Ren Colter may own an enormous ranch in Wyoming, but he scorns his wealth. He's closed himself off since his fiancée left him years ago, so he's shocked when he allows Meredith Grayling to stay with him. He tells himself it's only to protect the blonde beauty from a stalker, but Ren's alpha instincts soon kick in.
The last thing Merrie wants is a devastatingly handsome man like Ren lurking around her. He's too experienced, too appealing for her already shot nerves. What she needs is just to get away from it all: the man haunting her waking dreams and the one hunting her like an animal. But no woman escapes this Colter cowboy!

If you're looking for a fantastic cowboy romance, then Diana Palmer's latest release is the answer. Wyoming Brave captures the drama of romance between a hardened cowboy and an innocent young woman with a scarred past.
This is the kind of story I adore. It's not a predictable tale of love at first sight, but one that starts with emotional baggage and hint of possible love. Looking past the extremely repetitive dialogue, readers will engage with Meredith Grayling as she runs from danger and into the home of Wyoming cowboy Ren Colter. Ren is holding a grudge against women after a disastrous break up. When his brother brings Merrie home Ren believes she's just another woman seeking to prey on him for his money. Is her innocence all an act, or will this talented artist be the woman to mend Ren's heart together?
It's impossible not to race through the pages of the novel to see where the story leads. Merrie and Ren are a tough couple to bring together and it reflects in the writing. While Merrie wants to experience a true first love Ren wants to keep his heart locked away. She's soft where he's hard and cynical. He has a world of experience and she's never been kissed. It takes a while for Ren and Merrie to see eye to eye and the path leading there is filled with tears and misunderstandings.
Wyoming Brave is all the sweetness you want in a cowboy romance and seasoned with a little suspense. I'm dying to read the previous Wyoming Men novels just to get a little more of Diana Palmers endearing storytelling.
