Read from September 19 to

Read from September 19 to 21, 2013 The Cowboy Takes a Bride Jubilee Texas #1 by Lori Wilde Given by author for an honest review. What does a hungover cowboy in a gold-plated trough and a spit-fire, fired wedding planner from Chicago have in common? Why, cutter-horses in Jubilee Texas, of course! I love how the romance moves slowly in this story, how both Mariah and Joe fight the attraction and just slowly give in to it. Mariah has lost everything. Her job, her apartment and it appears her so called friends too. Then she gets the phone call that so many of us dread, but it didn't quite hit Mariah the same way. She has been estranged from her father, Dutch, for years. Made to feel second best to the horses that he loved so much, cutters. To Mariah's surprise, her father leaves her his ranch in Jubilee Texas. Can this be her time to start over, or just a layover til she goes back to Chicago? Joe Daniels, ex-bull rider, is now a cutter-horse trainer. Has been just getting by day to day after the death of his wife. Has thrown himself into the work he loves so well, training cutter horses. He says lightening doesn't strike twice and isn't even looking for it to happen again. Then there is Mariah. All he can think about now is Mariah. Can he let his dead wife go and start over again? I am looking forward to the next book in the Jubilee Texas series.

Not a bad contemporary We

Not a bad contemporary Western, set in Texas, about a city girl from Chicago who returns to her estranged father's hometown of Jubilee, TX after his death. Her father was a cutter, as is everyone else in this town. The first person she meets is a widower cowboy who's still mourning the death of his wife after two years. Both of them have some baggage to get over, with an homage to "Sleepless in Seattle." I liked it and was rooting for the two of them to just get on with their lives and stop worrying so much! Nice development, but seemed a bit rushed at the end and the title is a misnomer. One bonus: I learned all about cutting, which I had never even heard of before!

"The Cowboy Takes a Bride

"The Cowboy Takes a Bride" is a new and quirky title from one of our favorite romantic authors Lori Wilde and it appears that this is book one in a new series. Mariah, who is a bit down on her luck after losing her job as an assistant wedding planner in Chicago has just been offered a lifeline of sorts, when her estranged father dies and he leaves her his ranch. Her father hadn't spoken to her since he left her mother and herself years ago, so finding out he is dead, while a shock, isn't that big of an emotional deal. On the other hand, is it? So now Mariah is back in Jubilees Texas on this so-called ranch and she is trying her hardest to remain unaffected by the yummy cowboy she has found naked in what she thinks is her ranches horse trough her very first day there. Now sparks are flying when mostly naked cowboy, Joe Daniel's can't keep his eyes to himself and it gets harder and harder for him to keep on remembering his deceased wife and that he will never fall in love again. And he most certainly will NOT fall for a citified woman like Mariah! This novel is a sweet, gentle, fun, blending of a story of woman who wants to stay citified but was born country. It is about the big, chivalrous, yummy, cowboy that finally breaks down her defenses. This story is a fine blending of action, drama, love, understanding and acceptance. It will be a soothing, fast thought provoking altogether very pleasant read for a rainy Sunday afternoon. If you love cowboys, horses, and all things western, then this may be the new series you've been looking for!

This was a very enjoyable

This was a very enjoyable read. Heroine's father was a cutter and put horses first. Loved his daughter but left his wife and daughter for the circuit. Hero married his love who was a barrel racer. It killed her. He believes you only get one true love. She believes all cutters will abandon family for the horses. It is a disease they all seem to have.The only reason that I dropped the rating from 4 to 3 is that this angst is carried on a bit too long in my opinion. The character growth was however well planned out especially for the heroine. Echos of Sleepless in Seattle abound and in fact referred to in the story. Very touching scene at the conclusion.

Weak conflict. Very, very

Weak conflict. Very, very weak conflict. I also felt like the characters were caricatures, rather than feeling like real people (and I'm a Texan who's married to a cowboy...story takes place in Texas and involves cowboys).
