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?
In this brand new series by RC Ryan we get to meet the Malloy family. The cast of characters is pretty big in size and mostly male. Matt Malloy is the oldest of three brothers. When his parents died in a car accident he changed from a carefree 12 year old boy to a responsible young man who looks out for his younger brothers and eventually the entire ranch. When his grandmother asks him to meet a lawyer to discuss the wild horse's on their ranch he of course accepts. Anything for his family. Vanessa Kettering might be a city lawyer but she doesn't have a city attitude. Her love of animals leads her into a career defending them and the Malloys. I loved the characters in this series. Of course you just get bits and pieces of the secondary characters in this book so there is much to look forward to in future books. Matt is this bigger than life cowboys who took his family tragedy and instead of letting it be a negative influence on his life he made sure he was there for his family. He looked out for his brothers and did the best he could for his families ranch. There doesn't seem to be anything he can't do. Then Vanessa "Nessa" comes into his life and turns his life upside down. When her life is placed in danger he and his family step of to protect her. Loved this book. It's fast paced and full of sexy cowboys and the banter between the family is fun to watch. There is fun and drama and definitely some suspense. Exciting to the very last page.
