Cupid, Texas: How the Cowboy Was Won
A Cupid, Texas Novel
Return to New York Times Bestselling Author Lori Wilde’s beloved town of Cupid, Texas, where wedding fever is in the air . . . and two best friends discover that sometimes the perfect match is standing right in front of you . . .
Ember Alzate is a fantastic matchmaker with one big problem: she can’t find the perfect mate for herself! Alzate family legend says that when she kisses “the One” she’ll hear a mysterious humming in her head. Well, Ember’s kissed a lot of guys and she’s never heard a thing. Now, instead of searching for herself, she vows to find her best friend, Ranger Lockhart, a bride. It’s clear this smart, sexy man just needs to meet the right gal.
Ranger’s returned home to Cupid with marriage on his mind, but he’s not interested in the parade of women Ember pushes under his nose. His thoughts keep returning to his best friend—with her combustible combination of curves and sass. No one compares to Ember, but what’s it going to take to convince her she’s the woman for him?
In Wilde's capable sixth Cupid, Texas contemporary (after Million Dollar Cowboy), best friends decide whether they want to become lovers. Successful realtor Ember Alzate returned to Cupid, Tex., from San Antonio to get away from her ex-husband. When her best friend, Ranger Lockhart, comes back to Cupid after a year in New Zealand doing postdoctoral research, kindhearted meddler Ember decides to set him up with church secretary Fiona. But as Ember directs a local chamber of commerce film they're starring in, she realizes she wants Ranger for herself. Amid matchmaking antics and the zany escapades of filming, Ember and Ranger discover that the sizzling attraction between them is difficult to ignore, but they hesitate to reveal their true feelings for fear of forever ruining their lifelong friendship. A cast of varied and richly developed characters fills the pages of this novel, which has plenty of twists and turns along the way to happiness.
