Also featured at http://bookstocurlupwiith.blogspot.com I am beyond thrilled. NOTE: apparently this gal lives in southern saskatchewan–that makes me feel even happier–Thank You to Patricia Stratham ! She loved the book.
 

Ok I fell in love with this book by just the cover alone . As I started to read , I got sucked into the story of second chances and falling in love. Set on a cattle ranch in South Western Saskatchewan . Where two broken souls come together , with misunderstandings and broken hearts . They find each other but will they survive and find their way back to each other .

Lets just say this , this book will make you laugh and cry and then laugh some more . The characters are so well written and complex. She writes such strong female characters . They are independent and not conceited at all. Frank fits that ideal to a tee. She is strong independent but doesn’t realize what kind of reaction she has over the men in her life . She has this inner spark that can’t be blown out. She has had hardships and is suffering from depression from the tragedy . But she doesn’t wallow and heads out to a new adventure. As she works at the ranch she grows stronger and we see the true Frank come out . The strong woman, with a tender side . She knows when to go after what she wants and knows when to step back when things aren’t going right . Even though it might mean heart break again. She is a fighter and fighting she does . Colt is the man she fights with. This man is hot and sexy and quite the alpha man , but also has the sweet sensitive side. He is there to help his family when they need him . But he is also holding onto a bunch of hurt . He is tough but tender and will protect what is his . He is the type of guy you want in your corner and take home to your mom . But like most men he jumps to conclusions and has a temper and he admits when he is wrong .

The supporting cast of characters are so fun to read . I won’t go into details but Ollie is my all time favorite characters, he like the comic relief / father figure to both the main characters . You really feel for the position he is put in and you can see he really wants to knock some heads together.

I absolutely fell in love with this book , like I said she has based the story on a ranch in South Western Saskatchewan. In the Cypress hills near Maple Creek and Swift Current . She paints a great picture of what Saskatchewan is about . The story blends right into the area and flows so well . I started reading it in the morning and finished in a day . I couldn’t put it down . I loved the characters and the story . I actually shed some tears and laughed a lot while reading this book. As soon as I finished book one I started book two. I just had to know what happened . I also like that the author brought the characters back in book two. I like to know what happens to them as you read . But they don’t take away from what is happening in the rest of the books . I adore this set of books for so many reasons . But most of all that they are great books written with such a passion and a love . So if you want a sweet contemporary romance with a cowboy flair . This is the series for you . So check them out. Colt and Frank will sweep you off your feet

WOW!! ePrintedBooks has let me know that “The Second Time Around, Book One of the Belanger Creek Ranch Series” manuscript, has been formatted for paperback and ebook (KDP Select) Things are moving along!

This is the description on the back of the book…

Sparks fly when Frank Lamonte and Colt Thompson meet. There is an explosion of anger, based on misinformation and suspicion: but there is also an undeniable attraction. Thirty-six fateful hours set the stage for a lifetime of consequences.

Veterinarian, Frank Lamonte, comes to Belanger Creek Ranch to work as a ranch hand after her boss recognizes her growing symptoms of depression and insists she take a leave of absence. She is reeling from a series of emotional blows, the final one being a broken engagement. He tells her to leave town for a while and give her ravaged emotions a chance to heal, without constantly facing reminders of the past. She’s determined to get better quickly, and nothing will stand in her way.…that is, until she meets the owner of Belanger Creek Ranch. Her attraction to him could end her plans, even though she thinks otherwise.

After divorcing the cheating wife who destroyed his dreams, Colt Thompson has become a bitter and cynical man. Being vulnerable once broke his heart; allowing it to happen twice will never happen. He will make certain that he never falls in love again. When he finds Frank Lamonte at the ranch, he makes up his mind that she is a liar and a cheat. He will not let himself be attracted to her, even though the tension sizzles.

Will Frank and Colt open their hearts to true love? Or, will Colt do everything he can to protect his heart? Will he wed Shauna Lee Holt, his “friends with benefits” woman; a woman he doesn’t love? Will Frank withdraw into herself and refuse to stake her claim?

Heartache lies ahead for these two intractable characters, and neither one of them will make wise choices along the way.

NOTE: For those of you who may have read “Hearts At Risk” when I first published, “The Second Time Around” is a complete rewrite of that book. I believed I could make it better, and feel I have. This is it as the first book in a four book series: new title, new cover, my branding. I hope you enjoy it!

Hearts at Risk has been published through Smashwords and is available in Kindle format as well as Epub (Apple iPad/iBooks, Nook, Sony Reader, Kobo, and most e-reading apps including Stanza, Aldiko, Adobe Digital Editions, others)

FREE for a limited time!  Enjoy!

Hearts At Risk

Karry Ann – See all my reviews

This review is from: Hearts at Risk (Paperback)

I down loaded the e-version of Hearts at Risk because I couldn’t get it anywhere in my area. I had it on my Touch pad in about 30 seconds and then once I started reading the story, I couldn’t put it down. This is an easy story to read. Though I am not much of a romance reader, I enjoyed this book because felt like …continue reading
