COWBOY'S CHRISTMAS GUARDIAN
Under the rancher's protection
Someone is dead set on stopping Shelby Arroyo from doing her job: assessing mineral rights in a mine in gold country. But after rancher Barrett Thorn rescues her from an attack, the handsome widowed cowboy seems to feel responsible for her. That is, until he discovers she's from the family that he'll never forgive for his wife's death.
As the threats against Shelby escalate, cowboy honor and an unexpected attraction keep Barrett by her side, even at his own risk. And since Shelby won't back down, Barrett must protect the brave, loyal woman he has no business falling for...a woman someone wants to kill by Christmas.
Gold Country Cowboys: The code of the West rules the land for these men
Significant to note -- Barrett has brothers and this will become an important fact you'll want to remember after you've read this novel. Because it's so sublimely good you'll want all the Thorn men to have their own story and since this is the first book in the Gold Country Cowboys series, I think the author is going to indulge us. I'm getting a thrill of shivers just contemplating that. Honor bound cowboys genetically programmed to fight for truth and protect damsels in distress. Yes please! Bring 'em on!!
So, Barrett's all that and more. A grieving widower who has had four long years to come to grips with the death of his wife. He's moving on -- but not past -- the tragedy. Bitterness has taken hold and that makes for major fireworks when he discovers who Shelby is. But that doesn't stop him from watching out for her. Reluctantly -- which makes it all the more noble.
And Shelby definitely needs protection. She's in desperate danger from the moment we first meet her right through to the breathtaking conclusion. Fasten your seatbelts because this is one wild and scary ride. Hair raising good stuff. And the romance? It'll toe-curl with the best of them. Awesome start to a thrilling new series.
