In the third heartwarming installment of Darlene Panzera’s Montana Hearts series, a hot-shot rodeo star tries to win the tender heart of his biggest critic

For Jace Aldridge, the chase is half the fun. The famous rodeo rider has spent most of life chasing down steers and championship rodeo belts, but after an accident in the arena, his career is put on temporary hold. When he’s offered a chance to stay at Collins Country Cabins, Jace jumps at the opportunity to spend more time with the beautiful but wary Delaney Collins.

Between trying to make her family’s business a success, raising her daughter single-handedly, and volunteering at the local wildlife shelter, Delaney doesn’t have time for love. Even though she’s determined to not let the handsome cowboy under her skin, Delaney can’t deny how much she looks forward to every day with him. She's determined to be friends with the handsome cowboy, nothing more, even though Delaney's heart flutters every time he draws near.

But all is not well in Fox Creek and when a violent poaching ring escalates out of control, Delaney must trust that Jace is the true country hero she hopes he is.

Highly Recommended A great story with several twists and turns. Unlike many writers, this author kept the story interesting and one of the twists was truly unexpected.

I really loved this book. I could hardly put it down. The characters are fantastic. Delaney is one of my favorite heroines. I love her passion for saving animals and being a good mother to her little one. Meghan was adorable and I loved the interaction between her and Jace. Jace definitely has the heart of a cowboy. He has a huge protective streak in him. This book takes some twists and turns that you don't see coming. The action, suspense, and romance just grab and suck you right in. I highly recommend this one you won't be disappointed.

A little twits here. A small turn there. Deep, relatable, understanding characters with heart, soul, and real life insecurities and problems. I found myself getting drawn in by the issues being thrown at Delaney and her family. I found that I could question how this or that would be solved or confronted. I greatly enjoyed watching her grew in her self-confidence, problem solving, and just as a mother and person. Watching the growth of her romance with Jace was pleasant and not like a freight train barreling down the track at full speed. Jace was just a man. A man laid humble due to an accident that has set his life on a slightly differnt path. A path the brought him in contact with single mother Delaney. Over the course of time their relationship grows and blooms into much more. Their romance was sweet. Their journey was a bit suspenseful. The setting warm, welcoming, and filled with beautiful landscaping. I have read none of the previous books because this was my first introduction to Darlene Panzera. I found this read to be a good standalone but with the other characters around my curiosity has been piqued to see what there stories had to offer the series. I would love to have the background of the proceeding stories to make this one that much more enjoyable. Montana Hearts seem to put heart in the slow drive to romance. By building a strong background to make a lasting relationship. **This ARC was provided via HaperCollins Publishing in exchange for an honest review.**

Darlene Panzera's "True Country Hero" is the answer and resolution to her series "Montana Hearts." While this book can be read as a stand alone, the first two in the series ("Her weekend Wrangler" and "Sweet Talkin' Cowboy") build a solid foundation for this third installment. Here, all the strings are tied together and every question from the series answered. Her characters have depth and are easily relatable; I find myself identifying a younger me with the heroine, Delaney, who must overcome her own fears and shyness to save her family's ranch. I cheered her on as she gained more confidence in herself and took matters into her own hands to solve her problems. It was a satisfying read with a few twists and turns. Darlene Panzera likes to keep her readers on their toes!

Ms. Panzera is an author that I have been aware of for quite some time but, have never had the pleasure of reading her work. When this opportunity came along I decided to take a chance. True Country Hero does have a hint of mystery but is mainly a love story. I have not read a great deal of romances where the story progresses at a slow pace that allows the reader to get to know the couple separately before they become a unit. A welcome change. I received an ARC of True Country Hero by Darlene Panzera in exchange for an honest review. Despite the fact I am new to this series I felt a connection right away and it felt like a homecoming of sorts. I liked that.
