45046563When a shy woman inherits a ranch, she’ll have to find an inner strength to succeed—and open herself up to love—in this heartwarming novel from New York Times bestselling author Victoria James.

Sarah Turner has led a very sheltered life. So when her parents pass away tragically, suddenly she’s left in charge of the family ranch with little know-how but plenty of will to keep it afloat. Determined not to lose her parents’ legacy or her newfound independence, she needs a hero fast—not to save her, but to show her how to save herself. But she’s unprepared for the ruggedly handsome cowboy who answers her ad.

“Cowboy for Hire,” the ad said, and Cade Walker is quick to respond. Betrayed as ranch manager by his former boss, he’s looking for a new place to put down roots—without the pressure to prove himself again. Except when he meets his new boss, it’s clear he’s not only there to run a ranch but to also teach Miss Independent how to run it. But as they struggle to make the ranch flourish, they’ll both need courage if they hope to find a family…together.


If you love cowboy romances with a bit of humor and some mild steamy times, this one could be for you!

The beginning really pulled me in with a rather funny, yet horrifying, mix-up causing our heroine to have a flock of cowboys waiting on her front porch. It was an intro I was totally here for!

I would have liked to see a bit more spice into the mix with their relationship.  While there were some moments that had me yearning for more, there were a few bits in the book that were on the slower side. It did leave the floor open for the character development and really getting to hone in on their backstories, but I wish there was just a little more oomph to the story.

A solid read, giving it 3 out of 5 stars. I’d recommend this one to readers who want a western romance with a slower-paced plot so you can really dive into the characters’ lives.
