Kissed by a Cowboy (A Four of Hearts Ranch Romance #3) by Debra Clopton *book review*


Kissed by a Cowboy (A Four of Hearts Ranch Romance #3) by Debra Clopton

“Kissed by a Cowboy” is book 3 of the “Four of Hearts Ranch Romance” series. I have read all three books from this series and absolutely love them! This is a series that I tell my mom and friends about and keep these books on my bookshelf to read numerous times!

This clean series is filled with laughter, tears, romance, and life lessons. I love that this series takes place in the same town and focuses on family members from the Monahan Family, who own the Four of Hearts Ranch. Although it would be best to read these books in order so the character development makes sense, you can definitely read them as stand alone books.

After Aunt Roxie passes away, she leaves her farm to Cassidy. Recently divorced, Cassidy returns to Wishing Springs Texas where she is welcomed with open arms by all the towns people who love her. Cassidy decides she wants to turn the farm into an organic strawberry & peach farm and a bed and breakfast. She works hard to make this happen, but is reluctant to let anyone, including her handsome neighbor Jarrod help her in any way.

Cassidy has alot of personal healing that she needs to do after her messy divorce before she can begin to love again and trust other men into her life. Jarrod has known her for a very long time and hopes that Cassidy can see how much he cares for her and that she should give him a chance.

I highly recommend this series! Who wouldn’t like a cowboy romance with lots of family and close knit neighbors?! I truly can’t say enough good things and hope Debra Clopton continues to write more for this series!

I received a complimentary copy of this book from LitFuse Publicity in exchange for an honest review on my blog and social media-all opinions are my own.

You can read my reviews of book 1 and book 2 here from my blog:

Cassidy was looking for a home and a place to belong . . . not for a cowboy to steal her heart.
Having lived through her parents’ endless string of “matrimonial bliss gone wrong,” Cassidy Starr knows when the odds are not in her favor. Divorced and humiliated, her faith on rocky ground, Cassidy is through with love. She’s been bucked o_ that horse far too many times. Instead, she returns to Wishing Springs, Texas, and the rundown farm she’s inherited from her great aunt Roxie. She’ll reopen the strawberry farm and a bed & breakfast and follow in her aunt’s footsteps, remaining forever-independent, happy . . . and single.
Rancher Jarrod Monahan’s hands are full running the ranch, looking after his ailing grandfather, and chasing down a group of rustlers on the loose. He’s pushed his longing for a family to the bottom of his list of priorities. Besides, he was in love once but ran scared and lost his shot at happiness. But suddenly, the biggest regret of his life has moved in next door with a wounded heart, determined to become a spinster . . . and that’s a challenge that Jarrod can’t pass up.
Jarrod sets his mind to breaking down the walls around Cassidy’s stubborn heart. How can he show her that a cowboy’s kiss lasts forever? For the good folks of Wishing Springs, falling in love has never been so much fun to witness.
