If you like bad-boy heroes, western settings, and a sexy, sassy heroine you will love Jennifer Ryan's newest Wild Rose Ranch book! Perfect for fans of Diana Palmer, Linda Lael Miller, and Jodi Thomas.

One minute down-on-his-luck rancher Austin Hubbard slept soundly, the next, a sassy spitfire dumped a pitcher of water on his head and woke him up—in more ways than one. Hired to help him rebuild his ranch, Sonya Tucker ends up helping him put the tattered pieces of his life back together. The capable, all-business accountant is on a mission to get the ranch up and running, but can he convince the temptingly beautiful woman to take a chance on him?

Sonya was dismayed that Austin had lost it all: money, family, respectability. Things she—who’d been raised by her mother at Nevada’s notorious brothel Wild Rose Ranch—only dreamed about. But working with the long, lean cowboy shows her that Austin is honorable to his core. Together they slowly grow to see what the love between them might bring.

But then Austin’s powder keg of a family feud explodes, exposing long-buried secrets, and threatening their new-found love…

Restless Rancher gives the story of Austin, who is having a terrible time lately. Sonya isn’t about to let him wallow in self pity though!

Most of the story of Restless Rancher is focused on Austin’s troubles. This creates some drama and mystery that keeps the story moving along briskly. Sonya is one of the most interesting heroines! She was raised on Wild Rose Ranch brothel by her mother. This has made her very strong and self assured. She is a hard working and doesn’t take any BS. Sonya and Austin butt heads at first for sure-Austin has had all the things in life Sonya always wanted and she is not going to put up with his moodiness. It doesn’t take long for Austin to realize how amazing Sonya is though.

Overall, Restless Rancher is a beautiful love story with a touch of mystery and lots of banter. I didn’t read book 1, but I am certainly interested in the other women from Wild Rose Ranch!



other western romance like those written by RC Ryan, BJ Daniels, Maisey Yates, AJ Pine…then you will probably like Restless Rancher!

  1. Great review love. I am currently reading this one, and I can’t wait to see Austin’s story unfold. I love seeing more focus on heroes, siince in most romances we get more focus on heroines so its nice to have a chance of pace in that aspect.

  2. Sounds like a fun one, I know I would like Sonya! When I saw the cover and author, I thought for sure I had read the first book in the series, but nope. Have you read book 1? I know it’s says standalone in an interconnected series, but I’m a stickler for reading my series in order lol.

    Great review 🙂
