You won't want to miss a single one!
When Navy pilot Ryder Westbrook is shot down, his only thought is making it home—to the place he left behind a long time ago. But dreaming about the small town of Eagle's Ridge and going back are two very different things, and upon arrival Ryder finds himself in the middle of another battlefield—an old family feud between the Westbrooks and the Tuckers. To complicate matters, he needs disputed land to start his second career at the local airfield. He decides to enlist the help of beautiful Bailey Tucker, but the chef soon has his senses spinning in another direction…
The last person Bailey is interested in helping is golden boy Ryder Westbrook. After a painful personal betrayal, irresistible attraction to another man, who is probably too good to be true, seems like a terrible idea. But she also needs something from the Westbrooks, a chance to start over and build the restaurant of her dreams.
Ryder and Bailey make a simple plan—work together to get what they both want, but what happens when they find out what they really want is each other?
Don't miss any of the sexy soldiers!

This is a series of seven books written by seven authors. I have the pleasure of reading the first book. I enjoyed this light story very much. It is an easy entertaining read. One item I always enjoy in a book is when the characters actually talk to each other, instead of assuming an answer, then twisting the story up with silly drama. This story is straightforward and the two main characters actually talk out their problems. Good read worth the time spent.
Great start of a new interesting series.
This is the start of a new series which will consist of seven different authors writing about seven different soldiers. Really looking forward to reading the remaining six stories. I think this is a great concept as you get to see how other authors go with the story. The first book is the story of Ryder Westbrook, a Navy Pilot and Bailey Tucker a Chef. After Ryder gets shot down all he wants to do is go home to his small home town. As the story of a Ryder and Bailey gets started it makes you wonder how they are going to get together, but knowing the series is called 7 Brides for 7 Soldiers you know it’s going to happen later. The story kept me interested with a little suspense thrown in. I actually read the book in two days and really enjoyed it. Loved the interaction between Ryder and Bailey. Loved how the communication flowed between the two. Looking forward to reading the rest of the series. Hoping that they get a mention in the other books. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good romance. Have time, cause if you are like me you are going to want to keep reading and forget about anything else. In fact my husband got pizza for dinner the first day cause I lost track of time. I love stories that drag you in and keep you going. This is one of those stories. Who doesn’t like a “happy ever after” story.
As the first book in a multi-author series, Barbara Freethy's "Ryder" sets the bar high. She draws you into the story from the very intriguing beginning. Ryder Westbrook returns home to his small town after a Navy career. He helps out Bailey Tucker who has escaped the big city. I love the way Barbara Freethy reveals the secrets of the characters to each other and the readers bit by bit. This story has family drama, dilemma, rescue and romance mixed together in a five star read. Expect no less than perfection from this author.
