Rainbow Valley, Texas, has always been a refuge for animals, and Shannon North, director of the local shelter, intends to keep it that way. But with donations drying up and more pets in need of a loving home than ever before, Shannon’s beginning to fear she’s not the savior the shelter needs. When a tall, dark, and handsome cowboy from her past comes to the rescue, she knows that accepting his help may come with a high price: her heart.


Bad boy Luke Dawson shook the dust from this little town off his boots years ago. He walked away from everything…except the memory of the one night of passion he shared with Shannon. Now, a few wins away from becoming the world bull-riding champion, Luke’s headed for fame and fortune. But then a crisis calls him back to Rainbow Valley, and Luke is reunited with the good girl who stole–and broke–his heart. As their rekindled relationship deepens into desire, old secrets resurface, and Luke must choose between the future he’s always dreamed of and the only woman he’s ever loved.(


Sigh. Yes it is true I am a sucker for small time life, a sweet romance, cowboys and animals. I am so happy to say that Cowboy Take Me Away fulfills all that and so much more! It was like this book was written with me in mind!

Shannon North is the director of the local animal shelter in Rainbow Valley, Texas. Unfortunately due to the economy donations are drying up and they have more animals than ever. They also need someone to stay in the back bedroom at night to help watch over the animals.

Luke Dawson is the local bad boy who has come back to town because of his father’s death. When a freak accident leaves him injured he has to find a place for his leg to heal before he rides away back on the rodeo circuit. After spending time with his lost love Shannon will his heart let him?

I am so excited that this is the first in a new series. I have fallen in love with Ms. Graves’ writing style, the way she brings the characters to life and her plot was so entertaining. She really writes a story you can’t put down. So needless to say I am looking forward to the next in this wonderful series.
