Publisher's Summary

 

The old mansion down the road from Rachel's ranch has always been her escape. No one has lived there for years, and she dreams of owning it herself someday. So when she finds a handsome city guy walking around inside who claims to own the home, her world turns upside down.

Patrick's career is just taking off in the city, and he couldn't be happier. The news of his father's passing brings a silver lining when he finds he's left with a large mansion in a small ranching town - the perfect place to expand his business. 

But when Patrick meets the beautiful and fiery Rachel at the mansion, he begins to wonder if he made the right choice. Now, he must decide if his business is worth going home to or if he's willing to leave his city life for the woman who has roped his heart.

wow

From the very first chapter this book had my attention! The author did an amazing job on characters and their interaction with the each other. The narrator was amazing and just brought the characters to life and made you just want to join them. I did not want to put the book down! This would be a great book for anyone as I believe that it has something everyone would love in it. Great book to add to your collection and well well worth the money!

Fun, enjoyable listen

All her life, Rachel was looking to make the mansion into a hotel. When Patrick shows up as the heir and sole owner of the place, her dreams are up in the air. Patrick is a successful businessman, but always looking to make things more profitable. If he could just move his headquarters to the mansion, things would be so much better. Now living at the ranch while renovations take place and he gets to know Rachel, Patrick gets a glimpse at a different life. Will things turn out the way either has planned? Will their budding relationship turn to love? Will Patrick go back and leave the mansion? This is an sweet, easy listen with a couple that is fun to get to know. It's a nice change from the overtly angsty books and leaves you with a heart filled with love.

Sara K Sheckells narrates this book with the perfect voices. It's my first narration by her and I enjoyed her pace and her variety of characters. She easily switched between male and female voices and gives a very enjoyable performance.

Opposites Attract

This delightful rom-com involves two main characters, Patrick and Rachael who are struggling over the acquisition of a dilapidated mansion. Each have a unique plan for the property and there is significant differences in their purpose. Patrick being from out of town accepts an invitation to stay at Rachael’s family ranch and consequently, gets to know Rachael, her family, and the townspeople. The story is light, entertaining, and a definite must for those who enjoy romance novels. I was provided this audio book in exchange for a review however, the thoughts and opinions indicated are my own

Absolutely beautiful!

The story is very sweet and easy to follow, the characters are well thought out, and the descriptions of the area are beautiful. There is no conflict which is nice, the characters are dealing with issues, but the they do not take over the story. I own the book, but the audio brought out more of the underlying emotion and imagery.

The city boy finds love with the country girl

Upon the recent death of his father, San Diego businessman, Patrick, learns that his family owns a mansion...albeit one in total disrepair...in small town Idaho. Patrick needs a break to grieve his loss and decides to use the time off to visit the mansion.
Rachel is a country girl at heart...she loves her small town and working on her parents' farm but she has dreams of purchasing the old mansion and turning it into a B&B. She has been saving up for a while and has just about enough for the down payment...as soon as the mansion goes on the market. Rachel is not prepared to learn that the mansion's owner is in town to check on the mansion...nor is she ready for him to stay and renovate the mansion...or for him to relocate his business to the mansion. Rachel is even less prepared to fall for the sexy city guy who, it seems, is determined to worm his way into her life and heart. Patrick takes Rachel up on the offer to stay at her family's ranch and, over the next couple of weeks, gets to know the family and the town...and he likes them all. Moving his business to Idaho seems the best idea, if only his board would approve. Patrick is also falling for the perky Rachel but can he break through the walls around her heart?
This is a sweet quick story that will have you laughing, crying and wanting to shake a few ppl...it's THAT good! The narrator was perfect for this story...the change in characters was distinguishable and seamless. You will not be disappointed.
I voluntarily accepted a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Roping his heart review

What a sweet new aged love story.

We first meet Patrick on the day of his fathers untimely death, while going through his fathers office he stumbles up a feed to a property his family had owned for generations. Upon discovering the address he heads out to see what exactly the mansion and surrounding property has to offer him. Upon his arrival at the home he meets a local by the name of Rachel, who had been coming to the mansion for years and who has been saving just as long to buy the property to start up a hotel.

With electrically charged emotions between them both, they try to be as calm as they can be about there feelings for each other.

But what happened when Patrick says the wrong thing to Rachel about her singing. Can they overcome this or will stubbornness drive them apart for good, or will they finally be together like they want. But when Rachel finds out the truth months later, it changes her life for the better.
