Winning Over the Wrangler

GIVEAWAY

FORD, LINDA
WINNING OVER THE WRANGLER

A Cowboy without a Name

The only thing Brand Duggan's outlaw kin ever gave him was an undeserved reputation. Once he's through breaking horses, he'll leave Eden Valley. Staying means risk—and heartache. And he has no business falling for a refined English miss like Sybil Bannerman.

The rugged cowboy who rescues her from a stampede is just the kind of man Sybil Bannerman's editor wants her to write about. Yet she has no idea how big a secret Brand Duggan carries, until her life is threatened. Despite the evidence against him, Sybil can't walk away—for the man who lassoed her heart is the one she'll love forever….

Cowboys of Eden Valley: Forging a future in Canada's west country

My Review:

Seriously, who can resist a loner cowboy with an ugly dog named Dawg? Not me, that's for sure. And yay -- Winning Over the Wrangler is set in Canada. :-) 

This is my first trip to Eden Valley Ranch and I have no clue how I missed the other four in the series but I plan on remedying that because I love a good Western and this one is good. And emotion-riddled and inspirational and surprising and...well just plain good.

Brand's journey surprised me the most. Just when I thought I had it figured out Ford threw an unexpected twist into the plot and then delivered even more heart-stirring angst. I was a bit of an emotional basket case by the end. Dawg got me every time. :-)

A great read by a prolific new-to-me author. I have a lot of catch up reading to do and I can't wait.
