Silver-Tongued Devil by Lorelei James

“Silas and Dinah are dynamite!”
— Lexi Blake, New York Times bestselling author

SILVER-TONGUED DEVIL, an all-new sexy, historical standalone romance with all-the-feels from the fan-favorite Rough Riders Series by New York Times bestselling author Lorelei James, is out now!

17.-Silver-Tongued-Devil--digital (1)

Their love story sparked a brushfire that grew into the legacy of Lorelei James’s Rough Riders series. This standalone historical romance is a prequel to the McKay family saga.

The West doesn’t get much wilder than Silas McKay. He’s earned his cowboy reputation not just as a rancher, but as a brawling card sharp who’s short on cash but long on charm. And just as soon as he claps eyes on the pretty new schoolteacher? Well, Dinah Thompson is about to discover what courtin’s like McKay-style—sweet, hot and passionate.

Luckily, Dinah’s got the sass and sense to stand up to Silas’s shenanigans. She relocated to rural Wyoming to teach and become a self-reliant woman, not to spend her nights dreaming about that blue-eyed rogue and his ranchwork honed-body. But Silas McKay’s powerful appeal and tempting promises convince Dinah to recklessly go all in with him.

When Silas’s long-standing rivalry with Zeke West puts Dinah, Silas and his twin brother Jonas in danger, each one is forced to make difficult decisions about taking a chance to build their legacy . . . and a love that transcends time.

Silver-Tongued Devil by Lorelei James
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It’s been a hot minute since I thought about the Rough Riders and now that I’ve finished reading this book all I want to do is binge all of them!

#FunFact: I never really thought about the beginning or the origin of the bad blood between the McKays and the Wests until this book was announced. I mean there have been mentions in previous books but not an in-depth story like we have with Silver-Tongued Devil and now I am super glad the author decided to bring this story to us because we only thought we knew what was what (that is if you’ve read Cowboy Take Me Away….).

One of the first things I thought of when I finished this book was … ”man, this chic is brilliant!” Lorelei James can write anything and it will be a well thought out plot with great character growth. I’ve been a fan of this author for a lot of years and I have read all kinds of stories written by her but this is her first historical and she nailed it! Silas was delicious and Dinah is my hero! There are twists and turns all up in this story as well. You guys, seriously, this is a series everyone should be reading.
