Book Description

Jamie trailed her fingernail from Josh’s collarbone to navel and back again. “Umm, I like a man with self-control,” she offered completely off the subject of exactly why she was at Seabridge and not safely tucked away in London protected by her bodyguards.
“You’re pushing my outer limits, babe. But you know that don’t you?” Josh hardened himself against her tender assault.
“Of course. I feel you. You want me. You also want to kill me. I can honestly say it is a very heady combination of sex and danger.”

Part detective novel, part fantasy, Bones of Contention is Ranay James’ third and final installment of The McKinnon’s Legends—The American Men series.

The arm of justice in a small West Texas county and former S.W.A.T. leader in Miami, Sheriff Josh McKinnon has experienced a lot when it comes to upholding the law. He thought he had already endured the worst in the last few years after his daughter was kidnapped, but little did he know his latest case was going to throw him yet another curveball and change his destiny in ways he could never have dreamed. Will he be able to enforce the law he was born to uphold and still be with the woman he loves?

Dr. Jamie Gillman is not your average university professor. She is a renowned anthropologist who has a feel for the bones that is otherworldly to say the least. Not new to men and their obstacles, she initially wants to say ‘no’ to this charming lawman when he shows up at her lab asking for her help with a homicide investigation, but there’s just something about him that draws her in. Will she be forced to go against all logic to pursue the one man which Fate paradoxically preordained to be her mortal enemy and one great love of her life?

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 super shiny stars! 23 Feb. 2014

what the blur says....Part detective novel, part fantasy, Bones of Contention is Ranay James’ third and final instalment of The McKinnon’s Legends—The American Men series.

And I am so very sad to see the end of these men, I really!! I have loved all the McKinnon men, right from Nic, through Connor, Cullen, Gage and Decklyn. and onto the American Men, Robert, Mason and, finally, Josh. I do believe that James may well have saved the best for last!!
what I liked about it....well, without sounding gushy, ALL OF IT!! there is love, a hate spanning thousands of year, mythology and history. secrets unknown to the reader AND the characters before now! Also some of this book takes place in London and Seabridge, so it Gage plays a part in this one, although there is no time travel involved.

Josh is as he says he is, and Jamie, well Jamie is not. I'm not gonna go into details, cos that will spoil it, BUT Josh discovers there is much more to him, as well as what's going on with Jamie. Josh's daughter Jesse also finds herself in a bit of a pickle in this book, and she too, discovers herself.

we have vampires, elves, goblins, the Maji take a part with king Jacob playing a role in Josh's discovery. even zombies are mentioned, and have to be kept apart from the goblins, since they are dead, and goblins like rotting meat! some witty one liners, some amazing history, and the deepest longest tale I have read in a while. I am going to need to reread about all these men again some time, I really am!

thank you, Ms James, for a love affair that I introduced my sister and my elder daughter to, I will miss these men. BUT BUT BUT so looking forward to The Vampires of Nirvana!!!

Have just finished Bones of Contention......having read all the McKinnon Legends so far I'm finding myself to be a great fan of your stories. They are factual, sensual and loving. Totally not unbelievable, in the realms of time travel lol.
Great books can't wait to read more of Ranay James!

A great read. Ms James has the reader enthralled from page one. The reintroduction of past characters is fun and the book brings the trilogy to a close.

Absolutely wonderful. A superb story, beautifully written. What a series, every one a Keeper. I thoroughly enjoyed each and every one. If you enjoy a little bit of fantasy I recommend that you buy the complete series. Read and enjoy.
