THE RANCHER'S SECRET WIFE by Brenda Minton
Cheyenne Jones finds herself pregnant and alone in Las Vegas. She's scared and doesn't really know what she's going to do, when she runs into Reese Cooper. Reese is about to leave for a tour of duty in Afghanistan and decides he would help her out by marrying her, giving her money and insurance and after the baby is born, they would have the marriage annulled. But Reese returns sooner than expected, to Cooper Creek, no longer the cowboy he once was. Then Cheyenne shows up to check on Reese. There is a definite connection there but after all, they did had an agreement. But what Reese and Cheyenne need to figure out is that somethings agreements are made to be broken!
The Rancher's Secret Wife was a sweet and romantic story that I just couldn't put down. From the very beginning the characters completely captivated me. They were full of life and just a joy to spend time with. After reading this story I was looking up to see if there were other books available with the Cooper Family because I definitely want to read more about them. They are so connected that it just feels good to be around them. I loved it! Reese was exactly the type of hero that just makes you sigh. The perfect combination of tough and gentle. Cheyenne was a great leading lady. She was someone you could picture as a good friend. I loved all the little moments of seeing them together. Watching them tip-toe around there feelings. Very touching. This author did a great job of showing how God puts people in our lives when we need them the most. We just have to trust Him and allow Him to work. I smiled at the way Cheyenne described God as being like the voice on the GPS, urging us to turn around at the earliest convenience, to get back on the right path. A simple but practical way of thinking. I am looking forward to returning to Dawson, Oklahoma very soon to check in on the happenings at Cooper Creek! If you enjoy a good romantic story with some wonderful family dynamics then head on out to the Ranch! Maybe I'll see ya there!
