"Sheriff's Department! Raise your hands above your head and don't move."

She’s a runaway bride who left her two-timing fiance at the altar. He’s a county sheriff determined to keep the peace in his country and leave city girls alone after his own fiance left him for the bright lights of the city. Neither of them planned on running straight into each other... over a burning wedding dress.

Ellie and Lucas planned on never trusting their hearts to love again. When danger follows her from the city, the sheriff must do his duty to protect her. However, it isn’t long before he discovers the real danger may be to his heart. Ellie just might teach him that even a city girl can be a country girl at heart.


In Review My Thoughts

Y’all know I’m a sucker for a good sweet, small town romance. It should come as no surprise that I jumped at the chance to read and review a title called His Country Bride. 😉 I’m glad I did, too. It was a short and (yes) sweet, easy read and it introduced me to a new author. I enjoyed this one!

His Country Bride hooked me right from the very first page. I mean, how could it not with a half naked woman burning her wedding dress being found by the local cop? Come on now? This is totally up my alley. (Or, country road, as the case may be here.) As the story continued, I got more invested in Lucas and Ellie and their story. I liked the push and pull between them and the drama created by it. The attraction was real, but Lucas’ sense of duty and past definitely got in the way. So, too, did Ellie’s fears that she was just a job for him. I liked their chemistry and, of course, the kissing. 🙂 Add to it all the underlying suspenseful storyline surrounding the man watching her property and it became an unputdownable read.

If you’re like me and you like to indulge in a good small town romance that’s low on the steam and big on the sweet, you should definitely give this one a try. I really liked the setting and Ellie’s spunk. Lucas was super swoony, even when he frustrated me a little. The two of them were a great fit and I enjoyed watching them finally realize it.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.


About Debra Holt

Born and raised in the Lone Star state of Texas, Debra grew up among horses, cowboys, wide open spaces, and real Texas Rangers. Pride in her state and ancestry knows no bounds and it is these heroes and heroines she loves to write about the most. She also draws upon a variety of life experiences including working with abused children, caring for baby animals at a major zoo, and planning high-end weddings (ah, romance!).
Debra's real pride and joys, however, are her son, an aspiring film actor, and a daughter with aspirations to join the Federal Bureau of Investigation. (more story ideas!) When she isn't busy writing about tall Texans and feisty heroines, she can be found cheering on her Texas Tech Red Raiders, or heading off on another cruise adventure. She read her first romance...Janet Dailey's Fiesta San Antonio, over thirty years ago and became hooked on the genre. Writing contemporary western romances, is both her passion and dream come true, and she hopes her books will bring smiles...and sighs... to all who believe in happily-ever-after's.
