Okay, so I got so excited doing the review on Margaret Tanner's book, I actually sat and read another novel. I had the good fortune to win two in blog contests I entered, so when I received Her Reluctant Rancher by Anne Marie Novark, and found it personally autographed, I owed it to her to read her story.
Am I glad I did? You bet. I wasn't familiar with the author or her work, but I quickly discovered Ms. Novark is an ultimate romance writer. The sexual tension between the hero and heroine began the moment they laid eyes on one another and continued up and through the actual mating scene. I confess, the emotions were so vivid, I felt as though I was in the room with them when they first undressed, and I think I actually blushed.*lol* This wasn't sex, people; this was love making at it's finest. Brought back some great memories of my youth. *rofl*
From the time handsome and rich Trevor Callahan returns to his deceased grandfather's ranch with the intention of selling it all to erase bad memories, his future is forever changed. The moment he sets his gaze on adorable little Mags and her sexy mother, Beth, he's a goner... despite pages and pages of denial on his part. Ms. Novark has definitely mastered electric sparks, because they are readily apparent each time the two characters are in a room together.
This isn't just another sexy fiction, this book has a believable plot and characters you'll identify with and love. Tension, conflict (external and internal), and an ending you might anticipate, but one that still leaves you saying "ahhh!"
Want a great book?Her Reluctant Rancher by Anne Marie Novark is my second recommended read of the month. Honestly, had I not won the book, I probably would never have read it. Expanding your horizons pays great dividends. If you don't pick up something a little different, you might miss out on a lot of wonderful authors. Brava, Anne Marie! OH! you can learn more about how to order the book and read about this brilliant author on her website.
NOTE: My plan is to try to complete at least one book a month that I can review here. Anything I can do to promote a fellow e-published author helps me too. We're all in this together, so maybe Anne Marie might get curious and want to see how I write. You never know. *smile* I'm a firm believer in endorsing the work of my peers. The authors contracted with bigger houses have enough help, they don't need mine.
