Danny Oldman may hide his loneliness behind his even temper and cheerful smiles, but his friends know he seems to spend an awful lot of time either working or staying at home and hasn't had a date in a long time. Danny lives for his job and does it really well, but all these years of being first a police officer and then the sheriff and seeing awful crimes have left him feeling sad and lonely. He knows he has been drinking more and more just to get through the night and it can't be good. On ...more

This is my first read by Donna Grant and I think the word that I am looking for here is "delightful"!!!!

I really liked the small town romance feel this book had while still incorporating a very real and true to life situation here- Skylar the heroine was being stalked,terrorized and physically abused by her Ex.
Danny the local sheriff was beyond charming.
Loved this Cowboy!!!

This book really ended up having it all, some intense drama with equally wild action and a great suspense plus

I really liked Danny. He seemed to subconsciously wait for Skylar to come back into his life. He had a crush on her in High School and she moved away as soon as they graduated. He never got serious with anyone else in the time they were apart and I like that it might have been because his heart was already taken.

Skylar also had a crush on Danny in high school. If only these two had the guts to approach each other, but then Danny had a point when he said it just wasn't their time yet. Great

“A Cowboy Like You” is a well written and addictive story that draws you into the life of Danny Oldman, a positively handsome Lone Star sheriff. He is married to his job and longs to have the kind of love and relationship that others have, however the one person he loves is an old high school crush that has made a new life in Houston, TX.

It is not until Skylar Long walks back into Danny's life that old memories of her start to resurface. His heart stirs up old feelings and a hope that he can get

Another great book by Ms. Grant, not only can she do dragon kings but also cowboys. Danny is the local sheriff and he once loved Skylar. She left, but now she's back and trouble is following her. Danny is her knight with a shiny star, and lots of hot lovin'. Lots of help from the previous couples, as well as couple of yummy friends who I hope get their own books.

A Cowboy Like You

*REVIEW*
A Cowboy Like You is a sweet second chance romance. Danny and Skylar were high school sweethearts, but the relationship ended, and Skylar left small town life behind. Now, years later, Danny is the town Sheriff, single(he never got over Skylar),and the woman he has always loved is back in town. Skylar is fleeing from her obsessive abusive ex

Danny is as loyal and as dependable as the day is long. He is also lonely and maybe spending a little too much time alone with a bottle of cheap whiskey at night. While he enjoys a takeout meal at a local lookout point, a car pulls in and with it trouble. Thankfully, he is there to stop a violent altercation and save a young woman…who turns out to be Skylar Long. The girl he had a crush on throughout high school.

Skylar is trying to leave an abusive relationship and Danny sets out to help her.

A wonderful addition to the series (I've read other books in the series before) in general, and a story I just really enjoyed reading from beginning till end.

It wasn't anything overly spectacular and quite predictable, which is why I didn't rate it higher than 3,5 stars. But nonetheless, it was a book I was always excited for to pick up at the end of the day, when I read it on my Kindle in bed.

It was a fast paced read thanks to the enjoyable writing style.

A Cowboy Like You was quite the read! Intense drama, great suspense, one charmingly sweet cowboy, and a stronger-than-she-knows heroine, there was so much happening, I couldn’t turn away! I haven’t read previous books in this series and had no trouble following who’s who. However, my curiosity was definitely engaged about recurring characters and I can’t wait to read this backlist!

Sissy's Romance Book Review
A Cowboy Like You by Donna Grant is book 4 in the Heart of Texas Series. This is the story of Skylar Long and Danny Oldman. I have read the previous books but feel you could make this a standalone book if you wish to do so. Danny has always had a crush on Skylar when they were younger but she left town and he stayed to become the Sheriff of the the town. Of course his feeling for her hasn't really gone away so when she returns to town this may be his chance to win her back. Skylar had to return ...more

I received an ARC of this book to read through NetGalley in exchange for a fair review. A Cowboy Like You is the fourth book in Donna Grant’s Heart of Texas series. It can be read as a stand-alone as I have not read the other books in the series and did not find that I felt I was missing anything. This is a second chance at love story. Sherrif Danny Oldman has never gotten over his high school crush Skylar Long so when a chance meeting allows him to rescue her from her abusive boyfriend he is ...more

The cover doesn’t tell us much except that we’re dealing with a good-looking, clean-cut, hardworking cowboy. But that’s probably enough to get most of us who like this genre to buy the book!

I love the covers of this series. They make me want to get in them and have a cowboy to call mine.
Danny and Skylar are that typical teenage couple who have crush, but no one is brave enough to make the first move, and when the courage comes, the opportunity has passed. And that made Danny heartbroken.
Years later, Danny's crush returns to town, and now she has serious problems when her ex decides never to stop bothering/stalking her.
Now is the time for Sheriff Danny Oldman to take action, just

It is not within my being to understand the need to beat on another person. So I normally avoid books that have abuse as the story line. Yes, this is a second chance romance but it doesn't ring true to me that she would even consider jumping back into a relationship while still running from an abuser. From the standpoint of Danny, he has created a world for himself that we can envy. He has his dream job and an amazing circle of friends. Now he has a chance to realize a relationship with his high ...more

A Cowboy Like You is book 4 in the Heart of Texas series and it can be read as a stand-alone but I do recommend you start from the beginning because you get to know more about some of the secondary characters from this book.



I was so hooked into this story that I just couldn't put it down. This book has suspense and romance. I just loved the chemistry between Danny and Skylar. I loved seeing some of the characters from previous books as well.

This book is part of the Hearts of Texas series but can easily be read as a stand alone novel. I must say that while I enjoyed the story overall, I did have some issue with the timing of this story. Considering that Skylar was just coming out of an abusive relationship, I mean as in yesterday, I didn't like how fast she jumped into something with the sheriff, Danny. Granted the two knew each other from high school, their whirlwind relationship just seemed out of place for me. I would have ...more

A Cowboy Like You is the fourth book in Donna Grant's Heart of Texas series, a series I've been following, and, although I found some things I liked about this novel, I will admit to having some problems with it as well, which is the reason for my giving a rating of just 3 stars.

First, the title--the hero, Danny, is the sheriff, not a cowboy, and while a good part of this novel is centered at the East Ranch, owned by the Harper family (we've met the Harper siblings in the first 3 novels in the

Almost as if his thoughts have conjured her he sees the woman he has been thinking about attacked in the parking area he just happens to be parked in.

Sheriff Danny Oldman has been a steady presence in the Heart of Texas series, always there to help the East-Harper family and do what’s right, and now it’s his turn to find love and happiness...but not without some obstacles and more than a bit of danger in A Cowboy Like You.

Danny has lived his entire life in his hometown and although he has created a loyal group of friends he hasn’t been so lucky when it comes to love. He puts all his focus on his career as a Sheriff but that doesn’t stop him from feeling isolated as everyone around him finds their soul mate. Facing another night alone he didn’t expect the surprise that trip to the diner would bring.

Danny works hard at his job. It's difficult being the sheriff. While eating his dinner at a rest area, he rescues an abused woman from her violent boyfriend. Danny is dedicated professional. He follows the letter of the law. I wish that he didn't feel so isolated. It's ironic that the woman he rescues is his old high school crush. Skylar is beautiful, funny and intelligent. How did she find herself in this situation? I sympathized with her. I was glad that she had the courage to leave. It's too ...more

I was immediately drawn to Danny Oldman, the hero in this story, as he portrayed a deep sadness and loneliness that almost broke my heart. He is the sheriff and it takes up most of his life, time, and is a major commitment but he realizes he is just…alone in the world. He has great friends – ones that you REALLY wish would have your back if you ever needed help – but it’s just not the same as having a family of your own. And it’s close to the holidays so I could actually feel his sadness.
