Shane by Vanessa Devereaux


Product Description

Big Sky Cowboys, 1

Marie Malone saw a shooting star in the Montana sky and knows that means she’s granted three wishes. She wants her three sons to find true love… 

Lacey Metcalfe left Boston with lots of bad memories and decides wherever her finger lands on the map is where she’s headed to start a new life. Just so happens that’s Timber Creek, Montana and the sheriff’s looking for a new deputy. 

Shane Malone doesn’t think Lacey’s right for the job but he has strange feeling that she might be right for him. If only he hadn’t sworn off getting involved again, especially with another woman who might be here today but gone tomorrow. And if only she wasn’t so darn irritating. 

Irritating sort of grows on him and soon the lawman and the newcomer find themselves in one another’s company a little more each day. 

Can these two put past hurts behind them, and is Lacey the true love of this Big Sky Cowboy? 



He reached over, took her shot glass and downed the rest of her drink.

“Hey, I was enjoying that,” she said.

“Yeah, a little bit too much by the look of things.”

“Why don’t you let me be the judge of that?”

She wasn’t only slurring, some words now sounded like she was speaking in tongues. And how come there were two sheriffs now? “You stole my drink, and they won’t let me have another one.”

Another burp, but this one louder than the first. And in all honesty she wasn’t feeling that great either. It felt like stomach acid was on spin cycle. And then hot bile rose up in her throat.

The day was going farther down the toilet. Which is exactly what she needed to use and probably very soon. “I’m going back to my motel room. If no one here has an objection to that. Maybe I have to get a permission slip.”

She attempted to stand but suddenly her legs felt like they were made out of her mother’s homemade pudding. Shane caught her a mere two inches off the ground.

“Okay, little lady, let’s get you safely out of here.”

“I don’t need help. And I’m not anyone’s little lady.”

He attempted to grab her, but she pushed him away.

“We can do this the easy way or your way, which I know you’ll regret in the morning.”

He caught her off guard the second time around, and she couldn’t fight him when he grabbed her. The other patrons clapped and cheered as Shane slung her over his shoulder like she was a whole side of beef.

“Put me down this minute and I won’t press charges for police harassment.”

Too much to drink and her head was now facing down toward the floor. He was asking for trouble. He slapped his hand across her butt, and more cheers rang out in the bar. Two men wolf-whistled him as he waved goodbye.

“You’re all a bunch of chauvinists. Is this how you treat your women in Timber Creek? If so, my finger chose the wrong place.”

He put his arm under her butt cheeks and marched toward the door.

If she didn’t feel so sick, she’d actually find it a turn on.

Shane pulled the door open with his foot, and once outside a blast of very cold air hit her face. She took a deep breath and burped again.

“Did you drive or walk here?”

“Walked, of course. I never drink and drive.”

“I’m happy to hear that because I tend to come down hard on people who drink and then get behind the wheel in my county.”

He smacked her on her ass again. She was beginning to like it, but no way in hell would she let him know it.

“How dare you. I’m definitely filing a complaint with the county, maybe even the state.”

She burped again.

“You mean when you’re sober?”

“I’m not drunk.”

“Like hell you’re not. I’m going to drive you back to your motel and let you sleep it off.”

“What if I don’t want to go?”

  1. The Romance Studio TRS 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Feb 2015

    Lacey Metcalfe needs to get away from her life in the city and decides the best way to choose where she wants to end up is by putting her finger on a map and the first place she picks is where she’ll end up. That place is Timbers Creek, Montana, a place she wouldn’t ever consider unless it was forced on her. But it seems now that she’s there; it could be a place worth staying in if only she could find herself a job.

    Shane Malone doesn’t know what to make of Lacey the moment she shows up to apply for the job of Deputy being offered in his sheriff’s department. She’s not the right person for the job and he isn’t above telling her his opinion. He won’t change his mind no matter how much she pleads, even if she might just be the right woman for him.

    I liked the start of this book and how Shane’s mom wished for her three sons to find love. It was sweet and just goes to show how much a mom loves her sons and wishes the best for them. The plot and dialogue progressed well and I enjoyed the moment when Lacey and Shane first met. Both were highly intrigued by the other and weren’t afraid to show their interest, especially Shane when he asked Lacey what had brought her to his hometown. The sex scenes were hot and I’m glad that Shane finally decided to take a chance with another woman because Lacey was perfect for him. She wasn’t above telling him her opinion just as he wasn’t afraid to tell her his. It made things very interesting as it seemed neither of them was prepared to back down.

    What I really enjoyed though was how feisty Lacey was. She certainly wasn’t afraid to tell Shane what she thought of him and how she could handle the demands of the job of being a deputy. Except when she did arrive at a grisly scene without Shane’s permission, it seemed she was proven wrong. While with Shane, I liked that he helped Lacey find a job and didn’t abandon her in her time of need. She certainly needed a friend and not someone that turned her away just because he thought she’d leave Timber Creek because she was missing the big city she’d come from.

    Overall, this was a good book to start off a new series and I can’t wait to see what is in store for Shane’s brothers who deserve to find their own happiness just as Shane did.
