They were supposed to remain strictly professional. But he can’t get enough of her fire…
Now that Shane Pickett’s horse trainer has retired, there are plenty of ranch hands knocking at his door to fill the available position. But one woman stands out above the rest, and it’s not just because she knows her way around a horse. She’s a gorgeous spitfire and Shane would be a fool to let her slip through his fingers just because of his damn pride.
Wynonna O’Neil is no stranger to creatures with bad tempers so she doesn’t bat an eye at Shane’s grumpiness. He can scowl and stomp around all he wants to. It was clear he had a soft spot for her and she was going to wear him down eventually.
When Shane and Wynonna butt heads, sparks fly, and the tension ramps up. Someone has to break. And Wynonna is dead set on melting Shane’s cold, cold heart.

Tangling with the Cowboy is a quick, sexy, fun romance in the Country Road Cowboys series. One very grumpy ranch owner needs a horse trainer when his long-time trainer finally retires. What Shane wants and what he gets might be two different things in his opinion. Wynonna was as bright and cheerful as Shane was grouchy, but there she was among the large group of cowboys and cowgirls wanting that position. The last thing Shane wanted was this bubbly, beautiful woman on his ranch… or so he told himself right before handing down a challenge he was certain she’d lose.
She didn’t. And Shane found himself with a new, female horse trainer… and one major, cheerful thorn in his side.
Tangling with the Cowboy was an entertaining story, a bit insta-lust, a bit insta-love but it worked for this story. Short, can’t say sweet because it’s very steamy, but also fun to watch one grumpy man fall for the cheerful woman he never saw coming at him. This story is part of a series, but I didn’t feel like I missed anything by stepping in at the second book. If you love sexy, grouchy cowboys finally meeting their perfect match then you’d have fun here.
