Publisher Comments:

That's when I saw him — the cowboy — across the smoky room.

I'll never forget that night. It was like a romance novel, an old Broadway musical, and a John Wayne Western rolled into one. Out for a quick drink with friends, I wasn't looking to meet anyone, let alone a tall, rugged cowboy who lived on a cattle ranch miles away from my cultured, corporate hometown. But before I knew it, I'd been struck with a lightning bolt... and I was completely powerless to stop it.

This isn't just my love story; it's a universal tale of passion, romance, and all-encompassing love that sweeps us off our feet.

It's the story of a cowboy. And Wranglers. And chaps. And the girl who fell in love with them.

Review:

“An affecting new memoir...charming and romantic. Riotously funny...Drummond is...sure to have readers in tears and in stitches. In a word: delightful.” Publishers Weekly

Review:

“Fans of Drummond's blog and cookbook will eat up this breathless blow-by-blow chronicle of falling in love with Marlboro Man, a.k.a. her husband, and adapting to life on his ranch....Generous dollops of self-deprecating humor contribute a welcome tang.” People

Review:

The Pioneer Woman is perfect reading for Valentine's Day, whether you're celebrating a lasting love or still looking for The One. Even the most cynical of readers will be charmed by Drummond's hilarious story of being won over by a cowboy.” BookPage

Review:

“Charming and bright, Drummond's story will be an inspiration to those who despair of finding old-fashioned, lasting love.” Booklist

I loved this book! Ree is a wonderful writer. I really enjoyed reading about her life and how she met and married Marlboro Man. I had to remind myself that this was not fiction because it was so well written. Ree came a long way from her plans to move to Chicago and her "fancy" clothes and shoes to be a wife on a ranch. I hope she will write another book with more about her life and family.
