Falling for the Cowgirl by Tina Radcliffe is a great read!  I loved it! It is a sweet story about  Amanda “AJ” McAlester and Travis Maxwell who both work at Big Heart Ranch.  They are learning to work together and both battle past issues. It is a sweet story and I found myself rooting for both characters to fall in love and work through things.  

I enjoyed learning about ranching, and raising bison.  So many great quotes in the story like “You’re both riding a stubborn mule in the wrong direction and wondering why you don’t see eye to eye.”  Loved that quote. It is a great read! I highly recommend Falling for the Cowgirl. and think your summer will not be complete without reading it. Trust me.  

I was given this book by the publisher and not required to write a review.

A Defense of Honor by Kristi Hunter

A  Defense of Honor by Kristi Ann Hunter is an amazing book that has characters with depth, serious topics that are well written, humor, and lovely romance.  This is Christian fiction I can recommend to a friend, and not be embarrassed. 

 I have savored this book.  For me it was not a stay up all night and read it immediately kind of book, but one I have enjoyed reading over time.   I have thought about my own motives and reflected on how God loves people so deeply including me.  Forgiving yourself is a theme.
This is a great Regency read that is set more in the country than the ballroom.   It has great depth and I highly recommend reading it. I was given this book by the publisher and not required to write a positive review, or any review

Falling for You by Becky Wade

Falling for You by Becky Wade is a fabulous book. The heroine, Willow Bradford, is a model who is currently working at her parent’s inn and our hero,Corbin Stewart, is a  former NFL quarterback recovering from an injury.

I loved the chemistry between Willow and Corbin, the mystery in the story, and the fun  elements at the end of each chapter. (letters, texts, conversations, and articles) I enjoyed reading the story, and had a hard time putting the novel down.  (The cover is stunning.) Willow is a person who is in the process of learning that God is gracious and when He forgives He forgives completely. Something I was glad to be reminded of.  Becky weaves faith into her novels seamlessly and I come away knowing the Father’s heart a little more.

I am a huge fan of Becky’s books  and Falling for You is my new favorite.  Falling For You is the second in the Bradford Sisters series.  You can read Falling for You without reading the first book in the series, but I do think the book would be more enjoyable if you had read the first one in the series, True to You, first.  I highly recommend this book.

Her Texas Cowboy by Jill Lynn


Her Texas Cowboy by Jill Lynn is a wonderfully written story about Rachel Maddox. Rachel believes that her past will always follows her. She is a lovely heroine who is strong and longs to follow the Lord. Watching Rachel grow and change in this story I could not help but be changed as well for the better. Hunter McDermott is our hero. He is a long-time friend of Rachel and such a lovable hero. We get to watch him change, make peace with his past, and trust more in the Lord. 

I love Jill’s writing especially the details she put into each story. Her characters are so believable and are people I wish I knew in real life! This book has a great flow and I really enjoyed it. I anxiously await her next book and my hope is that she will write many more wonderful stories. I highly recommend Her Texas Cowboy. 

I received this book from the publisher and was not required to write a review.

Winning Miss Winthrop by Carolyn Miller.

Winning Miss Winthrop (Regency Brides: A Promise of Hope #1)

Winning Miss Winthrop by Carolyn Miller is the first in the Regency Brides Series A Promise of Hope. Catherine Winthrop is our heroine and Jonathan Carlew is our hero. They loved each other in the past and the story is how they relearn to love each other in the present. 

I loved this book. It had a great flow, I enjoyed reading it and the pace to me was perfect. I felt I was in Bath,England and was attending the events with the characters.

To me this story reminded me of Persuasion by Jane Austen. Parts of the story were set in Bath, two people who loved each other were separated by someone else, and they eventually came back together. I love Persuasion and enjoyed finding the similarities. 

If like me you love Regency stories you will love this book. I highly recommend Winning Miss Winthrop and all of Caroline Miller’s books.

Claiming Her Cowboy by Tina Radcliffe

Claiming Her Cowboy (Big Heart Ranch, #1)
Claiming Her Cowboy by Tina Radcliffe is a great read featuring Lucy Maxwell, ranch director, and Jackson Harris, the tough lawyer from the city. But wait, who is the cowboy? Jackson Harris has decided that Oklahoma's Big Heart Ranch should not continue to receive funding through his Aunt's foundation. He has done the math and as her attorney does not think it is smart move. His Aunt thinks otherwise.
Jackson is assigned to the position of ranch hand. He observes the ranch happenings while learning his way around the ranch and getting to know Lucy. Lucy and Jackson have a wonderful chemistry and I could not help smiling throughout the story. 
I love the setting of a ranch that cares for orphans. I also love how adoption is a part of this story and portrayed so positively. Cute kids, a handsome cowboy, great dialogue, and funny animals to boot make for a great story. I highly recommend Ms. Radcliffe's new book Claiming Her Cowboy, and cannot wait for the other two books in the series.
