Brady Talmadge was a cowboy with five unbreakable rules:

  1. Never pick up a pretty hitchhiker.
  2. Avoid damsels in distress.
  3. Never order chili at a truck stop.
  4. Always trust your gut.
  5. Never tell a lie.

This is what happened when he broke all his rules—and got into a whole lot of trouble.

On the run from an arranged marriage, Princess Annabella of Monesta dons the guise of a hitchhiking cowgirl. But when she finds herself drenched, alone, and hungry, she has no choice but to trust the tall Texas horse whisperer who offers her a ride. He’s like no one she’s ever known—a strong, sexy man who says just what he thinks. And when one wild kiss leaves her breathless, she quickly realizes she’ll give up everything to spend a lifetime of night times in his arms. But how can there be happily-ever-after with palace guards hot on her trail?

Quotes & Awards

  • “Once again Wilde creates a delightful romance, this time with a cowboy hero and a princess heroine. Add in a zany cast of dogs, horses, friends, and kids, as well as a mild mystery, and you have a story that is a joy to read.”

    " I enjoyed the story as a fairy tale that it was. Roaming horse whisperer meets and falls in love with Princess running away from her life of responsibilty. It was contrived, sweet, the characters likeable but just not a knock your socks off kind of book. "

    " Most romance novels cannot be accused of excessive realism, and Lori Wilde's The Cowboy and the Princess is no exception; as a matter of fact is is more unrealistic than most. He is a loner, but a man with lots of friends who love him. He doesn't want to settle down and doesn't think he is worthy of being loved. However, he has a way with horses. She's a princess from some small European country. She is supposed to marry the prince of another small European country in six weeks. It is a political match, not a love one, and she wants just one chance to be "normal" before her wedding. Her chance comes when the daughter of the ex-President of the US gets married. She goes to the compound to attend the wedding, and, with the help of the President's daughter, slips away from her bodyguards. She is on the highway hitchhiking when he picks her up. He takes her to a small town in Texas and she settles in for six weeks, taking a job in the store of a friend of his--oh, and he and she decide to have a fling. Each tells the other that s/he doesn't want anything more than a short fling, but along the way.... In the end they get their happily ever after but the ending is even more far-fetched than the beginning. Despite the far-fetched beginning and ending the middle is a really good story with strong characters. Anne has spent her whole life wanting to do what other kids do--get dirty, go to carnivals, eat concession stand food, but she was a princess and had to act like one, all the time. It must have been fun for Brady to see the wonder in her eyes as she experience all these new things in Texas. He was obviously curious about where she came from but he gave her the space she needed. It takes them a while, but eventually they are intimate before marriage, and while this is not the most explicit book I've ever read, I'd by no means put it in the "clean" romance category. I'd like to thank the publisher for making a review copy available via Edelweiss. I was not obligated to write a positive review. Grade: B "

    " I loved this one up to the very end, but there was just something about the ending that left me feeling let down. Brady and Annie were just delightful and I was charmed by their romance. The "princess from a fictional country with an arranged marriage" bit was quite a stretch but I was ok with that. I'm not sure what it was about the ending that was a disappointment, but it might be that it just had too much activity/information crammed into it "
