City slicker to cowboy? No way!
Although Scotsman Aleck McGavin dons boots and a Stetson during his brief visit to Eagles Nest, Montana, he's not ready to start riding and roping. He's a lawyer, not a cowboy. But before he can say quid pro quo, he's mucking out stalls and wrestling hay bales. Even more worrisome, he's falling under the spell of bartender Tansy Emerson's big brown eyes...

Saddle up for the fifteenth book in the McGavin Brothers western romance series from the NYT bestselling author who brought you the Sons of Chance and Thunder Mountain Brotherhood. If you like sexy cowboys, charming small towns, and laugh-out-loud adventures, you'll love the McGavin Brothers. Pick up your copy today!

About the Author

New York Times bestselling author Vicki Lewis Thompson’s love affair with cowboys started with the Lone Ranger, continued through Maverick, and took a turn south of the border with Zorro. She views cowboys as the Western version of knights in shining armor, rugged men who value honor, honesty and hard work. Fortunately for her, she lives in the Arizona desert, where broad-shouldered, lean-hipped cowboys abound. Blessed with such an abundance of inspiration, she only hopes that she can do them justice.

A Cowboy’s Destiny, the latest McGavin Brothers by Vicki Lewis Thompson is the perfect 4th of July book. I love visiting Eagle’s Nest for 4th of July. The little town always throws out all the stops and does it up right with parades and singing and usually there is a little romance thrown in. Thompson draws out the slow build between Tansy and Aleck, well as slow as it can be with a four day window. The rest of the McGavin clan make appearances that will delight long-time readers of the series. If you haven’t gotten your 4th of July fill, here’s your chance. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this novel.

Fourth of July at Eagle’s Nest is pure barry—that is, if you’re using Scottish slang like the novel’s hero Aleck McGavin. In this fifteenth series entry, it can be hard to keep all the McGavin’s straight, but this second Scottish cousin to visit the United States holds his own (while also including so many of the characters series followers know and love). Aleck is visiting Eagle’s Nest just to see his beloved brother, who moved to Eagle’s Nest in the previous book. But Eagle’s Nest starts to work its magic on the logical, lawyer brother, primarily in the form of Tansy, a loveable bartender at the Guzzling Grizzly. (And really, it’s about time Tansy got her own book! The Boston transplant has deserved a good match for books now!) Aleck had always believed love at first sight was a myth, but he and Tansy fall for each other hard. They’re both mature enough to know that this might be a temporary thing, and they’re going to enjoy it while it lasts. There’s a wonderful lack of quarrelling between the two—there’s no big conflict that hits in the middle for them to overcome. Instead, the conflict is set up at the beginning, and Thompson does an excellent job of setting up a believable realization for her hero that isn’t entirely “I do it all for love” scenario. Instead, there’s some self-realization and a greater understanding of personal happiness that come into play. (There are also dancing bears, floats with bird costumes, talkative horses, and family milestones as rewards for long-time series readers!) While Thompson does drop a hint early on about a possibility for a career shift for one of the characters (two local groups could really use business managers!), that ball never gets picked back up. It’s a shame, because I was curious to see where that line of thought was headed, and if it wasn’t the right job for these heroes, I hope she’ll pick it up in a future novel. In the meantime, this was another fun entry in the series, with lots of familiar faces that won’t overwhelm readers picking this up as a standalone. I received an advanced copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review.

Decisions, decisions…Lawyer or Cowboy life. Love this western romance series! Aleck is great and Tansy makes sure he has the time of his life, lol. Their love story is a perfect example of when losing your passport can be a good thing. Another great addition to the McGavin series which are all always heartwarming, full of love and familial support. I received a copy at no cost and without obligation from the author.

Vicki Lewis Thompson knows how to write romance! I absolutely love her heroes and heroines! One of my favorite series is the McGavin series. Eagle's Nest feels like a real place to me and the characters there are like friends. I look forward to reading each new story in the series. This story is about Aleck and Tansy. Aleck is Rory's brother from Scotland and they're cousins to the McGavins in Eagle's Nest. One of my favorite things is that Aleck plays bagpipes. I love hearing them. There's great chemistry between Aleck and Tansy. It's awesome that the characters from previous books in the series are in the book, too. It's like catching up with old friends! I recommend this book, as well as the entire series!

Aleck McGavin leaves Scotland for a quick 4-day trip to visit his brother and meet his extended family in Eagles Nest, Montana. He intends to make the most of his short trip. Tansy, the bartender, loves his Scottish brogue and is hoping to make of the most of him. This is another touching McGavin Brothers/family story. And, the family continues to grow. This story is filled with romance, fun and horse apples. (If you want privacy in your romantic life, do not go to Eagle's Nest, Montana. )

A Cowboy's Destiny (The McGavin Brothers Book 15) by Vicki Lewis Thompson .. Being a part of Vicki's "Fairy Dust Sprinklers" is such an honor. The MCGAVIN BROTHERS is one of my favorite series and this book did not disappoint. Beside getting to get updates on all of the wonderful characters from previous books... and meeting Rhys... Aleck and Tansy's story "love at first sight romance" was such fun.. Cowboys have always been a favorite of mine ...but then you add the Scotland influence and you have me. Lots of laughs, love, a few tears, and steam all lead to another very HEA. (I will say again "tadger" is one of my new favorite words). I am looking forward to Raven (Arron Donahue and Caitlin Dempsey's story... Reasons I enjoyed this book: Informative Wonderful characters Funny Easy-to-read Page-turner Entertaining Great world building Happily Ever After Romantic Steamy

Kilted Bagpiping Scot. Aleck comes from Scotland to visit his brother and meet his girlfriend. Due to work issues he can only manage four days in Eagles Nest but in that time he falls in love and gives up his career, family and home in Scotland. Highly romantic (if a little far-fetched). Can be read as a standalone. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book from the author. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Another fun addition to the ever growing McGavin clan and assortment of Eagle's Nesters. When these guys fall, they fall hard and fast. It takes special women, like Tansy, to catch their eye, but when they do, they are all in. I enjoyed reading Aleck and Tansy's tale, bagpipes, bear suits and all;) The peek at McGavin et al from previous books is like a leisurely return trip to your old hometown
