Falling for a Cowboy
(Rocky Mountain Cowboys #2)
by Karen Rock
Paperback & ebook, 368 pages
January 1st 2018 by Harlequin Heartwarming
Doesn’t he get that she’s blind?
Barrel racer Amberley James wants to join the premier rodeo circuit more than anything, but she faces the ultimate hurdle when she loses her eyesight to a rare genetic condition. All she’d ever wanted seems out of reach. Giving up is the only option…until her best friend and local hero Jared Cade steps in. The last thing she wants is Jared’s help. But his persistence at encouraging her to get back in the saddle is ridiculously annoying. And undeniably inspiring…
I enjoyed getting to know the Cade family in Christmas at Cade Ranch (now I need to go back and read the prequel to this series!), and am thrilled to get more of the man who was described as wrapped in plastic.
Jared Cade’s charmed life is about to catch up with him when his best friend faces the most difficult challenge of her life—losing her sight. Amberley James knows more about Jared than any other woman. After all, their friendship began as teenagers and over the years they’ve pushed each other to win.
In Falling for a Cowboy, Karen Rock peels back the layers of fear and helplessness that come from Amberley’s loss of sight. She also shows readers the true meaning of friendship—encouragement, and support when one is at their lowest point, standing ready to do anything to assist, pushing the right buttons to motivate from fear, and calling each other out when necessary.
With the Cade-Loveland feud adding plenty of drama to the family dynamics (off topic, but I vote for a series with the Loveland family next), can Jared discover what some of his family already knows? That he and Amberley are meant for each other?

Christmas at Cade Ranch
(Rocky Mountain Cowboys #1)
by Karen Rock
November 7th 2017 by Harlequin Heartwarming
The Christmas they never had.
James Cade has one priority: keep the family ranch running smoothly in the wake of his younger brother’s death. With Jesse’s ex, Sofia Gallardo, and her young son, Javi, stranded at Cade Ranch over Christmas, this task just got a lot harder. The longer Sofia and Javi stay, the harder it is to imagine the ranch without them. James couldn’t save his brother from his inner demons, but he can give his nephew a secure future. Maybe more—if he can figure out how to trust Sofia, and stop feeling like he’s betraying Jesse. Because trying to stop thinking about beautiful, determined Sofia is impossible.
About the Author
In a quest to provide her ELA students with quality reading material, educator Karen Rock read everything out there and couldn’t wait to add her voice to the genre. In addition to her work as a Young Adult romance novelist, she’s now an author for Harlequin’s Heartwarming line and thrilled to pen stories that moms can share with their teenage daughters. She’s loved Harlequin books since she spent summers going through her grandmother’s Presents books that she passed along in paper grocery bags each year. As half of the writing duo J.K. Rock, Karen also pens young adult romance. When she’s not busy writing, Karen enjoys scouring estate sales for vintage books, cooking her grandmother’s family recipes, reinventing her gardens to suit her moods and occasionally rescuing local wildlife from neighborhood cats. She lives in the Adirondack Mountain region with her husband, her very appreciated beta-reader daughter, and two Cavalier King cocker spaniels, who have yet to understand the concept of “fetch” though they know a lot about love. For more information about Karen’s upcoming books, check out her website.

FALLING FOR A COWBOY is a great book and I highly recommend it to everyone. Like you, I am loving getting to know the Cade family and can’t wait to find out more about the others as well as more about those in the first two books of this series.
Sounds like a great book in a great series. Thanks for introducing me to a new author.
