Four and a half stars.

Slow Hand is one of those books that draws you in from the first few pages and keeps a hold on you until you reach the end. Well, I suppose that's only part true. Technically speaking, this book first drew me in even before I cracked it open. Just look at that cover model. Absolutely gorgeous.

I really liked both main characters, which I think definitely helped fuel my connection with this book. Nicole may be a bit scattered sometimes, but I like how argumentative and stubborn she is, especially when she's paired with the (arguably) even more stubborn Wade. Oh, Wade. I thought he was excellently written. He had a nice mix of protectiveness, seduction, sweetness, and intelligence that I personally found addictive. I liked that he was kind of a blend of new and old cowboys- he is a lawyer, but he still helps out on the family ranch, even if he doesn't necessarily want to. I enjoyed watching their relationship grow. Their dialogue together was sassy, funny, and flirtatious, and their physical chemistry was out of this world. I appreciated that the sex scenes- and yes, there are quite a few steamy scenes- were dirty without being too crass or vulgar. It's a fine line and I think Vane toed it well.

I will say one thing about that though. I know that this book is a romance first and foremost. But these steamy scenes actually distracted me a bit from the nonromantic plot of it. It'd be a while of them together and then Nicole would say "but I need to prepare the funeral for my father" and I'd be like "OH YEAH, that is why she's in Montana! While this wasn't a huge deal for me (I'd rather have the steam to be honest), it did jerk me a bit while reading.

Another reason why I liked this book is because it's well described.

Wade Knowlton’s momma raised him right. When he sees a distressed aka hot mess Nikki in the airport he anonymously gives up his seat to her and drives all night to reach his Montana destination.
Nicole Powell is dangerously edgy and nervous from the flight and surprised by the emotions she feels about the death of a father she barely knew. Her time is severely limited and being told her flight is delayed and there’s a long waiting list is the last straw when miraculously she gains a seat. After that things go downhill and become increasingly tricky for Nikki.
Neither Nikki nor Wade ever dreams their paths will cross again but fate has other plans.

Ms. Vane’s first foray into contemporary is an undoubted success. Who knew she could dash off strapping Montana cowboys with the same aplomb she applies to sensuous Georgian rakes? The warmth, intelligence, and attention to detail that mark her Georgian historicals are evident in SLOW HAND.

Montana’s rugged natural beauty shines brightly as does the character of those who live there and struggle to earn a living. Thanks to SLOW HAND Big Sky country has been added to my list of places to visit.

In Wade readers meet an honest to goodness working cowboy raised to be a Southern gentleman. That’s a rare combination. When you figure in Wade’s depth, intelligence, charm, and good looks what woman in her right mind would even consider resisting?

Enter Nicole, aka Nikki. Nikki is a sucker for a Stetson, tight jeans and boots. Seems Nikki also has a penchant for picking losers and poseurs. Though not a complete lost cause she doesn’t consistently demonstrate common sense, much less intelligence. Refusing to see what’s right before your eyes is stubborn for the sake of stubborn.

What a sizzling entry into the world of Western Romance for author Victoria Vane. Slow Hand is a sparkling introduction into the world of the Hot Cowboy Nights series.

Nicole Powell hates to fly for any reason, but when she is stuck in the middle of a connecting flight at the airport on her way to settle her now deceased father's affairs, she almost falls apart. Glancing around the gate for a free seat to wait the delay out, she spots a cowboy and practically shakes her head. Nikki has had a major yearning for this sultry cowboy's type, but each and every time, she's been burned by them, so she has sworn them off.

Cowboy/Lawyer, Wade Knowlton is giving the girl in tears the once over and aside from the blotchy red face in distress, he likes what he sees. He knows he shouldn't feel badly for her not being able to catch a flight out, but his mother taught him right, so without a second thought, he gives up his seat so the young woman can get to where she needs to go, and he opts to rent a car to make his journey. En route he gets a phone call from a supposed client in distress and re-routes to help.

Losing her wallet was the worst thing that could happen to Nikki. She seems to have no luck, and when the man who comes to her rescue turns out to be that cowboy from the airport she has no idea what to do. With serious reservations, Nicole accepts the help that Wade has to offer, but the obvious attraction they both have for one another is quite disturbing to her, and Wade's quick wit and constant innuendo start to chip at her reserve.

That missing wallet is a serious complication, because nothing can be done about getting Nikki's father's affairs in order until she can legally prove her identity.
