Rocky Mountain Hero by Audra Harders. And what a delightful read it was! I downloaded it onto my Kindle, and read it in bed with the fire crackling in the fireplace nearby while a gentle rain fell onto the tin roof. Great ambiance for reading this great romance.
Back Cover Copy:
With a broken-down truck, miles to go and little money, single mother Melanie Hunter needs help. It comes in the handsome form of rancher Gabe Davidson. He'll pay for the three-week repair job and provide lodging for her and her boy--if she'll take coordinating the town barbecue off his busy hands. Melanie accepts, figuring she'll soon be on her way to her new life. But as she gets to know the kind townspeople--and the hardworking cowboy her son adores--she realizes she's found home. Now if only her Rocky Mountain hero will ask her to stay.
I have to say, I thought Gabe was breathtaking. He is a tough cowboy with a soft underbelly, who has a way with kids. Of course, as a mom, Melanie is drawn to such a handsome, caring guy who takes her son under his wing, spending precious time with him and becoming a hero in his eyes. Or should I say, a hero in her eyes too! There were some great romantic scenes, including one at the kitchen sink, involving a knife and a fish. Very unique and oh-so-sigh-worthy! There is great tension between Gabe and Melanie, and I am so glad I got to read their story. And...Gabe has two brothers who, I am hoping, need their own story! I am certainly looking forward to more books from this wonderful author!
