Desert Heat - Kat Martin

Book Blurb:
Fear And Desire Will Find You…No Matter Where You RunFor Ph.D. candidate Patience Sinclair, leaving the ivy-covered campus of Boston University for the wide, open spaces of Texas means a chance to stop looking over her shoulder at every turn. Traveling incognito with the Triple C Rodeo will help her finish her dissertation on the American West while hiding in plain sight. But she can't hide from Dallas Kingman. The champion rider makes it clear that he's watching her…and he likes what he sees. But everything about Dallas, from his country drawl to his rugged Texas charm, is unfamiliar to Patience. And if there's anything she understands with chilling clarity, it's what it costs to fall for the wrong man. As Dallas and Patience make their way through the heart of the southwest, a series of mysterious accidents turns the rodeo into a nightmare of fear and suspicion. Someone's obsession has turned deadly, and Patience has moved closer to danger than she ever could have imagined…

In My Own Words:
Spending the summer on the road traveling on the Rodeo circuit is just what Patience Sinclair needs after the year she has had with the stalker from hell.  What she didn't expect was to find a cowboy that she "clicks" with.  Dallas is everything she never thought she wanted.  A cowboy who's life is lived on the road from one rodeo to another, but there is so much more to Dallas than she first thought.  When "accidents" start to happen to the circuit, the danger seems to come closer and closer to Patience and when the accidents end up getting someone killed, everyone is on edge.

I liked the premise of this story, and even the relationship with Dallas and Patience.  I loved watching the friendship of Patience and Shari, her travel companion.  The life on the road was an interesting on to read about, the ups and downs and from town to town.  The hang out and friendships that are made over the years.  I was a bit put off by Dallas' sleeping with other women but still having his mind on Patience.  If he couldn't get her out of his mind, why the heck was he sleeping with anything that offered?  And I didn't really understand why he was so annoyed that she was getting her Ph.D.  That was a big point of contention with them, and I don't see the issue.  All in all, I thought it was an ok book, I am on the other hand, looking forward to reading her sister's book.
