3 cowboys…2 weeks…1 wedding!
Three all-new stories by Kim Law, Terri Osburn, and Liz Talley
Claire, Georgia, and Mary Catherine couldn’t be more different, but they promised they would be there for one another no matter what. And when they all gather in Holly Hills, Texas, for Mary Catherine’s Christmas wedding, they’ll find they have one thing in common: hearts that are about to be branded—by unforgettable cowboys.
In “Love Me, Cowboy” by Terri Osburn, wallflower Claire would be more excited about the wedding if it didn’t mean running into Mary Catherine’s brother—the bull rider she once had a scorching one-night stand with…
Ivy League volleyball coach Georgia never wanted to see Holly Hills—or another cowboy—again. But a sexy veterinarian is making her rethink her vow to never marry a Texas man in “Kiss Me, Cowboy” by Liz Talley.
Claire and Georgia both think that Mary Catherine is getting hitched to the wrong man, despite how perfect he is. And in “Marry Me, Cowboy” by Kim Law, a local rancher with a wild reputation gives Mary Catherine a glimpse of what might have been—and what could still be...
Ten years after the three musketeers (Claire Campbell, Georgia Hightower and Mary Catherine Holly) graduated from high school, they all return to Holly Hills, Texas, to celebrate the wedding of Mary Catherine. Two weeks is all it takes to change their lives in ways they never expected, for the better. Each will find what they want most out of life which is love and acceptance. Terri Osburn, Liz Talley, and Kim Law invite readers to visit Holly Hills, Texas where friendships run deep and the cowboys are what dreams are made of. I do however caution that this anthology will make you laugh, smile, and bring tears to your eyes.
Terri Osburn is one of my favorite authors. She definitely did not disappoint with her contribution to this anthology. Terri delivers on bringing readers characters they can’t help but fall in love with. Love Me, Cowboy falls under the best friend/sibling romantic troupe. Claire is a school teacher, from one of the most prominent families in Holly Hills. She has a thing for her best friend, Mary Catherine (MC)’s younger brother Tyler. Years ago, bull rider Tyler had a one-night stand with Claire. It was a night neither would ever forget, but one that neither speaks about. After years apart, the two reconnect. But they have to overcome self doubt and family issues to get want they want in the end.
Liz Talley is a new author to me. Liz seems to have the same writing style that Terri and Kim both have. In Kiss Me, Cowboy, Georgia Hightower and Reed McCormick have to overcome identity issues and more in order to find their happy ending. Well, more so Georgia, since she still sees herself as a poor girl who’s parentless and from the wrong side of tracks. Reed is going to have to convince Georgia that Holly Hills isn’t so bad and that she’s worthy of a man like him. After all, Reed is really a vet who just so happens to dress as a cowboy.
I love second chance romances. In Marry Me, Cowboy, Kim Law brings you two people who at the young age of eighteen were so much in love that they wanted to get married and spend the rest of their lives together. But when parents interfere, their relationship fizzles. Or does it? Marry Me, Cowboy is all about two people living their lives for other people instead of themselves. Believing that they have to show people what they presume people want to see. But Mary Catherine and Jax Tipton are going to discover that you need to truly be your own person and take a risk or two in order to have your dreams come true.
I don’t know if the authors plan on spinning this anthology into a series or not, but I would definitely love to return to Holly Hills.
