Chandler Sloan has everything—too bad his heart is as black as they come.
Nine years ago, Chandler Sloan was devastated by the betrayal of the only woman he’s ever loved. The night she turned her back on him was the night he became a man unwilling to forgive. Now Jayne’s back for her inheritance from his father’s estate, but all Chandler can see is red.
Jayne Keller is prepared for the painful memories that surface when she comes home. What she isn’t prepared for are the intense feelings that flare whenever she and Chandler are together. The more Chandler lashes out against her silence, the more Jayne is forced to confront the powerful passions that brew just beneath the surface.
But will his black heart and her dark secrets keep them both from reclaiming the love they deserve?

Jayne Keller had been adopted by Chandler Sloan’s family when she was a young girl. Chandler had found her and brought her home; he has always loved her. He was going to propose and she ran out on him years ago. Jayne had to back to her childhood home because the Sloan patriarch died, she must be there, and it’s the last place she wants to be. Chandler has never recovered from Jayne abandoning him; he is bitter, angry, and he hates her because he still loves her, or he would if his heart weren’t so hardened, so black. KC Klein is one of the most gifted writers around, and in THE BLACKHEARTED COWBOY, her magnificent writing style shines as never before. I marvel at the talent of Ms. Klein: Chandler is always angry, drinks far too much, he is unpleasant most of the time, very nasty to Jayne, and yet I could not hate him, I did not even dislike him. It was obvious there was a reason for his behaviour, and I could not wait to see how the story unfolded. THE BLACKHEARTED COWBOY is a fantastic story, gripping from beginning to end and with many plot twists. The characters are fascinating and extremely complex. It is not a light or easy read, but it is extremely satisfying because it is so well written, intelligent, and so, so compelling. Another superb book from KC Klein!
I absolutely loved Blackhearted Cowboy...The depth and vividness given to Chandler is amazing. I was hoping for he and Jayne to work out their past throughout the story and actually "sighed" when they finally came together. If this book is the first the reader has read from this author, I'm positive that, like myself, once having read it, I could not wait to read more of her books.
