    I really liked The Cowboy Imports a Bride. I loved Rob and Morgan together. They were sweet together. I felt like everyone treated them like shit. I was angry for them. Especially Claire.... She is still a bitch no change there. She treated Morgan like shit in this book too. I love how much Rob worked to give Morgan her dream. This book was my favorite so far.

    I don't think I'm going to continue this series. I liked Rob in book 1 and I loved him, I just didn't care for Morgan or maybe it was more their story. I didn't understand their chemistry but I also didn't read book 2 because I hate the sister and Jamie bored me in book 1. So if chemistry stated there I missed out on it. The way everyone treated Rob was disgusting and how his mom just allowed his father and brothers to constantly bully him irritated me. Everyone kept pulling practical jokes on each other and I was over it. Like it was starting to be stupid. First I thought I was just Rob and Ethan going back and forth. Not the whole town. What's that about? Morgan's need to not have sex with Rob left me confused. They pledged theirselves to each other with the promise of forever but she wouldn't have sex until she had that guarantee. I don't know, it was like once it happened I was bored. I never felt this huge love between them.. By the time Rob and Morgan pulled yet another practical joke telling everyone they were leaving I was over it and had hoped they really did move. The hidden secrets of Ethan and Claire's mom. Confusing and dumb. Claire was a bitch and everyone allows her to continue being this way. Sucks because I did enjoy book 1.

    Just what I, fun and cowboy-rific!As the readers of my reviews…you should see a trend in my reading: Cowboys, fighters, rodeo cowboys, fighting cowboys, and just for good measure I read some bikers too. So it should come as no surprise that when the opening line in a book called The Cowboy Imports a Bride is “Rob Matheson’s a fighter”, I hit the request button on Net Galley. Rob is the youngest of four and life with three older brothers constantly telling you what to do and how to do can get old pretty quickly. Add on to that, a father who marginalizes you, a family that dismisses you and a whole town that believes you are a joke.Morgan first came to Chance Creek when her mother died. Being the illegitimate child no one wanted scarred Morgan’s self-esteem, but living in the shadow of her half siblings has taken a bite out of her soul. The only person who seems to see her for the person she really is on the inside is Rob Matheson, the handsome Chance Creek cowboy. Even months after they first met, Morgan can’t stop thinking about him. Then, he appears on her door step and my heart leapt along with Morgan’s. They had instant chemistry, but I loved how the story unfolded and these two great kids “decided” to love each other and vowed to commit to each other forever. Like an arranged marriage, Morgan and Rob arranged their future in Chance Creek on the 200 acres Rob was promised as a wedding gift.But, of course, the arrangement doesn’t go smoothly. I did love how these two talked and talked and talked (and squeezed a whole lotta lovin’ in too)…they never gave up on them as a couple, their future or their chance at love. I loved how the side characters would pop in and out of the story and yet Morgan and Rob were strong and honest with each other throughout their trials. A fun, smexy, happily ever after between a cowboy and a west coast Canadian girl! Enjoy!

    ★★★½✩ (This is a review of the audiobook.) Nicely narrated by Amy Rubinate. Quick, fast story that she handled well.There were story-lines in this I enjoyed more than in the other books, but by contrast, I was disappointed with other parts that just didn't come across as quite right. Or maybe "fully developed" is more accurate. The arguments were not between the hero and heroine (which was nice!), but mostly between the other characters from previous books. Nice change of pace, that. Loved Rob's epiphany moment in the bar, too. A lot of the reasons for the animosity between Rob and is brothers is uncovered here, and they certainly held my interest. However, I particularly didn't like the confrontation between Rob and his father, Holt. (view spoiler)[ Rob notes his father not looking well, even a little frail, but then belittles him on his dyslexia & who's really running the ranch. What? How do you spell the words "mature" and "compassionate"? Also, I didn't find the responses from both Rob and Morgan regarding his father giving them the land, but still wanting Rob to work his father's ranch full-time, complete in their incredulity. Huh? What kind of gift is that? How about some input on this from Lisa, Rob's mother? She was certainly present in the book, not just filler. These conversations needed to be further developed. And then the whole "playing a practical joke" on Rob's family fell flat for me. What kind of adults play a cruel joke like that, and for so long? Even if some of them deserved it (personally, I would have really moved to California), not all of them did!(hide spoiler)]In addition, I was very unhappy that Claire, from The Cowboy Wins a Bride, is still a self-centered bitch; while this may make her consistent with book #2, it makes me like her book even less, as I believed the love and security of Jamie's arms tamed the "beast," so gave my rating the benefit of the doubt. Instead, some of Claire's bad traits rubbed on on Jamie in book #3. Thank goodness Ethan & Autumn were still their wonderful selves!Still, I'm going to continue with the series.

    When Rob´s father promises a bit of land to the son that marries first, Rob is quick to propose to the woman who´s caught his eye. Morgan is ready for a change in life herself, so after a bit of negotiations, they´ve agreed, marriage and family while working together with her dream of a winery. Neither of them expected the reactions from their families, though. Can they get what they dream of, without sacrificing their loved ones?Contemporary romance, emotions and smutty fluff in a great combo. Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book in return for an honest review.

    An arranged marriage not like one I've ever read before. I'm glad Rob finally got his act together both with stopping the practical jokes and going after what he wanted, Morgan and the land. I can't wait to see what they find out about Morgan, Claire and Ethan's mom in the next book. Also looking forward to Cab' HEA.

    *ARC provided by netgalley* This book is a sweet romance. I liked it but there was so much dramas, it was getting on my nerves and I don't really like when a book does that to me. Even if it is the third book in the series, you can read it as a stand alone but if you want to be more attached to the characters at very the beginning, you should start the first two books before starting this one. :) Since he's a boy, Rob learned how to protect himself from his three older brothers by learning how to fight and how to keep people at arms-length with his practical jokes. It became an instinct for him and because of it, he isn't taking seriously by anyone. He hates working at the ranch of his father but does it anyway because he's a hard worker. He isn't happy and knows that something is missing in his life. And that something could be a someone. The offer of his father could also be the perfect opportunity for him to be happy. Morgan is living in Canada on her own. She doesn't really have a family because her parents had a family on their own. Her father doesn't care about her, and her mother just died. She came in Chance Creek to meet her half-siblings and fell in love with Rob, their neighbour. When he showed up at her doorway in Canada, she's pleased and surprised. He proposes marriage and it's her possibility to have what she always wanted: a winery and a baby. (view spoiler)[ (hide spoiler)]They're struggling to pass the problems they're facing with the others characters. Especially with Claire, and Rob's dad. Even writing their name makes me remember how much they got on my nerves. The chastity with Morgan was also annoying..(view spoiler)[But finally, they're fixing up the issues.(hide spoiler)] :).

    This rating for me is entirely personal preference in story-telling. I am very picky about my cowboy fiction. In short I either hate it or I love it. I was lost somewhere in the middle, because the first half I wasn't totally into. I couldn't quite relate to any of the characters in the story. I struggled between them being selfish, prudish, and a bit arrogant. I wasn't all together sold on the whole, "I'm not a virgin, but I am now, and I'm not going to be with a man before I'm married--oh wait, I want you now so come get me." You basically know from the get go that this couple is in love with one another. There is a chemistry that you can actually feel because of the strong writing. However the author tosses in some past hang ups in order to not jump right into the sexual content of the story--there is some religious type reasoning, and it comes off almost awkward. It was a forced conflict that sort of interfered with the flow of the story-telling. Once the characters got comfortable it seemed I was able to enjoy the story more. Basically, when she got over her need to be a prude I was down with the story. Yes, the father and half-sister were annoying. But I have personally dealt with lame family members--and it is entirely believable that family would act the way they did in this creating unneeded drama. As a whole--it was personal preference on my part where it comes to the stories entertainment value. I know a target audience for this series and I realized it was not me. The writing and voice was very strong. If it wasn't I wouldn't have had such strong feelings towards the characters. I just thought it was too light and sweet for me. **I received a copy of this book from One Acre Press via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review**

    The Cowboy Imports a Bride is a 2013 One Acre publication. I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. In this book Rob gets his comeuppance for all those practical jokes. People do not believe he is capable of being serious, holding down a serious job or being serious about just one girl. But, Rob is pining over Claire's half sister, Morgan. When his father announces he will give 200 hundred acres to the first son that gets married, Rob makes a beeline to Morgan. She gives Rob three things he must do in order for her to marry him. One is to cherish her, one is to help her start her own vineyard and the other is to start a family. Rob readily agrees. But, things get complicated when he tells his family what his plans are. His dad swears there is no way his land will ever be tilled for a vineyard. So, Rob finds another solution only to have that blow up in his face as well. Together Rob and Morgan will have to decide if they should still marry or if they will let their families drive them apart.This is another solid installment in the Chance Creek series. Rob's father is a real manipulator and no matter which way Rob turns he can't seem to win. This book will examine the positive results from being able and willing to work together and make some concessions in order for things to work out for everyone. Overall this one is a B.

    So I did enjoy this.However... Claire is the biggest effing bitch in the world. Seriously, I have never liked her, and she just made my dislike of her that much stronger in this book. Jamie whom I really previously liked before was a bit of an ass for the short amount of time he was in it.I liked Morgan. Honestly, she seems the most level headed and normal out of all the women in the series so far. (Though I can't remember how I felt about Autumn). Though her fears about getting pregnant before marriage were a bit juvenile. Especially given that she was engaged to him! AND WANTED CHILDREN!!!So that whole plot just made her cold to me. Never marry a man without sleeping with him first... otherwise you might regret your bedroom compatibility.The families were sooo awful. Honestly, the way that Rob's father and brothers treated him... awful. And their reasons for it? Not good enough in my opinion.(view spoiler)[I also didn't particularly care for the way her "In all the craziness, I forgot about my period... I might be pregnant" announcement literally at the wedding. It just felt... very very forced.(hide spoiler)]Though even with that... I did enjoy it.

    ARRANGED MARRIAGEhaving read the previous book in this series The Cowboy Wins a Bride. This was IMO a better read. I liked the heroine in this story a whole lot more.Rob Matheson works on his family's ranch with his parents and brothers. Rob is a bit of a womaniser, practical joker and fighter. But deep down he's not happy with his lot in life. When his father offers 200 acres to the first son to marry and produce grandchildren, this gives Rob pause to think. Morgan the sister that Ethan and his Sister Claire, never knew they had. Was recently in Chance Creek. Rob had been attracted to Morgan more than any other woman before.With 200 acres up for grabs and a chance to do something worthwhile on his own, he makes a decision to ask Morgan to marry him.Rob and Morgan were likeable characters and I couldn't help but root for them in this story. They face an uphill battle with friends and family, making this an entertaining and enjoyable read. Characters from the previous books appear. The love scenes are very sensuous and emotional. A good addition to the series.ARC courtesy of NetGalley

    This is a well written and edited romance novel set on a ranch in Montana.The Hero is desperate to become independent from his father and his family's ranch. The heroine is a talented wine maker looking for the right place to settle down. When his father swears to give land to the first of his sons to marry the story takes off.Family conflict and self doubt almost ruin this couple's plans, but all of the conflict leads to a HEA.This is a good book for a light weekend or vacation read.ARC provided by the publisher via Netgalley.

    From the title of this book--The Cowboy Imports a Bride--you might think that the story is about a mail order bride. Nope! This book by Cora Seton, is about the importance of family and showing love and respect. The main characters, Rob Matheson and Morgan Tate, have dreams of accomplishing something on their own, without being dictated to by family or friends. But they also don't want to move away in order to be happy. This third book in the Cowboys of Chance Creek series, is entertaining and well written. Rob and Morgan were easy to imagine and root for. This book worked as a standalone but it will leave you wanting to know more about the people of Chance Creek!

    I wouldn't say I LOVED it, but I did really enjoy reading it. I didn't really like the big reveal as to what Aria did with all the money, it really brought down my enjoyment of the book because I think if it wasn't there I probably would have marked it 5 stars. These books are just so easy to read and a really nice thing to read between books and stuff because they're not super deep (they've got some depth but nothing too serious that'll leave me heartbroken or angry with anything that went down) and I really like that!

    WOW! What a powerful story. Finding out about Rob's family was an interesting journey to go on. The same goes for Morgan's family. What an interesting family dynamics. I love Rob & Morgan's love story. Two lost souls finding each other & pledging their love for each other before actually falling truly in love with each other. I am so happy that these two finally got their happily ever after! FANTASTIC job Cora! I listened to this entire book in one day - couldn't stop listening to it! I would recommend this book and audio!

    Practical joker turned seriousRob is the ever practical joker but he had a deeper side to him. He has always felt undervalued by his father and brothers and wants something for himself. Morgan kind of swept him off his feet as she was the only woman who didn't want something from him and was the only one who he could be open with with his dreams. A chance proposal and deal made can they make it together.

    Rob is a restless cowboy. No responsibilities to speak of and he is bored. When his father offers 200 acres to the first of his four sons to marry, Rob leaves for Canada to ask Morgan to marry him. They had met the month before and he wanted desperately to see her again. Things just keep going wrong and Rob and Morgan decide they may have to leave home to a hive their dreams.

    I loved how sweet Rob and Morgan were together. Everyone treated them poorly, but they knew what they wanted and worked as hard as they could to get it. Rob went into the relationship full-boar. I'm glad he figured out what he wanted to pursue in life.
