    Kathleen Eagle has done it again!!

    This eBook courtesy of NetGalley and Harlequin. Favorite quote: ¿THE NAME¿S COUGAR. JUST COUGAR. ONE NAME IS ENOUGH.¿ Behind the bravado was a complex man. War hero. ¿Indian cowboy.¿ Walking wounded in search of answers. Cougar needed to build a new life, and he¿d start with what he loved most. Horses. Which brought him to the Double D Wild Horse Sanctuary. And into the orbit of ranch volunteer Celia Banyon and her very special son. The boy had suffered an unspeakable accident, and his mother felt unspeakable guilt. But something about Cougar brought her back from the brink. He represented her chance to be a woman again. Now, suddenly, one name wasn¿t enough for what they could have if they¿d just let themselves. Healing. Love. Family. Forever. In fact, the possibilities were endless¿ I love Kathleen Eagle's books and she's done it again with this one! Cougar is one of the best heroes I've read in a while, he has lots of problems but he isn't afraid to admit them and he's definitely working on them. He has a big heart because as many problems as he has to work on he doesn't back down from helping others too. I love watching the connection develop between him and Mark and Flyboy. Cougar is afraid to take a chance with Celia; he's unsure of what he'll do, but the appeal of a lovely woman, a kindred soul in the body of a horse, and a wonderful little boy just might be what's needed to heal them all. Celia suffers terrible guilt over Mark's accident. She also suffers the pain of custody visits by her ex, who she knows is fighting for a big settlement to be gotten by his ambulance chasing attorney. The less she sees of her ex, the better off both she and Mark will be. So if you want to read a feel good romance with a wonderful cowboy hero this is for you!

    Kathleen never disappoints!

    One Brave Cowboy by Kathleen Eagle
    Harlequin Special Edition, Oct. 2011

    Once again, Kathleen Eagle doesn't disappoint. This story will grip your heart and hold tight to the end.
    Wounded warrior, Indian cowboy, Cougar comes home to South Dakota from the war in search of answers. But home is no longer what it was. Horse therapy, his love of wild horses and his need of a new start bring him to the Double D Wild Horse Sanctuary.
    There he buys a wild mustang and meets teacher Cecelia, a divorcee survivor of domestic abuse, and her son, Mark a deaf-mute child who lost an eye in a horrible accident. Mark instantly bonds with Cougar and the mustang he names, Flyboy. Cougar's deal to exchange building repairs for space for his trailer and horse seems ideal for them all.
    But Cecelia's jealous ex-husband causes trouble. How they deal with him and how Mark and Cougar bond with each other and the horse and thus begin to heal make a heartwarming story. Then Kathleen throws in love between Cougar and Cecelia to make a special story great.

    Wonderful Read

    Cougar was looking for a place to heal. He was wounded badly in war and came home to find out his younger brother had sold his horses. That was another wound to his heart.

    Ms. Eagle does an excellent job of combining several issues into her story: war trauma, spousal abuse, an abused and traumatized child, and horse therapy. She wends Indian history in the story through the Native American characters she has in the story. Her plot is real, the story flows well, and you immediately empathize with Celia who is trying to avoid her ex-husband and protect her son. She makes her male character strong in character and body both, and soon he's trying to run interference.

    The Double D Wild Horse Sanctuary is a sanctuary for the people there as well the horses. Cougar knows horses (as does the author based on her writing) and he has hopes the works will sooth his war wounds and help him recover. The young boy who acts as if he's deaf and mute also loves the horses, even if he feels Celia is a bit overprotective. Most moms are.
    Personally, I would have been a little rougher on the ex-husband. However, how the author handles it is the best solution.

    This is an easy read that is very entertaining. I enjoyed the Indian cowboy touch, and how the author ended the story. It's fun to read such a satisfying story.

    Why not snag a copy of this book and hang out with the wounded warriors and the pretty horses? You won't regret it.

    GOOD romance

    In One Brave Cowboy you meet Cougar first when he almost runs over a little boy but he sense him and is able to stop. Cougar is going to adopt a wild mustang and train him and enter this contest. Cougar got out of the service with a purple heart and has flashbacks he is trying to get back to a normal life and get off the pain pills. He knows horses and was in a therapy with them in VA Hospital.
    The Double D ranch has a lot of volunteers to take care of the wild mustangs. They get trainers to train the horses for a cash prize and sell the horses after trained.
    One volunteer at the ranch is Celia banyon who is a school teacher and her son Mark. Mark lost one eye in a accident and since then he does not hear or speak. But the animals and time is starting to help.
    Cougar after saving Mark takes a liking to the boy. Cougar is wounded to. Cougar lives in truck and horse trailer. So he ends up fixing Celia house and corral and parking using her water and electricty.
    Mark names the Mustang Flyboy same name thats on his little airplane. Its a sign that he is hearing some and understanding now.flyboy and Mark are connecting nonverbally. Flyboy eats out of his hand after he went over the fence before any one could stop him.
    It was a good book. Made me want a horse though I can't ride. I believe animals can make a difference in our lives if we let them. As my dog sitting on my foot right now. I will read more books by Kathleen Eagle. I was given this ebook in exchange for honest review.
