Falling for the Rancher

GIVEAWAY

RUSTAND, ROXANNE
FALLING FOR THE RANCHER

The Cowboy's New Family

All veterinarian Darcy Leighton wants is a good life for her daughter. But when the vet practice she hopes to inherit is bought out from under her by newcomer Logan Maxwell, she stands to lose her position completely.

Recovering from a bad breakup, the handsome cowboy wants a fresh start -- one that doesn't include working with a woman he's undeniably attracted to. No stranger to heartbreak, Darcy has reservations of her own, but she can't walk away from this job. She'll just have to convince Logan to take a chance on her...and believe that what they have together is strong enough to last.

Aspen Creek Crossroads: Where love, faith and healing meet

My Review:

Woot -- this is me doing ecstatic back flips over both a veterinarian hero and heroine in one story. My critter lovin' heart is all aflutter -- even if Dr. Logan Maxwell didn't make the best first impression. I was squarely on Darcy's team from page one and, frankly, Logan poses a threat to her future happiness right out of the gate so that got my dander up.

Turns out he's just a misunderstood hero with a gnarly backstory that is slowly revealed as the story progresses. My heart thawed a bit. And when his innate compassion and kindness kept slipping past his defenses, well, my heart softened a bit more. But what really dissolved me to mush was a certain scene between Logan and an abused dog. Be. Still. My. Heart.

Darcy's focus is clear and simple -- build a secure future for her daughter. That does not involve falling in love with her new (and cantankerous) boss. These two have personal battles to fight before they can begin to envision a future together and that makes for one glorious read!

This is the fifth book in the Aspen Creek Crossroads series and the first book I've read by Roxanne Rustand but you can bet I'll be sure to get a hold of her earlier books!
