Image of Cowboy Tough

Kennedy really knows how to write fish-out-of-water stories where city girls cope with country life. This book does well on those elements and shines when the cowboy and his artist give into their bubbling sexual tension. However, readers may be less enamored with the overly complicated plot and its too-quick resolution.

Cat Crendall is an artist in search of inspiration after the death of her sister. She leaves her unsatisfying advertising job to teach art workshops in France or Italy, but ends up on the Boyd Ranch in Wyoming. Bronc rider Mack Boyd will don chaps or any other silly costume to help his mother save their ranch. Cat and Mack can’t deny their instant chemistry, but before they can explore the future of their budding feelings, Cat must heal her relationship with her motherless niece, while Mack needs to save his mother from her not-quite ex-husband and reconnect with his own daughter.
