If you like bad-boy heroes, western settings, and a sexy, sassy heroine you will love Jennifer Ryan's newest Wild Rose Ranch book! Perfect for fans of Diana Palmer, Linda Lael Miller, and Jodi Thomas.
One minute down-on-his-luck rancher Austin Hubbard slept soundly, the next, a sassy spitfire dumped a pitcher of water on his head and woke him up—in more ways than one. Hired to help him rebuild his ranch, Sonya Tucker ends up helping him put the tattered pieces of his life back together. The capable, all-business accountant is on a mission to get the ranch up and running, but can he convince the temptingly beautiful woman to take a chance on him?
Sonya was dismayed that Austin had lost it all: money, family, respectability. Things she—who’d been raised by her mother at Nevada’s notorious brothel Wild Rose Ranch—only dreamed about. But working with the long, lean cowboy shows her that Austin is honorable to his core. Together they slowly grow to see what the love between them might bring.
But then Austin’s powder keg of a family feud explodes, exposing long-buried secrets, and threatening their new-found love…

Restless Rancher is a story of second chances, survival, and finding the courage to love again. This heartwarming and well penned tale kept me entranced from the first page until the last. It's eccentric cast of characters drew me into their world and made me feel right at home. The story they told was heartfelt, humorous, suspenseful, dramatic and steamy.... a perfect concoction for a blissful literary escape! If you love small town stories heavy on emotion, suspense, and steam then you are bound to fall head over heels for this one. Highly recommend! I requested an advanced copy of this title from the publisher, and I am voluntarily leaving my honest and unbiased opinion.
Restless Rancher by Jennifer Ryan is a spectacular western romance. Ms. Ryan has given readers a well-written book populated with an outstanding cast of characters. Kudos to Ms. Ryan on the characters in this book, they made this story awesome. Austin has been let down by his father and fiance. Sonya arrives on the scene to give him a hand getting his grandfather's house livable again, sent to him by his new partner, Roxy. Sonya and Austin's story is packed with drama, humor, smokin' hot sex, suspense, action and plenty of unexpected twists and turns. I enjoyed every page of this book and look forward to reading more from Jennifer Ryan in the future. Restless Rancher is book 2 of the Wild Rose Ranch Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger. I won a print copy of this book from Goodreads. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
