ONE NIGHT WITH A COWBOY is a nice continuation of the SILVERADO LAKE series. (Though this can be read as a standalone.) We’re reunited with characters we’ve met before in this small town filled with caring people, and there’s plenty of drama, family, and romance that kept me turning the pages far into the night!
Wes is part of the rodeo circuit, working as a rodeo cowboy. He distracts the bulls away from the bull riders once they are finished riding. Years ago, he ran away from his small town and the family ranch. His father died, and he blames himself for his death, thinking his family blames him as well. He comes to visit his sister and stays to run the charity retreat for veterans and their families. He doesn’t expect to be attracted to his sister’s best friend, Thea, who’s there from Texas with her two children. His life is about to change in more ways than one!
Wes’s connections with his siblings are filled with strife, though they love each other. As he forms a stronger bond with them and really listens to what they have to say, he learns more about his family and himself. His older brother realizes he needs to make changes in his life as well, and the two of them have in-depth conversations. Thea’s children are pulling at Wes’s heartstrings, but so is their mother. Will something come of it or will they deny the attraction?
ONE NIGHT WITH A COWBOY has terrific pacing, a nice plot, and multiple storylines kept clear by the author’s careful prose. The many heartwarming scenes in this story left me wanting more.
Ms. Richardson is fast becoming a go-to author for me. I love her descriptions and how she gets so much out of her characters. I have more of her books on my TBR pile and look forward to reading all of them.
