"Cassidy Starr was looking for a home and a place to belong...not for a cowboy to steal her heart."
Deep down inside my heart, I have always had a soft spot for great looking cowboys who have a heart of gold for both animals and romance. Guess that is why I married my own. However I have been in love with Debra Clopton's romance series, A Four of Hearts Romance Series, and her third book, Kissed by a Cowboy gives readers a look into the heart of another of the Monahan brothers, this time with Jarrod, the oldest. While the younger brothers have found their fame and fortune outside of ranching, Jarrod has attempted to do what he can to save the family's cattle ranch business after a foolish debt by a younger brother almost cost them everything including their legacy. But life on the ranch isn't easy as it seems some one is stealing cattle off the property and that is bad for business all the way around. But Jarrod has his hands full with more than trying to figure out who is stealing their livestock.
Cassidy Starr has moved back home to take over her family home as well since her aunt Roxie passed away leaving her everything including the kitchen sink. Cassidy hopes that she will be able to sort through all the stuff her aunt had been storing in both her home and the adjacent barn and open up a bed and breakfast complete with a fully operational organic strawberry farm. She wants to forget all about her past and that includes a marriage with a man who spent more time with other women than his wife and now is trying to mend that portion of her life with no interest in ever getting married again.
She just didn't expect to come into contact with her own first love, Jarrod Monahan who is everything she ever wanted but doesn't want to admit. Even his friendly offers to help her around the property is rejected because she is still nursing old wounds of relying on a man to help with a future, and she saw what they had cost her in her past. She has learned one thing and that is to not make the same mistake twice, but is Jarrod the same as her ex or will he offer her the one thing she has always wanted an that is an honest and true love? The sparks are sure to fly!
I received Kissed by A Cowboy by Debra Clopton compliments of Thomas Nelson Publishers and Litfuse Publicity for my honest review. I did not receive any monetary compensation, aside from a free copy of this novel in exchange for my honest and personal evaluation. The best part of coming to the conclusion of this novel is that there is one more left in the series so readers get a sneak peek of that in this one along with some discussion guide questions that is perfect for book clubs. Like I stated above, I have a heart for those handsome rugged, but soft-hearted cowboys and loved the first two books in the series, Betting on Hope and Counting on a Cowboy in which we still get to see those families that we have come to love again through this one as the family continues to grow. Well worth 4.5 out of 5 stars in my opinion and a must have for fans of Christian contemporary romance fiction!
