The Cowboy Takes a Bride - Lori Wilde Ok, so actually this would be more like a 3.5 for me but I'm feeling generous. It is essentially a sweet, sappy contemporary western. Yeah. And I just don't "get" the "cutter" thing there unless one says this is the cowboy version of a dressage queen. Somehow, I doubt it.

But anyway, that's all window dressing and opportunities for drama and friction between H/h. Not like they need *that* when they already have their own personal issues - his being that he's a widow (and celibate!) and hers being that her father abandoned his family for horses (uh...ok). Oh, and apparently her father treated him like the son he never had (and the daughter he abandoned) which caused a tad of additional friction.

There *was* some humorous dialog between protagonists.
