Title: Cupid Comes to the Lonesome Buzzard Ranch
Author: Hebby Roman
Genre: Western Romance, Contemporary Romance, Seasoned Romance
Les Springer, a widowed rancher, hasn’t stopped grieving for his wife. When three of his friends cook up a Valentine’s Day weekend at his B&B, chaos ensues. The three cowboys go to an online dating site to find matches. The only problem is, no one ends up with who they pick… almost.
Jackson Coleridge, Les’ best buddy, kisses the wrong woman at the wrong time… in front of the wrong woman.
Jiggs Davis, Les’ ranch foreman, gets drafted at the last minute to squire one of the matched ladies… but she’s no lady.
Jayce Fulton, Les’ rodeo champion friend, tries to corral the lady no one wants… until she turns on him.
Harper Lewis, a social media guru, is divorced and thinks she’s looking for a husband… until she realizes she wants more. Can the cowboy she’s chosen meet her expectations?
Lillian Mayfield, a widowed accountant turned florist, comes across as stiff and formal and still… grieving. Is she ready to open her heart and discover a new love?
Cheyenne MacPherson, part Navajo and a sculptor, is dedicated to her work and feels the weekend is… one big mistake. Can a handsome cowboy change her mind?
Eva González, Les’ widowed cook and housekeeper, misses her children and longs for a sense of… family. Is she ready to start a new family with the man she loves?
Four lonesome cowboys try out a dating site and invite the ladies to a Valentine’s Day weekend. What’s the worst that can happen? Plenty! Les, Jackson, Jiggs and Jayce welcome the ladies, each with an eye on the lady they chose. But Cupid plays by a set of different rules and these cowboys are in for a few surprises. Can hearts be opened to the idea of love or is this just another online dating nightmare?
I wasn’t sure what was in store from me when I started reading Cupid Comes to the Lonesome Buzzard Ranch. The title is a mouthful but I fell in love with the cover so I gave it a shot. I’m so glad I did. A hysterical western romance with heroes who are set in their ways and heroines who have a mind of their own. But it’s Valentine’s Day weekend and no one wants to be alone on Valentine’s Day, right?
Each character brings something special to this story. The more I read, the more I loved this group of people. The humorous dialogue kept me laughing at the shenanigans. I have my favorites and they came to life through descriptive narration peppered with witty POV. The ending melted my heart. The only thing I didn't care for was it was a tad slow in parts.
I love seasoned romance and this one is a gem. If you’re looking for a good romantic comedy set in a small western town, pick this up today! I’m hoping for a sequel.
Favorite Character/Quote: “I think you’ve lost your ever-loving mind,” Les interrupted. “If you’re thinking about using my B&B for some ‘love-in’ weekend with a bunch of strange women, you’d better think again.”
My Rating: 4.5 stars
