I want to start off this review by saying that I adore cowboys and love stories, so I was really looking forward to reading this book.

The first story in the book was "The Valentine's Curse" Ranch hand Brody has been working hard  and has also been excluded from other ranch hands in any activities that go on at the ranch.  Brody seems so lonely. The wife of the ranch's owner took a liking to the lonely ranch hand and ordered him to be at the dance she had put togther.  He needed to sit and entertain the lady they called "The Widow"  who is supposedly cursed.
I'll stop there otherwise I may giveaway part of the story.
I felt quite heartbroken for Brody and the way he was treated by those he worked with.  He is the type of hero you want to cuddle and give your love to because you know he just has not gotten enough kindness in his life.  Valerie is the cursed widow and has been through so much as well, I had great sympathy for her.  This story bring so much emotion to the reader, I really enjoyed it.

Next is: Cupid's Arrow

Rue Anne a newly engaged lady has been manipulated by someone to be kept away from the man she truly loves.  Logan Cutter is that man and he's completely heartbroken over losing his Rue Anne to another man.
I liked the storyline, there were twists and turns and some crazy old sisters who kept things interesting.  I also liked that the story moved along quickly and didn't leave you guessing for to long.

Loving Miss Laurell 

This was not my favourite story of them all, I began it and it was unfortunately quite uninteresting. 

Hunter is a Hunky Ranch Owner who is trying to bring the Rail road into their town. He and the men of the Town need to raise some money so they came up with a plan to host a Box Dinner and Dance.  Much to the women of the town's surprise. Of course, the women couldn't let the men outdo them.  They all competed to make the most money for the town and if the women won they would get a town library instead of a rail road track.
The story is alright but I prefer more action, mystery or passion in my stories.  This story just left me wanting.

The last story of all is " Sweet Talk"

The sweet talking that's expected in this story is certainly not the kind of sweet talking that happens in this story.  It begins a little slow but turns out to be a real romance comedy.  Noah is a Hot Country Doctor who's a workaholic and JoEmma is a wheelchair ridden sweetheart.

I loved these characters, they were lovely in spirit and humour. I truly enjoyed their story.

I hope will will take the time to read this book.  I am so ready for Valentines Day thanks to this wonderful book.  "Be My Texas Valentine" is a perfect Romantic Read for Valentines Day.
