You can’t go home again.
Devlin Braxton never thought he’d test those words and return to Braxton, Texas – the town where generations of his family had ranched honorably. Not him. As an undercover agent who spent years infiltrating the underbelly of a drug cartel with a local pipeline, everyone thought he was the devil-may-care, good-for-nothing, playboy he pretended – even his family. After the massive bust and the shoot out that nearly killed him, Devlin is ready to discover who he is and where he belongs.
Marissa Flanagan has fought for her place in Braxton. First she had to live down the pity and gossip when she was jilted by her fiance, then prove her professional worth when the town’s beloved – and male – vet retired. She’s finally made her peace or so she thinks until Devlin Braxton shows up at her door with a proposition.
They have a past, will Devlin’s blue eyes and pulse-stopping kisses convince her he’s changed and that they might have a future?
5.0 out of 5 stars The story is as beautiful as the cover.

Her Secret Cowboy is the third Blood Brothers by Debra Holt. This is such a great series but when I read the first book I couldn’t really understand the title for the series. After reading the second book I understood, then Dev’s story makes it even clearer. Now the unpredictable brother returns home. From the first book, I was really wanting to know his story believing it was more than Devlin being a gypsy spirit. It was!
Her Secret Cowboy was everything that that I had hoped Devlin’s story to be. Excellent attention holding writing where tough guys have tender hearts towards animals. Family and making a difference are importance, with characters that you would want as friends. Some might would classify it as a second chance romance but first and foremost it is a second chance at life for Devlin. His brothers, their loves and Marissa Flanagan come to his aid. Excellent ending to the series. Deep down I hope that there will be a spin-off to others who are in their community.
An ARC of the book was given to me by Tule Publishing which I voluntarily chose to read and reviewed. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

I really enjoyed Devlin and Marissa’s sweet and emotional story in Her Secret Cowboy by Debra Holt, book three in her Blood Brothers series. I really enjoyed learning more about Devlin in this book. It totally changed my opinion of him from the first two books. Marissa was a strong, but sassy character who also had a sad side. It also turns out Delin had a hand in twice changing her life. The chemistry between him and Marissa was hot and sizzling simmering; keeping me hoping for their future. Both of them fought what they believed in and it made for a very interesting read.
Ms. Holt wrote a wonderful and emotional story that is definitely not to be missed. She provided a tale rich with sizzling chemistry, amusing banter, and endearing characters giving Devlin and Marissa a chance for a future together. I highly recommend Her Secret Cowboy to other readers.
