If there’s one type of man beloved by the romance genre, it’s the cowboy. Known for being tough, hard working, muscular and generally sexy in every way, cowboys make perfect leading men.
What they are not, typically, is sensitive and committed to going the extra mile for the happiness of total strangers. Unless said cowboy is the protagonist of Cowboy Charm School, an endearing new novel by Margaret Brownley.
Brett Tucker is a sexy, skilled Texas Ranger on a mission he is determined to see through to the end—even if it means breaking into the wedding of an infamous outlaw, guns drawn. Once he realizes that he’s got the wrong man, and that his less-than-tactful interruption has caused a rift between the bride and groom, he sets out to make it right. But making amends means spending an awful lot of time with Kate Denver, the bride in question, and each moment between them only serves to weaken his resolve, and to strengthen their growing bond.
Kate Denver has exactly zero patience for her fiancé’s jealous outburst after their aborted nuptials, and she calls the wedding off without hesitation. However, the more her erstwhile groom tries to win her back, the more she begins to see that maybe finding what she wants isn’t as simple as she had imagined.
What makes Cowboy Charm School particularly unique and precious is its unexpected hero. While Brett Tucker is a man’s man and a Ranger, he’s also a guy with tremendous integrity and empathy. He works tirelessly and genuinely to set Kate’s torn relationship right, even once he realizes that he’s falling for her. He meshes perfectly with the equally determined and self-assured Kate, and their chemistry all but sizzles off the page.
Devoid of the often-predictable elements common to Western romances, Cowboy Charm School is a rare, refreshing tale that is as pure at heart as it is irresistibly sexy and engaging. Pick up Margaret Brownley’s latest masterpiece for the feel-good story of the season.
