the mountains without a cellphone or connection with the normal excepted for a few talks with the family occasionally, so Skylar never managed to tell him about the pregnancy and thought he just dumped her.
After months now baby Elisa is already born when they actually managed to talk, of course the whole family knows about it and Elisa is such cute little girl and the first girl on the new generation. Without knowing about Elisa he actually wanted to get Skylar back and tried to date her once again.
I loved how cute and sweet Kade was with Elisa and he actually helped Skylar on her crazy business. He’s a perfect cowboy and these two deserved to be together. Skylar suffered on her past and now is having a normal life for an exchange. This book was a great addiction to the series.
