A LOVELY ROSE (4 STARS): "Snowed in with the Montana Ranger is the first book in the All-American Heroes series by Jan Bowles. I chose this book because I am a fan of Jan Bowles. I love how she brings such life and chemistry to her characters. Brooke Johnson lost her first husband to her little sister. After a divorce she heads off to Montana for a research project. While she is there she meets Park Ranger Travis McTeer. Brooke does not want to get hurt again so she is very leery of getting involved with anyone. She is a very strong person. It takes a lot not to crumble when you go through what she did. Travis is a Park Ranger at Glacier National park. Travis is attracted to Brooke from the moment they meet. While he enjoys his life the way it is, he realizes that Brooke is special. Brooke and Travis work well together as they evade escaped criminals. I loved that they did not fall into bed together right away. It was very realistic that they tried to fight there attraction to each other. The chemistry between Travis and Brooke is off the charts in and out of the bedroom. I enjoyed how Brooke’s sister Ashleigh helped the characters be able to talk and deal with their trust issues. I really liked this book. This series has such promise I cannot wait for the next book in the series. I hope that we get to see more of Brooke and Travis as the series continues." -- Victoria, Romancing the Book

The sex scenes are scorching hot and the sexual antics of Brooke and Travis are very entertaining.

“Having trouble?” Travis McTeer had a huge smile to his face as he watched her struggling with the chains. Those dimples sure were sexy. Damn. Concentrate on what you’re doing, girl.
“No, I’m perfectly fine,” she answered irritably, wondering why she felt like Jell-O around him.
“Are you sure?”
Brooke tried to attach the links together with the hook, but scuffed her hand in the process. Maybe she should just admit defeat. “Well, okay, I guess you can see I can’t quite get this hook in place.” She looked up. He had a smug self-satisfied smile to his face. “Shouldn’t you be directing traffic?” she commented sarcastically.
“Even rangers are allowed breaks.” He squatted down and took the heavy chains from her. “Here, let me do that. Your delicate little hands aren’t designed for fitting snow chains. They’ll rip them to shreds. Especially in this freezing weather.”
Brooke stood and then blew on her hands to restore the circulation. The air sure was cold. “Go on, say it.”
“Say what?” he asked, hooking the chains on the tire with ease.
“Let a man do a man’s job, ’cause that’s what you’re thinking. I bet you think I’m only good at painting my nails and shopping.”
He laughed for the second time. “I see, Professor. So you think I’m some sort of male chauvinist?”
“Well, aren’t you?”
“Perhaps, but there’s plenty of women capable of fitting snow chains ’round these parts.”
“Oh, that makes me feel better already,” she snapped irritably.
He looked her up and down. “It’s just that they’re not quite as petite and feminine as you, Professor.”
She had mixed feelings about his observations. It pleased her that he found her feminine and womanly, but annoyed her that he thought her incapable of looking after herself. Brooke placed her hands defiantly on her hips. This man was infuriating.
He raised an eyebrow. “Now don’t go and get all riled up. Not when I’m doing you a favor.” He moved to the next wheel. “So what brings you to Glacier? The scenery, or something else?”
“I’m doing a five-year research project.”
“Climate change. It’s part of a UN directive.”
“I’m impressed.” He held out his hand. “Professor, give me the keys. I need to drive your car forward a couple of feet to wrap the chains ’round the tires.”
“Are you gonna call me Professor all the time?”
“I’m just trying to be professional, ma’am. Why?”
“It makes me feel like you’re one of my interns at the research center where I worked in Portland.”
He smiled. “I take it they’re young, eager puppies all trying to impress.”
Brooke nodded. “Yeah, totally unlike you, I might add, in every respect.”
He chuckled. “I guess I was asking for that, Professor.” He thought for a moment. “Maybe we should be on first-name terms, considering you’ll be on my patch for the next five years. I can’t keep calling you Professor.”
“Very well, call me by my first name.”
An amused expression surfaced on his face. “Why, thank you, Brooke, that’s real friendly of you.” He took the keys from her hand and began easing into her driver’s seat. “Christ, you’re tiny, Brooke. I’ve gotta move this seat all the way back to get in.” She watched him press the switch for the electric seat, and it began to glide slowly backward.
“You remembered my name?”
“Part of my job, Brooke. It’s on your driver’s license.” He started the car and eased it forward a few feet, rolling the tires over the chains. He made it look so simple.
In next to no time, he had all four wheels booted up with snow chains and tensioners. When he handed back the keys with a smile, Brooke couldn’t help but let her gaze rest on his big, strong hands. With some satisfaction she noticed he wasn’t wearing a marriage band on his finger. Why she’d even bothered looking she hadn’t a clue. She certainly wasn’t interested in starting another relationship, especially with a man as obviously chauvinistic as Travis McTeer. Perhaps it was just her curiosity working overtime.
“Hey, Bear. You need to take over here, it’s time for my break,” a colleague called from the roadside.
Travis raised a hand in acknowledgment to the other ranger controlling the traffic. “Yeah, sure, Josh. Be right over.”
“I thought your name was Travis?”
“But didn’t he just call you Bear?”
“Yes, it’s a long story. Maybe I’ll share it with you one day.”
“Beautiful. You’re beautiful, Brooke.” Travis immediately dipped a finger between her legs and caressed her clitoris. She wound her hands into his hair as he rested his head against her softly undulating belly.
“Babe, you’re so wet.”
Her pussy throbbed with need. Her whole body ached for him. “Travis, make love to me. Fuck me. Make me yours.”
“You got it, babe.” He immediately pressed her down onto the bed. Using his power and strength, he took hold of her legs and spread her thighs wide apart. Before she could say anything, he’d lowered his head to her pussy. Like a man possessed, he licked her slit, sliding his tongue deep inside her moist entrance. Trailing his tongue from her asshole to her clit in one smooth movement, her whole body arched, and her head and shoulders lifted from the bed in response to the exquisite feeling.
“Oh, so good, Travis, so good.”
“You bet, babe.” Travis feverishly licked her pussy before sucking her clit. Gently, very gently, he teased the sensitive flesh with his teeth and tongue until she couldn’t stop herself moaning in ecstasy.
“Oh, God, yes, yes.”
Like the alpha animal in a pack, he marked her as his own. Ripples of pure pleasure flowed into her pussy. When she looked down, she saw his beautiful, rugged face buried between her legs. Her stomach undulated and quivered as she bucked from the incredible oral stimulation. She threaded her fingers into his gorgeous, thick hair, pulling and tugging at it as she clung desperately to him, savoring the pleasure he gave her.
“Travis, oh, dear, God. Travis,” she screamed as her sexual pleasure finally reached tipping point. She felt a wonderful orgasm start deep inside her, pulsing through her body. He continued unabated, licking her clit as her climax rippled and merged with one multiple release after another.
She tried to catch her breath as he slowly moved up her body, planting tiny butterfly kisses to her belly and breasts.
Still in his sexy ranger uniform, he stared into her eyes and smiled. “I’ve thought of nothing else but being with you these last few days—loving you.” He tenderly kissed her lips as he pressed himself closer. Even through the thick material of his pants, she felt his hard, twitching erection pressing against her wanton pussy. “Mmm, you taste so good, babe.” He smoothed the hair from her eyes. “You’ve driven me fucking crazy, not answering my calls.”
“I wanted to, Travis. I really wanted to, but—”
“It’s okay, babe. That was then, and this is now.” He rocked his hips, forcing her legs wider. “I’m so desperate for you, Brooke.” He reached down between their bodies and undid the fly of his pants. He was so aroused his erect prick immediately burst through the opening. Brooke couldn’t help licking her lips in anticipation.
“Look at me, babe.”
She did as he asked, staring mesmerized into his beautiful blue eyes. They burned with an intensity that simply took her breath away. He dipped down and kissed her lips as he slowly began sliding his hard prick inside her. The sheer physical pleasure of being filled so deliciously made her gasp out loud.
Placing a hand on either side of her head, Travis held his weight from her. He looked down between their bodies. “Mmm, it makes me feel so fucking horny, watching my prick disappear inside you. When I’m deep within you, I feel whole, Brooke. I feel like a man.” His voice was gruff and emotionally charged.
Brooke opened her legs wider, desperately trying to accommodate his length and girth. Her head tipped back in sheer pleasure as he impaled her, until they were as one. His huge cock stretched her pussy wide, and she panted breathlessly. “Travis, you feel so good.”
“You too,” he groaned as he finally pushed fully home.
She clung to his shoulders as he started making long, deep lunges, which caressed his cock from base to tip inside her. Every nerve ending in her pussy came alive and throbbed from the incredible stimulation. Brooke arched her body, wanting more. Wrapping her legs around him, she drew him closer, wanting to be as one with the man she loved. With her ankles crossed under his butt, she pulled him tighter with each thrust that he made.
It was building, building, reaching a crescendo. Through the material of his uniform, her fingernails scored deep into his shoulders as he impaled her repeatedly with his potent shaft. She simply adored the way his big cock glistened with her feminine juices as it thrust in and out of her wet pussy.
Travis covered her mouth with his own, his tongue spearing between her lips as he possessed her and dominated her completely.
