From Nicole Helm, the bestselling author of the Big Sky Cowboys, Navy Seal Cowboys, and Stone Cold series, comes this breathtaking new romance set in the middle of Big Sky country—Colorado’s gorgeous Rocky Mountains . . .
As the oldest of three brothers, Shane Tyler takes his responsibility to the family ranch seriously—and it’s clear to him that the younger man who wants to marry his widowed mother is only looking for a meal ticket. He’s determined to stop the nuptials whatever it takes, but the shy wedding planner his mom hired is harder to intimidate than he expected.
When Cora Preston worked up the nerve to leave her abusive ex and move with her young son to Gracely, it was a huge step. Accepting the position as wedding planner at brand-new Mile High Weddings took even more courage. But Cora’s biggest challenge is turning out to be the bride’s handsome—and stubborn—oldest son, Shane, and the way the strong-willed cowboy makes her feel.
Can the heat crackling between them warm two hearts suspicious of love?

Praise for Nicole Helm’s previous romance, Want You More
“An intimate, rewarding romance with a hot hero whose emotional growth is as sexy as his moves in the bedroom.” —Kirkus Reviews
“Humorous familial schemes, solidarity, and snark make this a satisfying, intense romance.” —Publishers Weekly
Helm's winning fourth Mile High contemporary (after Want You More) shows that love and romance can occur in the most unexpected situations. Cora Preston leaves her abusive ex in Denver and takes her 12-year-old son, Micah, to the small Colorado town of Gracely, where Cora joins her sister's wedding planning business. Nervous but fiercely determined to be successful, Cora meets with prospective bride Deb Tyler, matriarch of the Tyler ranching family. The beauty of the ranch is only matched by the allure of Shane Tyler, Deb's handsome son, who is determined to prevent his mother from marrying ranch hand Ben Donahue. Cora becomes more than just a wedding planner to the Tyler family as Deb invites Micah to learn about horses and ranch work from Shane and his brother, and sparks fly between Cora and Shane. The wounds from Shane and Cora's pasts add emotional angst and realism to their sizzling romance, which is complicated by Cora's habit of ignoring her own need for happiness. Witty repartee, strong familial bonds, sensual romance, and the backdrop of the Colorado Rockies add allure to this satisfying story.

I received an advanced copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Almost a 5 star rating! I like how the family dynamics were weaved within this story. I think that it’s important for there to be more guys out there like Shane that accept that they aren’t just dating the woman, they are dating her child(ren) too.
I know that a big issue with Cora’s character was her insecurity with herself and her relationship with others, but I kind of got tired about reading about inability to think and act for herself. Cora needs to loosen her apron strings on Micah pretty soon- I have a 13 year old boy and they need to have some space and freedom without their mom “s-mothering” them.
A Nice Day For a Cowboy Wedding
It was an okay story. Just not a fan of Cora. Kind of ruined it for me.
An emotional tale!!!
I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley and I am voluntarily reviewing it.
This was a very emotional story. One that deals with a heroine and her son that suffered from physical and emotional abuse at the hands of her ex-husband. As someone who has never been either, there were times that it was hard to understand her actions. Having the book written in a dual POV format though, helps in understanding characters that have gone through different backgrounds than myself. Shane even had a difficult event that shaped his childhood that I have never gone through. Seeing these two wonderful characters connect and go through the some painful relationship building made for a worthy read.
I had not read the prior books in this series. It appears that they were mighty good as the characters that did appear here were really great characters. I look forward to reading them.
This books does have some intense sections where abuse is mentioned by not in detail or action. I highly recommend this book and author to anyone who loves to read a truly realistic and touching story.
