Any contemporary romance reader can tell you, cowboys are hot! And no one is hotter than Joe Daniels, the sexy ranch-hand hero of Lori Wilde’s The Cowboy Takes a Bride. The first book in Wilde’s exciting series set in Jubilee, Texas—a small town full of horses, cowboys, and more romance than you can shake a stick at—The Cowboy Takes a Bride is the kind of western-set love story that bestselling romance authors Linda Lael Miller and Kat Martin are famous for. Readers who love books by Susan Wiggs, Susan Mallery, and Sherryl Woods will fall passionately in love with cowboy Joe as he and a beautiful failed wedding planner try to make a go at a falling down ranch and find that their hearts are leading them straight to the altar.

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.

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.

Was your typical romance......grieving widower, two people too stubborn to admit they love each other, glad I only paid 99 cents for this book!

¿The Cowboy Takes a Bride¿ is a new and quirky title from one of our favorite romantic authors Lori Wilde and it appears that this is book one in a new series. Mariah, who is a bit down on her luck after losing her job as an assistant wedding planner in Chicago has just been offered a lifeline of sorts, when her estranged father dies and he leaves her his ranch. Her father hadn¿t spoken to her since he left her mother and herself years ago, so finding out he is dead, while a shock, isn¿t that big of an emotional deal. On the other hand, is it?So now Mariah is back in Jubilees Texas on this so-called ranch and she is trying her hardest to remain unaffected by the yummy cowboy she has found naked in what she thinks is her ranches horse trough her very first day there. Now sparks are flying when mostly naked cowboy, Joe Daniel¿s can¿t keep his eyes to himself and it gets harder and harder for him to keep on remembering his deceased wife and that he will never fall in love again. And he most certainly will NOT fall for a citified woman like Mariah!This novel is a sweet, gentle, fun, blending of a story of woman who wants to stay citified but was born country. It is about the big, chivalrous, yummy, cowboy that finally breaks down her defenses. This story is a fine blending of action, drama, love, understanding and acceptance. It will be a soothing, fast thought provoking altogether very pleasant read for a rainy Sunday afternoon. If you love cowboys, horses, and all things western, then this may be the new series you¿ve been looking for!

In addition - I'm pretty sure i have read it before and it was just ok then too. It drug toward the end and was predictable - including the baby from a one noc stand. Porn scenes were not necessary and boring.
