Kissed By a Cowboy by Debra Clopton

Kissed by a Cowboy
ISBN: 9781401690533
Publisher's Synopsis:
Having lived through her parents’ endless string of “matrimonial bliss gone wrong,” Cassidy Starr knows when the odds are not in her favor. Divorced and humiliated, her faith on rocky ground, Cassidy is through with love. She’s been bucked off that horse far too many times. Instead, she returns to Wishing Springs, Texas, and the rundown farm she’s inherited from her great aunt Roxie. She’ll reopen the strawberry farm and a bed & breakfast and follow in her aunt’s footsteps, remaining forever-independent, happy . . . and single.

Rancher Jarrod Monahan’s hands are full running the ranch, looking after his ailing grandfather, and chasing down a group of rustlers on the loose. He’s pushed his longing for a family to the bottom of his list of priorities. Besides, he was in love once but ran scared and lost his shot at happiness. But suddenly, the biggest regret of his life has moved in next door with a wounded heart, determined to become a spinster . . . and that’s a challenge that Jarrod can’t pass up.

"She was done with tears.
Seriously done.
So over them."
MrsK's Review:
As Cassidy Starr heads home to Strawberry Hill, she is ready to begin a new life. Coming home to her Aunt Roxie's house is just what she needs. Even though she had inherited the house six years ago, Cassidy is determined that Strawberry Hill would make a perfect Bed and Breakfast thus proving to be her renewing foundation. Given her failed marriage to an unfaithful husband, she is committed to a "no reliance" on any man. No matter how infuriating Jarrod's helpfulness becomes, she will not open her heart again.

"Cassidy Starr, I have seen you in some predicaments,
but this one wins hands down.
What in the name of thunder are you doing?"
Jarrod Monahan is a cattle rancher who is way to busy for any chaos that Cassidy's return will most definitely bring into his life and possibly his heart. He thought he had burned that bridge years ago. Besides, with so many cattle missing he had plenty to do locating the rustlers. 

With a town celebration, humorous and endearing characters, unshakable faith, a dash of stubbornness, and reunited love... this is purely a light-hearted romance.

Worthy of your moments... endless smiles will bring a lightness to your day,
MrsK  

Just for fun, just for enjoyment, just because every reader needs to smile!
