HER COLORADO COWBOY is the first book I've ever read by Mindy Obenhaus. To be honest, I fell in love with the cover the minute I saw it. I knew I would read it anyway, because For some reason, I love when the book is set in Colorado. I don't know why that is, but it seems like I read many books that take place there, but the cover really pulled me in. I loved everything about this beautiful story and I'm excited to read more by Mindy. She has a way of grabbing he

This book was so good! I honestly didn’t want it to end. However, when it did, I was left with such a satisfied and happy feeling that I am now eagerly awaiting the release of the next book in the series! Each of the stories in the Rocky Mountain Heroes series is so good, and although they are definitely connected, they can be picked up and enjoyed without having to read the books before them.

Rocky Mountain Heroes #3
By Mindy Obenhaus

Lily Davis is determined to give her kids the summer that they deserve while hopefully giving her son a reset on his attitude and behavioral issues. Issues that can be squarely placed on her ex-husband's lack of interest in their kids. And his betrayal has her level of trust in others, especially men at a fairly low level. Ouray Colorado seems the perfect place to get away from their normal and where they won't be known.

I officially want to move to Ouray, Colorado! The Stephens clan has completely won my heart and I just can't resist the small town charm and appealing ranch life any longer!

Stories of redemption, restoration, and second chances are near and dear to my heart and this story is a great example of God's boundless grace poured out over our lives. Obenhaus has created a wonderful variety of characters within this little world and I enjoy all the relational nuances!

Mindy Obenhaus had me at “Colorado.” The third book in her Rocky Mountain Heroes series, Her Colorado Cowboy is just as delightful as the previous two books, sure to please readers of contemporary cowboy fiction.

Abundant Blessings Ranch brings Noah Stephens and Lily Davis together, despite their initial differences. With some heartache to overcome, the friendship they soon form is unlikely, yet feels natural—add in Lily’s children, and it becomes a great story of family, hope, growth, and of cou

Every time I visit Ouray, Colorado and the Stephens family, I’m not ready to leave when the book ends. Mindy Obenhaus does a superb job of showing readers the sights, celebrations, and adventure this small Colorado town has to offer, I’m ready for an in-real-life visit.

In Her Colorado Cowboy, we get an inside look at Abundant Blessings Ranch as well as the development of Noah Stephens’s rodeo school. I enjoyed getting to know the horses and “seeing” Noah in his element as he works with Lily’s so

Book #3 in the Rocky Mountain Heroes series, Her Colorado Cowboy, had me at the cover!

Lily Davis decides to take her two children on an all summer vacation in the small town of Ouray, near Abundant Blessings Ranch, where trail rides were offered. Lily is in hopes her kids will have fun without the electronic devices they have. As well as hoping it would change her son Colton’s attitude. But spending time at the Ranch was much more than Lily ever expected.

This is such a sweet story! And I like Lily’s reason for helping her kids have fun with outside of thei
Oh, what a tender and sweet story about second-chances and overcoming your fears! I’ve read the first two books in the series and enjoyed them thoroughly, but I really loved this third book about Noah and Lily. Perhaps it’s the broken vulnerability both characters embody. Perhaps it’s their past fears that they work so hard to avoid and then conquer. It’s a great read for any contemporary romance fans and it can definitely be read as a stand-alone.

This was the first first story by Mindy Obenhaus that I have read.
This was a sweet and cute story.
Even though it was book 3 of a series, it worked well as a standalone, but I'm very interested to going back and reading books 1 and 2 of the Rocky Mountain Hero's series and finding out more on this family of brothers.

Mindy brought to her story a very sweet and touching story on over coming fears and a story of trust and working through heartache. Even with the emotional elements, it wasn't a heavy

Her Colorado Cowboy is the third story in the Rocky Mountain Heroes series, which is about 5 brothers, but it can easily be read as a stand-alone. This story is, by far, my favorite of the series.

I was immediately drawn into the story and enjoyed catching up with Noah’s family. I am loving how their dad Clint’s story is slowly developing over the course of the books. He is a really great character. The feel of the small town Colorado setting is wonderful and makes you want to actually go there

This book was certainly interesting but overall a bit slow. Maybe it just was not for me but I did not enjoy it nor did I dislike it. I enjoyed the previous books of the series more than this one. It fell flat at times although the writing was engaging.
The main part of the plot that I noticed was Lily's fear of horses and how she attempts to overcome it. I think her fear was represented in a realistic manner most of the times, but Lily could be a little dramatic about horses.

The third book in Mindy Obenhaus’ Rocky Mountain Heroes series, Her Colorado Cowboy is every bit as charming as the first two books. Once again both main characters have wounds from their past that makes it difficult to trust the opposite sex but sometimes God has plans higher than our own.

Another amazing Rocky Mountain Heroes-Cowboy story! I LOVE this series and the Stephens family! Great characters, small town, romance, feel good story… all wrapped into one.

This story (book 3) continues with one of the Stephens brothers-Noah-as the main character. Along with his other brothers mentioned in books 1 and 2 and his dad; they continue to expand the ranch to help the community and people around them.

Her Colorado Cowboy is such a sweet love story about letting go of your fears and past heartaches! I can totally relate to Lily Davis’s reluctance to grow closer to Noah Stephens, owner of the ranch where her children go on a horseback ride. As handsome and appealing as a cowboy might be, like Lily, I’m a total city girl. Also, I’m not extremely afraid of horses like Lily is, but I’ll admit that their large size does make me nervous!

This story was a heartwarming tale of two people working through heartache and meeting one another on the other side. I loved the characters, as they developed and got to know each other. I also enjoyed the children and the element that they add to this story. This series works well together or can stand alone, though I personally was left with wanting to know more about the Stephens family and reading each of their stories. This is a wonderful read!

This was an interesting story! Her Colorado Cowboy is about a single mom who struggles with her children and decides to take a summer-long trip to spend more time together with them, and along the way they end up... riding horses and meeting the owner of the stable, Noah. I really related to Lily's fear of horses, because while I don't fear horses (I actually love them a lot), there are other animals that would cause me to have a similar reaction to Lily's reaction to horses.

I love any books with cowboys and this is on top of my list of faves. A sweet read with horses, watching two people’s love story, and wonderful world building. A quick read to enjoy anytime of year and will not disappoint on taking you for a quick adventure whether it be for love, the Colorado mountains, or learning the ropes of the farm.

One aspect of this that really liked was that it features a bit older characters than what you typically see in the sweet romance genre. As I age, the characters I'm reading about become younger and younger, so having a mom with older kids still find her happily ever after made me relate to the balance of romance and motherhood.

Ms. Obenhaus balanced Lily's upscale suburban background with the gradual transition to loving ranch life, providing realistic pacing in character development. The same i

I enjoyed this book. I especially liked Noah's dad and family and how they brought Lily in the kids into their world. I enjoyed the addition of Honey the horse and how she and Lily bonded. Both Lily and Noah had past issues to work through which they did and it was nice to see that character growth. I thought the relationship between Noah and Lily developed a little too fast, but it was a good story. Noah is a widower and Lily is divorced.

This was my very first trip to Ouray, Colorado with Mindy Obenhaus, and I loved it! Lily and Noah were beautifully crafted characters, and I loved seeing them work through their issues as the story progressed. Lily's terror of horses and her desire to be loved and appreciated for her true self were so easy for me to sympathize with--and oh, boy--the widowed Noah's broken heart!
