This New York Times bestselling author delivers a "page-turning romance" (Nora Roberts) about a city girl on the run and the strong, protective cowboy who keeps her safe.
Brand Merrick is a take-charge cowboy who considers relax a four-letter word. So when an injury lands him six weeks of physical therapy, he intends to keep right on working-until his grandmother hires a therapist to stay at their family ranch. He's not used to following orders, or slowing down, but Avery Grant has a way of getting him to do things he'd never thought he'd do . . .
Avery hates to admit it, but this super sexy rancher is testing her patience...and her professionalism. She's a born-and-bred city girl, yet she finds herself drawn to the rugged wilderness and the equally rugged cowboy she's here to help. But when a threat from her past follows Avery to Montana, it's Brand who rides to the rescue-if only she'll put her trust in him, and the growing feelings in her heart.
Includes the bonus novel Cowboy Rebelby New York Times bestselling author Carolyn Brown!
Ryan (Born to be a Cowboy) demonstrates a flair for making domestic Western stories feel welcoming and intimate in this first Wranglers of Wyoming romance. Physical therapist Avery Grant arrives at the immense and prosperous Merrick Ranch ready to help her patient, Brand Merrick, who recently suffered a leg injury. But Brand's attraction to Avery doesn't make him any more interested in taking time away from ranch chores to work on stretches with her. For her part, Avery is glad to let Brand's stubbornness drag out her time on the ranch, as back home in Michigan someone has been leaving her threatening messages (a subplot that's resolved a little too neatly). Avery and the Merricks establish close ties as she breaks through to Brand, helping him (and eventually his great-grandfather, as well) recover from injuries. Ryan's gorgeous descriptions of ranch country and the Grand Tetons add escapist pleasure to this family-centric romance. Readers are sure to be swept away. This edition includes a bonus novel by Carolyn Brown.
Escape your reality!
The one thing that Ms Ryan does well is write about families. This is no different. This was an easy, enjoyable read that takes you out of your reality into one that you would like to be a part of. This is what a book should do; put you in a different world and leaves you feeling good at the end. The relationship between Brand and Avery did seem to take a long time to get heated up. But, I guess, that’s what happens when you have a houseful of people. If you want to escape with an easy to read book, you’ve found it.
