Putting it all on the line for love…

Tyler had a dream, one that was encouraged by his mother and dismissed by his father.  Soon after his mother’s death a chance to see if that dream could become a reality came along and in spite of the falling out it brought between Ty and his father, he made the choice to follow that dream.  Add in a few complications along the way, a scared woman, an adorable yet frightened child, one proud grandmother, some nasty villains and a mystery to be solved and you’ll find an interesting cowboy romance.

Do or Die Cowboy is an intriguing mix of personalities and circumstances that works well and drew me into their world quite easily.  June Faver is a new to me author, and one that I’ll be looking for more from in addition to continuing the Dark Horse Cowboys series.  Leah and Gracie were on the run from an abusive, vile ex, one who has already proven he isn’t afraid to cause physical harm.  The only sanctuary Leah could think of was her grandparent’s ranch and along the way she discovered the kindness of strangers – one in particular.  She’d had no idea of the struggle her grandmother was having after her grandfather’s death, and there was a lot of hard work ahead to save their ranch.  She wasn’t afraid of hard work but there was more going on and danger, in several forms, soon became apparent.  Together, Leah and Tyler made a believable couple, one that would work through some dangerous times to find their eventual happiness.  I am definitely looking forward to Hot Target Cowboy, the next story in this series.  If you’re in the mood for a cowboy romance with a touch of mystery, then you’d enjoy Do or Die Cowboy.
