Warmhearted and wonderful… Kentucky Cowboy is a keeper.
–Bestselling Author Joanne Rock
Professional bull rider Judd Romeo is a contender for the world title. He defies death for a living. But now he must deal with the death of his mother by settling her estate. Returning home to Kentucky, the PBR cowboy runs smack dab into the arms of his high school sweetheart, a woman he’s never forgotten.
Veterinarian Mandy Sullivan learned early on that risk-takers are trouble. Having custody of her sister’s child, she works hard to be both mother and father to the abandoned girl. When trouble shows up next door, Mandy discovers she can’t avoid her former beau. Will she take a second chance and risk her heart this time?
Amazon Review: “Ms. Scarbrough must either be a die hard fan of bull riding or did a lot of research of the sport of bull riding and interviews with bull riders because she really relates to the passion these young men have. When Judd rides for the world championship is most certainly based on the winning ride of Justin McBride at the Vegas finals a few years ago. Gutsy and heart stopping.”
Reviews and Awards
“Kentucky Cowboy was a wonderful, heartfelt western romance that I really enjoyed reading. It was a classic tale about tragedy, despair, love and second chances. Judd was my type of cowboy – he was very tough when needed to be, compassionate and downright gorgeous. There was no woman who could resist his alluring southern charm, not even Mandy. No matter how hard she tried to fight it, the desire was still strong between them. The plot moved at an excellent pace while showing the difficult process of rediscovery and forgiveness. Readers, you can’t go wrong with Kentucky Cowboy!” Reviewed by Nikita Steele, Joyfully Reviewed
“Excellent tension, conflict. The hero’s voice is cowboy perfect.” Timna Gainey, contest judge
“An authentic cowboy in all his appealing glory…Jan Scarbrough pens a hero to fall in love with!” – Bestselling Author Joanne Rock
“Ms. Jan Scarbrough has done an exceptional job of telling this story. Her two main characters were vibrant, believable individuals who never got over that high school attraction. Each of them was a success in life, but together, even though the sensuality was dynamic, they were much like oil and water. The conflicts made the love stand out so much more.” – Reviewer: Brenda Talley
“Jan Scarbrough did an excellent job with these two characters. She wrote in a steady pace and smooth flow, and brought the characters to life in my mind. I look forward to reading the other books in the Bluegrass Reunion Series.” Rated 4 Delightful Divas by Melissa!
A second chance at love and a second chance at family. Sweet, romantic, funny and sexy, I was entertained from beginning to end. Judd has a soft spot that drew me in from the start. He and Mandy made a great couple, and along with her niece Georgia, a perfect family. Jen’s Reading Obsession
Bluegrass Reunion Series romances are about second chances:
- Kentucky Cowboy — Bull rider/veterinarian — She dumped him in high school, because he was a risk-taker.
- Kentucky Woman — Banker/exercise rider — She loved him when she was a teenager, but they never connected.
- Kentucky Flame — American Saddlebred Horse trainers — She had his baby, but he left not knowing the truth.
- Kentucky Groom — Teacher/software designer and Saddlebred groom — She can’t afford to fall in love with a lowly groom.
- Kentucky Bride — American Saddlebred Horse trainer/CEO — She rejected him once, but he’s willing to try again.
- Kentucky Heat — Country music singer/artist — She doesn’t need to take on another project, but he won’t take no for an answer. (Sequel to Kentucky Bride.)
- Kentucky Rain — Divorced single mom/security consultant — She has responsibilities to her daughter and herself, not to the handsome guy next door. (Mentions characters from Kentucky Cowboy.)
- Kentucky Blue Bloods—Kentucky horse breeder/British thoroughbred breeder and owner—She wants to save the family horse farm, but he has other ideas.
Each romance in the Bluegrass Reunion series stands alone, yet all books have a similar theme: the importance of family and second chances. All books are set in Kentucky. When appropriate, I add a few horses in the plot for good measure.
