Fresh Fiction Review

Cowboy's Texas Rescue

Cornelison's book is about following a life path that wasn't necessarily something planned or necessarily dreamed about or planned. Life has a way of throwing a curve ball. People choose which road to take. This is a lovely tale about reexamining choices.

Not an auspicious beginning for any relationship -- not that Chelsea Harris actually thought there was any real chance this hunky cowboy would even look at her twice. Except they had luckily escaped freezing to death in the trunk of her car after she had been carjacked by an armed escaped convict.

Unfortunately the man who had stopped so innocently to help a stalled car in this major snow storm wound up right next to her in the trunk.

After being summarily dumped by her boyfriend Chelsea's self esteem is at an all time low. Can you imagine her chagrin meeting Jake Connelly in her rather revealing undies with the newly gained extra pounds in full view. Sure she had bigger fish to fry -- after all they face freezing to death in her car unless they managed to get out and somehow find shelter and warmth from the storm.

They also had no means to call for help, no gun for protection and no real protective clothing -- the convict had basically left them to freeze to death -- can't sugar coat that. But they were both smart and resourceful. Jake was learning quite a lot about this beautiful woman who kept surprising him with her resiliency. No matter how dire their conditions were she continued to show how honestly caring she was for man or beast. Just what kind of loser was she dating that would be so blatantly uncaring in his abrupt handling of this amazing woman. If Jake were looking for a real relationship Chelsea would fit the bill. But he was a realist -- his life was that of a wandering warrior trained to ferret out the bad guys. Not good marriage material.

And Chelsea wasn't a one night stand fling kind of woman. So no matter how attracted they were -- they had to keep their sights on surviving this storm and hopefully not confront that convict again. Jake needed to get home to see his ailing father and Chelsea was supposed to house sit at her parents. Neither planned on this unexpected detour.

Even though this TEXAS COWBOY'S RESCUE is froth with danger you can't overlook the wonderful feeling of joy and love infused in practically every page. Cornelison has written a page turner that is truly enjoyable from beginning to end. Just when you think the tale has come to an acceptable conclusion the author throws still another wrench into the works and the adventure continues. Anyone who loves cowboys will love the special ops agent in a black cowboy hat who is the hero in Cornelison's latest work. But even the toughest cowboys need a special damsel to save -- and this is a wonderful story about what happens when that damsel has the grit to match.

Learn more about Cowboy's Texas Rescue


Taking out bad guys is in Jake Connelly's DNA as much as strength, fearlessness and Greek-god good looks. So is rescuing women like Chelsea Harris, who's kidnapped by a brutal escaped convict. What isn't in the cowboy hunk's DNA, Chelsea fears, is an interest in relationships—especially with a jilted size-fourteen plain Jane like herself.

With the killer on the loose and a Texas-size blizzard raging, Jake and Chelsea take refuge in an icy farmhouse. Sudden sparks between them turn on plenty of heat! But Jake has sworn to put his black ops career before distracting emotions. He needs to stay focused to stop the convict's reign of terror…and protect Chelsea from the danger of falling for him….
