Guest Review: No Getting Over a Cowboy (Wrangler's Creek #2) by Delores Fossen

Delores Fossen does it again with No Getting Over A Cowboy, book #2 in her Wrangler's Creek series! Ropes you in from the very beginning of this story! What a hysterical beginning to a super fun read. I have never laughed so hard at the beginning of a story before.

We met our hero Garrett Granger in book #1 of the series, Those Texas Nights, but his opening scene in this book happens when he drives up to the Granger Ranch property and sees lots of activity around an old derelict house built by his great-grandfather approximately 100 years ago but hasn't been occupied for many years. The author's description of this ancestral home, Z. T. Granger House starts the laughter ball rolling with her description of Garrett's reaction to many women swarming the house and property and a little girl "poking at that cow shit with a stick" with this, "Garret had always thought of the place as more of an ancestral eyesore than an actual house. But hell in a big-ass handbasket, it was his eyesore. Or rather his family's." It seems our heroine, Nicky Marlow, recent widow and single mother, has rented the dilapidated house for a year to use as a widows' retreat. Uh Oh! Not if Garrett can stop it!

As we read further we discover that Nicky has many secrets she wants to keep from everyone, especially Garret who, by the way, just happened to have deflowered her in this very house 17 years previously. And as you can guess Nicky's secrets become exposed one after another as she and Garrett find they can't resist their attraction to each other. Add in Nicky's super cute daughter who will win your heart and lots of new and returning lovable characters to enhance the storyline.

You'll want to read this story filled with great characters,a super storyline and lots of action and fun.

A Perfect Gentleman by Candace Camp

Oh how these second chance romances get me all giddy when they are done right, and trust me, Candace Camp's A PERFECT GENTLEMAN, is done so right. 

Finding out on your wedding day that your new husband has no intention of really having you as a true wife and on top of that, insulting you with snide remarks would assuredly have you running from said husband. Such is the case with American heiress Abigail Price, who had stars in her eyes when she stood at the alter marrying  Graeme Parr, Earl of Montclair, whose family is in dun territory and has need of Abigail's money.  The very young Abigail, eager to get away from under her oppressing father's thumb was all too willing to start her new life with her handsome new husband when Greame's words cut her to the core and have her flee back to America.

Saved by his wife's money, Graeme continues on his merry may, basking in the almost single life for a few years, until word reaches him that his wife has returned to English shores. Now it SEEMS that the earl has been enjoying his continued bachelorhood, but that's the fun of it, has he really enjoyed it? 

Abigail Parr is not the same girl who ran away from her husband. This grown up Abigail Parr is a force to be reckoned with and her husband, the earl, had better stand up, or get out of the way. Oh, and there is so much more to the tale that Graeme needed to save his family from debt. As the reader delves into the story the plot thickens with deceit as well as greed. Now years later, it's like Abigail and Graeme actually see each other for the first time, but will all that will be discovered be for the best? Read this book to find out, silly!

When a Highlander Loses His Heart (Highlander Vows: Entangled Hearts #4) by Julie Johnstone

Author Julie Johnstone is just one of those writers who stays with you  the more you read her tales of love and adventure. This fourth story in the Highlander Vows: Entangled Hearts series, WHEN A HIGHLANDER LOSES HIS HEART, is delightful tale and a must read.

Highland warrior, Graham MacLeod has many times allowed his emotions to overrule his actions. Abducting Isobel Campbell, who has been convent raised since she was a girl, begins a domino effect of mishaps that will prove to cause trouble for both Graham and Isobel.

All she ever wanted was the love of her family, but when Isobel discovers betrayal from her own blood, she is devastated. Wanting to use Isobel for his own gain is a mistake that Graham does not take lightly, for the more he comes to understand this lass, the more he realizes that she is not a means to an end, but a beginning that can enrich the lives of all involved. Keeping Isobel out of the hands of his enemies becomes paramount and in that while their feelings for one another transcend all the strife around them...
