Launch – Note from the Author

It’s here, book four in my Sweetheart Ranch series, HER COWBOY SWEETHEART! It seems like only yesterday I came up with the series idea while researching venues for my own upcoming wedding (was that really over three years ago?). Just goes to show you how long it can take from conception to completion. I have to say, while I’ve loved all four books, HER COWBOY SWEETHEART is perhaps my favorite. . .

Reading Excursions – Review

“This is very different from the other Heartwarming novels I’ve read – in a very good way. It is not a light-hearted read; instead it is a powerful, heart-tugging, emotionally engaging, honest, and beautiful tale of real life issues and real love. A love that puts what is best and needed overall, rather than wants and desires. . . . This is one read that will stick with readers for a while and perhaps make them examine their own relationships. This is perhaps one of the most emotional Heartwarming books I’ve read.”

Christy’s Cozy Corners – Review

“I enjoyed how the romance developed in Her Cowboy Sweetheart. The author brought conflict into the book for the characters as individuals and together. I love how they draw strength from each other.

This a very sweet and inspiring book, and I think you’ll enjoy it.”

Hearts & Scribbles – Excerpt

“How’s it going, Rico?” He used his pet name for Rickie.

Instantly, her son stopped fussing and lit up like a starburst. Arms and legs flailing, he babbled a string of nonsense syllables. Carly mentally translated. Hi, JD! I’m happy to see you. Please play with me.

JD removed his scuffed cowboy hat and plunked it down on Rickie’s head. “Can you hold onto this for me while I help your mama? I’d appreciate it.”

Rickie giggled and pulled on the sides of the hat, distorting its shape. JD didn’t appear to mind and, after cuffing the boy gently on the chin, he unlatched the gate.

Reading Is My SuperPower – Review

“Cathy McDavid delivers another sweet & swoony romance set at the Sweetheart Ranch. Engaging characters and compelling subplots immediately draw readers’ interest and keep it for the duration of the novel. Hombre the dog and toddler Rickie add notes of comedy and warmth to break up the more serious undertones that threaten JD and Carly’s budding romance, and you’ll quickly fall in love with both of them. Another great visit to the Sweetheart Ranch – ready for the next!”

Baroness’ Book Trove – Review

“Her Cowboy Sweetheart by Cathy McDavid is an excellent book that I was instantly transported into and not wanting to leave. I loved every minute of it. Ms. McDavid did a fantastic job on this book, and this series is becoming a favorite of mine. I love the little tidbits of some Spanish being spoken, and to the way, Carly was envisioned as a single mom. I am giving this book five stars and recommending it to anyone that reads romances.”

Andi’s Book Reviews – Review

“This story reminds us how best friends can make the best partners in life. Family and close friends are extremely important. And listen to those gut instincts. (I always talked about the importance of the Mama Gut when I was teaching.) It also reminds us that you can be strong and learn to trust again.

I do so love this series and am looking forward to more!”

Books and Zebras – Review

“I do love a good Harlequin Heartwarming story, and Cathy McDavid delivers a beautiful read that is wholesome, clean, entertaining and insightful. . . . I very much enjoyed reading Her Cowboy Sweetheart, and I’m ready to read another story with all the feels, just like this one. Romance readers will delight in this touching story of life’s triumphs, tragedies and the power of love.”

Jorie Loves A Story – Spotlight

Nicole’s Book Musings – Review

“I so love this series so much. These books are make you feel good romances. This book was no different. I could hardly put it down. . . . Trust me after you finish this book your heart is going to be happy sighing. Then throw in JD’s dog Hombre you have recipe for a great book. It’s a must read!”

Reviewing books plus more – Review

“I love books that deal with real-life illnesses. In Her Cowboy Sweetheart, JD has a balance disorder that affects his everyday life.

I have read a lot about the illness he has, and I am glad to see a character in a book that has it. There needs to be more awareness of it.”

Britt Reads Fiction – Review

“Her Cowboy Sweetheart is a great addition to the Sweetheart Ranch series, yet it is able to be read and enjoyed as a stand alone novel, too. I really liked the two main characters, JD and Carly. They both showed, time and again, throughout the novel that they would put the safety of others above what their heart desired.”

Peaceful Pastime – Review

“Her Cowboy Sweetheart is such a heartwarming and sweet novel that it was hard to stop reading it once I started. I quickly got caught up in the story of single mom, Carly Leightman who is raising her precious little boy, Rickie. . . . I thought the author penned an emotional story with likeable characters and I will definitely be reading more of her work. What I enjoyed most of all is that this is a clean romance that is suitable for readers of all ages.”

Kimber Li – Excerpt

“Yeah, but he could get hurt. Or one of the horses. I can’t let that happen.”

They turned simultaneously to leave, Carly pushing the stroller. Three steps later, JD unexpectedly swayed and knocked into her. The next instant, he moaned and pitched forward.

She caught his arm and instead of him face-planting on the ground, he dropped slowly to his hands and knees. Alarm shot through her.

“JD! JD! Are you okay?”

Cover Lover Book Review – Review

“I was absorbed into this story fairly quickly. The characters are engaging and interesting, and their dilemmas aren’t typical in romance. . . the story is realistic, potent, and deeply moving.”

EmpowerMoms – Review

“I laughed and got teary… lots of great emotions and events happening in this story! I can’t wait to read more in this series! Highly recommend for a fun, easy read.”

Heidi Reads… – Excerpt

A wave of nausea hit. No, he silently hollered. Not again!

“JD? Are you all right?” Carly’s voice sounded twenty feet away.

Concentrating on Hombre’s barking, he blindly reached for the nearest solid object to anchor himself. Finding one, he closed his eyes and counted his breaths. All kidding aside, meditation techniques did sometimes stave off an attack. And, they did today.

Inch by inch, the thick fog vanished. Little by little, the ground beneath his feet stabilized. Bit by bit, his stomach settled.

“Better?”

He opened his eyes and was surprised to find Carly’s face inches from his and his arm wrapped around her. Concern filled her expression as she studied him intently.

Hallie Reads – Review

“Visiting Sweetheart Ranch once again in Her Cowboy Sweetheart is a pleasure. The story between Carly and JD tends to be more serious and emotional than most I have read from Harlequin Heartwarming, yet Cathy McDavid makes sure it has some lightheartedness, too. Overall, the story’s elements work well to deliver a heartwarming read, and as I read, I found it to be an easy one to enjoy.”

#BlogTour #Giveaway – THE COWBOY’S CHRISTMAS BABY by Cathy McDavid

Launch – Note from the Author

ARE YOU IN THE HOLIDAY MOOD YET?

Hopefully, I can help you get your jingle on 🙂 Come join me on my blog tour for THE COWBOY’S CHRISTMAS BABY, book three in my series, The Sweetheart Ranch. . . . I promise you, my blog tour will be tons of fun. Besides sharing not only excerpts from the books, there’ll also be some fun holiday trivia and a giveaway at the end for one lucky winner. So, grab your tinsel and let’s get started!

—Cathy

Remembrancy – Review

The Cowboy’s Christmas Baby proves that relationships are difficult, and that compromise is necessary to sustain said relationship. . . . in the end, she realizes what’s most important to her and her own culpability in the situation.

Plus, there’s this big, handsome ex-bull rider whose four-month-old daughter has him wrapped around her teeny tiny fingers, and that is worth picking up this book to read about.”

Hallie Reads – Review

“Complicated and sweet, The Cowboy’s Christmas Baby is a contemporary romance perfect for this time of year. If you’re in need of a fun Christmas story, grab a copy of this book (especially if you’ve enjoyed other Sweetheart Ranch books)!”

It’s All About the Romance – Excerpt

Hearing a noise, she glanced over to see a man half hidden by the shadows and pushing a wheelbarrow into the horse barn from the opposite end of the aisle. She didn’t pay much attention, not until he drew closer.

She sensed more than saw him come to a stop, and she slowly turned to face him. The hairs on the back of her neck inexplicably rose.

Whatever words she’d been about to utter lodged in her throat as the man emerged from the shadows and his features took shape beneath the weathered cowboy hat he wore. A wild rush of shock and then alarm coursed through Jewel, and she involuntarily tightened her grip on Ava.

She couldn’t have been more stunned if she’d seen a ghost. Then again, she supposed she had, for Tanner Bridwell stood before her.

Britt Reads Fiction – Review

“My goodness!!! I have enjoyed this Sweetheart Ranch series a lot, but the author absolutely knocked one out of the park with this newest story! I love second chance romances and this one was especially wonderful. . . . This book was a joy to read from start to finish, and I recommend it even to those who have not read the first two books in the series. It can be read as a stand alone novel.”

The Power of Words – Review

The Cowboy’s Christmas Baby by Cathy McDavid is an enjoyable romance for any time of the year, but especially during the Christmas season. Those who have read the previous two books in this series will enjoy returning to Arizona’s Sweetheart Ranch, but this story easily stands alone.”

janicesbookreviews – Review

“I enjoyed this book. . . . I recommend reading this book. It is book three of a series but is a stand-alone. I love reading stories based on a ranch. I never lived on one but just fun to read about them.”

Kat’s Corner Books – Review

“This was my first visit to Sweetheart Ranch and I enjoyed the setting and family. The Cowboy’s Christmas Baby steps out of the main ranch family and expands to include Jewel and her daughter. Unbeknownst to her, her ex-fiance, Tanner, has been hiding out on the neighboring ranch, which creates tension right from the start. . . It made me smile the way Tanner stepped right into daddy role, even though Jewel was hesitant, he didn’t let her push him away from his daughter.”

Christy’s Cozy Corners – Review

The Cowboy’s Christmas Baby is a very cute book, and it’s a perfect read for the holidays. . . . If you haven’t read the others, no worries! You can absolutely read this as a stand alone. . . . I think you’ll love Tanner and Jewel’s story. Read it this Christmas!”

Pause for Tales – Review

“This was a sweet second chance romance with a solid history behind these two. I did like watching them fall in love again. This was a nice little holiday read.”

Rockin’ Book Reviews – Review

“This is a poignant story of love, betrayal, judgement, redemption, family values, and integrity. It steadily moves along, keeping the reader captivated. Although the story is somewhat predictable, there are enough twists to make it emotionally touching and interesting.”

Jorie Loves A Story – Review

“I felt McBride wrote a dearly realistic story-line which has a lot of hidden layers – she pulls apart her character’s emotional states by placing you centre-fold into their lives. . . . You get to re-visit with beloved characters, re-settle into the time-line of Sweetheart Ranch and find new characters you’re drawn into reading about due to their aspirations and the stories they have to share with us all.”

Hearts & Scribbles – Excerpt

JEWEL’S FACE HAD always been easy to read, the subtle nuances clearly telegraphing her every emotion. There was hardly a time Tanner had been unaware of her thoughts, especially when it came to her feelings for him.

Today was no different. Except trepidation had replaced the love he’d once seen.

He’d reconciled himself to Jewel no longer being a part of his life. Spotting her standing at the end of the barn aisle, a baby in her arms, he’d sworn his imagination was playing tricks on him. As he’d approached, he’d realized it wasn’t his imagination, and the wall enclosing his heart had split wide open to release a flood of emotions. Surprise. Shock. Confusion. Joy. Hurt. Even anger. How dare she have a baby, their baby, and not tell him! Regardless of what had passed between them, he deserved to know. He had a right to know.

Cover To Cover Cafe – Review

“Cathy McDavid has absolutely done it again! She has created a wonderful, heart warming novel that is perfect for the Christmas romance lovers! She creates fantastic plot lines, throws in yummy cowboys, and beautiful women and lots of surprises along the way. . . . This book had me up late into the night turning page after page. This is an unforgettable, heart warming holiday read and has me wanting to put up my tree now. Run, don’t walk, and grab this one up!”

EmpowerMoms – Review

“I liked reading about the ranch, barrel racing and the horses. The setting of the book was beautiful and I especially loved that it centered around the holidays. I really enjoyed it!”

Becky on Books – Review

“Tanner and Jewel’s story has it all–an adorable baby, the holiday season, a second chance at romance . . . . Ms McDavid kept this reader turning the pages, desperately hoping that the two of them would be able to get back together, but worrying that they wouldn’t actually be able to resolve the issues–most of which didn’t only involve or were even up to just them–in order to get to a satisfying HEA. Fortunately, they managed to pull it off, and I put the book down with a huge smile on my face.”

Splashes of Joy – Review

“Another sweet heartwarming story from author Cathy McDavid. Both characters were right at home around a barn with the horses, bull riding, barrel racing lessons. . . . And as the story unfolds, it did well to keep my interest. There was enough going on in the story till the very end too keep me reading. . . . If you are looking for a nice, clean Christmas read, this is one you will enjoy.”

Nicole’s Book Musings – Review

“I love the Sweetheart Ranch series. I always get lost in these books. It gives all the feels I’m looking for. . . . I also liked catching up with previous characters in the series. I love seeing them enjoying their HEAs. Plus how can you pass up a cover like the one for this book. That hooks you in all on is own.”

Red Headed Book Lady – Review

“I love a good clean read like these little books!! They leave your heart feeling full long after you are finished with them. . . . I really enjoyed this story and the way the way this author writes will surely have you hanging onto the edge of your seat waiting to see what happens to our two lovebirds? Who knows! I encourage you to pick up this book and read it. It will set your heart to racing against time. I just loved it!!”

Reading Is My SuperPower – Spotlight

Thoughts of a Blonde – Review

“This emotional journey of forgiveness will catch your attention quickly! With the third book in her The Sweetheart Ranch series, Cathy McDavid brings us THE COWBOY’S CHRISTMAS BABY … a reunion story between two former rodeo contenders. . . . I recommend this book to anyone loving a sweet romance filled with emotional strife and secrets to uncover. Really enjoyed their story!”

Locks, Hooks and Books – Review

“I highly recommend The Cowboy’s Christmas Baby for readers who love to read cowboy romance. I am giving it five plus stars. I believe this one should not be missed and definitely a must read.”

#BlogTour #Giveaway – A COWBOY’S CHRISTMAS PROPOSAL by Cathy McDavid


On Tour with Prism Book Tours

A Cowboy’s Christmas Proposal
(The Sweetheart Ranch #1)
By Cathy McDavid
Contemporary Romance
Paperback & ebook, 384 Pages
November 1st 2018 by Harlequin Heartwarming

At a magical time of year…

Can a cowboy help falling in love?

For single dad Owen Caufield, living and working at Sweetheart Ranch for a month is the perfect change of pace. While the cowboy turned wedding officiant can now spend more time with his children, Molly O’Malley, his new boss, is less thrilled. A wedding ranch isn’t the best place for three rambunctious youngsters. But amid the chaos—and the coming holidays—it may be the best place to fall in love…

GoodreadsAmazonB&NBook DepositoryHarlequiniBooksKobo

Excerpt

Molly immediately brightened. “Nora! Please tell me you’re here to rescue us.”

“What else would get me out of bed at this ungodly hour?”

Was eight forty-five an ungodly hour? Owen wondered. Apparently for Nora it was.

“I assume this is Homer’s great-nephew.” Removing her coat, she gave him careful consideration. “He didn’t mention you were easy on the eyes.”

Owen grinned. “He didn’t mention you were, either.”

Her dour countenance magically transformed into a delighted grin. “And charming to boot. I do believe this next month is going to be quite enjoyable.”

“For me, too.”

She twittered. Owen didn’t think he’d heard a woman twitter since he first met his former mother-in-law.

“Are you a witch?” Cody glowered at her. “I don’t like witches.”

Owen was tempted to cover his son’s mouth before the boy embarrassed him further. “Sorry about that.”

“No worries. Your children are adorable. Emily asked me to watch them while you’re busy marrying folks. Got a half-dozen of my own grandkids, so I’m plenty experienced.”

Owen thought her assessment of his kids was much too kind. “I’d be very grateful and will compensate you.”

“Emily’s paying my salary. Said childcare was part of her arrangement with you.”

It was, but Owen didn’t want to take advantage.

“Did Grandma tell you she was eloping?” Molly asked Nora.

“I’m her best friend. She called me last night.”

Molly scowled. “She left us a note.”

“Don’t go getting bent out of shape. She didn’t tell you because you’d have tried to talk her out of it.”

“I absolutely would have.”

“See?” Nora moved her suitcase-sized purse to her other arm. I’m also supposed to take over guest relations for you.”

“What?” Molly drew back. “No!”

Nora shrugged. “Suit yourself. But it’s either that or wedding coordinator, and I’m thinking you’ll be a whole lot better at coordinating weddings than me, considering you have experience planning two of your own.”

Molly ignored the comment and faced Owen. “I’ll fetch the cabin key and meet you there. Number six. Drive around back. Farthest one on the left.” With that, she left.

Owen watched her retreating back. Molly had been married twice?

“Touched a nerve, apparently,” Nora said, erupting in laughter.
