The Blurb:

In rural Montana…

Wade Knowlton is a hardworking lawyer who’s torn between his small-town Montana law practice and a struggling family ranch. He’s on the brink of exhaustion from trying to save everybody and everything, when gorgeous Nicole Powell walks into his office. She’s a damsel in distress and the breath of fresh air he needs.

Even the lawyers wear boots…

Nicole Powell is a sassy Southern girl who has officially sworn off cowboys after a spate of bad seeds-until her father’s death sends her to Montana and into the arms of a man who seems too good to be true. Her instincts tell her to high tail it out of Montana, but she can’t resist a cowboy with a slow hand…

My Review:

“Slow Hand” is my first novel by author Victoria Vane. This particular novel is the first in The Hot Cowboy Nights series. I really enjoyed it. It’s no secret that I love cowboy romances, not just the cowboys but the scenery as well. I’m mighty partial to Montana. 🙂 So this novel tells the story of Wade and Nikki. Wade is a lawyer/cowboy, the latter of the two is an obligation. One which he doesn’t care for. All he wants is to convince his brother and father to sell the financially burdened family cattle ranch. Wade wants to pursue other things and he can’t if he’s continually throwing his own money into the struggling ranch. Born and raised in Georgia, Nikki, has recently been notified that her estranged father, who lives in Montana, has died. So now she must travel two-thousand miles to settle his affairs. Both Nikki and Wade are dealing with loss, regret, and guilt. Could they learn to trust each other and move on? The road is long and paved with pessimism on Nikki’s part. Wade, on the other hand is willing to put aside his fears and give their relationship a chance. However, he wants that on his terms. There is definitely struggle between these two and there were times I became frustrated, especially with Nikki. Hey I totally believe that if you have nothing left to lose, give things a chance. Well, Nikki was not so easy to convince. I’m glad that Wade wouldn’t let her walk all over him but on the other hand, he knew a good thing and wasn’t about to let the opportunity pass. “Slow Hand” was a realistic story with believable characters and real life struggles. I am planning to continue this series with Wade’s brother’s story next.

My Rating 4.5 Stars!!!
