My first book from Donna Grant didn't go well with me but I'm glad I gave her a second chance with this book. My Favorite Cowboy is the third book in the Heart of Texas series but can be read as a standalone.
The story follows an equine veterinarian Audrey Martinez. She's hardworking, independent and passionate. You'll love her dedication in providing holistic care to horses. However, something strange happened in her family fr ...more
Audrey has been just as affected by her mother's passing and her father's disappearance. She's one of the best equine vets and her little sister works with her. She is just as bad as Caleb when it comes to meaningless one night stands.
These two get brought together when some horses at an auct ...more
Caleb has a problem. Something is wrong with his horses. It just doesn’t make sense. The horse affect seems to be random. The local vet is on the case. Audrey is suspicious of the horse's symptoms and with the help of their families, they will get to the bottom of the mystery. What st ...more
It’s funny how you can develop an opinion of a character easily as the story develops. I started off really enjoying both of the main characters in this book. I loved Caleb because he was sweet, kind, and very protective of her.
I liked Audrey because she was different, pretty simple, and a straightforward person dedicated to her work almost to a fault.
But then things changed a little bit especially towards the end. While I loved the way th ...more
It's brother Caleb's turn to find his HEA, and he does with horse veterinarian Aubrey. Lots of sparks flying in the middle of horses getting sick, people getting shot at, a stampede, busted up offices and a hot times in the bedroom. True love wins out in the end, but of course, not without some angst thrown in the mix.
This series began at the end of 2017 with Clayton in Christmas Cowboy Hero when it introduced Abby and her two teenage brothers Brice and Caleb. Now the author has fast forward several years to give us happy endings for both brothers. It's the youngest, Caleb who features here and as this begins he's a love em and leave em type of guy scarred by what he sees as his mother's betrayal. Caleb isn't looking for anything permanent but things change pretty quickly when he meets a local ...more

Caleb Harper was deeply scarred when his mother walked out on him and his brother and sister when they were still small, he wa ...more
I found the mystery surrounding this one intriguing and I was genuinely interested in finding out who was harming the horses. But. The randomly inserted POV of the hired criminal to commit those acts missed the mark in my opinion. He was more of a caricature of a ...more
This was a great blend of romance and suspense that kept me reading past my bedtim ...more

My Favorite Cowboy by Donna Grant weaves a story of a small country town in horse country. If you have ever lived in the country you understand the difference in country and horse country. Donna nailed it. Her writing pulls you in. This is a feel good, sweet country love song but you get a little mystery and suspense mixed in. Life is not all roses, right?
This is my first contemporary romance by Donna Grant and now I need to go ba ...more
Audrey Martinez is an Equine Vet and in high demand. She's come back to fill the space her father left when he disappeared after their mother died. She now has her younger sister living with her as well wh ...more
I have such terrible bookzheimer's that I didn't realise this book was part of the Heart of Texas series until I started reading and remembered reading the other two books - derp!
Caleb has been the hold out of these Texas boys, and I knew it was going to take some kind of extraordinary woman to take him off the market.
Audrey got me from the start (though I don't understand her love of horses - they are the beasts of satan lol).
I loved being taken al ...more
tl; dr: Hot, green beret cowboy falls for hotter vet.
As a romance reader, if anyone gives you an argument about the low quality of the genre, throw Grant's My Favorite Cowboy at them (maybe right where it hurts). This is a very well-written, well-plotted romance novel. The cover makes you think this is like all the off-brand Cowboy hottie books. Sure there is a cowboy. He is hot. However, this book is sort of a thriller, about some poor horses who are in danger. In a ...more
My Favorite Cowboy finds us with Caleb, the youngest Harper sibling, and the one with the most trauma, and Audrey the local Vet, who has her own issues when it comes to relationships. When horses start becoming ill, Caleb and Audrey find themselves in a dangerous situation. I loved Caleb, he had that balance of b ...more

I enjoyed the basic story of this book, equine vet devoted to her work and horses. The suspense and mystery fit well with the story. The back and forth of Caleb and Audrey started to drag a bit. Both stubborn with abandonment issues. Enjoyable read but could have used a little less romantic angst.
In addition to her novels, Donna has written over forty short stories, novellas, and novelettes for digital-first and print release. She has been dubbed as giving the “paranormal g ...more
