Meet Holden Donnelly and Mav Ryan, Those Hot and Hunky Cowboys from KARLEIGH’S COWBOYS!

Today I’m interviewing Holden Donnelly and Mav Ryan, the two hot and hunky cowboys from my bestselling menage, KARLEIGH’S COWBOYS, the first book in THE COWBOYS SERIES.

PAIGE: What’s your idea of a romantic date?

HOLDEN: Dinner out at a great restaurant, followed by dancing. I especially like this place called Wranglers because you can do both there. They even have a mechanical bull – riding a bull is a lot like dancing, you know?

PAIGE: No, I didn’t know that.  But Karleigh did mention you talked her into getting on the mechanical bull with you.

HOLDEN (chuckles): She was a nervous at first, but the girl’s a natural.

PAIGE: Only because you’re such a good teacher. At least that’s what Kareigh said.

MAV (snorts): Don’t tell him that. His head’s big enough already.

HOLDEN: Are you talking about my ego, or something else?

PAIGE: Hey, I ask the question here, you two! No bickering. Where was I? Oh yeah, how about you, Mav? What’s your idea of a romantic date?

MAV: A picnic way out in the middle of nowhere. There’s this little place near a stream I like to go to.

PAIGE: The one with the waterfall?

MAV (grins): That’s the one. I’m surprised you know about it.  But I love it – it’s perfect for skinny dipping.

PAIGE: Karleigh mentioned that, too.

MAV ( his grin broadens):  Is that all she told you about?

PAIGE (I glance down at my notepad as I try to get a very naked image of Mav out of my head): So, are you both from Colorado?

HOLDEN: Hell, no. I’m from Texas. And proud of it.

PAIGE: I thought your drawl was different from Mav’s. What about you, Mav?

MAV: Colorado born and bred.

Paige: What do you like best about being a cowboy?

HOLDEN: The open range, the fresh air…

MAV: The cowgirls.

HOLDEN: Definitely the cowgirls.

MAV: Yeah.  You may not know this, but Holden’s got a serious thing for women in cowboy boots.

HOLDEN (winks): And nothing else.

PAIGE (what a flirt, but I couldn’t help laughing as I turned to Mav): What about you? Do you like a woman in cowboy boots?

MAV: Damn straight I do. (flashes a grin) And if she wears her hair up in a ponytail, even better.

PAIGE: I’ll have to remember that next time. Kareigh told me you both like to get a little kinky in the bedroom. Is that true?

HOLDEN (exchanges grins with Mav): We’ve been known to redden a woman’s ass on occasion, though I’m not sure that counts as kinky – it’s just a cowboy thing.

PAIGE (actually, it isn’t, but I didn’t want to tell them that): Really? I didn’t know that. You like tying a girl up, too, right?

MAV: Only if she’s into that kind of thing. (he put on his best smolder) What about you, darlin’? Are you into that kind of thing?

PAIGE: I’m asking the questions here, remember?

MAV (chuckles):  No harm in asking.

PAIGE (I was blushing, dangit!): What’s your favorite part on a woman’s body?

HOLDEN: Her legs, for sure.

PAIGE (which would explain his obsession with a woman wearing cowboy boots and nothing else): Mav?

MAV: Her ass.

PAIGE (I thought I caught him sneaking a peek at mine when I walked in): How did you guys decide who had sex with Karleigh first?

HOLDEN: Rock, paper, scissor. Mav lost.

MAV (lets out a snort): Because you cheated.

PAIGE (How do you cheat at rock, paper, scissor? I figure I’d better hurry on before they started to bicker again): Since you two are cowboys, I have to ask – have you ever had sex on a horse?

HOLDEN: Sorry to say that no, I never have.

MAV: Me, neither.

HOLDEN: Had sex on a mechanical bull once, though.

PAIGE (was it at Wranglers?): Sounds dangerous.

HOLDEN (exchanges looks with Mav): Not if you take it slow.  It adds a whole new connotation to the term bucking.

MAV (chuckles).

PAIGE (I’m blushing again): Now for an easy question. Favorite flavor of ice cream?

HOLDEN: Rocky Road.  I like my dessert with a little edge.

MAV: Would you believe me if I said vanilla?

PAIGE: No. (I laugh) Let’s finish up with a question everyone’s been asking me. Do you think you two’ll hook up with Karleigh again?

HOLDEN (grins): Sure as hell hope so.  But as a matter of fact, Kareigh did say she’s going to be coming out to the ranch in a couple weeks to do a  photo shoot for her magazine. She said something about wanting Mav and me to model.

MAV (chuckles): I’m not so sure about the modeling thing, but if it means I get to spend some time with Karleigh again, I’m up for it.  And I do mean up for it.

PAIGE (these two are so bad!): Kareigh didn’t mention that.  I’ll have to talk to her – I think there might just be another book idea in there!

MAV and HOLDEN (high fiving): Sign us up!

Well, now that you met Holden and Mav, how about a hot excerpt from KARLEIGH’S COWBOYS?!


Two ranch hands are better than one!

Karleigh Blake hasn’t take a vacation in years, so when her friend talks her into coming out to her Colorado ranch for some fun and relaxation, she jumps at the chance. Once there, she meets up with two hot and hunky ranch hands named Holden Donnelly and Mav Ryan who definitely know how to show a girl a good time.

It starts as two separate rolls in the hay, and she’s concerned she isn’t going to be able to hide that she’s sleeping with both of them. She’s surprised when the two cowboys compare notes and decide they don’t mind sharing her – as long as they can do it at the same time!


Beauty must have sensed Karleigh the moment she walked into the barn because the mare whinnied in greeting at her. Lips curving into a smile, Karleigh took a sugar cube from the basket and held it out to the horse. The mare gently took the treat from Karleigh’s outstretched palm, then nuzzled her hand affectionately. Karleigh ran her hand over the mare’s silky chestnut coat with sigh. On the other side of the barn, Loverboy and Highwayman stuck their heads out of their stalls to look longingly at the female horse. Compared to Beauty’s love life, hers didn’t seem nearly as complicated, Karleigh thought. If she was careful and did some strategic planning, she could keep seeing both Holden and Mav without either of them finding out. How hard could it be?

The sound of the door opening interrupted her before she could answer that question. Startled, she turned to see Holden and Mav walking into the barn. Her stomach did a crazy little backflip at the sight of them. It should be illegal to be in a room with two guys this gorgeous.

Mav gave her a grin. “Where were you hiding all day?”

Had it been that obvious? Karleigh ran her hands down the front of her short, silk robe. She wished she’d worn something a little less revealing, but she hadn’t expected anyone to be on the ranch. Not that it would have mattered. Both men were undressing her with their eyes anyway. Heat pooled between her thighs, and she stifled a moan.

“I went shopping with Heather in Colorado Springs,” she said.

Holden hooked his thumbs in his belt, his fingers resting lightly on the big buckle. Karleigh heard somewhere that when a man did that, it meant he was thinking about sex.

“Mav said you two went for a ride and a picnic yesterday.”

Oh crap. She reached up to nervously tuck her long, blonde hair behind her ear. “Um, yeah.”

“You know,” Holden continued. “You should have told me you liked anal sex. We could have tried it out the other night.”
Double crap.

Karleigh stared at Mav in shock, unable to believe he’d told Holden they’d slept together. But why wouldn’t he? Mav had no idea she’d wanted to keep it a secret.

She tensed, bracing herself for the anger she was sure was headed her way, but to her surprise—and relief—neither man looked angry. In fact, they were grinning.

She looked from one to the other. “You’re not mad?

“Why would we be mad?” Holden asked.

She thought it would have been obvious. “Because I slept with both of you.”

“Oh. That.” Mav chuckled. “You’re a whole lot of filly. We don’t mind sharing you.”

She blinked. “You don’t?”

His dark eyes took on that smolder she was coming to recognize. “As long as we do it at the same time. Or more precisely, do you at the same time.” He slanted Holden a glance. “Isn’t that right?”

Holden’s grin broadened. “That’s right.”

Her eyes went wide. “You mean, like a threesome?”

Mav nodded. “Unless you’re not comfortable with that.”

Karleigh chewed on her lower lip thoughtfully. She’d never had a threesome, but the chance to have sex with two incredibly hot guys was too good to pass up.

She looked at them from beneath lowered lashes, her heart beating a little faster. “I didn’t say that.”

“So, what are you saying?” Holden asked.

“Just that I’ve never actually had sex with two men before,” she said. “But I’m all about trying new things. Especially when they sound like they’re going to be so much fun.”

Mav’s dark eyes flared. “Is that a yes?”

She gave them a sultry smile. “It’s most definitely a yes.”

He grinned. “We were hoping you’d say that.”

Karleigh wasn’t sure what the rules were when it came to having a threesome—or even if there were any. Fortunately, Holden and Mav seemed to know exactly what to do because they immediately walked over to her. She waited expectantly to see which of them would take the lead when Holden pulled her into his arms and kissed her. She looped her arms around his neck, her lips parting as his tongue took possession of hers. His erection bulged in his jeans and rubbed against her tummy, telling her how turned on he already was.

His hands went to the belt on her robe, giving it a tug. As it fell open, Mav stepped up behind her, slipping off the garment and leaving her naked. Being sandwiched between two rock-hard male bodies made her pussy purr, and she moaned against Holden’s mouth. He slid his hands in her hair, gently tilting her head back while Mav pressed his mouth to the curve of her neck. Two sets of hands roamed over her body, caressing her everywhere. She tried to focus on who was touching where, but she lost track. After a while, it felt like she had a dozen hands touching her body, not just four. And it felt damn good.

When hands finally buried themselves in her hair again, she decided that must be Holden. Which meant Mav was cupping her breasts. As he rolled her hard nipples between his fingers, his cock pressed against her ass, straining at the material of his jeans. The reminder of how delicious he’d felt inside her asshole made her moan, and she rotated her hips in invitation, silently letting him know she wouldn’t mind him doing it again.

Holden made enough room so Mav could slide his hand down her stomach to find her clit in the downy curls between her thighs. While he began making circles around the sensitive nub, Holden took over massaging her breasts. He rubbed the pad of his thumb over her nipples before giving each of them a firm squeeze. Being touched in both places at once made the sensations that much more intense, and she let out an audible sigh as Holden pulled his mouth away to trail kisses down her neck.

Behind her, Mav brushed her ear with his lips. “Does this feel good?”

His breath was warm and moist against her skin, and she shivered. “Mm-hmm.”

“Would you like us to make you come like this?” Holden asked.

The way they were touching her was making it difficult to think, much less speak. “Us?”

Taking one hand from her breast, he slowly glided it down her stomach to join Mav’s between her legs. Ah, so that was what he’d meant.
