45 Fine Cowboy Romance Books to Read

According to National Day Calendar, today is Cowboy Day (yeehaw)! It’s celebrated every year on the fourth Saturday of July.

If you haven’t combed through Amazon’s romance section, cowboys are a pretty big deal. The biggest names in the cowboy genre include Diana Palmer, Lori Wilde, Linda Lael Miller, and Carolyn Brown.  I don’t think I’ve read any cowboy romances yet, but I have a few paranormal ones on my to-read list

As part of today’s celebration, here are 45 fine cowboy romance books to read and enjoy.
