Shannon Connelly works hard at the Royal Princess Saloon, but when her boss threatens her security, she knows she's in trouble. That's when two clean-cut cowboys saunter through the batwing doors and offer to change her life.
Eli and Josh Payne need a tough woman with conviction. They find this in Shannon, a pistol of a beauty with fiery red hair. Shannon decides to embrace everything their Wyoming ranch has to offer, not expecting to find Paradise in the arms of the two sexy cowboys.
Shannon Connelly is one of the most spitfire and brash characters that I’ve had the pleasure of reading. I loved her immediately and so did Josh and Eli Payne. The brothers had been on the look out for a woman who could not only handle living on a working cattle ranch but that could handle two cowboys as well. Shannon turns out to be more than they hoped for with her flashing green eyes and fiery red hair. Ms. Carlton does a superb job with Shannon’s dialect. The Irish brogue is spot on.
Shannon is naturally attracted to both Josh and Eli, which is fine by them. I really liked the camaraderie that Ms. Carlton created in the brothers. It “feels” very genuine. They pick on each other and push each other’s buttons but you can tell they truly care for one another.
The journey back to their Cheyenne spread is a bit predictable but no less fun and erotic when Shannon gets the chance to show her appreciation to first Eli and then Josh for their generosity. Shannon’s charm and self confidence are exactly what Eli needs, in particular, to defeat some personal inner demons brought on by a selfish ex-wife.
I give Three In Paradise three and half cherries for a well written novella that flows well and leaves the reader content that Shannon, Josh and Eli will have their HEA.
