TEMPTED BY A COWBOY by Vicki Lewis Thompson tells the story
of how a relationship can be ruined when there are secrets.
Fletcher Grayson owner of the Rockin G ranch is a hard
working rancher that has poured his life savings and any
extra money he gets back into his ranch. His love of horses
had him venturing into buying a ranch and turning it into a
horse breeding facility. The ranch is not doing badly, but
it is a long way from operating in the black consistently.
Needless to say Fletcher has to watch every penny; he makes
sure that his horses and ranch hands eat before he does.
Astrid Lindberg is a large animal vet and a billionaire.
She grew up with a silver spoon in her mouth and did not
have to worry about paying for college, her parents
took care of that for her. Six months ago she
became the Vet for gorgeous rancher Fletcher "Fletch"
Grayson. The attraction and chemistry between the two of
them was instant. But Astrid's number one rule is that she
will not get involved with a client. She is a woman and on
top of that very petite, because of these two things she
has to work twice as hard to earn the respect and clients
as her male counterparts. She will not ruin the
reputation for which she has worked so hard for by dating a
Fletch called her late
Saturday night to let her know that Janis, his prized
horse, was about to foal and could she come to the
ranch. After hours of labor Janis
finally gave birth to Buddy Holly. The excitement of the
birth with both mother and colt doing well, the romance of
the rain, and the strong attraction to each other has
Fletch kissing Astrid senseless. Astrid decides it is time
to go home; Fletch follows her in his truck to make sure
she gets across the bridge ok. She is not paying attention
to what she is doing and does not realize until it is too
late that she should not have tried to cross the bridge.
The water is rushing up over the bridge, before she can try
and back up; she and her truck are washed off the bridge.
I am going to leave the review there. You will just have to
read TEMPTED BY A COWBOY to see what happens. I can tell
you that it is worth the read. The chemistry between Astrid
and Fletch burns up the pages. It may be a short book, but
is a well written story, just like everything that Ms.
Thompson writes. This is the 2nd book in her Perfect
series. This is a series that is worth the time to read and
TEMPTED BY A COWBOY is certainly worth the read.
The sisters of Gamma Delta Rho just can't agree whether
the perfect man is rich or rugged. But can a cowboy ever
prove he's worth his weight in gold?
Billionaire Astrid Lindberg may have grown up with a
silver spoon in her mouth, but she's determined to have a
career as a vet and she feels most at home in a barn
surrounded by her beloved horses. Though her parents expect
her to settle down with someone refined and rich, Astrid
can't keep her thoughts off of the handsome and hardworking
rancher Fletcher Grayson. Too bad he's one of her clients
and thus strictly off limits.
Then, Astrid is involved in an accident after helping
one of Fletcher's horses in the early morning hours, and
Fletch comes to her rescue. In the aftermath, the two find
their sizzling attraction outweighing common sense and
overriding their professional relationship. But Astrid is
keeping a secret that is a ticking time bomb with the power
to destroy their newfound passion...
