Book Review and Giveaway - The Cowboy Takes A Bride by Lori Wilde

Lori Wilde is one of my favorite Texas authors, and she has a new series starting up that I'm really excited about!

Her new release, The Cowboy Takes A Bride, is the first book in her new Jubilee, Texas series, and it looks like it's going to be a real dandy of a series!

About The Book:

Ex-champion bull rider-turned-cutting-horse cowboy Joe Daniels isn't quite sure how he ended up sleeping in a horse trough wearing nothing but his Stetson and cowboy boots. But now he's wide-awake, and a citified woman is glaring down at him. His goal? Get rid of her ASAP. The obstacle? Fighting the attraction he feels toward the blond-haired filly with the big, vulnerable eyes.

When out-of-work wedding planner Mariah Callahan learns that her estranged father has left her a rundown ranch in Jubilee, she has no choice but to accept it. Her goal? Redeem her career by planning local weddings. The obstacle? One emotionally wounded, hard-living cowboy who stirs her guilt, her heartstrings, and her long-burned cowgirl roots . .

Lori Wilde is a wonderful writer, and her talent truly shines in "The Cowboy Takes A Bride." Full of down-home humor, rollicking romance, and plenty of action with a dab of suspense thrown in for good measure, and you've got one lively story on your hands.

Lori taps into her Texas roots and delivers a realistic look at the hardworking cowboys and the girls who love them in this story.  It was fun picking out familiar landmarks of her fictional "Jubilee, Texas," which she based closely on her own hometown of Weatherford, Texas. Having lived near there and shopped there for many years, it was a hoot to put together the "pretend" sites with the real-life ones.

As the beginning novel in what promises to be a wonderful series, "The Cowboy Takes A Bride" puts its own unique brand on contemporary romance novels.  I highly recommend this book for anyone who enjoys a great story that will have you laughing and sighing all throughout the book.

A former RITA finalist, Lori has received the Romantic Times Reviewers’ Choice Award, the Holt Medallion, the Booksellers Best, the National Readers’ Choice, and numerous other honors.
