This meaty story is more than just second chance romance involving a cowboy and a celebrity. This story also takes on an age-old mystery that is at the root of one of the biggest family feuds of all time. The Cade-Loveland feud is what brings Katlynn (Katie-Lynn) back to her hometown and thrusts her into the path of her former love, Cole.

I was so excited for this mystery to finally be uncovered. I've been reading this series from the beginning and the feud and mystery has gradually built up over

I am head over heels for this Rocky Mountain Cowboys series from Karen Rock. The characters. The covers. The setting. The plots. THE KISSES. Blissful sigh.

One of the most intriguing parts of this series for me has been the longstanding feud between the Cades and the Lovelands, a feud made even more complicated by the fact that the Loveland patriarch and the Cade matriarch are about to tie the knot in a very romantic second chance at love. I love Boyd and Joy – although I’d like to knoc

I really, really love this series! There is just something about cowboys, I'm telling you. The men in these books are hard working, rough and tough, fiercely loyal and maybe just a touch stubborn. In this book we switch over to Cole who is in the opposing family from the first three characters in the first three books. This is significant because there is a feud going on between the Cades and the Lovelands that extends back generations. I love that each previous book gives us glimpses into this ...more

"A Cowboy's Pride" continues The Rocky Mountain Cowboys series with a story about a Loveland. The Cade-Loveland feud is historic and infamous (think Hatfield-McCoy). The feud began when Everett Loveland was found with the dead body of Maggie Cade- and the priceless Cade emerald was missing. The Cades hung Everett for his supposed crimes and believed the Lovelands had sold their family heirloom for a fortune. The years ensuing included disputes over land, which allow access to the water- a key co ...more

I bow down to you MS Rock you have pulled at my heart-strings you have made me tear up and made me smile in this fabulous addition to this series, and what a well suited tile, this describes Cole Loveland so well, and what he goes through to get the love of his life, his soul mate, the other half of him Katlynn Brennon back in his life.

Cole Loveland is the eldest Loveland, stubborn to a fault, honest, loyal and will do anything for his family and the people he loves a true Loveland but what he h
This is the fourth book in this series and contains so many surprises and revelations I found it an enthralling and intriguing read, a real page turner that I didn’t want to put down until I’d finished it. All the stories in the series have included information about the long lasting Cade-Loveland feud but this is the story where the origins of the feud are researched and investigated whilst two second chance romances also develop . . .

A Cowboy's Pride is book four from Karen Rock's series, Rocky Mountain Cowboys. I loved this book! I was not sure what I thought of Katlynn at first. She kind of got on my nerves, but she quickly grew on me as she started interacting with Cole and others she knew from her past. After all the years that have passed, Cole and Katlynn still had chemistry. I could just feel the emotional turmoil they both felt dealing with their feelings. I wanted to root for them but sad they could not find a way t ...more

A Cowboy's Pride by Karen Rock is the 4th book in the Rocky Mountain Cowboys series. I love the feud between the Loveland's and the Cade's. This feud is becoming just as famous as the Hatfield's and McCoy's. In this one we have a second chance love story brewing. I adored it. Katie Lynn and Cole have been in similar scenarios before that tore them apart. Will Katie Lynn choose her career over love again. ...more

This one is an intriguing read with so many layers. The past and present interwoven with many similarities, including hardheaded Loveland males, Cade women who find themselves in tough spots, generations-misunderstandings, heartbreak and love.
This is another fun addition to the Rocky Mountain Cowboys series. Karen Rock does a great job capturing life and love against a Colorado backdrop.

A Return to her Roots

-‘“I’m investigating the Cade-Loveland feud.”’-

Katie-Lynn “Katlynn” returns from L.A. to do an investigative report on the history of the great feud between two families. She’s hoping it will save her career and it will help the Lovelands financially as well. The challenge will be in keeping her feelings for Cole buried in the past...

Another great story by this gifted author! Loving this series!

A Cowboy's Pride by Karen Rock is the 4th book of the series: (Rocky Mountain Cowboy's). I totally love this series and can't get enough. Cole and Katie are just made for each other, and 2nd chance romance, just so heartwarming, it just grabs at your heart. Will not give anything away, want you to read this book and series and find out how awesome each story is. You will be hooked as much as I am.

I was swept away in the story from the beginning. Wondering how the long-time family feud would end. There was so much drama and suspense that I was “almost” on overload from everything going on. The electricity between Cole and Katie Lynn was unmatched. The ending was so superb I had tears flowing. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a good romance with a lot of suspense. Book gifted to me.

So worth the wait! 💚💙
I was so excited to finally read about a Loveland. This 2nd chance romance for Cole and Katie-Lyn does not disappoint when Katie-Lyn makes her way back to Colorado on assignment after 10 years.
A wake-up call in the romance department for these two, along with Cole's Dad, Boyd and Joy Cade, Mother to the Cades we've already met.
The background story that's been brewing is very much front and center in this book involving a long ago love and Cora's Tear, a beautiful sapphire

 Mystery - Perfection.  Finding out about the feud once in for all and seeing the conclusion was exceptional.  Did it fix anything?  Not really but at least we know the what, why, when and how to it and I can't wait to read in future books the repercussions and how it will all work out.
 Second chance romance - There are two in this book.  Joy Cade and Boyd Loveland, the ill-fated couple from the past to their rekindling romance and marriage.  OMG!!  Their love story is epic.  To finally hear wha

Once again Karen Rock has delivered us an emotionally charged, page turning chapter in the Rocky Mountain Cowboys series. She has us seeing the Loveland – Cade feud from both sides making it extremely hard to decide on which side of the fence to hang on. Through the pages of A COWBOY’S PRIDE, we explore how the feud originated and how love, family and perseverance come through with details to explain it all and possibly a resolution to bring both families together a

Old feelings and old mysteries collide as two childhood sweethearts reunite and band together to learn the truth about his family history. Discoveries they never expected lead them down a path of danger and insight. Can Cole truly trust her to do what's best for his family, or will her ambition win out against her feelings for him yet again? Delving deeper into the Loveland side of this feud lets us get to know the family better since the series so far had centered around the Cade's.

So this is the fourth book in theh Rocky Mountain Cowboy series. Or if you've read the other books like I have. I like to call it the Cade-Loveland series. This book starts to follow the Loveland side of the family.

Man oh man did I love Cole Loveland. He's the oldest of the Loveland clan and has been carrying around the weight of not being good enough on his shoulders since his mother died. Or probably even before that, his mother always made him feel like she was stuck where she was because sh

Oh my, she did it again. Another hit for Karen Rock. I loved this book, couldn’t put it down! This time in her series of the Cade brothers, their neighbour and archenemy Cole Loveland has his second chance on love, and in the meanwhile there are three storylines to unravel and follow: The story of how the feud started between the Cades and Lovelands, the tragic love story of a Cade and a Loveland (Everett Loveland and Maggie Cade), the second chance story of Cole’s father and mother of the Cade- ...more

Karen Rock's excellent writing never disappoints, but A Cowboy's Pride might be my favorite book in her Rocky Mountain Cowboys series. The previous three novels have centered on the Cade clan in Carbondale, Colorado, with an emphasis on their feud with the Lovelands--a ranching family nearby--but this one shows the dispute from the Lovelands' point of view. It's an interesting change, causing the reader to wonder what really happened to Maggie, Everett, and Cora's Tear--a missing jewel in the ce ...more

I have been thoroughly enjoying Karen Rock’s Rocky Mountain Cowboys series. In the newest installment, A Cowboy’s Pride, the focus shifts from the Cades to their rival family—the Lovelands. Cole has been hanging around, making those Cade men jealous, a few times. Now it’s his turn in the hot seat (or maybe I should say his turn in the saddle).

As Cole and Katie-Lynn (his former fiancée) dig into the Cade-Loveland feud and subsequent loss of Cora’s tear, they uncover much more than they

This is book four of the Rocky Mountain Cowboys series, and in this story, we take a pause from the Cade family and take a deeper look into the Loveland family. The leading man, Cole Loveland, was worth waiting for. In chapter one, you see Katlynn struggling to stay on top with her appearance and ratings, then mid-way through this chapter Cole makes his entrance and holds you captive throughout the whole story. He’s handsome, charming, and irresistible. Katlynn and Cole’s story is about broken h ...more

Karen Rock is continuing to amaze and delight with the Rocky Mountain Cowboys series. This is the 4th in the series but can be read as a stand alone although I suggest reading the other books first. A Cowboy's Pride is a story of second chances, secrets revealed and mysteries solved. Katie-Lynn comes from a large family in which she always felt invisible. Cole grew up in a family that was infamous for being part of a historic feud, and has also struggled with the trauma of his alcoholic mother c ...more

If you have Kleenex keep it handy. This is a story of second chances. Its about Cole Loveland and Kati-Lynn Brennon getting a second chance. Its also about his dad getting a second chance and solving a very old feud. Its a powerful story of a old love story for 2 couples that got lost by people interfering.

This 4th book in the Rocky Mountain Cowboys series moves from a Cade sibling to a Loveland and the feud continues. While I can nearly always rely on a poignant romance when reading this author's work, this story had a mystery that amped up my page-turning fervor. Having learned of some of the reasons behind the Cade/Loveland feud from previous books, A Cowboy's Pride finally reveals the whole story. As always the romance was enjoyable and Cade and Katie Lynn were wonderful characters,

A Cowboy’s Pride is the latest installment in Karen Rock’s Rocky Mountain Cowboy’s series. Rock brings both heart and humor to this novel. Cole and Katlynn are both flawed, believable characters that need to figure out how to compromise. Rock doesn’t short change either of their journey’s as they each figure out what matters and what they are willing to give up to be together. This book is also filled with lots of juicy subplots.

Another wonderful story in the Rocky Mountain Cowboys series. Katie-Lynn and Cole were wonderful main characters, with a broken engagement in their past. The Cade-Loveland feud has interested me from the beginning, and Katie-Lynn (Katlynn) did a wonderful investigative job for her show that shed a whole new light on everything.

Karen Rock does it again. This story is the best of two stories - a love story where reuniting high school sweethearts in a way that you WANT them to succeed despite the odds against them and a murder/mystery about the origins of a family feud. And the additional substories about the disastrous consequences of telling the truth in dealing with family and how Katlynn and Cole adjust to secrets and family history trying to tear about their world. I couldn't put it down!! ...more
