Professional photographer, Naomi Pierce, returned to her hometown to visit her mom and best friend, Whitney. Naomi had no idea that this particular visit would have her fearing for her life, anxious about her friend, and falling in love with a handsome cowboy.
Whitney was the Texas Rodeo Queen, and Naomi couldn’t wait to capture her on film. However, while Naomi was at the rodeo, someone tried to steal her camera. Brice Harper wrestled the man to the ground but was unable to identify him, before the man took off. Naomi’s friend, Whitney, wasn’t acting like her usual self. She was jumpy and tense and definitely safeguarding a secret. When accidents started to happen, Naomi and the Harper brothers wanted answers. Whitney confessed that cruel men with inflated egos were abusing girls. Brice and Caleb Harper were determined to bring the scumbags down.
Cowboy heroes, Brice and Caleb Harper, were the type of guys that girls loved to have by their side. Naomi, however, was only interested in one cowboy. The one who stole her heart. Cowboy, Cross My Heart is an enjoyable, western romance novel.
