When widower and land baron Cole Reardon acquired the Turner Grain Corporation, he didn’t know the company sponsored a bull rider. He refuses to support thrill-seekers dumb enough to get on the back of a crazed animal. He’s not willing to risk his fortune and livelihood when he has his daughter’s well-being to consider. Not even when the bull rider is the sexiest woman he’s ever seen.
Bull rider Florentine McDougal plans to turn pro after the season championship, fulfilling her lifelong dream of succeeding in a man’s world. That is, until Cole Reardon shows up and threatens to break his sponsorship contract with her. Now everything she’s worked for is less than eight seconds away from being destroyed.
Cole distracts Florentine with his sexy mouth and unreasonable demands, and he’s not going to compromise his integrity. But she’s not going to let him loose until she has pro status. And neither will come away from this dust-up unscathed.
I have to say I love Entangled Publishing. Not only is their staff amazing to work with, but the work they are putting out there is top quality.
When a tour came up for Rodeo Rebel by Debra Kayn, I had to think about taking it. I’ve only seen a rodeo once, I’ve ridden a horse once and sadly fell down an embankment, and I haven’t been on a farm in years. Not to mention, I don’t come across a lot of “rodeo” novels in my reading.
I gave in, signed up and am so thankful I did. Rodeo Rebel, isn’t just about the rodeo, but about finding oneself after massive heartache. It’s about letting go of the walls people put up to protect themselves and allowing others in.
I was so taken with the characters of Florentine and Cole. Each character had demons, but neither allowed those to define who they were. They were solidly written and I found myself urging both of them to make a jump. All the characters were funny, heartfelt and not forced upon you.
As for the rodeo parts – very exciting and exhilarating. I don’t remember much of the one rodeo I did attend, but I do think I’d like to go again. The way Kayn describes her character’s emotions made it seem like I was there in the stands watching, very well done.
