Will she fall into his trap?
Keeping close tabs on her opponent…
is a minefield of temptation!
When detective Zoe Warren arrives in Royal, Texas, to investigate a case, wealthy rancher Cord Galicia can’t believe his innocent best friend is the prime suspect. So Cord decides to woo Zoe as a distraction. But soon she has his libido in custody. With so much at stake—and their very real heat rising by the minute—will his hidden agenda tear them apart?
Tangled with a Texan marks my first time reading Yvonne Lindsay. I can definitely say it won't be the last time. Tangled with the Texan is the eighth book in the Texas Cattleman's Club: Houston series. It is only the third book I've read in the series, and I found it to be a completely standalone read. In fact, none of the key series characters make appearances at all. Through the epilogue, you do find out what the series villain is thinking.
In Tangled with a Texan, third-generation police detective Zoe Warren is trying to find out who killed Vincent Hamm, an employee of Perry Holdings, whose body was found at the construction site of the Texas Cattleman's Club Houston location. Following a lead, Zoe travels from Houston to Royal with the sole purpose of speaking with local rancher Jessie Stevens. Her efforts become stalled when Jesse's neighbor and best friend Cord Galicia gets involved. Cord knows Jesse would never kill anyone and with Zoe not taking his word for it, he sets out to distract her. He just never expects his method of distraction to turn into true feelings.
Zoe and Cord are opposites in every way. She's a city girl and he's a small-town guy. He wants a wife and kids to carry on the Galicia legacy. She wants to prove that a woman is just as good of a cop as a man. What they do have in common is their desire and attraction for one another. But for these two, the biggest problem is that Zoe is a cop through and through and risks her life every single day.
I loved these two together. I loved their back-and-forth banter. I loved the way they each tried to fight their feelings. I loved watching them come together. I think that if the story would have brought out more emotions from me, it would have been a five-star read.
As far as the series arc goes, I think I’ve figured out who the villain is. I just haven't really figured out why. As with the other books I've read, the epilogue is intriguing and has me chomping at the bit to read the next book, Hot Holiday Rancher, which happens to be a Christmas romance written by Catherine Mann.
