Publisher's Summary

The first book in the Cowboy Fairytales series.

A princess on the run finds sanctuary where she least expects it....

After nearly dying in an assassination attempt, Princess Alessandra of Glorvaird escapes to a place no one would ever think to look for her: small town Oklahoma and a ranch staffed by a herd of wooly, uncouth cowboys. One cowboy in particular gets under her skin, until she sees his softer side. She knows this interlude can't last forever, but that doesn't stop her from wishing it might.

Former Navy SEAL Gideon Hale might've rescued the princess from freezing to death, but the soldier doesn't trust easily - or at all - especially when his gut tells him Alessandra is keeping secrets. But as Alessandra begins to fit into his life, he discovers another side to the princess - one that he can't help but like.

When Alessandra's enemies close in, Gideon must fight to save the woman who has become so much more than a princess.

Once Upon a Cowboy is a contemporary western retelling of the Snow White fairytale and is the first book in the Cowboy Fairytales series.

Unique Story About a Princess & a Cowboy!

This was a very unique story about a princess on the run for her life and a cowboy! It was different then anything I have read/listened so far. The story was short but very sweet. I would not have thought that a cowboy and a princess would have worked as well as It did.

The narration was well done and brought the story to life.

The characters were well developed for such a short story. It is a great start to a very unique series. The blend of rough and rugged cowboys with sophisticated wealthy princesses is unexpected but delightful. I'm looking forward to the next book in this sweet fairytales series.

Sweet clean read

A very enjoyable story, but yes the inevitable but, there were to many unanswered questions. Yes it is a series so you expect a few. But there's more than a few.
The narrator has a nice soothing voice.
I was voluntarily provided this review copy audio book at my request at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator. This did not impact my review in any way.

Fun Clean Listen

I was given a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review. I enjoyed the book because it was interesting and engrossing. I was rooting for the heroine and her flight from danger. I will definitely listen to more books from the author. I also liked the narrator.

Adorable modern spin on the classic fairy tale, S

What made the experience of listening to Once Upon a Cowboy the most enjoyable?

This is my first book to read by Author Lacy Williams. I really enjoyed the story, I am more of a mystery reader but the added mystery of who is trying to assassinate Alessandra satisfied this element for me. The characters are well developed, story is well paced, Williams does a great job of not dragging out the suspense of the budding relationship too long. The story does end leaving us wanting more, Williams continues the storyline of the assassination attempt in the next book but the main storyline for this book I feel is wrapped up nicely.

I listened to the audio version of this book, Narrator Lara Asmundson does a wonderful job bringing the story to life. She has a lovely voice that just draws you into the story.

I would recommend this book, it’s a quick read, no bad language, sex, or graphic violence. The “cliffhanger” at the end definitely leaves me wanting more. I look forward to reading more of this series.

Cowboy wins my heart

This is my first audio/book by this author. I really enjoyed this story as well as the narration. This isn't my typical type of story I gravitate towards. But this Cowboy has won my heart.

Sweet Read

This is not your usual royal romance story. She is an independent down to earth woman who happens to be a royal. He is an ex military guy who's instincts are to protect. Sparks fly between these two as he tries to protect her from a killer.
