Blog Tour -- Cowboy Passion ~V~

Book: Cowboy Passion — Bakersville Saga 5 & 6
Author: Helen Hardt 
Genre: Contemporary Romance/Cowboy


Treasuring Amber
Kissing handsome rancher Harper Bay to avoid a confrontation with her past isn’t on Amber Cross’s “to do” list, but sometimes a situation calls for desperate measures. She doesn’t expect the kiss to leave her breathless.
Amber is the hottest thing walking but clearly not Harper’s type. Nope, he’s not looking for a platinum blonde manicurist from the city, even if she is Bakersville’s reigning rodeo queen. After her surprising kiss leaves him panting, he changes his mind and decides to get to know her. Chemistry sizzles between them, but this gorgeous woman has a past that could get them both killed.

Trusting Sydney
Sam O’Donovan is bored with his stale life in Montana. When his brother-in-law offers him a great job and a cut of the McCray Ranch in Bakersville, Colorado, he’s ecstatic. This is the change he needs. As for beautiful Sydney Buchanan resurfacing? That’s icing on the cake.
Sydney’s back in Bakersville for one reason and one reason only. She needs to win as many large rodeo purses as she can to help her parents run their struggling ranch in Nevada. She doesn’t bank on running into Sam O’Donovan. All the sparks they shared five years earlier are still there, but so much else has changed. If only Sam could understand the decisions she made during their time apart…and trust her.

In reading this last installment, I had high aspirations for both Amber and Sam.  And I have to say, I loved Amber's story.  The past that she ran from, the life she has striven for and achieved is nothing short of amazing.  The fact that she finds her happy ending (in more than one capacity) was definitely my favorite part.

There was plenty of heartfelt moments along with some action as well as suspense.  It's worth the read for her story alone.  Now, of course no story in this series would be complete without running into the rest of the characters...the flow is flawless.

Now, Sam.
Sam was a little more difficult for me. His story felt rushed and jumbled. Between him and Sydney, and her parents along with his sister and her family...there was the fluidity but not flame for me. I felt it was "I love you, can't live without you, get in my bed" one minute and "There is no way we are ever getting back together" in the next.

That is too much for my poor, romantic heart.

Just like in all the stories before, Sam gets his happily ever after.
His just wasn't my favorite.

Praise for Helen Hardt:
Helen Hardt writes as smooth as a hot knife cutting through butter. Her
words take you away and you feel like you are watching the story play out
right in front of you.

~Delightfully Dirty Reads~
Ms. Hardt has a way of writing that makes me forget I’m reading a book.
It’s more like slipping into a world she created and getting lost for a while.
~Whipped Cream Reviews~
Flawlessly written and in my opinion a work of art…
