Business executive Tess Covington has three days to transport a bag of cash from Plano, Texas, to an airstrip in the mountains of southern Mexico or her kidnapped sister dies. In need of a private pilot, Tess hires Nick Cade. A former champion bronc rider, Nick’s new claim to fame is storm-dodging while flying his small plane in and out of the Colombian jungles, rescuing captives. But the mountain storms prove too much for the plane, leaving Nick and Tess to survive a long mountainous trek to the drop-point while stalked by raiders and growing feelings for each other.

Sissy: When Bubby told me to read Rescued by the Cowboy, I took one look at the title and cover and thought ” What? We have sunk this low, that we must read Harlequin-esque cowboy romances?” But she insisted and gave me a cookie, so I read it. And guess what? I found in Rescued by the Cowboy a rollicking Adventure, Mystery, Romance reminiscent of “Romancing the Stone” with a contemporary upgrade. I bit (the cookie and the book) and was hooked like a daydreaming river trout! This is the first book in the Texas Flyboys series, which feature the Cade brothers (a family of bronco busting, storm dodging pilots). If they look anything like the hunk of muscle-bound eye candy that graces the cover, then that spells trouble, girls, trouble!
Bubby: I think you sound a little too enthused about that cover picture, sister cougar. Anyway, I, too was not expecting the kind of solid writing and engaging action that I found in Rescued by the Cowboy. To be honest, a lot of the time in the books we receive to review, we find lots of highly naughty language or heaving bosoms or such poor writing that we suspect it was done by a drunk chimpanzee. This was not the case with Lindsay Randall! It was a fascinating tale of kidnapping, treachery, intrigue, danger and the inevitable but highly anticipated romance.
Sissy: Author Lindsay Randall put a lot of thought into the back story of the Cade family and we get little glimpses of it throughout the story. We hear a bit about the romance between their bull-riding father and barrel-racing mother, how the boys grew up watching and participating in the rodeo circuit, how the brothers formed a commuter airline service and their dream to own a Texas ranch. Apparently, during the course of the series, each brother will meet and fall in love with his own heroine. Sounds great, right?
Bubby: Yes! Book two, Slow Dance With a Cowboy is already on our TBR list. Why is it that none of the rodeo circuit boys I grew up with looked like Nick Cade?
Sissy: I know– Ours were more the short, bow-legged, hairy man types. No thank you.
Bubby: I guess that’s why we moved away and married non-rodeo boys. Maybe they only grow that way in Texas? At any rate, we’re thrilled to have found a new author who writes well and makes us want to read more.
