A Cowboy's Return by Vicki Lewis Thompson
This is full of angst and heartbreak. I didn't really like April, she broke Ryker's heart and punished him for being himself. Ryker is sweet, romantic, charming, proud and extremely likable. The storyline is engrossing and romantic, but sad. Ryker and April sizzle when they are near each other, but both fight against it because she is convinced that they can't work, and he refuses to be devastated again. Him playing guard for someone who hates who he is is adorable. The end is very abrupt and unexpected, but captivating. I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author. This is my voluntary and honest opinion of it.
