Summary : I'd recommend this novel to fans of contemporary romance with lots of heat, especially if they like themselves a cowboy.
Wanted! is the first book of Vicki Lewis Thompson’s Sons of Chance series of novels. It tells the story of Nick Chance, a vet who also part-owns the ranch he works for and on. Officially speaking, his brother is in charge, but Nick is the one who makes sure their precious horses are healthy and cared for. He loves his work, but he’ll also muck in and help around the ranch when necessary.
He’s doing one such non-veterinary task when he catches sight of a woman who’s pointing a camera at him. She’s gorgeous, and as the ranch isn’t exactly on the tourist trail, he assumes she’s there for a reason. Striking a couple of poses, Nick then gets talking to the photographer. There’s an attraction between the two of them, and before long, against both their better judgements, they act on that attraction.
Things quickly grow complicated when Nick learns that the photographer, a woman he now knows to be called Dominique Jeffries, is staying at the ranch as there’s no more room in the local guest house. So they’re going to be seeing a great deal more of each other over the coming days. The two of them, realising their predicament, decide that what happened should be a one-off, and they’ll never speak of it again.
However, the spark between them won’t be so easily ignored. When circumstances throw them together again, can they resist?
I haven’t read too many cowboy novels, but Wanted! has definitely made me want to read more, especially in this series. Thompson writes great characters, especially the sexy men, and builds up tension brilliantly. I very much enjoyed this book – the plot, the writing style, the characters and the hot sex scenes. I’d recommend this novel to fans of contemporary romance with lots of heat, especially if they like themselves a cowboy.Powered by Sidelines
