Masked Cowboy is a story of acceptance and love. Mary-Bet is a veterinarian looking for a new star when she comes to town to take over a vet practice. As a vet her practice of large animals includes the neighboring ranches and the Lakota tribe. In this area not all is what it seems. Jacob the ranch foreman is the masked cowboy due to an accident that destroyed his face. This story combines the mystery of the west, the beliefs of the Lakota people, and the hot romance between Jacob and Mar Beth.
It took me a little while to get into the Masked Cowboy. The characters are interesting, but I never really found the connection even though the sex scenes where hot. I found that the story jumped around a lot. It had some great elements, but the story never grabbed my attention. We discovered the reason behind the mask, but it’s at the end of the story. Readers do get a happy ending, but it’s kind of anticlimactic. Readers who enjoy western style romance might want to give this book a try. It just wasn’t one that hooked me.
He hides from the world…but he can’t hide from her.
Moving her veterinary practice out west is a chance for Mary-Beth to start over. But her resolve to learn to hold her tongue goes out the window when she meets Jacob, a Lakota cowboy who says next to nothing—especially about the black leather mask covering half his face.
Sometimes he seems to be almost flirting. Other times, it’s as if he’s angry she exists. But there’s no mistaking the heat that flares between them.
Jacob still isn’t sure who—or what—carved up his face and killed his best friend three years ago. All he knows is the thing was after a child he now hides with his silence. A medicine woman’s granddaughter he would die to protect.
Outspoken, sexy Mary Beth reminds him of how lonely his life has become. But he can’t forget how much he stands to lose if any distraction allows a monster to rise again and destroy the last hope of his people.
Warning: This book contains a masked cowboy with a lot to hide, a woman who shoots her mouth off at all the wrong times, and the wanton destruction of a certain pair of panties during explosive sex.
