Publisher's Summary

A ranch owner in Texas Hill Country, a horse trainer, and a romance for the ages... 

Dwayne Carver is set to inherit his family's ranch in the heart of Texas Hill Country, which would be great if his first love wasn't raising and training horses. In order to keep up with his ranch duties and fulfill his dreams of owning a horse farm, he hires top trainer Felicity Lightburne.  

Felicity, wracked with grief over the death of her father, can't stand to stay on her family farm anymore, so she takes the job at Grape Seed Ranch sight unseen. She shows up in her red mustang only to be confronted by three wild bulls who've broken free.  

When Dwayne intervenes, she's smitten. It doesn't matter that he's her boss, or that she dunked him in the small-town Texas festival the day before, or that he has tremors in his right arm from a military injury. They get along great, and she can envision herself on this new farm - at least until her mother falls ill and she has to return to help her.  

Then she realizes that the ranch wife life isn't one she particularly wants. And it's all Dwayne has to offer her. Can Dwayne and Felicity work through their differences to find their happily-ever-after?

Sweet story

Once again, Liz Isaacson delivers a fantastic story. Caroline McLaughlin does a fantastic job narrating. I loved this sweet, clean, christian romance. It was fast paced with a few obstacles thrown in. Definitely recommend this book.

Cowboy and Cowgirl Fall in Love

I enjoyed listening to this story. Although, at times it felt like their love story wasn't really developed. It seemed that they feel in love immediately, so the story didn't have as much depth as I would have liked.

The Narration Was Not For Me

A sweet romance where the couple have a relationship that does not involve any bedroom activity. They share their experiences, thoughts, and feelings while getting to know one another.

The book is not about a completely smooth sailing relationship. I liked that Dwayne and Felicity each had their own doubts, fears, and insecurities and turned to their faith for guidance.

Although it bothered me a bit when Felicity completely shut Dwayne out, I was glad when she went to him to talk and didn't continue to wait on his call. He had proven to her what he thought and felt.

I liked the sense of family, and would have enjoyed more interaction between Felicity and her mother since that was a topic of conversation.

I listened to the audio version of this book. The narration was not terrible, but I didn't care for it. I thought it was very bland. The narrator reading the part of Dwayne and the other men did not come close to making me think of cowboys, men, or anything associated with the male species. She did a great job with the female characters. I just could not get into her renditions of the males in the book. I would prefer to read the book. I would still recommend you try the audio version of you like audio books. This was still a good book.

I voluntarily listened and reviewed the audio book received from the author.

(4 stars) - Mutual healing thru love

Dwayne and Felicity are both emotionally damaged & are drawn together providentially to find healing. Stories of two hurting souls who help each other and find romance in the process are one of my favorite tropes & this one was quite good!

*Clean romance level: sweet kisses, nothing graphic


[The narrator's voice is pleasant, and she reads naturally, with distinctive character voices]

a wonderful love story

An interesting good clean romance. This engaging storyline included angst, lack of communication, grief, love, and some bumps along a sweet journey to a HEA. The characters are realistic, both their issues to work thru but find love thru patience and Lord's way. I enjoyed seeing other characters and more of their stories.

Craving the Cowboy

Loved the story on this. How their lives and hurts brought them together, then having to deal with family. Liz Issacson is one of my favorite authors, and she didn't disappoint on this one. The narration was not as good as some I have listened to, but it was ok.

Clean cowboy romance

A very enjoyable clean, cowboy romance.

These 2 had the usual hurdles all couples have, not only just getting over the past but learning to trust the future. It was nice to see it wasn’t all smooth sailing, cause hey let’s face it, life has its ups and downs. And how we face these shows the kinds of person we are. The same could be said for these two.

The narrator did a great job of bringing this story to life.

Enjoy.

I received this as a complimentary copy and I am giving my honest review voluntarily
