THE TROUBLE WITH COWBOYS
Annie Wilkerson is Moose Creek's premiere horse trainer and equine columnist for Montana Living. Money is tight as she tries to send her kid sister through college and provide for her young nephew. When Annie's column is cancelled., she's given first shot at a new lovelorn column -- and she can't afford to turn it down. Only problem is...Annie's never been in love.
Always resourceful, she reluctantly strikes a deal with town's smooth-talking ladies' man Dylan Taylor. She'll work with his ailing horse, Braveheart, if he'll help her answer the reader letters.
Working closely with Dylan is harder than Annie imagined, and she quickly realizes she may have misjudged him. But her unwavering conviction that cowboys are nothing but trouble has kept her heart safe for years. And she can't risk getting hurt now.
The more Annie tries to control things, the more they fall apart. Her feelings are spinning out of control, and her sister's antics are making life increasingly more difficult. Annie knows she needs to turn the reins over to God but surrender has never come easily.
When Dylan relieves his feelings for her, Annie doesn't what to trust -- her head or her heart. The trouble with this cowboy is that he might be exactly what she needs.

My thanks to my public library for providing me with a copy of this awesome retro read!
If you have a cowboy hat grab it quick -- you'll need it to fan yourself when the heat starts rising from these smoldering pages. Be still my heart. The trouble with cowboys indeed! And you know what? You might want to have a fire brigade on standby -- ready to put out any fires that might start courtesy of all the sparks flying between Dylan and Annie. Phew! This is one toe-curling, heart-stomping read.
Hunter showcases God's grace through the messy lives of this hero and heroine. Love the depth in the faith thread -- it's simple and powerful but often hard to remember when we are in the midst of life's trials. And if the romance isn't enough to discombobulate you, the twists and turns in the plot will finish the job. Ah, the sweet stuff rabid readers are made from!
