Never Love a Cowboy (Rogues in Texas #2) Reviews
After having read Lorraine Heath's Texas trilogy I open every one of her books with the expectation of finding similar gems. Unfortunately it never happened again and although this one was a nice read it is still far below the magic of Texas Destiny.
The hero of this book is an Englishman, a younger son whose father decided he had enough of his troubles and sent him to America. He finds himself very much attracted to the heroine but has no thoughts of settling down, what he wants, or believes he ...more

I have no idea why I keep allowing so much time to pass between my reading of Lorraine Heath's novels. I was shocked to discover that four whole years have gone by since I last read one of her books, which happened to be the first in her Rogues in Texas series. My only excuse is that I keep getting distracted by other books and authors or I keep trying to read certain books that fit the various reading challenges in which I participate. But whatever the reasons, I really ...more
Jessye works in her father's saloon serving drinks. When she was sixteen she fell in love with a handsome, smooth-talking dude who promised her the world and instead left her heart and reputation in tatters. Jessye believes that she is unworthy of a husband and a family of her own because of her past. She dreams of becoming independent from men and making her way on her own. This is why she agrees to finance a half-cocked idea thought up by two Englishmen to round up cattle and deliver them east ...more

Ini pertama kalinya saya baca karya Lorraine Heath. Entah karena setting Texas-nya yang liar, entah karena hero-nya bajingan nyebelin, entah karena saya suka banget dengan cowboy dan peternakan atau entah karena cara bertutur Lorraine Heath yang mengaduk perasaan, yang jelas saya sukaaaaa banget novel ini.
Berlatar di Texas antara tahun 1865 - 1866, Never Love A Cowboy menyajikan kisah cinta yang hangat di antara keliaran alam dan suasananya. Melihat transformasi Harry dari bangsawan Inggris menj ...more
Buku kedua Seri Rogue of Texas ini masih menyuguhkan romance yg menarik. Adu mulut antara Harry dan Jessye layak dibaca krn masing-masing pintar memutarbalikkan perkataan lawan bicara. Di awal kita diajak ikut berpetualang bersama Harry, Kit dan Jessye utk berburu ternak-ternak di daerah sekitar Kansas. Turun naik emosi mereka berjalan seiring juga turun naiknya suasana menegangkan dimana banyak hewan liar, ganas begitu pula orang-orang yg dijumpai oleh mereka.
Titik balik terjadi saat Harry meng ...more
