Garrison Taggart doesn’t have time to deal with touchy-feely junk like “trust issues” or “feelings.” His dad’s health is waning and the family’s Wyoming ranch is being sabotaged. Too bad his supernatural ability to tell when someone is lying has been exactly zero help in ferreting out the betrayer so far. So, when sweet schoolteacher Sara Lopez raises concerns about his son being bullied, who can blame a guy for getting a little testy?

The last thing Sara needs is any more attention or gossip after her recent breakup with big-shot rancher Hank Brand. So her attraction to surly but sexy Garrison, Hank’s rival, is entirely unwanted. When she uncovers an insane plot to kidnap the Taggart boy and throws herself in harm’s way to protect him, Garrison must risk his deepest secret and his own life to save the people he cares for the most. But will his heroics cost him everything?

MY REVIEW

A paranormal cowboy. Well, I have to say that this is a first. And I liked it!!

Garrison Taggert has major trust issues. But who can really blame him after his wife took off and left him with their son and then emptied out his accounts??? She was a real prize, that one. He's been trying to hold everything together for his family and their ranch. So when his son's new teacher, Sara Lopez, brings up the fact that he's being bullied and asks one too many personal questions, Garrison wonders what her true motives are. It's no secret that Sara's ex-boyfriend is Hank, who clearly hates Garrison's guts. Or that the principal of the school is Hank's brother. Or that the boys bullying his son are none other than Hank's nephews. So of course Garrison uses his psychic powers to detect if Sara's motives are as pure as she claims.

There's a rabidly insane ex, a kidnapping plot, some strange things happening on the ranch, and a force that seems to be hovering over them all and intent on destruction. This turned out to be a surprising intense and suspenseful romance.

"There's Evil in Them Thar Hills" and I'm for one interested in how the author will continue this story.
