Well, speaking of Gerard Butler… let me get to what this post is supposed to be all about. I think he would be a rather good fit for what the rodeo cowboy in Denise Hunter’s A Cowboy’s Touch would look like… and do to a girl on the inside—except with a Texas accent instead of a Scottish one.
Denise Hunter is pretty much the only contemporary romance author that I read. I write historical romance myself, so I usually try to completely inundate myself with books that are similar to what I want to produce. But I just cannot stop reading Denise Hunter’s books! Who knows maybe this fascination I have with her talent will even spur me on to write my own contemporary romance someday. I’ve already started thinking more about writing a Regency romance too—thanks to Jamie Carie!
But again, and with great skill, Denise Hunter brings her antagonist (journalist, Abigail Jones) and her protagonist (ex-rodeo cowboy, J.W. Ryan) together while they each struggle through their emotional and spiritual bondage that threatens to keep them apart. I almost expected more complexities—but that is probably because of my recent ventures into two of Denise Hunter’s other books, Surrender Bay and Driftwood Lane.
I give A Cowboy’s Touch 4 stars.
I'm reading Denise Hunter's second book in this "Big Sky Romance" series (The Accidental Bride) right now (on my new Kindle!!! Yay!!!). I'm about 68% of the way through it and am LOVING it so far!!!
