Title: Her Lucky Cowboy
Everything's bigger in Big Sky country, including the hearts of the Montana Men...
Champion rodeo rider Dane Bowden is eight seconds from winning under the Vegas lights, one last hurrah before reluctantly returning to his family's Montana ranch. But his bull has other plans. When Dane wakes up, he's sure he's died and gone to heaven . . . because the doctor who comes to his aid is the same girl who saved his life and disappeared years ago.
Bell would do anything for Dane. He's the fantasy that always kept her going. A child genius hidden away by her family, Bell was the secret no one talked about, the girl no one wanted. Despite finding success as a young surgeon, she's still the awkward girl who's never had a boyfriend. So why does Dane, a notorious playboy and sizzling-hot cowboy, insist on taking her on a real date?
Bell is the only woman in Dane's heart. When a rodeo rivalry turns deadly, it's his turn to save Bell's life—because he sure as hell won't lose his guardian angel again.

Oh those hot Bowden boys! I have loved every one. Her Lucky Cowboy features the youngest of the bunch – Dane. *sigh* A bull rider of all things. Not my favorite type of cowboy. It is such a dangerous activity, which is dramatically demonstrated in the first chapter of this book. OMG. I was breathless. But Dane is, after all, the hero of this book so he must survive. Survive he does in a most heroic way. *sigh*
Needless to say, I was completely hooked into this story. Could not put it down until the very end. Dane was just as hot and sweet as the rest of his brothers. Speaking of which, they all show up in this book, more than once. with their wives. It was quite nice to catch up with the rest of the family and see how each are doing. One of my favorite things about a series like this. That being said, you can read this as a stand-alone story. Personally, I am glad for having read most of the other brother’s stories, but I would have been okay if I hadn’t.
As for our lovely heroine in Her Lucky Cowboy, Dr. Bell, we have actually already met her in both Montana Men #1 – At Wolf Ranch – and #2 – When It’s Right. I found it added an interesting twist to this story. Dr. Bell turns out to be a most interesting character, as well as a very talented doctor. She has overcome a horrendous childhood to shine as a caring and loving person. An amazing person I would love to be friends with.
I liked the nuances of this story and the personal growth of both characters. It made for a beautiful and believable romance.
Then there was the suspense part of the story. Jennifer Ryan does a wonderful job of weaving heart stopping suspense into her romances. It is not pretty. It is dark and deadly, but oh so enthralling. In the final action sequence I could actually smell “the rotting flesh” as she was describing it, *shutter* and I was holding my breath because of the danger of the scene.
This book introduced another family of hot guys who need wives, or so thinks their sweet, scheming grandfather. Do I see another Montana Men type series in the making? Or even a continuation of this series? I look forward to it. However, the blurb and excerpt included at the end of this book indicates that the author is returning to the Hunted series. I haven’t read that one yet but it is on my to-be-read list. I need to go read now.
I recommend that you grab a copy of this and go read too.
