Veterinarian August Fletcher has always put his job first. He’s never found a woman who could handle his on-the-road lifestyle. But when sassy, sexy Tanna blows into town, he finally finds the woman of his fantasies. And there’s something between them, but she claims she’s been burned by love ’em and leave ’em road dogs before. How can Fletch prove that he’s in it for the long haul, and that their sizzling relationship is better than winning any rodeo medal? It’ll take some sweet persuasion to convince Tanna that Muddy Gap is where she belongs.

4 Stars for Turn and Burn – Tanna Barker lived her life balls to the wall. She has 3 wins as a world champion barrel racer and she thought life was just perfect. Then her world came crashing down. After an accident in a competition that left her horse dead and her with injuries, she also lost her mother and her childhood home. The culmination of those things left Tanna panic stricken to ever be around a horse again. At a loss for what to do Tanna heads to Muddy Gap where her friends are to try and restore some balance in her life. On her first night into town she has a one night stand with a sexy stranger but sneaks away in the morning.

August Fletcher has been all work and no play since he decided to become a large animal veterinarian. He’s never regretted his long hours and lack of a social life until he meets a stranger in a bar and one thing leads to another.

Turns out these two have many friends in common and happen to meet again and Fletch decides he wants more than a one-night stand from the ornery stubborn woman.

I saw this book as the healing of Tanna. She has so much pain and fear bottled up inside her and she didn’t trust just anyone to share her feelings with. Fletch tried to let others help Tanna over her fears but when their lack of getting through to her due to her evasiveness doesn’t work he decides he is going to gently but firmly get her past her fears.

There is plenty of face time with previous characters including the always hilarious Mud Lillies. We also got quite a glimpse at the next character getting a book in the series, Devlin McClain. Cant wait to see what Ms James has in store for the country western heartthrob.
