WIND RIVER VALLEY

First in a new series by the author of Night Hawk and Out Rider

Still waters run deep . . .

From the moment  Roan Taggart picked up the pretty redhead at the Jackson Hole airport, his training and experience told him she was spooked. She’s left New York City to visit the Wind River Ranch, where Roan is a wrangler, and just as he can pick up a horse’s mood, he can feel the tension coming off her body.  And that vulnerability is triggering all his protective instincts...

Shiloh Gallagher likes the gray-eyed cowboy’s dry humor—and the Special Forces background that lends him a stoic, powerful presence. But she’s been scarred by trauma and her mother’s murder . . . and knows a strong man can be dangerous. She came to wide-open Wyoming to flee a threat that’s left her unable to write her novels. Now, as she rides horses with Roan and helps him build an isolated cabin, she’s slowly letting down her guard. But danger has followed her west, and they won’t have a future together unless they defeat a killer from her past…
 

This book is S-L-O-W and I mean slow even a snail is quicker. I was quite bored really.
It’s been a long time since I’ve read a cowboy romance and well it was alright I guess. Actually it is bloody awful.

I find it hard to explain the beginning was good, the heroine Shiloh has a stalker so she goes out West to visit an old friend of her mothers. Shiloh has experienced some truly awful at such a young age but she still has a positive outlook on life and is a best-selling author. She has some self-confidence issues.

Roan Taggert former black-ops turned wrangler is the perfect Hero, he is patient, protective, kind and understanding and well men have to have some dipshit moments otherwise it is mediocre. Not a lot happened really. They get to know one another, they talk about having a relationship there is a strong and constant build up between them but that also kind of took all of the excitement out of the plot.

It was listed on numerous accounts that she is a write and that is why she is curious which drove me bonkers, yeah WE GET IT YOU ARE A WRITER. I knew who the stalker was and I hate it when that happens although the suspenseful moments were written rather well. But in some ways it is predictable.

Please note that this is my personal opinion and that in no way does it affect the overall opinions of this book. This book and author just isn’t for me.
