Book Blitz & Giveaway: The Cowboy Earns A Bride- Cora Seton

I have to admit that I have a certain weakness for cowboys and their stories.  Growing up on a ranch/farm and still firmly planted in the horse industry has me around cowboys all the time.  So yes, here is another great Cowboy romance.  We hope you enjoy the post! :) 

The Cowboy Earns a Bride
by Cora Setone

Wedding bells are ringing on the Double-Bar-K and Luke Matheson is determined to make his move on his favorite bridesmaid—sweet, sexy Mia Start. Though she's shared his house for more than two months, she's remained elusive. Luke's ready to cross that divide, and win her love for good.

Mia would give anything to marry Luke, but he won't want her once he knows the truth; she’s four months pregnant with another man’s child. It's time to find a real home—and a real job—so she can raise her baby alone.

When a nosy neighbor exposes Mia’s pregnancy at his brother's wedding, Luke sees his chance to finally get what he wants. He lays claim to the baby—and to Mia—but their happily-ever-after lasts barely a day. When Luke's pride clashes with Mia's need for independence, Mia calls the wedding off.

Can Luke convince her to change her mind? Or will these wedding bells sound the death knell of their relationship?

His father spoke up again. “I gave your brothers deadlines to speed things along.”

“Won’t work with me,” Luke said, coming out of his reverie. “I’m not the one holding up the proceedings; Mia is. Beside, you won’t kick me off the ranch; I’m the only extra pair of hands you’ve got left.” It was true; Jake and Rob were too busy with their own ventures to do more than help out now and then with some of the chores, and Ned was still recovering from breaking his leg last month. That left Luke and Holt to pick up the slack.

“I’ll think of something.”

Lisa sighed. “You know what, old man? I think you’ll just mind your own business for once.”

“I will, will I?” Holt set his silverware down too.

“Yes, you will. Because I’m going to set the deadline this time. You’ve got six months to convince that girl to marry you, Luke, or I’ll help her move along. No, don’t worry—I won’t be rude. There’s no sense in either of you keeping the other from meeting your true love, if you aren’t meant to be together. Meanwhile, your father won’t say one word about Mia, your relationship, or marriage in general during that time.” She held up a hand when Holt began to sputter. “Not one word, or you’ll take me to France. That’s the deal. Keep quiet and we’ll celebrate our thirty-fifth anniversary on the ranch. Speak your mind and we’ll go to Paris.” She beamed. “My money’s on Paris.”

“My money’s on me finding another place to live,” Luke growled, pushing back from the table. “You can’t kick Mia out of my house if I want her there. Besides, I don’t see what the hurry is.”

Lisa became serious. “I think you will all too soon.”
