Kissed by a Cowboy

By Debra Clopton

Having lived through her parents’ divorces, Cassidy Starr knows when the stakes are not in her favor. Divorced herself and humiliated, her faith on rocky ground Cassidy is done with love. Finished. So over it.

Instead, she’s returned to Wishing Springs Texas and the rundown farm she’s inherited from her great aunt Roxie. She’ll reopen the organic strawberry farm and a Bed & Breakfast — follow in her aunt’s footsteps and remain forever-independent, happy . . . and single.
Rancher Jarrod Monahan’s hands are full running the ranch, helping to look after his ailing grandfather and track rustlers on the loose. He’s pushed all longings for a family of his own right off of his list of priorities. Besides he was in love once and ran scared and lost his shot. But suddenly the regret of his life has moved in next door with a wounded heart determined to become a spinster . . . and that’s not happening on his watch.
Suddenly sparks are flying as Jarod has one thing taking priority and that’s breaking down the walls around Cassidy’s stubborn heart. He’s going to prove that being kissed by this cowboy comes with a lifetime commitment and the matrimonial bliss she’s given up on.
And the good folks of Wishing Springs have decided that falling in love has never been so fun to watch.


Two people made poor decisions that will affect their entire lives. Jarrod ran off to another state to work. Cassidy ran off to another state and marriage.

Jarrod came to his senses and returned home too late to marry Cassidy. Years later he’s still on the ranch next door to her great aunt’s farm when Cassidy shows up.

Her Aunt Roxie had left the farm to Cassidy. Now Cassidy is divorced and wants to make a success of turning the farm into an organic strawberry farm and a bed and breakfast.

Even though Jarrod has his hands full running the ranch and fighting off cattle rustlers, he still wants to marry Cassidy. She, on the other hand, wants nothing to do with marriage to anyone. Remaining single like Aunt Roxie did makes much more sense to her. Who’s going to win this battle of the wills?

Thank you, Ms Clopton, for another Four of Hearts Ranch Romance. Too bad there’s not another brother hidden away somewhere. I surely do like your cowboys. I’m looking forward to your next book.
