Publisher's Summary

Eugenia Burnett wants grandchildren. This cunning widow is determined to find wives for her brood of handsome sons.

Rose Severin, speaks to the dead or at least she pretends to until she can earn enough money to make her way to New York and become a famous actress like her mother. Travis Burnett is resolved to rid the frontier town of imposters like Rose. But Eugenia thinks the fiery Rose is just the woman for her obstinate son. She schemes to keep Rose at the family ranch where Travis soon realizes that the supposed spiritualist is more than just a pretty swindler.

    "Excellent Western Romance!"

    I LOVED this story! The romance is very well developed and the sexual tension was hot! The story and the narration were both passionate, intense and very interesting. I can't believe that the rest of the series is not available. Please add more books by this author!!!

    Story
    "The Rancher and the Medium - Hot Stuff!!!"

    Sylvia Mc Daniel conjured up a story that makes us laugh, cry and empathise with Desiree/Rose as she struggles to make a life for herself in spite of her chaotic upbringing. She's feisty and no nonsense and can stand up for herself, until Travis appears.

    Travis is all for family and is so attracted to Rose but cannot entirely trust her. His Mom wants grandchildren and to see her boys married and settled, so she will stop at nothing to make that a reality and runs a scam to entice the two main characters into getting to know each other. It's a cause for mayhem and chaos in the lives of the characters, but the story is funny, with lots of laughs and all's well that ends well.

    The supporting characters are well thought out and the plot thickens as the story emerges. Once you start listening you just want to continue to the end.
    This book was superbly written and I recommend it to other readers and listeners.

    I look forward to what else Sylvia McDaniel has to share, as this book is a 'keeper' and favourite. Really great reading.

    Listening to Robin Rowan was a wonderful experience as she portrayed the various characters via her voice. I'm impressed. You go girl.

    Story
    "The Rancher Takes a Bride"

    This book does not have much storyline. It is all about sex, or almost sex. I wish there was a review or rating system so one does not waste their time or money on books like this. Sorry.

    "unimaginative ending"

    The story was okay but the ending was unimaginative and disappointing. Furthermore I resent being forced to add nine more words.

    "predictable"

    The story seemed to keep repeating and there was not much to the plot. Rose was so forgiving of everything.

    I am a lover of historical fiction. I enjoy tales of 19th century life on the American frontier and I can't resist a sappy prairie romance.

    Story
    "The narration sounded as if it were computerized"

    If I didn't know any better, I would say that the male voices were spoken by a computer. The story wasn't very memorable either. This one is not worth a credit ... or the time necessary to listen.

    Story
    "Can you tame a grumpy cowboy?"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes, if they were into western romance without gunfire and explosions.


    What aspect of Robin Rowan’s performance would you have changed?

    Robin has a gentle whisper toned voice that made the female character sound a little like a simper, the male character voice was good but more strength of emotion in the story would have been good.


    Do you think The Rancher Takes a Bride needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No, Travis finally made the right choices at the very end and I could not go through that stubbornness and stupidity again.


    Any additional comments?

    Sorry, I couldn't relate to these characters and didn't like either of them. The story was good but it's hard to get into a story about characters you dislike.

    Story
    "The Rancher takes a wife"

    The overall story was a good one. I just wanted smack Travis through most of the story. He was such on over bearing brute to Rose. I wanted to see Rose have him locked up as pay back!!! I also wondered how far Travis mother was willing to let thing go before she spoke up too!
