My plan is to start over without a man. But car woes and a cowboy are making it difficult.
I don't need a man. And I definitely don't need his money. After spending twenty-five years as a trophy wife, I'm single again and on my own. Well, not completely alone. I have my cat.
My fresh start isn't going well. Car trouble leaves me stranded in the Texas Hill Country, but a helpful stranger with wicked blue eyes and well-worn cowboy boots shows up. Too bad he's a man. I've sworn off men.
My mama taught me better than to leave a stranger on the side of the road . . . even if she is toting around an exotic cat and has fiery red hair and a temper to match. But like a kid with matches, I'm drawn to her in spite of the risk.
Or maybe a little risk is exactly what my settled bachelor life needs.
One problem: she hates men. And since I am one, trying to win her over might be harder than taming a wild stallion. But what's the worst that can happen? Embarrassment? A broken heart? Death?
She might be worth it.

The perfect mix of humor and engaging dialogue had me hooked from the beginning. I loved this story with its witty dialogue and engaging banter. The characters felt fresh and very interesting. It was a fantastic story and I look forward to reading more books from this author.

A great read
I loved this book. I loved the characters. I loved the story. I really like reading a story about ‘mature’ characters. The experiences they’ve already endured, give them a unique view of the world and current circumstances, leading to a much richer storytelling experience. Beau and Lilith both have had some bad experiences with the opposite sex, but I like how neither are bitter, just a bit jaded. This comes out as snarky banter, which was very entertaining in this book, and really added to the romantic tension that is building between these two. I liked how Lilith, although a “damsel in distress” due to car trouble (times 5), didn’t play the weak woman, but stood up for herself and her needs. She was a consistently strong woman throughout the book, having a good brain and using it. Beau was a good hero, rescuing our heroine and providing shelter, but he didn’t try to take over her life, just helped her along her way. The story moved along nicely and the plot and characters grew with it to a lovely finish. A great read. I’m really looking forward to more in this series. I received a complimentary copy of this book. This is my freely given, honest review.
