The wealthiest of enemies may seduce the ranch right out from under her!
Cassidy Morgan wasn't raised a crybaby. So when her father dies and leaves the family ranch vulnerable to takeover by an Okie gazillionaire with a grudge, she doesn't shed a tear—she fights back.
But Chance Barron, the son of said gazillionaire, is a too-sexy adversary. In fact, it isn't until Cassidy falls head over heels for the sexy cowboy-hat-wearing attorney that she even finds out he's the enemy. Now she needs a plucky plan to save her birthright. But Chance has another trick up his sleeve, putting family loyalties—and passion—to the ultimate test.

I was lucky enough to get a review copy from Harlequin through NetGalley. I've been a fan of Silver James for years and was super excited to get a chance to read her very first Harlequin Desire early.
Let me just say that Ms. James had me crying within the first chapter and had me laughing very soon after. I loved Cassidy Morgan from the very beginning. She is a strong, feisty and spunky character. Cassidy and Chance actually meet for the first time in Chicago, right as she discovers her father has passed away. Chance Barron is son of the mega-gazillionaire Cyrus Barron and is really put between a rock and a hard place when dealing with Cassie thanks to his father's vendetta against Cassidy's father.
I really loved Chance. I think he should have been honest with Cassie a bit sooner, but knew his heart was really in the right place, so I gave him a pass. I loved the chemistry between Chance and Cassie from the very beginning. I really felt like Chance helped Cassie finally see how strong she really was. I felt her strength from the beginning, but her determination and grit really didn't come out until after she met Chance.
Cowgirls Don't Cry is the first book in the Red Dirt Royalty series and I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the stories in this series. I'm hoping with all my heart that Cyrus Barron gets his in each and every story, as he is the perfect villain you love to hate. Well done Ms. James.
