Come home to Topaz Falls, Colorado where a down-on-her-luck bull rider falls for the cowboy she can't resist in this heart-warming western romance!

As a champion barrel racer, Charity Stone has learned to hold her own in the male-dominated rodeo world. There's no cowboy she can't handle...except for one. Officer Dev Jenkins has made it clear he doesn't look at her like one of the guys. He's caught her attention but Charity doesn't do relationships--especially not with a cowboy. When she suddenly finds herself in charge of her thirteen-year-old nephew, who's had a few brushes with the law, Charity has no choice but to ask for the deputy's help.
Dev hasn't stopped fantasizing about Charity since she moved to Topaz Falls, but she's been hell bent on keeping her distance. When she comes to him for help with her nephew, he finally has the chance to make his move. Winning her over won't be easy, though--especially when her nephew's mistakes start to threaten his town. How can he do his job and still convince Charity he's the cowboy for her?

Colorado Cowboy will punch you right in the feels! Charity had a rough childhood and it has made her a hardened adult who is NOT looking for love. Dev is the local sheriff who has carried a torch for Charity, but even he has some past hurt. As if these two aren’t enough to get your feels feeling, add in Charity’s nephew who is abandoned by his mom (Charity’s sister) and in some legal trouble.

As a teacher, my heart went out to Brodie. I have seen students like him before: tough on the outside because they are guarding their extra wounded undersides. You can also see why Charity has such a rough exterior as well and again, my heart went out to her. I appreciated that the bond between Dev and Charity was on the slower burn side. Its like trying to approach a skittish horse-if you move to fast, they spook!

The story focuses on more than just the romance between Charity and Dev. There are some deep family dynamics that play a large part. This aspect of the plot is what will really make the story emotive for readers. Richardson does a great job of blending the romance and the family drama into a well paced plot. There were a few times when I felt the pace slowed just a bit, but I think that might just be my personal preference for suspense and mystery in my books.

About Sara Richardson

When I first heard the story of how my grandparents ran away in the middle of the night to elope, I was fascinated. They followed their hearts and found a love that most people only dream about. Years later, my grandfather loved my grandmother enough to stand by her side through immense heartache and suffering with their special bond somehow still intact.

Amazing stories like theirs have always inspired me to believe to in love. As a young girl, I kept a notebook that I called “The Book of Love.” On those tattered pages, I copied stories and poems and vignettes that helped me hold onto the hope that love could change things, that love could make life’s heartaches and disappointments bearable. Since then, I’ve seen true love change people and circumstances and hearts and lives. That’s the kind of love my stories explore. I use my experience as a mountain guide to write stories that incorporate adventure with romance. By trade I’m a writer, but I’m also a wife, a mother, a dreamer, a believer, a storyteller and an explorer.
