Title: Rope Burn
She wants to turn up the heat. He’s got the skills to whip her into a frenzy.
The Boot Knockers Ranch, Book 5
TV food show host Tabbart Tracy works hard to give viewers her best recipes. But while her fans are legion, her personal life is colder than a meat locker. Most men just want her to serve up some pie—in the nude.
One glance at her assistant’s sexy brother, though, and her body skips straight from low simmer to rolling boil. Especially when she tracks him down at a stud ranch. Where he’s the stud.
When a certain little TV foodie personally requests Stowe’s company for a week, he’s flattered as hell. She needs to give up some control, and as a sex therapist otherwise known as the “Dom from Down Under”, Stowe has the leather, rope, and paddles to do it.
Just as Tabbart melts into a puddle under Stowe’s hands, her worst fear chills her back to reality: someone recognizes her. Worse, her Master frowns on opening her checkbook to make it all go away. But trusting him means hanging onto their connection with both hands—while he takes her for the ride of her life.
Warning: This book contains a TV chef looking for some R&R (as in rough and raunchy) and a whip-wielding Aussie cowboy Dom intent on showing her she can take the heat. As hot as—and anywhere—she wants it.

Rope Burn is book Five in the Boot Knockers Ranch series by Em Petrova and it’s one of my favorites! All the books in this series can be read as a standalone so you don’t need to have them all to start reading this one. This is Stowe’s story, a sex therapist, also know as, The Dom from Down Under! He visits his sister, Alexis, on the set of a cooking show featuring Tabbart Tracy, and when he meets the host-volcanic eruption- its so hot! Neither really know how to handle it and chalk it up to an anomaly. But after a couple of weeks, Tabbart still can’t get him out of her head. She asks about Stowe, and Alexis gives her a website to look at. Tabbart is very excited until she see where he works and what he does, from the website. She figures she’s due a vacation from the set and decides to experience some of what the ranch has to offer-albeit incognito. Noone can know she is there. Her reputation would be shredded if anyone found out. Stowe is elated when he finds out Tabbart has requested him for her week at the ranch. She’s already piqued his interest and his mind starts racing with what he wants to do with her! She’s a control freak that much he knows, so she’ll need to be broke of that first and foremost. He also realizes there’s going to be a lot of work to do in such a short time. It will definitely be a challenge, but one he is more than ready to accept!
Wow! What a ride! I loved both Tabbart and Stowe in this story. I knew it was going to be a hot and steamy read after the first look between them. Em Petrova writes wonderfully by giving us vivid imagery and sizzling sex scenes that leave you panting for more! There’s some voyeurism and BDSM aspects which add to Tabbart’s sexual awakening! Add in the secrecy she desperately needs and we are treated to the extra umpf every story needs! Tabbart is a strong woman. Extremely good at what she does and very successful at it. Where she’s not good is, the man department, and that’s why she feels she could use some lessons from Stowe. What I loved is that while Stowe believes he’s doing everything to help her, he’s tumbling more and more under her spell. He’s not used to these type of feelings and is dumbfounded to be feeling them. What we see looking in, is a man falling in love when he never expected to. It was such a light bulb moment! These two sucked me right in from the beginning and I enjoyed the ride they took me on! I was glued to the book! And although it’s rather fast paced, I was still reading at breakneck speed to see what would happen next!
The Boot Knockers Ranch is every girl’s fantasy! One after one, each cowboy has found his lifelong dream girl. You could be next! Jump aboard the train! I know I’m looking forward to the next in the series and it’s destined to be just as spicy as the rest!
