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.

    "Love the story"

    The story is great. The performance was good. Only struggle was getting used to a softer man's voice from the narrator. But didn't take away from the story.

    "Totally enjoyed this novel."

    Good writing, only heroine deserved to be spanked on several occasions and very disappointingly wasn't.

    "Enjoyable, But. Weak Plot and"

    The Rancher Takes a Bride is very, very sensuous, not like a triple X rating, but it is continuous R rated. Sylvia McDaniel writes these scenes extremely well. If her character motivation and her plot was half as well done, I would have given this 4 stars. There is so much sensuous scenes that the plot drags. This book was on sale for a couple of dollars and it was a good deal for the low price, but I may not buy another from this author. Rose's voice was whiney and Travis' mom was too snooty. This may be the fault of the writer.

    "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.

    Story
    "Great Western Romance!"

    I so enjoy listening to a well performed book where the narrator is able to have so many distinguishable voices for the various characters that are fitting, along with the right emotions to convey the scene and conversations. The banter was well done too! I have read some books by this talented author and enjoy her style. Robin Rowan is a new to me narrator whom I will definitely look for in the future.
    I thought the author did great with the imagery in this book and the details were fitting of the times. The story moved along well and is a standalone listen. I am not a fan of cliffhanger books, and this is not one. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review.
