Ana's father has had a stroke and can't run the ranch while he's recovering. Ana is made co-executor of the ranch along with ranch foreman Vance. Vance came to the ranch as a runaway when he was fourteen. Colt gave him a job but made it clear Vance was to leave his daughters alone. He's had it bad for Ana ever since, but knows to stay away from her. Now they have to work together to save the ranch from financial ruin.

This is a book with a lot of emotion in it. Ana is the only one of her sisters

This is the kind of book where you let out that happy sigh at the end.

For the love of cowboys and all things holy, this book was a true blue ranchin' love story.

I don't think that requires anymore words. Country boys speak for themselves.

My Review

4 stars

I enjoyed The Cowboy She Couldn't Forget. It is a clean romance, no detailed sex scenes. Divorce sure messes up everyone.
Ana Slater's father has had a stroke. She is needed to help run the ranch with Vance. When her mother left the family when she was young her father turned away from his daughters too.

Both Ana and Vance's mothers left them with their fathers and disappeared from their lives. (I can understand leaving for a day when kids drive you crazy) Their father's were not m

I really liked the plot of this story. I just couldn’t get into it. I felt as though the heroine had the emotional maturity of a teenager, and she’s supposed to be a counselor at the high school. I didn’t get it. I couldn’t get a feel for her character at all. I don’t know how Vance got over her treating him so badly. She said some of the meanest things to him and he just let it all go. I really liked Vance though. He had it bad coming up and the Slater’s gave him a chance at a normal life, even ...more

This book tell the story of Ana and Vance who have been in love with each other for the longest time but due to the threat by her father, Vance have to stand at the sideline watching over her. Ana and her siblings have no close relationship with her father after her mother leave the ranch, leaving them behind with her father. Her father seems to concentrate more on ranching than on them and dismissed them when they wanted his attention. Now all of them have grown up. Each of her siblings has the ...more
Once I started this book, I was hooked. I have never read something by Thayer before but I found her to be an excellent story teller. What a refreshing change to have a western themed book be clean! Yes! ladies this book has no sex scenes.

The story of a cowboy and a ranchers daughter is nothing new but Thayer did an excellent job in investing my emotions into the story.
I cared about the characters and I wanted to see them succeed. I wanted them to be happy.

By the end of the book, I could tell
Nice little story. Nice bit of angst to it.
