This short story collection was a perfect addition to my reading list. Each story was a quick and delightful read. I have a soft spot for stories with cowboys and those set in the old west. And this collection didn’t disappoint. This anthology is a perfect addition to a weekend retreat.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was such a sweet and fun little anthology! It was a perfect weekend “getaway” read. At just under five hundred pages collectively, it was easy to devour quickly for an anthology. A trait that I definitely loved for an anthology. Each author was a completely new author to me so it was quite nice to get to know some new ones to add to my TBR list for the future.

Each story is different but all have the same common concept… Hot and steamy cowboys, and there really wasn’t a single one that I didn’t fall for. Strap in ladies because this is going to be one fun read! Each of the stories are listed below, but for all the juicy details you will have to one-click and read all those for yourself! Happy reading!

Cowboy: Claimed is a wonderful Anthology by six talented authors. These authors all have different styles and approaches to writing, and each story is unique and individual- but they all have the same theme as inspiration for each of their stories- and that is, sexy cowboys.
I went into this book not really knowing what to expect, because all six of these authors are new-to-me, but I have come out the other side, totally impressed and entertained. All the stories are superbly done- quite engrossing, with wonderful plotting, well developed characters- and all were entirely enjoyable. I am always excited when I get to explore the work of authors I’ve never read before, especially wen I love what I find and can add their work to my TBR.
The Anthology contains:

Rescue Love By: Melissa Keir.

Snow Bird Springs: TROY By: Cheryl Gorman

Upstaging the Cowboy By: Leslie P. Garcia

Cowboy Kind of Forgiveness By: Becca Turner

Reverence By: Lyssa Layne

Cowboy Proud By: D’Ann Lindun

Buckle up and be prepared for an enjoyable ride- where you will discover some drama, suspense, danger, heartache, emotion, second chances, new beginnings, forgiveness, love, loss, romance, light-hearted and tender moments, some action, and surprises….And you will enjoy, Every. Single. Minute!
I really recommend this Anthology- you won’t regret buying it! It is worth every cent of the purchase price- six books in one…. #winning!

Thank you to all the contributing authors!

Cowboy: Claimed Box Set is written by various authors, Rescue Love by Melissa Keir, ​Snow Bird Springs: Troy by Cheryl Gorman, Upstaging the Cowboy by Leslie P Garcia, Cowboy Kind of Forgiveness by Becca Turner, Reverence by Lyssa Layne, Cowboy Proud by D’Ann Lindun

This is a set of six books and six sexy romance stories that are quick and easy reads. I must say that there was not one story that I did not like and each and every author is just as good as the next. There are lots of emotions in each book that range from laughter to heart wrenching and some have a little mystery to them but each and everyone will have you intrigued and engrossed are definite page turners.

COWBOY: CLAIMED BY Various Authors – REVIEW BY Maura Harper

Cowboy: ClaimedCowboy: Claimed by Melissa Keir
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

CONFESSION: Western and/or Cowboy Romance are generally not my jam. I’m more of a contemporary romance reader because being from the Northeast I have preconceived notions about Westerns and Cowboys. Boy did this anthology prove me wrong.

These are all new to me authors and each weaves a tale that left me wanting more. From Musicians to Marines, Divas to Dogs, this anthology has a bit of it all. Some seem to be part of a much larger picture and others are a full novel in a short story.

Instead of highlighting passages, I found myself highlighting authors who I want to add to my ‘check this author out’ list. I look forward to reading more from these authors in the future.

5 out of 5 stars

The anthology Cowboy: Claimed is a wonderful set of stories that include cowboys and romance. I found myself not able to put them down for long once I started. I just had to know how they ended. They had my emotions going up and down as I read about how the main characters of each story interact with each other. Most find themselves thrown together by circumstance while others reconnect. They find that they have a desire to be with each other and their attraction to each other is undeniable. Will their feelings for each other lead to them getting an HEA? Read these stories to find out. There is heartbreaking moments in the stories as well as heartwarming ones. Sometimes forgiveness is needed to move on and other times just the main characters meeting is enough to start them down their path. I also loved reading about the additional characters that are introduced in each story. I love to read anthologies as I always get to discover new authors. All of these authors have created amazing and wonderful reads that I will not soon forget. I have only recently started reading more in the western genre and I find that it is quickly becoming a favorite of mine. Don’t miss out on this anthology. Highly recommended.

Rescue Love by Melissa Keir

Dogs, Danger, and a Cross-Country Trip….
Nothing has gone easy in Alexis Bandit’s life. On a trip to rescue mistreated puppies and drive them to their forever homes, she meets up with a tuxedo-clad cowboy on the run and offers him a ride.

Jason Fields thought he had it all—a beautiful fiancée, a loving family, and great job—until he overheard his future father-in-law talk about arranging his murder. Now he’s on the run, without money, a phone, or a credit card.
With a killer on their tail, four mischievous pups, and many miles of highway, what could go wrong?

Snow Bird Springs: TROY by Cheryl Gorman

Artist Alexandra “Alex” Kent has lost her creative mojo and is desperate to get it back. Upon learning of the legend of Snow Bird Springs, Colorado, she arrives in town ready to do whatever is needed to find it again. The legend demands she sacrifice something of value in exchange for having her wish granted. But her most valued possession is her wounded heart, and she vows never to give it away again.

There is nothing Troy Slade loves more than ranching except maybe women as long as they aren’t interested in any long-term commitments. He has seen firsthand how love can tear a man’s life apart. But when he meets Alex, she touches a nerve he doesn’t want touched and makes him long for a family of his own. Because of his background, he doesn’t believe he is good enough. Can Alex sacrifice her heart for Troy’s love? Will Troy sacrifice the belief he isn’t good enough for Alex’s love and the family he has always wanted?


Can a former Marine and a Hollywood diva facing apocalyptic changes in their lives salvage new beginnings together?
When Stone Winters joined the Marines, he always meant to come home. A woman’s impossible dream kept him away so long that he doesn’t think there’s anything left—especially not when he meets Price Adams, a film star with another impossible dream. He just doesn’t think he’s up for that again.
Price Adams traded in a childhood on her grandparents’ ranch for Hollywood glitz in spite of being a teenage mother. Torn between the stardom she won and full-time custody of her daughter, she accepts one last role—in Cowboy Apocalypse, an inane movie about zombies being filmed on ranches around deep south Texas. Burned by men more times than she can remember, Price doesn’t want a man in her life—especially not one who looks down on her career and the courage she needs to let it all go.


For many, Christmas is a joyous time of year meant for families and friends to gather near. For Everly Thibodaux, it’s a time of tragedy and heartbreak. Her twin brother died before the holiday in a freak accident, leaving her alone and empty. Her brother’s best friend, the man she carried strong feelings for, witnessed the event that shattered both their worlds. All her anger falls on him for destroying her life.

Swift Scott’s life crumbled until he fell into a bottle to drown the pain of losing a friend and the misery he caused for the woman he loved. After two years of self-destruction, he pulls himself together and moves back to Swells, hoping for reconciliation and forgiveness from Everly. Except that Everly, like him, is stuck in a well of heartache and grief. He knows he can’t force her to love him or even tolerate his presence, but he’d settle for seeing her smile again, no matter the cost.
In a small town like Swells, they can’t avoid each other forever and circumstances draw them together once more. As the one person who truly understands her heartbreak, Swift can be the only man who helps Everly learn to love again.

REVERENCE by Lyssa Layne

Fresh out of college with a broken heart, Dax Lindsley is trying to find his path. When his brother, guitarist for the popular band Heart of the South, invites him to tag along on a quick vacation, he welcomes the opportunity to escape reality and clear his mind. What he finds is Stella Lindemann hiding from her own reality? The two have more in common than they realize but will they give each other a chance to figure that out?

COWBOY Proud by D’Ann Lindun

All Madeline Harper ever wanted was to escape the tight fences of Black Mountain, Colorado. Nothing would stop her from pursuing her goals–not a devoted boyfriend, or infant son. For the last five years Shan Ellis’ life has consisted of being a dad. He sacrificed everything for his son. College. A career. Girls. Now, the one woman he can’t forget is back in town. Can they overcome the mistakes of the past and find love again?
