My review of The Dreamer and the Cowboy by Debra Ullrick

About the book:

Born and raised on a ranch, Teagan Baxter has never felt like she belonged. She has no interest in ranching or cowboys. All she wants is to pursue her dream of dancing on stage. The one person who believed in her dreams was her mother. On her death bed, she makes Teagan promise to not let anyone or anything stop her from pursuing her dream, not even her father. Teagan is determined to keep that promise. However, she didn’t count on the handsome rancher from Amarillo riding into her life.

When Kage Jenkins hires on with the Circle B Cross ranch, it is with one purpose… to learn every phase of Colorado mountain ranching so he can buy a place of his own in Grand County. He feels an immediate connection to Teagan Baxter, but he refuses to pursue her because she was born to dance, not ranch. And he is determined not to do anything to interfere with her dreams.

My review

This story was compulsively readable and very well-written. The pacing felt just right and held my interest so I read it from start to finish in one day. There was believable tension between characters. Everything felt natural including their attraction to each other and their emotional responses to different things that came up.. Several times I was moved to tears and it may be that the heroine's emotional expression reminded me of other situations that I've experienced in my own life. Regardless of how it happened, this author had me in tears several times, but they were the kind that were rejoicing in the heroine's healing on her journey. They were not tears of grief or sorrow. The scenes that moved my heart were beautiful and healing. I dare say this book really brings out the author's passion for story-telling and is one of her best books. As soon as I got it I read it straight through. Highly recommended and worth every penny (and then some!)

This awesome novella just came out yesterday so get it today on Amazon HERE
