"Raising Kane" By: Lorelei James Review

"Raising Kane" 
By: Lorelei James
Synopsis from Barnes & Noble:
When a patch of ice sends attorney Ginger Paulson head-over-high-heels down a flight of stairs, she has no one to care for her young son and her invalid father—until lethally sexy Kane McKay shows up at the hospital, determined to prove his cowboy chivalry. Past experience has inoculated her against take-charge men, but even Ginger isn’t immune to Kane’s invasive charm and Built Ford Tough body.

For two years rancher Kane McKay has followed the Little Buddies mentoring program’s cardinal rule—hands off his Little Buddy Hayden’s mama. But one look at Ginger’s bruised body and Kane is through watching the stubborn woman take care of everyone but herself. The feisty, curvy redhead needs his help, and he’ll give her the hands-on type whether she likes it or not.

After Kane throws out doctor’s orders and issues his own demands—her full sexual submission—Ginger realizes Kane’s caring nature extends beyond just fulfilling her physical needs.

Can the former hell-raiser convince the gun-shy single mom to look beyond his past…toward a shared future?

My Thoughts:   
     I really liked this book! I feel that Lorelei has really hit her stride with this series and I am loving each new book that comes out. Raising Kane is book 9 in the Rough Riders series telling the story of bad boy twin Kane and lawyer, Ginger.
     Kane has been a central character in several of the past books so you feel like you really know him. He has went from a crazy 20-something boy to a fairly reclusive reformed cowboy throughout the series. As a reader I have enjoyed the transformation, because I hated him near the beginning of the series.
      Fast forward several books and now Kane has his own story. He falls in love with Ginger, a lawyer in town who's son is Kane's "little brother." It was fun to watch this relationship change and grow as well as see Kane interact with this ready made family.
      As with all of Lorelei's books, there is tons of naughtiness so be prepared. However, it is a wonderful story about redemption, family, and friends in times of crisis. A wonderful, easy to read story for a cold wintry night. A great addition to the Rough Riders series.
