How can rancher Jarrod show Cassidy that a cowboy's kiss lasts forever?

Book info
About the book:

 Kissed by a Cowboy (Thomas Nelson, February 2016)

Cassidy was looking for a home and a place to belong . . . not for a cowboy to steal her heart.

Having lived through her parents' endless string of "matrimonial bliss gone wrong," Cassidy Starr knows when the odds are not in her favor. Divorced and humiliated, her faith on rocky ground, Cassidy is through with love. She's been bucked off that horse far too many times. Instead, she returns to Wishing Springs, Texas, and the rundown farm she's inherited from her great aunt Roxie. She'll reopen the strawberry farm and a bed & breakfast and follow in her aunt's footsteps, remaining forever-independent, happy . . . and single.

Rancher Jarrod Monahan's hands are full running the ranch, looking after his ailing grandfather, and chasing down a group of rustlers on the loose. He's pushed his longing for a family to the bottom of his list of priorities. Besides, he was in love once but ran scared and lost his shot at happiness. But suddenly, the biggest regret of his life has moved in next door with a wounded heart, determined to become a spinster . . . and that's a challenge that Jarrod can't pass up.

Jarrod sets his mind to breaking down the walls around Cassidy's stubborn heart. How can he show her that a cowboy's kiss lasts forever? For the good folks of Wishing Springs, falling in love has never been so much fun to witness.

My Review:
I loved this return to Wishing Springs with Debra's characters and have so enjoyed this series!  Cassidy is done with love and knows it is not in the cards for her.  She returns to Wishing Springs, a place  where she was happy at one at one time and is determined to live the legacy that was left to her.  However, Jarrod was not part of this plan.  Jarrod and Cassidy are both stubborn people, each with their own set of baggage, but also missing out on something in their lives, a void that needs to be filled. 
This is a really fun read and a book that you will not want to stop once you start reading!  I was immediately drawn into Cassidy's life and the story as Cassidy returns "home" and is determined not to get emotional, alluding to what is below the surface.  Cassidy and Jarrod are both characters whom I enjoyed spending time with and I found myself empathizing with them and cheering for them.  Aunt Roxie is a person whom I would have loved to meet from her influence on Cassidy and the role that she played in her life, an amazing person whom Cassidy needed in her life and she continues to remember and draw strength from her memories. 
I highly recommend this book and this series.
