Volunteer firefighter Jake McGregor can’t believe it when he arrives to the scene of a burning house, and finds out that someone in his small town has committed arson. When he looks into the frightened eyes of Faith Walker, he can’t imagine who would want to hurt her or her son, so why was the fire intentionally lit?
Faith has only been back in town a week, and already she’s wishing she’d never returned. Until handsome cowboy Jake rescues her and invites her to stay at his ranch, her old home town has been nothing short of unwelcoming. When she was sent away years ago, as a teenager and pregnant, she had hoped to never come back. Her dad turned his back on her, and she’d learned to fend for herself – the hard way.
Jake doesn’t particularly want a woman in his life, but he can’t turn Faith away. He’s been a bachelor since his fiancée died in a car crash five years before, and that’s how he wants to stay. Even if staying away from Faith starts to feel like the hardest task he’s ever endured…
Can anyone heal this rugged rancher’s broken heart?
I purchased this book from Amazon for free. I love cowboy romances, and I loved Montana Reunion by the same author, so I figured I would give it a try. Rescued by the Rancher was very well written. I just think everything fell into place too neatly for these two. I don’t understand how he went from not being able to look at her without it hurting to going to bed with her in one day.
Another thing that bothered me, the person who started the fire gets away with it? I don’t like that. Just threatening him is not enough. I don’t care who his family is. That’s ridiculous. What if they would’ve died. To me, this book had a lot of potential, I think there should have been more conflicts and the conflicts that were there, should’ve been worked out better. It’s like the book was rushed.
As I said this is a very well written book. Hardly any, if any, grammatical errors and the cover is smoking! I just wish I could’ve gotten more out of this story.
