Book Summary:
Libby Lowell's mind is made up. The only way for the widow to go forward with her life is to leave Laramie, Texas, behind. She should have known rugged rancher Holden McCabe would try to stop her! Her husband's best friend is Libby's fiercest protector. It's not that she doesn't want or need Holden's broad shoulder to cry on. But it's time to put away the past.

Holden isn't letting Libby get away so easily. He hasn't forgotten how she turned to him in her hour of need—and the painful secret she shared. But his idea to push them both into moving on backfires when passion leads to pregnancy…something Libby's wanted for so long.

Is this their biggest mistake…or the second chance they've both been searching for?

D's Review
What a SWEET, SEXY Christmas love story!!! I finished this book with a smile, a sigh and the strong urge to find me a cowboy to go looking for mistletoe and a Christmas tree with.

There is no suspense, no hidden agendas, this is a touching story about two people fighting their feelings towards each other out of a sense of guilt to Libby's deceased husband, who happened to be Holden's Best friend. Holden knew he wanted a HEA with Libby but she wanted to leave Laramie, TX in her rear view mirror.  They decide to be each other's "rebound" romance to get through the lonely holidays and to dip their toes in the dating world. They never planned on finding a HEA with each other.

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the fact that throughout the book Holden was wooing Libby. I loved their "dates", his blatant flirting and watching Libby come out of her shell.

The secondary cast, consisting of Holden's family, are loveable, meddlesome and the family relationships are realistic.  I was pleasantly surprised to find out that A COWBOY TO MARRY is part of an exiisting mini-series by CGT. It can be read as a stand alone, BUT if you are like me once you read it you are going to want to go back and read the previous McCabe books.

Being a Harlequin American Romance I wasn't expecting a lot of smexin, there was more than I expected and the scenes were sweet, hot and sexy!
