The Harts of the Rodeo mini-series has been really enjoyable so far and I was really looking forward to reading this one.

It is a really well crafted story, with plenty of depth. Although I felt the beginning was a little info-dumpy, but it eventually settled down and ended up being really entertaining. The author tells a nice story with a very natural love-story between the hero and heroine.

For me what makes this book stand out is the heroine. She has morals, and is an animal lover whom question

This was book three in of the Harts of Rodeo Series and this one dealt with Dylan aka Duke. The very handsome and straight as narrow "spare time " lawman. When a series of thefts brings him to the stray animal ranch of Angie he falls for her and he falls hard. He recognizes the troublesome time her son Luke is going through and knows how the poor kid feels.He knows just what to do to ease the boy's confusion,and Duke's faithful dog Zorro makes for a nice a
Very good book. Duke is working hard to find the thieves and also to help with the local rodeo. When he meets Angie he is immediately attracted to her and taken with her son. Angie runs her own business and is a single mother to her son. Luke's father had had no interest in being a husband and father and only wanted to pursue his rodeo career. Angie also runs a rescue ranch for abused animals, many of whom came from rodeos, which has caused her to be very anti-rodeo. When Duke befriends her son, ...more

What an adventure! It has been sometime since I read a book by Roz Denny Fox. But I'm ready for another one.
Dylan "Duke" Adams is a part-time deputy as well as rodeo rider. A string of burglaries takes him to Angie Barrington's abused animal Ranch. It's love at first sight.
Angie's son, Luke, stutters which Duke can relate to so is drawn to him. Luke adores Zorro, Duke's dog.
Thus an adventure begins that will change three lives. A story of what love will give up to commit to a person.

Wow, this one really came to a screeching halt. Definitely didn't seem to be resolved for me. But up until the last chapter I was really enjoying it and was hoping for more.

I love this Harts of the Rodeo series. All the books have been well written so far. I am so ready to find out who is doing the stealing from ranchers though.
