Tina Welling's: Cowboys Never Cry
Cowboys are not Cassie's weakness...until
the most famous cowboy on the planet sets his boots in her
path. In truth, Robbin's far different from the image he
projects. Disillusioned with fame, he has retreated to his
dad's ranch to reconnect with the land and people he loves...and
something about Cassie stirs deeper changes than he'd bargained
As much as Cassie tries to avoid Robbin,
she's drawn to his struggle to become a better man. Are
they about to play out a classic romance, with the glorious
Teton mountains as a backdrop? Or will their notions of
each other prove as false as the cowboy mystique once the
charm has worn off?
