With his competing days behind him, Wyatt Marshall has settled into ranching life in Marietta, Montana. But with the Copper Mountain Rodeo, his only exception, just around the corner, the last thing he needs is a distraction – especially one in the form of a pretty, yet vaguely familiar country singer.
For Claire Miller, it's been almost a year since she fled Las Vegas with only her purse and the clothes on her back, and she's been laying low in Montana with a new image. When she and her country band travel to perform in the small town of Marietta, she doesn't plan on getting stranded there for several days. Or for an innocent offer to stay at a nearby ranch to turn out to be more than she bargained for: she recognizes its owner to be the same sexy cowboy she got hot and heavy with – then stood up – in Vegas.
With the passion flaring between them and Wyatt getting closer to putting the pieces together, Claire is ready to run again, not knowing the danger that sent her fleeing in the first place is close on her heels.
3 Putting down roots Stars
Protect Me, Cowboy, the 2nd book in the 78th Copper Mountain Rodeo series was an okay read for me. It had a good plot and a likable main couple but something was missing for me. And I can't put my finger on what that something is. I liked Wyatt. Thought he was sexy and sweet, but he didn't really stand out to me. The same with Claire. I thought she was sweet with a little bit of sass but again not something that really stuck out for me. The story kept a nice pace and had some action. I felt the ending was rushed and the bad guy was taken care of way too easily. Also I was really disappointed that there was no epilogue. I was really looking forward to that peek into their HEA and I didn't get it. Overall an enjoyable, quick read.
