I really enjoyed reading An Englishwoman's Guide to the Cowboy and I recommend it highly not only to readers who enjoy romance but also to those who enjoy well written fiction whatever the genre.
The setting is the American West in 1867. An unexpected stage coach wreck causes well-bred, bookish, Englishwoman-abroad, Annie Haddon to meet English-hating, rule-breaking, Colt McCall. Was there ever such a hero? Heathcliff meets Rhett Butler! Colt is a wonderful romantic lead although the development of his and Annie's relationship is far from conventional.
The supporting characters are many and varied reflecting the different aspects of society of the era and the complexity of the plot. The writing is so good that every character comes alive and makes a strong contribution to the overall story. The dialogue is excellent providing authenticity to the setting and ensuring the vivid development of the characters.
The plot has more than enough complications to keep the story moving forwards at a good pace and, of course, there's a very satisfactory ending in true romance style albeit with an unexpected twist. One of the best examples of romantic fiction I've ever read.

It's 1867 and 9 people are squashed inside a stagecoach as it beats it's way across the hot dust of Texas. Inside are English trio Annie Haddon, her cousin Charlotte and Aunt Bea. In true British aristocracy style the ladies are broiling in their layers of clothing, gloves and hats, but it is against strict etiquette to be seen in anything less.

The white man is sweeping across the states of America, bringing it's railway and forcing the native Indians out. Tensions are high and stages coaches easy targets. When the stagecoach crashes in a typical hold up, Annie if left for dead. That is until Colt McCall rescues her.

With an Irish father and a Sioux mother, Colt has had a tough life. He learned to fight hard to get where he is today, he respects the Comanche Indians and hates the way that money and greed of the white man is killing off a way of life. Yet he's not safe from either side, he's a wanted man by the army, and he hasn't much time for a prim and proper English lady.

In the time it takes to get Annie back reunited with her relations at Fort Mackenzie, she learns to like much of the wildness. Stupid and feisty, causing endless trouble for McCall, she'll stick up for what she thinks is right, making mistakes but earning respect along the way.

I really enjoyed this book, a fan of the old cowboy movies, this book took me back to the old stories about the wild west, with an old fashioned romance. I felt I was watching a movie again and half expected Calamity Jane to walk on set at any time.

This review is based on a free copy of the book given to me by the author.

Evelyn Tidman:
What an unexpected delight this book is. As the author of GENTLEMAN OF FORTUNE, The Adventures of Bartholomew Roberts - Pirate I am naturally interested in historical fiction, and I have to say that An Englishwoman's Guide to the Cowboy is totally different to anything I have read. It is witty, funny, and unput-down-able.
When Annie Haddon is rescued by sexy Texan Colt McCall, she finds herself alone with him in the Texas wilderness in a situation her gentle upbringing in London has not prepared her for. A clash of cultures makes for laugh-out-loud entertainment. Will Annie break free from her stifling upbringing, and domineering Aunt Bea and spiteful cousin Charlotte? And must she go back to London to marry the detestable Henry Hewell? Will she find her father, known to be in Texas? The situation where the Army is attacked by Indians is priceless.

I thoroughly recommend An Englishwoman's guide to the Cowboy for sheer entertainment value.

For a debut novel, June Kearns has hit the spot.
I am looking forward to her next book.

Annie, a 27-year old Englishwoman, finds herself in a distressing situation in the American West when her stagecoach is attacked. She awakens to find a handsome cowboy nursing her injuries and her aunt and cousin are nowhere to be found. She and the cowboy, Colt McCall are thrown together on many occasions and they bond. Annie is slightly crippled from a childhood injury and considered to be an undesirable match for any suitor. So, her Aunt Bea has promised her to an older man whom she does not like. Her Aunt Bea and Cousin Charlotte’s true feelings about Annie come out and there are a few surprise events at the end of the story. It is light,humorous tale and includes a bit of historical fiction. Truly an enjoyable read!

I loved this book. A well written story, beautifully told.
Set against the backdrop of the wild west of the 1800s, our English heroine is an intelligent, fiesty but buttoned-up woman, nearing her sell-by date as far as matrimony is concerned.
She meets a charismatic, half Irish, half native American cowboy who has a bad reputation and a good heart. The build-up of passion was superb and had me turning page after page,as the story and their love grew.
The ending had a nice twist too.
A brilliant debut from a great new writer. Looking forward to lots more quality romance from this new talent.
