ONE GOOD COWBOY (3) by Catherine Mann: The McNair cousins must pass their terminally ill grandmother’s tests to inherit their fortunes, so Stone McNair searches for new homes for her rescue dogs. Enter Johanna Fletcher, Stone’s ex-fiancée, who has been asked to assist him on this task. Recalling the heat that once flared between them, Johanna’s not sure they’ll be able to keep their hands off each other. But an admission from Stone may ruin any possibility of reconciliation. In this first in Mann’s Diamonds in the Rough trilogy, lots of hot passion doesn’t make up for the big secret the hero keeps from the heroine and another admission, which feel like random plot devices.

One Good Cowboy by Catherine Mann

I love a good romance and Catherine Mann never fails to deliver with heart-felt emotions and gorgeous phrases that make that characters and surroundings come alive.
"She smiled with a siren's gleam in her eyes."
"Concern nipped like a feisty foal".
"Moonlight cast a dappled path through the pine trees".
"The sun sank on the horizon like a melting orange Dreamsicle."
Breathless passion and emotions that ride the soul can always be found in Mann's hero and heroine. Stone and Joanna have some major stumbling blocks and conflicts to work out but they are drawn to each other with yearning and not much self control! That's the fun part. It's a romance after all. They also go through quite a bit of emotional growth as well which brings the heart-warming to play. Very nicely done.

Stone McNair runs part of the family business but his grandmother has put stipulations on the future. Ex-finance Johanna Fletcher is the local vet and while Stone would prefer to avoid her, temptation, unresolved feelings and a matchmaking grandmother get the two together for some much needed time alone.

Harlequin Desire and Catherine Mann are a perfect match for a breathtaking romance. This book is right on target.
