Ex-champion bull rider-turned-cutting-horse cowboy Joe Daniels isn't quite sure how he ended up sleeping in a horse trough wearing nothing but his Stetson and cowboy boots. But now he's wide-awake, and a citified woman is glaring down at him. His goal? Get rid of her ASAP. The obstacle? Fighting the attraction he feels toward the blond-haired filly with the big, vulnerable eyes.

When out-of-work wedding planner Mariah Callahan learns that her estranged father has left her a rundown ranch in Jubilee, she has no choice but to accept it. Her goal? Redeem her career by planning local weddings. The obstacle? One emotionally wounded, hard-living cowboy who stirs her guilt, her heartstrings, and her long-burned cowgirl roots . . .

    " This was some good fluff. Sex scenes were awful and it lacked something but I enjoyed the story. It wasn't the greatest but it was an easy read and I finished it in no time. The characters are both wounded souls and they spend more time arguing than in love but you know they are perfect for eachother so you're not worried about it. Enjoyable if you just need a break from any stress, even book related. "

    " This first book of author Lori Wilde's new JUBILEE, TEXAS series is passionate, witty and emotion-packed. When Mariah arrives at the ranch her estranged father left her in his will, she finds a naked cowboy wearing only a Stetson, sitting in a goldplated trough. He doesn't remember how he got there, but he is determined not to follow up on the instant attraction between him and Mariah. He lost his wife two years ago and just lost his best friend Dutch, Mariah's father. He could not bear to lose anyone else that he cares about. All that Mariah wants is to be herself, have her own wedding planner business and find love. She cannot help her attraction to Joe. But men have always let her down. Is there a chance that she can find the forever after type of love with Joe? Definitely a delightful story, which will have you laughing at times and close to tears at others. Not to be missed! "

    " Cute, quick read, some flaws, but a great hero and humorous moments mostly made up for them. I'll read the next in the series, Wilde writes solid romances. "

    " Cute story! City girl goes back to her roots after her father passes away. Meets a damaged cowboy, sparks fly. It was fun watching them find their way to each other. It was fun watching our heroine realizing that she isn't such a city slicker herself. "
