Working cowgirl, Payton Hollis, has no time for hairdryers, heels and helplessness. She must save her home, Beargrass Hills Ranch. She also has no time for men. She already is boot-deep in blue-eyed cowboy trouble.

City-boy, Cordell Morgan, isn't who he seems. His fancy suit and slow smile hide dark secrets. Secrets as to why his hands are callused, why he never stays around and why he has really come to Marietta, Montana.

Between a shrewd old rancher, a cantankerous rodeo horse and a stud bull called Trouble, Payton and Cordell have no chance to lead separate lives. No matter how much their futures may depend upon them doing so.

Can a sassy cowgirl lower her guard for a man who will soon be gone? And can a man who believes emotions are nothing but a liability take the ultimate risk?

This is a very enjoyable story! I was compelled to keep reading and had a hard time putting it down. The only criticisms I have are due to a need for more editing. For one, spell check doesn't reveal incorrect word choices. (Burdened replaced burned, for one.) It also seemed that the author is not completely familiar with western terms. For example, we would never call a "halter" a "horse collar." We also refer to rodeo roping as "roping, not "tie down roping." Those are British terms. As Americans, we also add some tiny words such as "he was in THE hospital, rather than "he was IN hospital." There were a few such examples. However, those were only minor distractions from the fact that I thoroughly enjoyed this book. If you like contemporary, western, (cowboy), romance I recommend this full length, (not too long) book.

Great Payton was on her way back from a wedding when she found her cow had given birth to two calves but was only feeding one. She was going to climb her fence in a dress. Cordell was on his to a neighbor ranch and stopped to help. What happens next is wonderful.

Sweet characters that are complex & interesting. The story moved at a good pace, hard to lay down. I was disappointed that Cordell and Payton slept together prior to marriage. Not moral in my belief.

Liked the strong characters, the romance but not porn, and the building of a series of stories

Two people with a past only known to them, thrown together because of two broken wrists, neither one wanting to unthaw, made for an enjoyable read.

I think this is how I would be if I lost my husband or one of my daughters. I hope not. Very sad. GJRA

Good storyline. Nice pace. Loved the twist. Something was lacking for me though. Maybe she gave in too easy, or his secret was accepted as if theyd always known. Something. But i would recommend it. Its sweet. Humorous. Definitely not a waste of time.

Cute, but the writing needs some refinement. Sometimes it seems too stilted and there are quite a few grammatical errors. Makes it difficult to enjoy the story when I'm correcting it in my head.

A very romantic western. This clean western can be read in one sitting. Even though there were less than 135 pages, it was filled with energy. Two people - neither looking for romance crossed paths. One was trying to hold onto her ranch against all odds because her ranch was in deep drought. The other, a cowboy, was looking for someone and it was't to be tied to this beautiful cowgirl. The story is well written and is clean even though there is sexual desire the writer was able to avoid long, descriptions of explicit sex. I do agree that spell check cannot be depended on entirely as a word can be spelled correctly but yet, not be the correct word.

After Payton's parent die is running the family ranch on her own. Even though some years are really hard she won't accept help from anyone. This year is particularly hard because of a drought and there is a problem with her pump so she has to hand carry water for the horses. She doesn't know that her elderly neighbour, Henry, has been helping her. When Cordell comes to lease grazing land from Henry he stays with Payton since her ranch used to be a B & B so she has lots of room. Sparks soon fly between this couple making life difficult for both of them. Payton is a determined woman and very capable. It was too bad she took offence when anyone tried to help with anything, imagining they thought she couldn't do it herself. Cordell came from the city and looked the part of a businessman but clearly had ranching roots. He's a big, handsome man used to hard work. I liked that he just did things around the ranch without making a big deal about it. Cordell did have a secret reason for being there but we don't know what it is. It kept being mentioned throughout the story and got annoying. I liked this well written story about a strong woman running her ranch and the problems that she had to deal with. The description of the rural area and rodeo was so clear I could easily picture them. It's nice to see this was well researched making all the scenes quite believable.

"Cherish Me, Cowboy" by Alissa Callen is book one in the "Wildflower Ranch" series. This is working cowgirl, Payton Hollis and Cordell Morgan's story. Payton is a no frills kind of girl. She is determined to save her home, Beargrass Hills ranch. Payton has no time for men. Cordell shows up in Marietta and he appears to be a city boy but looks can be deceiving. He is also dealing with issues from his childhood. Payton and Cordell due to circumstances and a crusty old man they end up spending lots of time together. They are extremely attracted to each other. The intimate scenes are closed door with great tender and passionate moments. This is a sweet romance with lots of surprises. I really enjoyed Payton and Cordell's character. I loved Henry.

This is a cute story about a stubborn cowgirl who won't let anyone help her and a cowboy who refuses to stay in one place too long. Peyton Hollis has it all figured out. She runs Beargrass Hills Ranch on her own and doesn't need anyone's help, least of all the help of a gorgeous new cowboy in town. Cordell Morgan needs some place to keep his friend's cattle since the drought in Texas has left them without substantial land to live on. Larkspur Ranch is the perfect place if he can convince Henry Watson to lease some of his land to him. Henry Watson has a plan of his own. If Peyton won't accept his help, he will make Cordell stay at her place and pay her rent. He soon realizes these two would be perfect together. Things heat up as they share the house together. Will they be able to push aside the barriers they have created in their lives to fall in love? Or, will it fizzle out and Cordell go back home to Colorado?
