THIS COWBOY'S SON (4) by Mary Sullivan: A lot has changed in the five years since Matt Long slept with Jenny Sterling and then left town. Jenny now has a 4-year-old son named Jesse and is about to marry Angus Kinsey, who Matt looks to as a second father. Hiring on to work at Angus’ ranch to repay a debt to the man, Matt learns that Jenny is his boss and that Jesse is his son. The two are soon battling their attraction, but it’s Angus who calls off the wedding when his own old love interest returns. The addition of a secondary romance adds depth and complexity to this story. Matt’s desire to do the right thing is highlighted by Angus’ breaking of his promise to Jenny when he sleeps with his old flame. Using Angus as the foil allows Sullivan to develop Matt’s character more fully.

This Cowboy's Son /Home On The Ranch/

Submitted by mlacroix on July 8, 2010 - 4:10pm.

As soon as Matthew Long set foot on the Circle K, Jenny Sterling told him that he was her son's father. His first instinct was to high tail it out of town, like he did five years before. But something stopped him. Matthew wanted to get to know his son. Jenny had a different idea. She was getting married in two weeks and she knew Matthew was going to run. Because that's what he did best. But as much as he does want to high tell it out of Montana, something keeps stopping him.

I really enjoyed this book. I'm glad that authors are now writing seriously flawed hero's. Because that's what Matthew is. He can't let go of his childhood and how painfully it was growing up in a seriously dysfunctional home. But the love and patience of a good woman always wins.
