Who can resist a tough, rugged cowboy? Not these feisty, determined women!
Melanie Summers, a feisty zoologist with big dreams, must spend a month in the Wyoming wilderness in order to satisfy a deal made with her father.
Stoney Buxton is a hard-driving cowboy with simple values who needs to raise quick money to save the family ranch. Re-entering the rodeo circuit seems like the best way to get the money he needs until Melanie Summers shows up at his ranch flashing easy money. To everyone else, her offer seems like the answer to all his prayers. But one look at her long legs and pouting lips and Stoney know this high society gal is going to be nothing but trouble for his cowboy heart.
There’s a lot to be said about short and sweet and Nothing But Trouble won’t disappoint you in that regard. The sparks start to fly when Melanie Summers thrusts herself in Stoney Buxton’s life to hire him to guide her in the Wyoming wilderness for a month.
Stoney is that quintessential cowboy; he loves and supports his family, is true to his roots, and is is the strong and silent type with a marshmallow heart for those he loves. Although he was a bit of a grump at times; I fell in love with him immediately and wanted to wrap him up and bring him home.
Melanie grew up protected and wealthy; she is independent, proud, a bit too stubborn and also a diabetic. Although I admired her independence, her reluctance to accept help when she needed it made me want to shake her at times. There is something about a smart, independent woman that is in over her head that will not ask for help that just drives me crazy. However, I could understand Melanie’s point of view in not wanting to disclose her diabetes, since she had been judged and treated by it all her life. She wanted to be more and I admired her for it.
Overall, Nothing But Trouble is a wonderful story. I appreciated the author’s attempt to incorporate Melanie’s diabetes into a unique storyline. Recommended for readers that like cowboys, sexy romance and novellas.
