Cowboys, romance, friendship, small-town community, and plenty of suspense. The perfect elements for an evening curled up with a book. A Cowboy Kind of Love by Donna Grant delivered just that. Check out my thoughts and see why I enjoy the Heart of Texas series.

Who wants to rodeo again?
Jace Wilder has been rebuilding his life since the love of his life, Taryn, up and left town unexpectedly. But when she mysteriously returns, Jace’s dependable world comes crashing down. Taryn is hiding a dangerous secret, and no matter how hard he tries, Jace can’t stay away―especially when Taryn is at risk. And especially when the attraction he thought he’d buried long ago is back and hotter than ever. Will he be able to trust Taryn again?
Taryn Hillman’s world fell apart one horrifying night, and it’s never been the same since. When she sees a small chance at untangling herself, she takes it, though it means returning to Clearview – and seeing Jace again. But when he vows to protect her, will Taryn take a chance, and this time, never let him go?
A Cowboy Kind of Love by Donna Grant is the sixth novel in the Heart of Texas series. This romantic suspense offered plenty of heat and surprises.
This story belongs to Jace Wilder, and while this is sixth in a series, each book has its own storyline and romance.
Jace is a former Marine Raider, who had his heart broken when the girl he planned to marry left without so much as a goodbye. With the help of his friends he has been trying to move on with his life… but there have been stumbling blocks, like the anniversary of the night they first met. When Taryn Hillman returns, she comes seeking help and the story she tells has Jace calling his friends.
I loved returning to Clearview, Texas and seeing the men and women whose stories I know. Jace is a sweetie who has had a tough time. This second chance romance pulled at your heartstrings. Taryn’s story for leaving is a dark one, and she and her sister are in grave danger.
It was fun seeing the gang come together to aid Jace and Tarayn. Grant delivered plenty of suspense and did so while throwing in twists, secrets and jaw dropping discoveries.
Despite the incredibly fast-paced tempo of this story, Grant made this second chance romance feel genuine. She delivered heat, tender moments and allowed the reader to feel connected.
Topics addressed include PTSD, drug lords, trafficking, and special ops. I am looking forward to returning to Clearview for more stories.

I’ve read one of Grant’s romantic suspense stories and it didn’t quite click for me, but I should give her another try. This story sounds exactly like something I’d enjoy. Lovely review, Sophia Rose! 🙂
Oh this sounds good and I think I read an earlier book by this author and really enjoyed it. I need to go through Goodreads and find out.

I’m glad you enjoyed this book. It definitely is another fast paced one. I had some issues with it.. but still definitely enjoyed it.
I’m not big on cowboy romances but need one for a book challenge I’m in. Since this is the sixth book, maybe I should check out the first in the series.
This sounds like a good series. I like a romance that has some serious issues in the story as well. I just read another good review about this story. I will have to see if my library has this series.

Gah book 6. I read the first one and enjoyed it. Maybe someday I can catch up.
I love country music so I’m not sure why I’ve not added any cowboy books to my TBR as of yet ?
I’m a fan of second chance romance, so thanks for this. Will have to check out this series. 🙂
i really hope he’s not in a real danger of burning himself with attraction. I love romance, but I think it’s high time someone invent a new romance speak
I started reading it last night! I didn’t want to put it down. It’s a heartstring tugger for sure.

Oh, this sounds like one that I would really enjoy. I adored the first book in this series and have no idea why I haven’t read more. I will need to get my hands on this one.
I am looking forward to reading this one.
Oh that’s an author I heard a lot about but that I haven’t tried yet.
