CAPTIVATED BY THE COWGIRL by Jody Hedlund, Reviewed by Paula Shreckhise #ReleaseDay



I am enjoying these sizzling cowgirl stories from FairPlay, Colorado. This one has a very unique hero. He is a royal in hiding, which makes for a captivating story. Felicity Courtney is the one sister left to run the boardinghouse and has taken pity on an elderly couple with an invalid husband. As she cares for the Kellers, she works herself into exhaustion. She seeks help to get the chores done. 

Philip takes it upon himself to interview and reject possible men for the job. When a bad snowstorm lands him at the boardinghouse, he pitches in. All the while hiding from his past. 

Danger and excitement follow as Philip and Felicity grow closer together even as they try to deny their attraction. They are both very determined people.

This was a great ending to a fun series with a promise of another related series to come!

BackCover Blurb:
Now that her sisters are both married, Felicity Courtney manages the Courtney Boardinghouse alone. After nearly collapsing from exhaustion while caring for an invalid man and his wife who are staying at the boardinghouse, Felicity posts an advertisement for a hired hand.

Philip Berg, a prince in disguise, is hiding in Fairplay while attempting to stay one step ahead of an assassin. When the spirited Felicity Courtney tacks up a notice that she is hiring help, he offers to do the job as he is unable to leave her in such distress. Although he knows his presence could pose danger and that he needs to move on from Fairplay, he can’t tear himself away.

Felicity has no intention of employing the handsome but exasperating Philip Berg, but when an early winter storm hits, she finds herself battling the elements and is grateful for his assistance. Love begins to blossom, but secret revelations and encroaching peril threaten to tear them apart forever.
