Karen Kelley's newest book HELL ON WHEELS takes readers on a charged ride as two bounty hunters embark on a dangerous mission in search of a wanted man. Will they lose their hearts along the way? ***** When Cody Carlyle chases a skip into a dark, damp, rat-infested alley, the last thing she expects is for him to have a friend with him, least-of-all a friend with a gun. When Josh Pierce shows up with an even bigger gun and saves her from serious injury, she is begrudgingly appreciative. This won't be the last time the two are brought together they don't have to spend much time in each other's company before they realize a strong sexual attraction that leaves them both weak. Cody isn't emotionally strong enough for an intense relationship. She is used to looking out for herself as well as supporting her mother, who has her own self-destructive weaknesses. When she and Josh team up to go on the road looking for their latest bad guy, there's more at stake than just the apprehension of the skip their lives and their hearts are on the line.***** Josh has always been impressed with Cody and her ability to take care of herself. He has seen her bruised and bloodied after bringing in a skip and he still thinks that she is the hottest, most beautiful woman he has ever seen. Josh begins a determined seduction of Cody and finds himself more than a little pleased when she agrees to partner with him in the pursuit of an accused murderer. When unexpected danger arises, Josh begins to wonder if they'll live to see another day and he realizes that he just might want more from Cody than a quick fling.***** Karen Kelley gives readers an exciting romance that lacks nothing as it delivers humor, action, suspense, and an abundance of sensuality.Read more ›

Southern author Karen Kelley wows readers with her fabulous story of tough and independent female bounty hunter Cody Carlyle and the bane of her existence - as well as the object of her fantasies - sexy and intriguing fellow bounty hunter Josh Pierce.

Everytime Cody turns around, there's Josh, watching her, wanting her, and it's making her crazy. Josh is just another player, and she's not one to be any man's plaything, no matter how irresistible he is. But the attraction is too strong, and soon the two are sharing more than insults - they are sharing a bed and giving into the intense attraction between them. What was supposed to be a one-time deal turns into something more that neither one of them thinks they can handle, so they both decide to cool things down and stay away from each other.

Until a plum assignment has them joining forces to catch a newsworthy bail jumper. Crossing the border into Mexico, the two are hot on the trail of a felon until the locals decide to get involved, and what happens from there leads to unexpected results that join the two more closely than they ever thought possible, and show them the way to love.

Wow! I was completely drawn into the story from page one, and couldn't put it down until the last page. This book was such a quick read for me, and I hated to see it end. Cody is not your typical heroine, and Karen Kelley doesn't try to change her for her man, which I loved, but instead kept her rough edges intact. Josh was more of a softy than he tried to appear, but he also stayed true to himself, and definitely came through in the end by making a huge compromise to prove his love for his lady. The love scenes were scorching, but emotionally charged right from the start, and the connection between Cody and Josh was so real that I felt like I knew them. They truly belonged together. Kudos to Ms. Kelley for creating such a touching and captivating story. I strongly recommend it and all her other books.

Format: Paperback
Cody Carlyle is a bounty hunter, albeit a sexy, hot looking one, who is self-sufficient, independent and will do anything it takes to bring in her skip. Josh Pierce is an ex-undercover cop turned bounty hunter, who although admires Cody for her skills and attitude cannot keep from thinking how he would like to seduce her. Cody wants no part of this as she doesn't want to be another notch on Josh's belt, although whenever she is around him she has a hard time to keep her mind on the job and not on other things. But she knows that he is not into commitment and certainly not the "L" word, and she secretly wants the whole thing - a family, love, stability - all things she has never had in her life. Finally Cody decides that the best thing is to have a one night stand and get all thoughts of Josh from her head, besides he could never be as hot as she envisions......or could he? Josh and Cody soon discover that once is not enough in fact it does not even take off the edginess when they around each other. Then they team up to bring in a dangerous accused murderer and the dangers of the situation makes Josh realize that he wants more than one night stands - should they live to see an end to the situation they find themselves in - and it scares the daylights out of him more than the danger they are entrapped in. The big question to be answered is how does he get Cody to accept that he means forever. This is a cleverly written hot read, humours in places, with action packed suspense. It makes for a great read and has you wanting to keep turning pages from start to finish. This newest book of Karen's is a sexy, sassy read that has your attention from the very beginning. It also shows how some things and people can change ...... I would highly recommend the book.
