First Kisses---Her Mule Hollow Cowboy by Debra Clopton

My review today is on the third story in the First Kisses novella, Her Mule Hollow Cowboy. I love all the Mule Hollow stories and of course this one is no exception. It is well written, funny and yet touches your heart. I love her characters especially the cowboys, being from Nebraska you just have to love cowboys. I enjoy the way she weaves faith throughout the story like a tapestry. You will lose your heart to this story.

Maddie Rose has grown up in foster care after she was abandon as a child. When her boss died and left her a fourth of the ranch she has an overwhelming need to justify her position. The three cowboys that also own the ranch consider her like a little sister but have found out that she will not be coddled. Maggie is trying to load a two thousand pound bull when he decides he doesn't want to be loaded and slams against the tail gate and sends her flying. Buford would have stomped her if not for the cowboy who showed up just in time and saved her.

Famous Bull Rider Cliff Masterson arrives just in time to rescue the tiny little cowgirl from the massive bull. Maggie recognized him as one of the other owner's twin brother. He helps her up and tries to help her but she wants no part of him. Finally he helps her load the bull and takes it to the sale.
Cliff chews his brother and the other partners for allowing her to load the bull. They share with him that she got the short straw and she insists on doing her share of the chores.

Cliff is drawn to the beauty and desires to protect her but she wants no part of him. So starts the journey of two lonely broken people trying to find their way in a crazy world. God has a plan and as they watch it enfold they draw together with the help of the matchmaking posse. A great love story.
