Ava Clarington can’t help but be intrigued by the male model posing in nothing but chaps and a cowboy hat for the art class.  Unfortunately capturing his sheer masculinity using charcoal and paper simply isn’t happening.  Her best friend Julia dragged her to the class as a way to get her out of the old farmhouse she inherited.  When the class lets out for the evening Julia and Ava leave but on the way out Julia makes a comment “Save a horse, RIDE A COWBOY,” and Ava couldn’t agree more.


Fantasies about the model keep her awake nights and make the days working for a foreclosure company bearable.  She’s qualified as an early childhood educator but finding employment in her field is proving to be harder than she had hoped.  She hates working as a process server and especially dislikes her boss who refuses to cease propositioning her.

 

On a day that seems to be growing steadily worse as the workday progresses - and she blames the chain letter on the latest string of irritants.  When she’s handed several foreclosures to serve she just knows that the day couldn’t get much worse.  The last thing she expects is for the name on one of the papers to be the same as the one on the chain letter she’d received earlier.  To make matters even more complex, the man turns out to be the model who’s occupied every sensual fantasy she’s had since she attended that art class. 

 

Mitch Cartwright is struggling to hold onto the property that’s been in his family for more than a hundred years and Ava is doing everything in her power to hang onto her grandfather’s home.  Is there any chance they can both have their hearts’ desire and each other? 

 

With the housing crisis across the U.S. being in such dire straits, it’s hard to imagine there being any way to put a positive spin on it.  Carrie Destler does a wonderful job bringing these characters and their situations to life in a way that readers will be able to associate with them.  This is a quick story with plenty of amusing scenes to have you smiling even as you worry over Mitch and Ava’s futures.
