Nothing like a wedding to get a girl dreaming of happily-ever-after . . .

Kessed Ling’s best friend’s big day is finally here. It’s especially exciting because it’s Kessed’s chance to show her childhood crush she’s not just a young bridesmaid, she’s a full-grown woman—with red hot desires. But when her long-awaited prey barely blinks an eye at her, Kessed retreats right back into her deeply guarded heart. Doesn’t matter that chivalrous Jasper Matthews steps in and offers a shoulder to lean on. Kessed is no longer in the market for a man, despite how unsettled the strong, silent groomsman makes her feel . . .

As a veterinarian, Jasper better understands a skittish filly than he does willful Kessed Ling. But when fate finds him playing ranch hand alongside the raven-haired beauty, Jasper realizes she’s a woman running scared—and he’s just the man to tame her. So with soothing words and bold kisses, Jasper sets out to show Kessed how good it can be between a man and a woman.  Especially when the man is falling hard and fast in love . . .

“Obsessed. That’s how I felt while reading this book, like every page was better than the previous. Just try to put this down, I dare you.” ~  #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Rachel Van Dyken on Heart of a Cowboy

Kessed Ling has been love with one person for as long as she can remember, but she's about to meet someone that will change everything.

Jasper Matthews knew the second he laid eyes on her that she was one, but he's got his work cut at for him in his bid to when her heart.

But just they begin, fate throws a bump in the road that could derail their entire relationship.

Has Jasper done enough to win Kessed's heart or will her heart always belong to someone else?

The Courage of a Cowboy is a entertaining, heartwarming read that will captivate the reader right from the start and leave them with a pleasant book hangover in the end.

I love how feisty Kessed is and never apologizes for the way she speaks her mind. Her ability to step in and help her friends at moment's notice is endearing. She's the type of person you want on your side.

Jasper is down right yummy. He's a man with a heart of gold, always willing to lend a helping hand to anyone in need. I especially love how patient he is with Kessed, never pushing her faster than she is ready for.

And when Kessed and Jasper finally do get together, their passion flows right off the pages. Their chemistry is electric and can't be denied no matter how hard Kessed tries to fight it.

I rather enjoyed The Courage of a Cowboy and loved getting to know Kessed better. The witty banter between Kessed and Jasper kept me glued each second and didn't want to put it down.

So if you are looking for cowboy that will take your breath away and have you swooning over and over again, then I highly recommend you pick up The Courage of a Cowboy and let Jasper just have great ranch life can be.
