When Somebody Loves You by Shirley Jump

First in a new series from the New York Times bestselling author of the hugely popular Sweetheart Sisters novels!

At heart, Elizabeth Palmer is a practical Jersey girl. And her life reflects that—until everything suddenly falls apart.  In a bid to change her luck, the intrepid reporter accepts a job to write a story on a reclusive quarter horse breeder in Chatham Ridge, Georgia. To her surprise, she finds herself settling into the warm, inviting town—even joining the Southern Belle Book Club—and craving the company of the rancher she’s there to interview….

Hunter McCoy has good reason to keep his distance from the determined reporter. Tragedy has taught him to stick to things that don’t require his heart. But he can’t seem to resist the vulnerability he detects beneath Elizabeth’s tough demeanor.

But when Hunter is faced with the possibility of a terrible loss and shuts Elizabeth out, she will have to prove to Hunter that having somebody love you can heal all wounds…

Who doesn't love reading books about sexy Cowboys?

Hunter McCoy is a hard working cowboy who can't get over the tragic death of his fiancée two years ago.  He buries himself in his work and is quite unaware that he is considered the hot eligible bachelor in his small town.  His goal is to rebuild his family's ranch and make it profitable.  

Elizabeth (Lizzy) Palmer wants to be a writer.  She has sent out hundreds of query letters to different magazines  and just received her shot to write for a horse-breeding magazine.  Her assignment is to interview up and coming horse owner and breeder, Hunter McCoy.

Elizabeth runs into heavy rain as she enters the small town of Chatham Ridge, Georgia.  Hungry from the long drive, she pulls in front of the only establishment that looks open, Happy Ending Bookstore, where she meets the owner, Noralee Butler.  When Noralee finds out she is in town to interview Hunter, she immediately calls him at the ranch and makes arrangements for Elizabeth to stay at his house for a few days.  Let the romance begin!

When Hunter meets Elizabeth he is instantly attracted to her but does not want to go through with the interview.  The story continues with flirting, arguing and sexual banter.  Anyone who loves a good romance will love this book.  It is entertaining and a quick read.
