Wild Wyoming Hearts Series, Book 3

I picked up this book because it was the Overdrive “Big Read” book choice through my library. If you are not familiar, here is a bit of information about it:

Global eBook Club

Big Library Read (BLR), facilitated by OverDrive, is a reading program through your library that connects readers around the world with the same eBook at the same time without any wait lists or holds.

Easy to Join

It’s a worldwide digital version of a local book club, the program is free through your local library or school library and all you need to get started reading is a library card or student ID.

I’m not sure how these books are selected but this one is self published. Looking at some of the previous selections, this seems to be an outlier. A few previous titles were Art of the Pie by Kate McDermott, a cookbook; American Sniper by Chris Kyle; Eyes on You by Kate White – traditionally published books, some by bestselling authors.

From Amazon:

“Everyone knows a rancher in possession of a large spread needs a wife.”

First impressions count. Liza Bennett has two missions in life: keep the family’s shop afloat, and ensure her shy sister finds love. Sparks fly when she meets rancher Rob Darcy at a town dance, but when she overhears him insult her, she vows to put the man out of her mind. Rob Darcy is instantly attracted to the vivacious Liza but a lack of social graces and the promise he’s keeping ruin his chances of winning her.

Once jilted, Janie Bennett is appropriately gun-shy of falling in love again. But she doesn’t seem to be able to help herself when she meets charming Nathan Bingley. Bingley desperately wants a wife and family of his own. Can he trust that Janie returns his feelings? When Janie is injured in a spring storm, she and Liza are sequestered on Nathan’s ranch. Hearts and emotions get tangled, but will first impressions prove true, or false?

Cowboy Pride is a Wild West version of Pride and Prejudice with dual love stories. Lacy Williams is a USA Today bestselling author of the acclaimed Wyoming Legacy and Cowboy Fairytales series.

This was a cute book. It was very light, almost too light as the characters really could have used more development. That said, if you like Western romances and/or are obsessed with Pride & Prejudice and all its incantations, you may enjoy this book. I did.

  1. I just downloaded this one on Overdrive through the Big Read the other day. After reading your review and remarks about the book, I think it will be just the thing for summertime reading. Light and frothy just like Regency gowns. ~nan
