Retired U.S. Marine Captain Tanner Wilks returns home to his
Texas family ranch because of his father's heart attack. His
plan to take over the ranch and run it the way he ran his
men, precise and orderly. He will become the SEMPER FI
COWBOY. But a couple of obstacles are in his way, his father
doesn't want to slow down and then there is Julia Heller.
Julia is the veterinarian at the ranch but she is also
someone that Tanner feels an attraction to. Having spent one
very steamy night together, she has no plans to repeat that
night. It doesn't matter that he feels otherwise, she has
rules that she is going to keep. Is this Marine strong
enough to fight two people for what he wants? Can the vet
allow herself the chance to fall in love?
SEMPER FI COWBOY is a fun, sweet story with a good hit of
coming home, reunion feel. It is unusual that Tanner came
home as he and his father aren't close at all, but he feels
obligated to come home and help out. He runs into two
problems, the old man doesn't want him there and the woman
he is fast falling for has a rule -- don't mess with the
ranchers. Jules, as she is called, has to be strong as a
woman working with large animals and in a man's world. At
first, both Tanner and Jules bothered me, I didn't like them
much, but as I read on I saw a depth that led me to a
softening toward them. Jules seemed to know what to say to
help Tanner deal with his father and Tanner did stop being
quite so cocky, as he learned to fit back into civilian life.
If you are looking for a sexy retired Marine who fits tight
jeans nicely as a cowboy, a feisty veterinarian, a one-night
stand that he's going to have to work hard to repeat,
acceptance and love, then SEMPER FI COWBOY is exactly what
A Leatherneck by any other name can still kick ass, which is
just what retired United States Marine Corps Captain Tanner
Wilks plans to do when he returns to his Texas family ranch
to care for his ailing father. And nothing will stop him
from achieving his mission—not even a lithe, brown-eyed town
veterinarian who seems hell-bent on driving him wild.
Captain Tanner Wilks, honorably discharged from the U.S.
Marine Corps, returns home to find his father struggling
after his latest heart attack. Worse yet, Julia Heller—the
sexy new girl in town that he once spent a hot night with—is
the resident veterinarian who’s made a home for herself at
Round Top ranch, and doesn’t seem to be in a rush to repeat
their time together.
It falls on Tanner’s shoulders to take on the ranch and keep
an eye on his father before he falls victim to another heart
attack. But Julia doesn’t appreciate Tanner coming in or
pursuing her. Even if he’s hot as hell and can make her
quiver with just a look. Ousting her may give Tanner the
leverage he needs to corral his father, but first he has to
wrestle with his own heart.
