Peek Inside Tempting the Cowboy

After personal tragedy, ex-cop Rylan Frederickson takes a job on a dude ranch and finds herself attracted to the sexiest cowboy there... her boss. Letting a new woman into their lives is the last thing Cole Haywood wants for himself and his daughter, Birdie. But Rylan breathes new life into his family. When the sparks between them turn into fireworks in bed, Rylan’s torn between the family she’s lost and the one she may have found. Now she must decide if something that feels this good is worth the risk.

HOT COWBOY ALERT!

Tempting The Cowboy is the first book in the Paint River Ranch series, and my first book by Elizabeth Otto.

There wasn’t a thing I didn’t like about this book. What with 3 cowboy brothers, Cole, Tucker and Levi (in the Marines right now), A cute 4 year old called Birdie, and a kic... ...more

I've been obsessing over cowboys for the past couple of days for some unknown reason....And I am so glad that I came across this read in my craving.

*I received a free ARC of Tempting the Cowboy from Entangled Publishing LLC via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review*

So sweet, heart-breaking, original, and well written. Two characters burned by their past experiences, but who might just dare to try to open their heart once more.

By Jae July 07, 2014

It was great until the end part.

I felt that the heroine forgave the hero too easily for his stupid behavior. Make him bleed first before you take him back. Always.

No blood shed 4STARS. On to book #2 next. ...more

By Gloria August 04, 2016

I am in love with a cowboy. Cole is every romance reader's dream. He is honest, straight forward, rich and handsome. Rylan is lucky to have run into him ...it was fate. I love this story of struggle and understanding. This is a passionate love story full of patience and compassion.

By Shirley October 22, 2013

This was a surprisingly great story to read. I certainly was not expecting the level of emotions that were brought to the page, nor the steamy chemistry between the characters.

Elizabeth Otto did a great job of drawing me into the story by making Rylan and Cole's first meeting crackle with tension... ...more

It was really good. You felt for the characters when they both suffered their pain and they even made a very believable couple, even if, originally she was the" hired help".

This is the first book that I have read by Elizabeth Otto---I started and finished in same day---one of those you don't want to put down until the end books.

Once again, Elizabeth Otto has pulled me in with full force. First off, I've never liked cowboys until now.

This book is one of the only books that has made me cry while reading it. I'm *pretty sure* PMS played a factor, but it was beautifully written and had real emotional depth. And HAWT! *phew* Otto is a writer who is compulsively readable, and with talent like this, is definitely here to stay.

By Kayti September 22, 2013

This book was so much more than a typical romance- I laughed out loud, and I cried a TON. The characters are so nuanced, and their interactions are fraught with real-life details. I adored this book, and can't wait for more Paint River Ranch. ...more

About the author

USA Today Best Selling Author

Elizabeth Otto

Elizabeth Otto grew up in a Wisconsin town the size of a postage stamp, where riding your horse to the grocery store, and skinny dipping after school were perfectly acceptable. No surprise that she writes about small communities and country boys. She's the author of paranormal and hot, emotional, contemporary romance, and has no guilt over frequently making her readers cry. When not writing, she works full-time as an Emergency Medical Technician for a rural ambulance service. Elizabeth lives with her very own country boy and their three children in, shockingly, a small Midwestern town.
