A PRINCE AMONG MEN
Carla Reece had never met anyone more infuriating in her life. The blond giant who swaggered up to her door had no right to take over half her ranch - no matter how stupid her brother had been gambling it away in a high-stakes poker game. Her new foreman claimed to be some foreign royalty who promised to leave in a year. Still, a year was way too long to spend with a man who made her madder than a wet hen and weak in the knees all at the same time. 


A HELLION AMONG WOMEN 
Ivan may have charmed everyone in town into thinking he was the perfect gentleman, but Carla knew better. There had to be a chink in his armor-a red-hot passion under that calm, cool gaze. But once she finds it, she may be in for more than she ever bargained for...


My thoughts:
A cowboy prince, now that is something new for me and I liked it. Not to mention most books I have read about cowboys have been modern ones, but here we got real cowboys. And I do love cowboys. 

Carla loves her ranch. She is outspoken and is being courted by two men, cos she is pretty and the farm is big. But she wants something else. I did like that she was no weak miss who could do nothing. She was a real woman in a hard era. 

Ivan is a Polish prince who came to America to make a fortune (or at least get some money). He is a cowboy, he fought in the war, and he is a true gentleman. He is stylish and his tongue is golden. Anyone would melt when he was sweet to them, well all except Carla. And I do like a couple who banter. 

At the back of my head I had heard that voice tell me that it could not work, and he sure could not take her back to Poland. And as always I wondered how this love story would work out. 

But the book wasn't just about the love story. No we got cattle thieves, Carla dealing with her brother who gambled away half the ranch, and everyday dealings in town. And of course trying to deal with Ivan who shows up and tells her he will take care of the other half of the ranch. 

Conclusion:
It was a good love story, and I sure liked this cowboy prince. He is not average cowboy and she is not your average Texas woman.

Cowboys only rarely catch my attention. I just can't get over the hay and muck that goes along with ranching.

Ohhhhhhh so this book is about me and a Cowboy Prince that is going to come sweep me off my feet? I mean I am not a typical TX female.

A Polish cowboy prince is sure as different as they come!

That is a new one on me too! A Polish cowboy prince? EPIC! :D

Blodeuedd said...

Cherry said...

So, did it work and Ivan took her back to Poland?

Blodeuedd said...

Do you want me to spoil the book for you? I can't, but they got a HEA that made sense

Jenny Girl said...

I have this one right now, and I am torn about it. I like the premise but there's something about the story or dialogue that is driving me crazy. it feels repetitive or something. I'll persevere though :)

Blodeuedd said...

Hm, can't help you there. I hope you stick with it :/
