Book Summary:


Savannah Baron is determined to turn The Peach Pit from a simple roadside stand on her family’s Texas ranch into a bustling country store. She’s too busy with her business to even enter many rodeos anymore, let alone date. But when a health scare prompts her to search for her long-estranged mother, she discovers more than a helping hand in an old friend.

Soldier-turned-private investigator Travis Shepard never thought he’d move on after his wife’s tragic death, yet with Savannah, the walls he built around his heart begin to crumble away. But Savannah still faces a medical crisis and Travis can’t bear the idea of losing anyone else. Can he find the strength to love again?




Books in Harlequin’s American Romance line are usually on the cleaner side of their romance novels. Often centered on cowboys and small towns they are typically heartwarming and family centered with just a little steam, usually a page or two I skim over.  Once in a while I’m in the mood for a good cowboy romance so I turn to this line of books.

The Texan’s Cowboy Bride was a cute story.  While reading it I could tell there had been stories written about other minor characters. I could tell I was missing some back-story on those people but this still read just fine as a stand-alone.

This is not the kind of book that I tell everyone they have to read but it’s a sweet romance story that I enjoyed and would recommend to those who enjoy cowboy romances. There is a sex scene but just one and it is easily skimmed/skipped by those who like their books closed door.

4 stars

Rating: 4 Stars – Great Book

Content: 1 sex scene (easily skipped), some innuendo/fantasizing, a little language
