She’s protecting his body and guarding her heart….

Country music star Devin McClain understands there’s a downside to life in the public eye, but the laidback Wyoming cowboy has never imagined he’d attract crazed fans who would do anything to garner his attention. When veiled threats become real, he agrees to hire a discreet security detail. But Devin is shocked when that bodyguard is a hard-bodied woman. He’s even more stunned to be attracted to the steely-eyed stunner.

Former soldier Liberty Masterson’s return to civilian life has been fraught with challenges until she lands a job with a prestigious security firm. But when she agrees to provide personal protection during a cross-country tour, she doesn’t realize she has signed up to masquerade as the playboy star’s girlfriend. Though she’s more comfortable in combat boots than high heels, she has no choice but to appear to be the sexy groupie Devin prefers.

Living in close quarters causes the chemistry between them to ignite, and Devin realizes he wants to turn their charade of a romance into reality. Although Liberty surrenders to his every whim behind closed doors, she fears the sexy country star doesn’t see the real her; and Devin can’t help but worry when the tour ends that there might not be enough between them to build something that won’t fade away….

Hillbilly Rockstar is absolutely amazing! This might be my favorite in Lorelei James’s Blacktop Cowboys series! Hot, exciting and sexy! Devin is a hot country music star. A star that seems to have some random threats aimed at him. When his record label insists on a bodyguard there was no way he could have predicted a lady would be assigned and his ego had a hard time accepting it. Instant attraction and sizzling chemistry makes it hard to fight the attraction and once Liberty finally gives in to Devin they could not keep their clothes on and their hands off of each other. Liberty knew there was no way their relationship would ever be more than the time they had together on the tour, but she was going to enjoy every second. Nothing had ever felt as right and as real, but will their careers tear them apart? I highly recommend this new addition to Lorelei James’s Blacktop Cowboys series. Each book can be read as a standalone, but I recommend starting at the beginning. They’re all great!

Why do I have a particular fondness for all things western? Well, I’m a fourth generation South Dakotan, living in the Black Hills, which is chock-full of interesting characters, including cowboys, Indians, ranchers, and bikers. The geographical diversity of the surrounding area showcases mountains, plains, and badlands. Living in and writing about rural settings gives me a unique perspective, especially since I’m not writing historical westerns. Through my fictional world, I can show the ideals and the cowboy way of life are still very much alive.
