In this sweet and sexy spin-off of New York Times bestselling author Kate Pearce’s beloved Morgan Ranch series, the close-knit folks of Morgantown, California, have long memories—and big hearts to go with them.
Everyone in rancher Danny Miller’s life wants to know how he feels about his teenage flame returning to Morgan Valley. Danny wishes he knew. After the disastrous ending of their relationship, and Faith’s choice to leave town all those years ago, Danny’s rebuilt his life without her. But he’s about to have a very practical reason for needing her in it again—despite the very impractical desire she inspires once he lays eyes on her . . .
Faith McDonald hadn’t planned on returning home, but with her dad retiring, her help is needed at the family veterinary practice. She’s hoping that by now, folks have forgotten what happened between her and Danny—even if the two of them never can. With a mystery infection decimating the Miller cattle, she and Danny soon find themselves on the same side for the first time in forever. There was a lot of trouble in their past, but the good parts never really flamed out, including their intense attraction. And their shared determination to cure the cattle might just lead them to a healing of their own—and a whole new all-grown-up future . . .
Praise for The Rebellious Rancher
“Sensual. . . . This sexy tale is sure to please cowboy fans.”
Pearce's fifth Millers of Morgan Valley romance (after The Rancher Meets His Match) offers a thin second-chance love story that kicks off when Faith McDonald returns to Morgan Valley after 17 years away. She's there to take over her family's veterinary clinic, but she's unsurprised by the chilly reception she gets from the townsfolk, most of whom still hold a grudge against her for abandoning her high school boyfriend, rancher Danny Miller. It's true that Danny was shattered when Faith left, but he's the only one besides Faith who knows the melodramatic secret that led to her departure. Now an outbreak of scours among the cattle force the pair to work together to control the damage to the town. The task gives them the chance to come to terms with their past—and realize the extent of their parents' meddling back in the day. Replete with nosy neighbors, deceptive family members, and a slew of misunderstandings, the novel's not short on drama, but Pearce spends more time explicating Faith and Danny's past relationship than exploring what they mean to one another now, making it difficult to root for their reunion. The choppy flow and lack of romantic focus make this one to skip.
