Clay Russell will do anything he is asked for including looking over a friend of his sister-in-laws. The thing is that this is something new for him. He used to be a National Bull Rider never settling in one place. He's unsure what to do for one look at Rusty Blackhawk and he's head over heels smitten. The more he is with her makes him rethink his bachelor life. Nobody told him that Rusty was a spitfire and the most beautiful sexiest person he has ever seen. Someone wants her land and will not stop until she's either dead or the land is theirs. This is something new for Clay to be at the center of something that could hurt a woman, especially his woman. Can he be there for Rusty when she will need him most?
Rusty Blackhawk is a woman who needs no man to protect her. However, a man like Clay is one she will reconsider. She vowed that she would never let anyone harm her or those she love. Meeting Clay while she was in the nude was a shock to her life. Knowing that he knows about her witch powers is something she didn't think he would take calmly. All her life she has been afraid of what a man she comes to love will think of her. Knowing that Clay still loves her after finding out about her powers might give her the strength she needs to stop the people that want her dead.
Again wow for this Hot in the Saddle series. I thought Chase's story was hot but move over for reading about his brother, Clay. The scenes between are steamy with his sexy body and her attempt to deny the attraction. Just looking at him on the cover will make you swoon. Yes swoon for this is one cowboy that knows how to treat his women. The paranormal effect to it was awesome to. Seeing Rusty use her gift for good is something worth reading. Awesome job.
Clay Russell had plans, Big plans. First he was going to win the Nationals in bull-riding, then he was going to start his own spread and breed horses. But his family had other plans. They roped him into leaving Arizona and taking on the job of getting a struggling ranch in North Carolina back on its feet.
He didn’t expect it to be something beyond his ability. He also didn’t expect Rusty Blackhawk to be a woman. Or a witch.
Rusty had no choice but to take the Russell’s offer and partner up with them. She had to hang onto her ranch and this was the only way. She wasn’t expecting to like Clay Russell. She sure wasn’t expecting to want him.
Neither of them expected the passion that would explode between them, or the danger that would threaten their lives. They were both in for surprises.
