Previously published as Gentling the Cowboy, part of the Texan Nights series.
From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Ruth Cardello comes the steamy debut to the Lone Star Burn series.
Would-be writer Sarah Dery has just turned twenty-five and feels like her life is on hold. She’s done squat with her English degree and is just killing time working for her parents. So, when the opportunity to spend the summer working on a ranch in Texas comes her way, she jumps at the chance—figuring it might be just the jolt she needs to get her creative juices flowing.
Tony Carlton is a handsome and reclusive horse trainer with a tortured past and an eye for trouble, this time in the form of a naked blonde stranger he finds in his shower.
The wrong turn that led Sarah into the arms of this sexy, brooding cowboy turns out to be just what she needed to find her steamy inner voice, but will their connection be enough to break down Tony’s defenses?
My Opinion 5 STARS
**Copy Provided by Netgalley and Montlake Romance for an honest review**
If your name is Tony Dalton, expect your quiet ordered life to be completely turned around by the lost Sarah Dery.
Sarah has travelled down to Texas to spend the summer with her friend Lucy on her Ranch, but has unwittingly found herself on another Ranch in the same name in a town with a similar name.
The closed off Tony doesn't quite know what to make of Sarah and makes the first mistake when he invites her to stay for the night when she can't contact her friend.
Tony makes more and more concessions for the girl as she keeps trying to leave, to the amusement of his staff.
There are many funny moments, many self healing moments and many steamy moments. There is more than enough to keep most romance readers very happy and clambering for more.
I can't wait for the next book in the series to be release.
