Kissed by a Cowboy, by Debra Clopton ~ A Review and Giveaway for the Whole Series (Paperback)!


Kissed by a Cowboy
by Debra Clopton
Contemporary Romance
Thomas Nelson
Book 3 in the A Four of Hearts Ranch Romance series

About the book:
Having lived through her parents' endless string of "matrimonial bliss gone wrong," Cassidy Starr knows when the odds are not in her favor. Divorced and humiliated, her faith on rocky ground, Cassidy is through with love. She's been bucked off that horse far too many times. Instead, she returns to Wishing Springs, Texas, and the rundown farm she's inherited from her great aunt Roxie. She'll reopen the strawberry farm and a bed & breakfast and follow in her aunt's footsteps, remaining forever independent, happy ... and single.

Rancher Jarrod Monahan's hands are full running the ranch, looking after his ailing grandfather, and chasing down a group of rustlers on the loose. He's pushed his longing for a family to the bottom of his list of priorities. Besides, he was in love once but ran scared and lost his shot at happiness. But suddenly, the biggest regret of his life has moved in next door with a wounded heart, determined to become a spinster ... and that's a challenge that Jarrod can't pass up.

Jarrod sets his mind to breaking down the walls around Cassidy's stubborn heart. How can he show her that a cowboy's kiss lasts forever? For the good folks of Wishing Springs, falling in love has never been so much fun to witness.

My thoughts:
Even though this book is part of a series, they can be read in any order because each book tells the story of how each of the three Monahan brothers found their wives. In Kissed by a Cowboy, we get to know the oldest brother, Jarrod, who's finally starting to feel the urge to settle down, especially after seeing his brothers in marital bliss. Unfortunately, Cassidy -- the girl he's never forgotten -- associates love with heartbreak and weakness, so it's going to be a challenge for Jarrod to win her heart. But being a cowboy, he's tamed wild horses before, and if he can just rein in his impatience, Jarrod knows that Cassidy will eventually realize that he's the forever guy for her.

This book was very entertaining, with plenty of humor, especially when reading about the townsfolk, who can't resist poking their noses into everyone else's lives. After finishing this series, I couldn't help wishing there were a few more Monahan brothers to read about. If you love cowboys and romance, you'll adore Kissed by a Cowboy and all three books in Debra Clopton's A Four of Hearts Ranch Romance series.

  4. I'd like to start with HER MULE HOLLOW COWBOY. This seems like the first book to read, to start me thinking about cowboys and what they go through. I could be wrong of course but it's also the start of a series which can't be bad lol ;)
