Lacy Dalton needed the interview with ex-rodeo champ Cade Tyler to help her care for her Alzheimer-suffering grandma in a nursing home. The problem is, Cade never talked to reporters. Ever... except whoever on the phone did agree... So when she showed up at the Flying J ranch, she was surprised at the outright refusal, only to realize that it was Cade's partner, Burke who agreed. Cade lost his career when a bull threw him years back, and he dedicated himself to raise champion bulls. He lost his wife in a car accident two years ago, and media made it sound as if they had a fight (they didn't). He withdrew from the world, and the Flying J ranch was barely hanging on. When Lacy offered to help out in exchange for the story, Cade was not in a position to refuse, but also wondered how much help can a city girl be. And over the course of next several days, Lacy managed to get into all sorts of hijinx, from jumping into the bullpen to rescue a kitten (that didn't need rescuing) to speeding down a country road without her license, then tried to bribe the sheriff, then sang enough songs that drove sheriff up the wall, but also managed to capture Cade's attention, even though he'll deny it. But Flying J is going down because someone was sabotaging the place, from downed fences to slashed tires... Who was doing so?
I think the discovery was a bit too... easy, but it was a nice tie-back to the beginning. The idea of FMC's ONLY future was in getting one interview almost made no sense, but it sort of did within the context.
Enter Lacy Dalton, upcoming reporter for a magazine. Her latest assignment was to do a feature on the now reclusive Cade Tyler. Lacy needed to make the assignment a success. Her boss promised her that she will write the Cowboy Romance column if she delivers. The salary increase will go a long way in paying for the medical care for her grandmother, the only relative she had left.
Lacy's arrival at the Flying T ranch caused an upheaval that Burke, Cade's best friend and business partner did not anticipate when he asked Lacy to interview Cade. There was an instant attraction between Cade and Lacy. And as romance stories go, the whole story relates how they fell in love and live happily everafter.
"Capturing the Cowboy's Heart" is a good read though a little bit formulaic. Burke as a comic relief was a bit overdone and the villain in the story was so obvious from the very beginning that there really was no suspense except for waiting for the other shoe to drop.
The story telling was good and the book was well edited. But the hero and sidekick reference though not annoying was becoming a little bit much by the end
However, this reporter gets to him and gives him back his life. There is a bit of mystery involved but it does not dominate the story. It is just used to explain a few things. I almost didn't finish this one. At the first of the book, the heroine climbs in the pen with a killer bull. I couldn't believe she would be so stupid and thought that was the way the book was going to portray her. Stupid city girl that does one dumb thing after another. I'm glad I kept reading because that was about the only stupid thing she did. I enjoyed the read.
