    Peyton Muldoon is trying to resurrect for family┬┐s horse farm. A

    Peyton Muldoon is trying to resurrect for family’s horse farm. Although Peyton has been the only family member that has stayed to care for the ranch, she discovers that the ranch was left to her and her two siblings. Fighting to rebuild the ranch’s reputation, Peyton realize that she must ask for help from a famous trainer, Redford (Red) Callahan. 

    Red Callahan is one of the most sought after horse trainers in the business, giving him an unlimited amount of job offers. When this tom-boy with attitude shows up requesting his help at the M-Star, he is instantly interested in more than training horses. He knows he should run the other way but something is pulling him toward M-Star and Peyton Muldoon.

    This is a sweet story about family, trust and finding love. The characters are strong, courageous and although they have lots of family issues...they genuinely love each other. In the end, Taking the Reins was a quick read, with a great heartwarming story and just the right amount of steamy romantic encounters. I do look forward to Peyton’s siblings Bea’s and Trace’s stories. 4 stars!

    This ARC copy of Taking the Reins was given to me by Netgalley and Kensington Publishing Corp. in exchange for an honest review. Publish Date December 24, 2012.

    Enjoyed It!

    Story, character and writing all were very good... Didn't quite reach a 5 star but I did enjoy it and read Book 2 Bucking the Rules and will read Busting Loose (due out in December)... I like cowboy romance every once in a while and this series gets the job done... Love Peyton and hope she and Red (short for Redford) wind up married somewhere down the road.
