The Trouble with Cowboys?--they leave. This is Annie Wilkerson’s belief, and she is determined not to fall for one. The only problem is, a cowboy named Dylan, is slowly working his way into her heart.
Annie Wilkerson, carries a lot on her shoulders. She and her sister were abandoned by their father when they were young, and after their mother passes away, their grandfather takes care of them.
Now it is just Annie, her sister Sierra, and Sierra's son Ryder.
In order to keep their heads above water, Annie works two jobs. One is as a horse trainer, the other as a columnist for a magazine. She had been writing about horse care, but the readership was dropping. As a result, her supervisor decided that she should try her hand at a lovelorn column.
Annie doesn't feel that she is qualified to help the people seeking answers. So she strikes up a deal with Dylan Taylor, she'll work with his horse, Braveheart, as he adjusts to going blind, and he'll help her with writing her new column. Simple enough, right? Well...not so much.
The Trouble with Cowboys by Denise Hunter is the first book I have read in this series (and this author). I wondered if not reading the first two books would be a hindrance in enjoying the story. It wasn’t. I highly recommend this author, she writes in a way that sets vivid scenes, create believable characters, and draws the reader into the story. I look forward to reading more of her books.
About the Book:
Only one pair of boots—and the cowboy wearing them—can get Annie out of the mess she’s in.
Annie Wilkerson is Moose Creek’s premiere horse trainer and equine columnist for Montana Living. Money is tight as she tries to put her kid-sister through college and provide for her young nephew. When Annie’s column is cancelled, she’s given first shot at a new lovelorn column—and she can’t afford to turn it down. Only problem is . . . Annie’s never been in love.
Always resourceful, she reluctantly strikes a deal with the town’s smooth-talking ladies’ man Dylan Taylor: She’ll work with his ailing horse, Braveheart, if he’ll help her answer the reader letters.
Working closely with Dylan is harder than Annie imagined, and she quickly realizes she may have misjudged him. But her unwavering conviction that cowboys are nothing but trouble has kept her heart safe for years. And she can’t risk getting hurt now.
The more Annie tries to control things, the more they fall apart. Her feelings are spinning out of control, and her sister’s antics are making life increasingly more difficult. Annie knows she needs to turn the reins over to God, but surrender has never come easily.
When Dylan reveals his feelings for her, Annie doesn’t know what to trust—her head or her heart. The trouble with this cowboy is that he might just be exactly what she needs.
Denise lives in Indiana with her husband Kevin and their three sons. In 1996, Denise began her first book, a Christian romance novel, writing while her children napped. Two years later it was published, and she’s been writing ever since. Her books often contain a strong romantic element, and her husband Kevin says he provides all her romantic material, but Denise insists a good imagination helps too!
