When Amanda Lang had started her “Ten
Things I’d Do For a Cowboy” article, she’d never anticipated
that it would end with her own husband running off with the
wife of one of the cowboys. Now she had returned to Buchanan
Wild Horse and Burro Transition Ranch hoping to make amends.
Rafe Buchanan could not believe what his
father and uncle had done. They had gone behind his back and
conspired with the enemy, and that was one of the more kinder
words he would use to describe Amanda. They were allowing her
to come to the ranch to write an article to raise awareness of
wild horse adoptions.
Ten Things I’d Do For a Cowboy
is about a heroine who believes that she needs forgiveness,
and a hero who (at first) doesn’t believe she deserves any.
What neither of them initially realize, is that Amanda is just
as much a victim as Rafe. Amanda needs to accept that she was
not responsible for her husband cheating on her, and as Rafe
spends more time with her, he begins to learn about the real
Amanda, not the person he imagined her to be. As they both
come to terms with their mutual past, they begin to wonder if
they might just have a future together.
I was impressed by the depth of the
characters, and enjoyed the storyline. It was entertaining,
as well as informative about the horse adoptions. I was a bit
disappointed by being able to continually predict Rafe’s
reactions, but overall, I was very pleased with this story. I
look forward to more stories by this author.
