Ian by Chris Keniston

Welcome to Ian, book 9 in Farraday Country, a twist on the favorite 7 Brides for 7 Brothers theme set in cattle-ranching west Texas, with all the friends, family and fun that fans have come to expect from USA TODAY Bestselling author Chris Keniston.

For Texas Ranger Ian Farraday, nothing beats catching bad guys, except family time in Tuckers Bluff. When fate steps in and brings him face-to-face with one curvy--and unforgettable--damsel in distress, all it takes is a stray puppy and a few missing cows to turn his ranch vacation upside down.

Attending a wedding isn't supposed to land Kelly Morgan in jail. Lucky for her, the Farraday men are always ready to save the day--especially one long, tall Texan. Too bad the embarrassing mishap turns out to be the least of her worries. After all, every woman needs a knight in shining armor once--or twice--in a lifetime.

About the Author

USA TODAY Bestselling author Chris Keniston's love of a good story and frustration with the end of a well known author's romance best seller, drove her to pen her own works of romance and fiction.

Her romantic women's fiction novels include a variety of themes from international settings dealing with wealthy millionaires, family feuds and tropical beaches, to the relationships between family and friends in small town Texas, and to sisterhood and friendship in the award winning novel The Champagne Sisterhood.

Currently working on the contemporary romance Aloha Series, Chris Keniston is enjoying playing with her former military heroes. Using popular themes of small towns and sandy beaches blended with stories of the single dad, survivors guilt, an accidental wedding and more is making the Aloha Series a reader's choice.

A native New Yorker, Chris Keniston was on her way to Australia when she fell in love with North Texas. Little did she know the balmy seventy degree October days would turn into fry-an-egg-on-the-sidewalk heat in August!

Author of more than a dozen contemporary novels, including a finalist for the prestigious Golden Heart Award, Chris lives in suburban Dallas with her husband, two human children, and two canine children. Though she loves her puppies equally, she admits being especially attached to her German Shepherd rescue named Gunny. After all, even dogs deserve a happily ever after.

ian--a great book. Unexpected twist toward the end. wondered how the older gentlemen would get out of the fix they got themselves into. These books are really short, but, I thank Chris for keeping them clean.

Another excellent story from this writer. I have pre-ordered the next one in the series as I've done the last few. I hope it doesn't take as long as this one did as I am anxious to see all of the Farraday family married off. And to have an explanation of the mysterious dogs and now puppies that seem to tie everything together.

I have read all the Faraday books. I loved every one of them. Ian's story is very nice.

I think this is my favourite book of this series of Farraday Country men & women. I'm not sure what exactly makes it stand out but I know you won't be disappointed when you read this novel! I love it, I love the growing families (including the special dogs) and I love the relationship between Ian & Kelly. It reeled me in right from the beginning.

The Farraday Country series provides a ray of sunshine in a world that is full of negativity. Each tale is another piece of the rainbow that builds hope. Ms. Keniston has created in the Farradays, a family that is a little bit broken, but forever linked in love and life. Someone, somewhere is looking out for them. With a little help from a furry guardian angel, they can conquer anything the world tosses their way. Ian is the man with the plan. A far too serious loner, that always has time for his family. When a flighty and unpredictable whirlwind blows into town, his staid existence becomes chaos. Will he survive the ride with his heart intact? Pleasure is synonymous with this sweet series.

I really waited for Ian's story since the first time he appeared in the Farraday series. I was not disappointed. I really liked the flow of the plot and the banter between Ian and Kelly. The only negative comment I can say about it, is that like the rest of the Farraday books, the Farradays seems too ficitional and not real. However, I highly recommend the book and can't wait for the next book in the series.

Always enjoyable to read about the Farradays and the characters of Tuckers Bluff. I've been rooting for Kelly to meet a good man since the first book and I'm glad Ian truly saw her. Kelly's relatives and their mischief had me chuckling. Great read.

I read this book in one day. That just doesn't happen in my world! I am never disappointed when upload a Farraday County book.

Those matchmaking dogs are at it again! The Faraday cousins are as great as the Tucker Bluff family! I am so glad that Chis Keniston continued the series with Hannah and now Ian and I look forward to Jamison's story. I have been waiting for Kelly's turn to find someone special and I hoped it would be a Faraday. Texas Ranger Ian Faraday is awesome!!! If you have ever read one of the books in the series, the rest are sure to be an auto-buy but for any new readers, you can feel pretty comfortable starting that this point. While the earlier couples are identified, not too much of their story is revealed. This tale probably has more humor than the others because her grandfather and great uncle are quite mischievous; there is a feeling that their poor choices come from age related issues but boredom is possible culprit so the concern is not a big downer although it is recognized as a part of life that has to be addressed. The way Ian works with their issues makes him a hero because he isn't just doing it for Kelly, it is representative of who he is. I received an ARC of Ian from the author, a thrill for me because I absolutely adore this series. This is one of those books that I have to shout about to friends and fellow readers because I love it SO much.
