Publisher's Summary

Ethan Cruz should be mending fences on his Montana ranch, but instead he's driving to the Chance Creek, Montana, airport - to pick up the bride he didn't know he had. This latest salvo in his ongoing practical joke battle with his best friend Rob Matheson has gone too far, and Ethan plans to send his "bride" right back home, then get busy plotting his revenge. One look at Autumn Leeds changes his mind, however. Perhaps he needs a bride, after all. A breathtakingly beautiful city bride. Autumn Leeds needs a story - fast - or she's going to lose her lucrative contract with CityPretty Magazine, so when she sees the crazy video plea for a modern mail-order bride for a cowboy, it sounds like the story of the century. Making a video of her own, she casts herself as the perfect mail-order bride for a rancher, but when she finally reaches Montana, she's surprised to find Ethan's the perfect cowboy husband-to-be. Against her better judgment, her plan to keep her handsome groom at arm's length disintegrates into a night of passion spent in his arms.

Ethan knows he can't keep playing this game - he has to come clean with Autumn and tell her the truth; about the practical joke and about the state of his ranch. He's about to lose it all because of the debts his mother racked up before his parents' deaths. Now his sister, Claire, wants to sell the ranch and collect what little money they can. He'll be out of a home and a job, and in no shape to support the bride he desperately wants to marry, after all. Autumn's in bigger trouble than ever. Not only has she fallen in love with the subject of her expose - she might be carrying his child. If she doesn't write this article and secure her contract for another year, she'll lose everything - her career, her apartment, and more importantly, her family's approval. The only alternative is to stay and marry Ethan. But how can she trust a man she's just met when she knows too well that men always let you down?

Looking forward to the rest of the series

Any additional comments?

I thought this was a good plot which was humorous loved how the practical joke came back an bite them in the butt. As with most things when the truth comes out it is very painful. This couple will have a lot to work through before they can find a HEA if they can.

I do have to say the narrator Amy Rubinate wasn't the best I have ever heard. Not saying she was bad I just didn't think her voice fit the story it was to sexy for me. It didn't stop me from listening to her nor from buying two others of this series. I just didn't care for it with this kind of story. But you be the judge don't let what I say stop you from reading it. She isn't bad and in no way did she stop me from listening. This wasn't a book I wanted to listen to all at once but I did want to finish it.

I loved the practical jokes and laughed myself silly over a few of them. It is a book about best friends having fun and how their jokes get them in a mess of trouble.One being how Ethan got his self a mail-order bride. I enjoyed watching this couple fall for each other finding out that maybe what they thought they wanted wasn't it at all but once they listened to their hearts they found what they truly wanted. I have to say this couple had some powerful chemistry between them and the author does give a few surprises to them. lol

There are some great characters here some are misunderstood others just want to cause trouble because they themselves aren't happy. The author reminds us of a few lessons in life. Friends no matter what stand together practical jokes or not. I loved these men and what they stand for. It was nice to see Autumn work out what she really wanted in life even though her mother drilled in her head what a women should want she finally found her way to what her heart desire was. Ethan I just adored him from the start he was a stand up man and his friends are so full of their selves you have to love them. I do look forward to finding out how their lives turn out as the series continues.All in all this wasn't a bad listen to, I did buy two others in this series.

Terrific Series!

What would have made The Cowboy's E-Mail Order Bride better?

Did not care for the narrator at all. Too bad she narrates all the series

Who was your favorite character and why?

Cab....he just seems like a big ol bear you want to hug on!

How could the performance have been better?

Sounds like the narrator didn't even read the book prior to narrating.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

everything! loved it!

Any additional comments?

Please find a new narrator.

It was good to see many of the secondary characters from The Cowboy Inherits A Bride. This is an contemporary adaption on the historical mail-order bride theme. Over all it does a good job.

An impractical joke goes bust with a very HEA.

This begins with a joke of epic proportions, but backfires into the very best ending for the two involved. Can true love overcome the huge lies that bring these two together?

Nice

I enjoyed this light, easy romance. The characters were charming and easy to like or in some cases dislike. This would be easy to read in an afternoon. I listened to the audio version and enjoyed it. The narration was o.k.

Modern cowboy romance

Hot headed people getting the wrong impressions. This story was interesting and enjoyable. Hey, I usually go for biker and werewolf stories and I liked this romance.

I enjoyed the story

4.5 stars
I enjoyed this story but there was *something * about the voice over actresses voice that I didn't like.

Regarding the story itself, I enjoyed the characters and am looking forward to stories for Jaime and Rob.
