Sports therapist Lainie Capshaw has worked with injured cowboys for years. She knows to ignore the hunks and their seductive manners as she performs her rehabilitation. Her refrain is: don’t let herself fall for cowboys.
Thus she is stunned after being so successful ignoring them; Lainie is attracted to Hank Lawson the bullfighter and Kyle Gilchrist the bull rider. She enjoys both men, but also feels guilty that she sees each behind the stout back of the other. That is until judgment day comes when Hank finds her stepping out with Kyle. Neither Hank nor Kyle seem upset and in fact are buddies. Each wants her, but Lanie is reluctant as she knows she should choose which cowboy she prefers riding on into the sunset.
The first Blacktop Cowboys romance is a lighthearted frolic starring three strong protagonists and plenty of bull. The story line is fast-paced as Hank and Kyle compete as friendly rivals for the affection and love of Lainie, who has rodeo baggage that holds her somewhat back. Readers will be Corralled with the need to know who she chose; that is if she selects either.
