I never know how to rate collections of short stories. There were a few that were really good, but some that were really not. ( )

As a reader, what do you expect from a book subtitled “Erotic Romance for Women”? I expected erotica, especially after reading Lorelei James’ foreword that the stories would take “elements of a traditional western and adding in erotic romance.” My reaction was what fun. Imagine my disappointment when the element missing from most of the stories in this anthology is the erotic one.

Okay, granted one person’s erotic moment might be another’s ho-hum. But I think we all agree that at its core erotica should give readers the little thrill of sexual promise, the visceral excitement of bedplay to come. Descriptions of body parts might be included, but aren’t necessary.

Of the 15 stories in this collection, however, only 2 qualify as erotic in my book. The others straddle the line between cute, often interesting romances or ho-hum. The collection runs the gamut of time periods from the late 1800s to contemporary, the only connection being that one of the characters is a cowboy.

Four stories adequately give the feel of the collection: two erotica and two of the better offerings.

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

There's a reason Western romance novels never go out of fashion. The cowboy is an iconic figure embodying the dichotomy of the fiercely independent, earthy alpha male juxtaposed with the male as a nurturer and protector. Cowboys take care of their women in every possible way. Wild and wayward women are gentled by the scent of horse and cow and the sight of sun-kissed skin, the feel of work-hardened thighs and arms, and the sound of a deep-voiced Texas drawl. Contributors at the top of the Western romance genre, including Charlene Teglia, Randi Alexander, and Cat Johnson, have corralled here strong and memorable characters ranging from a rodeo star and a cop on horseback to a feisty female gunslinger. Traversing romantic settings from Montana, Texas, California, Mexico, and the Outback of Australia, the stories in Cowboy Lust are risky and risque, full of studs in spurs hot enough to send you to a vacation on a dude ranch!… (more)
