James?s third Blacktop Cowboys contemporary western (after Saddled and Spurred, Mar.) offers fun erotic interludes set against some mild intrigue at the newly opened Split Rock Ranch and Resort in Muddy Gap, Wyo. Janie Fitzhugh is back in town after eight years away, dodging an abusive ex-boyfriend and helping resort owner Renner Jackson get his new place up and running. When Janie?s ex-husband, Abe Lawson, steps in to protect her, she?s surprised to find that he?s changed for the better, emotionally and physically, during her absence. Meanwhile, Renner must manage a professional relationship with his lender?s daughter, Tierney Pratt, who he thinks is spying on his business.
