Pete [NOOK Book]

Overview

I've been told that my heroes ought to be rougher, more dangerous, more brooding, but that goes against the grain of my Southern upbringing. Southern men can be total bastards to each other, but you treat a woman special. After all, she is, or will be, somebody's mamma, and mothers are sacred to a true Southerner.

I guess that's a little bit how Pete Jernigan, the hero of The Cowboys: PETE, feels about Anne Thompson. That's what causes him to ...

Overview

I've been told that my heroes ought to be rougher, more dangerous, more brooding, but that goes against the grain of my Southern upbringing. Southern men can be total bastards to each other, but you treat a woman special. After all, she is, or will be, somebody's mamma, and mothers are sacred to a true Southerner.

I guess that's a little bit how Pete Jernigan, the hero of The Cowboys: PETE, feels about Anne Thompson. That's what causes him to assume the identity of a dead man, to pretend to be her husband, so he can save her from a forced marriage to a savage old womanizer. Only trouble is, once he's told the lie, he's stuck with it. If he tells the truth, everybody loses. Then a rival is murdered right under his own roof and Pete is the prime suspect.

Pete knows he ought to tell Anne the truth and leave before she falls in love with him. He has to leave before he runs out of excuses not to consummate their marriage. But he can't leave without putting her in danger, giving up his search for the money stolen from him (the reason that brought him to the ranch in the first place), and practically confessing to the murder of the man he's impersonating. It becomes even more complicated when Pete finds himself falling in love with Anne. His honor demands one thing, his body and emotions the opposite. No matter which he chooses, he loses.

Pete's not your typical, all-conquering hero. Pete acts and speaks before he thinks which has gotten him in trouble his whole life. His adopted family considered him something of a burden because he used to be little and they were always having to bail him out of trouble his mouth got him into. But he's grown up now, and Anne thinks he's perfect, that he can fix any difficulty, figure out any problem. Pete tries mightily to live up to this flattering picture of himself. And he does pretty well until he falls into the clutches of the real villain. Then it's time for Anne to discover she's not so helpless as she thought.


Reviews of Pete …

"Leigh Greenwood never disappoints. The writing is always fresh and passionate, making us turn each page with eager appreciation. Capturing the time with natural ease, telling the stories like an old cook sitting around a cozy campfire, describing the people as if they were former acquaintances, you have to wonder if this writer isn't a cowboy reincarnated. And you can't wait until the next story begins."- Kat Bragg, CompuServe Romance Reviews

"I just finished PETE and I didn't think you could top yourself, but you did. PETE was the best."- Barbara Cumnock, BELL'S BOOKS

    If you read Jake...........and you should if your a Greenwood fan-- then you'll want to follow up on the11 orphans he's adopted. Pete is a strong enough story to stand on its own . But its more interesting if you read the background. Pete is all cowboy and character and Anne needs a hero in the worst way. Highly recommend
