"Sexy space cowboys, yee haw!"

Colt, a space cowboy, found himself in a tough situation. He had taken a new assignment wrangling people, but when one escapes from his spaceship, he knew was in trouble. Then, when he discovered the planet the person escape to was home to an ex-girlfriend, Brynn, he knew he was in double-trouble. He lands on the planet, hoping to make a short visit, but soon finds that there is a big monster problem on the desert planet of Harrow.

Brynn is at her wits end. As sheriff of the small town of Wither, she is trying to keep her people alive from the monsters that attack after dark. She knew when Colt landed on her planet he would be the perfect person to help rid her planet of the monsters. Unfortunately, she and Colt have a history, which was going to be an issue.

I enjoyed the history between Colt and Brynn. When they meet again, they immediately light the pages on fire with their passionate encounters. Also, there is a love triangle, which I found intriguing.

The planet of Harrow is an interesting place that is a mixture of steam-punk and sci-fi. The setting adds a different touch to a well-paced plot. The story moves well with a few twists and turns that keep the reader interested.

Although there is nothing I especially disliked about Wither, there is nothing that stands out, either. This book reads well and has good characters, but the spark to catch and keep my interest never really happened.

Betrayal. Lust. Secrets. It’s enough to send a space cowboy riding hell-bent for stardust.

Wrangling is in Colt Marshall’s blood. He was known across the galaxy for his skill at roping horses and cattle, but found that the woman he loved wasn’t so easy to tie down. Now a mysterious client has him wrangling a man who may or may not be fully human. Colt doesn’t know and doesn’t care, as long as he gets paid. Until his pursuit of the escaped captive lands him on his former lover’s planet…and her request for help threatens to crack the armor around his heart.

With Colt’s unexpected arrival, Brynn Wight’s problems could be solved…or multiplied a thousandfold. She doesn’t expect him to understand why she left him, but she sure could use his help ridding her planet of the feral creatures terrorizing her town every night. It doesn’t help that he looks just as good as she remembers. Or that even after five years, their mutual lust is very much alive.

Their desire rivals the heat of the planet’s skin-peeling sun, stripping away layers of secrets to expose the truth. And a secret that could be their death sentence…

Genre: Romantic SciFi-Futuristic
Length: Category

Warning: This book contains a space cowboy with an attitude, a female sheriff with a kick-ass past, an AI dressed like a deputy, feral creatures, and a planet scorched by its proximity to the sun—but still not as hot as the cowboy and sheriff are for each other.
