After her own engagement goes to hell, workaholic Jessica Talbot dreads her friend’s bachelorette party at a dude ranch in Nowheresville, Texas. But the outlook for the weekend brightens when Deacon Dumen picks her up at the airport. The sexy cowboy awakens every dormant sexual fantasy with nothing more than a friendly smile and a handshake.
Ex-Air Force Pararescueman Deke Dumen doesn’t know what to make of the sexy yet reserved brunette who breaks through the walls he built after an injury ended his career and a divorce soured him on relationships. As a guest at his family’s ranch Jessie is off limits, but the Dom in him rebels at the restriction, even as he realizes his penchant for control in the bedroom would likely scare the holy hell out of her.
When Jessie shocks Deke by asking for exactly what he’s been craving, he’s ready to break the rules and introduce her to his own brand of dominance. Her willing surrender rocks them both to the core. But once the weekend’s over, they must decide if it was just a wild fling or the start of something more.
WOW, is the first word that comes to my mind when I think of Deacon’s Touch by Callie Croix. Ms. Croix reigns supreme from the top of her head to the tips of her toes. She has created a well-written, sexy book about dominance and submission that makes a gal go,”Oh…”
Deacon is sweet and hard all rolled into one delicious package. After returning home to help out on the family ranch, the last thing this Alpha cowboy was expecting to find is a diamond in the ruff. Now all he has to do is figure out what to do with her?
Jessica has a star quality all on her own. Her character’s inner beauty just blew me away. Marvelous job, Ms. Croix. Jessica is heading to a Dude-Ranch for her best friend’s bachelorette party when she’s shocked when a deep feelings that come to life for the hunky cowboy who’s sent to retrieve her from the airport. The question is when the time comes, will they both admit what they feel for one another?
The secondary characters were both interesting and fun! In addition, the story of the plot was both passionate and humorous. Ms. Croix does a wonderful job of providing a descriptive western backdrop that draws the reader into the story. It was very enjoyable. In essence, the Dume Brother’s sure pack a punch, so sign me up.
I have to ask though, there was a moment in this story where I felt something more than a romance was going on. It had to do with the BMW car, care to clarify if I am reading too much into this?
Seductive yet sweet, Callie Croix delivers a charming start to this new series. Deacon’s Touch is worth re-reading over and over because that’s one cowboy who knows how to win a lady’s heart.
