#BigLibraryRead Cowboy Pride by Lacy Williams


Title: Cowboy Pride (Wild Wyoming Hearts #3)
Author: Lacy Williams

Synopsis: "Everyone knows a rancher in possession of a large spread needs a wife."

First impressions count.

Liza Bennett has two missions in life: keep the family’s shop afloat, and ensure her shy sister finds love. Sparks fly when she meets rancher Rob Darcy at a town dance, but when she overhears him insult her, she vows to put the man out of her mind. Rob Darcy is instantly attracted to the vivacious Liza but a lack of social graces and the promise he’s keeping ruin his chances of winning her.

Once jilted, Janie Bennett is appropriately gun-shy of falling in love again. But she doesn't seem to be able to help herself when she meets charming Nathan Bingley. Bingley desperately wants a wife and family of his own. Can he trust that Janie returns his feelings?

When Janie is injured in a spring storm, she and Liza are sequestered on Nathan’s ranch. Hearts and emotions get tangled, but will first impressions prove true, or false?

Cowboy Pride is a Wild West version of Pride and Prejudice with dual love stories.

Any Sequels or Adaptations you enjoy?  I was pretty much a purist until I realized JAFF (Jane Austen Fan Fiction) opened Austen up to a new audience. Abigail Reynold's books were the 1st I read that made me become something of an addict.
