Romance Historical

George Pryce is a man who loves his life of leisure, the only true life of a gentleman, as far as he's concerned. But being a gentleman is not a useful enough profession for his demanding father, so George searches for the easiest way to make his own money. After reading about the fortune that could be made effortlessly in breweries, George seeks and finds a small brewery, owned and operated by a widow who can't be bought. George is not accustomed to anyone saying "No" to him, but that's exactly what Olivia is doing.

Lady Olivia Xavier inherited the small brewery upon the death of her husband and has made quite a success of it. But things are getting dangerous, and she's attacked on her way home from work one night. Coming to her rescue, stepping out of the fog as if from the pages of her favorite dime novels, is her cowboy, her knight in shining armor. Olivia can't be dreaming because she's being tightly held against a solid chest and wrapped in strong, but gentle, arms. Even though she can't explain the feeling, Olivia knows this handsome cowboy can be trusted.

Will Coffin has never held a real lady in his arms, especially one with beautiful violet eyes. He's a Colorado cowpuncher in London to find his family and has never felt more out of place in his life. Call it fate for Will and Olivia. They couldn't be more distant socially, financially, geographically or any other way, but their lives intertwine. Will has a strong moral code and is full of integrity. He'll help Olivia save her brewery, just because she asks. Olivia has found the true and honest man of her dreams and will do anything to lasso his heart.

LADY X'S COWBOY is a delightful debut novel for Zoe Archer. The characters brim with humanity, and the story is full of emotions and tender passions that heat up like a branding iron. The combination of pride and passion in a heart-warming and unforgettable story make this a great read not to be missed.

Lady Olivia Xavier: a young British widow who won't live in genteel idleness, she puts her fears of an unknown world aside to forge a life for herself as a brewer and businesswoman. Can she remain quietly unconventional when she crosses paths with a man straight from the Wild West?

Will Coffin: a Colorado cowboy, he's searching for the family he never knew and an end to the restlessness in his heart. Did this free-wheeling cowpoke step out of the pages of Olivia's favorite penny dreadfuls, or is there more to this man than just a Stetson and pair of spurs?
