With their hearts' desires on the line, nothing can stop the Montana Men
No one knows better than Colt Kendrick that life can change in an instant. He lives without regrets except for one: not making the gorgeous woman he sees every time he walks into the local diner his.
Luna Hill is haunted by the heart-stopping kiss she and Colt never should have shared. Their timing has always been off. Just as sparks begin to ignite again, she is offered a job that will take her far from their ranching town. But when a dear friend dies unexpectedly, leaving Luna a staggering gift, she has a chance to stay and finally make her long buried wishes come true—even ones that involve the sexiest cowboy she’s ever known.
Not everyone is happy with Luna’s good fortune, and as they make their feelings dangerously and abundantly clear when she falls in their crosshairs, Colt will do anything he can, risk everything he has, to keep her safe. Because Luna showed him he has a heart...and it belongs to her.
Her Renegade Rancher by Jennifer Ryan is the fifth novel in the contemporary romance series Montana Men. Ryan delivers a romance set against the wide-open skies of Montana with a dash of heat and a suspenseful plot woven into this couple’s story.
Colt Kendrick is the youngest Kendrick brother and he stepped aside when his best friend claimed the girl, but his friend is now married, and a shared kiss has left him feeling guilty. Colt is a totally swoon worthy rancher who had no trouble curling my toes. 🙂
Luna Hill is haunted by the kiss she and Colt shared. Advice from an old friend has her approaching Colt again and maybe just maybe the timing will be right. Luna is a local server, who just finished her degree and dreams of working with special needs children in an equestrian program.
Her Renegade Rancher had such an interesting and suspenseful story wrapped around this romance. A dear friend of Luna’s passes away and leaves her with a gift that could make all of her dreams come true. It also comes with huge responsibility and not everyone is happy about it. In fact, her very life and those she loves are threatened. Oh, what a tangled web greed weaves, and Ryan did a fantastic job with this thread. I was hooked, from the terms of the will, to the bottom-feeders. Some twists, and heart-stopping moments had me flipping’ the pages.
There is a little back history between Colt and Luna in this story, but some may still cry insta-love. However, I was perfectly willing to swallow the little blue pill and became quickly invested. Colt and Luna are such sweet characters. They are both thoughtful, humble, and just genuine people. I
needed wanted them to have all the feels and happiness they deserved. Ryan delivered delicious chemistry, tenderness and curl your toes moments.
Next up is Ford’s story in His Cowboy Heart. It releases February 2017 and I cannot wait. Her Renegade Rancher delivered a story that pulled me in and emotionally connected me to the characters. Secondary characters added suspense, humor and beautiful moments creating a well-rounded story.
Espresso review: Two characters you cannot help but love, work together to fulfill a dead man’s dreams and find happiness as other’s plot to take it all. Ryan pulled me in from page one and held me in her grasps until the last page. Delightful!Amazon
