    A warm-your-heart cowboy romance!

    I loved this story! If you're a fan of the second chance romance tropes, sexy hardworking cowboys, and western romances, then you'll
    love reading Raining in my Heart.

    Julie McKay's life as of late has been unfulfilling. Sure, she can pretend all she wants that life is wonderful, but something is missing.
    When she receives word of her father's passing, Julie leaves the city-life and returns to the family ranch. Reconnecting with her sisters is easy. Confronting 
    Cade Weston again? Not so much! Will secrets keep them apart? Or will fate help her find that missing "something" in her life.

    If you've ever read Montana Sky by Nora Roberts, you'll love Rita's 1st book in the McKay's series. At its root is the importance of family (especially sisters),
    love, and connection. Can't wait to read about Julie's sister, Letty, in Ring of Fire.

    PG Romance/Hot Cover

    Well the cover is HOT! I give "Raining In My Heart" a 2.5. I like parts of the store and other parts I just could not stand. It had a little to much drama and long winded conversations that repeated themselves. To much sexual tension between the main charactors and not enough release. Julie just made me frustrated with her feelings running all over the place and her regret. Cade on the other had is a sweet caring cowboy, whom I feel for at the beginning. I enjoyed Caleb the old cowhand the girls "deceased" father hired; thou we all can figure out whom he is right from the start.

    COULD HAVE BEEN BETTER! This was an o.k. read - no passion - just talk about it. It could have been a better book if about 1/3 was cut out because it repeated the same thing over and over! I think everyone has figured out what the deceased dad had/has in mind. I am not going to be reading anymore of this series, because of the reviews on the other books. Again, as others have stated, an Epilogue would have helped a lot, but of course there isn't one, because we are to buy the rest of the books in the series. (ljb)

    Needed a really good editor

    I don't read books to find contextural errors, but they leep out and disrupt this story. It feels a bit disjointed. While people MIGHT behave this way, the author never creates a sense of believability with their feelings or behavior.

    great book

    a great story for this series...would recommend it to everyone. My only comment ( that I mentioned on the others in this series) would prefer adding an "Epilog"....I think this is a great touch to any and all storied...I especially liked for you book "Nick's Baby" which was by far one of the best books I have read in years...

    Rated PG romance

    I enjoyed this western romance but I felt that the dialogue and topics of conversation by a 9-10 year old little girl, no matter how precocious, were a bit unrealistic. Between that and the fact that there were only a few actual kisses in the story when there was supposed to be such passion, the book became boring. 396 B&N pages.
