Ride 'em, cowboy. Giddy up.

This is a rodeo roper tale that's less about the event and more about the men and their mounts. It emphasizes the special relationship between the man and his trusted partner. Evan's been doing the circuit with his friend for awhile now and doing okay.

Until, tragedy happens.

What he then finds makes all the difference in his quiet life. Things are better than they've ever been for Evan except, he really needs cell phone insurance. And one night, he gets really lucky.

I have a bit of a bias in favor of J.L. Langley…and no problem admitting it, either. She was the author that got me sucked into this genre, and as such I tend to love all her stuff no matter what.

When I first discovered her, I went out and read almost everything by her that I could find.

This is a story about a man and his horse. It’s an oldie but goodie that I’ve enjoyed for quite a while and to be honest, I think it’s one of Langley’s more forgotten works, though it’s quite good. One Good Favor is a short and sweet tale of fated lovers—one broken hearted and the other who is bound and determined to see him smile again. What I like most about this one is the lack of angst and drama. This story is short and sweet, which is probably why it is pass

Warning: This review might contain what some people consider SPOILERS.

Rating: 8/10

- Again, this is a story with an unusual and intriguing plot element. There are hints about the solution to the mystery all over the place, but they didn’t bother me at all because the plot is definitely secondary to the romance.
- The authors do a good job of depicting a believable western world that’s still fairytaleish and at times, really funny: the main character is a rodeo cowboy, and he faces his shar

JL has been talking since she was about seven months old. To those who know her it comes as no surprise, in fact, most will tell you she hasn’t shut up since. At eighteen months, she was speaking in full sentences. Imagine if you will the surprise of her admirers when they complimented her mother on “what a cute little boy” she had and received a fierce glare from said little boy and a very loud c ...more
