Number in series: #2

Finally, as darkness fell, Rosie heard the thundering of horses’ hooves. That had to be the men.
She opened the front door and peered into the night. Sure enough, three horses approached the perimeter fence. Two of the men jumped down from their mounts and hurried toward the house while the third one, Rosie suspected it was Emmett, took the mares over to the barn.
Kenan reached her first.
“Is she…is it…I’ve been so…” He leaned over his knees and gasped for breath.
“Just get inside, you fool. Catherine is well. She’s waiting for you.”
He obeyed and Rosie turned back to the porch.
There he was. Dusty. Tired. Road weary. But as handsome as she remembered.
“Joshua,” she whispered his name then sighed as he took her into his arms. She relaxed against him, allowing his strength and vitality to form their reassuring circle around her.
“Oh Rosie, I’ve missed you so much. Has the baby arrived? Is Catherine well? Each time I’m away, it gets harder I swear.”
You have no idea…
“Yes, Catherine is very well. She and Kenan have a daughter. And how are you?” She pulled out of his embrace and looked at him. Even in the semi-darkness, with his face illuminated only by the light from within the house, his eyes seemed intense as the sky on a clear summer’s day.
They burned into her, reaching down inside her and igniting her passion for him. But this would not do. She had to end this. She had to divorce herself from her feelings for him so that she could bid him farewell.
She did. It was true.
But an idea began to form. She would tell Joshua that they had no future, that he should leave and never return. But she could allow herself something before she severed their ties. Why not? If she was to experience a lifetime of suffering, an eternity of heartbreak in a cold, lonely bed, then she could give herself something first…some sweet memories to
treasure for the rest of her days.

Bethany-Kris's Review of A Rancher for Rosie
****Five Stars****

Rosie Duggan, sister to rancher Kenan Duggan, has been in love with Joshua Hampton for longer than she can remember. But she's older than him, and the scandal surrounding her sister-in-law's return to the Duggan ranch paints her with a black brush in the eyes of Joshua's father. When the man warns Rosie away from his son, to give Joshua a chance at a real future with a younger woman who can give him what she maybe can't, a plan starts to form for Rosie. To make others happy, she decides to sacrifice her own. But Joshua isn't giving in that easily. 

I enjoyed A Rancher for Rosie slightly more than the Harlot at the Homestead. And mostly because the second book didn't seem to fly by like the first one did, even with it being novella length. I felt like we got a better look into the characters, their desires and motives, than we did with the first book. But also, I felt the second book gave a great look at the characters from the first book, too. 

I loved Rosie and her tenacity and passion. She's cowgirl tough. She's passionate. And she's not self-seeking. She wants others to have happiness, even if that means she can't. That doesn't make someone a doormat, it makes them a good, soft heart. Joshua helped to steal the show for me. He was unrelenting in his pursuit of Rosie, regardless of the opinions coming out of his family or others. He knew what he wanted--you have to love a sure man. 

Five stars all the way for me. Love an old-style cowboy. I look forward to Matthew and Huyana's story next.
