The "First Lady of the West," #1 New York Times bestselling author Linda Lael Miller, cordially invites you to Parable, Montana-where love awaits.  

Wedding bells are ringing in Parable, Montana, but Brylee Parrish hasn't enjoyed the sound since being jilted at the altar by Hutch Carmody. She's over Hutch now, and running a multimillion-dollar business is challenging enough for this country gal. So she should avoid falling head-over-boot-heels for A-list actor Zane Sutton. He's come home to his rodeo roots, but Hollywood lured him away once and just might again. Yet everything about him, from his easy charm to his concern for his young half brother, seems too genuine to resist....

Zane didn't come to Parable for love-but count on a spirited woman to change a jaded cowboy's mind. Problem is, Brylee's not convinced he's here to stay. Good thing he's determined to prove to her, kiss by kiss, that she's meant to be his bride.

My thoughts: Oh, Linda Lael Miller - you've done it again...I am totally over the moon with your 'Swoon-Worthy Cowboys' series. This is the 5th book in Linda Lael Miller's Swoon-Worthy Cowboy series and I've been waiting for a long time to see if Brylee ever gets her happily-ever-after and I definitely was not disappointed!

Big Sky Wedding is Brylee and Zane's story. Brylee is still dealing with the humiliation of being left at the alter. It seems everyone else around her has found love but her and she is struggling to believe that there really is someone out there for her. Zane is trying to find himself. He was once a country boy but was lured by the lights of Hollywood. Taking some time to figure things out, he heads to the ranch that he and his brother bought as an investment. Little did he know that not only would he find love, but also the real meaning of family. From the moment he and Brylee meet, the sparks start flying and while neither is looking for anything, it seems love has a different plan. Then there's Nash, Zane's younger step-brother who is dumped on his door. 

While I loved Brylee and Zane's story, it was the story of Zane and Nash that stole my heart. Nash just wanted to be wanted and never knew when he was going to be thrusted onto someone else. As Zane gets to know him and realize just how much his father's actions have damaged this young boy, his guilt gets the best of him. But he realizes he needs to tread slowly - Nash is definitely very slow to trust anyone.

One of my favorite characters in this whole series has been Opal, better known as matchmaker extraordinaire! But, not that she's married herself to the local pastor, she's far too busy to keep up with the matchmaking. Enter Cleo, Zane's overzealous housekeeper from LA. She is one woman I certainly wouldn't want to mess with!

I just love this series and was so excited to find out that there will be another installment coming out early next year. I can't wait to find out who the story will be about!
