Book Description:

Having spent a celibate year waiting for her divorce, waking up in the arms of a gorgeous hunk after a night of hot sex was at the top of Jaz's list. Either of these dreamboats would be wonderful, but which one? When she has trouble deciding, Jaz makes the decision that if either of them would be good, then both of them would be twice as good!

With that thought burning into her psyche, Jaz returns determined to seduce not one, but both of the ready and willing studs. What follows is a sexy, sometimes humorous story where the things that happen that night entwine all their lives, changing them forever.

Book Review:

Jasmine is finally free. She is free to start over and do what ever she wants now that a huge weight is lift off of her. Now all Jaz wants to do is get drunk and have the night of her life. Too bad her friend Brenda has other plans for her. Or maybe it could be the best time of her life.
Especially after meeting two of thesexiest men alive.

What’s a girl to do when she’s faced with a hard choice. Is it really a hard one?
Ted and Gabe thought it would be just another night of bowling. But they sure are bowled over when they meet one sexy lady named Jaz. They both like Jasmine are having a very hard time keeping their hands and mouths off of her. Things get even hotter between the trio. And what a way to end the night.
Jasmine is straight forwarded woman. Yet she’s never met such sweet and sexy men like Ted and Gabe. It’s such a hard decision for Jaz to pick one man so she decides to not see them anymore instead breaking anyone’s heart.
Jaz decides to focus on her new job. Too bad she didn’t count on her men to fight sneaky to win Jasmine over.

Ted and Gabe have a tough road ahead of them. One of them is going to get their heartbroken yet they’ll realize that Jasmine is worth the risk.

Laura Ashton is new and upcoming bestselling author. Ms. Ashton will win over many readers with her upcoming new series, Sensual Awakenings. With the first title in that series, Jasmine’s Urban Cowboys if off to an amazing start. You can be sure that its just going to be even more sexy in the upcoming titles in the Sensual Awakenings series.
I have to say that Jasmine’s Urban Cowboys is one hell of sexy ménage ride involving Ted, Jaz and Gabe. Ms. Ashton lead characters have lots of sexy fun in the beginning then slowly manages to seduce not only the heroine, Jaz but readers too will fall in love with this novel as well.

Usually there’s drama before the fun and sexy scenes come to life but Ms. Ashton comes up with a new way to drawn in the readers. Sure, we all like to read sexy love scenes yet there’s a hell of lot more drama behind the scenes as well that keep everyone entertained.

One of those dramas are Jaz’s best friend, Brenda who’s life right now isn’t going the way she’s hoped for. I for one hope that Ms. Ashton is going to give Brenda a chance to shine in her book soon?
Another memorable character is Ted’s mother, Camilla. She is one of kind sweetheart who very open to new things and isn’t easily offended by people’s choices and lifestyles. Seeing her son and nephew fight for what they want makes Camilla want the same and go out to get what she's hoping to find her own happy ending.

Back to the main characters, I am amazed and definitely charmed by these three main characters. Ted and Gabe are so sweet and sexy and were definitely brought up to respect a woman. These men sure didn’t give up on Jasmine and kept on slowly seducing her over to their bed… Oops. I mean their side.
All that is left to say about Jasmine’s Urban Cowboys is that you won’t forget anytime soon. They only other thing I can say about this book is that this is one sexy true love story that is just the beginning of great series called Sensual Awakenings.
My vote…

Say yes to Ms. Ashton’s Jasmine’s Urban Cowboys.

I am happy to give Jasmine’s Urban Cowboys a rating of 4 ½ Stars.

Book Description:

Peace among the clans has been nonexistent for the past centuries. But now that clan Lairds have decided to summon the God-touched people from their magical Isle to perform the rituals of Beltane to bless the peace talks between the clans, peace is within reach.

Melanie is honored to be chosen as one of six maidens to represent the Goddess at this important event. She is meant to be a vessel for the power of the Goddess while forgetting the failures of humanity during the festival. She knows should be concentrating on her part as a Maiden of the Hunt, yet she cannot banish the handsome Scot from her mind. Running in the Hunt is as sacred as the Goddess herself, and should her desires be known, there could be dire consequences for her and the clansman. However, she can’t find the will to deny his pull.

The mists of the Black Mountains enhance the excitement of their forbidden love while providing an escape from the Islanders encampment. Can they give in to their desires at the expense of their destinies?

Especially once The Sorcerer discovers their dalliance…
Book Review:

Melanie is a priestess in training who has been chosen to be a maiden for her Goddess. But she has no idea the real intentions of the Sorcerer has in store for her. When she and the other chosen one arrive at Black Mountain, Melanie finds herself in the beginnings of falling for Adam. But like all good love stories there must be forces determined to keep the heroine and hero apart.

Like Melanie, Adam too has no clue what was in store for him when the chosen maidens came to him and his clan. The clan men escorted the chosen ones to their territory. On the way over, Adam and Melanie slowly but sure get to know each other and they soon begin a bond. A bond that is determined to keep these two together.

Melanie is soon conflicted . . . Does she follow her heart or her head? She was born to be one of the chosen ones of her Goddess. But once meeting Adam, she can’t help but fall under his spell.
Adam is trying to keep a level head, but there’s just something about Melanie that brings out the animal in him. The animal that wants to claim his mate. The animal that will kill any man who dares to come between him and his mate, Melanie.
The Sorcerer isn’t about to let some insignificant man take what his. Melanie was and is the one he plans to have claimed by Adam’s rival clan.
But what the Sorcerer didn’t count on was that his maiden wasn’t going to let herself be offered by no one else but Adam.

Both Adam and Melanie suffers for their actions. Each are punished severely by their mentors/elders.

The Sorcerer drags the maidens back home. But Adam isn’t about to let his mate go.

Okay, this was short novel about two people who lives changed the instance they first met.
Melanie and Adam are two of a kind. Both fiercely protective of one another and despite the odds manage to find true happiness together.

Heather Long brings readers a new fantasy and sci-fi book, Remembering Ashby. It introduces readers of a different time where love and magic are truly alive. Where even though there is danger, that love and magic are more powerful combination.
What else can I say besides how much this great book, Remembering Ashby encourages me to discover more sci-fi and fantasies.

While there is terrible situations that happen, the good will prevail in the end.

And isn’t that what makes an awesome ending?

I give Remembering Ashby 4 Stars!
