Cowboy Come Home by Carly Bloom

Welcome to Big Verde, Texas, where a love-'em-and-leave-'em cowboy faces his greatest challenge yet—the woman he left behind. Perfect for fans of New York Times bestselling authors Lori Wilde and Carolyn Brown.

Some cowboys aren't cut out to be Prince Charming—and Claire Kowalski knows that better than anyone. She gave her heart to Ford Jarvis two years ago, yet that didn't keep him from disappearing into the sunset. Now that he's back in Big Verde, Texas, she's determined not to make the same mistake twice. But the ruggedly sexy cowboy still knows how to push all her buttons, and avoiding him is nearly impossible when she needs his help.

Ford didn't plan on returning home—ever—but when he hears that the Kowalski ranch is in trouble, he hightails it back to town. He's not eager to be reminded of the life he can never have, but his time in Big Verde is only temporary. He'll stay long enough to get the ranch up and running, then hit the road again. But when Ford finds out the new foreman he's training is Claire, still as stubborn and beautiful as ever, this cowboy is going to have to decide what matters most—repeating the mistakes of the past or fighting for a future with the only woman he's ever loved.

Includes Rocky Mountain Cowboy, a novella by Sara Richardson.

M/F Romance, Second-Chance Romance

Claire loves living in her town. She knows everyone and everyone knows her family. She has great friends and knows that if she ever needed anything, she could call any of them to help her out. While she grew up on a cattle ranch, she has to admit that she doesn't know much about the business side of things.

Ford knows that coming back to Rancho Canada Verde isn't a good idea, but he can't seem to stay away. He knows that he hurt Claire the last time he was around and that he shouldn't go anywhere near her. But now that he's here, he can't seem to think of anything else.

Claire and Ford have to figure out whether or not they can be civil, because Claire has a lot of responsibility on her shoulders. When she finds out some troubling news about her ranch, she knows that she'll need Ford's help to figure it out. While they figure out their issues, their old feelings resurface. But with their past, Claire isn't sure what to do and Ford believes he'll never settle down.

The big question is whether or not Ford can overcome his fear and if Claire can truly trust her feelings. For the most part, I found that their romance was somewhat stilted. It was a lot of old feelings, without new insight. Also, I think this book could have been shorter. There was a lot going on, and while I enjoyed the story, it felt a little drawn out for me.

Carly Bloom began her writing career as a family humor columnist and blogger, a pursuit she abandoned when her children grew old enough to literally die from embarrassment. To save their delicate lives, Carly turned to penning steamy, contemporary romance. The kind with bare chests on the covers.

Carly and her husband raise their mortified brood of offspring on a cattle ranch in South Texas. Also? Carly is vegan. The cows love her.
