You take a city newspaper girl, a good looking cowboy who wants nothing to do with reporters and you have the makings of a clashing of wills. Then throw in a bit or attraction and chemistry on both sides - watch out.
Such is the BETTING ON HOPE by Debra Clopton. Debra knows her cowboy's as this is the eighth book along with two novellas she's written about them.
Maggie Hope writes a column for a newspaper and when her friend and reporter is sick she gets roped into doing and interview with Tru Monahan Tru is a champion horse rider, trainer and according to the tabloids, a ladies man.
During the interview a challenge is thrown out that the powers that be jump on. Tru's sponsors and Maggies network and newspaper see it as a "win-win" and leave them both now way out.
Will the chemistry win out? Will they be able to let go of their fears and trust enough to fall in love?
This is a charming book and I enjoyed and would recommend.
I received Betting on Hope from Thomas Nelson Publishers free for an honest review.
