This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
The Morgan men thought they left their troubled pasts in the dust. But one by one, they find themselves returning to the northern California ranch where the bad times began. Together, they have a chance to forge a new future based on brotherhood, hope, and love . . .
Professional rodeo cowboy “HW” Morgan has finally achieved his dream of competing in the national rodeo finals—but his career has come at a price. His twin brother wants nothing to do with him and a string of hookups haven’t warmed his bed. He’s got to get his head on straight—and the only place to do that is at home, if his family will have him.
Samantha Kelly isn’t sure what she’s doing at a new dude ranch. The army veteran is barely back on her feet again, still struggling to rehab an injury. But she’s willing to give equine therapy a try, even though her riding instructor is bold, brash, and distractingly easy on the eyes. As she and HW warily try to work each other out, slowly and surely an unbreakable trust is built—one on which dreams can be built . . .
Praise for The Reluctant Cowboy
“Pearce sets up solid main-character arcs and creates good chemistry in a realistic western. While Pearce's descriptions of the ranch will inspire dreams of visiting one, the family secrets are alluring enough to make readers eager for the next book.” —Booklist
Sweet, Sassy & Emotional
I really enjoyed HW & Sam's story, it was sweet, sassy, emotional & strong. Sam is a military veteran amputee from the war in Afghanistan who was asked to the Morgan Ranch to help them make sure everything is just right for its grand opening. Coming home is a little terrifying for HW Morgan because he hasn't been home for any length of time since he left home at 18. The rodeo circuit celebrity has decided to retire & move home to help out on the ranch & reconnect with his family, which he thinks is going to be the hardest thing he's ever done. When Sam over hears HW whining about having to give riding lessons to some newbie kid she decides to give him a run for his money. It's hilarious how she scatters HW & it's great to see HW push Sam past her limits with his flirting. These to were such damaged characters in such different ways but that damage is what draws them together but also pushes them apart. Add in the drama with HW's brothers & you have a highly combustible story. I loved HW's character in this story because he was such a sweet, sexy cowboy who wanted nothing more than to fit in with his family & take care of the stubborn woman he was falling for. Definitely recommend this book & series to read. I hope there's going to be a book on the newly found sister Rachel soon. I received this book through Net Galley for an honest review.
