Book Review w/Excerpt: Her Cowboy Prince by Trish Milburn

Her Cowboy Prince by Trish Milburn

Once Upon a Western (Book 1)

Tule Publishing (June 12, 2018)

Contemporary Western Romance


After testifying at the murder trial that sent her stepmother to prison and escaping an attempt on her life, Melody Shaw has lost everything. Formerly CEO of her family’s pharmaceutical company, she’s now living incognito as a housekeeper at a cozy resort in rural Montana. New career, new apartment, new name. She knows she needs to keep a low profile. The last thing she needs is a romance with the handsome, hardworking owner of the Peak View Hot Springs Resort.

When rancher and resort owner Justin McQueen impulsively asks Melody for some ideas to increase bookings for the resort, he’s impressed with her creativity and quick thinking. He persuades the reluctant Melody to jump in as the temporary events coordinator, helping him plan a week of Christmas festivities. As they work together, both of them struggle to fight their growing attraction. Justin is still recovering from a bad break-up and is very aware that as her employer, he needs to tread carefully. He also senses Melody has a secret, which he is determined to uncover.

As their event planning comes to fruition, Justin knows he needs to put common sense on hold and take a chance on a love he wants to last forever.







Her Cowboy Prince is contemporary western romance. It is loosely based on the classic fairy tale, Cinderella, with a hint of suspense. It’s an engaging story with likable characters. I loved reading about Justin’s family and the supporting characters. I have already read book 2 (The Cowboy’s Kiss) and am looking forward to book 3 for Wes, the last brother’s story. I do hope the author writes a story for Marty, though not a brother, he’s an interesting character and I see a wonderful story for him.

milburnTrish Milburn is the author of more than 40 novels and novellas in the romance, women’s fiction and young adult genres. She’s also a two-time winner of Romance Writers of America’s prestigious Golden Heart Award, two-time Maggie Award of Excellence winner, and winner of the 2013 EPIC eBook Award for her young adult novel White Witch.

She enjoys road trips, traveling by train, and exploring America’s National Parks. And though it sounds like a line from a personals ad, she also enjoys walks on the beach – especially since she moved to Florida after growing up in Kentucky and spending 20 years living in Nashville after college. She’s a big geek girl, known to cosplay on occasion, channeling characters from Kahlan Amnell (Legend of the Seeker) to The Doctor (Doctor Who) to a Shadowhunter (The Mortal Instruments series). She loves a good costume/historical drama or sci-fi epic, and if you can combine the two that’s even better. That explains why two of her favorite shows of all time are Firefly and Timeless.
