Now I feel his stare like a touch. Viscerally. Acutely.
The Russian assassin has me in his sights, and there’s only one way out.
Good thing I’m drawn to danger.

Once upon a cold, dark night, a Russian killer stole me from an alley.
I’m dangerous, but he is lethal.
I escaped once.
He won’t let me do it twice.
The revenge is his.
The betrayal is mine.
But so are the lies to protect the ones I love.
We’re cut from the same twisted cloth. Both merciless. Both damaged.
In his embrace, I find hell and heaven, his cruelly tender touch destroying and uplifting me at once.
They say a cat has nine lives, but an assassin has just one.
And Yan Ivanov now owns mine.
Rebel swore off the white man's world–and women–years ago. But he's never met a woman like Dr. Mitchell. She doesn't speak the language, understand the customs, or believe he's anything more than a charlatan–but she stays, determined to help his people. He tries to convince himself that his tribe doesn't need her, but when patients start getting sick with strange symptoms, he realizes that he needs her more than ever.

Mystic Cowboy is filled with tension, Lakota beliefs, a little science, and a whole lot of romance…Filled with history, and rich descriptions of each scene, this modern day Western/Romance/Intrigue/Medical novel has lassoed five stars from me.–Tome Tender Book Blog
Four stars! Both generosity and greed play an important part in this love story where the tension mounts as illness threatens the entire reservation. Excellent character development is the highlight of Anderson's tale — Madeline and Rebel are often at odds as Rebel struggles to maintain his heritage and lifestyle while keeping Madeline by his side.—RT Book Reviews
There is so much more to this story than hunky-cowboy-who-just-happens-to-be-a-Lakota Indian meets white city girl. Cultural differences create difficulties in Madeline and Rebel's relationship beyond just medicine man vs. doctor of medicine. However, the attraction between Madeline and Rebel is there from the start and heats up nicely. Don't miss Mystic Cowboy, and be on the lookout for the next installment in the series.–Library Journal
I was hooked on this book from the beginning. Maddie's big life change was fascinating to read about, and I liked her character quite a bit. However, Rebel steals the show. He is enigmatic, sexy and so perfect for Maddie that I couldn't put "Mystic Cowboy" down…If you like contemporary stories about Native Americans and/or cowboys, you can't miss with "Mystic Cowboy." It is a delight to read, with a sensational blend of suspense, sexiness and romance.—Romance Novel News
Je suis un requin de la pègre. Écraser les autres, c’est dans mon sang. La mission Haynes devait être facile. Entrer, appuyer deux fois sur la détente. Une balle pour Charlie, une pour sa sœur. Mais dès que j’ai vu Valentina, je l’ai désirée. Malheureusement, dans notre monde, ceux qui nous doivent de l’argent n’ont jamais droit à une seconde chance. Ma mère n’acceptera jamais de lui laisser la vie sauve. Je dois concevoir un plan pour la garder.
Il est vicieux.
Il est immoral.
Il est ambigu.
Il est parfait.
Tout comme elle.
But then her mother asks me to marry her.
I say yes.
Now this woman will be mine forever.
Maybe the prophecy really is true. I’m committing to a woman that will never love me in return.
But it was better to be her husband than allow someone else to take my place. It was better to conquer her body every night than be lonely with someone else.
