A Cowboy’s Dare by Lucy Thompson (review by Kristi)

About the book:  Tyrone woke up with a headache—and a wife. And he’s never been so scared in his life.

Mayor’s daughter Jane Montgomery has always wanted to be more than a social ornament, and now that her father has given her a three-month deadline to find a suitable husband, she’s desperate. Desperate enough to run away from her pampered life of ribbons and bows to pursue her dream of becoming a mechanical engineer.

But right before her planned escape, she’s the victim of a matchmaking prank involving spiked punch and a certain local rancher.

Ever since he failed to stop his mother from going mad, Tyrone Harding — local daredevil rancher who runs hunting expeditions under the banner of “Female-Free Adventures” — has shied away from females, feelings, and anything inhibiting his freedom. Wanting to avoid his family’s questions and his own feelings for Jane, he proposes they fake being in love until she leaves for college, thereby freeing them both.

Their playacting doesn’t fool Tyrone’s brother who challenges him to prove he truly loves Jane. Never one to back down, he accepts the dare: do something loving for her every day — and to record it in a special Cowboy’s Dare book.

The dare has unexpected consequences, and as the sparks fly between them, Tyrone and Jane begin to wonder if they’ll lose more than they gain when Jane departs for school.

My review:  If you are looking for a book with a strong female character that possesses a sense of humor and a man that can keep up with her then look no further. A Cowboy’s Dare is just the book you’ve been searching for. This book grabbed me from the beginning and kept my interest until the very last word.

While the book has a serious storyline there is humor in it too and that made it a fun read. I liked Jane’s spunky attitude and Tyrone was a great match for her. Sometimes the chemistry between the two leaped right off the page. I found myself so entertained that I couldn’t put this book down and read it in just a day’s time.

Lucy Thompson is now on my must-read list and I think you will add her to yours too after reading this book. A quick, fun, and entertaining read!

I received a free copy of this book from the author and was not required to write a positive review. All opinions are mine.
