It’s hard to get over certain personal life events, especially about trust. COUNTING ON A COWBOY is a story about learning how to trust again, and be open to the possibility of love. When you’ve fought a valiant battle to start over perhaps it just isn’t in it to let yourself become vulnerable. Two folks in COUNTING ON A COWBOY feel as if they have learned what it is like to be on the receiving end of a relationship gone bad.
Lyric had become the target of her husband’s anger and disappointment. As many battered women do, Lyric kept quiet, embarrassment and shame rules her behavior. Until she was physically hurt Lyric managed to stay silent. With the help of her mother and sister, she was able to walk away from her husband, get a divorce and start over in her hometown.
No charges were filed, and Lyric prized her freedom.
Thatch walked from a relationship that went south when his brother and his fiancé became a couple. Seemed Thatch had not left enough time to spend with his girl. Life as a SEAL kept him away. But even though he realized that his attentiveness was lacking, he just couldn't forgive his brother’s role in the breakup.
Thatch is going to experience an abundance of nos in his dealings with Lyric. There’s always the danger of the straw that broke the camel's back. So in COUNTING ON A COWBOY Sara Richardson deftly keeps her characters in character. She never has them doing something out of character and at times that can be exasperating. But the final product remains true. The burning question is can Lyric and Thatch circle each other long enough for them to finally connect? Only time will tell.
Fans of Sara Richardson are going to enjoy this adventure – and it is an adventure. There’s no rush to find an appropriate end for the leading characters in COUNTING ON A COWBOY. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the show. Lyric and Thatch are amazing characters, and each is given ample time to develop into the people that Sara Richardson envisioned. Dialog is crisp and delightful. COUNTING ON A COWBOY is an absolute joy to read from one of my go-to authors.

In this sizzling, sassy western romance, she’s been burned by too many cowboys—but can this rodeo rider convince her he’s worth the risk?

Retired SEAL Thatch Hearst never thought he’d put down roots, but four years in Star Valley as a bronc rider has him calling the town home. All he needs now is to earn some real money by competing in the big leagues. He’ll have his chance with the town’s upcoming rodeo days, but first he needs to improve his scores. Running out of time—and ideas—Thatch enlists the help of a local yoga instructor, hoping to gain an extra edge.

Lyric Valenza has worked with difficult clients, but this ruggedly handsome cowboy might just be her biggest challenge. Marrying a cowboy was the biggest mistake of her life, and after her divorce, she vowed she’d never again need a man. Only the more time she spends with Thatch, the more she realizes there’s a difference between needing and wanting someone—and this cowboy may just be the one person she doesn’t want to be without.
