The Trouble With Cowboys

Author: Denise Hunter
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
October 2012
ISBN: 978-1595548030
Genre: Inspirational/contemporary romance

Annie Wilkenson will never marry a cowboy. Her mother had—four times—and each time, the man left. Annie wants someone safe. Someone with a steady, stable job. Someone she can trust. Banker John Oakley fits the bill.

Dylan Taylor’s horse is going blind, and he needs Annie’s help with it. Annie is a professional horse trainer, the best. Only thing is, Annie won’t give him the time of day. She refers him to another trainer, but he isn’t working out.

Annie finally agrees to help Dylan’s horse, but only if he’s willing to help her with her “love” column for a magazine. She’s never been in love—not even with John, and Dylan is quite the lady’s man. Only thing is—Dylan isn’t quite what he seems. And Annie has everything to lose if she allows him too close.

THE TROUBLE WITH COWBOYS is another sweet romance by talented author Denise Hunter. I couldn’t help but fall in love with Annie and with Dylan. I’ve been waiting for his story since the first book and it didn’t disappoint. Dylan has been hurt, and despite his flirting, he is careful to guard his heart.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and couldn’t put it down. I can’t wait until Ms. Hunter’s next book comes out. A great read. Discussion questions are included at the end of the book. $12.99. 304 pages.

About the Book: 

Only one pair of boots—and the cowboy wearing them—can get Annie out of the mess she’s in.

Annie Wilkerson is Moose Creek’s premiere horse trainer and equine columnist for Montana Living. Money is tight as she tries to put her kid-sister through college and provide for her young nephew. When Annie’s column is cancelled, she’s given first shot at a new lovelorn column—and she can’t afford to turn it down. Only problem is . . . Annie’s never been in love.

Always resourceful, she reluctantly strikes a deal with the town’s smooth-talking ladies’ man Dylan Taylor: She’ll work with his ailing horse, Braveheart, if he’ll help her answer the reader letters.

Working closely with Dylan is harder than Annie imagined, and she quickly realizes she may have misjudged him. But her unwavering conviction that cowboys are nothing but trouble has kept her heart safe for years. And she can’t risk getting hurt now.
The more Annie tries to control things, the more they fall apart. Her feelings are spinning out of control, and her sister’s antics are making life increasingly more difficult. Annie knows she needs to turn the reins over to God, but surrender has never come easily.

When Dylan reveals his feelings for her, Annie doesn’t know what to trust—her head or her heart. The trouble with this cowboy is that he might just be exactly what she needs.
