Awh, the second book in Ms. Nord's Cutteridge series. I absolutely loved this novel. Ms. Nord has developed a writing style that draws her readers in. She has great character development and very imaginal life nuances. The love story between Callie and her hero, Jackson was sweet, yet adventurous. Callie, a beautiful young woman left to run her horse ranch alone has acquired a personality with much grit and stubbornness. This has been her means of survival. Unbeknown to her, her dear brother, Reece has sold his share of their horse ranch to a strong, handsome, brave and equally stubborn man, Jackson Neale. Together, the two embark on a turbulent journey into the world of love and commitment.

Callie Cutteridge is as hardened as they come. She runs her own ranch in southern Arizona Territory while fending off Apache and staying one step ahead of what the tough terrain throws at her. But her carefully controlled world comes crashing down when Jackson Neale arrives. A former cavalry officer during the Civil War, he now owns half the ranch thanks to Callie’s brother. He’s looking for a fresh start after the severity of the war and the ranch is everything he hoped for and more. He doesn’t realize that the ‘more’ is a headstrong woman who pushes every button he has. This is a true opposites attract story and it’s to Ms. Nord’s credit that it works so incredibly well. You honestly can’t believe these two will ever get together in the beginning, but the unfolding of the story made this a book that was hard to put down. Rich in details of the old west, ‘With Open Arms’ has it all: high drama, great tension, and a satisfying romance.

Wonderful story! Exciting, adventurous, full of romance, and grit. Great main and secondary characters. I feel like a book needs great secondary characters to enhance the main characters. Callie is tough as nails, full of sass, and gumption; Jackson is ever efficient, full of handsome, polish and swagger, and when the two meet it's almost war! This book is everything and more than what I expect out of a good western story. I have enjoyed reading these first two books of The Cutteridge Family series and look forward to reading more. I hope you do too :)

Cindy Nord’s book, With Open Arms, is the story of Reece Cutteridge’s sister, Callie Cutteridge. She has been running the family horse ranch, Dos Caballos, in the Arizona Territory since her brother left to fight in the Civil War. Then, unexpectedly, she is presented with new partner, Jackson Neale. “Without removing his gaze, he reached into his frock coat. With the speed of a striking rattlesnake, an envelope appeared in his leather-gloved hand, then rose between them until level with her eyes. “The name’s Jackson Neale and this makes me your new partner.” ” The story is exciting and filled with adventures that are reminiscent of Zane Gray’s Riders of the Purple Sage. The love story of Callie and Jackson is teeming with misunderstanding and passion. The two lovers both find differing explanations for each other’s words and actions, which lead to heartbreaking decisions made by each of them that rips them apart; then circumstances bring them back together. Ms. Nord is a master at her chosen craft. She does extensive research on everything from clothing to the history of the old west culture. Her characters are all people you would like to know, especially if you lived in their era. You will be transported to the wilds of an 1866 western horse ranch and live within the unsettling society of the times. You will be thrilled as you continue to follow the Cutteridge family in With Open Arms. Born into a family of educators, Cindy Nord moved from the southwestern Arizona desert to southwestern Indiana during her teenage years.

Cindy Nord has done it again! I love this second book even more then her first. We all fell in love with Reece in No Greater Glory, but wait until you meet his spunky sister Callie and Jackson, the man Reece sells his half of the ranch to. Partners or enemies? Is Callie so independent she doesn't need or want a handsome partner at the ranch or is there a hidden fear of getting hurt again? Is it that hurt that makes her such a hellion? Can Jackson tame her fear as he does with horses? This writer has really done her research. The detail in this story makes you see and feel as if you are living the part you are reading The emotions are strong, the characters are full of life. I love this book and highly recommend it to all.
