Welcome to Chance Creek. In this first selection of books based around the good-looking cowboys of Chance Creek we meet a group of friends out to find their brides. This box set consists of:
The Cowboy Inherits a Bride – When Sunshine Patterson moves to Chance Creek to fulfil her dream of running her own restaurant she is in for a few surprises, least of all being Cole Linden. Finding out that they are both inheritors of the same building puts the pair toe to toe in a competition that would save one and ruin the other. But will sharing an apartment bring them closer or make them fight harder?
The Cowboy’s Email Order Bride – Ethan Cruz thought his life was set until the day his parents died. His family ranch is on the brink of bankruptcy and the woman he loves has left him, the last thing Ethan needs is to be the butt of yet another practical joke by his friend, Rob. But will the joke be him when Autumn Leeds, a New York girl, answers the ad for a cowboys bride?
The Cowboy Wins a Bride – Jamie Lassiter has been in love with Claire Cruz since they were children but when Claire leaves the ranch and moves away, Jamie believes he has lost his chance. With the wedding of his best friend on the horizon, Jamie makes plans to finally win Claire’s heart but it seems that fear and anger run deep in Claire. Can Jamie convince her that his intentions are true and will Claire ever learn to trust again?
I do love a good cowboy romance. Testosterone filling every page and the women swooning at their boots. This collection did not disappoint. The first book is really only a novella but introduces the main characters for the rest of the series. I was a little disappointed that Cole and Sunshine did not appear in the next two books but after looking into this I found that their story was actually published two years after book 1 and they will return with a continuation of their story in book 9.
These are definite feel good, HEA stories that have their ups and downs but ultimately the cowboy will get his bride. Each story focuses on a different main character who, whether they know it or not, will tread a rocky path in the name of true love.
Wide open ranch land, good friends, and plenty of horses. A very enjoyable read. I will be continuing this series at a later time.
