Hard-working cowboys with a big heart are just so dang sexy!!
The Sweetheart Ranch #2
by Cathy McDavid
He may not be perfect…
But he’s perfect for her!
Ryan DeMere is definitely enjoying the perks of being Sweetheart Ranch’s new wrangler—the best is working with head chef Bridget O’Malley. He’s fallen head over spurs for the talented and determined beauty. There’s just one hiccup. Bridget is holding out for Mr. Right—and Ryan doesn’t quite meet her requirements. But he’s determined to win Bridget over, because Ryan may not be perfect…but maybe their love could be.
A Cowboy’s Christmas Proposal, The Sweetheart Ranch #1
At a magical time of year…
Can a cowboy help falling in love?
For single dad Owen Caufield, living and working at Sweetheart Ranch for a month is the perfect change of pace. While the cowboy turned wedding officiant can now spend more time with his children, Molly O’Malley, his new boss, is less thrilled. A wedding ranch isn’t the best place for three rambunctious youngsters. But amid the chaos—and the coming holidays—it may be the best place to fall in love…
Ryan is definitely one of my favorite heroes that I’ve read in a while. He’s got a good sense of fun and his humor is very laid-back & contagious. He takes things seriously when he needs to but also knows how to just enjoys life. He’s a good foil for Bridget who unfortunately tends to takes things a little too seriously.
I enjoyed that their biggest obstacle is just plain ol’ timing (and that seriousness) and that there wasn’t too much drama between them. Sometimes it is nice to just have a story that you can relax into and enjoy as it unfolds in a real way. You can understand completely how two people have a good connection but just aren’t in a place where they can get involved.
Of course, love finds a way (with a little meddling) and everything works out in the end. But it is the journey from flirting to more to trouble to that HEA ending that makes for an enjoyable read. If you are looking for excitement and angst, you aren’t going to find a lot of it here. Instead you get a slow burn romance that is perfect for a lazy couple of days of reading.
