THE COWBOY TAKES A BRIDE by Lori Wilde
If I bloom where I am planted, do weeds have to show up?
When everything is taken away in Chicago for Mariah Callahan picking up and moving to Texas makes complete sense. Mariah’s estranged father left her his little piece of paradise that turns out to be a complete nightmare but she is going to make the best of it especially since she has nowhere else to go. Mariah’s father was the man she always wanted in her life while he choose to chase dreams and horses. Mariah hopes that this plot of dirt will turn out to be her second chance in life and maybe bring closure to a pain that will not go away.
After Mariah meets her neighbor, former bull rider, and horse cutter Joe Daniels, she quickly concludes he is absolutely the icing on a wedding cake but not quite as sweet. He is suffering over his own loss yet the draw between the two is hard to deny. The pull toward each other is strong but so is the fight to stay away from each other. Mariah has had one man choose his own life over her and she will not go through that again. However, Mariah also knows that is nothing wrong with living in the moment where you are living and Joe could be a wonderful added attraction.
Mariah wants to cut and run but the town turns out to be great and everyone is helping her set down roots, dang it. Joe wants her to stay because he knows with something in his future perhaps he can let go of the past. Mariah so stubborn and full of determination you would never hold her height against her. Building a new life is never easy and when unexpected surprises arrive in the mail decisions become difficult and finding out you are the problem in the relationship is definitely scary. Mariah keeps hearing how she is like her father, like her former boss, and too much like her father when maybe she is just when maybe it is none of the above and she is just as she is supposed to be.
Everyone looks for a great book and since Lori Wilde has written just that put your cowboy boots on and start reading. Let this story take you on a great ride through the difficulties of romance and the price you have to pay for love.
