A Real Cowboy Knows How to Kiss by Stephanie Rowe

A Wyoming Rebels book

4 1/2 HockeyStyxxx

Steen Stockton had put in his time but after 4 years behind bars he wasn’t prepared to deal with not only the pain in his side from saving a young man from the knife that was intended for him but the lack of breath he felt when he faced her again…. The one girl who had changed his outlook on life so long ago.

 

Helping her friend Josie with her vet practice while she was off in Chicago dealing with family matters,  Erin Chambers never imagined more than a few weeks back in Wyoming would bring her face to face with the one man who she not only crushed on but had dreamed of as the one man who would always be there for her.

The last few years had been hell but Erin had made it through and in the end the working vacation had given her the one thing she had wanted her whole life.  Steen Stockton.  Being with the man who had looked beyond the rich girl everyone else saw and recognized that she was a scared lonely girl who only wanted to be a vet and help the animals she had always loved.  Her parents and her ex were only reminders that she had never lived up to their standards but Steen was something else.  He was the one man she knew would accept her as she was.

10 days to be with the one girl…the one woman who kept him going through the last 4 years of being in prison.

Steens’ stint in prison had left him torn and ready to run and hide but finding a connection with Erin again…. And the girl who he knew by hearing her voice alone after all these years.  He couldn’t risk telling her the truth and lose the one thread of hope that had kept him alive when the doctors had left little hope.

Wow.  OK I love Stephanies work.  Always have but I am loving this series even more every step of the way.  The Stockton brothers are victims.  Victims that have banded together through their upbringing and the vows they made to never let a woman into their hearts and homes that would give them the chance to repeat the horrors they faced as kids.  Steen had one of the hardest shells of all after being betrayed by a woman and paying with his freedom because of her lies but with a few spoken words he opens up and not only allows someone in, he allows the one girl who he knew deep in his heart would never hurt him.  If only he could promise her the same.

Erin had battled her whole life but in a way that was so far from the life Steen had dealt with it was hard to believe they were both victims of parental abuse.  Fighting to make a career for herself in a field she loved was hard especially when her ex was not only a carbon copy of her father with his neglect but threw his infidelities in her face. Erin held on by a thread to a dream of a man that would always had her back when she needed it the most.  If only he could see that she needed more from him than he was ready to give.

This story was very emotional.  Sexy romps intertwined with two people fighting to grasp on to something neither believes they deserve makes it a hard book to put down but watching as they make decisions that have the potential to break them apart forever tugs at the heart strings.  Believe me.  Their story is one that will have you in tears by the end…. Tears of both heartbreak and joy that you have to read for yourself to fully understand the struggles of holding on to the love of your life despite the consequences.

I just wanted to share…. this man has stated his opinion and presented his argument as a smart, well versed and logistical manner.

Dear Kevin,

I read your “40 questions for Christians now waving rainbow flags” with interest. I don’t have a rainbow-themed avatar, but I have a good deal in common with those you were addressing.

Besides, as you say, it’s always good to “slow down and think.”

You describe your questions as “sincere, if pointed.” I took this to mean they were designed to elicit a response. So respond I have. As much as possible, I’ve tried to follow your lead—offering what I hope are sincere, if occasionally pointed, replies.

A few of your questions seemed redundant (e.g. #2 and #3, #29 and #30). In such cases I did not bother to repeat my answers. For you, each question may have had its own nuance, but I felt the same answers applied, at least broadly speaking.

One last point before diving in… I think I speak for a lot of us when I say that what we’re cheering for is definitely not

OK for those who know me personally I have been changing a few things in my day to day life, although some not as fast as I would like.  One of those things though that has changed is my delving into more of some time travel ideas since getting hooked on Dr. Who by one of my good friends and some fantasy stuff by finally getting to watch the entire series of The Almighty Johnsons.  (If you haven’t watched check it out… 4 handsome Kiwi brothers who are the current incarnations of the Norse Gods Odin and more!) Thank you Netflix and unlimited internet plan to accomplish this.

Next on my to do list is delve more thoroughly into the Chronos world created by Rysa Walker.  I have read snippets and can’t wait to dig in deeper!  She has a very amazing group of dedicated fans and I have heard nothing but great things about this series!  Check her out in the links below!  Her latest novella Times Mirror just released!  I hope to have a review soon from a friend who is devoted to this series…. if not then hold on for a bit and I will do the honors!!!
