The rodeo arena is always treacherous.

Now it’s deadly…

It’s no accident Deputy Tessa McKade is trapped with an angry bull ready to trample her to death. She quickly realizes that McKade Law is no longer enough to keep her safe—and it’s her rescuer, Braden Hayes, who stands in as her bodyguard. As they seek to stop a would-be killer, Braden will have to use all his professional skills to guard Tessa’s life.

My thoughts:  RODEO STANDOFF is Ms. Sleeman's newest romantic suspense.  And who expects it to start with her trying to stand-down an angry bull that appears out of nowhere? Or a hot cowboy who shows up in the nick of time to save her life?  But it soon becomes apparent that someone is serious in there attempts to kill Tessa McKade--but why? And who?

I had fun trying to figure out who-dun-it in this book. So many red-herrings. So many possible reasons why. So many with motive and mean. Tessa has enemies both in the rodeo world and in the law enforcement world. Needless to say, I did not guess who did it until it was revealed (some of these authors are getting sneaky!) 

Ms. Sleeman did a good job of catching the aura and persona of rodeo champions and I could almost smell the dust and hear the screams of the crowd as the cowboy fought to stay on top of a bucking bull for six seconds (or longer) .... fighting for the championship.  

I was given a copy free. All opinions are my own.

Love reading Love Inspired Suspense books. This sounds like a great one if Sleeman stumped you with who was after Tessa.
