Welcome to Four Corners Ranch, where the West is still wild…and when a cowboy needs a wife, he decides to find her the old-fashioned way.
Cowboy Sawyer Garrett has no intention of settling down. But when he becomes a single dad to tiny baby June, stepping up to the responsibility is nonnegotiable. And so is finding a woman to be a mother to his infant daughter. So, he decides to do it how the pioneers did: he puts out an ad for a mail-order bride.
Evelyn Moore can’t believe she’s agreed to uproot her city life to marry a stranger in Oregon. But having escaped one near-disastrous marriage, she’s desperate for change. Her love for baby June is instant. Her feelings for Sawyer are more complicated. Her gruff cowboy husband ignites thrilling desire in her, but Sawyer is determined to keep their marriage all about the baby. But what happens if Evelyn wants it all?
Unbridled Cowboy by Maisey Yates is the kind of romance that lures me in deep. I find the characters irresistibly charming. Each one is having their own life crisis and by coming together on mutual terms they find a life work making. Only this mutual contract goes to shreds once the contract continues. It is hot, raw, instant attraction on first meeting for these characters. They try to deny it or pretend it is not there when it keeps hitting them harder. The saying the more you ignore, the more it is going to burst comes to mind. It shows just how hard it is to ignore the matters of the heart. Their angry banters were fun as heck to follow. I love every moment with Sawyer and Evelyn. Sawyer is a player, but he does not shy away from duties. That includes his family, his family legacy, and his newborn daughter. Now, he needs a wife to be a mother for his daughter in hopes he can give the family he never had as a kid. Then, there is Evelyn who is just as hardworking, independent, and strong. Yet she misses out on the family thing and wants one of her own. She wants to be a better mother than hers was. In the end, these two have a lot of learning from each other. Trust, faith, and honesty creates a beautifully yet unforgettable journey in this new novel. Overall, Maisey Yates still proves she still has the magic to make laugh-out-loud scenes, realistic characters, and a love that is worth keeping all come to life. I highly recommend giving this read a try!
