Overview

Denied entrance into vet school because of her gender, fiery and
determined Jillian Matthews trained at her father's side and then headed
west to Montana Territory after answering an ad using only her father's
initials and last name. She is convinced that her skills will
override local ranchers prejudice. She's wrong and handsome Wade Parker,

Jillian refuses to back down and sets out to win Wade's
approval. Soon that's not all she hopes to win.

Widower Wade Parker is furious the new vet he helped hire is a woman. The

"A Rancher's Surrender" by Michelle Beattie is a sweet historical romance. This is Jillian Matthews and Wade Parker's story. Jillian has always wanted to be a veterinarian but women were not allowed entrance into vet school. Jillian's dad was a sought after vet and trained other vets. Jillian trained under her dad. She took a vet job in the you would probably have to Montana territory in hopes that they would be more accepting of a woman vet. Jillian discovered that even in the west Montana territory they still didn't accept wthe idea of a woman vet. I admired Jillian's determination to stand up for what she wants. Wade is a widower raising his daughter while trying to make his ranch successful. He wasn't too happy to discover that the vet he hired was a women. Plus, the sight of Jillian woke up parts of him that thought had died. Will Wade and the community give Jillian a chance to prove herself as a vet? Will Jillian and Wade take a chance on love? This is a sweet romance of two people that are perfect for each other. I enjoyed Wade and Jillian's story. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

Jillian almost begged him to make love to her even tho he was up front about not making promises to her and she agreedso she cant really blame him for that. His attitude tho makes him seem like a jerk.

The Rancher's Surrender was a very enjoyable read. It had a consistent pace that kept you captivated to see how it was all going to pull together. Jillian was outcast from the town as she had a man's profession in 1882 as a vet, which was just wrong and the first rancher she assisted (Wade) cow's died after childbirth, which lead the town and Wade at first to believe she shouldn't be a vet, with time Wade sees his error and works to support her, while quite a few town folks still try to run her out of town. I really like how the author pulled the story together at the end and turned around the town's feelings. I don't want to spoil anything. Hoping their will be a story about Silver and Shane. I received an ARC for a honest and fair review.

I really enjoyed this one! I'm don't usually enjoy historicals but the premise of this one called to me. Strong female lead that is willing to do anything to live her life her way. That's what Jillian Mathews does to get her opportunity to work as the veterinarian she's been trained to be. No she didn't go to school because she wasn't allowed but she worked with her father and was as good as any school trained vet. When she shows up on a Montana ranch she's ready for the rancher's reaction when he finds out she's a woman. She stands firm and fights for her chance. Then when the townspeople start to turn on her, Wade (the rancher) stands by her side ready to protect and claim her as his own. This is a wonderfully written story and one I would definitely recommend.

Great start to a new series of the "Wild, Wild, West". Jillian needs a new start from her old life in PA, so she heads to MT to be a towns new veterinarian. She quickly discovers that it will be tough for her to do her job, when most town folks believe a woman should not be a Doctor, in a man's profession. Luckily, she finds a few friends that will help her acclimate to her new life. I received a copy from the author and am voluntarily leaving an honest and unbiased review.
