You know that somewhat famous movie line -- "you had me at
hello?" In CLAIM ME, COWBOY, I was hooked as Danielle thought
to herself -- "what kind of idiot puts an ad in a paper
looking for a temporary wife." Joshua was advertising for
someone unsuitable -- and as Danielle so deftly puts it -- "I
would say that I'm pretty unsuitable." Just one of the many
magical moments in CLAIM ME, COWBOY. Too many to mention.
Copper Ridge has been a delightful series. Each story so
unique and totally engaging. Maisey Yates really showcases
her talent for character development in this series. Be
prepared to fall in love with Danielle Kelly, totally rough
around the edges and yet surprisingly grounded. Life hasn't
been kind. No one has ever taken care of Danielle and she
has managed pretty darn well on her own, but now she needs
Hardest thing ever is to acknowledge that you need help.
Made even more difficult in the reality that there is no
one to turn to. But then fate perhaps steps in and gives
Danielle an opportunity she can't turn down. From its
inception the plan had some major flaws, but Danielle was
determined to see it through. She was looking at the pot
of gold at the end of the rainbow.
Joshua was at a strange point in his life. He didn't want to
face down his past and couldn't, or wouldn't, shape a
future. But even so, he was just not willing to have any
input from his family. Joshua and his father had
conflicting ideas about how his personal life was progressing
and so each put out a personal ad looking for a wife. His
father made it look too good to be true. Joshua made it a
competition. And you guessed it, Danielle is the one that
answered one of their ads.
As it turns out, Joshua gets much more than he bargained for
in his tongue and cheek ad, but life was definitely going
to get more complicated and wonderful. Joshua just has to
open his eyes and heart and see the possibilities that were
right before him. Joshua is a smart man -- let's just hope
he is smart enough to know a good thing when he sees it.
If you read Maisey Yates bio you will see what I did --
Maisey Yates is just the kind of person I would choose as a
friend and that's how her books make me feel. CLAIM ME,
COWBOY is, once again, a feel good, humorous, heartwarming
story that keeps you smiling throughout. Maisey Yates likes
to put her characters in awkward, but funny, positions and
CLAIM ME, COWBOY is no exception.
The woman on his doorstep is brash, independent, and holding
a baby! His father won’t approve, which makes her perfect
for Joshua Grayson’s scheme. He’ll pretend he’s marrying
unsuitable Danielle Kelly to keep his father from meddling.
He won’t be tempted to touch her, to claim her…or to fall in
