Great Story and Characters
My Favorite Cowboy - Donna Grant

Audrey Martinez is a veterinarian who has devoted her whole life to the care and protection of horses—even if doing so leaves her little time for meeting a man. Who would have thought that a strange case of criminal horseplay would lead her to falling deeply, wildly in love? If only the man who makes her heart race faster than a wild mustang would let his guard down, that is. . .

Caleb Harper is no ordinary cowboy. Sure, he wears his hat, boots, and jeans like a second skin, and displays an easygoing charm that comes from years of working on the ranch. But with his military background, and Army buddies at his side, he is tried-and-true Texas tough. Audrey knows she can trust a man like Caleb to help her save horses. But can Caleb trust himself to resist his attraction to Audrey—or will the sparks of their desire end up getting them burned?

This is finally the story of the third Harper sibling. He meets his match in Audrey. I really liked Audrey a lot and thought she was a great match for Caleb. She was able to help him start healing in the way he needed. My only issue was the repeated emphasis on how often Caleb (and even Audrey a couple of times) got around. I really don’t like it it when author’s do this. Beyond that, I highly recommend for fans of this genre.

ARC REVIEW My Favorite Cowboy by Donna Grant


My Favorite Cowboy (Heart of Texas Book 3)Heart of Texas #3, this can be read as a standalone, but honestly the whole series so far is awesome. The youngest Harper boy Caleb, who swore he'd never fall in love and planned to be alone all his life, meet his match. Audrey Martinez dedicated herself to her work and it shows she is one of the best equine vets in the county, he love life not as important to her as saving and taking care of horses. Both Caleb and Audrey are the love 'em and leave them type but as soon as they met each other they are both not so sure they want to leave the other. But first they have a mystery to solve.

Someone poisoned four horses at the auction house. Audrey was called in as a favor to look after the horses. Caleb and Brice just happened to be at the right place at the right time to help. Using their military background and the help of Clayton, Jace and Cooper they stake out the area incase the person responsible comes back to attempt to poison more horses. Audrey stays up with the horses keeping tabs on them. Sure enough the culprits come back but they let a bunch of horses lose to avoid capture. It seems one of the things they are trying to do is stop Audrey from identifying the poison they smash up her lab, and even blow up a dead horse to prevent her from doing so. Caleb and his brothers are going to protect Audrey and her sister until they find out who is behind the whole thing and who they are out to ruin.

Caleb and Audrey pretty much have insta-lust. No matter how deep they get or how quickly they fell in love they are both hesitant to admit anything because they both have their issues they need to sort out. Audrey was always so focused on her career she never really made time for anyone else but her sister, and when her mother died and she watched how her father became so emotionally vacant a part of her walled up her heart to protect herself from the same. Abby and Brice always thought that their mother abandoning them didn't effect Caleb that much because he was so young but Caleb was traumatized the worst. Caleb never wanted to trust someone enough to give them his heart for fear of his love not being enough to keep them so he refused to let himself fall in love. Audrey and Caleb spent so much time walking away from people they ended up walking straight toward each other, but will they both be brave enough to love each other.

Overall, I loved this. I loved the emotional depth for both Caleb and Audrey it made them seem very real to me. I really loved the mystery and the suspense it made for a very exciting read. Donna Grant is awesome at what she does I love this series and I am not ready for it to end I can't wait for Jace and Cooper to get their own HEAs.

Archaeology, warlords, and chemistry
Tinderbox - Rachel Grant

“There’s a fine line between evil and desperation. One easily leads to the other."

 

Holy hell was this fascinating, entertaining, hot at times, and plain absorbing. I didn't really take notes to write a review but want to alert anyone looking for a rom suspense that's high on the suspense, this is an absolute go to. 

 

Quickly, our heroine is an archaeologist sent to Djibouti to survey land that wants to be developed by both China and U.S. There is a butt load of politics involved with secondary characters trying to maneuver to place them or their country in power. It is, as the title suggests, a tinderbox situation. Morgan meets a Special Forces soldier who she ends up having mad chemistry with and they battle it along with the elements of the country. 

 

I have to be honest, the romance was a pretty far second to the overall suspense, political, anthropology, and people of Djibouti setting the author magnificently created. Morgan and Pax had chemistry but his stop and go, feet dragging on not wanting to be together came off even more slow paced in comparison to the suspense of shady country dealings, double agents, and people fighting for survival. I also thought the issues Morgan had with her Dad were, eh; made her come off still kind of childish and wrapped very easily up to make her whole issues even more, eh.

 

Loved this line about the hero: She’d pulled back her blonde hair in a neat French braid, the kind his little sister made him learn how to do when she was eight because she couldn’t braid behind her head herself.

 

He learned to French braid his little sisters hair! You know how I thirst for building blocks of characters, this was a majorly sweet one that gives a great insight into the hero.

 

There really was no end to fascinating and intriguing tidbits in this story:  She picked up a triangular rock and jogged back to his side to press it in his hand. She wrapped his fingers around the warm stone. “You’re holding in your hand a tool that was made by either Homo ergaster or Homo habilis around one-point-five-million years ago.”

 

I spent hours at the computer intermittently looking up new anthropological finds and the current situation in Djibouti. Personally, I felt like the author did an amazing job giving us enough solid facts weaved in with some plausible fiction, without technically overloading or stunting with "look at all the research I did!" facts, to create one heck of an interesting story. 

 

Like I said, the romance was more three stars for me as I liked the couple's banter but they got pretty lusty right away (thoughts more than actions in beginning). I'm also nerdy enough though, that the author's fascinating inclusion of threads, facts, and plausible sounding anthropology, archaeology, world geography, military, and political talk, the main couple could have been anyone. 

 

She caught his smug grin. She rolled her eyes and hoped he didn’t notice her heart was still in overdrive. “Not a bad bit of rescuing,” she said as nonchalantly as she could muster.

He laughed. “Sometimes I even amaze myself.” It was her turn to laugh. A guy who could quote Han Solo might just be her catnip.

 

This was my catnip. If looking for some really interesting, intriguing, heartbreaking, make you feel incredibly lucky where you were born, action, and some sexy time romantic suspense, you will really want to read this. I'm delighted there are more books to discover in this series.
