Young Marine, Josiah Samuels, was sent home from the Korean Conflict and honored with a Purple Heart for the shrapnel wounds across his chest.  Although he proudly served his country, he lived on a daily basis haunted by the sights and sounds of warfare.

As a cattle rancher, he raised stock for local rodeos and lived a simple life of solitude. But, the loneliness and the void the war created in his chest began to overwhelm him.

Then, because of a “cow emergency”, he met Minnie Mitchell, a spitfire neighboring rancher who finished veterinary school in a time when few women were even admitted to University veterinarian programs. She faced her own obstacles in running her family’s cattle operation and finding a job as a vet in stereotypical 1950’s Oklahoma.

Minnie passionately rattled Josiah’s world in ways he previously only dreamed. Now, together, these Trailblazers must find a way to keep Minnie close to the family ranch…and Josiah’s loving arms.

[ Review Posted: Jul 24, 2013 ] - See all my reviews
LOVEDUST AND TRAILBLAZERS was based in the 1950's where women could vote but were still frowned upon when they decided to do a "man's job". Minnie met an intriguing man when she asked for help to save her pet cow from a muddied pond. Josiah met a woman he thought was beautiful. That is when they both had the same thought about reaching thirty and still had not met the person they were destined to be with.

This is a story of a young man by name of Josiah Samuels who fought in the Korean War and now he is back at his ranch in Oklahoma. He is trying to fit back into life without the military and trying to live. He still gets startled when he hears a loud noise but now he is trying to deal with feelings for a woman. Josiah has seen so much death; he saw his fellow troops die basically in front of him. Now he is living with his little brother, Zeke, tending to his family ranch. At times when he feels like he's back in Korea, he goes out into the open area and just feels his surroundings and that makes him feel like he is no longer in hell. 

Minnie Mitchell is a woman veterinarian who had to make herself known in a man's world, in a man's job. While the men were off fighting for our country, Minnie was out in Texas taking care of animals at a ranch. She was known for not minding getting dirty, but still, the Texas College wouldn't take her in when she wanted to study to become a Veterinarian. Since Texas would not take her, she was able to study in Oklahoma, but only after some major convincing. Now she is living in a ranch with her father beside the Cattle Company Ranch. She has tried to get a job with the local veterinary clinic, but because she was a woman, she has a hard time doing so.

LOVEDUST AND TRAILBLAZERS is a well-written historical romance that makes you think of how things were back in the 1950's. It also gives you a history lesson of the Rodeo's. I had no clue that there was such a thing as a prison rodeo. The author did a good job in developing these characters and making them feel so real. This book brought a smile to my face several times during the read because of the interaction between Josiah and Minnie. I liked that I was able to get to know Minnie and Josiah even if their relationship started off a little fast. The loves scenes were tender and hot. I felt for Josiah because when he was around Minnie, he finally felt at peace. It seems that they were made for each other to seek comfort and love. You never know what God has in store for you, especially at times when you think you have nothing left in you.

I loved how the author described the Oklahoma terrain. Especially your typical summer storm that comes out of nowhere, when you can smell the wet dirt, you can feel the rumble of the thunder, the lightning that lights up the sky. Then of course you have those slimy slithers that like to eat their prey whole. 

LOVEDUST AND TRAILBLAZERS is a wonderful read. I enjoyed getting to know these characters and fell in love with him. Now I just hope there will be a happily ever after for Zeke and Bernice; I think that would be a great book. 


Adult Excerpt

Minnie pulled only slightly away. “Josiah, I want you to make love to me. I am a woman with needs and it’s been so long since I’ve been touched by a man. Even when I did, it felt nothing like what you bring forth in me. Right now, you’ve created such a burn in my loins that I don’t even care if you lose respect for me for being so bold. I need you that much.”

With those words, Minnie began unbuttoning her shirt. Josiah sat transfixed watching her dainty hands manipulate the buttons back out the buttonholes. She worked slowly, almost teasingly, as he watched her creamy, freckled décolletage peek through the loosened neckline. She tugged her hemline out from her jeans and leaned in once more for another kiss, this time, sliding her tongue in between his slightly parted lips. His breath became ragged and course, mimicking the impulses shocking his system.

“I have nothing but respect for you Minnie, and even more so at this very moment.”

Pulling her lips away from his, she sucked his tongue into her mouth, leaned back, and with a soft smacking sound, released his tasty tongue. She kept her eyes on his as she slid the shirt down her arms and into a small bundle on the floor next to her thigh. Minnie reached back and swiftly unclasped her bra and in one motion freed her small pert breasts from the white underwire lace. Josiah’s mouth watered at the sight of her nipples immediately tightening into small hard nubs, ready for his tongue.

He leaned forward and grazed his tongue against her neck, moving his head down for her breasts. He took one nipple gently into his mouth and lightly sucked it, reaching his hand to caress the other one. Minnie brought one hand up and traced the outline of his lips as he licked and sucked her nipple. She ran her fingers in line with his tongue, wetting them with his saliva. She then used her wet fingers to caress the other nipple into the same hardened intensity.

Minnie reached for the snap buttons on Josiah’s shirt. She popped them open hungrily, reaching for his chest. She gasped taking in  his manly torso, magnificent, muscular, and also riddled with scars. “You are a beautiful man, Josiah.”

“The afternoon provided us with the perfect background to make love. Are you okay here in the loft?” Josiah looked around eagerly for a more comfortable location.

“Yes, I actually have a couple of quilts up here for when I need to escape for a nap.” Minnie stood up and quickly retrieved two quilts from a corner trunk. “I think we will be fine right here by the open hayloft door. Only the lightning will see what we are doing.”

She spread the quilts one of top of each other as Josiah removed his own shirt and tossed it across the floor. Minnie began unbuttoning her jeans before he stopped her. “Please allow me, I want to fully experience you as I do this.”

Leaning over, he once again raked her nipples with his hungry tongue as he dropped to his knees. He unzipped her jeans and slid them halfway down her thighs. “Minnie, has a man ever kissed you intimately before, you know, below the waist?”

“Oh, cowboy, no, but how I’ve dreamed of it. Are you going to teach me about it?” Minnie held her breath in excited anticipation.

“I’m going to try it, Minnie, but, it’s a first for me too. I just can’t help myself, I want to devour you.” Josiah leaned in and kissed her against her panties. He felt the heat coming from her core. His panting made her panties moist on the outside. He reached around and cupped her ass with his large, strong hands, pressing her groin into his face.

Josiah began tentatively kissing her intimate region through the simple, cotton fabric. Minnie’s knees began to buckle and he stood quickly to right her balance. Josiah scooped her up into his arms and lifted her close to him. “This is more intense than I ever imagined, Minnie, you must know this.”

Speechless, Minnie only nodded in agreement. Josiah gingerly dropped to his knees on the makeshift bed, still cradling her in his arms, relishing the feel of her naked torso against his chest. He laid her down and moved to slide her jeans from her legs. He then slid her panties down her thighs, marveling at her intimate beauty. The gentle “V” of hair curling gracefully around the core of her femininity captured his attention and filled in the blanks of his imagination.  

Josiah bent to graze the curling pelvic tendrils with his mouth. Exploring, he gauged his success by her physical reactions and gasps of pleasure. His tongue pushed between the folds to find the hardening nub of her clitoris, and Minnie moaned his name. “Oh, Josiah, oh my goodness.”  Minnie rocked against his tongue and he added his fingers to gently spread the creases for better reach.

“You taste so sweet, yet tangy and delightful.” Josiah mumbled against her silky, slippery essence.

Minnie came as the lightning crashed with a loud crack. She gripped Josiah’s head and forced her heated center even further into his face. Keeping pace with her intensity, he sucked her satiny skin deeply into his mouth, releasing with loud smacking noises, only encouraging their passions.

“I need you inside me, Josiah, all of you, right now.”

Josiah stood quickly, unbuttoned, and then unzipped his own jeans. He shoved them down, taking his boxers with them. His rock hard  sizeable manhood raised unwavering, now released from the confines of the denim. Minnie, took in his full frontal nudity, appreciating both his size and obvious response to their interlude. “Take me, Josiah, take me right now.”

Josiah brought himself down onto Minnie, kissing her as he mounted her missionary style. Her wetness allowed for easy entry, yet her feminine tightness enveloped his erection and hugged every sensitive spot on his penis. He began slowly, stroking gently as he stretched deeply into her core. “Oh, Minnie, I had no idea you’d feel this good.”
