Loneliness Will Take a Man Places…
Jesse Garahan has plenty of Irish charm, but having had his heart demolished twice, he’s sworn off women forever. Until the fateful day he meets Danielle Brockway and her tiny daughter on their way to their new home in Pleasure, Texas.
But There May Be Places He Doesn’t Want To Go…
Fiercely protective of her little girl, Danielle isn’t about to let Jesse get anywhere close enough to hurt either of them, no matter how much longing she sees in his eyes…
This beautiful love story will steal your heart as C.H. Admirand brings The Secret Life of Cowboys trilogy to a close. My favorite of the three Garahan novels, Jesse is an engaging romance with charming protagonists and an irresistible little cowgirl.
The youngest of the Garahan brothers, Jesse is recovering from a recent heartbreak. He is not looking for love, but Jesse falls hard for Danielle Brockway and her adorable daughter Lacy. Danielle is leery of getting involved with another cowboy but Jesse slowly works past her defenses and into her heart.
Jesse Garahan is a hardworking cowboy who has deep ties to the family ranch he works with his brothers. The three brothers love, work and play hard and do not hesitate to work out their differences with their fists. They are fiercely loyal to one another and they love pushing one another’s buttons. Jesse lives by a strict code of cowboy conduct and old fashioned values instilled in him by his grandfather. Like his brothers, Jesse is possessive of the woman he loves.
Danielle Brockway is a single mom starting her life over following her divorce. She settles easily into her new life with her uncle Jimmy while trying to plan where her life is going next. She is a dedicated mom who is very protective of her four year old daughter Lacy. Danielle is easily accepted by the Garahan clan and she forms quick friendships with Ronnie and Emily.
Lacy is a precocious little girl who loves all things cowboy and she is smitten with Jesse from their first meeting. Jesse is a natural with children and their scenes together are incredibly sweet.
With a little bit of matchmaking by Emily and Ronnie, Jesse and Danielle’s relationship easily transitions from friends to lovers. While Danielle is wary of getting involved with another cowboy, she does not let her concerns interfere with their romance. The chemistry between them is sizzling and their lovemaking is quite sensual.
Jesse is a fast-paced novel with true to life characters and a believable storyline. Close family ties and friendships add to the novel’s appeal. C.H. Admirand saved the best story for last and Jesse is a wonderful end to a touching series. Fans of contemporary westerns won’t want to miss this fabulous romance.
