Purchase*: Amazon *affiliate
Everything's bigger in Big Sky country, including the hearts of the Montana Men... Champion rodeo rider Dane Bowden is eight seconds from winning under the Vegas lights, one last hurrah before reluctantly returning to his family's Montana ranch. But his bull has other plans. When Dane wakes up, he's sure he's died and gone to heaven . . . because the doctor who comes to his aid is the same girl who saved his life and disappeared years ago. Bell would do anything for Dane. He's the fantasy that always kept her going. A child genius hidden away by her family, Bell was the secret no one talked about, the girl no one wanted. Despite finding success as a young surgeon, she's still the awkward girl who's never had a boyfriend. So why does Dane, a notorious playboy and sizzling-hot cowboy, insist on taking her on a real date? Bell is the only woman in Dane's heart. When a rodeo rivalry turns deadly, it's his turn to save Bell's life—because he sure as hell won't lose his guardian angel again.
Heart-warming, suspense and a romance laced with banter, tender moments and a dash of heat Her Lucky Cowboy by Jennifer Ryan had me lost within its pages. I am in love with the Montana Men series. Big Sky country, sexy cowboys and strong woman with a touch of suspense make these contemporary romances delicious. Her Lucky Cowboy is the third book in the series and one of my favorites to date. While this is part of a series feel free to jump right in as each book deals with a new couple.
Coffee Dates with Her Lucky Cowboy
- First Date: We take a trip back in time to a moment where Dane Bowden and Bell briefly meet as young teens. That meeting influenced each of them differently. Fast forward to present day at the Championship Rodeo in Vegas where Dane has the best ride of his life and wins. When dismounting something goes terribly wrong. He wakes briefly to see the same girl who saved his life years ago. Ooo so many things happen on this first date and I am hooked. I love sweet-talking Dane and Bell is quite the mystery. I am all in for my second date.
- Second date: Banter, flirting and a slow building romance develop as Dane begins to unravel Bell. Bell is unsure of Dane’s sincerity especially with the slew of woman coming to visit him at the hospital. Folks refer to them as Dane’s Dames, but the more we learn about Dane the harder I fall. We slowly begin to understand Bell and her history. Part of me is so damn proud of her and the other wants to protect her at all costs. Side threads begin to develop regarding friends of Dane’s and a dangers enemy is lurking. All of which has me singing the “just one more chapter” mantra.
- Third date: Swoons, heat, danger and shedding a tear moments, had me completely wrapped up in this date. While I have no doubt we will get our HEA, twists and danger have me wondering if we will survive this unscathed. The pacing of the story is fantastic and I just did not want to set this down. We see other couples from previous novels and get to know new ones. We see hints of what will come in the next book and I closed Her Lucky Cowboy completely satisfied and craving more from of this author and her Montana Men.
Suspense, a delicious romance and characters you want to befriend made Her Lucky Cowboy a win for me. Again, you can read these as standalone, but I recommend meeting all of the Montana Men. Stone Cold Cowboy, the fourth book releases in February and I am excited for Sadie and Rory’s story.
I love me a cowboy romance. 😉 Montana as a setting, a strong female protagonist, slow-building romance, and a side of suspense. Sign me up! I’ll have to give this series a go sometime. You have definitely piqued my curiosity!
This series has been delightful, swoony cowboys, a little suspense and a heart 🙂
Well, you have me sold on this one. I love the slowly building romance and climax. They’re my favorites and allow for more realistic relationships, even in fiction, I think. I’ll have to see about grabbing this one from the library. Great review!
Yeah ha….enjoy my friend 🙂
I really like going on your “dates” with you! Sounds like a really good series and 4.5 stars! So glad you are enjoying these 🙂
I am glad you tagged along and yes..this was delicious!

Honestly, I would buy these books for the covers alone! Yeehaw! The story sounds like a good one, too. Thanks for the review!
Oh I hope you read them all Sharlene they are so good!
Cowboys make good romance novel heroes!
They truly do
I LOVE this story!!! Bell is the kind of heroine I love to read about – super smart that takes a special guy to notice. I’m totally hunting this down!!!! Thanks for killing my TBR again! 😀
I pulled another “evil-move” (twice this week for me) – it was still available in Edelweiss… tee, hee…. so bad of me!!!!
Good..this series is sooooooooooo good.
I’ve had my eye on this series since your first review and this one really catches my attention! You are slowly but surely turning me into a cowboy fan!
Glad you are enjoying the series. Happy reading.
Thanks Sherry, they make me smile every time

Is this like that Nicolas Sparks book minus the dying? LOL
Romantic relationships that has a rich history is always an interesting story to follow. The eventual reunion amps things up. Happy Friday!
Lol..no but there is no death.

Ah… another book where I wonder where the heck all these cowboys could be hiding. I actually rarely read a cowboy romance, but you have me thinking I may have to pick this one up. Nice heat level… 😉
If I weren’t married o would be looking 🙂
Okay, the consensus seems to be that this book rocks. I guess I need to me these Montana cowboys.
Yes….you must read these 🙂
Heartwarming , indeed! I love that they met before and now have a reunion romance opportunity.
Agreed it added a nice element
Yay! You know I also love the Bowden brothers. This book was awesome! Great review, Kim. 🙂

Bell sounds like a character I’d really like to read about. And heck, I love a slow building romance, it makes it feel a bit more real 🙂
I do too, but do enjoy both
Ah, cowboys – every woman’s Achilles’ heel, lol :))) I will make time to meet all these wonderful men in this series, they all sounds positively dashing. Fabulous review, Kimba. Have a lovely weekend!

Lovely review as always! Have a wonderful weekend!
Yes Ali and this series is the perfect one to pick up.
There is just something about the word COWBOY that makes me stop and look. 🙂 I love western romances. I am so behind in this series as I have the first one but not read it yet…lol.

Hubba Hubba is right Debbie, this series is a blast to read.
Oh a cowboy book! It’s been soooooooooo long! I need to read more of them!

I do love a “romance laced with banter,” and put that all under some Montana skies….and you have a winner! Thanks for sharing.
This series has been such fun Laurel!
Quinn's Book Nook
I read When It’s Right a bit ago, and while I liked it, I wasn’t completely in love either. but, I have to say I’m really curious about this one. I think I’m going to have to give it a try.
I am sorry to hear that Quinn, this series has made me smile 🙂
YAY! This just came in the mail yesterday, I can’t wait to read it Kim! I still need to read the earlier books in the series as well, but I have a feeling I’m going to become one of Dane’s Dames in no time:)
This series has been so darn good Jenny..enjoy!
