COWGIRL ROMANCES "Ranch of Riddles"

Nothing says I Love You like gunpowder, horse blankets, and guys who don't bathe for days, right?
Someone thought so back in the 1950s, when two of the most popular genres--romances and Westerns were combined into Western romances (or Romantic Westerns) in both comics and prose fiction.
At one point, there were almost a dozen titles in this sub-genre before they all faded out in 1961.
Since then, the occasional "romance at a dude ranch" or somesuch has popped up, but they're usually set in the present, not in the Old West.
This particular never-reprinted tale was from Cowgirl Romance #12 (1953) and illustrated by Maurice Whitman, a prolific mainstay of comics from 1940 to 1983 who could do any genre well.
