Giveaway - Back in the Saddle by Ruth Logan Herne!

http://images.randomhouse.com/cover/9781601427762?height=450&alt=no_cover_b4b.gifBy the mysterious workings of publishing companies, I have ended up with not one but TWO advanced reader copies of Ruth Logan Herne's new novel, and thus I feel practically obligated to give one away. Combine that with it landing right when I'm reaching 10,000 pageviews . . . well, it must be time for a celebratory giveaway!


About the book:

The Prodigal Is Coming Home

It’s been a long time since Colt Stafford shrugged off his cowboy legacy for shiny Manhattan loafers and a promising career on Wall Street. But when stock market manipulations leave him financially strapped, the oldest son of legendary rancher Sam Stafford decides to return to the sprawling Double S ranch in Gray’s Glen, Washington. He’s broke, but not broken, and it’s time to check in with his ailing father, and get his legs back under him by climbing into the saddle again.

He doesn’t expect to come home to a stranger pointing a loaded gun at his chest— a tough yet beautiful woman that Sam hired as the house manager. Colt senses there’s more to Angelina Morales than meets the eye and he’s determined to find out what she’s hiding…and why.

Colt’s return brings new challenges. Younger brother Nick has been Sam’s right-hand man at the ranch for years and isn’t thrilled at having Colt insert himself into Double S affairs. And the ranch’s contentious relationship with the citizens of Gray’s Glen asks all the Stafford men to examine their hearts about what it truly means to be a neighbor.  And as Wall Street recovers, will Colt succumb to the call of the financial district’s wealth and power—or finally the courage to stay in the saddle for good?

If you'd like to read my thoughts on the book (and for the record, I did enjoy it and am looking forward to book two, Home on the Range, which will be coming out in October 2016), click here for my review.

  1. I watch many westerns with my husband and I can't say I have a favorite. Most of them are good and have a moral to the story every time.

  2. The original TRUE GRIT! But I love most all cowboy movies, at least the ones of the older days. Or Quigley Down Under or anything with Sam Elliott or Tom Selleck or James Garner. See what you've started? We leave Nicaragua next week (for a month) and I'm craving westerns and Easter candy!

  3. When my husband was still living, we used to watch Lonesome Dove every summer. It was a fun thing to do, while traveling in our motorhome.
