Cowboy Christmas Guardian is a fantastic start to a new series about the Thorn brothers. It is packed with danger and situations that sometimes took my breath away! And the romance is sweetly woven throughout the story, building naturally.
The author did a good job of showing the emotions that both Barrett and Shelby deal with regarding forgiveness. Both of these characters have been through some terrible situations, resulting in hearts that are hurting. Their journey to a new life, possibly together, depends on their ability to overcome the bitterness that unforgiveness can foster. I am really looking forward to book two in this series.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
UNDER THE RANCHER’S PROTECTION
Someone is dead set on stopping Shelby Arroyo from doing her job: assessing mineral rights in a mine in gold country. But after rancher Barrett Thorn rescues her from an attack, the handsome widowed cowboy seems to feel responsible for her. That is, until he discovers she’s from the family that he’ll never forgive for his wife’s death. As the threats against Shelby escalate, cowboy honor and an unexpected attraction keep Barrett by her side, even at his own risk. And since Shelby won’t back down, Barrett must protect the brave, loyal woman he has no business falling for…a woman someone wants to kill by Christmas.
