Heart of a Cowboy

Book 1, Elk Heights Ranch

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


A stubborn cowboy has sworn never to forgive or forget—but one special woman may find a way to change his mind . . .
Hospice nurse Laken Garlington helps people face the end with peace and dignity, surrounded by their loved ones. But the son of her new patient didn’t come home to reunite with his dad. So why is Cyler Myer back in horse country? It’s clear the sexy, six-three hunk with the steely eyes has a score to settle, and Laken doesn’t plan on being collateral damage . . . no matter how irresistible she finds the prodigal cowboy.
Dying is too good for the father Cyler will never forgive—not in this lifetime.
Showing up at his family’s Washington State ranch is the first step in his plan. But revenge takes a back seat to desire when Cyler meets a bossy beauty who arouses feelings he isn’t ready to face. As they work together to save an ailing mare, Cyler realizes he must decide where his true destiny lies. With
darkness . . . or with the woman who offers the promise of redemption with every kiss.
“Obsessed. That’s how I felt while reading this book, like every page was better than the previous. Just try to put this down, I dare you.”
--#1 New York Times bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken

Customer Reviews

Need tissues!!!!

I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley and LOVED it so much that I purchased a copy!

This story will have you laughing and crying all over the place. The interaction between the characters is just fantastic. I love the one-liners and the teasing. The book didn’t like a story but real life with me, the reader, right there in the middle of it. I adored all of the characters. I felt for Jack and Cyler and the rift that was between them. Laken was a wonderful character for the calming peace that she brought.

I so look forward to the rest of the series. I really don’t see how Ms. Vayden can top this one. My emotions where all over the place. This is what a great story does, makes you feel. I HIGHLY recommend this emotional story to anyone. This is a definite keeper!


This was a truly fantastic story of hope, forgiveness, and new love. It's beautifully written with some amazing characters.

Larkin is a hospice nurse assigned to help Jack through his final weeks. Her kindness and compassion are instrumental in helping Jack make amends with his son Cyler. They are both proud men with a lot of ugly between them but Larkin helps smooth the way with her big heart and having Cyler around does wonderful things for her heart too.

Definitely a book I recommend to everyone.
