This is an awesome read, I just love the way this author writes, she does the family and like family feel so real sometimes you can feel that family tension in the air, but also the love and caring She also writes of the ranch life , letting you in on the hard work of the ranch and the work it takes to care for the animals and how deeply the Cowboy cares for his horse I have wanted to know Scott s story since I read the first book in the Frontier Montana series And I m so glad we get to look into his soul after he meet and fell in love with Katie Getting to know this couple was what made this book the five star read it is I recommend this book to adults who love to read Historical Western Romance. This felt like a novella And after the action at the very beginning I was expecting out of the ending All we got was the not so surprising confession he had which I pretty much guessed in the last book anyways Kinda sad because I liked both characters and the book felt like it was missing the last half of it Hope the next is better. A Frontier Montana seriesWow truly a wonderful read the characters the passion the romance the plot to the twist at the end I was gripped I was intrigued all the way through I have all the books in the series and can t wait to finish them Katie is feisty sassy strong and determined from the beginning she finds herself in trouble time after time even when she finally meets Scott then they both seem to find the problems together Scott can t hide his attractions to her As the story unfolds Scott s past secret emerges A must read. Oh how I loved A Cowboy s Temptation I couldn t put it down and now I m at the end I wish there were I loved Katie with her fierce passion and her determination to try new things snd prove her worth I loved Scott with his sense of decency and all the worries about his past that he kept bundled up tightly inside I loved the way these two pushed against each other one minute and fell on each other like starving men onto a roast dinner This story grabbed me on page one and held me all the way. The reader is swept back to Marietta , Montana of the past in this tale of Katie and Scott Good book to settle in on a cold evening to enjoy Ebook from Netgalley and publishers with thanks Opinions are entirely my own. Review to follow A Cowboy s Temptation by Michelle Beattie is a very good historical romance If you like cowboys, westerns and stories from the 1800 this is a story for you It s situated in the fictional town of Marietta in Montana Great place for a western. I cried while reading and enjoying A Cowboy s Temptation by Michelle Beattie Although this is the second book in her Frontier Montana series, it is a standalone story Anything you need to know from the first book is explained in detail in this one This is a story of two strangers who need to confront their pasts before being able to move forward to create a life together After losing control as passion hits while Scott and Katie wait out a rain storm, he is determined to marry her in order to make her an honest women Katie, with her desire for adventure, is not happy She s determined to prove that she has matured as she reconciles with her estranged sister However, Katie s adventures on the journey to Marietta include her stagecoach being robbed, left destitute, having to walk five miles, and later framed for a theft that lands her in jail, doesn t exactly demonstrate the new leaf she turned over Scott has worked hard to become a strong, responsible, hard working cowboy who always does the right thing Yet, no matter how tough he might be he fears he will lose everything and everyone if they learn of his past.This was a truly wonderful, fun and entertaining story with very likeable and authentic characters that you want to cheer on, hoping for that happy ending The characters were well written with complex characteristics The story line was riveting and kept my attention to the very end I enjoyed reading this book and had trouble putting this book down, reading it in one day I am truly looking forward to the next entry in this series I highly recommend this book to other readers.I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
