"This tale will melt even the iciest heart." -Publishers Weekly, STARRED review for A Cowboy Firefighter for Christmas

He's all the heat she'll ever need.
Lauren Sheridan's return to Wildcat Bluff after the death of her husband is bittersweet. Thirteen years have passed since she set foot in the place that's always held her heart...and the sizzling memories of her high school sweetheart.

Kent Duval has it all. A proud rancher and volunteer firefighter in the small town of Wildcat Bluff, he's missing only one thing from his life: passion. Kent last saw Lauren Sheridan when she was sweet sixteen and they were head-over-heels in love. Now she's back, spunky daughter in tow, and he no longer knows which way is up. As the heat between them builds, Kent can't help but wonder if past flames can be rekindled and second chances really do exist.

11/14/2016
Redford tries hard to create romantic tension in this contemporary rural Texas romance, but Lauren Sheridan, a recent widow returning to her small-town roots, and Kent Duval, a successful rancher and volunteer fireman with a Ph.D. (and painted-on, stereotypical Comanche heritage), are stereotypical stuff of “hot, sweaty dreams” that here never quite become convincing reality. Wildcat Bluff, Tex., is a sanitized version of a prairie cowtown that’s never seen a drought or a drop in cattle prices, and the many secondary figures who surround Lauren and Kent in their mating dance are likewise familiar. When they reunite years after their adolescent romance, sparks predictably flare up, fueled by memories of wild teenage kisses in the bed of Kent’s pickup. But Redford doesn’t seem able to conjure up convincing obstacles to reigniting that fire, instead relying on gushy sentimentality, as when Lauren’s four-year-old daughter, Hannah, meets Kent and shrieks, “Cowboy Daddy!” Readers will long for sizzle, but all that’s here is damply smoldering kindling.

Lauren Sheridan left town thirteen years ago and never looked back, which makes returning home now a little hard, she left loved ones behind and now she must face them and hope they'll let her back into their lives. After unexpectedly losing her husband, she didn't really have a reason to stay and keep up with the life they created, so she decided home might be the best place for her and her daughter to start over. And once their are there things start falling right back into place, even her friendship with the man she left behind... Thirteen years ago Kent Duval watched the love of his young life walk away and never look back, and through the years he's dated others, but she's always seems to find a way back into his thoughts. He's often wondered about her, wondered what they could have been if she stayed, but that's all in the past right? The minute I started this charming little read I was hooked and craving more, these two endearing characters pulled me into their world and commanded my attention. I was completely won over by their witty one liners, quirky southern charm, down to earth personalities, and passion fueled banter. I highly recommend you give this read a try, it is one of those reads that will have you blushing one moment and laughing out loud the next, and is certain to leave you with an overall feeling complete literary satisfaction! I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this title.
