When they're caught between an abusive situation and going to jail, she turns to Jake, a man she neither trusts nor respects. She wants warm, loving homes for her eight orphan boys. She thinks Jake's ranch is the perfect situation but he's the wrong man. She agrees to go along on the trail drive to protect the boys. She quickly discovers the rules she learned growing up in Savannah society don't work in Texas.

Reviews of Jake ...

"Exciting and soul searching, JAKE is bound to win Leigh Greenwood new fans. The plot is snappy and fast moving. The focus is constant and the conflict sharp. Secondary characters, as well as the protagonists, develop in strength and intensity throughout the story. Through character interaction, readers see deep emotional trauma beneath a blanket of humor. Only a master craftsman can create so many strong characters and keep them completely individualized. Greenwood's books are bound to become classics."
Mary Thompson, Rendezvous

"Leigh Greenwood has proved his staying power with his Seven Brides series. And if this reviewer's visionary abilities are right, this series will prove to be even stronger. What a fine blending of common sense, discipline and understanding of "boy stuff". Define this as unusually perceptive writing with a love story bringing East and West together, forging an unusual dynasty to be sure." - Barbara Wren, Heartland Critiques

Leigh Greenwood at his best. Jake is minding his own business trying to keep his ranch afloat . Savannah shows up on his doorstep with a wagon load of orphans and tells him she is just passing through. He says I should hope so. She is back within twenty four hours with the bad news she has no where to go. That's when the story gets interesting. Give it an extra star if you saw the John Wayne movie The Cowboys and liked it.

Leigh Greenwood is one of my favorite writers. I have read the Cowboy series and was very pleased to be able to add it to my Nook collection, although like many of my Nook books there are typos that are at times annoying but would still highly recommend.

Just love Jake and all the boys. Can't wait to read Wards story. Leigh Greenwood is an author that grabs you on the first page and keeps you wanting more. Will definitely read the rest of the cowboy series. Every bit as good as the brides series.

This was an absolutely amazing read. I was expecting it to be sappy, with little emphasis on the boys. I was happily surprised to find I was wrong. It's the first book I've read by L. Greenwood, and I can't wait for more.

I really enjoyed this book. It made me laugh and I couldn't put it down until I finished it. Even though I knew they would get together the story getting there was worth it.

This was a great book. Isabelle is a really strong character. Most romance females are weak and I like the change.

Leigh Greenwood is one of the best authors I've read in a long time. I love the 7 bride series, but the cowboy series is the best. Jake & Isabella are forces to be reckoned with.
