Alexa S. - Oh, you and your cowboys, Estelle 🙂 But really, this book sounds like a fun read! I really love a good romance novel, but it’s even better that this one has three best friends in it too 🙂

June 7, 2014 - 12:55 pm

Ann - It would definitely be the food. haha

Quinn @ Quinn's Book Nook - I’ve been wanting to try out Linda Lael Miller’s books for awhile now, I just haven’t gotten around to it. I LOVE romances that have main characters having really strong friendships. I think Nora Roberts is really good at that.

Glad you liked The Marriage Plot. I’ll have to add it to my TBR list.

Alexa Y. - I rarely read contemporary romances, but this one sounds fun (as do most of the ones that you post about)! I like the aspect of them being friends before, and meeting again many years later. Plus, cowboys are always a good thing 😉

October 16, 2013 - 8:41 pm

Holly - The last romance I read is the Wrong Billionaire’s Bed by Jessica Clare. Great book!

October 16, 2013 - 12:54 pm

Amy R - I am currently reading Drawn Together by Lauren Dane.

October 16, 2013 - 11:41 am

Hannah - Last romance I read was probably Safe Haven by Nicholas Sparks. My favourite book of all time, I probably read it like one a month, and every time is just as good as the previous!

October 14, 2013 - 6:41 pm

April Books & Wine - I am jonesing for a good contemporary romance — I might have to take a break from Christmas romance and read So Tough To Tame soon!

October 12, 2013 - 5:44 am

michelle - i love the second chance/old friends/shared history romance trope. actually i really like romance novels where the heroine and hero are not meeting for the first, that they have some sort of history because then i’m able to buy that they fall in love in a relatively short amount of time. i gotta read this book!

October 10, 2013 - 9:57 pm

Wendy - Ohhh I love love love cowboys. So basically, I need to check this one out. =) Last romance I read was Lucky in Love, the 4th in the lucky harbor series!

October 10, 2013 - 9:45 pm

Betty - Romance…. I just read the first 2 books of Colleen Hoover’s Slammed series. LOVED THEM!! Gotta grab book 3 soon. I’m all for some steam when there is a great story behind it! Not sold on cowboys, but maybe this one will change my mind??? 😉

October 10, 2013 - 9:34 pm

Jamie - Is Victoria Dahl related to Ronald Dahl the other famous children’s author? Looks like an amazing read!

October 10, 2013 - 2:46 pm

Jamie - CRAP. I commented before I entered the giveaway. My answer: The Duke and I…which I LOVED.

October 10, 2013 - 2:45 pm

Jamie - COWBOYS! I know some people gagged in the Unearthly series bc Tucker was a cowboy but I LOVED IT. Which is probably why I watch Nashville. And probably why I find Keith Urban and Tim McGraw super sexy (and Blake Shelton..even when he wore a cowboy hat with his LOOOOONG hair). Something about those men.

ANYWAYS..back to the book! I’ve heard of this author but obviously you know I’m so new to the romance scene that I haven’t read anything by her. I’m already LOVING that this is set in Jackson Hole bc I had a friend who was from there and it was BEAUTIFUL (from the pictures she showed me haha). This sounds so good and I like that you emphasize that there is more than just panty melting scenes. Sounds like my kind of book as I ease into the genre!

Thanks for the giveaway, too!

Quinn @ Quinn's Book Nook - I’ve never read anything by Victoria Dahl, but now I want to just to see what the steaminess is like. Plus, a good story is always a plus!

October 10, 2013 - 11:31 am

Therine - The last book I read was Bunheads by Sophie Flack… its a good book with a stupid ending.

October 10, 2013 - 10:04 am

Hollie @ Music, Books and Tea - I’m really into romance novels at the moment, so I’ll definitely have to look into this one. I’m pleased that it’s got a good balance of story and hot scenes – it always makes for a more fun read. Fab review!

October 10, 2013 - 9:35 am

Tammy - I’m currently reading a romance novel, Nearly A Lady by Alissa Johnson. Someone recommended it I just don’t remember who 🙂

Alexa Y. - Cowboys! A ranch! This book sounds like a positively escapist sort of read, as I’ve never really met a cowboy or gone to real ranch. I’m glad that the relationship and how it develops is done fairly well, and it’s also great that each character has their own challenges to deal with.

September 10, 2013 - 7:52 am

Maggie, Young Adult Anonymous - Okay, Estelle. You have me intrigued enough that I may get over my hatred of ridiculous names (Brylee??) to read this. Kissing cowboys! Mmm hmm…

The only small town I’d want to visit is Stars Hollow! 🙂

September 7, 2013 - 10:42 pm

Kai W. - There are two places I would love to revisit. They are Ojai (in Southern California) and Half Moon Bay (up near San Francisco). I found them to be quite calm and quiet without the hussle and bussle of the city.

September 5, 2013 - 7:15 pm

Bookworm1858 - I don’t read a lot of contemporary romances or western books but I do like the sound of this one especially since you say the characters are so realistic and down to earth.

September 5, 2013 - 6:39 pm

Leah @ The Pretty Good Gatsby - I’m SUCH a sucker for cowboys/country boys. Mmm. I see Miller’s books constantly at work and have been curious for a while now. 🙂 You’ve sold me on this one, Estelle!

September 5, 2013 - 1:52 pm

Tammy - I would love to drive up the northwest coast again. Small coastal towns are fun to pop in and visit.
