When is a cowboy More Than a Cowboy? When his life as an attorney stands between him and the woman he secretly loves. Twenty Five years earlier, Sunny and Mercer split up over Mercer’s addictions. With her two daughters, Liberty and Cassidy, Sunny runs a rodeo arena and stable, staying in business is a constant struggle.

How could Liberty know what a personal need she had would boil over, causing her secret crush, Deacon McCrea to have to choose between his duty as an attorney and his feelings for Liberty. Will their budding romance wither or will they have to choose between family and their hearts. Will Mercer’s unfair use of Liberty as a pawn backfire in his face when his real reason for his actions is discovered? Will love conquer all?
Cathy McDavid’s More Than a Cowboy is a light, romantic read, perfect for those who love the thought of riding off into the sunset in the arms of the man they love. Ms. McDavid does not dig deep into each character’s life, but keeps the story rolling by giving just enough fleshing out to make them people you want to root for in the end. Using honor, love, guilt and deceit to create tension, she writes a wonderful read that is great for the beach, the pool, or anywhere you do not want to get overwrought with anxiety for the characters.
