Reining In The Rio Grande from the Author: Fred M. Phillips. The Rio Grande was ancient long before the first humans reached its banks. These days, the highly regulated river looks nothing like it did to those early settlers. Alternately viewed as a valuable ecosystem and life-sustaining foundation of community welfare or a commodity to be engineered to yield maximum economic benefit, the Rio Grande has brought many advantages to those who live in its valley, but the benefits have come at a price. This study examines human interactions with the Rio Grande from prehistoric time to the present day and explores what possibilities remain for the desert river. From the perspectives of law, development, tradition, and geology, the authors weigh what has been gained and lost by reining in the Rio Grande.

Reining In from the Author: Bonnie Bryant. Will Lisa Atwood make a decision that will split up three best friends forever? Seventeen-year-old Lisa never thought she’d be spending the summer three thousand miles away from her two best friends, Carole and Stevie, and her boyfriend, Alex. But sunny California has its perks—like a dream job working on the set of Paradise Ranch, one of the hottest shows on TV. It’s got horses and good-looking guys—like seriously swoon-worthy actors Skye Ransom and Jeremiah Jamison. Back home, Carole’s still crushing on stable hand Ben Marlow, who’s as gorgeous—and mysterious—as ever, and Stevie continues to brood over the near-fatal car accident from earlier in the summer. Then Stevie and Carole decide to take matters into their own hands. Will they be able to bring back their friend? Or will Lisa stay in Los Angeles forever?

Reining In Riley from the Author: Claire Britain. When Joanna Armstrong hires Riley Carrington to work for her company—one of Los Angeles’ most prestigious advertising firms—she knows she’s taking a risk. With her sharp tongue and defiant attitude, Riley seems bound for trouble, but there’s something special about her that Joanna can’t bring herself to pass up. After Riley insults one of the company’s senior partners, however, Joanna decides that what the beautiful, free-spirited twenty-seven-year-old needs is structure and consequences. Riley faces a suspension without pay for her misconduct, and when Joanna offers her an alternate proposal she hesitantly agrees. She will work for Joanna at her home office, but first she’ll submit to a thorough, no-nonsense paddling, and any future misbehavior will earn her more of the same, this time on her bare bottom. Joanna’s firm-handed discipline turns out to be just what Riley has been missing, and soon they have become much more than just boss and employee. Yet despite Joanna’s best efforts and Riley’s frequently sore bottom, her wild and careless behavior continues and before long a motorcycle accident almost claims her life. Joanna takes it upon herself to care for her girlfriend, though her treatment often leaves Riley blushing crimson, but once Riley recovers will Joanna be prepared to do whatever it takes to rein her in before it is too late? Publisher’s Note: Reining in Riley is an erotic romance novel that contains spankings, sexual scenes, anal play, elements of medical play, elements of BDSM, and more.

Stallions And Studs Reining In Rio from the Author: Terry O'Reilly. The final installment in the Stallions and Studs series sees wrangler and riding instructor Rio Cody enjoying the single life. He can -- and often does -- have a different guest in his bedroll every night. Despite the urgings of fellow ranch hands, most of whom have found partners, Rio sticks to his motto of “monogamy is monotony.” However, Rio’s resolve to stay foot-loose is severely tested when he locks horns with New York college student, Mark Wembley, at a local Quarter Horse show. Mark is not at all Rio’s type, and he’s a pain in the butt to boot. Rio returns to his job at the gay dude ranch and manages, mostly, to put Mark out of his mind. What happens when Mark shows up at Stallions and Studs as a guest and Rio is forced to face the fact that despite all his efforts to the contrary, he finds himself having feelings for Mark? Will Rio dig in his boot heels and continue to ride life’s trails alone, or will Mark do what no other man has, rein in Rio?
