Fresh-Start Ranch



After seeing Tessa Grant calm his storm-spooked horse, Ethan McClure is impressed. But does the new vet have what it takes to prove her mettle with Ethan's local horse-rescue group? Ethan can't deny her healing touch with animals…or her powerful effect on this rancher. But Tessa is busy trying to get her footing after leaving Kentucky to start over in this mountain town. When she learns a family secret that turns her world upside down, Tessa's ready to push everyone away. Unless Ethan can help her embrace forgiveness—and forge a path to her heart along the way.

My Review:

Reading and animals are two great loves in my life so you can imagine my euphoria when I hit upon this lovely romance about a vet and a horse rescue group.  The dynamics between Ethan and Tessa are prickly right from the start. Like nearly everyone else in her life, Ethan makes a snap judgement upon their first meeting. Tessa's used to shrugging them off...and tries to shrug him off as well but circumstances keep throwing them together. It isn't long before Ethan's her biggest advocate but Tessa still feels she has a lot to prove and romantic complications are the last thing she needs. Luckily Harris doesn't listen to her characters' wishes. :-) She weaves a riveting tale fraught with tension, past betrayal, lurking danger and plenty of sweet romantic moments.
