A woman on the run must trust her family’s sworn enemy in this thrilling tale by one of the best in cowboy romance.
The cowboy she can’t have . . . is the one she can’t resist.
Annie Dempsey has two rules for her new life in Devil’s Door, Wyoming: no romance and no drama. Fresh off a bad breakup, she’s already avoiding love. And as long as she steers clear of the Merrick clan—her family’s sworn enemies—avoiding drama won’t be a problem. But when a charming stranger steps in to protect Annie from a sudden threat, both her rules fly out the door. Because Annie’s mystery hero . . . is a Merrick.
Jonah Merrick won’t allow anyone—even a Dempsey—to be harmed on his watch. It doesn’t hurt that sweet, gorgeous Annie makes his heart beat like never before. Against his family’s objections, Jonah insists Annie hide out with him at his ranch while they try to outwit a dangerous pursuer. But as the days turn into weeks, Jonah realizes he’ll stop anyone who tries to harm Annie . . . or the loving future they’re building together.
Meant to Be My Cowboy by R.C. Ryan is an engaging romantic suspense/contemporary romance. I loved each of the cowboys and their family. The small characters only added to the story. A young cowboy who is as good at ranching as he is at writing suspense novels. Jonah is a swoon worthy cowboy. It was hard not to like him as hero. The heroine was a bit more rough edged than the cowboy. They both complimented each other. R.C. Ryan included plenty of action, humor, and romance in this stunning page tuner! I cannot wait to what she writes next.
Annie is in a position where she is being targeted for a false crime. The bad guys have set her up for failure. In fact, they want her to take the fall. Annie trusted her gut. She left before they could do physical harm to her. Only Annie can only run to some many places. Once the bad guys send a guy to threaten her, Annie’s only option is to trust her cowboy. A cowboy who has the hots for her. Jonah does not know what hit him. But he definitely wanted Annie and nothing will keep him nor his family from protecting her on their ranch. The family has connections that they use to help Annie fight the bad guys. Until then, Annie and Jonah are becoming quite an item.
Overall, I loved how big of knit Jonah’s family was. There was humor, a fierce protective side, and a playful yet serious edge to them all. Annie’s uncle kept me guessing. I was not sure if he would have sided with his niece or neglected her when she needed him most. This novel proved to be superb read. I cannot recommend it enough.
