Overview

Cowboys are NOT her weakness-until she meets the right one-in this funny, wise, romantic novel about women and cowboys, both real and imagined.

Cassie Danner doesn't swoon over cowboys. A young widow with a still- mending heart, she seeks solace in her new summer job as cook on a Wyoming dude ranch. How ironic that she ends up tussling with Robbin McKeag, the ranch owner's son and a superstar celebrity for having played iconic cowboys on the big screen.

Disillusioned with fame, Robbin has retreated to his dad's ranch to reconnect with the land. But there's something about Cassie that gets his goat. And Cassie can't help but be drawn to Robbin as he struggles to become a better man. Are they about to play out a classic romance, or will the cowboy mystique and charm wear off?

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Even three years after the death of her husband, Cassie Danner is a wounded woman. She drifts from seasonal job to seasonal job, earning just enough to fend off her creditors and uphold her outdoorsy lifestyle. She accepts a post as a cook on ranch, where she encounters the irascible Robbin McKeag, a famed movie star and the owner's son, who recently returned from a stint in a mental institution. Robbin doesn't just play a cowboy in films; he is an accomplished rancher in real life too. So although the two butt heads from the moment they meet, there's an instant attraction, and eventually a strong bond over wounded pasts. Welling's (Crybaby Ranch) strength is in her main characters: McKeag is an authentically unpleasant leading man, but he has (mostly) legitimate psychological issues to resolve. Danner is, of course, extremely sympathetic and readers will warm to her right away. While the rest of the characters quickly fall into supporting clichés, they are at least well intentioned. All and all, a pleasant romance.

    This is an entreating throwback romance filled with warmth and wit

    Three years have passed since Cassie Danner's husband Jake died climbing a mountain in the Himalayas. With bills to pay, the Ohio native struggles to make it accepting temporary seasonal work. Her current position is summer cook at the Cross Wave Guest Ranch and Cattle Company in Wyoming.

    The ranch in the shadows of the Grand Teton Range is owned by a father and son team. However, Cassie recognizes the younger McKeag, Robbin, who was a Hollywood superstar as an action cowboy. From their first meeting the day before she starts her job, Cassie and Robbin clash. Their gender battle continues over the next few weeks until each knows they are in love. However, his Hollywood past that he ran away from has come to Wyoming making it most likely the end of the relationship between the owner and the cook.

    This is an entreating throwback romance filled with warmth and wit. The lead pair shares in common a need to move on and introspective musing as well as love. With a wonderful Wyoming setting, fans who appreciate a tender contemporary ranch romance will want to read Tina Welling's well written tale.
