Welcome to Lusty, Texas, a town that’s earned its name and is proud of it!
In the aftermath of personal tragedy, Kelsey Madison found a new beginning in Lusty, Texas. Uninterested in affairs of the heart, she doesn’t realize two of Lusty’s most eligible bachelors have turned their sights on her. Once she does, she decides there’s nothing wrong with having a little fun, as long as it’s only physical.
Matthew and Steven Benedict knew Kelsey was the one for them the moment they saw her. They set out to woo her with flowers, chocolates and wild sex designed to addict her to them.
Then an unexpected guest cracks the ice encasing Kelsey’s heart, making her face the ghosts from her past, finally putting them to rest. But her future with the brothers Benedict is threatened when an unknown enemy targets Kelsey. Can they stop him before it’s too late?
Welcome to Lusty, Texas where unconventional IS the norm.
If, like me, you fell in love with Sarah, Caleb and Joshua Benedict in Love Under Two Gunslingers as well as Amanda, Adam and Warren Jessop-Kendall in Love Under Two Lawmen this is your lucky day! Get ready to jump forward a couple of generations to see their dream fulfilled in the town of Lusty, TX.
In Love Under Two Benedicts you’ll meet the great-great grandson’s of the patriarch Benedicts, brothers Steven and Matthew. These two drool-worthy hotties have set their sights on one Kelsey Madison. Will she have the courage to let go of past tragedy and trust her heart to these two very persuasive and determined cowboys? It’ll take a little patience and a whole lot of addictive lovin’ but nobody takes to a challenge quite like a Texan and these guys have a long standing history of how three (and sometimes four) is anything but a crowd. They just have to convince Kelsey that she was meant to be a part of the Benedict Way.
Ms. Covington has done something I think most authors just dream of doing. She has created a place where the stories could literally be endless. In the prequel books to the Lusty, TX series she set the stage for countless stories if she chooses to write them. This reviewer for one hopes that she has plans to keep the series alive for a very long time. But, just coming up with a great theme for a series isn’t enough. The characters have to be “real”, original, and multi-dimensional. The plot has to be well developed and character motivation understood. The dialogue has to be engaging and flow smoothly. I’ve read many a book where the premise was good and it had potential but it lost me on all the other elements. That hasn’t happened in any of the books I’ve read by Ms. Covington. She doesn’t just write…she creates.
I spotted so many great secondary characters that just seem to be begging to have their on HEA told I can’t wait to see who lands in Lusty, TX next!
