I have been waiting for Jewel and Heath’s story since book one and boy howdy it did not disappoint. With one party already in full crush mode and the other party pretty much oblivious at first, it makes for some interesting tension in close quarters. But whew – once Heath figures things out he’s a man on mission. And since some of that mission involves sizzling kisses, you know I’m on board! I don’t think I will ever tire of the Cades & Lovelands and their ever-expanding clan. More, please, for infinity! More swoony cowboys, more strong women, more toecurling kisses, and more sweet pictures of family loyalty and fierce love. (I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book)

It's like coming home again! Every time I open the latest book in Karen Rock's Rocky Mountain Cowboy's series, it's like being among family. The Cades have been warming out hearts for awhile now, and in the last couple of books, we're getting to know and love the Lovelands as well. Jewel and Heath are a joy to watch as they set out on that journey to forever. I loved the complexity of their situation, and getting to catch up with news from how our favorite past couples are doing. Great characters, compelling drama and a sweet happily ever after ... loved Jewel & Heath! Jewel Cade doesn't want much in life. She wants the title of Range Boss on her family ranch, and she wants Heath Loveland! Two seemingly impossible dreams. Getting her brother James to give up one iota of control is looking pretty unlikely, and the fact that she's crushing on the enemy isn't going to endear her to the family. Heath has the world set out in front of him, but isn't so sure anymore if he's doing the things he does because he wants to or because it's easier than rocking the boat by admitting he wants something different. He still carries the scars of the world in his heart from hard times with his Mama, but one day soon he's going to have to pull himself out from under all of that baggage to let himself have the life he secretly dreams of.

Winning the Cowboys heart Since I read the first book in the series and then ones after that I have looked forward to Jewel’s story. This book did not disappoint. I did enjoy her story. She is definitely a great ranch hand. Better than some of her brothers. With being Heath story as well, I just loved his character. He does a lot of singing at the local hangout. Even though he does the singing gigs he is a great worker on the ranch also. So Heath and Jewel end up working together on the ranch. Only one problem, he is already engaged. I am enjoying this series. They can be read as a stand alone but I recommend the whole series, they are all great. I received an complimentary copy of the book from Prism book tours. I was not required to write an positive review. This is my own opinion.

Jewel is a tough, no-nonsense, get it done kind of cowgirl and proud of it! I reckon she could stare down a bull with just half of her spirit and gumption. Jewel keeps her compassion and insecurities on lockdown beneath her brash, tough gal exterior but I love the way her mama encourages her to embrace her whole self. Heath is literally a handsome singing cowboy, swoony! His greatest fault is his aversion to the word and concept of "no." Over the years, Heath has become an extreme peacemaker and habitual people-pleaser. Although I admit to wanting to shake him a time or two, he's just too nice to stay mad at even when he bungles it all up. This is a great book for readers who enjoy clean romance, big families, ranching, music, and happily ever afters. Although I'm sure the previous books in this series are equally enjoyable, this story can be read independently and I definitely recommend it! I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher and was under no obligation to post a review. The opinions expressed are my own.

What a great story! This book is part of a series, yet I had no trouble jumping in and understanding some of the backstory between the two main families that was established in previous novels. I really liked Heath and Jewel and wanted things to work out for them. They had such great chemistry and even as they tried to avoid their attraction to each other, it always ended up pulling them together! Heath’s inability to cut things off with his longtime girlfriend/fiancée had me shaking my head for a good portion of the book. This woman was so obviously wrong for him and not a nice person! I was glad when Heath finally figured out how to stand up for himself, instead of trying to keep everyone happy. I really liked this story and hope to read future books in this series. (4.5 stars) I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.

Winning the Cowboy's Heart is the fifth in the Rocky Mountain Cowboys series but can also be read as a stand alone novel. This is a story of learning to overcome the past and embrace the future. Jewel is a tough as nails cowgirl who is trying to prove she is the best person to be range boss on the Cade ranch. Heath has always been the peace keeper in the Loveland family and has constantly put what he wants on the back burner. Although the feud is still somewhat going on because of a pending lawsuit, Jewel is recruited to help Heath with the Loveland cattle drive. Jewel has secretly had a crush on Heath for sometime but working together, they both realize their feelings are evolving and they are growing closer together. There are problems standing in their way of becoming a couple, such as Heath is still engaged to his high school sweetheart and the lawsuit is still causing a rift. This is a wonderfully written story that has the characters' relationship progressing in a realistic, non-hurried fashion. The characters are realistic and their problems and issues are relatable. A truly heartwarming cowboy love story. I was provided an arc from the publisher but all thoughts and feelings are my own.

Winning the Cowboy’s Heart is the newest and fifth release from Karen Rock’s Rocky Mountain Cowboys series. I have read and enjoyed a few others in the series and this one does not disappoint. Jewell wants to prove that she is the best to be the range boss at the Cade Ranch. Before doing so, she has to go on a cattle drive through the state of Colorado with Heath. As in, Heath from the family that her family has an ongoing feud with. The two “enemies” have a mutual attraction but have to keep their hearts guarded. I loved Winning the Cowboy’s Heart. Heath and Jewell were fun together. The chemistry between the two was undeniable. I never knew what would happen with them and had to keep turning the pages to find out. I am giving Winning the Cowboy’s Heart four and a half stars. I highly recommend it for readers who love a well written, clean and heartwarming romance. I received this book from the publisher. This review is 100% my own hones opinion.

"Winning the Cowboy's Heart" is a Romeo and Juliet style cowboy romance. If you have been following the Rocky Mountain cowboys series, you know that the Lovelands and Cades have been involved in a centuries long dispute (think The Hatfields/McCoys). Now, things are changing. In the previous book (and recapped in this one), we learn that the events that started the disputes were based on incorrect information and that the families have been feuding over a misunderstanding. Their families have also reluctantly joined (on the children's parts) when Joy Cade and Boyd Loveland got married. As Joy and Boyd head out on their honeymoon, they are facing problems at the Lovelands ranch. Ever since the easement to the river was revoked from the Lovelands, ranching has been difficult. They have filed a lawsuit for damages against the Cades, but in the meantime, they are struggling to keep their ranch afloat. To avoid Joy and Boyd cancelling their honeymoon, Jewel Cade reluctantly agrees to help Heath Loveland and the rest of the Loveland clan with their cattle for the summer, until Cole's arm heals and/or Boyd returns. Jewel has been suffering from extreme sexism across the board. She is more than capable to be the Cade range boss, but her brother stubbornly denies it and makes her jump through hoops. He has said he'd make his decision by summer's end. She's also coming up against it with the general community and has been forced onto the committee of women to plan a flowery gala. Jewel struggles to be accepted and valued for who she is and not discounted because of her gender. Heath loves his music and performing at gigs. He knows he will soon have to give it up, when he marries his high school girlfriend, Kelsey. Once they get married, he will take over her father's business and knows he will have to fit the mold she has created for him. They have been together for so long, sometimes he is not even sure what he sees in her. Told in alternating points of view as Jewel and Heath spend a lot of time together, we watch their relationship and attraction grow. They are fighting not only their own life desires/goals, but also their family rivalry when they consider being together. A big theme of the book is also finding yourself and defining who you want to be outside of any relationships before letting a significant other compliment your life. "Falling in love isn't really falling, it's more like two people bending until they meet in the middle." Overall, I really enjoyed this installment into the Rocky Mountain Cowboys series. Heath and Jewel were a great, complimentary couple. I do wish more of the sexism against Jewel had been dealt with in a harder manner, but she does make personal gains and learn more about past situations that help her to heal. Regardless, she's a strong and brilliant woman, and she deserves bosses and a man (if she wants one) who respect her. I love how she knows that and keeps her eyes on her goals. Heath also goes through a lot of healing and self-recognition that bring some extra elements of growth to the story. Together, they are an amazing couple. Notably, as a heartwarming book, you won't find more than a kiss in the book- but boy, were there some kisses in this book! I highly recommend for people who like cowboy romances- this is a great (stand-alone) installment in a really fun series. Please note that I received an ARC from the author. All opinions are my own.
