Title: Lonely Cowboy
Navy SEAL Simon Morrison came home broken. But quilter Tate Stevens is slowly healing him. If only Simon’s secret didn’t endanger them both.
Tate… I fell in love with a man I didn't understand. You know how that is? Simon Morrison has long silver blond hair in a ragged ponytail and blue eyes more alive than I've ever seen, like he's walked with death so everything else has burned away. He's a warrior who came back broken, who hides in the shadows. And there's something dangerous about him, but I didn't understand until the night I ran after him and they were waiting—the other wolves. They tore into me and I died. My name is Tate Stevens and I died but something keeps me here. I can't leave my warrior behind, no matter how much it hurts or how whatever it is I am becoming confuses me.
Simon… I came back from Afghanistan with one goal, to find a place to die. But slowly, watching Tate working on his art quilts, it got so it didn't hurt so much. I felt the colours coming back. He is my light. He is my heart. They tried to take him away from me while I screamed his name. And now he thinks he's a monster. He is so alone. I have to find a way to bring him back to his light…

Lonely Cowboy, Jan Irving’s Uncommon Cowboys #7 was a delightfully sexy read. Simon, wolf shifter and Afghan war veteran was a scarred man attempting to live his life in seclusion until quilt-maker Tate arrived in town. The quilt –maker turned his world upside down.
Emotionally and physically damaged, Simon must come to terms with his self-perceived issues while falling in love with the sexy L.A. transplant. What Ms. Irving wove was a beautiful story, heartfelt and romantic.
Yes, there was violence in Lonely Cowboy, even to the point that Tate was killed by rogue shifters. But, the transformation from death to life left my heart full with a deep sense of richness and an abundance of love.
Ms. Irving developed characters that resonated passion deep in their soul. Simon and Tate were stunted in the ways of love, but found commonality in their desire for true happiness sans physical obstacles. I fell in love with both men, I found myself needing them to be together to heal each other- and Jan Irving delivered.
As a fan of the series, every book has touched me, but Lonely Cowboy has to be my favorite. Although this book is a standalone, this reviewer recommends that you purchase the rest of the series. You will not be disappointed.
