Title: The Courage of a Cowboy
Series: Elk Heights Ranch #2
Author: Kristin Vayden
Publishers: Kensington Press/Penguin/
Random House Publishers
Genre: Western Romance
Release Date: April 17, 2018


Nothing like a wedding to get a girl dreaming of happily-ever-after . . .

Kessed Ling’s best friend’s big day is finally here. It’s especially exciting because it’s Kessed’s chance to show her childhood crush she’s not just a young bridesmaid, she’s a full-grown woman—with red hot desires. But when her long-awaited prey barely blinks an eye at her, Kessed retreats right back into her deeply guarded heart. Doesn’t matter that chivalrous Jasper Matthews steps in and offers a shoulder to lean on. Kessed is no longer in the market for a man, despite how unsettled the strong, silent groomsman makes her feel . . .

As a veterinarian, Jasper better understands a skittish filly than he does willful Kessed Ling. But when fate finds him playing ranch hand alongside the raven-haired beauty, Jasper realizes she’s a woman running scared—and he’s just the man to tame her. So with soothing words and bold kisses, Jasper sets out to show Kessed how good it can be between a man and a woman.  Especially when the man is falling hard and fast in love . . .
“Obsessed. That’s how I felt while reading this book, like every page was better than the previous. Just try to put this down, I dare you.”

Review by Kathy

Sometimes you start a series and can't wait for the next book to come out. Well I was giddy with excitement when this book landed on my kindle. I was so looking forward to the wedding of Cyler and Laken, who we met and followed in the first book. We also get another glimpse at Laken's brother Sterling who is in from his tour to give the bride away and we see Kessed, Laken's best friend who has had a thing for Sterling for years, he just doesn't reciprocate the feelings. Serving as best man for Cyler is his best bud, Jasper. When Jasper sees Kessed, he is instantly attracted to her, but does notice that she has eyes for the man who doesn't seem to notice her. So when Cyler asks him to go to the ranch to help get things ready for some steers which will be delivered earlier than expected, Jasper accepts, knowing that Kessed will be house-sitting for them while they are on their honeymoon. And that's when things get fun. The banter is great, the angst is palpable and these two interact and get the job done fixing the things at the ranch. But something else begins to happen. Kessed begins to see what a great guy Jasper is and makes the first move on him. 

These two are so made for each other that you can't help but want to help give them a little added push. But when something unexpected happens, throwing Kessed back in touch with Sterling, will Jasper be left with the broken heart, or will he win the light of his life? 

This is a great book and a wonderful series. I highly recommend it.

Kristin's inspiration for the romance she writes comes from her tall, dark and handsome husband with killer blue eyes. With five children to chase, she is never at a loss for someone to kiss, something to cook or some mess to clean but she loves every moment of it! Life is full—of blessings and adventure! Needless to say she’s a big fan of coffee and wine…and living in Washington she’s within walking distance of both!
