Malloy has a job that he loves, thanks to a family who was kind enough to take in a foster kid and show him the world of ranching. Now he would gladly work himself to the bone to prove he’s worthy of the foreman position he’s been given. Malloy has tunnel vision when it comes to the ranch and his foster family, anything that doesn’t fall into those two categories just has never been worth caring about. He keeps his nose down and tries to earn the respect of the people around him. That’s why he’s thrown for such a loop when he finds himself taking notice of the new farm hand, Crispin.

Crispin is very different than the rest of Malloy’s crusty, taciturn crew. He’s got plenty of experience with farms and ranches, but he still has a lot of passion and excitement for the jo. Plus, it’s coupled with a tendency to talk the ear off whoever he’s working with. Malloy ought to be ready to stuff cotton in his ears to get back to his normal, peaceful environment, but instead he finds himself volunteering to work next to Crispin. How can he combine the life he's built for himself with this new fascination? Especially when changes at the ranch bring a whole new set of responsibilities?

This was a very romantic cowboy meets cowboy story. Malloy is gruff and keeps secrets from the world and the reader. It takes a long time to find out just why he’s playing his cards so close to his chest and he is a dynamic enough main character to make that a mystery you want to solve. I also appreciated that Crispin had his own issues and was not helpless or a flat character. Instead it’s easy to see why his excitement and love for the job spark an interest in Malloy. My Cowboy Heart was a sweet western fairy tale that I’d read again.

This is apparently the start of a series and the fact that the other cowhands on Malloy’s team just happen to also have unresolved issues between each other stretched the imagination a little. But, I suppose, no more than the beginning of series where it is clear that siblings will be the romantic leads of future books.
