Wrangler’s Creek #6
by Delores Fossen
My Rating: 💜 💜 💜
The most important two words for this Wrangler’s Creek rodeo cowboy? I do…
Lucian Granger isn’t winning any Mr. Cowboy Congeniality awards. Known in his small Texas town as “Lucifer” thanks to his surly nature and knack for scaring people away from getting too close, the handsome rancher has no trouble ignoring the gossip. But when he’s in danger of losing the land he’s put his blood, sweat and tears into maintaining, Lucian sets out to prove he’s a changed man—by claiming he’s about to settle down with his invaluable assistant, Karlee O’Malley.
Their pending nuptials may be just for show, but from the moment they kiss, the proverbial fireworks start going off in his head—and in his heart. Before long, the man who’s usually as emotional as a brick wall is tired of pretending and wants to share a real future with Karlee. With his world suddenly turned upside down, Lucian will risk losing the business and the ranch if it means holding on to the one woman worth becoming a better man for.

This was my first read by Delores Fossen and I can now say that I get all the hype about her books! This was a funny and romantic read that I finished in two sittings.
I am a big fan of the fake romance trope if it’s done right and this really was. Lucian also was known as Lucifer in his town, was going through a lot. He had to step up to the plate when his dad stepped out and he’s worked himself to the bone to make the family business a success. Unfortunately, his dad is now back in the picture and threatening Lucian and everything he has done so far.
I loved seeing the connection between Karlee and Lucian. It took a bit for them to get their happy ending but they were troopers and jumped through hoops to get together. I really loved how Lucian was ready to give up everything for Karlee!
While the romance was great, it wasn’t the main focus of the novel. You get more on the business and drama side here. If that doesn’t bother you then I recommend giving this a try!
