Lori Wilde's The Princess and the Cowboy

Brady Talmadge was a cowboy with five unbreakable rules:
1) Never pick up a pretty hitchhiker
2) Avoid damsels in distress
3) Never order chili at a truck stop
4) Always trust your gut
5) Never tell a lie . . .

This is what happened when he broke all his rules . . . and got into a whole lot of trouble!

On the run from an arranged marriage, Princess Annabella of Monesta dons the guise of a hitchhiking cowgirl. But when she finds herself drenched, alone, and hungry, she has no choice but to trust the tall Texas horse whisperer who offers her a ride. He's like no one she's ever known—a strong sexy man who says just what he thinks. And when one wild kiss leaves her breathless, she quickly realizes she'll give up everything to spend a lifetime of night times in his arms. But how can there be happily-ever-after with palace guards hot on her trail?

Read Your Writes Review

The Princess and the Cowboy is the second book in the Jubilee, Texas series.  However, it isn't necessary for you to have read the first book.  These two books can stand alone.
Brady Talmadge is a cowboy with a dark past contributing to his five unbreakable rules.  At the age of fifteen, Brady ran away from an abusive home and ended up being taken in by Dutch Callahan of Jubilee, Texas.  Dutch taught Brady how to take care of horses.  Over the course of fourteen years, Brady became so good he became known as "The Horse Whisperer", for his ability to heal and rehabilitate injured horses.

Princess Annabella (Annie) is a twenty four year old princess scheduled to be married off to Prince Theodore of Dubinstein, a man she does not love, but feels it is her royal duty to.  Throughout Annie's entire life, she has lived a very quiet, extremely closed off, sheltered life behind the walls of Farrington Palace.  With her marriage fast approaching, Annie and her friend, Echo, come up with a plan to get Annie her six week adventure of a lifetime, before she settles down.

Every girl dreams of being a princess, when they're young.  This story is what happens when the princess just wants to be an ordinary girl, loved and cared for simply because she is herself and NOT a princess.  What would you do, if you were offered everything you didn't even know you wanted?  Would your life still be a fairy tale come true?  With The Cowboy and the Princess, you will find out.
One of my favorite quotes from the book is, "Everyone is scared. Bravery is being scared and doing what you have to do anyway."

This book is full of surprises.  Just when you think you have things figured out, think again.  The Cowboy and the Princess is funny and tear jerking at the same time. 

I will admit this review was hard for me to write, without giving away spoilers.  I really enjoyed this book.  I'm looking forward to the next book in the series A Cowboy for Christmas and going back to read the first book, The Cowboy Takes a Bride.

I received this book from the author, with the hopes that I would read and post a review.
