There are quite a few times when Maisie Yates pushes the
envelope on getting this couple to the point where theirs
is a healthy relationship. Both have issues with belonging,
trust and love. In WANT ME COWBOY Maisie Yates devotes her
talents to finding a path for these two adults. Not an easy
task to be certain and yet the ending is satisfying for
even the most pessimistic soul.
Relationships should start with friendship and Poppy
Sinclair and Isaiah Greyson have that along with a
fantastic working one. Poppy is Isaiah\'s right hand woman
and has been for the last ten years. Poppy is great at
organizing as well as being a trustworthy employee. Her
people skills are what make her indispensable for Isaiah.
Isaiah channels all his life both personal and business
through the logical paths of math. Yes -- math. If Isaiah
can get the predicament to work through an equation than he
feels it is valid and trustworthy.
Now it seems as if Isaiah is having doubts about his future
-- personal life. His siblings are settling in and very
happy. Isaiah\'s last relationship ended rather abruptly
leaving him resolute about not involving his heart in any
future ones. So it made sense -- logically -- that Isaiah
would be best served finding a future wife by advertising
for one. Poppy was of course called into action to find a
woman that fit a strange list of qualifications set by
Isaiah. One thing was painfully obvious to Poppy. She
wouldn\'t match any of them.
Poppy has been secretly in love with Isaiah all these
years. Although spending great amount of time together
there has never been a lapse of professionalism. In short
Poppy was on call for just about anything Isaiah needed.
She did a masterful job and enjoyed a successful career
earning enough for a much better life than she ever thought
Poppy has lots of personal baggage as a former foster
child. She could never develop a sense of belonging. Smart
and sassy but quite innocent Poppy was part of Isaiah\'s
life but in the periphery. And now her newest task was to
interview women who answer Isaiah\'s ad. There was
definitely a type. Tall, gorgeous and blonde. Poppy was
decided not any of those. Well she was smarter than most of
those she met with but with her mahogany skin and black
curly hair she would never pass for a dumb blonde.
Isaiah decides that Poppy might make the perfect wife for
him. After all they are great friends and work seamlessly
together. Now wouldn\'t that just make a fabulous couple?
Problem is the one thing Poppy yearns for more than
anything is for someone to love her. A relationship based
on finally belonging to someone. All that handing off in
foster care had left her with a myriad of emotional scars.
How could she settle for a marriage that offered trust,
friendship, family and security but with absolutely no hope
So in WANT ME COWBOY Maisie Yates creates a mixed race
couple that totally suit each other. Their racial
difference is barely noted in the storyline so I guess
Maisie Yates feels that isn\'t a consideration. The author
focuses on the ways these two characters are alike and
complement each other. Poppy is definitely the more lovable
character. Isaiah is a challenge. But when love is on the
table good sense can often take a back seat.
Her rancher boss is looking for the perfect wifeÖ
and she wants the job!
Poppy Sinclair kept her feelings for
Isaiah Grayson secret for a decade. When her
infuriatingly gorgeous Stetson-wearing boss enlists her
help in finding him a convenient wife, she threatens to
quit. Until Isaiah counters with an interesting proposal:
Why doesn't she marry him? Can she say yes to
sharing his life and his bed, but not his heart?
