Guest Review by Rebbè Landers
“Right there and then, Zakia fell in love with him all over again. Once he’d used his pet name for her, she knew her arrogant, macho cowboy had been the right person to turn to after all. Zakia turned with a wide smile on her face, relieved and very much at east for the moment, as she made a big scene over the ponies. ‘They’re adorable… and they’re twins! How can you tell them apart?’”
This story was an enjoyable read about a couple who marry young and after some misunderstandings that led to their divorce bring them back together once more during a crisis. Finding that love still lingers between the two, not to mention a little surprise for him, they can’t seem to stay apart.
You just know from the first moment they set eyes upon each other that the fireworks between the two of them were inevitable. The descriptiveness of the scenery in the areas is fantastic, as the characters come to life in the mostly rural setting. Family and life in the country are an important part of this story making one wish to be a part of the lifestyle even if only for a short time.
I enjoyed this story enough that I had to read it for a second time. I enjoyed it all over again. I’ve always loved a cowboy on horseback or off, and there is a great suspense to this story as well. While reading this story you can see how a hard working cowboy earns a living at the same time teaching his children about the peacefulness and quality of life on a farm or ranch. It made me wish to be able to go for a ride on a horse with the lead character myself. Giddy up go cowboy!
I give Zakia and the Cowboy 5 big ole Texas style stars, and sure do wish there were more of those kind of cowboys out and about here, droolworthy writing.

A little bit about our guest blogger Rebbe Landers
I LOVE shopping, spending money, shopping, watching movies, reading almost anything, sitting in our yard out in the country round a bonfire in the nice warm Alberta evening and meeting new people much to my kids chagrin as I’ve never met a stranger, just a friend that I’ve yet to meet. I love to travel with my husband and have enjoyed a few trips to Thailand in the past and plan on going back again in the future. I’ve always loved to write and have since being a child. Stories have always interested me and kept my imagination quite fertile, much to my teacher’s dismay.
