The Bride Wore Spurs



The Cowgirl Takes a Husband!

To keep the Texas ranch she loves, Hannah Parrish will wed a man she doesn't. Cowpokes won't take orders from a young, single female. But while her exasperating neighbor Matt Walker jokes about her being a mere debutante, Hannah is a rancher to the core. Just like Matt.  "Will you marry me?" It's a question widowed Matt never intended to ask again. Now spirited Hannah is asking him for a marriage of convenience! Yet whether she's birthing a calf or caring for a young orphan, the tomboy next door is becoming the partner Matt always hoped for. Now he must convince her the greatest strength comes in trusting your heart to another—and your future to God.…

My Review:

If you love your Westerns with a liberal dose of romance, then this is the book for you! Dean managed to lasso me in on the very first page and I was hog-tied until the very last word. Now I'm branded for life and rarin' to read more Wild West romances from this author. :-) Sorry, I couldn't resist.

Conflict clashes with desire as Hannah and Matt fight to protect their hearts...and the lifestyle they love. Matt's fighting demons from his past and Hannah is fighting for respect in a world of cowboys. They are often at cross-purposes but that doesn't mean the sparks don't fly! Their romance heats up by slow degrees page by page making this a love story to savor.
