Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
When Mariah Callahan inherits a small ranch from the cowboy father who abandoned her and her mother, she’s down to her last dime after being fired from the wedding planning job she loved. She heads to Jubilee, Tex., thinking to sell her shabby spread quickly, but is surprised by the connection she feels to the land and to the father she thought she hated. Young widower Joe Daniels, her nearest neighbor, had vowed to hate Mariah, thinking she neglected her father, who was his best friend and mentor—but he can’t deny their sparks, and her side of the story gets under his skin. Wilde (The First Love Cookie Club) fills this series launch with fun repartee and tugs at the heartstrings as Mariah and Joe learn to get past their difficult history. Her fans will be eager to visit Jubilee again. Agent: Jenny Bent, the Bent Agency. (Apr.)
Robyn Carr
Lori Wilde has created a rich and wonderful story about the charm of small town life combined with the power and passion of first love. Delicious!

    Always a Must Read!

    Reading a Lori Wilde is like comfort food. You always know your going to get something that fills you up and makes you feel good while eating it. The Cowboy Takes A Bride is just like that. I loved how each Joe and Mariah fought their relationship at different times leaving us wondering what the heck they were doing. I also liked how they both found themselves thanks to the other. This is a great start to a new series.

    Lot's of fun if you like romances.

    This is a typical romance but I found it better than most because of Wilde's good descriptions and her sense of humor.

    big city girl, mariah, is willed her estranged father's ranch af

    big city girl, mariah, is willed her estranged father's ranch after his death. it's a broken down 'ranch'. her neighbor is a widower that hasn't stopped grieving for his deceased wife, or her father that he was close to. their attraction is instant, but they are slow to really connect. this is a love story that will make you go awwww at various times in the story. of course, it has a happy ending. if you love love stories, this is one for you.

    A Great Texan Story

    I love stories about cowboys and Texas. This is a great story about cowboys and heroes. This cat and mouse love story is heart warming and entertaining. A nice escape from everydays troubles and news stories.
