BoW: Talk Cowboy to Me

Posted on February 15, 2017 at 9:32 AM by Lianne Flax

 talkcowboy   Talk Cowboy to Me
   by Carolyn Brown

   Available as: Total Boox ebook
   Unlimited copies, book never expires.

Adele is newly divorced and thinks that the Double Deuce Ranch would be a great place to raise her kids. However, formerly-carefree cowboy Remington thinks the same thing, as he's now caring for his orphaned nephews.

Carolyn Brown is a popular contemporary romance writer and usually sticks to a more Western theme. This is just her most recent.  Total Boox has a number of her other books, as does Freading (if you prefer that service or have a computer, they just have not yet loaded her newest book).

To learn to use either Total Boox (mobile only) or Freading (also available for computer users) see the instructions off of the Digital Book eLending page.

Recently awarded the 2017 Newbery Medal for outstanding contribution to children's literature.

The people of the Protectorate fear the witch living in the woods so much, they leave a newborn baby in the woods every year as a sacrifice. Xan is odd and has magic, but doesn't eat babies - she makes sure each finds a new family. One year she accidentally feeds a baby moonlight and decides to raise that child as her own.
