~Boots Optional~
Grace Lambert is familiar with hard work, long days, and handsome cowboys. She’s been working for her family’s dude ranch since she was old enough to ride a horse and she’s not afraid to get her hands dirty. What she is afraid of is the heat that’s been generating between her and not one, but two sexy cowboys who’ve set their sights on her. And each other. 

Grant Kingsley and Lane Miller have both had their eyes on Gracie for years, but the feisty cowgirl has managed to keep them at bay. As far as they are concerned, cowboys don’t give up, and neither of them is ready to give up just yet. Not on her and not on the heat that transpires between the two of them. 

Find out what happens when the sultry Texas nights get as hot as the fierce Texas days.

~Betting on Grace~
The tables have turned on Grace Lambert. For a woman familiar with long days and hard work, she just recently discovered just how hot the sultry Texas nights can get. Finding time to spend with her two smoking hot cowboys, Grant and Lane, isn’t exactly easy, but she’s forging ahead with what has turned out to be the hottest relationship she has ever been in. The true test comes in standing up for what she wants. 

Grant Kingsley has landed his feisty cowgirl, Gracie, and an equally sexy cowboy, Lane Miller, but everything outside of his romantic life has gone from routine to chaos in a matter of days. Unfortunately, he’s become rather acquainted with Murphy’s Law as he is inundated with a string of bad luck. His mother is missing, his father, a gambling addict, is worried about only one thing these days, and when Grant refuses to give in, all hell breaks loose on the ranch. 

Lane Miller will be the first to admit that he falls in love easily. And he’s done so again, with both Gracie and Grant. Only this time around, he’s not giving up or giving in. Cowboys don’t know what it means to back down and Lane will ensure that the two most important people in his life get all of him, no matter what it takes. 

Don't forget to read Boots Optional, the prequel to Betting on Grace, before you dive in!

In true Nicole Edwards style she has managed to put together a menage that will knock your boots off.  My only complaint was that it ended way to soon, but I guess that is the point of it being a novella.

I have to say that one of my favorite parts of this story had to have been the "list" that Grant gave Grace.  That was priceless,even more so by the fact that she did not read what was on it and in turn gave it to her sister to go pick up.

When it comes to Boots Optional I can honestly say that it will wet your want for more of this new and hot threesome as well as causing you to heat up with want for the sequel soon to come out.  Nicole done a great job in writing the "case" that Grant and Lane went on in pursuit of Grace, and of course her feisty remarks.  Then when you think you can't take anymore Nicole grabs us with the emotional bonding of the couple making you fall in love with them just as fast as you have each of her other couples.  

I am looking forward to seeing where life leads Grant, Lane, and Grace as well as what happens with Grace's sisters Faith and Mercy who kindly assisted in the happenings of Boots Optional.  

BOBB had the pleasure of sitting down with Grace, Lane and Grant recently ... see how our Interview went.
**Note: Interview contains spoilers from Boots Optional**

1. Grant - You didn’t have any idea that Lane was interested in you at any time before the incident in the kitchen of your house?

Lane: Oh, I’m pretty sure he had an idea. I think he might’ve been somewhat in denial –

Grant: Hold up a minute. Me? Denial? *laughs* No way.

Lane: Believe what you wanna believe. * looks back at Jennifer and winks* I still think he knew. No, I take that back. I know he knew. He’ll be the first to tell you that I’m just that obvious. *smirks*

2. Lane - What made you decide to move forward and act on your feelings towards Grant? Did you actually plan that you were going to approach him that night?
Lane: I’m not sure I ever plan anything.

*Grant mouths “he doesn’t”*

Lane: Whatever, man. Seriously, I think my focus was mainly on Gracie. She’s been the one who really captured my attention for the last coupla years. Grant’s just… an added bonus. *another crooked grin*

3. Grant and Lane - What were your first thoughts when Grace stood at the door that first night watching you together?
Grant: In my defense, I had no idea she was there until she told us.

Lane: It was hot. I’m not gonna lie. And you can ask her, I’m pretty sure she liked it, too.

4. Grace - When you saw Lane and Grant in the kitchen kissing what were the thoughts running through your head? Did you want to join in or were you just happy to watch?
Grace: *grins shyly* It took me by surprise, quite frankly. Sure, it was hot, there’s no doubt about that. But I think I was frozen in place. At the time, I wasn’t thinking about joining or running. I was just dumbfounded.

5. Lane and Grant - When Mercy walked up to both of you at the pool table and told you “Play your cards right”, then Gracie came over what were your thoughts before everything got shot to hell?
Lane: Story of my life. I was a little surprised that Mercy interfered.

Grace: What? My sister interferes whenever she can, Lane. What do you mean you were surprised.

Lane: *laughs as he leans over and kisses Grace on the head* Okay, maybe surprised isn’t the right word. But I do remember thinking it was odd because this is unconventional to say the least. For Mercy to practically throw Grace our way… yeah, I still can’t believe we got that lucky.

Grace: *shakes head* He doesn’t know how lucky he is. *laughs*

Lane: Oh, gorgeous, trust me, I know.

6. Grant - Did it bother you that Mercy seemed to know what was going on with the three of you?
Grant: I’ve been chasin’ Gracie for two years. I’ve wanted her for longer than that. Like Gracie said, Mercy likes to interfere. I think in this case, I was happy she did. Lane and I had already proven we weren’t gettin’ anywhere with Gracie at the time.

7. This last question is for Gracie, it seems like you are fairly tight with at least two of your sisters, have Mercy and Faith found out about your relationship with Lane and Grant, and if so what have they had to say about it?
Grace: At this point, only Mercy knows. *glances over at Lane and Grant* At least I think she’s the only one who knows. Faith doesn’t interfere, bless her heart. Too bad Merce can’t be more like her. I think we’re doin’ a good job of keepin’ off of everyone’s radar. At least I hope we are.
