“The Cowboy” by Margareta Osborn is book one in the “Hot Aussie Heroes” series. This is the story of Carina Chapman and Jake Richardson.
Carina wants to get away on a vacation to where she can relax and get away from her stressful life in New York. She is booked into a resort in Australia or so she thinks. When Carina arrives, she discovers that her assistant has booked her into the wrong resort.
Jake is a cowboy trying to start a rustic type of resort to save his land. He is overwhelmed with all the things that he is trying to get accomplished before his first guest arrives.
Carina who wanted a five-star retreat ends up being Jake’s first guest at his rustic not quite ready resort. Neither one is looking for a relationship, but the sparks do fly in more ways than one.
I really enjoyed Carina and Jake’s characters. This is a great quick read. The descriptions of the landscape and surroundings made you feel like you were there. Romance, humor, and chemistry make this a great way to escape and refresh from everyday life struggles.
I received a copy of this book from Tule Publishing for an honest review. FYI, contains mature content.
