A Knight in Cowboy Boots (McKnight, #1) by Suzie Quint

Maddie had no idea how many laws she’d broken in the last week. They all paled next to kidnapping. Since she’d been advised not to leave the state, she was pretty sure having temporary custody wouldn’t get her anywhere in court. Not that it mattered. She’d never get to court. She’d die before she gave Jesse up.

Maddie and her baby nephew, Jesse, are on the run from his father and the man who murdered her sister and her boyfriend. She heads to her boyfriend’s home in Galveston only to run into a charming cowboy named Zach who she shoots over a misunderstanding. To Maddie’s joy and distress, the attraction is instant and the passion is hot and heavy, but the murderer could find her any time and, unfortunately, she has to leave Zach and this town soon.

People were killed every day because they were in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Zach has fallen head over heels for Maddie and her nephew, but is she “one of the damaged strays” that his sister says he likes to rescue? He can protect her from the dangers that she fears, but how can he get her to stay with him?

I became a fan of Suzie Quint this year after reading Liar, Liar: The Omnibus which was a very fun and entertaining romantic mystery. So when I found out she had written a sexy cowboy romance series, I had to give the first one a try and it didn’t disappoint. It is enjoyable to see Zach gradually melt Maddie’s defenses to the point where she wants to protect him as much as he wants to protect her. Of course, one cannot forget the delightful McKnight clan who I’m sure will appear in #2 of the series. If you like romance series with hot, sexy, heart-melting cowboys, delicious innuendos and quips, and a mystery thrown in, check this one out.

Finding the happy ending for the people who inhabit her worlds is the best job anyone could have. Getting to share them with others… It doesn’t get any better than that.
