Can't stop running from the past...
Dani Crawford has a secret…and if bounty hunter Jackson Cade finds out, he could ruin everything. The scarred yet handsome cowboy has tracked a dangerous criminal to the dude ranch Dani manages, and to get rid of Jack she'll have to help him catch his man. But the closer they get to cornering their quarry the more Dani wants Jack to stay. Spending time with him is making her long for things she can never have thanks to a past mistake. And if the truth comes out she may be spending her future behind bars rather than safe in her cowboy's arms…
A Cowboy to Keep by Karen Rock is a Harlequin Heartwarming book that combines sweet romance with light suspense. This book is a prequel to Ms. Rock’s upcoming Rocky Mountain Cowboys series, coming this November. There was a lot of action packed into this book.
Jackson Cade, Bounty Hunter, finds himself at Mountain Sky Dude Ranch, chasing down Bill Reno, better known as “Smiley”. Jack is being chased by his own demons. He feels guilty and has dedicated his life to finding his younger brother’s killers. Jesse was killed related to his drug use, and Jack has never forgiven himself for not protecting him. Though Jack is supposed to be heading up his family’s ranch, he refuses to allow himself anything good in his life…since his brother cannot experience anything anymore. Jack received a slash to the face, causing a large scar, and he uses that to keep the world away.
Dani Crawford is the manager of Mountain Sky Dude Ranch. She has secrets of her own. Following the death of her mother many years before, she found herself acting out and got caught up with the wrong people. Though she didn’t intend to do anything wrong, she found herself right in the middle of some major trouble. When Jackson Cade shows up, she worries he is going to find out her secret. But she finds her secret harder and harder to keep as she begins to fall for Jack.
A Cowboy to Keep was such an enjoyable book. Between Dani’s past catching up to her, the chase for Smiley, and even more twists and turns, you will find yourself staying up late to finish this one. I liked the suspense and I really liked the romance. It was tender, sweet, and believable. If you like sweet, wholesome romance plus suspense, then you will enjoy A Cowboy to Keep by Karen Rock.

Sounds like a great read.
The cover is amazing!
Isn’t it?! Just perfect.
Thank you so much for this wonderful review, Brooke! I’m glad you liked the suspense and the romance- it’s always a challenge to make sure each part gets plenty of attention in the story. Here’s some behind the scenes: I wrote the book three times before I had it where I wanted it- and then of course it was revised, and edited, and…lol
You’re welcome, Karen! The third time is the charm! I’m so glad you worked that hard to get this awesome story out to the world. <3
Thanks for the post. Love the cover.
