Would-be writer Sarah Dery has just turned twenty-five and feels like her life is on hold. She’s done squat with her English degree and is just killing time working for her parents. So, when the opportunity to spend the summer working on a ranch in Texas comes her way, she jumps at the chance - figuring it might be just the jolt she needs to get her creative juices flowing.
Tony Carlton is a handsome and reclusive horse trainer with a tortured past and an eye for trouble, this time in the form of a naked blonde stranger he finds in his shower.
The wrong turn that led Sarah into the arms of this sexy, brooding cowboy turns out to be just what she needed to find her steamy inner voice, but will their connection be enough to break down Tony’s defenses?

Another good R. Cardello story; laughed out loud!
Would you listen to Taken, Not Spurred again? Why?
I thoroughly enjoyed it and chuckled out loud thru the majority of the book due to Sarah, the main character’s personality and the way a lot of her dialogue was from the point of her talking to herself in her head. It was a fantastic job as narrated by Mary Kowal & after listening to her, I can imagine I’ll hear her voice as I read the book which will enhance the reading of the book!
What aspect of Mary Kowal’s performance would you have changed?
As an audio, the male character’s voice as done by Mary Kowal kept me from fully enjoying the first half of the story until I got somewhat used to it; it felt forced & unnatural and although I thought about that less as the book went along, I couldn’t totally ignore it. If the males had been narrated by a man, I think I would have enjoyed them much more, but the story still was gripping & kept me going in spite of it & I enjoyed it overall.
Any additional comments?
This is my first time doing a review, but I enjoyed this book so much that I decided I needed to share my point of view. Sarah and Tony’s, the main male characters, seemed like the perfect ying/yang relationship. The story had a slightly unique twist and the main points that determined both of their characters emerged slowly as the story progressed which kept me guessing. I have read all of Ruth Cardell’s Legacy Collection & enjoyed them, so decided to try her new Lone Star series and am glad I did. I’m looking forward to book 2 in the series

Ruth Cardello rocks!!!
Ruth Cardello rocks!!! This is another great book.
Sarah Dery travels to Texas to see a friend but her friend not in when she gets there. So she lets herself in and takes a shower. The shower belongs to Tony Carlton not Sarah's friend. Sarah has no sense of direction, can Tony see the funny side?
Read the book to see, I would recommend all Ruth Cardello's books.

Funny but average
The story was amusing, the characters likeable enough but the story was, as is often the case with this genre, predicable. Still if you want a unchallenging, pleasant few hours listening it's worth a credit
