It’s been a while since I read Alissa Callen, and have always enjoyed her books. Her Wildflower Ranch series is one of my favorites that I’ve revisited many a time.

“A Texas Christmas Wish” has the charm of Alissa’s writing as she brings corporate lawyer Mason Firth to Aggie Harper’s small town of warmth, tinsel and loving citizens. A search for answers from his mother’s past opens a path of love and romance for Mason, as he spends time with Aggie. 

Aggie and Mason make a beautiful couple and with the support of the small town of family and friends, “A Texas Christmas Wish” is heartwarming read, perfect for the beginning of the holiday season.

Missed reading Alissa Callen! She’s one of those writers with a skill to captivate readers with her cowboy stories so filled with warmth and love, and down to earth characters. Her Wild Flower Ranch Series is one of my favorites and her very first books that have charmed me.

And it is so very nice to go back to the Wild Flower Ranch Series, Montana and Peta Dixon! A total cowgirl and with ranching her breath, there’s nothing that she cannot not do as a rancher. But as a woman, she stays far away from dresses and heels! Coming back home from a vacation with her sister to a hot and judgmental temporary foreman running her ranch was not on her agenda and neither was the spark of attraction.

Self-made rancher millionaire Garrett Ross was only honoring a favor for his mentor and has no intention of following orders from his boss lady. But the genuine rancher that Peta is captivates Garrett and the sparks pretty soon become fireworks. I’ve always wondered the guy who would hold Peta’s heart and Garrett fits perfectly.

“His Christmas Cowgirl” is a charming and heartwarming love story not to be missed. It’s wonderful revisiting previous characters and getting a glimpse of their lives as Alissa Callen gives Peta her HEA with Garrett.

Alissa Callen’s new series “Montana Born Rodeo” is another series born out of Montana, the big-hearted cowboys and their stories as they lasso in the women of their dreams. Big skies, people with large hearts, warmth and love in big doses, these stories are just that – warm, lovable and charming. And Alissa Callen does what she’s good at – writing captivating love stories that go straight to the heart.

Kendall Dixon has lived her entire life in Marietta, and she has realized that she’s in a good place. With her dreams of becoming a landscaper on the back burner, she doesn’t let family obligations deter her dreams of becoming one, albeit a degree and she thrives on determination and grit to make her dream come true. With things falling into place, if only her heart would stop wanting that one cowboy who had left her body and taken her heart forever. But looks like fate has a different story lined up for Dell as circumstances bring back her lost cowboy Brent Ashton back to Marietta.

Brent had always loved and will love Kendall. Not wanting to hold back Kendall from her dreams and aspirations, circumstances and Brent make a decision to leave Marietta. But now with his mother’s health at stake, Brent comes back to take care of her and realizes that his heart still beats for Kendall. As he works to fix the ranch and his homestead, he hopes to mend the fences of his lost love and Kendall is more than willing to give her cowboy a second chance.

Short, sweet and utterly charming, Alissa Callen weaves another story of love, romance and second chances, as she brings the characters of Marietta together. It’s nice reading a series, yet not having to read them in a sequence. With interesting family dynamics and supporting characters, “Hold Me Cowboy” is a nice reading pleasure.

Alissa Callen’s Wildflower Ranch Series has become one of my favorites in recent times, and I’m so in love with these cowboys and cowgirls as well as Alissa Callen. Each book in the series is a charming love story under the big skies of Montana, people with big hearts, warm relationships and immense support and love.

And into this heartwarming land comes “His Outback Cowgirl” Bridie Willis, Zane’s stepsister. Filled with grief over her father’s death and having no home in the outback anymore, Bridie is at a crossroad in her life. Spending time with her recently found family, all she wants to do is hone her love for photography and put a closure to her grief.

Life has dealt Ethan Morgan a few hard blows that had molded him into what he is today, a warm and caring man, open with his love, and his unconditional support for his family. Seeing Bridie stirs feelings that have been buried, yet he feels inadequate for her. Ethan is one of Alissa Callen’s perfect heroes, humble with his imperfections. I loved him for the way he’s tuned into Bridie’s sadness, her desires and her insecurities. I just loved him!!!!

Too short for my satisfaction and yet leaving me with so much happiness and tingles 😉 “His Outback Cowgirl” is another feather in Alissa Callen’s series. There’s no dearth of sentiments and emotions, and you can’t help but fall in love with Ethan and Bridie. Now all Bridie has to do is trust her heart with Ethan and Ethan needs to trust his feelings for Bridie.

Simply beautiful and captivating!!!!

Okay…am now totally smitten by the Wildflower Ranch Series by Alissa Callen, and this is only my second read of hers. Under the big skies of Montana, Alissa Callen packs quite an intoxicating punch of charm and charisma. Be it her wonderful characters, with such big hearts and care, or the story itself seeped in emotions of love and trust.

Speech therapist Trinity Redfern is running a summer program for youngsters, and Finn Nash is one of her favorites, along with his father Zane Nash. With a heart as big as the Montana sky, Trinity is one of the most lovable characters I have come across. Warm, friendly, caring and yet assertive is how she keeps her students in line, but when it comes to her personal Mr. Right, he seems to be just elusive to her. And Mr. Wrong just doesn’t seem to leave her alone.

The reserved and sexy Zane Nash is thrown a curve ball, when he becomes an instant father to Finn, a responsibility he takes seriously as running his successful ranch. But Finn and Zane have a lot to catch up on, as five-year-old Finn is not very talkative and has become withdrawn. Zane starts relying more and more on Trinity, as Finn starts opening himself to Trinity, little realizing that opening his heart would also be a balm to his hurting heart and can be very fulfilling.

All I can say is Alissa Callen has really, really put her heart and soul in creating Zane and Trinity. Simple, warm, caring and just two beautiful people, trying to sort the ripples of emotion they create with each other, and find the trust and confidence to be with each other.

Loaded in sentiment, brimming with some painful yet a sweet past, with surprises and twists, and visiting with some of the charismatic Montana friends, “Her Big Sky Cowboy” is just as precious as “Her Mistletoe Cowboy”.

And now it’s time for me to catch up with the other sexy cowboys and their intended sassy women that Alissa has created, including Payton and Cordell (Cherish Me, Cowboy, Wildflower Ranch 1). I sure hope there are more love stories coming to the wonderful inmates of the Wildflower Ranch Series.
