Wranglers of Wyoming, Book 3
A woman on the run must trust her family’s sworn enemy in this thrilling tale by one of the best in cowboy romance.
The cowboy she can’t have . . . is the one she can’t resist.
Annie Dempsey has two rules for her new life in Devil’s Door, Wyoming: no romance and no drama. Fresh off a bad breakup, she’s already avoiding love. And as long as she steers clear of the Merrick clan—her family’s sworn enemies—avoiding drama won’t be a problem. But when a charming stranger steps in to protect Annie from a sudden threat, both her rules fly out the door. Because Annie’s mystery hero . . . is a Merrick.
Jonah Merrick won’t allow anyone—even a Dempsey—to be harmed on his watch. It doesn’t hurt that sweet, gorgeous Annie makes his heart beat like never before. Against his family’s objections, Jonah insists Annie hide out with him at his ranch while they try to outwit a dangerous pursuer. But as the days turn into weeks, Jonah realizes he’ll stop anyone who tries to harm Annie . . . or the loving future they’re building together.
This is the third book of the series, and I’m afraid this is the end. Jonah is the last Merrick brother still single. He loves living on the ranch with his family, but he also has his own space, a cabin where he writes his bestselling novels. He is surprised to see a woman hiking by his cabin, and informs her she is on private land. They get to talking and he is not surprised by his attraction to Annie – this is the woman who piqued his interest in the local bar but disappeared into the night. Now that she’s here, Jonah wants to get to know her.
Annie is actually running from a bad relationship and has no interest in starting another. Until she meets Jonah. She really likes him but when they find out each other’s last names, things take a sudden turn. Annie is a Dempsey, sworn enemies of the Merrick family. But Annie is in big trouble, and Jonah realizes he wants to help. She ends up moving in with the family and eventually, she wins them all over. But trouble keeps finding her.
This cowboy romance has enough suspense to keep the pages turning – I couldn’t put it down. Lots of family drama and a bit of steamy romance all combine to make this book a winner! Can’t wait to see what Ryan does next.
