These cowboys are in a whole lot of trouble—women trouble, that is. When a practical joke kicks off a series of romances, the Cowboys of Chance Creek will never be the same.
The Cowboy’s E-Mail Order Bride (Book 1)
When Ethan Cruz finds himself with an e-mail order bride he never asked for, he’s ready to send her right back where she came from—just as soon as he gets to know her a little better. When Autumn Leeds answers a plea for a modern mail-order bride for a cowboy, it sounds like the story of the century, but when she reaches Montana, she’s surprised to find Ethan’s the perfect cowboy husband-to-be. Against her better judgment, her plan to keep her handsome groom at arm’s length while she writes a scathing article on the subject disintegrates into a night of passion spent in his arms.
Ethan knows he can’t keep playing this game – he has to come clean with Autumn and tell her the truth; about the practical joke and about the state of his ranch. Autumn’s in bigger trouble than ever. Not only has she fallen in love with the subject of her exposé – she might be carrying his child. Can she trust a man she’s just met when she knows too well that men always let you down?
Can a love based on lies last?
My Review of this book
I really loved this book, I think sometimes people do things that they never think they would do and they don’t think anyone will be hurt, but sometimes your plans don’t turn out the way you think they will.
I really thought that everything would fall out from under Autumn quickly with this book, but it didn’t and that made for an amazing story that was so fun to read!
The Cowboy Wins a Bride (Book 2)
All Jamie Lassiter wants is to marry his best friend’s sister and settle down for the rest of his life in Chance Creek. He’s saved his money, bought into the Cruz Guest Ranch and he’s ready for that wedding, but Claire Cruz is nowhere to be found. Claire’s too busy leaving Montana behind to care about cowboys or their wedding plans. She’s got plans of her own – a trip around the world. She’ll go as soon as she buys her tickets and she doesn’t care if she ever sees Chance Creek again.
Desperate to change Claire’s mind, Jamie proposes a bet: give him six weeks to convince her to marry him. If he can’t, he’ll pay for her round-the-world tickets himself. Claire can wait six weeks if it means free tickets and a chance to get a little revenge on a man who once broke her heart. She’s got only one stipulation: Jamie can’t touch or flirt with her – or any other woman – while the bet is on.
Now Jamie’s on the run from a bevy of cowboy-groupie ranch guests, and Claire’s learning she cares about the ranch – and Jamie – more than she dreamed possible.
Maybe it’s time to lose that bet. As long as Jamie loses it first.
We meet Jamie and Claire in the first book and I really liked them both so much. I was excited that the second book allowed you to get to know them more and that Jamie jumped into things so quickly that you would think Claire would have just up and left and told him to go beat himself up!
She didn’t and that made the book fun to read as you learn about how she struggles, her secrets and a little more about both her and Jamie’s past and why they didn’t work out before.
The Cowboy Imports a Bride (Book 3)
Rob Matheson doesn’t know how much longer he can keep up the tough-guy act. As his buddies get married one by one, he’s left with the sinking feeling he lost more than his dreams when he traded them for a thick skin. Now Rob’s father has issued a challenge – he’ll give 200 acres to the first of his four sons to wed. Could this be a chance to become the man he really wants to be?
Morgan Tate’s worked for years to climb the ladder to a top job at Cassidy Wineries, but Duncan Cassidy, the boss’ son, always stands in her way. Now he’s issued an ultimatum; marry him or he’ll make sure she never works in the wine industry again..
Rob offers Morgan a proposition – marry him and split the land. Now they’ve got sixty days to fall in love, and a passel of family and friends determined to keep them apart. Will it take the biggest practical joke of all to convince the world – and themselves – that they’re truly meant to be man and wife?
So we meet Morgan and Rob in the first book of this series and I had a feeling these two would end up together from the start, but it’s not an easy task and normal everyday problems do show up in this book and I love that it’s a more realistic love story, complete with a small distance complication, but that happens in the previous book, now Morgan is back and they have a great plan, or so they thought!
I did enjoy this book because of the twist and turns that made you wonder what was really going to happen to this couple! I won’t spoil it, but you’ll be happy with the ending.
