Overview

A young lady seeking a particular kind of husband.
A ranch full of cowhands who have long adored her from a distance.
A foreman who’s got his hands full … and his heart on the line …

Sophie Vandercook leaves her post as an instructor at an Academy for Young Ladies in St. Louis, and heads to the OS Ranch in Wyoming Territory with a plan. It seems the perfect place, since her older half-brother is employed there. There's just one thing in her way – the ranch's foreman, Nate Abbott.

Nate has a ranch to run, a vital roundup to get through, and a bunkhouse full of cowhands smitten from afar with a young lady they all consider Our Sophie. So there’s no time – or reason – to consider exactly what her letters might be stirring in him. Then Sophie arrives in Wyoming.

Secrets tumble, problems multiply, and the OS outfit is turned on its head wondering if Sophie will wed a cowboy?

    "In the Wyoming Territory, where cattle outnumber men almos

    "In the Wyoming Territory, where cattle outnumber men almost as much as men outnumber women, OS Ranch foreman Nate Abbott needs to concentrate on an upcoming roundup. But it's hard for him to focus on his work when headstrong Sophie Vandercook arrives from St. Louis with her own plan--to round up a husband. Funny, winsome and brimming with passion, COURTING A COWBOY will lasso your heart."

    Stubborn Meets Obstinate!

    It all began with the letters. Sophie Vandercook had been writing back and forth with her half brother, James for several years. Sophie had a plan and nothing could stand in her way. A Hurricane didn’t have a chance against Sophie when she had made up her mind. Nothing would do but she finally travel from her St. Louis home to visit James on the ranch he worked on in Wyoming.
    When she gets there, the hands are all acting a bit – odd. There is a long story behind Sophie’s letters and no one wants to be the one to let it out. The ramrod of the outfit, Nate Abbott, a grump of the first order won’t give Sophie the time of day, much less a smile. She doesn’t think much of Nate, either. Staying with the ranch owner and his daughter, Edith is an awakening for the all-girls school teacher from Mrs. Forestall’s Academy. Women in Wyoming, just like everywhere else, are treated nicely but not like Sophie has in mind. She wants a marriage of convenience. He in Wyoming and herself back at Mrs. Forestall’s.
    Before she knows it, Sophie is engaged. Three times, in fact! She breaks each off because it’s not what she wants. If she only knew what she wanted, it would help!
    A nice story of Wyoming cattle ranches in the 1880s. No cussin’, no drugs and no shoot-outs. Just a stubborn woman and a more-than-stubborn man batting at each other every chance they get.

    Unlikable Main character........................................................................
    Sophie wasn't a particularly nice person. She had a steady income --good friends --and a decent job. But she wanted more social freedom. So she didn't mind using people to achieve her goals. She had no feelings for the men are the ranch who were her fan club. The story wasn't badly written but the heroine had no heart. You never see her really show any care for other people.
