3.5 stars.

The heroine Lorelei is pulled away from her comfortable corporate/city life when she hears that her mother has passed away. She travels back to her small Texas home town rather reluctantly, not wanting to be reminded of her unhappy childhood and her very difficult relationship with her mother. When she gets there she is surprised to find Sam, the hero, at her mother's home. Sam had built a strong friendship with Lorelei's mother and saw her as the mother he never had. But no one is mor

Lorelei Keller is an actuary, a woman who avoids taking risks by her very nature. She has never felt at ease in her hometown, where she was the nerd, or in the presence of her mother, a woman who leans on the spiritual almost to the exclusion of the practical. When her mother passes unexpectedly, Lorelei rushes home and runs headlong into laconic Sam Travis, a cowboy who often passes through the B&B Lorelei’s mom ran. He can’t understand why Lorelei would stay away from a mother who clearly ...more

But her mother's sudden death forces her to return and deal with a lifetime of regrets - and the mysterious cowboy and handyman Sam Travis who has somehow managed to inherit the family Bed and Breakfast. Lorelei and Sam are complex, well-drawn characters with a colorful supporting cast - including Lorelei' ...more

I really enjoyed Claimed by a Cowboy by Tanya Michaels. Lorelei Keller has been busy working in the city and hasn't taken time to return to her hometown to visit her mother Wanda. She then learns that her mother has passed away and returns home to take care of her mother's final affairs.

When she returns home she finds Sam Travis living in the B&B that was owned by Wanda. Fireworks start right away. Then the fireworks turn into sparks of interest.

I enjoyed this book. Sam was a footloose cowboy who didn't want any commitments. He didn't want the inn when it was left to him. Lorelei hadn't spent much time back in Fredericksburg, because she didn't have many good memories of it. She came back, expecting to only stay a few days and then leave. When Sam challenged her to stay, she did. She didn't expect to come to like being back, and she certainly didn't expect to fall for Sam. I liked both characters, and also liked some of the other folks ...more
