Lorelei James' New Release Kicks Off New Series

Today we're celebrating the release of Lorelei James' CORRALLED which kicks off her new Blacktop Cowboys Series.

When she's not squirreled away behind her laptop writing fun, sexy, contemporary erotic romances set in the modern day Wild West, Lorelei can be found reading everything under the sun, practicing yoga until she's a pretzel, shootin' her .22, watching the Professional Bull Riders tour on Versus, and running a kid's taxi service, all in the guise of avoiding housework and rustlin' up vittles.

Why does she have a particular fondness for all things western? Well, she's a fourth generation South Dakotan, living in the Black Hills, which is chock-full of interesting characters, including cowboys, Indians, ranchers, and bikers. The geographical diversity of the surrounding area showcases mountains, plains, and badlands. Living in and writing about rural settings gives her a unique perspective, especially since she's not writing historical westerns. Through her fictional world, she can show the ideals and the cowboy way of life are still very much alive.

She also write a dark, gritty mystery series under the name Lori Armstrong and her novel Snow Blind just won the 2009 Shamus Award from the Private Eye Writers of America for Best Paperback Original! Check it out at

Visit Lorelei James Website for her complete list of books

First in a new series about some hard-riding rodeo cowboys...and the women who can rein them in.

CORRALLED - Book one in Lorelei James' new Blacktop Cowboys Series

Sports therapist Lainie Capshaw has been rehabilitating injured cowboys long enough to know that a charming western drawl combined with a fine physical form doesn't mean you fall for the man.

So no one is more surprised than Lainie when she finds herself involved with not one, but two different men: Hank Lawson, a bullfighter, and Kyle Gilchrist, a bull rider. Lainie feels guilty about her two-timing, but it doesn't keep her from doubling her fun-that is until Hank catches her with Kyle.

She's shocked that Hank isn't mad. But she's more shocked to learn Hank and Kyle are hometown buddies. But when the men offer to share her-in every way-she knows that she's going to have to choose the one man who can give her the ride of her life.

  20. I am blog hopping hoping that my lucky name will be drawn!

    My question is why did you choose Sundance Wyoming? Is this the same town where the festival is held and if so, you never mention the festival.

    Thanks MichellekCananda

  26. Congrats on your new release. Can't wait to read it.


  27. I would love to read Corralled. I enjoy your books under either name, but I think the cowboys and cowgirls are my favorite characters. Thanks.

  28. Ms. James I just finished "All Jacked Up" ( hoard your books until I know you have a new one to go to next) ant I can see how with every book you become a better writer. Each of your characters become deeper and richer each book until you can almost reach out and touch them. HBO should make a series out of The Rough Riders. With Corralled my addiction restarts!


  29. So excited about this new series, Lorelei! Congrats!
