She's all roses...
Playing good sport to appease her best friend was one thing, but sophisticated Kim Martin was hardly equipped for a Colorado camping trip. Especially when their mountain guide was a rough-edged cowboy who was as untamed as the wilderness. His outdoors style might jump-start some women but a strictly indoors woman like Kim found him - almost resistible.
He's rough-and-ready rawhide...
Thad Winchester's patience for city women was wearing as thin as the seat of his jeans. But there was something about Kim that was putting his hard-and-fast don't-touch rule to the test. The plucky blonde was just the woman to share his Flying W. Ranch. All Thad had to do was bring out the wildflower in the refined beauty, and convince her that he was her man. Bar nothing.
Kim Martin is a high maintenance, uppity, and a bit snobby woman who knows what she wants and doesn’t back down, ever. Her dream man is all class, so how could it be that suddenly she’s attracted to the rugged cowboy Thad Winchester, who is possibly more stubborn then her?
The book had a slow start but the engaging storyline soon lead into a great love/hate relationship between two people who are completely bullheaded and so stubborn you want to yell at them through the book. The tension between the characters was so thick you could cut it with a knife. The author painted a picture with every word and as a reader, you can clearly see the Colorado mountains, the horse trails, and the camp they set up. Kim came off as a whiny spoiled brat a few times, but had redeeming qualities too.
All-in-all, “Rawhide and Roses” was an enjoyable read.
