He wanted to be left in peace...

West Morgan knows all about second chances. After bouncing from foster home to foster home, he finally landed at the Rawlings Ranch as a teenager. There he found a home, something he'd never thought possible. Now an adult, he realizes he's been given much more: a family and, most importantly, peace. But when his mentor dies and leaves the property divided among his foster brothers and his mentor's daughter, Tara Rawlings, the fragile future he's built for himself is threatened.

She wanted to be free of her past...

Tara Rawlings swore she'd never end up with someone like her father, a man completely focused on the ranch to the exclusion of his loved ones. She created a new life for herself in San Francisco, running an interior design company and getting married, then divorced. When she returns to settle her father's estate, she finds that her birthright is in jeopardy. And the only way to save it is to work with West Morgan, the one man she has always resented—and always found irresistible.

Can they save the ranch without killing each other ... or falling in love?

This is the 2nd book I've read written by Megan Ryder; she has done a great job at writing a good book; I can’t wait to read more of her books. The story line caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book. I loved the chemistry between the characters.

A lovely start to the Redemption Ranch series. Tara gets a call from her nemesis that shatters her already messed up world and turns it upside down. She must now return home to deal with not only her father's death but also the three foster brothers and the ranch that she left behind. West now has to deal with not only losing his mentor but possibly losing the only real home that he and his two foster brothers have ever known. Imagine everyone's surprise when they learn that all four are equal owners of Rawlings Ranch. Now they must all come together and figure out what is best for them and the ranch, but in order to accomplish that they will have to deal with old insecurities and assumptions and forge new beginnings. Tara and West's struggles to deal with past hurts, a growing attraction and wrong assumptions is a good beginning to this new series. I urge you to read this book to see if Tara can finally find her true home and to see if West can finally realize that he has all he needs and that he can finally be free of his fear of abandonment. I cannot wait to read the rest of the series to learn more about Chase and Ty and the continuing story of Tara and West. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book.

A story of second chances. Tara has returned home after the death of her father, only to find out that she has to share the ranch with the foster boys that were helping on the ranch. West has been tossed from foster home to foster home through his young years and has finally found home on the ranch, but now he has the fight on his life to save it. As they but heads they soon can't deny the chemistry between them. This book brought out so many emotions, but with unhappy childhoods, both stubborn attitudes and both with trust issues. They both learned to grow from their mistakes and find happiness in the end. I highly recommend this story. So looking forward to reading the next book in the series!

Tara and West couldn't stand each other. She thought he took her father's attention away from her and became the son he never had and he thought she was a spoiled princess who couldn't make time to talk to and visit her father. They have to find a way to coexist and save the ranch when her father dies and leaves it to Tara, and three foster kids he had taken in: West, Ty, and Chase. There was plenty of sparks between Tara and West and liked her ideas to diversify by bringing in guests to camp, fish, and live the ranch life. Ty the horse whisperer and Chase the professional bull rider were interesting characters and I look forward to them having their own romances.

Tara and West’s love story in A Cowboy’s Salvation by Megan Ryder, book one in her Redemption Ranch series, reminds us that there is more than one way to define home and family. Tara Rawlings didn’t understand why her father sent her away to boarding school after the death of her mother. True, he cared more about the ranch than her or her mother, but the ranch was home. He even seemed to replace her with those boys he fostered. She never did move back, at least until the death of her father. It’s at that point she discovers that her birthright is not just hers, only a fourth, and it is in danger of having to be sold off to pay taxes. West Morgan grew up bouncing from foster home to foster home until he landed at the Rawlings Ranch. He not only found a home but also a family. When his mentor dies and leaves the property divided between his two foster brothers and his mentor’s daughter, Tara, the shaky future he built is threatened. West Morgan knows all about second chances. After bouncing from foster home to foster home, he finally landed at the Rawlings Ranch as a teenager. There he found a home, something he’d never thought possible. Now an adult, he realizes he’s been given much more: a family and, most importantly, peace. But when his mentor dies leaves the property divided among his foster brothers and his mentor’s daughter, Tara Rawlings, the fragile future he’s built for himself is threatened. The only way to save the ranch is with Tara and West working together to find some ways to bring in paying visitors; fishermen, hunters, a spa, or even a B&B. Hopefully, they can work together without killing each or maybe find a forever love. The attraction between Tara and West is electric and off the charts. The air sizzles when they are in the same space. There is definitely a fine line between love and hate and one’s family is not just by blood but often the family one creates. This is a theme that runs through the story. It’s also an important reminder in life. As Tara and West save the ranch they discover much about who they truly are as well as what is important in life. Ms. Ryder wrote a wonderful and sexy story that is definitely not to be missed. She provided a tale rich with sexual chemistry, amusing banter, and endearing characters giving Tara and West a chance to have forever love and be a family. I highly recommend A Cowboy’s Salvation to other readers and look forward to the next book in this series. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

This is a highly emotional heartwarming story. Tara resents the three foster boys that her father took in when she was younger and was not living at home. She felt that they were more important to him than she. West was one of those foster kids and felt that he finally had a family. On the death of her father, they come to find that they have to work together to save the ranch. The characters in this story were believable and very well written. The emotions that run through the story sear your heart as you read of sadness, joy, and love. I am looking forward to the next books in this series.

The start of a new series called Redemption Ranch and I want to read the next book. West Morgan came to the Rawlings Ranch as a teen from foster care and fell in love with the ranch and the man that took him in. Tara Rawlings has come home after her Dad died and just wants to get rid of the ranch but she is in for a surprise she only owns part of it. West,Chase and Ty the other men who where mentored on the ranch along with Tara now own shares in it. A great storyline with a story that flowed smoothly from page to page.

This is a wonderful heartwarming story of regret and redemption. Tara's father died, and she's back to the family ranch for his funeral, and to tie up loose ends. The most annoying person in the entire world and her foster brother, West, is still there, and still a major thorn in her side. She's had a rough past year, with the end of her marriage, and estrangement from her father, but she puts her best face forward. When her father's will is read, he's left equal parts of the ranch to her, West, and two other men that he fostered. For whatever reason, West sees it as his mission in life to push as many of Tara's buttons as he can. Tara has misconceptions about the guys, particularly West, as they have about her as well. I loved watching the transformation of Tara and West's relationship. This is my first book from this author, and it won't be the last. I'm looking forward to more books in this series.

Tara is forced to come home and face the demons of her past and present. I liked that she had this strong head on her and she really seems to take everything in stride. I was however not a huge fan of West I kind of had a love/hate relationship with him. I did like Ty and Chase they always seem to be your typical little brothers who like to pick on the older one. The story did get to me emotionally because with everything Tara faced my heart just broke for her. There is some cursing and sex in this book so may not be suitable for all readers. Over all I enjoyed reading about these fun characters. I hope that Ty and Chase find their happily ever afters. I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.

This is one of those books that touches me deep down in my soul and had me wondering why about so many things. This book brought me to tears in so many places and also had me smiling in others. It was an wonderful book that kept me deeply connected to all the characters and wanting to know more about them. This book is based in Montana on a Ranch. Tara was sent away from home as a young teen after the death of her mother to go to school and never really came back to live much on the ranch. When she did it was to discover her dad has taken in slowly 3 young men, her age and younger to foster. They stayed on the ranch through out years while Tara married and moved on with her life. This book is what happens when Douglas passes away and what happens to the ranch and between the 4 of them. Life is never what you thing it is at face value. What the boys thought they saw as a soiled Princess might not actually be what was really Tara. Tara on the other had despised her foster brothers for the places they had in her father's life. Not fully understanding WHY it was they were there, not why she was where she ended up. A chance at redemption is a journal only discovered after death can set the record straight...one can hope.

A heart-warming and promising start to a new series! When Tara Rawlings goes home after her fathers death, she discovers the family ranch was left equally to her and her foster brothers. Both sides have viewed the other in the wrong light while growing up, making them butt heads now. I loved this story and it's genuine message of "don't judge a book by it's cover", which everyone needs reminded of once in a while. I can't wait for the next book in the Redemption Ranch series!

This a great start to the Redemption Ranch. It definitely took me a long time to warm up to West. For about the first third of the book, I thought he was unnecessarily mean to Tara. He was so hot and cold and I was thinking that I was never going to like him. Then West and Tara started having actual conversations instead of snippy little arguments. And West became someone that I thought could actually fit with Tara. The more these two got to know each other, the more I thought they fit so perfectly together. West and Tara, along with Ty and Chase, became a wonderful team that was going to make the ranch more than they ever thought possible. I can't wait to see where this series goes.

Beautiful and compelling journey to facing regrets and finding your true home. Tara’s world has been shaken by divorce, betrayal and then death. She is a fighter, working her way through the pain while building her business. When she has to return to her childhood home, she must face the past and find a way to heal from her father pushing her away. When she learns that her father left the ranch to her and the three foster boys, he took in years ago, well, she feels betrayed even more. Why wouldn’t her dad want her to carry the family legacy of the ranch? West only knew abandonment and hurt as a child but one lucky break leads him to The Russell Ranch and a true home. He found his purpose working on the ranch and appreciated the relationship he had with Douglas, Tara’s dad. From day 1, he was told to stay away from Tara but he always had a crush on her. When she ends up back at the ranch, will he embrace the feelings and pursue a relationship with her? Now Tara is at a true crossroads, she has a love/hate relationship with the ranch. Will connecting with West and the other boys help her find her true purpose? These two drew me in and I felt the pain and hurt they had weathered over the years as they fought their way through to a brighter future on the other side.

Tara Rawlings’s father dies. She has been a mostly absent daughter but expects to receive her legacy: the ranch. Seems her father had other ideas and split the ranch four ways: amongst her and the three foster boys (now men) that her took in years ago. Expect arguments, town shunning for Tara, a hero and lots of mixed up emotions and messages. It is a terrific push me-pull you romance because of all the misinterpretations and misunderstandings that Tara feels from her father’s seeming rejection of her and of her right to the family ranch.

A great start to a new series. It might start as heart breaking but will turn into heart warming. A Cowboy's Salvation by Megan Ryder. This story will leave you with a smile. The story of coming back and possible second chances. Enjoyable character development and storyline. Look forward to reading the next story in The Redemption Ranch series.

This story put me through an emotional wringer. I wasn’t taken to a place of full-out ugly crying, but it was a near thing. It’s still going to be a little while before I level back out. Tara was such a complex character to read. Every time one of the townsfolk made assumptions about her, my heart hurt just a little bit more for her. I both loved and hated West. When he was behaving like a jerk he was in a whole new class of alpha-hole. But when he was being sweet and caring, he was everything my best book boyfriend fantasies are made of. I’ve started to fall in love with Chase and Ty now as well, and I can’t wait to read their stories. I received a complimentary advanced copy of this book from the author.
