In romance these days, love may be exciting and new, but the people are every age from the young to the young-at-heart.
Taming wild horses lures K.
C. Houston to the challenge of a different sort of taming in The Last True Cowboy by Kathleen Eagle. K.
C. meets Julia Weslin at her family's High Horse ranch, where together they work to protect an endangered herd. The horses need a gentle touch, but no more so than Julia herself and a group of troubled boys she's determined to save. K.
C. must decide whether he, too, is meant to run free or yield to the power of love.
Kathleen Eagle is in top form in The Last True Cowboy, bringing to her writing a combination of powerful imagery and cut-to-the-marrow emotional impact.
