Publisher's Summary

A simple cowboy in love with a surgeon. A decade of unrequited love. A hopeless, one-sided romance. Except sometimes, if you’re patient, God writes your love story. 

Ethan Shuff had spent a miserable childhood with an abusive father and a mother addicted to drugs and men. 

No one had ever even pretended he wasn’t in the way, or that he was wanted. 

Not until Race and Penny Steiner opened up their home and their lives to him. When they adopted a group of six siblings, Ethan stayed on the farm to help and to be a good example for the kids. He never intended to fall in love with the oldest sibling, Ruby. 

Ruby Barclay became responsible for her siblings at age 16. She fought the state, social workers, and anyone else who stood in her way, until she had her brothers and sisters reunited and together under one roof. 

With that mission accomplished, she will let nothing stand in the way of her next dream - becoming an accomplished surgeon. Maybe with more competent medical care, her parents wouldn’t have died. 

She doesn’t have time to mess around and she’s not interested in silly boyfriends. If she gets married, it’s going to be to someone who shares her dream of saving lives. 

But the dark eyes of the boy who’d fought for her when she was a teen haunt her nights, and maybe under her drive and ambition, she could admit that she still dreams of her cowboy’s kiss.

Great book

Another great Christian book by Jessie Gussman and Jay Dyess did a great job narrating. Her characters are so real you feel that they are real people you are getting to know. Really loved this story, especially as you got glimpses into Ruby and Ethan's past and how they didn't let that define them. I love this whole series - this is probably my favourite and I especially loved Ethan's unconditional love of Ruby, no matter how hard it was for him, he always wanted the best for her.

The Power Of Love

This was a lovely story about the redemptive powers of love. I enjoyed the tale about Ethan, the abused boy whose life was changed by Race and Penny's involvement, and Ruby who fought to keep her family together after the death of her parents. I love and recommend Jessie Gussman's novels. Jay Dyess' narration was awesome as his style and voices bring the characters to life. I was given a free copy of the audiobook and I have voluntarily left this review.

Enjoyable listen

Listening to this book was wonderful. Ruby and Ethan live and follow their beliefs. Will they believe that they are supposed to be together? I received a copy and this is my honest review.

finally

Ruby's day is falling apart and Ethan is there for her. He has always been there for her and showing her how much he cares and loves her without saying the words. They have both lost so much in the past. Loved how strong they both were but in different ways. His trust in the Lord and in His timing was so inspirational to me. A different kind of romance but a romance nonetheless. Ethan is the kind of man I would want my daughters to marry. Great narrator and one of my favorites. He always does an amazing job of switching voices.

Cowboy's kiss

this story has what could be considered a taboo trope, but done in a mostly old fashioned way. odd explination, I know, but once you listen, hopefully it makes sense. Jay Dyess always does a fantastic job. I think the more books he does by this author, the better he gets

Love is what matters

On what was to be her wedding day, Ruby narrowly escaped what she thought was the marriage she wanted. Will Ruby finally see the man who's always been there for her has also been in love with her for years? Will she also realize that Love is necessary and the most important part in marriage after all?
I have both read and listened to Dreaming of her Cowboy's Kiss and while Jessie Gussman's books are already amazing on their own when you add Jay Dyess's narration they are made even better!

Unwavering love

Dreaming of Her Cowboy’s Kiss is a sweet and clean romance appropriate for about any age. I’ve read/listened to every Gussman book I have found and I’ve loved every single one. Each one has something you can take from it, as well as just being a really good read. This book feels different in a WOW kind of way. It’s message needs to heard in these unprecedented times. The takeaway, for me, is God has a plan and ultimately that’s all we need to know. We don’t know how or when, but all of the tough times and lows we’ve felt has a purpose and it will get better. We need to trust, believe, let Him take control, stay positive, and keep spreading His love. The author has a much better style of saying that though. She does it through a beautiful storyline and vivid, realistic characters and even uses some humor. She has given us the gift of my favorite narrator again. Yay! His performances bring fantastic, well written books to a new level of awesomeness. He gives each character life and somehow makes what is written even more enjoyable with his timing and expression. I don’t know how he does it, but I enjoy every second!
