For as long as Samantha can remember, Hunter—a man as strong as steel, with a heart of gold—has been her hero. It came as no surprise to Samantha when she found out that the ranch-hardened cowboy who always protected her from bullies went on to become the town’s sheriff. What does surprise her is how incredibly hot he still is. And how much she still wants him…

And, lo and behold, Hunter still has feelings for Samantha. The long-smoldering heat of their innocent flirtation has grown into a full-raging fire. But when tragedy strikes, and their small-town community is shattered, Hunter vows to do everything he can to keep his childhood sweetheart safe. But can Samantha trust that Hunter has her best interests at heart…and that, after all these years, his love is true?

REVIEW: I haven’t read western romance in a while, so when I was given the opportunity to read One Though Cowboy I was very excited. The story follows Sheriff Hunter Steele a war veteran & Samantha Jolene Ryder a Detroit cop. Both have had their share of heartbreaks and they haven’t seen each other since they were very young. But after tragedy hits Sam’s family, she had to make her way back to Deerhaven and seeing Hunter again did all kinds of things to her heart. Hunter has been a Sheriff in the town of Deerhaven since he returned from Iraq. He returned home to find a broken marriage full of deceit, and lies that left him with a broken heart.

But as these two old friends meet again, neither of them is the same person they once were, Sam now a cop in Detroit has worked hard to earn the praise & respect of her team. She is strong, intelligent and a very good cop, she is quite capable of taking the bad guys down. And while time in Detroit has left its mark, nothing had prepared Sam for what it was to come after her return to Deerhaven.

Sam’s aunt was found dead, and Sam was left with the job to handle her aunt’s finances and belongings. And after learning of the circumstances in which her aunt died, she knew there was something amiss and to her surprise, Hunter supported her suspicion of foul play.

In a town as small as Deerhaven there shouldn’t be any room for anything other than gossip, but that is not all that is happening in the small quaint and cute town. A series of murders have brought the town to a halt and Hunter & Sam will have to find out who is behind it.  Trust becomes a commodity in Deerheaven and Hunter no longer can trust those who he works closest with. With very few options Hunter reluctantly asks Sam for her help, knowing that Sam is the only person he can trust. It isn’t long after Sam & Hunter start working together when they find themselves confronting a dangerous & corrupted enemy that will stop at nothing to make sure their business is executed. What follows is an engaging fight between Sam, Hunter & other allies against a greedy politician, corrupted police and money hungry criminals that will stop at nothing.

One Though Cowboy has a great combination of action and sensuality. The scenes between Hunter and Sam are explosive and extremely hot, their attraction has always been there but it took time and working together for them to realize that what started as friendship would soon turn into a flat out hot and sexy romance. I enjoyed this story quite a lot, I found the story & characters engaging and the plot probable. The action was very entertaining and well played out, the scenes and the description put the reader in the front row of an action-packed, sexually charged story that will keep you turning the pages nonstop. I am looking forward to book #2 of the series.
