Katie never expected her impromptu vacation at her best friend’s dude ranch to have such glorious scenery…or tight wrangler clad cowboys.

Frustrated over losing her job, Katie accepts her best friend’s invitation to spend a few weeks at their dude ranch in Wyoming. She never expected the stampede of desire when she caught a glimpse of her first authentic cowboy. Her mind immediately wondered what the handsome cowboy hid beneath his dusty wranglers. Katie never expected to find a man, let alone one whose kisses turned her limbs into jello. Can she return to her life in the city and leave the charming cowboy behind?

“Can you take me for a ride today?”

A spontaneous vacation to visit her best friend shows Katie exactly what she was missing.

This was a very short story but a very good one which I enjoyed. It was sensually descriptive without overpowering the characters and the whole story. The plot was as simple as it could be and everything came together very well.

However, I do wish that there was a little bit more to the whole story. The ending was good but it felt incomplete because of the lack of depth or detail about the characters themselves. I wanted to know more about them and maybe get at least a hint of their life after.

Nonetheless, this story is perfect for anyone looking for a short romance without it being complicated.


  1. Thank you for the lovely review! I’m so glad you enjoyed the story. Perhaps one day I will return to their story. <3 I'm sure there's more there they'd love to share.
