Publisher's Summary

He's a cowboy looking for love. She's a makeup artist trying to reinvent herself. When they meet on a reality dating show, will sparks fly? Or will the rules keep them apart?

Cowboy Tyler Hall never thought he would be a contestant on a reality dating TV show, but after his latest breakup, his best friend's wife talks him into auditioning. When he gets word that he's been chosen, he can't believe it - but as his last few relationships have ended poorly, he decides to try something different and take a chance. However, he gets more than he bargained for when he falls for a woman who is not a contestant.

Laney Swann has been running from her high school insecurities for years, but when she loses her job, she ends up having to return home and reunites with an old friend who convinces her to do the makeup for a reality TV show. Laney expected it to be just a job until she met the bachelor. Now she has to control her feelings while watching him date other women.

Will she ever get the courage to tell him how she feels? And if she does, will he prove different from the other men in her past?

This is the first book in the multi-author Blushing Bride series. Each book will be standalone, but have the common thread of brides and weddings running through them.

Fun quick listen

The Cowboy's Reality Bride
: Lorana Hoopes

This is a sweet, clean, almost western romance. A reality tv show brings together a cowboy and a group of women wanting to become his bride. Lots of little side trips before an interesting ending.



The narration was well done. The characters were well portrayed. Lorana Hoopes (the author) also narrated this book.

Delightful romance novella

This is a sweet, Christian romance that takes on reality dating shows. The two leads are both Christians who want love and fulfillment, and even though it takes a strange route to get there they find God's path for them.

Many times in novellas, I feel that the pace is too rushed because that's the nature of a novella. With this one, though, the couple felt believable. The chemistry worked, and the characters had interests and friends outside each other.

One of the nice things about this story was that you could tell it was written by a Texan. There were things there that showed appreciation and not arrogant swagger.

The only thing I didn't like with the story is that there were a few cliches that made me groan. It didn't stop me enjoying the story, which is why I can't think to number them here.

Now to the performance itself, Hoopes reads her own story, and she did excellent voice work. It's not often that an author is able to do this. Her characters sounded like characters, and it was a joy to relax and listen.

I recommend this to others who want a clean romance. I'd be willing to listen to more of Hoopes' works.

Christian Romance & Reality TV

Lorana Hoopes is a wonderful author and narrator, she is one of my favorites!
The Cowboy’s Reality Bride is about a dating reality TV show where Tyler, the cowboy, falls quick and hard for Laney, his makeup artist, instead of the 20 contestants that are fighting for him. Laney quickly knows that she that has feelings for Tyler, but she knows that she cannot compete with the contestants, she is there to do his make-up, not date him!
There are a lot of twist and turns, humor and challenges but the best is the power of prayer. Tyler and Laney do not make any decisions without praying about it first. I love this book and highly recommend that you listen to the audiobook!
