Feature book: Sharp Shooter
Sharp Shooter by Victoria Vane
(This book is also known as Sharp Shootin’ Cowboy)
Can the sharp shooter and the animal lover ever connect in any meaningful way?
The moment they met in the bar, Reid knew there was something about Haley. He wanted to get to know more about her. Over the years and several tours, he manages to gain a picture of the person Haley was and is. Reid is determined, and over the years they connect, but the timing never seems to be right until they end up in the same area. He does his tours of duty and retreats back to the family ranch where he has to deal with the rich folk, who want to say they have been hunting but in fact just want to brag. It is here he is reunited with Haley and not in the best circumstances.
Haley is wary as the man was a marine. She doesn’t do marines in any way, shape or form. Her lousy father was a marine. She would rather have the activist college professor than the rugged ranchman. In fact she has a relationship, but she comes to realise way too late that while she believes she is in love, her man actually regards her as a friend with benefits. When she understands what he thinks of her, both as a lover and as a good fundraiser, she retreats to her first love and that is tracking and protecting wolves.
This is an intriguing story of how a couple who have some very different ideas and approaches are able to connect on the baser level. Their initial chemistry is intense but the ideals they both hold dear tend to get in the way. Fortunately for them, they are able to work their way through their issues to have their HEA.
I enjoyed the story of how this veteran has been able to deal with his tours and come to find peace in his life as well as the love of his life.
