And finding him a wife is a challenge eight-year-old Becky Jones takes seriously. Ex-rodeo cowboy Taggart Jones is adamant. No marriage. Been there. Done that.
Not even if Becky’s dream candidate is her beautiful, blonde teacher, Felicity Albright, who knows about barrettes, patching up scrapes, and hates carrots as much as his daughter. Taggart’s still not interested. Much.
What’s a daughter to do? Becky’s nothing if not ingenious, and she’s determined to convince a stubborn Taggart and a bemused Felicity that they really have met their match.

Best friends Becky and Susannah were stalking their prey with stealth, intensity… and giggles.
Becky was, quite frankly, exhausted taking care of her dad. She needed a mom to ride herd on her dad. She loved him to pieces, but he needed a wife. And Becky had the perfect choice all picked out – her teacher, Felicity. After all anyone who knows that carrots are the most disgusting thing in the world just has to become her mom… really.
Taggart’s done the marriage thing, got the mug, the tee shirt and thankfully the daughter to prove it. The only good thing to come out of that union was the daughter, but man, Becky was one stubborn little girl determined to find him a wife. No thanks, no really, no thanks. But when it comes to the new teacher in town, well, Felicity did grab his attention even if he tried to hide it.
The Cowboy and The Kid is simply one of those charming, feels good, enjoyable romances where you’re pulling for the couple to get together from the start. Becky is adorable… and bull headed stubborn in her determination to bring her father and Felicity together. Two slightly stubborn adults are no match for a determined eight year old matchmaker.
If you’re in the mood for a fun, charming romance without high drama and with believable characters… then this story, and this series is perfect for you. I enjoyed my time in this world and would definitely recommend the series.
