From Publisher’s Site:

Elly Cody, the only daughter of Wyoming’s most powerful ranching family, set her sights on being a champion barrel racer long ago. Right about the time Will Jackson set his sights on Elly! Years away from Markton has dulled none of her appeal, and seeing the beautiful cowgirl again is like a one-two punch. He still wants her. Badly.

The tide has turned for Elly. Will the boy has turned into Will the man—and now he’s the one making her heart beat triple time. But why is he back in town? And what the heck is he doing working for her brother?

When Elly finds out Will was hired to unearth a secret that’s probably better off staying buried, she realizes it’s time for a confrontation. Is he going to finish the job he’s been hired to do? Or lose his chance with the only woman he’s ever loved…?

My Review:

Elly: Cowgirl Bride is the fifth book in the Harlequin series Codys: First Family of Rodeo.  Each book in this series has been written by a different author.  Each book is a wonderful stand alone, and the authors have done a wonderful job of working together to maintain a continuity that makes this family very realistic.  I have been looking forward to Elly’s story since she was first introduced in Walker’s book.  It’s tough enough to be the youngest and the only girl in a family of boys, but it is worse when your brothers are cowboys.  But Elly doesn’t let her stop her.  I love her strong will, and willingness to stand up to her brothers.  Through the entire series I have been cheering Elly on to make it the National Finals Rodeo to try for the National Champion title.  In this book, Elly discoveres that there are somethings out there that are more worthy of her hard work than barrel racing.  Will is just perfect for Elly.  He understands what it means to deal with the Cody men, and is not afraid to stand up and say he wants Elly.

I am giving Elly: Cowgirl Bride a 4 horse shoe rating!
