“Filled with humor, heart, and love, this page-turner is one wild ride.”
— Jennifer Ryan, New York Times bestselling author on Hometown Cowboy
A WOMAN NEVER FORGETS HER FIRST COWBOY . . . As a single mother, Naomi Sullivan is used to doing things on her own. She’s finally saved enough from working at the Cortez Ranch to buy a lovely home for her and her little girl. Life is going as planned. But when her high school sweetheart comes riding back to town, this self-sufficient woman feels something she hasn’t felt in years: red-hot, unbridled need for the handsome cowboy who left her behind.
Lucas Cortez doesn’t plan on being in town long. Yet when he sees Naomi again-the gorgeous girl he never stopped loving-he’s tempted to hang up his hat and stay awhile. He’s already charmed his way into her daughter’s heart, but he’ll need more than sweet talk and roses to convince Naomi to give them a second chance-especially when she’s hiding a secret that could change their lives forever . . .
Having spent a great deal of time in Texas, I can attest to the fact there is something innately sexy and romantic about a good old fashioned cowboy which Sara Richardson managed to capture perfectly.
If you are looking for a decent story of love and romance all wrapped up in that small town kind of charm which only seems to exist on the Hallmark Channel then you have found the right book. Richardson, whether because she has personal experience or just watches a lot of Hallmark movies, created a surprisingly well-written and realistic story that will give you some pleasant day dreams.
You’ll love her humor, the characters that pop up to make this story flow into an enjoyable novel, the bit of intrigue, the strength in her female character, her ideas on second chances in love and her theme of family. It all wraps into the perfect ending so you’ll definitely want to buy the next.
