He's Just The Hired Help
What kind of cockeyed Pollyanna is Colin Cade working for? Her porch is rotting, her "guest cabin" is cheerless and her land and livestock have only a geriatric cowboy to care for them. Yet Hannah Shaw is positive she can turn her ranch into a successful B and B—and that Colin's the man to make it happen.
But Colin can't stick around. He lives with the loss of his family by avoiding the memories, and the way he feels around Hannah and her young son is like a knife to the heart. Trouble is, he's better at ignoring his own pain than someone else's, and bright, cheerful Hannah has a heart as haunted as his own. She deserves to be happy—but could she really be with him?

This is Colin's story. But if you have not read the first two books in the series don't worry it can stand alone. I missed reading the first one of the series too.
This one tugged at my heart strings. Both Colin and Hannah have suffered a lot of loss in their lives. Colin lost his wife and son in a accident two years ago. Hannah lost her husband and mother-in-law at the same time four years ago.
Colin could not stay at his home and job after he lost his family. So he left and is taking ranch jobs because hard work helps him to cope. Being around children is tough for him.
Hannah Shaw was raised in foster care. When she married she finally had a family. Then she lost her in-laws and husband. After she found out she was pregnant. Hannah decides to be positive for her son. The ranch she received is run down.
Colin agrees to work for Hannah for one month till his brother's wedding then he has another job.
Colin likes hard work. He helps fix up the ranch.
Their is lots of drama, emotions, a couple of love scenes and some humor it makes a nice romantic story.
I was given this ebook Her Cowboy Hero to read so I could give a honest review from Net Galley.

This story is heartfelt and inviting. It’s also a very emotional novel. Michaels definitely put me through the ringer. I really enjoyed the pace of this novel. It was neither rushed nor lagging. It was simply a nice, quiet ride through the convergence of these characters’ lives. It was so easy to lose myself in. Michaels melds narrative with description, allowing you to see the world surrounding this story as the characters themselves see it.
I thoroughly enjoyed the characters in this novel. The main characters were exceptionally well yet realistically developed. It was nice to see characters that weren’t polar opposites interact in such a romantic (and antagonistic) manner. You can see both the similarities and differences in their backgrounds and how it causes them to act and react the way that they do throughout the novel. Also, neither of the characters remain static throughout the novel. They grow based on their experiences, without ever changing who they are intrinsically. The supporting cast of characters is also quite remarkable. I appreciate that they never overshadow the main characters without simply becoming placeholders in the novel.
Overall, this was a very emotionally charged novel that has captured my heart. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to romance enthusiasts and it has definitely sparked me to look further into Michaels’ work.
