My words to myself were Jun 21, Linda Clarke rated it it was amazing. I thoroughly enjoyed this delightful story. The last person Zoe Bradshaw wanted to see was a sweetheart from 15 years ago. He had once promised that he would return but he never lived up to his promise. Now he is back home, trying to find a decent place for his late sister's kids to live. Seeing Cade after all these years makes her heart remember how she once felt, but Zoe is furious because he had not kept his promise to her. She will not allow her heart to be broken once again. As Lori Copeland I thoroughly enjoyed this delightful story.
As Lori Copeland developed each character, I found myself enjoying the story more and more. Zoe is a fiery woman with lots of spunk. She's not about to let anyone push her around. And Cade is so easy to fall in love with. He's such a man The four children are absolutely adorable and you can imagine what they're like in your mind's eye. A few other characters bring laughter to many scenes, which makes the book hard to put down. Lori has a real talent for creating humor and romance in the most delightful ways.
She has you laughing one moment and sighing the next.

I did not enjoy this one as much as the first in her western sky series. It felt heavy and the characters' choices were hard for me in parts. I did love how she brought the community together to support the Wiseman children, Cade and Zoe in the end. Looking forward to 3.

The chemistry between Cade and Zoe was excellent. My only complaint was that at one point, which I won't exactly specify because it would be a spoiler, there was plot twist that seemed cheesy. Had that part not seemed so cheesy, it might have been humorous. Overall, A Kiss for Cade is enjoyable and I recommend it to anyone who enjoys historical romances. Mar 26, Annalisa rated it really liked it. This was another good clean western romance from the Western Sky Series.
It seems like the only similarities in this series is that they take place in the west. None of the characters or towns are they same at all. I look forward to reading the third book. The last person Zoe Bradshaw wants to see is Cade.
