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?

Tara and West’s Story— a Must Read
This is the 1st book in the Redemption Ranch Series and it is awesome. Weston Morgan got a 2nd chance when Douglas Rawlings gave him a foster home in Montana on his ranch. He was a troubled youth but Douglas saw something in him that reminded him of himself. Over the years Douglas also took in two other boys, Chase and Ty. He also had a daughter, Tara. On his wife’s deathbed, he promised her that he would give Tara the best education she could have and a life of her own away from the ranch. Over the years a rift developed between Tara and her father. She felt as if he didn’t want her around after her mother passed away and he sent her away. Now, her father is gone and she’s called home to make funeral arrangements and settle his estate. Expecting to inherit the ranch, she’s thrown for a loop when the ranch is left to her and the foster brothers, West, Chase and Ty. The ranch isn’t as profitable as she thought and with a huge inheritance tax to pay, they need to come up with options. She wants to sell but the brothers refuse as it’s the only place they can call home.
A well written storyline and Wonderful characters that draw you in from the beginning to the very last page. There’s a wide range of emotions from anger, humor, angst, heartbreak and a passionate love between Tara and West. This is going to be an incredible series. This is a must read. Can’t wait for Chase and Ty’s stories.

Thankful for new beginnings
Tara gets a call from her nemesis that turns her already messed up life on its ear. Her estranged father has passed away and she must return to the ranch that she was alienated from to deal with what happens next.

Now that their savior, Tara’s dad, is gone they wait for the princess to arrive so they can all learn what the future holds now. Imagine everyone’s surprise when it becomes known that the four of them will share the ranch equally. Old hurts will have to be put aside and assumptions will have to be corrected in order for West and Tara to find their HEA.
This is a good start to the Redemption Ranch series and I cannot wait for the next book.

Beautiful and compelling journey to facing regrets and finding your true home
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. I voluntarily read an ARC of this book and this is my honest review.
