Synopsis: "A cowboy with a wild side
Kirby Regan isn't opposed living on the edge. After all, she just quit her career in Washington, D.C, so she could move back to Wyoming and buy her family's ranch. But hiking the Tetons after dark during a snowstorm goes beyond being adventurous, especially when Kirby's boss warns her that an escaped convict is at large. Sheltering in a cave seems the safest option to ride out the blizzard-until Kirby realizes it's already occupied . . . by a ruggedly handsome cowboy.
Like the mustangs he treats, veterinarian and rancher Casey Merrick prefers to live wild and free, which is why a relationship is not in the cards for him. He doesn't mind sharing his space with a gorgeous stranger, as long as they can both keep their distance-a task that begins to seem impossible as the attraction between them heats up. But before they can worry about the spark smoldering between them, Casey must find a way to protect Kirby from nature's most ruthless conditions . . . and a convicted killer on the loose."
My Review: This might be one of my new favorite cowboy romance series. I am always a sucker for Wyoming cowboys in particular, thanks to my childhood growing up there. After reading the first book, I was super excited to get into this one, Casey was my favorite brother and I couldn't wait to read his story. He did not disappoint me, he was just as expected, a little rough and tough, self-reliant, strong cowboy but with that quiet and patient side needed to work with animals. Kirby was also a girl after my own heart, grew up on a ranch and returning after a life in the big city. She still had that strong and independent streak that I really love in female lead characters. This book definitely gives you a glimpse of the toughness required to be a rancher in Wyoming, I definitely don't miss those winters! The suspense and danger (not to mention the tension between Casey & Kirby) keep the pages turning and even though it was easy to predict what was going to happen, it was still a very engaging read.
My Rating: I am really enjoying this series and really loved getting to know Casey more. I love the close knit family and open spaces. This is definitely a series I will keep following. I give it a rating of Four Paws!
