Characters: Libby McKay, Quinn McKay
Wyoming rancher Quinn McKay thought he’d only have to bide time until his level-headed wife came to her senses and called a halt to this “trial separation”. He never believed the marital rough patch would drag on for a coon’s age.
Libby McKay knew when she married the gruff, laid-back cowboy that he wasn’t prone to blathering about his feelings. But three months have passed and her stubborn-as-a-mule husband is still living by himself in the horse trailer. It seems he’d rather hold onto his pride than hold onto her.
Quinn realizes Libby is determined to move on if he doesn’t loosen his tongue and he’ll lose the only woman he’s ever loved. In a last-ditch effort to keep her in his life, he offers her one weekend of uninterrupted sexual decadence.
Reigniting the passion is easy. The hard part comes after the sheets have cooled and they find out if what remains is strong enough to survive past mistakes.
Libby and Quinn’s marriage is falling apart and neither knows how to fix it. Libby is to the point of not even wanting to try any longer. Like the title states, Quinn is the strong, silent type. He doesn’t communicate with his wife at all.
Libby is withdrawn due to pressure from her mother-in-law to have a baby and her lack of being successful at that. The two of them decide to give it another go by having a no holds barred weekend of all you can take sex.
They rediscover the love and passion they have for one another as well as learn what pleases their partner.
This was a nice short read of an established couple working to making a marriage work. So often we get to take the journey with a couple falling in love, but we rarely get to take the journey of them working to stay in love.
