When Brody McAllister set out on a task he has done since his youth—driving longhorns along the trail from Texas to Kansas—the last thing he expected to find along the way is a beautiful woman dressed in men’s clothing. The tale of her brother depositing her in the untamed land, alone and hungry, has him fired up and ready to do whatever he has to do to see to her safety.
Finding herself abandoned in the middle of nowhere was bad enough for Brianna Wallace. She was used to city life, but that’s not the worst of her worries. She is a vampire. When a handsome cattle driver literally scoops her up and takes her along on his journey, Bri fights to keep her heart and her secret to herself, but loses both battles. The sudden reappearance of her brother to force her aid in his return to New York threatens to solve her Brody dilemma by taking her away and most likely, ending her life. Either way, she may never see Brody again.
McEntire does a fine job with this love story. Who doesn’t love a good vampire romance? Throw in a handsome cowboy and I am a happy woman.
Brianna is a delightfully innocent vampire who has suffered the loss of her father/creator at the hands of a murderous brother who left her all alone in the wilderness to die. Barely surviving on her own, Briana becomes infatuated with a handsome and thoughtful cowboy even while knowing they can never have a future together.
Brody is a cattleman out on the range driving cattle when he comes across a beautiful woman alone. All of his protective instincts spring to life around Briana. Why is she traveling alone? How can he leave her? Brody feels strongly for Briana and wants to ask her to stay with him, but doesn’t think he’s good enough for her. Surely a dignified woman such as herself would want a man who can traipse her about to all the society functions.
A great book, I hope there’s a sequel.
