I would recommend this book to anyone that enjoys a good love torn story. I love old west stories especially set in Texas!!
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.
This is the first book I have listened to narrated by Robin Rowan, I enjoyed her portrayal of the characters!
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".
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!
