Here are some cowboy books that I would love to read! Most of these titles are Harlequin releases, because nobody has the romance formula down as well as they do. When I need a quick little pick-me-up, they are my go to publisher because I know I am going to get a happy ending out of the deal.
I enjoyed One Brave Cowboy by Kathleen Eagle, so I would like to get to know some of the supporting cast better.
Cool Hand Hank by Kathleen Eagle
Sally Drexler was always running. The proprietor of the Double D Ranch and wild mustang sanctuary had her hands full keeping health, hearth and horses on an even keel. And though she approached every challenge with her chin high and her spirits even higher, it could get lonely. That’s when Hank Night Horse came along, singing her tune.
Hank couldn’t help noticing the bride’s irresistible sister at his best friend’s wedding. But this physician’s assistant put rodeo riders back together for a living, and could sense that something about Sally was broken. Was his healing touch what it would take to soothe Sally mind, body and soul…and stop her running?
Once a Father by Kathleen Eagle
Logan Wolf Track had horses in his blood. For this "Indian cowboy," teaming up with army sergeant Mary Tutan to enter the Double D’s wild mustang training competition was a win-win proposition. This tough yet vulnerable woman was a natural with horses—and with Logan. She soon had the single father yearning for love and family, something he’d lost when his grown stepsons left home.
But as with horses, it wasn’t enough for Logan to know how to ride this feeling; he had to know how to fall. And when Mary made a shocking discovery that threw their relationship into question, Logan knew he’d risk all to keep their untamable passion alive….
I would love to read Linda Lael Miller’s series about sexy cowboy brothers. The synopsis below is for A Creed in Stone Creek:
When single attorney Steven Creed becomes guardian of an orphaned five-year-old boy, he trades his big-city law firm for a ranch near his McKettrick kin in the close-knit community of Stone Creek, Arizona. Taking care of little Matt and fixing up his run-down ranch house with its old barn loosens something tightly wound inside him. But when Steven takes on the pro bono defense of a local teen, he meets his match in the opposing counsel—beautiful, by-the-book county prosecutor Melissa O’Ballivan. It’ll take one grieving little boy, a sweet adopted dog and a woman who never expected to win any man’s heart to make this Creed in Stone Creek know he’s truly found home.
Walker by Rebecca Winters (I admit that I am drawn to this title because of the horse on the cover)
Out of nowhere, Walker Cody swoops in and saves Paula Olsen’s toddler son from a dog bite. Before she can properly thank him, the handsome Iraq War veteran fades into the crowd.
Walker’s in training to retake his World Champion Bulldogger title. The practice rides are bruising, but still don’t knock thoughts of a certain beautiful young widow and her little boy out of his head. And Paula’s shocked to realize she has a bad case of Pervasive Walkeritis.
Survivors’ guilt and ghosts from their pasts stand between them. Walker’s need to prove himself on the rodeo circuit runs deeper than bragging rights. But can Paula risk her healing heart on a troubled man who deliberately puts himself in danger?
Bachelor Cowboy by Roxann Delaney (Hmmmmm….I am sensing a cover trend here)
Bull riding–and all the danger that comes with it–is in Dusty McPherson’s blood. When an injury knocks him out of the rodeo and back home to Desperation, Oklahoma, all he can focus on is riding again. Until he’s welcomed by a gorgeous redhead aiming a shotgun at him.
To Kate Clayborne’s surprise, the handsome trespasser is not only a farmhand hired to help maintain the Clayborne farm, he’d been her high school crush. Used to living on her own terms and without the help of a man, Kate is reluctant to work with Dusty. Being so close to him now means trusting him, relying on him…and dealing with the attraction between them. Can she trust her heart to an adventure-seeking bull rider whose life is full of risks?
Samantha’s Cowboy by Marin Thomas
There should be millions in Samantha Cartwright’s trust fund… but it’s empty. Luckily for Wade Dawson, her financial adviser, Samantha doesn’t know that yet. So Wade’s buying time to solve the mystery of the missing money by playing cowboy on her ranch. But he’s in way over his head!
Wade is so different from the men Samantha is used to. He wears a tie to work instead of dusty jeans and a Stetson. And while she’s intrigued by him, she’s frustrated by the delay. After all, starting her new horse ranch will finally prove to her overprotective father that she’s capable of running her own life.
But Samantha’s memory lapses from an old injury once brought harm to a child she loved, and she cannot risk being a danger to Wade or his young son. Even if the businessman does look irresistible in a cowboy hat…
All of the above are available for the Kindle, and most of these titles are priced under 4 bucks, so if you need a cowboy fix, look no further.
