Any contemporary romance reader can tell you, cowboys are hot! And no one is hotter than Joe Daniels, the sexy ranch-hand hero of Lori Wilde’s The Cowboy Takes a Bride. The first book in Wilde’s exciting series set in Jubilee, Texas—a small town full of horses, cowboys, and more romance than you can shake a stick at—The Cowboy Takes a Bride is the kind of western-set love story that bestselling romance authors Linda Lael Miller and Kat Martin are famous for. Readers who love books by Susan Wiggs, Susan Mallery, and Sherryl Woods will fall passionately in love with cowboy Joe as he and a beautiful failed wedding planner try to make a go at a falling down ranch and find that their hearts are leading them straight to the altar.
When Mariah Callahan inherits a small ranch from the cowboy father who abandoned her and her mother, she's down to her last dime after being fired from the wedding planning job she loved. She heads to Jubilee, Tex., thinking to sell her shabby spread quickly, but is surprised by the connection she feels to the land and to the father she thought she hated. Young widower Joe Daniels, her nearest neighbor, had vowed to hate Mariah, thinking she neglected her father, who was his best friend and mentor but he can't deny their sparks, and her side of the story gets under his skin. Wilde (The First Love Cookie Club) fills this series launch with fun repartee and tugs at the heartstrings as Mariah and Joe learn to get past their difficult history. Her fans will be eager to visit Jubilee again.
