A Kiss for Cade by Lori Copeland

Oh, I loved this book. I don't know that I've ever read any of Lori Copeland's books. I've seen them and thought they'd be wonderful books, so I jumped at the chance to review this book.
Copeland has given this book some humor in places. Your laughing in one spot and serious in others.
There are many characters you meet and love.
Of course you have Zoe and Cade the main characters
Zoe a feisty, spitfire, red-head, widow-at times even a bit of a wild cat, ready to claw anyone that hurts Addy's, her friend, four children. She can be proud and determined at times. Will she let Cade Kolby waltz back into her life after leaving 15 years ago promising to return for her?
Cade a handsome, lean bounty hunter. He's an unforgettable man with with his midnight blue eyes and a heart of gold, helping those in need. He has a way of being persuasive. Been gone from Winterborn 15 years, but still has an effect on Zoe as he waltz back into the town summed by his now deceased sister, Addy. Would he be able to gain Zoe's trust again?
Aunt Laticia Wiseman an old, domineering, hard headed, eccentric-but not senile woman. She likes to let her cane talk-when Aunt Laticia's waves her cane everyone listens.
You'll love Abraham, Laticia's driver and Little Missy will worm her way into your heart with her toothless lisp.
Only disappointment I had was there were curse words used though out the book. I have a policy that if there are more than three curse words I must let my readers know they are in the book, so I must hold to this. I give this book two thumbs up and I can't wait for book 2.

When Cade Kolby rode his horse out of town hot on the trail of a wanted man, he didn't wonder how he would leave the bounty hunter lifestyle behind.

Now the deaths of his sister and brother-in-law prompt a return visit and Cade once again sees Zoe, the fiery redhead he left so many years ago. He promised Zoe he'd come back. Seeing the beauty that has grown both inside and out, watching her love the children his sister left behind, Cade wonders anew why he never did return. Yet a bounty hunter cannot form the kind of ties he now desires. Wanted men will only see his loved ones as pawns to hurt Cade.

So Cade must walk away again, this time from both the woman he loves and his sister's children. There's no other way. Or is there?

I thought that “A Kiss for Cade” was great! Lori Copeland is a fantastic author!

I have a weakness for a great western and this one was pretty good. While the abundant loss and grief in the story was disheartening at times – there were many interesting and delightful characters.

Oops! By "more in-depth review" I meant more in-depth compared to my brief comment.

Sorry if that was unclear.
