    I have my mother to thank for my passion for writing My mom is an avid reader of popular fiction, and I began reading highly inappropriate books around the age of eleven, I think Thanks, Mom, for always leaving those delicious books strewn about To Tempt a Scotsman, a Golden Heart winning historical, was my first published book Here I am signing the cover A Rake s Guide to Pleasure which was excerpted at the back of Scotsman is my second.Due to my all around goofiness, my agent suggested I also try my hand at a contemporary romantic comedy Boy, is my agent smart I had a great time writing Talk Me Down, the story of a young woman who goes back to her small hometown in Colorado and causes a huge stir with her secretive career and her burgeoning relationship with the chief of police Not only did I have a great time writing it, but Tara Parsons at HQN liked it too So if you like cold weather, hot sex and dirty jokes, be sure to check out Talk Me Down out in January 2009.Speaking of cold weather, my family and I live in a beautiful ski town in Utah No, I don t ski I prefer to sit inside with a hot toddy and a good book while the snow falls It s especially beautiful to watch when from the inside I have a wonderful husband and children, and the house is kind of crowded, what with the dukes, Scotsmen, police chiefs, and naughty ladies running around, but my family is very understanding about my imaginary friends Good thing, since they refuse to leave

    Quick review for a quick read. I read this in a matter of hours, but all I really got out of this story was a "meh" read, unfortunately. Walker and Charlie definitely had chemistry and some fun flirtations in the mix (though there were some sensual scenes that made me cringe because they were awkward), but on the whole, I wasn't really taken into this story very much even with the quirky personalities and side-characters this narrative had to offer. Walker and Charlie respectively come from real [...]

    I had a hard time warming up to the couple in this one. Each one seemed to put on a front. I know a lot of characters are written that way, but I was turned off by these 2. It seemed that each person was trying to hide things, things that they thought if hidden would let them be someone else. I wish that they would have just accepted those aspects of their lives and acknowledged the effect it had on them. I also didn't care for the way that each of them seemed to keep harping on things between t [...]

    Not my favorite of this series. Charlie has come back to Jackson Hole after working for several years in Tahoe. Unfortunately, while she was there she got caught in the middle of some illegal dealings, then discovered that the man she thought she loved was married and setting her up to take the fall. While cleared of any illegal doing, her reputation is toast and the best she can do is working for an old high school classmate. The working conditions aren't great, but at least she has a job.Walke [...]

    Well that was just delightful.

    Victoria Dahl is one of my favourite authors of contemporary romance, but I let myself be put off by the very lukewarm reviews of her latest series (especially the first book in it). Well, I shouldn't have, because her contemps just work for me, even when I see some issues with them.So Tough To Tame is the third in the series (which also includes a couple of short stories), but stands alone fine. Charlie Allington is used to being respected. She was a studious girl in school and, after leaving t [...]

    Goddddddd, Victoria Dahl can write a barnburning good book. How does she do it every time? I think I've already talked about this in my other Victoria Dahl reviews, but I'm going to repeat it because it's TRUE.Victoria Dahl--for me--can do no wrong. She writes romance novels that are so unlike anything I've ever read. But it's not outside a comfort zone. Here's how she does it: She takes tired trope (in this book's case: The Broken and Traumatized Girl Who Ran Back Home to Lick Her Wounds and Fi [...]

    I really enjoyed this series!! Now looking to see if there are any more.

    So Tough to Tame is my TBR Challenge book for June 2016. The topic: Favorite Tropes. I never get tired of the Friends-to-Lovers trope and So Tough to Tame is one of the best I’ve read. I’m not sure why it was on my TBR for so long sometimes a book or an author will come so well-recommended that I decide to read it after the fuss has died down and then I forget. Whatever the reason, I’m glad I took it off Mt. TBR because Dahl is unparalleled in her ability to give her readers fully-formed h [...]

    Dahl has been one of my favorite contemporary writers for quite some time and I've even bought a few of her books new in the past few years (much preferring library and used books). But this latest series has been nothing but infuriating. I had high hopes for this book but it didn't start off well.Walker Pearce is a real cowboy. Even down to the part where he's sleeping with his boss's wife. Well, he's sort of trying not to, but he's actually just been fired so now he can start sexxxing her up. [...]

    Victoria Dahl plante sa nouvelle série dans une petite ville américaine - Jackson Hole, dans le Wyoming - qui est aussi le pays des santiags, des Stetson et des cowboys. Et là je vous vois hausser le sourcil en guise d'acquiescement. Hmm Ce livre, en fait le 3ème tome (après Pas si sage et Un destin rebelle), peut être lu de façon totalement indépendante.Bref.J'ai franchement beaucoup aimé les débuts de l'histoire, l'humour, les personnages, le cadre et l'ambiance. C'était génial ! O [...]

    I'm pretty sure Walker just became my favorite Victoria Dahl hero! Charlie and Walker rekindle their highschool friendship when she returns home after a scandal pretty much rocked her world and turned it upside down. She's not the same sweet girl she was in school and sets out to prove it to Walker. And he is more than happy to go along for the ride, until he realizes he doesn't want to just be that fun fling anymore.I wanted to deck Charlie about 2/3 of the way into the book and tell Walker to [...]

    4 1/2 Stars. This is my first Victoria Dahl and I can see why her fans rave. At first glance I didn't think it would be my cup of tea but she sucked me in with her vulnerable but tough hero and her tough but vulnerable heroine. Unless it's the other way round.Walker knew Charlie back at high school when she was one of the smart girls tutoring the dumb kids. He was one of the dumb kids in his eyes because he struggled with school because of dyslexia.Charlie kind of liked him back then but he was [...]

    The Window Seat
    I loved this book! It had a little bit of everything: romance, suspense, forgiveness, and memorable characters that stayed with me after I finished it. However, what I enjoyed most about Victoria Dahl’s So Tough to Tame, was the theme of acceptance, the acceptance of others and more important the acknowledgement of one’s own flaws and turning them into a positive. Charlie Arlington left the small town of Jackson Hole, Wyoming and became a successful business woman. In spite of this, she retu [...]

    Read this on a campervan holiday in Cornwall, the perfect accompaniment to cold nights shivering on the Cornish coast as it happens (well, maybe not as perfect as having the hero of this book - big, buff Walker Pearce - wrapped around you, but close). It's the last (I think) of Dahl's Jackson Hole stories, with unemployed ranch hand Walker and disgraced security expert Charlie Allingham the couple getting it on in fine steaming Dahl style. A great rollicking read, with Walker's dyslexia, his cru [...]

    I enjoyed the way Charlie and Walker renew their relationship and turn it into something more. I also rather liked both their misinterpretation of the other's expectations and talking. What I did not like so much was mostly related to Charlie's naivete relating to her work, her past work and her current work. I really had trouble believing she could be good at security, considering how blindly trustworthy she was. Even though Walker's difficulties, (view spoiler)[ dyslexia in fact(hide spoiler)] [...]

    Charlie AllingtonWalker PearceWALKER IS SOOOOOOOO DREAMY! For serious, I can't not even begin to put into words the gushy feelings this guy gives me. He is a "man's man" but with such a sensitive soul and how he became the man he is despite is childhood is amazing to me. But this book is not all about Walker. Charlie is no wilting flower. Life has knocked her down more than once but she refuses to stay there. I love her tenacity and her sense of humor makes me want to be instant friends with her [...]

    Great series by Dahl. Close Enough to Touch was my fave, but I really enjoyed this one and Too Hot to Handle. Sexy, real and very satisfying.

    Wanted more from the epilogue but happy to see Rayleen happy :). I liked both Charlie and Walkerwonder what the future holds for them.

    Charlie Allington is reeling from a scandal that sapped her of all the professional respect she’d built up for herself over the years. It’s also a scandal that very nearly landed her in jail. She’s been lucky enough to get another job but the patronising scrutiny of the wife of the owner/manager (and her former school friend) means that most of the time, Charlie feels more uncomfortable than grateful. As head of security for a new resort that is about to open, accommodation is one of the p [...]

    Love love all the boos in this series I love all the books In the this series. I read them because the people are realistic and of course because they have Cowboys and who does like a good cowboy love story.

    Reminds me a bit of Unveiled. A pleasant read. Walker is a sweet, sweet character. :)

    Purple Iris
    This started off well, and then, I don't know what happened. The end was rushed and none of the secondary characters were developed at all. Disappointing.

    ripeforreader/201My rating: 4 of 5 ⭐Back in town after leaving Vegas behind her, along with some bad choices and false accusations, security expert Charlie Allington is hoping that the new resort going up in Jackson Hole will be her opportunity to try for a better future. The wife of the owner, an old girlfriend from school, is reminding Charlie constantly how lucky she should count herself to have been given such an opportunity, and she is not doing it in a very nice way. In fact, Charlie fee [...]

    allaboutromance/book-revieThere is a lot about So Tough to Tame that really is fresh and unique. There is also a lot about this book that makes a reader cringe. At least it made ME cringe. The result was sort of a mixed bag of potential that fell slightly short of the goal.Charlie Allington has come home to Jackson Hole, Wyoming to lick her wounds. She found out the hard way that being intelligent does not mean you cannot be a victim to another’s perfidy. As a security expert, she was a rising [...]

    This review also appears onReading with Analysis.I read this book two months ago, enjoyed it, and fully expected to have a review up in a much more timely manner, but I had a hard time writing about it, and I'm still not completely sure why.Dahl's writing is fun and sharp and quick (and velvety), and I enjoy the hell out of her books. Part of what I love so much is that she's writing these edgy, contemporary romances in an unlikely setting. Who would expect a book that dips its toe in hookup cul [...]

    For this review and more visit my blogSo Tough to Tame is the third book in Victoria Dahl’s Jackson series but can be read on its own. This is the second book of the series I have read, I really enjoyed Too Hot to Handle, the second book in the series so my expectations going into this was fairly high. So Tough to Tame is nothing like Too Hot to Handle which is a good thing for the series but I didn’t like it as much.Charlie has returned home after a scandal forces her from her job and home. [...]

    Reviewed for Romancing Rakes for the Love of Romance:Charlie Allington returns to Jackson Hole, Wyoming after losing her job under rather scandalous circumstances. Walker Pearce is a cowboy that figures he's not meant for anything more than rounding up cattle and driving the herds. When Charlie moves back into town, Walker is enlisted to help convince his grouchy landlady, Rayleen, to allow a woman to live in one of the apartments in her Stud Farm complex (Rayleen likes to keep hot male eye cand [...]

    So Tough to Tame marks my third time reading Dahl's work. I've learned one very important lesson—damn, she sure knows how to write sexy scenes! Smoking hot, very steamy, and with a bit of dirty talk liberally sprinkled throughout! Add to that the fact that Dahl also knows how to write great banter, chemistry, and wit; it goes without saying that I am a huge fan, and I am only sorry that I waited so long to read her books. The fact that she's a fellow Utahn? Yeah, that's only the cherry on top [...]
