Description

Still waters run deep . . .

From the moment Roan Taggart picked up the pretty redhead at the Jackson Hole airport, his training and experience told him she was spooked. She’s left New York City to visit the Wind River Ranch, where Roan is a wrangler, and just as he can pick up a horse’s mood, he can feel the tension coming off her body. And that vulnerability is triggering all his protective instincts. . .

Shiloh Gallagher likes the gray-eyed cowboy’s dry humor—and the Special Forces background that lends him a stoic, powerful presence. But she’s been scarred by trauma and her mother’s murder . . . and knows a strong man can be dangerous. She came to wide-open Wyoming to flee a threat that’s left her unable to write her novels. Now, as she rides horses with Roan and helps him build an isolated cabin, she’s slowly letting down her guard. But danger has followed her west, and they won’t have a future together unless they defeat a killer from her past. . .

From Publishers Weekly

Jun 20, 2016 – McKenna’s captivating first Wind River contemporary shows that opposites do attract as a war-weary cowboy meets a New York City author. Shiloh Gallagher has had writer’s block for the past six months, ever since she was spooked by a stalker. She decides to visit a friend of her mother’s at her Wyoming ranch, Wind River. There is just one catch: Shiloh must reside in an employee’s cabin with Roan Taggart, the hunky, stoic cowboy who picked her up at the airport. Roan, a former Special Forces sergeant, exudes power, and his gentleness and caring toward Shiloh surprises and appeals to her. As she opens up to him about her past, which includes seeing her stepfather murder her mother, Roan begins to care for her even more, but they’re both uncertain about the possibility of their mutual attraction evolving into a life-changing relationship. When Shiloh’s stalker tracks her to Wyoming, Roan promises to do everything he can to keep her safe. The ever-present sensuality is a magnetic force that propels the novel forward amid simmering suspense.

Customer Reviews

picturesque and beautifully visual tale

Wind River Wrangler is a slow building romance that will tug at your heart strings.

Shiloh knows someone is out to get her and no one believes her. Well, no one but her mother’s old friend…who offers Shiloh a place at her ranch to get away.

Roan is a ranch hand who knows immediately that Shiloh is a woman that he will have to treat with kid gloves. Her vulnerability instantly triggers all his protective instincts.

Neither new the threat was going to follow Shiloh. With Roan’s past military training and Shiloh’s gut instincts Shiloh might just survive.

McKenna pens a picturesque and beautifully visual tale of a slow building love story. Some suspense, some action and a connection that can be denied all make for the perfect read to cozy up with a cup of tea by the fire.

I received this ARC copy of Wind River Wrangler from Kensington - Zebra in exchange for a honest review.

Great read

*3.5 stars* I'm a bit torn on this one. I did enjoy the overall story. It was like it was a two part story. First we had a romance. It was a nice slow build on the romance side. Then the suspense came into it. Which also was enjoyable but I think the two parts could have been blended a bit better. It was very drawn out. I enjoy good descriptive writing but this one had almost too much which slowed the pace of the story. It was nice to read a story were the hero wanted more than just a fling and the female was the one who was hesitant to commit. Roan was a wonderful strong willed alpha but he was also very perceptive. Shiloh had a life filled with trauma and now with someone stalking her she was unsure exactly who she could trust and lean on. Roan proved very quickly he was worth her trust. Together they were able to find her stalker and keep her safe.

A good read and one I would recommend with the caveat that there are some parts that can be skimmed over.

Enjoyable beginning to a series

I loved this story. There are some dark moments, but most of the story is light, family oriented, building and showing strength of character as Shiloh overcomes some of her fears. Roan is the perfect man as he controls his desires while protecting Shiloh. Their love sort of sneaks up on them. I highly recommend this story, and I look forward to the next in the series.

I received a copy of this book through Netgalley, and this is my unsolicited review.
