I love all of Ruth Cardello' s Books and she didn't disappoint with Gentling the Cowboy. Sarah decides she needs to find herself, so takes up her friend's offer to stay and work at her family Ranch for the summer. After driving for days she ends up at the wrong Ranch in Texas, then to find out her friend's offer doesn't still stand. The Ranch she ended up at was Tony, whom keeps himself away from people, even associating with them because of his past. Tony was a famous horse trainer, that deep down had a great heart, he just locked it up, he was funny, strong, stubborn, protective, he could be difficult, but could be sexy, charming and supportive. This was a great read that kept be completely enthralled. Gentling the Cowboy was funny, touching, hot and steamy, just an all-around great read. I can't wait for more books by Ruth Cardello.
