Synopsis: Dusty doesn't fear the feisty bull...but his owner's another story.
Dusty O’Donovan, an accomplished bull rider, isn’t afraid to ride El Diablo, a feisty stud whose owner, Zach McCray, is offering $500,000 to anyone who can stay on him for a full eight seconds. Though Zach refuses to let a woman ride his bull, he's intrigued by the headstrong Dusty, who he last saw when he was thirteen and she was six. Sparks fly when they’re together, but will Dusty’s secrets tear them apart?
Review: Dusty O’Donovan had a lot of hardship in her life, but she’s grown into a beautiful woman who is a barrel racer and “bull-whisperer”. When she and her brother Sam show up at a rodeo run by the McCray family, she sees El Diablo – a bull with a $500,000.00 purse for riding 8 seconds on his back. Her family’s ranch is in financial straits and that money would go a long way to help. However, the owner, Zach McCray doesn’t want her on his bull – he wants her in his bed. Having coming a long way from when they knew each other before, Dusty’s got her share of secrets…but will they keep Zach away?
Though it had been 20 years since they’d seen each other, the sparks between Dusty and Zach flew like fireworks. Ivy League Cowboy is a steamy read, but with a deep emotional component as well. Fast-paced and sensual, this story is a nice rainy-day read while you’re snuggled up next to your partner.
