Turners: 1, Coopers: 1
Lance Cooper knows he shouldn’t try to escape his present problems by focusing on the past, but running Chance Creek’s Fourth of July Revolutionary War re-enactment is far easier than sorting out his family’s long-running feud with the Coopers. At least it was until Maya Turner joins the historical society and upsets all his plans.
Maya Turner loves history, but Chance Creek’s re-enactments are boring—and far too predictable. Everyone knows who won the Revolutionary War, after all. Why shouldn’t they inject some drama—and sexy intrigue—into the annual event?
It’s bad enough Maya’s ideas are catching on with the rest of the re-enactment committee. It’s worse Lance’s heart is betraying him, too. How can he fall for her knowing how her family destroyed his?
But the past has its own secrets—and learning them can change everything…

Loyalty in abundance
This story about the building relationship between Lance Cooper and Maya Turner is looking set to be doomed by the feud between their two families that goes back generations. They are torn between their loyalties to their families and their growing feelings for each other. This is all set amidst the background of saving the local historical museum which they both have an interest in. They eventually come to realise that their first loyalty should be to themselves and each other. I liked the fact that Lance’s character, though handsome , was not always portrayed as the perfect man. It made him seem more of a real character. I enjoyed their story and all of the family secrets that were gradually revealed. I did find the end if the re-enactment scene a little hard to believe.
My favourite Cora Seton book
I’ve loved Cora seton’s books since I first came across the cowboys of chance creek series. Her ability to craft unique characters and make me love them too makes each book extremely enjoyable. Also, every new character added comes back again in other books and they all fit together so well to create a real community in my mind. This book in particular is full of such characters and their antics made me laugh out loud on several occasions. I re-read them all when I need a break and a relaxing read but this is one of the first I come back to again and again.
The Cowboy's Hidden Bride
Lance and Maya's families are at war but that doesn't stop them wanting to be together. Despite all that life throws at them Lance and Maya fight to be together.
I found this to be a truly lovely, inspiring and delightful story with such likeable characters. There was plenty of content with interesting scenes which made this a perfect book to read. I really enjoyed it and highly recommend this to you.
