Publisher's Summary

With her sassy humor and sexy cowboys, USA Today best-selling author Carolyn Brown launches her new Longhorn Canyon series.

One city girl, one die-hard rancher, and eight mischievous kids. What could go wrong?

Every summer, Cade Maguire looks forward to opening his Longhorn Canyon Ranch to underprivileged city kids. But this year, he's having no luck finding a counselor for the children - until Retta Palmer walks through his door.

Flat broke after selling everything she owns to pay her father's medical bills, Retta is thrilled to hear of an opening for a counselor position. She's not as thrilled about the ranching part, or the sexy cowboy with beautiful blue eyes who's her new boss.

After being left at the altar two years before by his fiancée, Cade isn't sure he can take another heartbreak. And Retta isn't even sure she wants to stay. But the sparks between them are absolutely undeniable. And with a couple of lovable kids and two elderly folks playing matchmaker, Cade and Retta may find that the best way to heal is with each other.

Engaging Low Key Cowboy Drama

Cowboy Bold had a unique, heartwarming theme involving a ranch family that provides a free summer program for inter-city children. Cowboy Cade, his brothers and employees were generous and kind to under-privileged kids who had experienced very little human kindness in their short lives.

This would have been a 5 star novel if main characters Cade and Rhetta had more consistently mature personalities. They were wonderful competent when dealing with the kids but silly in their attitudes toward romance and careers. While most of the book was enjoyable - loved all the animals - I really wanted to bang Cade and Rhetta's heads together and tell them to grow the hell up.

Unfortunately the narrator made the adult characters sound too young; her voice, while pleasant, would be better suited for books about children or teens.
