The Littlest Cowboy (The Texas Brand, #1)

The Littlest Cowboy (The Texas Brand, #1) - Maggie Shayne This is the first book by Maggie Shayne that I have ever read. I know she writes romantic suspense and paranormal books now. That being said, I enjoyed this early work by her. It was a nice set up for a series of books featuring the Brand family, 4 brothers and 1 sister all raised by the oldest, Garrett after their parents were killed in an accident. Being Texas, they live on a cattle ranch outside of a small town.

"The littlest cowboy" refers to baby Ethan who is left on the Brand's doorstep one night. His aunt shows up looking for the baby and danger follows her. I liked Garrett's character. He was very sweet and such a gentleman. It was amusing watching his siblings try to get him to make moves on Chelsea to get her to stay. I'm not all that sure I liked Chelsea in the beginning as she was pretty cold to Garrett. But I warmed to her by the end. I loved their HEA. Being the first in the series, you can see where the author sets up for future books involving the rest of the Brands finding their own HEAs. I look forward to reading them all. I think I will also look for some of her more recent works as well.
