She’s got a knack…

For roping in hearts

For rancher Will Sullivan, nothing is more beautiful than a Colorado sunrise…until Kelsea Carruthers shows up at his ranch, wanting to lease his land. But Will has plans for his struggling ranch that don’t include the gorgeous, quirky Southern belle. Now Kelsea is quickly learning how to be a true cowgirl—even as she steals everyone’s hearts. And this gruff, set-in-his-ways cowboy might just be falling the hardest…

From Harlequin Heartwarming: Wholesome stories of love, compassion and belonging.

My Review

CAUGHT BY THE COWGIRL is a story about a woman trying to prove her worth and place, and a cowboy who is trying to keep his family's ranch and find contentment. It's a sweet story with some lovable animals, likable characters, and light romance. Fans of the Heartwarming line and light, quick romances will enjoy this one.

I've read some of this author's previous books and enjoyed them. This story is on the lighter side, which is what you'd expect from this line of books. I liked all the characters and thought the scenes with the animals added some fun moments as well as a bit of heart. I liked that Will is a bit rough around the edges and still trying to figure life out after his parents died and retiring from the rodeo circuit. It made him vulnerable and relatable. Kelsea is a slightly out of control ball of sunshine. She dives right into things. They're somewhat opposites, which makes for a fun romance. 

There were some things that were unrealistic and some dialogue that felt stilted. It's also a very quick romance, although not quite insta-love. I would have liked a bit more depth and development. I also would have liked smoother dialogue so that the chemistry felt more palpable. 

In the end, was it what I wished for? An overall light and fun read with enjoyable characters and a sweet romance.
