Jessica's Totally Over The Top Book Obsession
I really liked The Cowboy Imports a Bride. I loved Rob and Morgan together. They were sweet together. I felt like everyone treated them like shit. I was angry for them. Especially Claire.... She is still a bitch no change there. She treated Morgan like shit in this book too. I love how much Rob worked to give Morgan her dream. This book was my favorite so far.

I don't think I'm going to continue this series. I liked Rob in book 1 and I loved him, I just didn't care for Morgan or maybe it was more their story.

I didn't understand their chemistry but I also didn't read book 2 because I hate the sister and Jamie bored me in book 1. So if chemistry stated there I missed out on it.

The way everyone treated Rob was disgusting and how his mom just allowed his father and brothers to constantly bully him irritated me. Everyone kept pulling practical jokes on e

Just what I, fun and cowboy-rific!

As the readers of my reviews…you should see a trend in my reading: Cowboys, fighters, rodeo cowboys, fighting cowboys, and just for good measure I read some bikers too. So it should come as no surprise that when the opening line in a book called The Cowboy Imports a Bride is “Rob Matheson’s a fighter”, I hit the request button on Net Galley. Rob is the youngest of four and life with three older brothers constantly telling you what to do and how to d

★★★½✩ (This is a review of the audiobook.) Nicely narrated by Amy Rubinate. Quick, fast story that she handled well.

There were story-lines in this I enjoyed more than in the other books, but by contrast, I was disappointed with other parts that just didn't come across as quite right. Or maybe "fully developed" is more accurate. The arguments were not between the hero and heroine (which was nice!), but mostly between the other characters from previous books. Nice change of pace, that. Loved Rob's

When Rob´s father promises a bit of land to the son that marries first, Rob is quick to propose to the woman who´s caught his eye. Morgan is ready for a change in life herself, so after a bit of negotiations, they´ve agreed, marriage and family while working together with her dream of a winery.
Neither of them expected the reactions from their families, though.
Can they get what they dream of, without sacrificing their loved ones?
Contemporary romance, emotions and smutty fluff in a great combo.

An arranged marriage not like one I've ever read before. I'm glad Rob finally got his act together both with stopping the practical jokes and going after what he wanted, Morgan and the land. I can't wait to see what they find out about Morgan, Claire and Ethan's mom in the next book. Also looking forward to Cab' HEA.

This book is a sweet romance. I liked it but there was so much dramas, it was getting on my nerves and I don't really like when a book does that to me. Even if it is the third book in the series, you can read it as a stand alone but if you want to be more attached to the characters at very the beginning, you should start the first two books before starting this one. :)

The Cowboy Imports a Bride is a 2013 One Acre publication. I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

In this book Rob gets his comeuppance for all those practical jokes. People do not believe he is capable of being serious, holding down a serious job or being serious about just one girl. But, Rob is pining over Claire's half sister, Morgan. When his father announces he will give 200 hundred acres to the first son that gets married, Rob makes a beeline to Morgan. She g

This rating for me is entirely personal preference in story-telling.

I am very picky about my cowboy fiction.

In short I either hate it or I love it.

I was lost somewhere in the middle, because the first half I wasn't totally into. I couldn't quite relate to any of the characters in the story. I struggled between them being selfish, prudish, and a bit arrogant.

I wasn't all together sold on the whole, "I'm not a virgin, but I am now, and I'm not going to be with a man before I'm married--oh wait

having read the previous book in this series The Cowboy Wins a Bride. This was IMO a better read. I liked the heroine in this story a whole lot more.

Rob Matheson works on his family's ranch with his parents and brothers. Rob is a bit of a womaniser, practical joker and fighter. But deep down he's not happy with his lot in life. When his father offers 200 acres to the first son to marry and produce grandchildren, this gives Rob pause to think. Morgan the sister that Ethan and his
So I did enjoy this.

However... Claire is the biggest effing bitch in the world. Seriously, I have never liked her, and she just made my dislike of her that much stronger in this book. Jamie whom I really previously liked before was a bit of an ass for the short amount of time he was in it.

I liked Morgan. Honestly, she seems the most level headed and normal out of all the women in the series so far. (Though I can't remember how I felt about Autumn). Though her fears about getting pregnant before

The Cowboy Imports a Bride
This saga continues with another of the original men. Lots of backstory to bring you up to date on the happenings around town and in the couples lifes.
This one is about how the father of the four Matheson boys offers them 200 acres of land for free to be the first to get marrieds.
This book is mainly about Rob and his intended Morgan-from Ethan's side of the family, previously met in earlier books. She runs the family vineyard in Canada and when her half sister becomes

This is a well written and edited romance novel set on a ranch in Montana.

The Hero is desperate to become independent from his father and his family's ranch. The heroine is a talented wine maker looking for the right place to settle down. When his father swears to give land to the first of his sons to marry the story takes off.

Family conflict and self doubt almost ruin this couple's plans, but all of the conflict leads to a HEA.

This is a good book for a light weekend or vacation read.

This is the story of Rob and Morgan, it started in The Cowboy wins a Bride and let me tell you is lovely the way these two fall in love.
It's a funny, romantic and sexy story. Of course there's drama and the predicament if they should be together.
You'll like it.

Great series

Is a very good series. I enjoy reading about love at first sight. Recommend this book if you like a good romance book.

If you haven't read the other books in this series, go back and do that now. You will definitely enjoy the series more as each one continues where the last one left off.

Rob has always been the prankster of this group of friends and he didn't expect to fall heads over heals for Morgan. Morgan was a surprise to everyone as it was revealed that she is Ethan and Claire's sister and the reason their mother disappeared every year.

With Morgan back in Canada the pranks on Rob begin. However the biggest

From the title of this book--The Cowboy Imports a Bride--you might think that the story is about a mail order bride. Nope! This book by Cora Seton, is about the importance of family and showing love and respect. The main characters, Rob Matheson and Morgan Tate, have dreams of accomplishing something on their own, without being dictated to by family or friends. But they also don't want to move away in order to be happy. This third book in the Cowboys of Chance Creek series, is entertaining and w ...more

I wouldn't say I LOVED it, but I did really enjoy reading it. I didn't really like the big reveal as to what Aria did with all the money, it really brought down my enjoyment of the book because I think if it wasn't there I probably would have marked it 5 stars. These books are just so easy to read and a really nice thing to read between books and stuff because they're not super deep (they've got some depth but nothing too serious that'll leave me heartbroken or angry with anything that went down ...more

WOW! What a powerful story. Finding out about Rob's family was an interesting journey to go on. The same goes for Morgan's family. What an interesting family dynamics. I love Rob & Morgan's love story. Two lost souls finding each other & pledging their love for each other before actually falling truly in love with each other.

So somehow I skipped this one and read all the others in the series. I always liked Rob. It was nice getting to know Morgan. But I didn’t understand some of her choices (the whole no sex thing before marriage...even though she’s not a virgin...but then has sex before marriage anyway...?).

The Matheson brothers were jerks in this books. Looking back, I’m glad I skipped this one because I’m not sure I would have continued. And Holt (The dad) this old guy can be ruthless!

Practical joker turned serious

Rob is the ever practical joker but he had a deeper side to him. He has always felt undervalued by his father and brothers and wants something for himself. Morgan kind of swept him off his feet as she was the only woman who didn't want something from him and was the only one who he could be open with with his dreams. A chance proposal and deal made can they make it together.

Rob is a restless cowboy. No responsibilities to speak of and he is bored. When his father offers 200 acres to the first of his four sons to marry, Rob leaves for Canada to ask Morgan to marry him. They had met the month before and he wanted desperately to see her again. Things just keep going wrong and Rob and Morgan decide they may have to leave home to a hive their dreams.

I loved how sweet Rob and Morgan were together. Everyone treated them poorly, but they knew what they wanted and worked as hard as they could to get it. Rob went into the relationship full-boar. I'm glad he figured out what he wanted to pursue in life.

This is the 3rd in the Cowboys of Chance Creek. It is easily read as a standalone book. A light steamy afternoon read. The audible version is well done. Rob's story is a little slower paced than the previous stories in the series but enjoyable.

Can't wait to read more.

It was an excellent read and I have been reading this series since book 1. I do however think that Morgan's dad should have at least showed up for the wedding since everything else was perfect. Love love love this series
