Each of the three racy novellas in this fun romance anthology feature lone wolf heroes all emotionally scarred former military service members and their literal wolf companions in rugged ranch country. In Palmer's "Colorado Cowboy," wildlife rehabilitator and one-armed Iraq vet Butch Matthews rescues Esther Marist from her mother's murderous ex-boyfriend and lusty sparks soon fly between the pair. Beth Baker, the ex-wife of an abusive criminal, now raising two teenage boys on her own, is alerted that her tenant, grumpy former SEAL Conner O'Neil, has suffered an accident by Conner's pet wolf in Pearce's "The Wolf on Her Doorstep." While overseeing his recovery, Beth, who's sick of "always doing the right thing," finds the "wrong" thing downright irresistible. Zanetti's "Rescue: Cowboy Style" finds sweet heroine Hallie fleeing vindictive crooks. Former mercenary Trent Logan offers her a job, finds she can cook, and, with help from his beloved wolf and colorful pals, lands the baddies in jail and Hallie in his marriage bed. These passionate tales will have romance fans hooked. \n
RESCUE: COWBOY STYLE by Rebecca Zanetti
My review covers RESCUE: COWBOY STYLE by Rebecca Zanetti
REVIEW: RESCUE: COWBOY STYLE by Rebecca Zanetti is a contemporary, adult, romantic suspense novella found in the multi-authored Lone Wolf anthology. This is cowboy/rancher thirty-two year old Trent Logan, and twenty-four year old, accountant Hallie Rose’s story line.
Told from dual third person perspectives (Trent and Hallie) RESCUE: COWBOY STYLE follows twenty-four year old accountant Hallie Rose in the aftermath of an accident on her way through Wyoming cattle country but Hallie never expected to walk into a ranch house, meeting cowboy Trent Logan, a man who stirs something deep within our story line heroine.
Trent Logan suspects Hallie Rose is on the run but our heroine refuses to reveal the truth about her past. With his ‘brothers in arms’ Trent slowly begins to break down our heroine’s walls but Trent and his fellow co-op cowboys are keeping secrets of their own, secrets that are dark and dangerous. When Hallie’s past starts closing in , Trent and his ‘brothers’ begin an investigation of their own discovering the truth behind the threats against Hallie Rose. What ensues is the quick building romance and relationship between Hallie and Trent, and the potential fall-out as Hallie’s past is determined to take down our story line heroine.
The relationship between Hallie and Trent is quick to develop. Trent believes Hallie is his very own happily ever after, the first of his ‘brothers’ to find some peace and happiness after years battling the demons from their past. There are no $ex scenes; the sexual attraction is palpable.
There is a large ensemble cast of secondary and supporting characters. We are introduced to Trent’s ‘brothers in arms’ alluding to several more story lines and a potential new series.
RESCUE: COWBOY STYLE is a fast paced, intriguing and energetic story line. The premise is intriguing and entertaining; the romance is sweet and seductive; the characters are engaging, charismatic and numerous.
