THE LADY AND THE COWBOY has a very promising story line, a likeable heroine, a heart throb hero, and interesting secondary characters as well. It just needs a lot of polish to be a truly great read.

At times the dialogue and story are short and choppy--almost like it was an outline or just thoughts thrown down on paper that were intended to be fleshed out more lately. There are no transitional words, not much descriptive text, and it is very strange to read. Then other times, the dialogue and story flows very well. It was perplexing.

The worst for me, however, are the love scenes. Ewwwwww. Very poorly done. You might has well have been reading from one of those old health department pamphlets on the mechanics of the body, because it actually might have been less painful to wade through. I'm not talking about them being graphic---I'm talking about them sounding clinical and very, very unromantic. Love scenes should be about the emotions, the feelings, and the character's thoughts more than the mechanics of this goes here, that goes there. It was almost like "step 1, step 2, step 3."

After the first one or two of these love scenes, I was ready to toss the book aside, but thankfully the story line was just engaging enough that I had to continue so I could find out the answer to they mystery.

So my suggestion? Skip over the love scenes and you'll be relatively pleased with an original storyline.

This book might have had a chance. Might have. It had so many small issues that it compounded and ruined the book. First, the female lead was supposed to be English. In no way was that felt through her style of writing for the character. It was obviously an American writing about their idea of what an English woman would have been like at the end of the 1800's. Secondly, an English "Lady" would NEVER EVER discuss sex with a significant other before marriage. Discussion of DOUCHE was brought up waaaaaayyyy to often for any human to be comfortable. Especially, as a "hey big boy, wanna play?" type comment!!! Horrid, horrid book!! Could've been great. But nope!

This was a delightful, light read. An English woman inherits half a ranch when her husband dies and she travels to America because she wants to get away from all the restraints of society in England. Her husband was a bounder who married her, took her dowry and left her high and dry by traveling to America.
She was living off the mercy of a relative and was a source of gossip in England.

When she arrives at the ranch... she is treated rudely by a cowboy she meets. The fellow from town hauls her trunks up to the house and Mrs. Wakefield welcomes Ruth into the house and gets her settled in a beautiful room.

Everything is alien to her. So different from England. Turns out, the rude cowboy is Mrs. Wakefield's son and is the other half-owner of the ranch. It's a horse ranch that Sam Wakefield is trying to build in reputation. Complete with successful racing horses to stand to stud, stock horses... all the needs of the horse world.

Ruth's beloved horse, a stallion she named Angel, arrives a few weeks after she does. Angel is a very fast horse with good bloodlines and just what Sam needs to help the ranch succeed.

Ruth has to throw off her missish ways and learn to ride western saddle, astride and turns out she also needs to be the jockey for Angel. He runs faster for her than for anyone else.

There is a man who has coveted the ranch and he is trying many evil and damaging plans to get control of the ranch.

Will the man win? Will Ruth let Sam use her beloved stallion she trained from 1 year old to race and be a stud?

Is there going to be romance between Ruth and Sam? Or will the fellow from town win her heart? Read the book and find out. :)

I would have given this 3 stars if it had been clean. The story was ok. Typical predictable but enjoyable romance. If I had known there were descriptive sex scenes I would have passed on this one. I did finish it as the writing was good enough for me to care about the characters.

So, I'm about 55% into this book and I don't think I'm going to finish. It's just ridiculous for them to talk about birth control and douching, and it wasn't just once they talked about douching, According to my iPad they spoke of it 10 times.
Sam was ok for me but Ruth was just too lady-like and didn't want to give an inch, until after they talked about sex and she gave him a quick "all right."
Now, maybe some of you can help me out here. I noticed that the word "realised" was used a lot in this book, 32 times to be exact, and it didn't look right so I went to my dictionary and found that it's supposed to be "realized." Once or twice I can see that happening but not 32 times. And the word "whilst" was used 39 times, another word that drove me crazy.
I liked Mamma but Cassy might as well not been in the book. She was referred to but as of 55% she never said a word. AND you knew from the minute you met Tobias that he was going to be a creep.
Sorry! I might give this author another try but this book is just not that good. I gave it 3 stars because I'm not finishing it.
