Title: All Cowboy & Heart
Author: Rhonda Lee Carver
Genre: Contemporary Western Romance
A tattooed cowboy. An age gap. A secret baby. And one night with a stranger will lead to unexpected dreams. She’s about to trade in the title “Cougar” for “Lioness”. Dustina “Dusty” Cavanaugh has been around rough and tough cowboys all her life. She has two unwavering rules. One, don’t mix business with pleasure. Two, never, EVER, believe anything that a cowboy says right after an eight second ride. Then she blows it over a charming, handsome cowboy. He gives her a night to remember…and a positive pregnancy test. Wales couldn’t get the sexy brunette off his mind. She’d embedded herself in his veins and her memory kept popping up—in more ways than one. When she shows up in Dove Grey to do a story on his brother, Cade Dawson, Wales is torn between his feelings for Dusty and keeping his head, and heart, on track. A cowboy is supposed to be tough, but she tests his durability. Can he convince her that the age difference isn’t a big deal? Then she drops the “P” bomb. Surprises unravel--some good and some devastating. Will their growing love detonate or will an unforeseen presence bring them together to live happily ever after?
Dusty has two rules when it comes to men but when Wales sweeps her off her feet and she gets pregnant, can she trust him to not betray her, like so many men before? Dusty knows what it’s like around the rodeo and hard-as-nails cowboys. She has two strict rules: never mix business with pleasure and never believe anything a cowboy says after an exhilarating ride at the rodeo. She’s never broken her rules, that is until ruggedly handsome Wales dances his way into her heart. They share a passion-filled night and Dusty thought that would be the end of their affair. But now she sits pregnant. Will she tell Wales? How will he react? Choices will be made and promises broken. Can Dusty and Wales finally admit they love one another and their little one on the way or will Dusty run away before Wales can hurt her again?
All Cowboy & Heart is a multi-faceted western romance I heartily enjoyed. It encompasses quite a few tropes including age-gap romance, cougar romance, one-night stand romance, secret baby romance, surprise pregnancy romance, edgy western romance, and more. From start to finish, Rhonda Lee Carver weaves a contemporary western romance with plenty of emotion. Love, just like with life, gets messy and things happen. Someone unexpected walks into your life and you’re unprepared for the fallout. The emotional narration in All Cowboy & Heart makes this a relatable read and you won’t be able to put it down. Both Dusty and Wales have issues to work through, mainly trust, but they’re realistic in how they handle things. Fans of realistic western romance will love All Cowboy & Heart. If you’re looking for an age-gap/cougar one-night-stand-turned-pregnant western romance, you’ll want to read All Cowboy & Heart. Rhonda Lee Carver is one of my favorite western romance authors and I recommend any of her books. Highly recommend!

Rhonda Lee Carver is a bestselling author of contemporary western and romantic suspense, but she loves to write other genres too. She’s known for writing stories that keep readers laughing, crying, gripping the edge of their seats, and screaming all in one book...like riding a virtual roller coaster. Whether she's creating sexy cowboys or tough guys, or sassy, independent heroines, readers are sure to find strong, powerful, memorable characters that are relatable.
By day, she taps into her creative, fictional world but at some point she transitions back into reality where she's a volleyball-stands cheerleader, homework virtuoso (at least she thinks so), amateur nurse to skinned knees, mediocre chef with some awesome microwave skills, pet-guru (all the strays show up at her house), and a Jackie of all trades for her kids who are the loves of her life. Yoga and chocolate keep her sane. Hallmark movies require cuddling up with tissues because she can be emotional. She adds a sprinkle of her own real-life adventures in each story she spins because a little truth never hurt anyone. She wouldn’t give up one thing in her crazy, chaotic, ever-amusing life, except, she might do magic tricks for the bungalow on the beach she's had her eye on (GOALS).
Writing for Rhonda is like falling in love and finding a new best friend over and over again. Her characters will find a place inside your heart too.
