In The Cowboy Who Came Calling we have the second book in the Texas Heroes series. this book features a passionate and drama filled story that will definitely test your emotions and mood.
Our key players that take an active role are:
- Glory Day, our heroine, who is starting to lose her vision and having to take charge of her family with her father sick and in jail.
- Luke McClain, our hero, who is a ex Texas Ranger, he is on the hunt for a criminal that can clear his name.
Glory Day, is responsible for taking care of her family. With her father been arrested and sick in jail, her mother inconsolable, Glory is doing everything she can to take care of her mother and sisters. And soon their home is going to be foreclosed if they don’t come up with the funds. When Glory stumbles across a criminal with a high reward, she faces off with a mysterious cowoby who wants the same man for himself and he then gets shot in the crossfire.
At first these two aren’t a huge fan of each other, more on Glory’s side than on Luke. Despite the fact that Luke has been shot because of Glory, you would think that he would have more negative feelings toward Glory but he doesn’t. There is a strong attraction between them, but Glory is cynical and stubborn especially when it comes to the male species. I wouldn’t say I liked Glory at all. Her personality was a bit too rough for my liking. She is the first heroine from Linda Broday that I really struggled with in ways that I didn’t want to struggle but it kept happening, and she was way too stubborn for her own good.
I did however fall heavily for our hero, who is beyond honorable. Despite the way that Glory is so suspsicious of him and his actions, he tends to prove so kind and understanding and doesn’t judge her at all. I loved that about him, when he was way too nice for Glory in my opinion. I also admired how much he gives back to Glory and her family, in ways that he didn’t even need to but he did it because of his caring and affection for them and because he is a man of honor and I adored that.
There were many wonderful moments between these two, and I just loved the setting and the heroine dealing with being blind and the struggles that come along with that. The romance that built between these two was simply wonderful and once Glory overcame her stubborness and mistrust than their relationship really flourished and once that moment happens I didn’t want to put this one away. AN INTRIGUING ROMANTIC TALE IN THE AMERICAN WEST!!!
