Presley West walked away from the bodyguard business to return to his roots as a cowboy. He does not want to go back to his other life. Too bad fate has other ideas. When he rescues a woman stranded on the interstate, his protective instincts roar back to life.
Amber Barlow doesn’t need or want a man to tell her what to do. She’s had enough of that from her abusive ex. But violence and degradation lurk behind her, and whether the man hunting her finds her or not, the past could destroy her future and the sweet guardian cowboy she longs to share it with.
Guardian Cowboy offers exactly what readers of this genre look for – a handsome, tough cowboy with a tender heart and a feisty woman to make him face his soft side. Amber’s fluctuating self-image and Presley’s need to save the world complement one another nicely. Although a bit cliché in places, overall Ms. Love’s story is a sweet, gentle and well-written love story that will tug at your heart strings.
