"Lasso Her Heart" is a short novella by Anna Schmidt. It is an older book. You have the modern day cowboy and the city girl who have both suffered losses. They both have guilt over the loved ones' deaths. She does not want ot get close to anyone, whereas he has learned to "go with the flow". She keeps pushing him away but he sees the vuneribility in her eyes and keeps trying to help. She has to overcome her fears before he can get close. It has a good storyline and flows smoothly. It is a very good book and I would recommend reading it.
