A MALLOYS OF MONTANA NOVEL
Wild Horses Couldn’t Drag Him Away From Her
Raised beneath the big Montana sky, Matt Malloy was never meant to be a jet-setting businessman. But he’ll do anything to protect the family ranch he shares with his brothers. Coming home after a two-week trip to Italy, Matt wants nothing more than to shed his suit and tie for a well-worn pair of jeans and ride his horse up to the cabin for some alone time. The last thing he needs is a big-city lawyer invading his privacy-even if she is the most beautiful woman he’s ever seen . . .
Vanessa Kettering has devoted her life to her work. As a passionate animal rights defender, she doesn’t have room for anything else. But from the moment she meets Matt, she’s taken with this rugged cowboy’s lazy smile and tender touch. When a raging storm traps them inside his cabin for the night, one steamy kiss leads to another, sweeping them away with a force that’s as wild and untamed as the land he loves. But when the morning light comes, will she lose her heart?
★ ★ ★ ★ ☆
Matt, the first book in R.C. Ryan’s new The Malloys of Montana series, is a classic contemporary romance novel. Matt and Vanessa meet and instantly are attracted to each other. Almost immediately, a circumstance arises that pushes them together. They slowly fall in love while trying to avoid the dangers advancing on them.
I really enjoyed Matt. The Montana scenery was beautiful and was a great backdrop for the story. Matt and Vanessa’s characters were well developed and had great chemistry. There was just enough suspense woven throughout the story to keep the reader on edge wondering what was going to happen next.
Contemporary romance readers who enjoy stories where a small town rancher falls in love with a big city girl are sure to love Matt.
