Sara McGregor had almost completed her tour of the west. She had one more stop in Wyoming then she could finally return home to normality and finish working on her book. However, one encounter with Cal Pearson has Sara questioning everything she thought she wanted from life. Cal is the most irritating, frustrating cowboy Sara has ever met; a look, a gesture or a sly remark has her blood boiling. Why she didn’t just turn around and head back to her cozy, comfortable life the first time Cal called her “Darlin’”, she’ll never know. The fine line between love and hate has never been tested so powerfully as anger and growing passion battle it out with results neither of them saw coming.

Sara’s Cowboy is a scorching, erotic tale of two people blindsided by passion, chemistry and love. Sara is a stubborn character who has grown complacent with her lot. I love how her ideas of who she is and where she is going is tested through interaction with her cowboy. Cal just loves to antagonize Sara and irritatingly knows just where and how to push to get the reaction he wants. Their relationship has just the right balance though, as neither character is perfect and neither has it all figured out at the start. They need each other to really be comfortable in their own skin and that created the fantastic sense that their coupling was meant to be, if only they could reign in their hormones. There was a rhythm to the writing that helped immerse me into Sara’s world and the flurry of excitement at the end left a satisfying afterglow.
