One Lucky Cowboy (Lucky #2)
Jane Day is on the run from the paid assassin who had been her fiancé. In Wichita Falls, Texas, she meets Nellie Luckadeau, a spitfire of an old lady who desperately needs someone to work on her ranch. But Nellie's drop-dead gorgeous grandson "Lucky Slade" is sure he can spot a con artist a mile away. He's determined not to let some upstart like Jane fleece his granny.
I liked the beginning of this book, meeting the characters, learning about why the heroine is hiding from her fiance. I didn’t even mind the sniping and snipping between the hero and heroine. In the beginning anyway. That’s another story that will come later. The main problem with this book for me that started early is the di ...more

This book was certainly convoluted, and the beginning was fun-I enjoyed the characters' banter and chemistry, but really it lost me at the end-the last few chapters were pretty terrible, and I ended up actually no ...more

The plot and the characters were great though! I loved the action element. While I've never personally found arguing and bickering to fan the flames of desire, it was a great element here and done well. I also enjoyed the glimpse of the previous book's main charact ...more

You see, Jane's fiance and her step father want the oil company that will be hers on her 25th birthday and will use any means to get it.
When Slade's aunt befriends Jane at the bus station and brings her home it makes Slade a very unhappy rancher.
I have enjoyed each and every book I've read and am enjoying this one just as much. So very glad to have an extra day off to enjoy this book.
Awesome book. Think I'll go dig out a few more of hers and do a re-read.
I would say don't read it.
