First in a brand-new series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Lora Leigh and Veronica Chadwick about one man’s pursuit of justice—and unbridled desire.


For as long as Samantha can remember, Hunter—a man as strong as steel, with a heart of gold—has been her hero. It came as no surprise to Samantha when she found out that the ranch-hardened cowboy who always protected her from bullies went on to become the town’s sheriff. What does surprise her is how incredibly hot he still is. And how much she still wants him…


And, lo and behold, Hunter still has feelings for Samantha. The long-smoldering heat of their innocent flirtation has grown into a full-raging fire. But when tragedy strikes, and their small-town community is shattered, Hunter vows to do everything he can to keep his childhood sweetheart safe. But can Samantha trust that Hunter has her best interests at heart…and that, after all these years, his love is true?

Funny story... Before I started reading One Tough Cowboy, I had been reading a lot of contemporary romances and while they all had some sexy scenes in them, I was seriously craving something raunchy and full of sexy time. I kind of pushed the idea to the back-burner until I had a bit of free time. As it turns out... One Tough Cowboy was sexy AF and boy did it leave me satisfied.

After the death of her Aunt Dottie, Samantha finds herself back in Deerhaven. Faced with the emotions from the loss and wondering if foul play was involved, it doesn't take long for her to seek the help from Hunter, her childhood protector turned hot sheriff. As the sexual tension starts to ignite, Samantha's past rears its ugly head and threatens to take happiness away from her.

The last person he expected to see in Deerhaven was Pixie Pest. The little girl he protected is a now woman Hunter can't resist. Once she is in his arms, Hunter will do anything to keep her there. He'll face her past and hunt down a killer to keep her safe. 

Oh lordy... This book was hot. I friggin' loved it. I've never read a Lora Leigh book. I've seen her books around. Heck, I've got a couple in print. So, really I should have guessed it was going to be high on the sexy scale. One Tough Cowboy was amazing. I loved the writing styles of both authors. The characters were so damn lovable. The suspense... Holy cow, that suspense. It both kept me on my toes and made me cringe (that last scene was gut-wrenching). I'm super excited for the next book in the series. The authors tempted us with a sexy scene with our next hero, Jacob. He's going to be a hot one! Plus I'm curious about if the bigger suspense arc will continue on to future books in the series.

I don't often do this, but I feel it's important. There is a trigger warning with a scene that involves an attempted rape. It's in a scene towards the end of the book. If it's something that bothers you, keep it in mind.
