Synopsis: Will Gold Valley’s most honorable cowboy finally claim the woman he’s always wanted?For as long as brooding cowboy Ryder Daniels has known Sammy Marshall, she has been his sunshine. Her free spirit and bright smile saved him after the devastating loss of his parents and gave him the strength to care for his orphaned family. Only Ryder knows how vulnerable Sammy is, so he’s kept his attraction for his best friend under wraps for years. But what Sammy’s asking for now might be a step too far…
Something has been missing from Sammy’s life, and she thinks she knows what it is. Deciding she wants a baby is easy; realizing she wants her best friend to be the father is…complicated. Especially when a new heat between them sparks to life! When Sammy discovers she’s pregnant, Ryder makes it clear he wants it all. But having suffered the fallout of her parents’ disastrous relationship, Sammy is wary of letting Ryder too close. This cowboy will have to prove he’s proposing out of more than just honor… (Synopsis from Goodreads)
My Thoughts: An awkward proposal turns into something more, that is some of what you get with The Hero of Hope Springs. This was a lot of fun to read. It was very cute, sexy, and a little zany with this plan that Sammy came up with.
I'll just say, I love a brooding cowboy. Ryder Daniels is a winner. Sammy is more of a free spirit. They fit very well together and compliment each other.
I couldn't believe Sammy's plan when she announced it. I mean, that is one way to get a baby. Ryder has been attracted to her for years and sees this as his way of finally getting the girl, although it takes him more convincing then he first thought.
This was very sweet to read. I definitely enjoyed my time reading this book. I have not read all the books in the series, but this has made me want to. If Cowboy Romances are your thing, I'd definitely recommend giving this one a read.
