The Reluctant Rancher

( 6 )

Overview

Luke Tanner was a hard man with a painful past. It seemed as if every single citizen of Fiddler Creek wanted something from the wealthy rancher. He'd learned early on not many cared to see past his looks and sour attitude and discover the man beneath.

So when the generously curved Mary Carter hit him up for a loan to save her fledgling business, he made her a short-term proposition she couldn't refuse. Only the more time the reluctant rancher ...

Overview

Luke Tanner was a hard man with a painful past. It seemed as if every single citizen of Fiddler Creek wanted something from the wealthy rancher. He'd learned early on not many cared to see past his looks and sour attitude and discover the man beneath.

So when the generously curved Mary Carter hit him up for a loan to save her fledgling business, he made her a short-term proposition she couldn't refuse. Only the more time the reluctant rancher spends with the lovely Mary, the more he starts to think about a long-term relationship.

Mary Carter had fantasized about Luke Tanner since her first glimpse of the veritable mountain of a man with a perpetual scowl. She'd never been brave enough to approach him until circumstances forces her to seek his help.

The Reluctant Rancher is the story of two individuals who have never experienced the soul stirring passion of true love-until they find each other.

Meet the Author

Joann Baker and Patricia Mason love romance - sweet, sassy, with a little heat and always with a happily-ever-after. Their stories feature that sweet and sassy heroine who can bring that alpha male to his knees, whether he's a cowboy, lawman, or billionaire rancher. Working together isn't as difficult as one would imagine. In fact, they are often accused of sharing the same brain. They love to hear from their readers and nothing thrills them more than a five star review (hint, hint!)

    Sweet Contemporary Romance with REAL People!

    Sometimes you just need a good old fashioned romance, you know the kind, where the standoffish, wealthy rancher can’t help but notice the “full figured” and totally capable woman. Of course, she also notices him, but between the two of them, they are too damaged emotionally to actually take the plunge and risk finding true love. The Reluctant Rancher by that dynamic duo, Patricia Mason and Joann Baker is a true romantic’s dream! Luke and Mary strike a deal so Mary can earn some much needed money to start a business. Their interaction is often like oil and water, but they are drawn to each other like moths to a flame. Leave it to Luke’s wise old grandpa to help fan that flame, because isn’t finding true love what life is all about?
    These two authors have created a fun, light romance that feels good! It’s so nice to have two “regular” characters, flawed, less than perfect alone, but together have a chance to be something amazing! For me, it wasn’t so much the grand finale at the end; it was the fun on my reading journey to that last page that makes this such a highly recommended book! Who doesn’t like a feisty heroine and a rugged hero with insecurities that need to be kissed out of them?

    I received a review copy in exchange for my honest review.
