The Texan's Wager (The Wife Lottery) by Jodi Thomas - It's a western contemporary but I loved it! Carter is again a very, very quiet and TOTAL loner hero who's never known love (I think he speaks his first word to his wife 4-5 days AFTER he's married her lol!). He's awesome and so gentle!

ETA: I meant historical, not contemporary! Damn.

I would love to read Beast, but not sure I want to spend the money. Is it really good and hot or just soso?

I read The Wife Lottery series about 5 years ago and loved them all but The Texan's Wager was the one that I still will pick up and re-read. I just adore Carter! I really don't read very many westerns but pick this one up at a 2nd hand book store as part of a package deal and was hooked, couldn't put it down, and as soon as I finished it I went back to the book store and was able to purchase the rest in the series. H absolutely fits this thread!

Blitzkrieg, I just ordered Jodi Thomas' Texan's Wager but I haven't started it yet. Did you mean to say its a western historical? I don't typically read historical books but this series was highly recommended and got great reviews so I thought I'd given a try. Seems like a great concept for a book series.

ETA: I highly recommend Beast. I liked how they became friends over time and then progressed into being lovers. I've re-read it a few times since I got it a few weeks ago.

I read Beast a few weeks ago too after seeing it on another thread. Strangely I didn't really love the writing style but still thought it was a really good read. The story is sweet and I agree with LovesToRead, it was nice how they built up to being lovers, although you don't have to wait until the end to get some between the sheets action. As for hot, there are plenty of scenes, but personally I didn't find them that hot. It all sounds really negative, but it's a great story, I certainly didn't think it was a waste of money.

Blue-Phoenix, I would but I'm in Australia & I don't think we can do the whole lending thing. If I was wrong about that, trust me, I would not be sad!

Blue-Phoenix, I'm happy to loan you Beast. I'm not sure how to do it though, so let me do some research and I'll email it to you!

Read Defying the Odds (Battered Hearts) and Experimenting with Ed (Human Design, Book One). Both of the Hs were instantly besotted with the h. Both Hs were shy, big hulky guys that didn't speak much, but both hs had no problem seeing that they were in love with them. No angst between the couples and was a nice HEA for all.

Could someone spoil Unwritten Rules? The description makes it sound likes he's a serial killer or something.


(edited to fix book title)

Unwritten Rules ***SPOILERS***
IIRC he is all broken up because he hit his brother with a car years before. He ends up running away from home and doesn't have contact with his family. Elle and Jonah end up going to visit his family where the brother is still alive but in a wheelchair. The brother is ok with Jonah, but Jonah can't forgive himself.

It's been quite awhile since I read this, so I hope I got this right. Enjoy!

Another rec that may fit this thread - The Story of Son by JR Ward, which can be found in the anthology Dead After Dark: WITH "Shadow of the Moon" AND "The Story of Son" A. It's a novella, part of an anthology but it's a really sweet story (some element of PNR). H, who has been literally locked-up by his evil mother for ages, is shy, virgin, intense :)

I just read The Texan's Wager and Carter is just the sweetest. H. ever. Loved him! I kinda hated Bailee though. Ok, (ducking and covering my head) I REALLY hated Bailee - she was supposed to be some sort of ministering caretaking angel but to me she just seemed like a bossy whiny hypocritical witch COMPLETELY undeserving of the beauty that was Carter. I was actually hoping at one point that Bailee would get shot or run over by the oxen or something so that Carter could be with someone more appreciative. But anyway, here's my question for anyone who's read the rest of them: is it worth it to go on with the rest of the series? Are the rest of the heroines like Bailee?
