The Cowboy and the Princess by Lori Wilde Brady Talmadge has rules for his life but he's tested them all out at one time or another. He picks up Annie Coste hitchhiking and buys her a meal as he tells her about his profession of being a horse whisperer of sorts and that he lives in his moveable trailer. She gets the wrong idea and thinks he's homeless. She has a small dog in her satchel on her big adventure. She is a princess with an arranged marriage but she's run away from her bodyguards to experience what normal life is. He protects her by kissing her when the bodyguards show up looking for her and then he saves her from the man dragging her away assuming she's a prostitute. She's led a very sheltered life and doesn't even speak the way others on the outside do. She'd be happy to just have a few hours living a normal life and thinks how fortunate if the time was longer. When she realizes she has more time she wants him to make love to her. Love the 'you know you're a princess' sayings at the beginning of the chapters, so funny some of them. He knows she's hiding from others but won't speak of that anymore and he knows she holds herself regal and she has no idea what some everyday phrases mean. So many mysteries about her. She meets his friends and gets a job with the wedding planner and even a cabin to stay at while she's there working. Love the slow stride of lovemaking scenes, quite hot and steamy, just the perfect blend for this book. Love reading about the rodeo and horses and what he has to go through in hopes of curing the sick one, Miracle. When a family emergency occurs he has the choice to step up to the plate and settle down or continue going where the work is... She also has a family emergency that leaves her with many choices ....

This is my first time reading a Lori Wilder book and I was pleasantly surprised by the story. There are funny moments here, but it is balanced by much more serious moments, too. I wasn't expecting to like the princess so much, either. I really like Annabella as a character and found myself laughing along with her. Brady is a good guy, even though he annoyed me sometimes with his dialogue early on, something which changed later on in the novel. I love when novels are detailed in setting and description so this made the story very enjoyable for me to read. Lori kept me kept me guessing on what was going to happen next, too. I kept having the feeling that she was going to get caught many times throughout the story! Also, I like the surprises toward the end of the novel that really threw some of the characters in for a loop. I was definitely not expecting those. Sometimes I can tell when something is going to happen in a book, but that wasn't the case with this one. Overall, a really cute story and a new twist on a fairy tale ending.

Reviewed for Read Your Writes Book Review Blog The Princess and the Cowboy is the second book in the Jubilee, Texas series. However, it isn't necessary for you to have read the first book. These two books can stand alone. Brady Talmadge is a cowboy with a dark past contributing to his five unbreakable rules. At the age of fifteen, Brady ran away from an abusive home and ended up being taken in by Dutch Callahan of Jubilee, Texas. Dutch taught Brady how to take care of horses. Over the course of fourteen years, Brady became so good he became known as "The Horse Whisperer", for his ability to heal and rehabilitate injured horses. Princess Annabella (Annie) is a twenty four year old princess scheduled to be married off to Prince Theodore of Dubinstein, a man she does not love, but feels it is her royal duty to. Throughout Annie's entire life, she has lived a very quiet, extremely closed off, sheltered life behind the walls of Farrington Palace. With her marriage fast approaching, Annie and her friend, Echo, come up with a plan to get Annie her six week adventure of a lifetime, before she settles down. Every girl dreams of being a princess, when they're young. This story is what happens when the princess just wants to be an ordinary girl, loved and cared for simply because she is herself and NOT a princess. What would you do, if you were offered everything you didn't even know you wanted? Would your life still be a fairy tale come true? With The Cowboy and the Princess, you will find out. One of my favorite quotes from the book is, "Everyone is scared. Bravery is being scared and doing what you have to do anyway." This book is full of surprises. Just when you think you have things figured out, think again. The Cowboy and the Princess is funny and tear jerking at the same time. I will admit this review was hard for me to write, without giving away spoilers. I really enjoyed this book. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series A Cowboy for Christmas and going back to read the first book, The Cowboy Takes a Bride. I received this book from the author, with the hopes that I would read and post a review.

Posted on Romancing the Book's blog Reviewed by JoAnne Review Copy Provided by Edelweiss I have liked other books by Lori Wilde and I was looking forward to reading this uncorrected proof. Although different from her Twilight, Texas series or her stand alone books I was not disappointed. I was immediately drawn in to the story and didn’t want to put it down. The premise was unexpected but believable. I loved the You might be a princess if… that was at the beginning of each new chapter. There was immediate chemistry between Brady and Annie although neither one wanted to acknowledge it. Their friendship grew in a realistic way but also had you rooting for them to feel more and mean more to each other throughout. There was romance – steamy at times, as well as adventures, action, tears, laughter, friendship, and love. There was the happily ever after that had unexpected twists and turns and kept you guessing. I felt there was closure to the storyline but was excited to see that this book is part of a series and we’ll be back to visit Jubilee, Texas in at least one more book. The characters were well fleshed out that you wanted to learn all you could about them. The Cowboy and the Princess is actually book 2 in the series and I look forward to reading book 1, The Cowboy Takes a Bride, so I can find out how we were introduced to the characters. If you haven’t read books by Wilde before, give her a try. You’ll be glad you did! Favorite Quote: The twirling and swirling was normal. Right? It was a swiveling car in a twisty haunted house. That was why she felt so topsy-turvy. No other reason. It had absolutely nothing to do with Brady’s quick, wicked tongue and the long, slow way he wielded it. His fingertips hooked under her chin. Annie parted her teeth. He took full advantage. A conqueror invading a new country. She surrendered. Running up the white flag without one sliver of resistance. Pathetic. She was completely pathetic.

Let me start out by stating that I usually like Lori Wilde's books. This one however, was way too silly. A Princess that is at a truck stop and the "white knight" cowboy just happens to stop there? Then she gets in the truck with him and goes wherever he is going?? Really...how stupid is she? Then everyone she meets is so nice and helpful. Again...really? I should have known from the title but I thought I would give it a try. My recommendation to others is don't!

Annie is a princess of a very small country who wants to have an adventure before she has to marry a prince of another very small country.  That is happening in six weeks so she escapes while attending a wedding in the United States. Brady sees her hitchhiking in the rain so gives her a ride.  His plan is to take her to the nearest truck stop and drop her off. Instead he takes to with him to the small town of Jubilee where he has a job.  Annie gets a job there and a place to stay. Since Annie is really a princess she doesn't have any idea how regular people behave and has a difficult time looking after herself.  She has always had other people to do everything for her which is one of the reasons she wants this adventure. I loved the way the author showed Annie being prim and proper as she was trained to be but also had Annie try to fit in with the people in Texas. Annie had expected her adventure to be just like the one she watched in the movie Roman Holiday and was very surprised when she finally realized that her adventure was affecting all the people she was meeting. Brady has never wanted to settle down so he struggled with his feelings for Annie as they grew. There were a couple of wonderful surprises near the end that helped with the HEA. I recommend this well written, fun romance.

I love this series, having read 'The Cowboy Takes a Bride', and immediately searching for more from this author. The series is set in Jubilee, Texas, where the cowboys are hot and their romances even hotter! I love Brady and his 5 rules: 1)Never pick up a pretty hitchhiker. This rule...and the others...quickly fly out his pickup truck window when he picks up a beautiful hitchhiker! There's friction and sexual tension between the two, and you'll love reading how they unravel all the tangled webs of love and lies. Lori Wilde is definitely one of my favorite authors!
