The Christmas Cowboy Hero is book one in the brand new series Heart of Texas by Donna Grant. This book gets all the stars. Five most definitely isn’t enough. It’s only October but I think I have already found my favorite Christmas book for the year. I’ve only read one book by Donna in the past, one of her paranormal romances in the Dark Kings series. So I jumped at the chance to start with this brand new series on my favorite topic, cowboys. And who could resist that cover. Not me!

Donna Grant writing a Christmas Romantic Suspense, with an ex-SEAL cowboy…
SIGN. ME. UP!
Clayton East was truly a Prince Charming with a Stetson, and I loved the Cinderella aspect with the way Donna built Abby and her brother’s story around them and the East family accepting them into the fold, in general.
"It seems like our families are intertwined…"
The suspense comes in the form of some good ole’ cattle rustling, and the romance between this pair fell a ...more
I loved this book! I am not usually someone who reads a lot of Christmas stories. I will read them but I don't really look for them. This book made its way into my hands and something about that cover drew me right in and I wanted to start reading it right away. Once I started, I didn't want to stop and I ended up reading the whole thing from cover to cover in a single day. I really enjoyed every moment I spent reading this wonderful ...more

When I was a little girl, I wanted a horse…until I rode one…and fell off. That’s a bloody long way down. And, if you’re not used to it, that is some serious butt sore you have to suffer through. So, my dream of becoming a Cowgirl never came to pass. To be honest, I’m not great with animals, so it was probably for the best.
There’s a little part of me, that always dreamed that I’d be a Cowgirl to my very own Cowboy. Hubby may not be a cowboy, but he did grow up ...more

This was just what I needed! A sweet Christmas story with a cowboy/ former Navy Seal? That's a double whammy right there.
Fantastic main characters, aswell as secondary characters. I was thrilled that it was a true romance. The drama was from outside sources, not anything to do with their relationship. No ow/om situations for the sake of drama.
- no cheating
- no ow/om drama
- no violence of a sexual nature
-a few steamy scenes (could have used a bit more)
-just ok epilogue.

The Christmas Cowboy Hero by Donna Grant is one of those that makes you think in terms that they are real. In the back of my mind the pessimist kept saying, 'It's too good to be true Abby! Don't believe it." but then I kept reminding myself, "It's a romance of course it's too good to be true because it isn't true, it's fiction. Shut up and let them have their HEA!" So it is a little unbelievable but it's such a good story and Abby and her brothers deserve that HEA.

But the book was a little slow. It took me a while to get into it but once I did it was very engaging. There was a mystery weaved into the storyline about stolen cattle and there was romance. I loved the hero and I am glad that the heroine got an HEA. It was kind of a Cinderella story too which I adore. She was raising her two brothers and had very limited funds. One of the boys gets in trouble trying to raise some and the hero comes in to save the day. The two boys were so proud ...more
