About the Author

Sara Richardson grew up chasing adventure in Colorado's rugged mountains. She's climbed to the top of a 14,000 foot peak at midnight, swum through Class IV rapids, completed her wilderness first-aid certification, and spent seven days at a time tromping through the wilderness with a thirty-pound backpack strapped to her shoulders.

Eventually Sara did the responsible thing and got an education in writing and journalism. After a brief stint in the corporate writing world, she stopped ignoring the voices in her head and started writing fiction. Now she uses her experience as a mountain adventure guide to write stories that incorporate adventure with romance. Still indulging her adventurous spirit, Sara lives and plays in Colorado with her saint of a husband and two young sons.

Everly has rough past and she escaped fancy life and created her own little paradise as a contractor on a farm. But it seems that once again she will have to find something new because she got a new landlord who is not thinking about expending her lease. Mateo is bronc rider and is thinking about retirement and to provide his family he is planning on building a resort on newly bought land. The attraction between Everly and Mateo is very strong and Everly try to show Mateo what land means to town and people. Both are well-developed characters. Mateo has a hero complex which he finds to suppress toward the end of the book. Kendall is a person with great heart and with the will to help others. The book is enjoyable to read the end was a little bit too corny sweet but it was great to see their HEA. I volunteered to review an ARC of this book for Netgelly

True-Blue Cowboy was one of the best, fell good, sweet and heartwarming stories I've read in a very long time. Richardson knows how to write lovable characters with heart. I received this ARC copy of True-Blue Cowboy from Forever (Grand Central Publishing). This is my honest and voluntary review.

I liked this story quite a bit. I was really excited to give this book a try after reading a novella written by Sara Richardson recently and enjoying it. I was not disappointed. This book is listed as the fourth book in the Rocky Mountain Riders series but works perfectly fine as a stand alone novel. Once I started reading this story I didn't want to stop and ended up finishing it in a single day. I am so glad that I decided to pick up this book. Everly lives on a farm and runs a farm to table restaurant. She is finally living the life that she wants and is very happy even when her livestock gives her a rough time. Mateo is a bronc rider who decides to buy some land as an investment. He feels a lot of responsibility for his family and worries about what will happen when he can no longer compete. The land that Mateo buys is the same land that Everly rents and had hoped to buy herself someday. An entertaining series of events leaves them sharing a home on the land and getting to know each other a lot better. I loved Everly from the start. She isn't afraid of hard work and is a very patient person. She had been living a completely different life but realized that it wasn't really what she wanted so she made some changes and really is doing what makes her happy. Even when things don't go the way she hoped they would, she is able to stay positive and try to look for new solutions. Mateo really was a good guy as well. He bought the land in order to provide security for himself and his family. He really found himself in a difficult situation and didn't want to cause any trouble for Everly. I loved these two together. They had a whole lot of chemistry from the very beginning and I think that it grew as they got to know each other better. Even when they seemed to be the opposite side of things the pull between them never stopped. I liked that they were honest with each other and seemed to want to open up to each other. It was just a whole lot of fun watching these two come together. I would recommend this book to others. I had a great time with this pair and couldn't help but want to seem them make it work. I think that this book was a really nice blend of great characters, a believable romance, some humor, and a few intense moments. I would not hesitate to read more from Sara Richardson in the future. I received a review copy of this book from Forever (Grand Central Publishing).

True-Blue Cowboy by Sara Richardson And Saved by the Cowboy by A.J. Pine True-Blue Cowboy is the fourth book in the Rocky Mountain Riders series about Raines’s Renegades. Gunner Raines took Mateo Torres under his wing when Mateo was 16 and taught him the art of bronc riding. As a champion rider, Mateo had been supporting his younger sister in college and sending money to his mother and other two sisters’ in Mexico. Lately he has begun to realize he needed to ensure his financial future outside of the rodeo circuit. During the off season, Mateo purchases a piece of property for development in the Colorado Mountains in the small town of Topaz Falls. The property is currently home to Everly Brooks who has a small farm that supports the popular local restaurant on the property. As Mateo learns more and more about Everly, the farm animals, the restaurant and the life Everly has created, he begins to question his development plans for the property. Sara creates an enjoyable read with likable characters that I highly recommend. The book also includes a novelette by A.J. Pine titled “Saved by the Cowboy”. Sheriff Cash Hawkins was expecting a quiet Saturday night enjoying his favorite barbeque sandwich when a Volkswagen Bug comes speeding down Main Street. Olivia Belle, dressed in a ball gown, without a driver’s license is in a hurry to check into the local bed and breakfast before the door is locked. Olivia is on a mission to find the letter’s her Grandfather wrote to her Grandmother while he was serving in Vietnam. She thinks if she can read the letter’s she can find the secret to love. A.J. does a great job developing the character and telling an engaging story. I would hope she is setting the stage for further stories based on the two characters. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this novel.

Everly has found her heart in a small town, running a cafe and tending her small family of farm animals. Away from her past, the heartbreak and the life she had that went up in flames. Happy and content now, she has finally found home, teaches cooking classes to the older menfolk in town, baking the best baked goods around and her famous scones; all this while chasing her too often wayward duck, rounding up her chickens for the night and let's not forget the goats. Things change for her when Mateo Torres comes back to town, a champion bull rider and he's training for yet another competition. He takes care of his mother and two sisters back in Mexico, and the youngest sister in college in Washington. When a chance to secure a future for his family comes up he takes it, without thinking of the repercussions it would have. He's just bought the land that Everly leases which includes her cafe, farm and the house she lives in. His plan is to mow it all down and along with another local developer build condos and amenities for wealthy people. He doesn't know how much longer he can ride the circuit, his oldest brother has been missing for years which he feels tremendous guilt over, he overcompensates with his family and also falls for Everly. Problem is that he fails to mention to her that when her lease expires in two months he won't be renewing it. Worse yet, he doesn't tell Everly in a timely fashion and tells her after they have become intimate. Frankly there were a couple things about the story I didn't like, which I should hold on until I say what I did like. The plot is great, I loved Everly and the whole story made me homesick for the farm I grew up on. The townspeople were delightful and I loved the 3 older men she had cooking lessons with. There were a lot of good laughs in this story. The story flowed well enough. Leads me around to what I didn't like, first off her three friends. Darla was the worst. I get that we all have that one slutty friend who likes to talk about who she wants to nail or thinks one of her friends should, but all she does is run her mouth. She grated on my nerves in the worst way and didn't add to the story. She was distracting as ____. Secondly and main character, Mateo. History aside, he was a coward and didn't really measure up to that hero status that we find in so many other books. I don't think he was anything special and could easily have slid into a secondary character role. Not to mention his behavior and deceit. Even his bud Levi pointed out how wrong that was. He waits until zero hour to try and make things right and for me it was too little too late. I would have told him thanks but no thanks. He lacked that cowboy charm. I love cowboys and a good cowboy story just makes it all the better. Everly deserved better especially after everything she'd been through and what a wonderful little niche she had carved out for herself, on her own. With no help. But despite all that, still a great story and a good read. *arc from NetGalley and publisher for an honest review* (less)

Loved this book. I couldn't put it down. Everly is a big city girl gone country. She has opened her own restaurant right on her little farm she rents. She has a heart of gold but she is a bit feisty as Mateo finds out. Mateo has plans of his own for the property when he buys it. He is gonna make this his retirement but not as a farm. He soon discovers maybe what he thought was his dream just night not be. Can't wait for the next book to come out!!

Everly Brooks is making big changes in her life, she's saying goodbye to the glitz and glamour of the city, and saying hello to the countryside in Colorado... it's a big step, but a step in the direction to her dream. She wants to grow her own produce, raise her own chickens, and take that farm fresh product and put it on the tables of her new restaurant, but before it really starts taking shape she hits a minor roadblock, a sexy roadblock at that! When she learns that her new landlord has big plans for the land she is renting, she is beside herself, she thought she left all the drama back in the city... and if fighting over the land wasn't bad enough, now she has to fight panty-melting advances from him too! When Mateo Torres waltzes back in to town and discovers that a stubborn beauty has moved onto his land and has big plans for it, he knows he is going to have a fight on his hands. His plan was to strike a deal with some developers and put together a beautiful, profitable resort on the land, that would support his family. But now he realizes that a city girl has decided to move to the country and try her hand at gardening and farming and has every intention of doing it on his land, which will happen over his dead body. But maybe, just maybe there is a compromise on the horizon... True-Blue Cowboy is the latest installment in the Rocky Mountain Riders series, and it is every bit as amazing as the novels it follows, the characters were perfectly crafted, the story line was absorbing, and Ms. Richardson's wonderful words left an favorable impression!! There was so much to like about this tale, the heroine and hero really brought their a-game, both were stubborn as heck, but both were not immune to the charms of the other, which meant there was a lot of angst... and A LOT of smoldering heat!! With each page I turned the deeper I fell into their delightful little world, where they kept me thoroughly entertained, made me feel right at home, and had me dreading our goodbye... but when the time came I walked away with a happy heart! Highly recommend this one!! I requested an advanced copy of this title, and I am voluntarily leaving my honest opinion.

5 Stars for "True-Blue Cowboy" ARC Review I absolutely loved this book and the cowboys! Mateo and Everly pulled me in to their story from the beginning. I couldn't put it down and finished it in one night. Besides their love story there is action and obstacles to overcome. I highly recommend this book and the "Rocky Mountain Riders" series. Book 1: Hometown Cowboy Book 2: Comeback Cowboy Book 3: Renegade Cowboy Book 4: True-Blue Cowboy

Everly is finally doing something she loves when Mateo comes into her life things seem to be going against everything she has planned. Mateo will stop at nothing to do everything for his family. Can they both do what they love and protect their hearts? I really enjoyed the books I have read in this series and this book did not disappoint. I really loved the friendships. I loved how a town can rally around each other and support each other. I really enjoyed how sweet, independent Everyly is she is hands down one of my favorite characters in this series. I really also loved reading about Kenna and I hope that she has a story coming one day. This book seemed like it flew and was a real page turner, I was kind of sad to see it end I can't wait for more. If you have never read any book in this series you can't go wrong. I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley. I was under no obligation to post a review and have given my honest opinion.

Mateo knows his way around stubborn animals, but's he clueless when it comes to feisty women. Everly is one complication he doesn't need. She is as stubborn as a mule, but as tempting as the land is rugged. A big city girl with a love for the simple life, Everly sets out to make herself happy. When that goal finds her in Colorado working on a farm, she starts to make plans. Those plans do not include bullheaded cowboys. Mateo may be easy on the eyes, but a pain in every other sense. How can she possibly be attracted to a jerk? Prepare to be charmed by True-Blue Cowboy. Richardson puts ego to the test between a firecracker of a city girl and a hard headed country boy. Who will win this call of the wild? A side-splitting, heartwarming, irresistible good time.
