Come Love A CowboyEight Tales of Cowboy love, eight authors with their own distinct styles creating an anthology of short stories that will warm even the coldest hearts. Some have a touch (or more)of danger, others a paranormal flare, but each will rope you in, and keep you reading!

Border Affair by Hebby Roman
Since she was a child, Camila has had a crush on her father’s business partner, a man almost twenty years her senior. Rusty has always thought of her as a niece. His life was filled with marriage and divorce while hers was filled with growing up, being a teen and finally becoming an adult. Now he is faced with a strong-willed young woman filled with fire and passion, is he responding to his ego and a midlife crisis or has love crossed the barriers of age? When Camila is kidnapped, will Rusty react as an uncle or a lover? Hebby Roman gives us the determination of youth to go for what they want and damn the consequences, while opening the eyes of an older man to the woman she has become.

Three for The Win by Keta Diablo
You know what they say about nice guys, that they always finish last? This time the nice guy got the prize, but not in the way he wanted. Hollis and Stede were an item, Eli was Stedes’ best buddy and had been friends with Hollis since childhood. When circumstances forced the mysterious Stede to enlist or go to prison, he left behind more than he knew and Eli stepped up to take care of Hollis, even though he knew her heart belonged to Stede. Two years later and Stede is back, trouble hot on his tail and he is bringing it straight to Hollis’s front door. Better grab some tissues for this one, Keta Diablo is pulling no punches with this one.

Leaving Necessity by Margo Bond Collins
Clara would never have returned if she hadn’t become the owner of Necessity’s largest employer. Part of her uncle’s will states she had to learn the business before she could sell it. A New Yorker through and through now, coming back only opened old wounds when she is forced to work with the man who broke her heart. Mac would do anything to turn back the clock, but first he must find a way to convince Clara that he needs her as much as the town needs her company. She is too sharp to fall for his charm, but doesn’t everyone deserve a second chance

The Shape of Destiny by Julie A. D’Arcy
He has been on the run from a dangerous killer for years. Together with his sister, they only needed a night’s shelter in an old barn and they and their shape-shifting secret would be gone. He never expected to be lassoed by his heartstrings by a beautiful and gutsy rancher who has no idea what he really is. Only the wisdom of an old lady can unite these two, but will it be enough to survive when staring down the barrel of the hunter’s gun? Julie D’Arcy proves that love comes along when you least expect it and it can come in many shapes and sizes.

Bad Boy, Big Heart by Andrea Downing
KC is an adult now and she wants to get out from the oppressive love and control her wealthy New York parents have over her, so why not try a summer job at a Dude Ranch far from Central Park? Who knew she would become the object for a summer fling with two handsome cowboys? One has wealth and power, but the one with the Bad Boy reputation is stealing her heart. Perhaps there is more to each of these men than meets the eye? Is it possible to tame a wild heart or is it time to enjoy the freedom of living life for the moment, if there are any moments left? Andrea Downing shows us that, like learning to ride, learning to love requires a few falls, a steady hand and getting back up into the saddle.

Desert Heat by Patti Sherry-Crews
Struggling to make ends meet after a bad divorce, a single mom hides behind her work and her son to keep her heart safe when she meets a persistent fireman who ignites a passion in her that she thought has long frozen over. How long can she play the Ice Queen before he gives up? She wants him, but may not let him know in time that she is ready to trust again. Patti Sherry-Owens combines some humorous moments with a sweet love story where the hot fireman does his best to thaw her frozen heart.

Luke’s Fate by Kathleen Ball
He shattered her heart when he walked away, making a new life for himself. Now Luke is back, broken and haunted. Family secrets can be a heavy burden and Luke is carrying a ton of them, but if he shares them with Meg, he may never get back the only woman he ever loved. She cannot turn him away, but what will these secrets do to their tenuous truce? Is there nothing real between them except their love of ranching and horses? Everyone has ghosts in their closets, but some may be buried in a twisted tangle of lies that may be unraveled in the more ghastly of ways.

Grant Me The Moon by Caroline Clemmons
Who knew a field trip to an ancient cave could set the scene for danger and romance? Tory had no idea the handsome cowboy would come to mean so much when he helps her attempt to clear a student’s name in a murder investigation? Grant was being a good citizen when he decided to allow the high school teacher to bring her students to the cave site, now he would do anything to keep her safe as they become the objects of murder, themselves. They say love can be dangerous, but Caroline Clemmons proves it isn’t only Cupid’s arrow that can pierce a heart.

I received an ARC Edition from Hebby Roman in exchange for my honest review.
