A cowboy, a carpenter and a big surprise in this Spicy Latte read.

Thunderstruck

Thunderstruck (Thundermountain Brotherhood) by Vicki Lewis Thompson is a must read cowboy romance and a fabulous series. It has all the elements of a great Blaze book too- a well written story, lots of passion and intense heat all packed inside a sexy trademark cover!

Damon Harrison was raised in Wyoming and would do just about anything for his foster family. So, when he commits to a construction project back at the ranch, he reluctantly agrees to hire a contractor to save him time. Damon doesn’t believe that women should be involved at a construction site. There is just no way she could be better at building than him? Not one for long term relationships, Damon’s only interest with building a foundation is one that involves a hammer and nails.

When Damon agreed to work on a house back in his hometown with Phil he’s expecting to hang out with a guy who knows his way around a construction site. Imagine his surprise when he shows up and instead of meeting “Phil” he is introduced to Philomena Turner. Will he still be able to work on this project or will he disappoint his family and leave town?

Philomena Turner is a fantastic carpenter and has earned her way into this new job. Uninterested in settling down with a hot shot cowboy what will she do when she sets eyes on Damon? This intense attraction will derail their renovations unless they can figure out a way to harness it.

Damon thinks he has Phil all figured out.  Maybe a quick fling and then finish the job before he heads back to California. What happens when she offsets his plans?

Business is business but can this nomadic cowboy settle down to finally have a home of his own? Phil is willing to play along with this game but it will cost her. Can she survive with her heat in tact?

From the delicious and sexy cover to the very last page this Vicki Lewis Thompson book is a must read! Discover Thunder Mountain Brotherhood and find yourself a cowboy! There are so many on Vicki’s backlist to choose from. I always enjoy reading Vicki’s books and look forward to posting my review of A Cowboy Under the Mistletoe next month.

I received this book from the author for a fair and honest review. This spicy read has just enough sizzle to make you tingle 2 Jalepenosand is for mature readers, 18+.

Thank you for your interest! This is going to be great! Years ago before I started my blog I read your Nerd Series books and that is how I discovered you :). Aw, that’s great to hear.  Bless Kelly Ripa for giving me so much publicity!

That must have been so much fun to research!  Did you have a favorite book in the series?

Probably the first one, Nerd in Shining Armor, because I wrote that without a contract, which was a very freeing experience, but The Nerd Who Loved Me is my second favorite.  Oh, wait, I loved Nerd Gone Wild, set in Alaska.  That was my Northern Exposure book, LOL.  It’s hard to choose.  They were a blast to write and I had nerds emailing me giving me tips and research advice.  It was a great run.

First, if we were meeting at a coffee shop I’d be drinking a Latte 🙂 What would you order?

Pumpkin Spice Latte if they have it!  I love flavored lattes and get them whenever I stop in a coffee shop.  Peppermint is great, too!

Thanks so much for taking the time to answer a few questions.  Your books vary from Cowboys to Sexy Nerds to Werewolves and so much more, do you have a favorite?

Thanks for asking me to do this!  Well, you’re asking me to choose my favorite child, LOL.  I can’t choose.  Each type of story has a different appeal for me, and I love writing them all.  I fall in love with the hero every time, whether he’s a nerd, a cowboy, or a werewolf!

8 Tantalizing Tidbits:

 1. A Must read book and why? Huckleberry Finn, if you haven’t.  Nobody nails dialogue like Mark Twain.  I heart his work.

2. What is one place that I should see if I visit your hometown? Saguaro National Monument.  We have two parks on either side of town where the roads wind through majestic stands of these amazing cacti.  Saguaros only grow in the Sonoran Desert and it takes a least 60 years for them to sprout that first arm. Some of the huge, multi-armed ones have been around for more than 200 years.

3.  One thing readers would be surprised to know about you. I don’t watch TV. I have no cable or dish service. When I hear of a great show that I need to watch, I’ll buy the season of it, like Big Bang Theory, which I adore. But a lot of the time, my TV screen is blank because I’m writing, writing, writing!

4. If you had an all expenses paid trip anywhere in the world for research, where would you go? Antartica! It’s a pricey trip but I desperately want to see the wildlife that abounds there. It might be the last untouched place on Earth.

5. What is your guilty pleasure? Browsing in Michael’s Craft Store! I’m not crafty, but I love decorating my house, which is my major hobby. I go crazy with garlands and wreaths, changing them out for each season. I have a closet full of seasonal decorations from Michael’s.

6. What are you afraid of? Getting lost! I now have a GPS on my phone, thank God, and recently I used it to find an Ace Hardware store I’d never been to. This is in my town, mind you, but I still get confused. We have a huge shopping mall with a Penny’s in the middle and multiple doors out into the mall. I can’t go in Penny’s I’ll take the wrong door and wander in the mall for days.

7. Would you rather see a movie in the theatre or at home on DVD? Why? In the theater, hands down!  I have a fairly large flat screen at home, but nothing beats the total immersion of that giant screen and surround sound.  I dive into the story and don’t come out until the end.  At home there can be interruptions.

8. Do you love to cook or go out to eat? Out to eat!!  Cooking doesn’t work for me.  I get distracted by the story I’m writing and forget something’s on the stove until it boils over or the smoke alarm goes off.  I’d rather write than cook any old day.  And I’m not a picky eater, so if someone puts food in front of me, I’ll eat it.  I wouldn’t mind having a live-in cook, come to think of it.

THANK YOU SO MUCH for your time.

Thanks for inviting me to do the interview, Rae!  If we ever do get to grab coffee together, I’m buying.  🙂

Ben Radcliffe reckons it’ll be a cold day in hell before he considers a serious relationship or family of his own—with good reason. When he delivers a “secret” present to the Last Chance Ranch, however, Ben catches a glimpse of what family could be. And suddenly this lone cowboy finds himself under the mistletoe…planting one heck of a kiss on a stunning woman!
Genealogist and academic Molly Gallagher is all about family. And even if Ben’s secrets make him as skittish as a wild mustang, there’s nothing Molly loves more than an enigma. Especially a ridiculously sexy one! But the magic of Christmas—and the Last Chance Ranch—might not be enough to wrangle a cowboy who can’t trust himself…

**It’s a Spicy Latte Day** It’s blazing hot at the Last Chance Ranch!

9780373798278

A Last Chance Christmas (The Sons of Chance Series) by Vicki Lewis Thompson is a Harlequin Blaze book and a wonderful post-Thanksgiving treat! When Ben Radcliffe is contracted to make a saddle and deliver it to the Last Chance Ranch for a birthday present, it’s a big secret. Only a few people know the truth about why Ben is at the ranch and are determined to keep it hush-hush. No one is to know that the saddle is a gift for the 70 year old matriarch, Sarah Chance, so “all lips are sealed!”

When Molly Gallagher, Sarah’s niece and family genealogist discover’s Ben he’s playing a rendition of Silent Night on his harmonica.  It sends a jolt to her insides and she immediately melts! Molly had decided to use the party to spend a little extra time at the ranch collecting genealogy information from the family. All work and no play make this an interesting encounter and suddenly a hunky distraction.

When a hot kiss ignites a sizzling connection it leaves Molly and Ben in a liquid pool of lusty goodness. It takes them both by surprise. Molly has never fallen so quickly for a man and a little voice suddenly whispers “what if?” When Ben discloses that he’s not planning to have kids will that derail what could be between them?  Ben is reluctant coming from a troubled and devastating past, but perhaps it’s more out of fear?

Ben was just in it for the moment, or was he? Could he consider something beyond a potential one night fling? Hopefully Molly won’t push Ben away when she discovers just how serious he is about not having children. Never faced with this situation before she doesn’t have much time to process it. Maybe it won’t matter? They both need to be honest with their feelings and true desires. If they’re going to figure this new connection out they definitely don’t want  to involve the rest of the family.

This wonderfully written story is filled with fantastic characters and is blazing hot! Nothing is more special than family and friends at the Last Chance Ranch. When you add a birthday party, the holiday season, and a blizzard, it makes a magical cocktail of sweet heat and cheer!
