Noah Laramie did not expect to see Lily Germaine at his door. With the loss of his right arm, he was coming to terms with how much his life has changed. He came to his hometown to recover and work for his brother Andrew at the Lazy L Ranch.
Andrew and Jen arrive, and they announce they are going to be married. They request that Lily be their maid of honor and Noah to be the best man. Both Lily and Noah are reluctant to agree; Noah for the obvious reason in that he doesn't wish to be put on display, Lily because it will bring up painful memories of the past.
Both of them realize they can't let down Andrew and Jen and agree to their request. Lily offers to help Noah prepare for the wedding. He is reluctant to accept her offer of help but knows he will not be able to do it alone.
Lily refuses to allow Noah to feel less of a man because of his disability. Her strong will and determination is the medicine he needs for his darkest hours. Noah's feelings towards Lily intensify, but he fears that she deserves more than he can be able to give her. Will these two kindred souls put their pasts behind them and be able to see the love before their eyes?
HER LONE COWBOY is by far the BEST emotional romance I have found in 2010. There was so many scenes that I reread just so that I could see them without tears in my eyes. Noah Laramie is a true hero; he gave the greatest sacrifice for his country and now he is faced with learning to live with a permanent disability. Lily is just the type of person Noah needs to bring sunshine to his life. Such beloved characters as these two are hard to forget. I feel so rewarded for having discovered Donna Alward's talents; she has earned a lifelong fan.
