Kissed by a Cowboy
by Debra Clopton
About this book
Cassidy was looking for a home and a place to belong . . . not for a cowboy to steal her heart.
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 ON THIS BOOK
Jarrod Monahan was the last Monahan without a wife, so this was an enjoyable and sweet romance to read. But Jarrod wasn’t interested in a woman and married life, that is until old flame Cassidy Starr moved into the house near Jarrod. But Cassidy was finished with men, she wanted to make a life for herself, without a man in her life. But for whatever reason, the two seemed to always run into each other, and that’s when the attraction began.
I love the characters in this series, and it was nice taking a trip back Wishing Springs and the Four of Hearts Ranch. Jarrod was a quiet person, while Cassidy was a little spitfire. Their developing attraction and romance was fun to follow, even though the story was quite predictable. There are some twists and turns throughout the story that made the story interesting, and some quite funny. Over all, this is a really good read, and I highly recommend Kissed By a Cowboy, as well as the other books in this series. I am sad to see this series end, but I am excited to read more from Debra Clopton!
