As I began reading this book, I realized that I knew the back story to a couple of characters. I was pleased to realize that I had read the first book in this series about Milly and Nick.

In Hill Country Cattleman, Violet has been delivered to Texas by her older brother, Edward. She has barely escaped a big scandal in England and Edward is hoping that some time in Texas with their brother, Nick, will make Violet realize that the man she thinks she loves is not worthy of her.

Violet believes she wi
"Hill Country Cattleman" by Laurie Kingery is the latest in the Brides of Simpson Creek series. I found the clash of cultures, American and British, to be interesting in the setting of the book.

Violet sadly just got on my nerves for a good part of the book. She seemed to be so flighty and frankly naive so much of the time. But as the book went on those things changed to where though she seemed flighty and naive, she matured and the combination of all those things made her endearing.

I receieved this book from Netgalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.

This book is a very sweet little romance novel that focuses on a love at first sight theme.

The Violet has been sent to visit relative in Texas after she finds herself embroiled in a scandalous romance with an unsuitable fellow. Instead of being bitter and angry about being parted from her lover, she sees the entire experience as a lark, something she can use as a basis for the novel she wants to write.

The fact that t
Simpson Creek, Texas—July 7, 1868 is the setting. Brides of Simpson creek book 6. This is the only of the series I have read and would love to go back and read them. I look forward to reading more from Laurie in the future.

Hill Country Cattleman is a cute old fashion western romance. It has a innocent Violet being escorted by her older brother to Texas where a different brother and his wife live.

Violet loves a older man Gerald the Earl of Lullington and was going to elope with him when he
Hill Country Cattleman is one of the first Love Inspired Historical books that I have read and it won’t be my last! While it was a short story, it was very sweet and I found myself enjoying the story from start to finish.

Hill Country Cattleman is my first Harlequin book. In the big scope of things, just recently did I start reading romances. I stayed away from Harlequin for the most part because I feared they'd be really cheesy. I didn't find that was totally the case though.

Hill Country Cattleman is about Violet Brookfield, who travels from England to Texas to avoid a scandal overseas after she became romantically involved with a playboy Earl. To save her good name, her brother Edward, packs her up and ships he
I love interesting characters with a back story and this book is filled with them!

As a fan of romances where the characters have a believable conflict stopping them from immediately falling into each others arms, this book made my day. The author, Laurie Kingery has a very pleasant writing style and a nice way of making her characters interesting. I loved Violet from the very beginning. Rather than coming across as stuffy and uppity the way that many female lead characters do in romance novels,

Before Lady Violet Brookfield falls into disgrace in England, she it brought to her brother's ranch in Simpson Creek, Texas. Violet pines for her love, but is thrilled to experience the West. With her first hand observations she can write her novel! Meeting Foreman Raleigh Masterson adds to the amusement of Texas. He can share local information with her and be a friend as she lives temporarily away from home.

A beautiful fish out of water is a fun theme to read. Violet might be from England, but
I've read all the previous books in the Brides of Simpson Creek series and loved them. So I just knew, barring something strange happening, that I would love this one too and I did :)

It's a little different from the others in the series as the bride isn't the one from Simpson Creek but I kind of liked the change.

I love how the couples from the previous books are in this one, which gives you a little update on how their lives together are going.

I would recommend Hill Country Cattleman and the B
An aristocrat and a cowboy get together amidst impossible odds. Violet leaves England and a boyfriend to come to Texas with a brother to visit a brother. The Spinters' Club has been organized to help match up men and women. Violet attracts many would-be suitors to her refined looks and lifestyle. This is a good romance with a little suspense, some 'catty', jealous women, & some rough cowboys.
This was my least favorite of this series. Just never could connect with Violet.
This is a great series. This time we get to meet the sister of the original groom who came from England. Nice to catch up with previous brides and see the good that has come to their lives and to see that there will more than likely be more books coming due to still single ladies in the Spinster's club.

I just really love Laurie's books, this series in particular. Plus I enjoy the English aristocrat in America themes. Fun to read.
