Their reconciliation is sweet yet rather unbelievable.
-Book Reviews and More by Kathy


Any contemporary romance reader can tell you, cowboys are hot! And no one is hotter than Joe Daniels, the sexy ranch-hand hero of Lori Wilde’s The Cowboy Takes a Bride. The first book in Wilde’s exciting series set in Jubilee, Texas—a small town full of horses, cowboys, and more romance than you can shake a stick at—The Cowboy Takes a Bride is the kind of western-set love story that bestselling romance authors Linda Lael Miller and Kat Martin are famous for. Readers who love books by Susan Wiggs, Susan Mallery, and Sherryl Woods will fall passionately in love with cowboy Joe as he and a beautiful failed wedding planner try to make a go at a falling down ranch and find that their hearts are leading them straight to the altar.

The bantery Moonlighting*-style dialog between the two has some great moments but occasionally drags on too long for my taste.
