For the hardworking folks of Morgantown, home really is where the heart is. But sometimes it takes leaving for a while to figure that out . . .
Kaiden Miller may be the family jokester, but he takes his work on their ranch very seriously. And as a sought-after master carpenter to boot, he’s busier than ever. Still, when he’s asked to renovate the neighboring ranch, he’s more than willing. The owner, Juan Garcia, is ailing, and Kaiden expects to find the property pretty run down. He doesn’t expect to find his old nemesis—Juan’s daughter,
Julia—overseeing his work . . .
Julia’s not sure why Kaiden never liked her. But if working with him makes life easier for her father, so be it. Yet to her surprise, not only is Kaiden great with her father, he’s great with her too. As the weeks pass, it becomes harder to ignore their simmering attraction. And when Julia’s boss turns up with a sweet deal, both she and Kaiden will have to decide where their loyalties—and their hearts—lie . . .
Praise for The Rancher’s Redemption
“Readers will be gratified by this feel-good love story.”
“Those who love family drama, redemption stories, and satisfying romance all rolled into one will want this title.”
Pearce's enticing fourth Millers of Morgan Valley romance (after The Rebellious Rancher) highlights the relationship between a small-town cowboy and a big-city attorney. San Francisco lawyer Julia Garcia returns home to Morgan Valley, Calif., to help care for her father, Juan, whose multiple sclerosis is worsening. There she becomes reacquainted with Kaiden Miller, her brother's childhood friend and the rancher/carpenter hired to remodel her father's ranch. Their mutual attraction is undeniable, but good-natured Kaiden, who uses humor as a coping mechanism to deal with his mercurial father, worries that Julia will return to San Francisco and leave him in the lurch. Meanwhile, Julia's brother, Miguel, teams up with Julia's work rival to convince Juan to sell his ranch and when the scheme comes to light, it creates a rift between Julia and Kaiden just as their relationship is blossoming. Pearce effortlessly draws readers in to Kaiden and Julia's romance, using the characters' shared past to ease their transition from friends to lovers. Series fans will be entranced.
Just love Morgan Valley! Wish I could move ther and be a part of that quirky community.
Great book about love and comprises.
The Rancher Meets His Match
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley and I am voluntarily reviewing it.
This was a wonderful addition to the ranching family of the Millers who live in Morgan Valley. While this is a part of a series, it can be read as a stand-alone BUT I would highly recommend reading the prior books. Not only to be able to understand the family dynamics, but they are wonderful stories as well.
Kaiden Miller, is the third son in the family. Not only does he help work the ranch with his brothers but he is a carpenter as well. He is asked to help redesign a neighbor’s house whose patriarch, Juan Garcia, has MS and now has to rely on a wheelchair to really get around now. Julia Garcia comes home as it is her father that needs the help. Julia is an attorney who lives in the San Francisco area and hasn’t come home all that much. She and Kaiden have had an unusual history as Kaiden was friends with her brother Juan before their falling out.
These two have a communication problem that they have to bridge. Kaiden is known to be the family jokester to help ease tension in the family and he won’t tell Julia how or why he and his brother had a falling out. The sparks between these two proud people really lead to frustration as they live in two different areas of California and neither can see how to get around that.
This is a sexy read. I would recommend this to anyone over the age of 18. It was also written in my favorite dual POV format. This helped to fully understand the characters and to see their side of the frustration.
