Publisher's Summary

Two ranching families, the Blackthornes and the Creeds, are locked in a bitter century-old feud. In The Cowboy, Johnston brings to life a breathtaking love story between the Blackthornes' oldest son and the Creeds' beautiful daughter - a magnificent novel of passion, vengeance, and star-crossed love. Trace Blackthorne was taught from the cradle to take what he wanted, and he wanted Callie Creed. Trace has come home after 11 years as a ruthless hard-eyed stranger, making Callie an offer she can't refuse: marry him and save her struggling family from financial ruin. But the secrets of the past return to haunt them. And Callie is once again compelled to make an impossible choice - between the family who desperately needs her and the only man she has ever loved.

Loved the book. But Audible version...

She does a horrible job narrating this book. But the story is good. I'm hooked on them but won't be purchasing anymore audible versions.

mixed feelings

the story is one of my favorites and the reason why I feel in love with Joan Johnston's work. the quality on the other hand was a disaster. it was like it was never edited. you can hear the director in the background counting down and the mistakes in the readings. I love how the author does her own reading. it means a lot to the fans.

Bad narration

You can hear editing and miscues. I wasted a credit on a book that’s unprofessionally presented😡
