Blog Tour: The Last Rodeo by Delores Fossen

Author: Delores Fossen
Publisher: Harlequin
Date of publication: June 2018

The most important two words for this Wrangler’s Creek rodeo cowboy? I do…
Lucian Granger isn’t winning any Mr. Cowboy Congeniality awards. Known in his small Texas town as “Lucifer” thanks to his surly nature and knack for scaring people away from getting too close, the handsome rancher has no trouble ignoring the gossip. But when he’s in danger of losing the land he’s put his blood, sweat and tears into maintaining, Lucian sets out to prove he’s a changed man—by claiming he’s about to settle down with his invaluable assistant, Karlee O’Malley.

Their pending nuptials may be just for show, but from the moment they kiss, the proverbial fireworks start going off in his head—and in his heart. Before long, the man who’s usually as emotional as a brick wall is tired of pretending and wants to share a real future with Karlee. With his world suddenly turned upside down, Lucian will risk losing the business and the ranch if it means holding on to the one woman worth becoming a better man for..

The Last Rodeo is the sixth book in the Wrangler Creek series.  This one is Lucian and Karlee's story.  For the most part, it held up well as a stand alone as it focuses mainly on Lucian's issues with the fmaily business.  There was enough back story to get you caught up.

This one was better than the last one in the series.  There was much more humor and it made the mood lighter.  There were a lot of "madcap" moments that did have me laughing.  I loved the resolution for Lucian and his family business.   The romance for me was the weaker part of the book.  Lucian and Karlee have worked together for ten years.  Karlee has always been in love with Lucian, but he has always been hung up on an ex-girlfriend.  While I was rooting for them to get a HEA,the relationship lacked heat.  This is one of the things I have felt about most of the romance portions of this series.  I just would have liked more.
