Blurb:  New York Times bestselling author Lori Wilde’s series set in Cupid, TX continues as one free-wheeling cowboy discovers he has a child—and a chance at real love with the last woman he expected.

What would it take to tame a wild cowboy?

One minute, Rhett Lockhart is a love ‘em and leave ‘em bull rider with a slow, sexy smile, a swagger, and not a care in the world. The next, he learns his free-wheeling days are over: a baby has been abandoned in the hospital, and there’s no question: he’s the father. But from the first moment he gazes into his daughter’s eyes, he knows the moment has come to say ‘no’ to no-strings. It’s time to grow up.

Standing in his way is the baby’s foster mother, Tara Alzate, who doesn’t quite believe Rhett is ready to change his ways. Still, she’s not not immune to his considerable charms. So when he proposes a marriage of convenience and shared custody, against her better judgement, she says “I do.” Can Tara tame this wild cowboy and make her own, long-buried dreams come true?

First off, the blurb is wrong and could have been written better. Does it matter? I don’t know. Tara is the one who devises the marriage of convenience, not Rhett. Would that detail matter to you? (shrug). Anyway…

To Tame a Wild Cowboy is the third novel in the Cupid, Texas series by Lori Wilde that I’ve read (there are a total of 7 plus a novella). Like the others, To Tame a Wild Cowboy can be read as a standalone and is an involving, completely engrossing cowboy romance.

While I liked the romance between charming Rhett and pragmatic Tara, I did find myself annoyed with Tara’s sometimes stick-in-the-mud behavior. I wanted her to lighten up a bit, enjoy life (which she finally did when she became tipsy), but that would probably be the only issue I have with this warm-hearted and sometimes heart-wrenching novel.

At about the three-quarter mark, action picks up with events that while not totally unexpected, feel satisfying. Like Wilde’s other novels, the multiple layers of story add to the total enjoyment as does the family involvement (just gotta love the big family element), and the slight touch of magic.

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
