Annie Ross has been on the run for two years from the
abusive man whom she was once engaged to. A nurse, she had obtained employment
as a librarian in another small town to keep him from finding her. But when she
caught a glimpse of him at the fundraiser where she was modeling wedding
dresses, she knew it was time to run once more. Exhausted, she ended up
sleeping on the porch of a ranch house. The next morning, Mason’s two
daughters, Lily and Gabriella, saw her on the porch in her dirty, tattered
wedding dress and were certain that she was their new mama, a gift from their
father for their birthday. Although they were quite put out at not being
allowed to attend the wedding, they planned to do everything they could to get
her to stay, even behave.
Not knowing how to explain her story, Annie claims
amnesia, and when Mason offers her a job as nanny, she cannot refuse. As the
girls try to help her regain her memory, so she will remember marrying their
daddy, they decide to call her mama-nanny. Annie falls in love with the girls
and her attraction to their daddy is undeniable. As the attraction grows
between Annie and Mason, she wants nothing more than to stay and become a real
part of this family, but does she dare risk putting them in danger in case her
nightmarish past catches up with her?
An absolute delight, HOW TO MARRY A COWBOY, the fourth
book in New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Carolyn Brown’s COWBOYS
AND BRIDES series, brings the series to a close. It is an extremely witty, sexy
contemporary romance that will keep readers enthralled. I absolutely loved this
book and the twins and their antics were a hoot. Their unimaginable antics will soon have you
laughing out loud and the girls are a joy. I really hated for this story to
end. Annie Rose’s fear of her ex-fiancé and Mason’s struggle to let go of his
deceased wife and the past make any type of romance hard at the beginning, but
neither expects the sparks that fly between them whenever they are together.
Brimming with heart, humor, heat and loads of love,
this is a story you do not want to miss! Whenever I see the name Carolyn Brown
on a book, I know I am guaranteed an excellent read and this book is no
exception. This book brings to a close the COWBOYS AND BRIDES series, to my
chagrin. However, I am looking forward to her new THE BURNT BOOTS series,
starting in October with COWBOY BOOTS FOR CHRISTMAS (COWBOY NOT INCLUDED). In
addition, she has a book from her new THE PALO DURO CANYON series coming out in
late August entitled LONG, HOT TEXAS SUMMER. If you have never tried any of Ms.
Brown’s books, be sure to treat yourself to a copy of HOW TO MARRY A COWBOY. I
am sure you will love it as much as I did. A Recommended Read!
