There's a reason Western romance novels never go out of fashion. The cowboy is an iconic figure embodying the dichotomy of the fiercely independent, earthy alpha male juxtaposed with the male as a nurturer and protector. Cowboys take care of their women in every possible way. Wild and wayward women are gentled by the scent of horse and cow and the sight of sun-kissed skin, the feel of work-hardened thighs and arms, and the sound of a deep-voiced Texas drawl. Contributors at the top of the Western romance genre, including Charlene Teglia, Randi Alexander, and Cat Johnson, have corralled here strong and memorable characters ranging from a rodeo star and a cop on horseback to a feisty female gunslinger. Traversing romantic settings from Montana, Texas, California, Mexico, and the Outback of Australia, the stories in Cowboy Lust are risky and risqué, full of studs in spurs hot enough to send you to a vacation on a dude ranch!

And sometimes a physician needs a little help before he can heal himself.

It depends on the sudden appearance of the one person who could bring them closer together!
Ride horseback through dangerous Montana high country with infuriating AJ Clayburn as her guide?

As likely as snow in August. Until a late-summer blizzard gearing up to strand AJ and Jacquelyn in the mountains had them thinking about today, tomorrow--and forever.
