Marla Ellington inherits an abandoned town on ranchland near Wayback, Texas. When she arrives to claim her property, and finds Cody Matheson sitting on the porch of the dilapidated honky-tonk, her temper flares hotter than her pistol. Anger blazing, she settles in for a showdown.

Cody’s only goal for the week is to win the bull-riding event at the Saturday night rodeo. But when Marla receives an anonymous threat that forces her to leave town, Cody finds himself smack-dab in the middle of a mystery. ’Course, catching a criminal and lasting eight seconds on a bull are easy compared to winning the love of the feisty, strawberry-blonde beauty who wants nothing to do with him. Now it's his turn for a showdown.

This is a quick, fun, sensual book!

This is a miniature story but great fun. The characters were nicely developed for such a short story. Marla is definitely a feisty, sassy, independent young woman. She is determined to stay in her property but is surprised to find this hunky cowboy there. He gets off on the wrong foot with Marla when he teases her and won’t initially identify himself or his reason for being in the deserted town!

Cody seems very laid back and flirtatious. But there may be more to him than first meets the eye.
He claims he was hired to serve as her bodyguard although Marla is not sure whether she can believe him or trust him. But when a threat arises she is glad for his company and he quickly shifts into true protective mode!

The story is primarily centered on the relationship between Marla and Cody but the mysterious threat and the rodeo activities add good elements of suspense and fun. The writing is to the point and everything melds together well to keep this story moving quickly.

I really enjoyed this very light book. If you like a sexy cowboy and a fun, sassy story this is a great little read!
