Overview

Two wary hearts ...
Janice Combes has two loves, bucking bulls and Dirk Knowlton. But Dirk only has eyes for a dazzling rodeo queen. How can Janice ever compete while mired ankle-deep in manure? Exchanging playful banter with Dirk is all Janice can expect-until the stormy night he knocks on her door dripping wet and needing a place to crash.

Different Dreams...
Dirk Knowlton is living the cowboy dream. Life should be good-roping, branding, backing broncs, riding bulls, but there's a void he can't seem to fill. After getting hung up by a bull, he wonders if this is really the life he wants. Restless and rebellious, he bolts...but there's a certain cowgirl he can't forget.

When a battle-scarred Dirk returns to his Montana ranch he's determined to hang on at any cost. Janice has come back home to lick her own wounds. When old dreams turn to dust, can two wary hearts take another chance on love?

Vane's second Hot Cowboy Nights contemporary Western (after Slow Hand) is an over-the-top story with more tragedy than romance. Country girl Janice Combes has idolized rodeo star Dirk Knowlton for years, but he doesn't seem to return her feelings. Nonetheless, he's willing to be seduced, and Janice gladly relinquishes her virginity. After another bull rider has a fatal accident, Dirk heads to California and the Marine Corps, leaving Janice alone to handle the unexpected consequences of their encounter. Over the next 14 years, Vane throws every possible crisis into her story—an abusive spouse, drug addiction, war injuries, and more—until it feels less like a love story than a Greek tragedy. When both Janice and Dirk return home to Montana to lick their wounds, readers will want to root for them, but the romance is overshadowed by the anticipation of the next devastating event and the concern that both protagonists may not survive long enough to get a happy ending. Agent: Jessica Alvarez, BookEnds. (Feb.)
