New York Times bestselling author Donna Grant takes you deep inside the Texas rodeo scene, where danger and desire ride side by side. . .

Naomi Pierce isn't the type to let a cowboy sweep her off feet. It's not her first rodeo, after all. But when she returns to her Texas hometown, she can't help but be swept up again in the rough-and-tumble world of hard-riding, bronco-busting good-ol'-boys she loved as a girl. She might be here to photograph her Rodeo Queen best friend. But it's one fine-looking cowboy who really captures her eye...

Brice Harper is all man, all muscle, and all heart. From the moment he rides into the stadium, he can't help but notice the beautiful stranger with a camera watching him fromthe stands. It doesn't take a zoom lens to see the sparks of instant attraction. But things really heat up when he meets Naomi up-close--and he discovers that someone is stalking her friend. Brice wouldn't be any kind ofcowboy if he didn't offer to help the ladies out. But can the rough rider keep this spirited shutterbug out of danger--without risking his heart?

From the very first chapter of Cowboy, Cross My Heart, you cannot help but like Naomi and Brice and the journey they go through to not only fight for justice, but also fall in love.

Naomi is not 100% happy with her life in DC, but comes home to Baxter County (for work and a break) to watch her best friend Whitney compete for Miss Rodeo Texas crown, but when Naomi is attacked for unknowingly taking a photo of one of the men abusing the contestants, she is relieved that Brice Harper comes to her rescue, but unfortunately it puts him and his family in to the attackers path! Together with Brice's family, Naomi and Brice are determined to catch the perpetrators, while trying to keep everyone safe.

This is the second book I have ever read that was written by Donna Grant and I have to say that I really enjoy her writing! Her plots are well-thought-out and are practical in there execution. I'm also totally ashamed to say that I didn’t read book 1 of this series, but it didn’t matter, as it can be totally read as a stand-alone, but believe me, that book is in my future! Well, it is an excuse to read Cowboy, Cross My Heart again!

Cowboy, Cross My Heart is a fast pace Western romantic suspense that keeps you on your toes, grips your heart and soul and by the end of the book, you just begin it again! That is until the next book in the series is out.


I give Cowboy, Cross My Heart 5 stars!
