Publisher's Summary

Living with his stern grandfather taught Trevor Callahan one important lesson: Caring makes a man weak. Now the old man is dead, and Trev returns to Stone Creek for one reason and one reason only--to sell the Rocking C Ranch. Maybe then he can put his past behind him and move on. 

Beth Evans once confused lust for love and vows never to let it happen again. The bookmobile driver is trying to raise funds to build a new library. The late Hank Callahan bequeathed a million dollars for the project, but he attached one stipulation: Do not let his grandson sell the ranch.

Great performance and great story!

Have you listened to any of Jennifer O'Donnell’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I've never listened to this narrator before but thought she did an amazing job voicing the characters especially the little kids. She was able to switch from the wholesome parts to the steamy with ease.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The story is a wonderful mix of love, romance,and family. It gets steamy without being vulgar.

Any additional comments?

I'll definitely be buying the next book in the series. Wow!

NARRATOR READ THIS ROMANCE LIKE A CHILDRENS BOOK??

What disappointed you about Her Reluctant Rancher?

The narrator read this romance novel like she was reading a childrens book. Was not able to get into it at all or connect with the characters because it all sounded very fake.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

annoyed

Reluctant Rancher

It was a pretty tame story. The worst conflict was the grandfather's will. The kid was an annoying brat more often than not. Precocious in the extreme. If I never hear a child say "pretty please" again, it'll be too soon! Someone needs to have a firm hand with that child or she'll run roughshod over everyone by the time she's 10, lol.

I've really tried!

I have really tried to like this author but can't even get that far. I started with the Diamondback Ranch series but could not take the narrator, Erin Mallon. By the second book I actually returned it because I was so irritated. Thought I would try with the next series but again the narrator was so bad I couldn't even finish the second chapter. Maybe it's me cuz others seem to really like it. I was disappointed but it was because of the narration. Sorry!
