Part of the Cactus Creek Cowboys Series
He Knows She Can Never Be His…
Logan Holstock, oldest of three brothers orphaned on the Santa Fe Trail, has always been content knowing his brothers were alive and happy somewhere in the vast and brutal West—until he learns he may be dying. Certain he has little time left, Logan sets out to find them and end his days near a family he’s never known...and stumbles across a strong yet vulnerable widow who makes him yearn for what can never be his.
Logan knows he shouldn’t love Sibyl Spencer—he couldn’t bear leaving her a widow all over again. But as he finds himself drawn deeper into the lives of this small Western town, he can’t escape the longing to find peace in her arms. When he discovers that his death sentence is anything but, Logan swears he will do whatever it takes to prove himself to the woman he loves...and show he believes their love is worth fighting for.

Leigh Greenwood gives the reader all the things expected in a westward trek to new lands. He involves the reader in actions that make the heart jump up into one’s throat at times.

To Have and To Hold is a keeper to be enjoyed more than once.
- Long and Short Reviews
Leigh Greenwood brings romance to an action filled western worthy of reading. The storyline is filled with conflict and compromise making TO HAVE AND TO HOLD captivating and enjoyable.. The setting is well researched and the desert comes alive with Greenwood's wonderful detail descriptions. The plot twists are unexpected and readers will be happily satisfied with the outcome. TO HAVE AND TO HOLD is a rewarding read with a great theme and well-written characters many will enjoy.
- Fresh Fiction
I have read most of the books that Leigh Greenwood has written…some twice. I loved each book that I’ve read and so I was sure “To Have and To Hold” would be no different. I was right. It is the first book in his new series “Cactus Creek Cowboys” that takes place along the Santa Fe Trail in 1865, just after the Civil War ended. I recommend any novel by Leigh Greenwood. He is one of my favorite authors.
- The Night Owl Reviews Team
5 Stars is not enough to convey my true feelings for this book. The depth of the characters, the well-crafted plot, the emotion evoked by every perfect word. Rarely do I find a book that I never want to end. If you like historical westerns with a perfectly crafted romance (very low on the steamy scale) go preorder this book!

To Love and to Cherish
Greenwood’s talent for emotional inner conflict shines in the second book of the Cactus Creek Cowboys series when a widow challenges her dead husband’s legacy and the expectations of the entire town.
Who knew a desert snowstorm could be so sexy? Find out why the heat gets turned up when the temperature goes down in To Love And To Cherish.
To Love and to Cherish is another western historical love story that is a keeper. Intriguing, compelling events paced just right, subtle character development, a touch of humor, and a hint of secrets kept this reader turning pages. The subplots are like icing on a cake. They enhance the total flavor of the story. Best of all, the love story sparkles with both tears and laughter.
Long & Short Romance Reviews
There's something about Laurie that awakens every protective instinct Jared has...and when all hell breaks loose, there's nothing and no one who'll be able to keep this cowboy from her side.
Night Owl Reviews
A gripping tale of renewal. To Love and To Cherish is a well written and endearing story and I hope to read more from Leigh Greenwood in the future.
Romance at Random
Jared is a wonderfully sexy hero, and he knows what he wants and goes after it. Laurie is vulnerable, but learns to love herself and grows throughout the story. Secondary characters bring conflict and humor to the storyline. Leigh Greenwood has once again proven he can write a compelling and romantic Western, and I recommend To Love And To Cherish to readers looking for a romantic and adventurous Western.
To Love and To Cherish is the type of Western romance I love; a smart heroine and a kind hero find love in a small town filled with lovable side characters and plausible villains. I look forward to the next installment.
