The marriage is supposed to be in name only, with her returning home with her brother after the ceremony. This arrangement is specially cruel considering the hero's true love had died in his arms in similar conditions. They did not know, by the time, that consumption was a highly contagious disease and it was nerve-racking because not only she was going to die, but everyone around her was at great risk of catching the disease. Luckily no one was infected, and obviously, there is an HEA, but the subject was a little too dense for my taste. It is a good story in spite (or because) of that. According to the author notes, it was based on a true story of a female physician that recovered from the disease after moving to a dryer climate and started to walk long distances to see to her patients. This made the book more special.

    It's pretty common for each book in a series to slowly dip down in quality as things progress, and the rogues series is apparently no exception. These characters were...

Any man who loves his wife would take her to a doctor or two to see if there's anything more to be done. Kit talks to a doctor, but he doesn't take Ashton along until the end. Then there's Kit's constant attempts to meet death. His maudlin moping fits are enough to drive a monk to drink. Just... Ugh.

    David Robertson’s sister Ashton is dying of consumption, and he yearns to make her last dreams come true, by finding her a husband and giving her a wedding day. He couldn’t have known what a cruel favor this would be to ask of his friend, Fortune, Texas Marshall Kit Montgomery, who has already experienced what it’s like to watch a beloved woman die. But when Kit gets to know Ashton, he feels compelled to grant her dying wish, even knowing that he risks losing everything once again.

But when Kit gets to know Ashton, he feels compelled to grant her dying wish, even knowing that he risks losing everything once again. Saying that a Lorraine Heath book is too sentimental feels kind of like complaining that creme brulee is too sweet, but this one does occasionally cross the line from touching to maudlin. One dying angel in a book is more than enough for me and here we have two; I would have liked to see some growth in Kit’s character, some acknowledgment from him that his angels are just mortal women with mortal faults. Also, there’s a lot of plot crowded into a fairly small space in the last half of the book. I felt glad to have read this mostly because I’ve read all the other books connected to it and it was good to have the holes in the story filled in, (view spoiler)[though this also gave the book an even more melancholy air, since I knew the tragedy that awaited the characters later, in The Outlaw and the Lady (hide spoiler)] . Other than that, it was a decent read but didn’t enthrall me.

The one time he Reviewed for THC Reviews Thus far, I’ve loved everything I’ve read by Lorraine Heath, and Never Marry a Cowboy is no exception. It was a wonderful wrap-up to the Rogues in Texas, and my favorite of the series. This final book features, Kit Montgomery, the last of the three English nobleman friends who were sent to Texas to earn their way. Grayson and Harrison each lost their hearts in turn to Texas ladies in the first two books of the series, but Kit has vowed never to love again. The one time he allowed himself to love, it turned out disastrously and broke his heart into a million pieces. But he didn’t count on a frail woman who has been told she’s dying to capture his heart once more. Ashton’s brother, David, caught her trying on her mother’s wedding dress and read in her journals that she had a crush on Kit, who had visited her family only once, but had captured her imagination and her heart during his short time there. Thinking it will provide Ashton with her dying wish, David asks Kit to give his sister a marriage in name only. This leads to a great deal of complications for this tortured hero with a heart of gold. I absolutely loved Never Marry a Cowboy. It’s a sweet, emotional, and sensual read that gave me all kinds of warm fuzzies and left me with a smile on my face. When I first saw hints in the previous book, Never Love a Cowboy, of just how tortured and vulnerable Kit was, I knew he was going to be a great hero, and he definitely didn’t disappoint. Kit is the second-born of identical twins, who never felt like he could live up to his father’s expectations. He was a weak and sickly child, so he worked twice as hard to earn his father’s respect but never really had it. Then he and his identical twin brother Christopher fell in love with the same woman, but since Christopher was the oldest and the heir, he is the one who ended up marrying her. Then Clarisse became seriously ill. Unable to deal with Clarisse being in unbearable pain during her final hours and knowing that Kit would want to say goodbye, Christopher sent for Kit, who secretly overdosed Clarisse on pain medication and then held her in his arms as she died. What he did has tormented him ever since, yet he knows he would do it all over again. It broke his heart so badly he vowed never to love again. Now he lives in Texas where he was sent by his father, and after trying his hand at picking cotton and driving cattle, he’s finally settled in as the new marshal of the little town of Fortune, where he and his friends live. Kit is more or less walking through life in a blur, unable to get over his lost love, when David comes calling asking Kit to marry his sister. Getting involved, even in a pretend marriage, with a dying woman is the last thing Kit wants to do, but when he sees Ashton again, he’s drawn to her ethereal beauty. After spending a day with her and seeing the childlike joy she takes in such simple things, despite her illness, he knows he can’t deny her this final wish. But the more time he spends with Ashton, the more he wants to give her and make all her wishes come true, yet the guilt over what he did to Clarisse still haunts him, making him hold back a part of himself from her. I loved Kit to pieces for not only wanting to make Ashton’s wish come true, but for insisting on going above and beyond. He’s a very detail-oriented person who doesn’t forget a single thing and treats her like a princess. Kit is so giving and loving toward Ashton even though he knows that the further he falls in love with her the worse his heart is going to break if she dies in six months as the doctor predicted. This motivates him to do everything he can to help her get better, and I loved how he coaxes her to eat more and encourages her to take long walks with him on the beach where they’re honeymooning. His efforts pay off as she slowly gains weight and becomes stronger. I adore the way he pampers her and wants to give her everything he can to make as many beautiful memories as possible in the time they have left, so they will both have something to sustain them in her final days and beyond. Kit is a wonderful man who wears his heart on his sleeve, but at the same time, he’s incredibly strong and brave in ways it would be easy for others to miss. Ashton is a sweet, unassuming young woman, who has been sickly all her life. She nearly died the previous winter, which is why the doctor, who diagnosed her with consumption, doesn’t expect her to live more than another six months. Because of her illness, she’s been doted upon and protected by her family, rarely doing much outside the house. When Kit came to visit her brother in the previous book, she was very attracted to him and started daydreaming about a life with him, which she detailed in her journals. When she travels to Fortune with David, she has no idea of his plans to ask Kit to marry her. When she finds out, she doesn’t want his pity, but after spending some time with him, she finds herself falling more in love with him, so that when he proposes, she can’t resist accepting, even though she knows it’s a pretend marriage in name only. But that all changes when Kit insists upon taking her on a proper wedding trip to Galveston, where they spend a month at the beach, thoroughly enjoying each other’s company. Ashton may have been pampered and brought up in privilege, but she’s no spoiled miss. In fact, she craves her independence and wants to experience a few firsts before her time comes. Despite supposedly dying, she has an unquenchable zest for life and wants to seize every moment of the time she has left. Because of Kit’s first love dying, she doesn’t want to cause him any more pain and fully intends to go back to her brother’s in Dallas when their time at the shore is up but finds herself falling more and more in love with him. She basks in Kit’s love until she discovers his darkest secret. Then she isn’t sure how she feels about what he did. The part of the story surrounding her uncertainties and shying away from Kit was hard to read after the beautiful romance they’d shared, but every part of the story was important to them finding peace, redemption, and an HEA. There are several notable supporting characters in Never Marry a Cowboy. Kit’s brother, Christopher, shows up, unintentionally confusing the townspeople into thinking he is Kit, which was amusing. I really liked that he became a part of the story, because the two brother have such a close connection. They share that twins thing, where they can feel each other’s emotions even with an ocean separating them, and they’ve always been close, never begrudging each other anything, even when they fell in love with the same woman. Christopher suffered, too, when Clarisse died, so it was nice to see him get a new happy ending as well. Gray (A Rogue in Texas) and Harry (Never Love a Cowboy) prove to be Kit’s loyal friends to the end. I love the bond that these men share. We also get to see Gray’s and Harry’s wives, Abby and Jessye, as well as their ever-expanding families. It was also nice to see Kit reconcile with his father. Then there are the villainous outlaws who cause no end of trouble for Kit. Overall, Never Marry a Cowboy was a splendid read that was full of the sweetness, emotion, and swoon-worthy romance that I crave in my reading. I truly felt Kit and Ashton falling in love from the very beginning and throughout the first two-thirds or so of the book. I just loved all the time they spent together, getting to know one another and coming to realize they couldn’t live without each other. During this part of the story they’re so loving and giving. Even though the distance that develops after Ashton learns the truth of Clarisse’s demise is heartbreaking, it brings each of them to a deeper understanding of each other and their feelings, so it served a valuable purpose. For me, Never Marry a Cowboy was a perfect read and an equally perfect wrap-up to the series. Now I’m eagerly looking forward to seeing the next generation of these men’s families in the Daughters of Fortune, which also includes Kit and Ashton’s son, Devon, as the hero of the second book, To Marry an Heiress.

How he suffered with his past and then, with Ashton and her situation! Just heartbreaking! :( And Ashton was also a great heroine! She was really frail and delicate but, yet, strong and spirited.

    None of the books in this series did much for me, to be honest, especially this last one. I thought Kit was a reasonably complex character, but the heroine stood out to me so much that I can't recall her name. She was dying of consumption, apparently, although she never seemed sick, and in the end, I didn't understand either diagnosis or prognosis. She never became anything to me except a dying woman I knew perfectly well wasn't going to die because it's an HEA romance.

I was a bit overly stuffed on Western historicals when I started this, but I could still recognize that it was a beautiful poignant novel. Ashton is yearning for a zest of life despite being diagnosed with the death sentence of consumption; Kit is ever the honorable gentleman who grants all the women their dying wish. Talk about heartbreak: he was holding his mother and his first love (aka his brother's wife) in his arms when they died. And now somehow lands on being married to another dying woman. This many must enjoy the agony because that plot point was almost too unbelievable. I'm always a little wary of widow/widower/previous-love-died novels because it's hard to fall for this couple when you have this other love off screen but whose presence is always there. The Prologue of this book was heartbreaking. I seriously almost cried imagining not only watching your loved one die, but then realizing he was in love with his brother's wife and that he granted her wish of relieving her of her pain in the Michael Jackson way. Not really a spoiler because it's in the Prologue; it's more that the consequences of that action haunt him for years. I also questioned the choice to have the hero so perfect that they fall in love pretty quickly. It's human nature, I'm sure, but even though I'm reading romance for romance's sake, if the couple gets together with very little strife, I'm all - welp! What could possibly happen in the next 50% of the book?? I felt that lots of the action was forced for action's sake. Except - I loved the secondary love story and wish there had been more of it!! I love secondary love stories, even if they're series bait. This one wrapped up within the story, but I still loved it. No spoilers here:-) it's a fun surprise.

HEROINE has been in love with Kit ever since she laid eyes on him but the man was too in love with his brother's wife to ever spare her a glance. Years later, she realized that she's dying and harbored regrets in her chest that she will never marry. Her dear Brother, having read her innermost thoughts in her journal, asked Kit for a favour - to marry Ashton. She was appalled by what her brother did but even more surprised when Kit genuinely wanted to help her achieve her dream. OVERALL it wasn't bad, but it certainly wasn't adventurous or vastly interesting. It was a very poignant, mellow love story. It's kind of like a beginner's introduction to Historical Romance. The passion was there, but frankly I wasn't blown away by their chemistry to care too much.

    This book went from being one that I really enjoyed to one that I felt was merely OK. I feel like the author ran out of story about 3/4s the way through the required page count and added in the romantic subplot for the hero's twin brother to fill it out - which really deserved a book on its own. That's the biggest issue this story has. This could have easily been two entirely separate books - or at least a novel and a novella - but instead they were mashed into one, and each main storyline lost This book went from being one that I really enjoyed to one that I felt was merely OK.

    I give only 2 stars to this story. I was a bit disappointed by her behaviour after his confession. I mean, he is a good man and he was especially when he did what he had to. You can't blame him or treat him like trash only because you can't go over your "prejudices" about love and death. Sometimes they're strongly connected. Really disappointed by Ashton. And it was a bit boring the story overall ^^" I give only 2 stars to this story. I was a bit disappointed by her behaviour after his confession.

    I liked Ashton. Her physical weakness allowed her to be taken care of and pampered, and it was refreshing to read of a damsel being pampered. Their reconciliation and acceptance of each other dragged on though.

Would Kit and Ashton both be able to overcome the demons of their pasts, and get over what was currently going on in their lives that was effecting the present. Would they have a future? I was surprised at the end and was left with wanting a little bit more.

I don't know what else could describe how I felt at that moment.. this book was full of emotions! the cover did help a lot.. the models were very sensual :D I guess.. next to "When he was Wicked" by Julia Quinn, this is my favorite book and cover. they tie up.

    Goodness! This is such a beautiful ending to a stellar series! I simply could not put this book aside. Kit has been sent to Texas by his father because Kit is in love with his brother's wife. Before he leaves, she dies of cancer. Kit carries a tremendous amount of guilt about his love for Clarissa and her death. Kit is now the marshal of Fortune, Texas. A close friend asks Kit to marry his sister who is dying of consumption (tuberculosis) and will be dead in a few months. The brother, David, knows Goodness!

A close friend asks Kit to marry his sister who is dying of consumption (tuberculosis) and will be dead in a few months. The brother, David, knows his sister, Ashton, wants to marry before she dies and he knows she is smitten with Kit. There are several sub-plots that are as interesting as the main subject. The relationship between Kit and his twin, Christopher, is very realistic. I have known identical twins with this mental "telepathy." Research shows that the one thing that people wish they had is a twin! Kit and Christopher's relationship shows why. There is nothing more satisfying than having another person totally understand you - even without words. This is a very emotional tale; get out a fresh box of tissues! Rogues in Texas 1. A Rogue in Texas (1999) 2. Never Love a Cowboy (2000) 3. Never Marry a Cowboy (2001)

    This is the last of this Rogues in Texas western series, but I found it still lacked the oomph of her Texas Destiny series which I adored. This western romance is the story of young girl who is believed to be dying of consumption. Her brother, wishing to grant her last wish, asks the town of Fortune's (now) sheriff, Kit Montgomery to marry her in name only so that she can have a nice wedding day to remember until the day she dies.

After much hesitation, based on his history with his brother's dead wife, Kit agrees to marry her. Of course, they wind up falling in love which is exasperated by the fact she's expected to die within six months. They try to avoid too much intimacy but it's impossible after a while. Both are torn, but of course it all ends well, but only after much hand wringing and worry. I liked this better than book 2 in the series and it kept my attention, but overall it didn't have the emotional pull I believe it should have, based on the angsty storyline. 3.5/5 P.S. This needs a new cover design!

    Wow! this story just blew me away.. It was just perfect.. Christian was just amazing and I just fell for him hard. On the other hand Ashton was the least fav heroine in the series.. other two were much stronger characters. When I started the series.. I loved Gray, his simplicity just pulled you like a magnet and I loved the fact he reconciled with his father and all he accomplished. Then came Harry.. he charmed you with his easy charm and wit. I was glad he met his match in Jesse. but he was not s Wow! this story just blew me away.. It was just perfect.. Christian was just amazing and I just fell for him hard.

I loved Gray, his simplicity just pulled you like a magnet and I loved the fact he reconciled with his father and all he accomplished. Then came Harry.. he charmed you with his easy charm and wit. I was glad he met his match in Jesse. but he was not simple. he was complex and proud. It was a pleasure seeing him face all situations. Lastly, Christian.. *sighs* he just steals your heart with his attention to detail. wow! It was just beautiful seeing three different men lead their life and make new beginnings.. just wonderful. thank you Lorraine for three heart breaking stories. Even after completing the series little bit of three wonderful heroes will stay with me. Must read for those who love strong characters with good story. There were loopholes but still they were good.

    Missed Lorraine Heath’s writing and decided to reread this book as I remembered this as a very well written book. It indeed was! The reason I love Heath’s books is because she always makes her characters very deep people, as if they’re real people. I really loved Kit & Ashton and just wished for more. Where’s the epilogue of them having a fun family day T-T I really liked how they bonded over fun times and it was really heartwarming to see them fall in love with one another.

Where’s the epilogue of them having a fun family day T-T I really liked how they bonded over fun times and it was really heartwarming to see them fall in love with one another. It was also bittersweet, because Ashton was dying so they made every moment together last and there was even angst in there. I even cried a little. The dialogue was great as it wasn’t about shallow topics, but deeper topics which allows them to get to know one another. I do love a good emotional book. It’s really hard to find an author who can pull at my heartstrings and only Heath‘s writing can do that. As much as I loved the book, I have to give this a 4.5 stars because I couldn’t care much about Christopher & Elizabeth at the back and just really wanted to see more moments between Kit & Ashton.
