This book was such a lovely read. It is not only about the story that warmed my heart but it was mainly all about the characters and their way of interacting with each other. Sabrina aka Laura is running away from the mob and takes refuge in a faraway ranch to land a job as a cook. She didn’t plan anything but fate has its means of proceeding because she is immediately attracted to her boss, a cowboy who has the responsibility of growing up a son all by himself. What she doesn’t realize is that ...more

This book was warm right from the first chapter and continued to be an interesting story throughout. It's a real page turner.

The chemistry between Caleb and Laura aka Sabrina Marconi is undeniable from the beginning and only got stronger as they spent time together. Then the trip to the cattleman's conference in Casper, Wy. which sealed the deal on how Caleb felt about her. The one itty bitty disappointment was the first sexual encounter. It was a bit different than I am used to reading althoug

Reviewed at Lovin'A Cowboy Romance

I had a really good time with Saved by a Cowboy, and that’s the whole point. This is my first book by Julia Daniels and I’ll definitely be looking for more in the future. On the surface this story is about opposites – city girl, country boy. But in reality, it’s really much more. A bit of a mystery, a puzzle to put together adds another dimension to the story. From what we know when starting the story, Laura is somewhat on the run or at least on the way to a ne

Could be been so much better...

Who doesn't love a good cowboy story? That's what I was hoping for when I started reading this book, but straight away, I knew I'd have difficulty. Let me just say, I don't like giving low ratings for an authors hard work, but sometimes it has to be done.
The beginning is littered with mistakes (the little boys name is replaced with the father's at one point - both begin with C), the POV frequently changes throughout (sometimes switching in the middle of one, for a

Laura had had to change her name and disappear due to fathers connection to the mob and having been taken out by them. Now she's competing for a cooks job on a ranch, it was different to owning and planning menu's for her own restaurant. The boss was like no man she had ever meet before, rugged but handsome. Celeb had let his brother talk him into holding a competition for the housekeepers job, all three women were good looking in their own way but one was stood out and pushed his body to react. ...more

Sabrina aka Laura is trying desperately to win the position as ranch cook so that she can lay low out of the reaches of Chicago. Caleb needs a cook not a new woman in his bed. He learned his lessons about women with his son's mother. Now he has three women in his house all vying for the cook position. With all the drama not to mention his heart coming to life Caleb surely has his hands full oh and there is someone running afoot trying to destroy the ranch!

A fantastic page turner

This was my first book by Julia Daniels and I’m so glad I read this book. Sabrina, now going by Laura, arrives at Morning Glory Ranch to compete for the cook’s position. Caleb, the owner, is a single dad to his son Conner. The chemistry is apparent from the beginning, but Angel, another contestant, decides to speed things along. Does she succeed or will Caleb turn her advances down? No spoilers, so grab your copy and see what happens. Be prepared for some surprises, while

Interesting story

There wasn't a whole lot of action or drama until the last couple chapters. Storyline and characters developed nicely, I prefer a little more drama in a story, this one had quite a few storylines going. I was thourghly impressed with Laura and how strong, independent, go getter, and smart.

I found this book to be a very enjoyable read! The storyline was well written and the very likable characters, Laura (aka Sabrina) and Caleb, kept me totally enthralled throughout the entire book! I look forward to reading more from this author!

I got an ARC of this book from TCK Publishing.

I am a complete sucker for cowboy romances, at this point it is something that everyone seems to know about me. I am also someone who watches cooking shows like most stereotypical guys watch sports. It is a big thing. So a book about a cooking competition and loving a cowboy? Yes please!

I really needed a short, fluffy, easy read. This book was exactly the sort of thing I needed in theory. There was low co

Love the idea of swaggering cowboys? Julia Daniel’s Saved by a Cowboy is the book for you! It’s got great characters, an interesting premise, and a straightforward plot.

Three very different women come to Nebraska to compete for the job of ranch cook. The women have vastly different motivations for pursuing the job. Only the main character, Laura, is fully developed and given a backstory.

I anticipated that Laura’s backstory would provide more story tension than it did. There was some untapped po

Running from the mob boss is why she takes the offer to cook for a ranch in the middle of nowhere Nebraska. Will the ranch boss be the reason she stays?

Great characters. Great writing. More romance than erotica and a super interesting storyline made this a very satisfying read. The heroine is truly believable and everyone’s reactions are on par. Would love to see some more of the other couples but fleshing out the main characters was obviously this Authors priority, thankfully! Just enough loose

Good Romance to get Away from it all....

Strong female lead, average plot, but enough details and turns to make up for that. The ranch setting adds to the plot and made me want to move there.

Great Story

Laura answered an ad for a job for a cook on a ranch in a little town in Nebraska. But there are thing's she can't tell him yet. Caleb is a single dad, he and his brother run the ranch together. I loved the whole story.

Julia started writing when she was in her teens. She loved Emma and Pride and Prejudice, but was frustrated by the language and vowed one day to make the stories easier to read and thus be embraced by normal folks.
Then, she found North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell and was immediately enthralled by the gritty Victorian story. The characters jumped off the pages for her, and thus began her "obsess
