There’s nothing like a cowboy to stir a lady’s imagination—and nobody can do it better than New York Times bestselling author Jodi Thomas.
AVAILABLE DIGITALLY FOR THE FIRST TIME
It’s Cooper Adams’s thirtieth birthday and his three older sisters have arrived at his Dallas ranch stanchly determined to find their rough-hewn cowboy brother a wife. Cooper isn’t necessarily opposed to marriage, he just figures he’s old enough to make his own decisions. There’s just one problem. He doesn’t know much about the ways of women, seeming a heck of lot more complicated than tending to a ranch.
Then one day at the general store, his spots Mary Woodburn. At first sight, she’s the nicest gift he could have received. She’s shy and gentle, sweetly receptive, and darn near irresistible. But she’s also a damn Yankee, the kind of woman Cooper never dreamed he’d find himself falling for. Now he can’t stop thinking about her. And differences aside, with proper tending, theirs could be a love story as big as Texas itself.
Includes a preview of Jodi Thomas’s latest Whispering Mountain novel, PROMISE ME TEXAS, coming November 5, 2013.
EASY ON THE HEART was originally published June 2004 in the mass market paperback anthology, HOW TO LASSO A COWBOY and then as a stand alone in September 2006 by Jove.
