Slow Hand (Hot Cowboy Nights #1) by Victoria Vane

17732015This was a funny love at first sight then fight story. Nicole "Nikki" Powell is in Montana to lay her father to rest when she loses her wallet. Thankfully a very good looking cowboy comes to her rescue, first he gives her his seat on a collection and then a place to crash when she can't check in to a hotel without an ID or a credit card.

Wade Knowlton is a cowboy/lawyer (do cowboy lawyers wear boots and Stetsons to court?) who has had a rough four years (the drama behind that is crazy); anywho, being raised a gentleman, he comes to the rescue of the pretty damsel in distress, first he giver her his seat on a flight, then some Starbucks and a place to crash, plus a little something more.

The story was good however, there where a few things I didn't like, mainly Nikki's half sister. I found her presence in the book annoying and while I'm on that I semi hated Nikki. Nikki spent all her time trying to push Wade away and he was trying really hard. Worse her excuse was that it was too good to be true. She spends the entire time complaining about how all the guys she's met are douchebags and she finally meets one that despite his flaws he can recognize love at first sight when sees it.

Wade was a descent guy despite his many flaws and the whole connection between him and Nikki was interesting. It gave you a lot to laugh about.

The drama between Wade and his brother is what gets you hooked, I cannot wait to start on the next book "Rough Rider". There we get to see what Wade's big brother Dirk was up to while Wade was wooing Nikki. So I say read and get both books because they are a must read back to back; this was my first Victoria Vane book and she has a style of writing that will keep you engaged.
