    "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.

    "Pride can blind you to the Truth"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book to anyone that enjoys a good love torn story. I love old west stories especially set in Texas!!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like Rose's strength and honest conviction! She endured Travis' narrow unrelenting distrust and saw the man he really was and could be. She tried to do good for everyone she came in contact with and to face her fears to rescue and console. She is a lady without all the adornments.


    Have you listened to any of Robin Rowan’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is the first book I have listened to narrated by Robin Rowan, I enjoyed her portrayal of the characters!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I wouldn't say I had an extreme reaction to the book. There were several instances that made me laugh and some that made me want to slap Travis and tell him to get off his "high horse".


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed this story of love catching even the most "stubborn" man unaware. That believing and protecting your family blindly may lead to unexpected awakenings. Now I will have to get the next book in the series, as well as print edition!! Great read!!

    Overall, the narrator did a good job allowing the listener to distinguish between each character who was speaking. The Rancher Takes a Bride is an entertaining western romance with enjoyable characters and an engaging storyline!
