In rural Montana, even the lawyers wear boots…

SYNOPSIS

In rural Montana…
Wade Knowlton is a hardworking lawyer who’s torn between his small-town Montana law practice and a struggling family ranch. He’s on the brink of exhaustion from trying to save everybody and everything, when gorgeous Nicole Powell walks into his office. She’s a damsel in distress and the breath of fresh air he needs.

Even the lawyers wear boots…

Nicole Powell is a sassy Southern girl who has officially sworn off cowboys after a spate of bad seeds-until her father’s death sends her to Montana and into the arms of a man who seems too good to be true. Her instincts tell her to high tail it out of Montana, but she can’t resist a cowboy with a slow hand…

Slow Hand (1)

“Darlin’, you ain’t seen a mountain until you’ve been to the Rockies.”

There are times you just want to pick up a book, get caught up in the sexiness and sweetness of it all and not have too much angst and drama. Well, that’s what we were in the mood for after a few ‘head messing’ books and what better way to find some sweet and sexy than with a cowboy! And Wade Knowlton fit the bill perfectly.

‘Wade Knowlton was everything she’d sworn off – all in one big hot cowboy package.’

Wade’s a smooth as silk, sexy as sin cowboy, with impeccable manners and a cowboy drawl that melted our knickers! We swear we were goners every time Wade so much as uttered the word darlin’….swoon city!

“Hate to burst your bubble, sweetheart, but a Stetson and a pair of Tony Lamas doesn’t make a man a cowboy.”

We’ve never read anything by this author before but after Slow Hand we intend to remedy that! We loved the setting, the characters were fun, their banter engaging. Wow! Those sexy innuendos had us fanning ourselves a time or two.

“Miz Powell, if I didn’t know better, I’d think you were undressing me with those pretty blue-green eyes of yours.”

Wade Knowlton is a lawyer and part owner of Flying K, though the ranch is a burden he’d rather not have. He’s not had a good run of relationships and has a pretty miserable past where women are concerned. We could understand him being a little gun shy of relationships.

When Nikki enters his life, the protective nature in Wade is brought to the forefront and feelings for Nikki go well beyond lust and mutual attraction. Wade wants more with Nikki but this lady has seen more than her fair share of players and bad boys, especially those of the love ’em and leave ’em cowboy variety and doesn’t believe Wade is any different.

“You sound like it would’ve been a bad thing but I promise you darlin’, you’d have awakened with a smile on your face. I know I would’ve.”

We felt the instant attraction, the lust and sexual chemistry between Wade and Nikki as it sizzled. This was one sexy couple. Wade completely and utterly stole our hearts. Really? What’s not to love about this guy? He wears his heart on his sleeve, never shies away from expressing his feelings, his wants and desires Nikki and he is a walking hunk of gorgeous male!

Wade couldn’t have made himself clearer, nor been more upfront and honest with Nikki from the start when he made it apparent how he felt towards her and what he wanted from their relationship.

You devastate me, Nikki. Do you know that?”

Now herein lies the problem. Nikki did grate on us somewhat. Her lack of trust in Wade was unwarranted. This guy never did anything, never acted in any way to make her so distrusting of him. Oh sure, she’d been burned in the past but it was very clear Wade was cut from a different cloth than her previous boyfriends. Just when she was starting to grate on every last nerve though, thankfully the author pulled it back and we settled in to enjoy the story.

We’re certainly looking forward to picking up further books in this series. As we said, sometimes you just want an easy, entertaining, fun, sexy and sweet read. If that’s what you’re after, you can’t go wrong with this one! A hot contemporary cowboy romance series set in Southwestern Montana, what more could you ask for?
