Book Review: Hired by the Cowboy

Hired by the Cowboy by Donna Alward Harlequin Romance 3954 - May 07

This is the first book I've read from this author and it certainly won't be my last. Her characters could be my neighbors - real down-to-earth people who care for others as well as the land. People who try to live the life they're dealt while holding onto their dignity and self-respect. People who don't flash their money in your face just because they have it and you don't.

She uses Alberta, land of cowboys, mountains and wealth to weave a marriage of convenience story that starts with despair and ends in rapture. Ride along with me while I give the low-down on this poignant story:

Alexis Grayson is pregnant and alone. She's strong and penniless. She's a victim of circumstance, yet a survivor. She knows what she wants but isn't sure how to get it...
Until Connor Madsen walks into her life and asks her to share his.

Connor needs a temporary wife. Alexis needs a temporary home.

All they have to do is accept that true happiness comes when you give your heart into someone else's safekeeping. Strong is good. Together is better.

But, they'll have to dig deep and find the courage to take the chance.

This stand-alone book has characters from the Windover Ranch. Other Donna Alward books with related characters are:
- Marriage at Circle M - HR 3978 Sep 07
- Falling For Mr. Dark & Dangerous - HR 4044 Aug 08

Heat level: Romantic

My Rating: Great! - 4 ½ stars (a keeper)
