As a Texas native who now lives in Oklahoma, I have seen my share of cowboys. I know this may seem picky, but I couldn't get past the fact that Rafe was constantly described as wearing boots with flower or star patterns. Note to Ms. Krentz: No self respecting cowboy would allow himself to wear such prissy clothing! Other than this obvious faux pas, the story seemed pretty much like the standard Krentz romance. Arrogant man bent on revenge meets feisty heroine who convinces him revenge is not the answer. I sometimes think Ms. Krentz's characters are interchangeable. On the plus side, this is a light, breezy romance perfect for an easy read. If you aren't expecting an original plot and you can stomach a cowboy with purple flowers on his boots, then this is the book for you.
