In HIS KIND OF COWGIRL, Karen Rock takes on the bull
market. Well we're literally talking about bulls here.
Karen Rock did some amazing research to create a world few
know anything about. Sure most of us have
seen a rodeo, perhaps at a fair or on television. But
Karen Rock takes us behind the scenes, and it is
fascinating. I truly can't believe how she opened my eyes
to a whole new experience. HIS KIND OF COWGIRL is a
sensational western romance with a new twist. One that is
totally captivating and exceedingly entertaining.
It's an old story—once burnt twice shy. Claire is
starting to consider herself a survivor. She survived her
breaking when Tanner, the man she
loved, walked seemingly so easily out of her life.
Pregnant and deserted—that's how Claire felt even if
realistically she had to admit Tanner was unaware of
her condition. He left to go back to his real love,
rodeo life and riding bulls. And that's all Claire
When her close friend Kevin picked up the slack and void
left by Tanner's absence, Claire felt lucky and blessed
and ultimately fell in love with her new husband. Kevin
was a prince in a manner of speaking. Claire had always
held part of his heart and wouldn't hesitate claiming
this woman he loved and the baby she carried.
Both Claire and Kevin looked forward to the day when his
military obligation was over and the three of them could
be together as a family. But plans have a way of getting
as does life.
Now widowed, Claire and Jonathan are back at her
father's ranch. Her father's health is in question,
from stress brought on by financial worries.
Claire sees the only solution as selling the family ranch,
all debts, and relocating her father to
someplace appropriate for his age especially with his
But her father has other ideas, which include asking
Tanner to help run the ranch and hopefully come up with
ideas to save it. Problem is he neglected to tell
The bulls raised on the family ranch were not the
only stubborn varmints around. Between Martin, Claire, and
Tanner it's hard to figure out who is the most stubborn.
It may not be a rodeo event, but there is definitely
a big prize at stake.
As a huge western romance fan it's no wonder I was
attracted to this newest story by Karen Rock. HIS KIND OF
COWGIRL is quite succinctly my kind of book. Karen Rock
is a very versatile author whose list of books covers a
wide range of topics and scenarios. I've had the pleasure
of reading prior books by this writer and look forward to
Would he still love her…if he knew?
Tanner Hayes smashed Claire's life to pieces when he chose
the rodeo over
her ten years ago. And now he'd wrecked her truck!
Fantastic. She'd lost
her husband, the family ranch was mired in debt, her father
recuperating from a stroke and her son was being bullied.
Why not throw a
reckless bull rider into the mix?
All she'd wanted was a safe, stable life. But with Tanner
back in town—
and staying on her ranch—nothing was safe, or under
control. Not the
feelings she'd fought so hard to forget. Not the son she
to protect. And certainly not her long-held secret…
