The Cowboy Lassos A Bride (The Cowboys of Chance Creek #6) by Cora Seton

20764346Jake Matheson loves everything about ranching the Double-Bar-K, except for his father’s controlling nature. It’s bad enough the old man won’t step down and let him run things his own way. Now Holt has demanded that Jake find a wife—in the next thirty days. Jake knows just the woman he wants–Hannah Ashton–but they haven’t even gone on a date, let alone been together long enough for him to propose. He’ll have to work fast to secure her hand in marriage before his time is up.

Hannah Ashton loves the fifteen hundred pound bison she rescued from being the object of a trophy hunt. She’s grateful for Gladys’s temporary home on the Double Bar K—and for the chance it gives her to see Jake on a daily basis. But now Holt Matheson is threatening to kick Gladys off the ranch—or eat her!—unless Hannah spends fourteen consecutive nights with Jake. What they get up to together is their business, but if Hannah misses a night, it’s bye-bye bison.

Jake can’t believe Hannah has agreed to move into his cabin, but now his brother Ned is stirring up trouble, trying to break them up before he can propose. Hannah’s beginning to think it’ll be hard to leave the ranch when her fourteen nights are over—even if she’s heading to veterinary school. She’s falling for Jake–hard–but Jake wants a traditional wife, not a career woman.

Will a pregnancy scare unite Jake and Hannah in a common goal? Or will it drive them apart for good?

I love this series. Cora Seton knows how to write a great story. Jake is the oldest of the Matheson brothers. Hannah is Bella’s helper at the vet in town. All of Hannah’s friends are married to great guys and evener boos is about to get married to a great guy thanks to her. She helped Bella get on a TV reality show and win enough money to keep her vet practice going and met a great man as well. Hannah wants to become a vet as well and has to take classes. Now that she broke up with her boyfriend she can concentrate on that and forget men in general.

Jake has always like Hannah from afar. She was always with her boyfriend and he never had a chance. Now they have a chance and he wants to see where it goes. They get thrown together with some help Hannah has 14 days to see what can happen but if that going to be enough to see where these two go?

Another great book in this series. The author has a way with getting you sucked into the story to see where things go. You get to hear more of past characters you have read and about and meet a few news ones along the way. There is never a dull moment in any of the books.

Thank you NetGalley for allowing me to read for an honest review.
