Publisher's Summary

Rough, raw, and rugged.

As the man in charge at Ravenswood Ranch, Shane Nelson has never been afraid to get his hands dirty. His sculpted physique isn't the product of a gym, but of years of hard labor under a relentless sun. His straightforward, alpha tendencies come from a man who knows what he wants and goes after it - and what he wants is Rachel Waters. He's never stopped wanting her.

They were childhood best friends, then teenage lovers who evolved into soulmates. But on one fateful night, Shane made a grave mistake, breaking both their hearts in the process. Now, after six years, Rachel is back in the small, wild mountain town of North Ridge, British Columbia.

Ready to face her past. Ready to face Shane. Ready to face his dark secret. But is a second-chance at a one true love in the cards? Or will their wild hearts be broken once again?

Critic Reviews

"I'm a sucker for second-chance romances, and Karina Halle had me eating out of her hand. Wild Card gripped my heart and had me head over heels in love! A must read for those who believe in what was meant to be." (A.L. Jackson, New York Times best-selling author)

Canadian Cowboy love

I read this book before I listened to it. Wild Card is a great second chance romance between two childhood friends. I really felt the love between the two characters. Shane was a serious rancher working at the family farm. He lived a rugged, country lifestyle with his family. Rachel was a young career woman living in Toronto with a checkered past. Admittedly, she created a new life for herself far away in a big city that wasn't exactly making her happy. Shane and Rachel were childhood sweethearts. They were forced to breakup because of unfortunate circumstances. The reunite because of other unfortunate circumstance and Shane admits that he never stopped loving Rachel. He then goes on to mend what was broken between them.

I think that the audiobook fell short because of the narrators. I felt as though they didn't fit the characters in the book. Shane seemed so serious and quiet and Alexander Cendese had more of a playful tone. Where as Alexandra Shawnee was more serious She seemed older than the mid twenty-something Rachel. I also thought their imitation of male/ female characeters were a bit odd. It seemed like a disconnect between the story I read and the story I heard (based on the delivery)

Ultimately I liked Wild Card but I'd skip the audiobook and just read this one.

Fantastic!

I loved this so much. It's such a sensitive and real life story and the narrators were top notch! I found myself really drawn in and listened to it in two days. Bring on the next!

Great story but....

I loved the story. Well the part I listened to. The only saving graces in this audio book was the story and the male narrator. The female narrator ruined it for me. She may have been better for another book, but she ruined this one for me. I think I'll skip anything she is narrating. Sorry:(.
