Love is in the air, and Cupid’s arrows are flying in Rock Springs, Texas!

As a newcomer to Rock Springs, I’m eager to move out from under the thumb of my conservative parents and discover who I am. Helping my sister out at the town’s annual Sweetheart Dance seems a great place to start. I don’t believe the silly legend about soulmates finding each other at the event

For lovers of cowboy romance, you need to read this one, better yet read the whole series! This one is a cute and sweet small-town romance that's very well-written.

I really enjoyed it. Maggie comes from a very conservative and strict family. She is a 25-years-old virgin and never been kissed before. And she is determined to cross some of those firsts off her list. That's where Nick comes in. He was so sweet and caring towards her, he did everything to make her feel loved. They have the perfect r

This was a cute story with a sweet woman who is ready to explore who she really is and assert a little independence after being tightly held back by her conservative parents. Coming to Rock Springs, she meets Nick and both can feel the attraction. But Maggie wants to take her time and explore the little bit of freedom she feels while still holding true to her own values.

For Nick, he knows the legend of Rock Springs states that the person you attend your first Sweetheart Dance with is your soulm

This book was a nice edition to the Rock Spring, Texas series. It focused on Nick, who has been smitten by Maggie since he first met her. Maggie was trying to decide if she wanted to be courted like her upbringing had taught her or if she wanted to find her own way with Nick. Well she's deciding there are some obstacles to get in their way such as Lauren, who will do anything she can to break up Maggie and Nick.

If you are looking for sweet, look no further than The Cowboy and His Valentine. Kaci Rose has written the sweetest of sweet with this book. Low angst, tons of adorable romance, and all the swoon you could hope for this book will have you feeling even more warm and fuzzy than Hallmark movies could ever dream of making you feel!
Honestly the only drawback for me isn't even a drawback and just a personal preference, and it's also part of what I know many people will LOVE from this book, and that is

I've really enjoyed this series because of all of the kids, the adopted kids, the kids' spouses and boyfriends and several sets of parents and a grandparent! This one is really sweet with Nick pursuing Maggie, a girl with no dating experience who he asks to the Sweetheart Dance for Valentine's Day! It works out OK even if they don't arrive at the dance together! And, while it's not exactly a cliffhanger, there are a couple of threads within this story that apparently will get resolved in the nex ...more

"Rock Spring legend states the person you attend your first Sweetheart Dance with is your soulmate." A well-written romance with charm. The chemistry between the couple is hot and explosive. A good ole fashion romance.

Maggie wants to start her own photography business and move into her own place.. But she comes from a very conservative and religious household. One where a courtship means very minimal physical contact, and you always have a chaperone with you on a date. Only she doesn't agree wit

I received this as an arc for my honest review.

This was beyond great and probably the best in the series. I loved Nick and his take charge ways, but also his softer side that made him able to realize his mistakes and rectify them. Maggie was sweet and innocent but still had an edge and independence. I was in love with the book from the first page and throughout. Now I’m excited to read Royce’s story. blog~

While I overall enjoyed this book, I did have some issues with it that took away from my reading enjoyment. Firstly, this is book #7 in this series and I believe I might have rated higher if I had read the previous books first. There were so many secondary characters in Maggie and Nick's book that I was lost. These characters were everywhere. Many times the author added them to scenes with no introduction. I was confused with some of the relationships and felt left out of the group's dy

This is part of a series and I have not read any of the books in the series, so I didnt know what to expect. I have read this author before and I have enjoyed her other books. This book stars Nick and Maggie.

I felt this book was on the strange side. As I said I have never read a book in this series so I did not know Jason or Ella who is Nicks best friend and related to Maggie thru marriage to her sister, Ella. The whole courtship thing was very strange. And the whole no kissing until your weddi

Sweet romance in a small town where everyone knows everyone and everything. Adoration abounds and miscommunication happens but two young lovers manage to fall in love with help from their families and close friends. I enjoyed following the storyline from both Maggie and Nick’s perspective which is not something that always happens in a romance book.

This is the first book in the Rock Springs Texas series I have read but it is written as a standalone. However, it makes me want to read books one th

The Cowboy and His Valentine by Kaci Rose. There is something to be said for old fashion values, matchmaking sisters (and friends), and knowing what and who you want and not letting it go. Nick and Maggie have an intense attraction, she seems hesitant to act on it, so Nick does what he thinks and makes the first move. Now he’s swimming upstream all the way to get back to good. I found this story to be a nice paced contemporary drama with dual POV and just enough steam, drama, and conflict to kee ...more

This story is full of likeable characters and flowed very well. It highlighted the importance of respect, understanding, trust and communication. Both Maggie and Nick went backwards and forwards with their thinking and actions, but ultimately they drew on the support, understanding, guidance and advice from their family and friends to get to the HEA they both longed for. I am really looking forward to finding out what happens next for this group of family and friends, and how Royce will finally ...more

I didn't realize this was a series until I started reading it, but it can be read as a standalone. The story was a little hard to follow in some places. But overall I liked it. The main character comes from a conservative family and they live in a small town where everyone knows all the things lol.

There is an instant attraction between the two, but Maggie wants the space to find out who she is.

I loved the story of Maggie and Nick. We get a glimpse of them in Cowboy and his Mistletoe Kiss. Nick is interested in Maggie but she’s never dated before and isn’t sure how to respond. Nick is so wonderful. He makes mistakes but apologizes as soon as he realizes he’s made one. He tries to be patient and loving. Maggie is a beautiful soul. She was raised to be conservative but is trying to find her own way of doing things. Together they find the sweet and steamy balance that works best for them. ...more

The Bodacious Benefits Of Perseverance -
Maggie was brought up in a very conservative Christian home, but she seemed to enjoy the direction her new life afforded her, after she moved to a new town with her family. Nick felt his life was full, but still missing something, so he felt shaken to the core after he kissed Maggie at the New Year’s celebration. Their path to a happily ever after is brimmed with matchmaking, stumbling blocks, steamy moments and an antagonist who didn’t seem to understand

This story was sweet. You get to meet all the previous characters as well, so that’s great to see how everybody is doing.
It really is as if you’re also part of this small town. Nick was so sweet and caring towards Maggie. She had his heart at the very first sight and he did everything to make her feel loved.
Curious to see if Royce get his girl.

This is the love story of Maggie and Nick. The storyline is all about the Sweetheart Dance and the legend that comes with it. Because of that legend Nick is determined to enter the dance with Maggie.
From the beginning I liked Nick’s character better than Maggie’s. But reading about her background, most of her reactions were understandable.
I really enjoyed this lovely story. It also has familiar characters from previous books.

This was a sweet romance. Nick is so totally in love with Maggie. With the constraints of her upbringing and family beliefs as well as her own conflicting feelings, it was really interesting to read on how Nick will adjust to a lifestyle that is slightly different than the usual norm. I really enjoyed the sense of family and friends as it was such a supportive network.

Maggie and Nick are such a cute adorable couple.
Both know what they want but have different ways of expressing their wants and needs.
Lots of bumps and roadblocks with these 2 but eventually it looks like smooth sailing.
Just can not wait until we see what Vegas has in store for this couple and their families.

I've read several books written by Kaci Rose; she has done a great job at writing a good book; she is becoming one of my favorite authors. I can’t wait to read more of her books.

The story line caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book.

I loved the characters.

This is book seven of nine in the Rock Springs Texas series by Kaci Rose. It is a quick and short read with less than 150 pages. This is a very traditional book in regards to courting and dating. This is the first book that I have read by this author. It was very engaging, and I had a hard time putting this one down.
