THE COWBOY TAKES A BRIDE
Ross Denton works hard making his farm productive. In town for supplies, he sees a woman struggling to unpack a car, so he steps in to help Sugar Rae Lenox, who is new in town. The sparks zinging between Ross and Sugar are fast and furious, but when he discovers her primary reason for moving to town -- she wants to set up a theater in his barn and cast him in the starring role of hero -- he decides against acting on his attraction. But Sugar is stubborn to a fault and has no intention of accepting no as an answer. Debra Clopton's The Cowboy Takes a Bride (3) is a fun if unsensational book.
