Review: That Cowboy of Mine by Donna Grant
That Cowboy of Mine
Or a lover?
Waking up on a stranger’s property with a shotgun in his face is not Cal Bennett’s idea of a good time. Never mind that the woman on the other end of the barrel is one of the most fiercely beautiful women he has ever seen. Things get more interesting when he finds himself shielding her from flying bullets. It’s clear that this smart, savvy woman could use a hand and he is all too happy to lend any part of his body she requires. His proposal: pose as lovers until they find out who is after her ranch. As the danger rises and secrets are revealed, the passion explodes between them. There is no turning back.
Was it a case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time or being in the right place at just the right time? That Cowboy of Mine starts with one of those moments and keeps on edge until the end.
Dillon has inherited her late aunt’s ranch and is bound and determined to keep it up and running. Even with the mishaps that are happening that no one can seem to explain. When a stranger turns up on her land, her prized horse is missing and someone fires shots at her, things just got way more serious than a mishap.
Cal turns up on Dillon’s land after a night of hard-core drinking with no knowledge of how he got there. To be awakened by her holding a shotgun aimed at him, then moments later saving that same woman from being shot herself raises questions. Cal is not only determined to prove that he had nothing to do with the disappearance of her horse but yet protect her and figure out who is threatening her life.
Donna Grant delivers an action packed, engaging and suspenseful read with That Cowboy of Mine. I really liked the story. The cowboy who has come to the realization that his rodeo days are over and the woman bound and determined to keep her ranch running. This is a slow burn romance. They definitely have chemistry and when Dillon and Cal allow themselves to connect they are explosive. I love the determination, the suspense kept me thinking and that slow burn romance kept me rooting for both of them. Donna Grant gives us another fantastic standalone cowboy read.
