Read Free Western Romance Novels

The wide open spaces are the backdrop for the western romance novel. Whether it is the handsome cowboy trying to catch the attention of the beautiful woman, the challenges of the city-slicker trying to fit into western life or the man or woman looking for wide open spaces, the characters are often not expecting to find romance.

The scene of a western romance novel could take place anywhere from the mid-west or western United States in the 1800s to current times in the outback of Australia. Western romance novels are just one of the many types of free online romance novels on PublicBookshelf.
