Return to New York Times Bestselling Author Lori Wilde’s beloved town of Cupid, Texas, where wedding fever is in the air . . . and two best friends discover that sometimes the perfect match is standing right in front of you . . .

Ember Alzate is a fantastic matchmaker with one big problem: she can’t find the perfect mate for herself! Alzate family legend says that when she kisses “the One” she’ll hear a mysterious humming in her head. Well, Ember’s kissed a lot of guys and she’s never heard a thing. Now, instead of searching for herself, she vows to find her best friend, Ranger Lockhart, a bride. It’s clear this smart, sexy man just needs to meet the right gal.

Ranger’s returned home to Cupid with marriage on his mind, but he’s not interested in the parade of women Ember pushes under his nose. His thoughts keep returning to his best friend—with her combustible combination of curves and sass. No one compares to Ember, but what’s it going to take to convince her she’s the woman for him?

How the Cowboy Was Won is the 6th installment in the Cupid, Texas series by Lori Wilde, and I will admit, I haven't read all of them yet, but that honestly didn't matter, as the author did a great job at introducing the characters again, and could absolutely be read as a stand-alone.

Now the story is a mixed bag! It is the traditional fall in love with your best friend trope, but add to that is the finding confidence in yourself after being emotionally abused by someone who is supposed to love you! But Lori Wild did an amazing job on the storyline, and it flowed beautifully.

Our two characters are Ember; exuberant redhead real estate agent, who is the life and soul of the party, and happens to make the perfect love matches! Whether it be house or Romance. Then there is Ranger, a mix of Scientist, professor, and stud! And having to make the hard choice between promotion and finally getting the women that he wants.

How the Cowboy Was Won is a great book, with through provoking topics and a steamy first kiss! Which is why I give it 4 stars.


Lori Wilde can’t remember a time when she didn’t want to write. She even went to nursing school so she could have a schedule flexible enough to allow her to write on the side. She nursed for 20 years, working in a variety of settings from the newborn nursery to the recovery room, to dialysis. But she never lost her desire to write.

She sold her first book in 1994 to Silhouette Romance but later discovered she had a flair for comedy and branched out to Harlequin Duets and now, to Blaze.

Lori is an adventuresome soul who loves to travel. She’s taken flying lessons, completed two marathons, rode in a hot-air balloon, performed with a professional jazz band, traveled Europe as a teenager, hiked volcanoes in Hawaii, trod on glaciers in Alaska, shot white-water rapids, water-skied, snow-skied, raced all-terrain vehicles, bodysurfed in the Gulf of Mexico, and photographed grizzly bears in Yellowstone.

She lives in her native Texas, with her own real-life hero, Bill.
