Sadie Higgins’ has helped her brother Connor out of more jams than she cares to admit. Sure, he’s a chemistry genius, but he is always attaching himself to the wrong people. Now he’s the brains behind a meth operation and has become addicted to his own product. To support his drug habit, he and his buddies start stealing Kendrick’s herds.

When Rory finds out who is responsible he wants restitution. Sadie will do anything to protect her brother and goes to work in the Kendrick household as a cook to compensate for the lost cattle.

Yet she doesn’t count on falling in love with the handsome cowboy, and now she must make a choice between the family bound to her by blood and the family she wants to have.

Readers will love Ryan’s fascinating, complex, earthy characters, whether it’s the loyal Sadie or the rugged, sexy Ryan. These are people Ryan’s readers will undoubtedly relate to. But the author’s knack for writing crisp, realistic dialogue makes this suspenseful story so engaging.

Although this is a romance, it is first and foremost a tale about family and just how far we will go to protect those we love. With Stone Cold Cowboy, Ryan hits a home run that fans of the genre will undoubtedly enjoy.
