Dallas-based private investigator Alexandra Donovan has concerns over her latest case because she cannot see a happy ending no matter what she learns. Her middle aged client Mrs. Helen Braxton believes former Professional Rodeo Cowboy Association star Brodie Hayes is her biological son abducted from a hospital just two days after she gave birth to him about four decades ago. The client wants the sleuth to find out all she can about Brodie¿s life past and present.--------------- Alex meets Brodie and both feel a strong attraction that neither anticipated as such desire has never hit them before. When he learns just who Alex is and the information about him she believes is the truth, he is overwhelmed because he now wonders just who Brodie Hayes truly is even as he knows one thing for certain, he loves Alex.--------------- ONCE A COWBOY is a terrific private investigative romance as the attraction between the professional sleuth and the retired professional rodeo participant is overwhelmed by her findings that she knew before hand would lead to someone being angry and disappointed and ready to shoot the messenger. Thus it is a stunned Brodie going through a form of the steps of grieving while also schizoid like falling in love with the bearer of bad news. Linda Warren¿s latest contemporary into a must read family drama.----------- Harriet Klausner

    Horrible

    ## This book was awful! Doesn't matter if it was free, I can never get back those 3 hours. The "hero" was a complete ass. He kept telling the heroine to "go away, leave me alone, i never want to see you again". But she was so weak, she kept showing up, over and over.....it got so old. Then after about 100 pgs into the story, they finally get together and he tells her WHILE they are having sex "practice makes perfect" about rolling on the condom and "I don't have enough fingers to count all the women I've been with." True or not, only an insensitive jerk would say these things at that moment. I would've kicked this guy to the curb. In addition to that, about a third of the book is about the heroine's grandmother and has no bearing on the story whatsoever. UGH!!!

    Not good at all

    Contrived and predictable plot, flat characters, conclusion that I just couldn't buy. Wish I could get those hours of my life back.
