I enjoy reading cowboy romances, cowboys, especially the cowboys in Joanne Kennedys novels, have that rough and rugged, hard-working gentleman thing going on that make romance readers wish they could rope themselves a cowboy.

I have to admit it took me a couple times to get into this book, but I blame since Ive been on a Cat and Bones marathon and it was quite the switch from one genre to another. The final time I picked up this book I couldnt remember why I had put it down in the first place. I thoroughly enjoyed Cowboy Crazy.
The characters for me were full of what real people are: love, laughter, and contradictions. I love complex characters but Im also drawn to people who ...more

Hot and passionate cowboys and fun, but I will not back down kind of girls is what we have come to expect from Joanne Kennedy. And once again she has done just that. Only this time she has done it even better than before by taking two people and transferring the one from the rodeo king to lover and the other from boardroom rival to passionate friend.
The author totally rocked my world on this one, I mean really ...more

He unknowingly sends her back to her hometown to get the townsfolks there to welcome oil drilling in and around the town on his brother's ranch. Sarah is also supposed to change Lane Carrigan's mind. Lane doesn't want his brother drilling on the ...more
Like many other reviewers, I am not a great fan of Sarah Landon. I read quite a few books with characters like Sarah and I wonder how anyone could live for so many years with such delusional guilt and misplaced blame, and dislike of others, and actually function from day to day?
