Readers looking for a different style of cowboy romance, with some kink and edge to it should find this a delicious book. Set in England, Hank might be a Texas rancher and far from home, but I feel the author has done a good job of blending the Western theme with the usually more refined style of English novel. I enjoyed both Hank and Rose as characters and found myself interested in them and their progress as their relationship bloomed. Spanking both with his hand and belt is a very strong theme throughout the book, though there is plenty of plot and character development too which kept me satisfied.
An intriguing mixture of English and Texan, this is a fast paced novel with plenty of spice in the erotic sex scenes. Originally posted at Long and Short Reviews. One person found this helpful. The English Rose had a choice and she followed her cowboy across the sea to explore a life her heart demanded. She blazes a path across the sea to join her cowboy in Texas and then the sparks fly.
There is a well-known saying in a land where mean are real men. Actions mean something to Hank and Rose finds out her behind will suffer if she does something foolish or dangerous. The strap hissed and kissed her rear leaving an unexpected blaze of fire that soon grew and consumed her bum. This first book of the series made my heart flutter and my butt squirm in my seat.
Abigail leaves us yearning for more bum squirming and breathless romance. This was a highly enjoyable story.

The truth of the matter is she loves her fictional persona, Leslie North, more than her normal, day-to-day persona!
Her bestselling books focus on strong characters and particularly women who aren't afraid to challenge an alpha male. Inspired after years of travel, her stories are set all over the world, from the tough streets of Russia to the beautiful beaches of the middle east. Leslie fell in love with romance when she first picked up a scrappy, dog-eared romance book from her local library. She began writing soon after and the rest, as they say, was history.
She now lives in a cozy cottage on the British coast and enjoys taking long walks with her two Dalmatians, George and Fergie. Leslie North is the pen name for Remember Me on This Computer.

January and Nate were high school sweethearts until she left. January is back and Nate is still in love. As they spend time together They both have to decide if their love is worth the challenges they face. Was this review helpful? Wow more than 5 stars!! Nat has been her only true love but upon returning to the ranch where they grew up she knows she can never hurt him again - she barely survived leaving the first time.
Nat is angry as he was the one left behind Problems and misconceptions twisted into a romance that stops the heart. Er war ehrlich, geradeheraus und sich immer seiner Verantwortung bewusst. Ich mochte ihn, weil er einfach ein sympathischer Kerl war. January ist immer rastlos und immer auf der Suche.
Denn eine Heimat ist nicht immer gleichbedeutend mit einem Haus oder einem Fleck Erde. January muss sich entscheiden, ob weiterhin auf der Suche ist, oder ob sie bereit ist, der Suche ein Ende zu setzen. Die Geschichte als solche ist recht einfach und ich dachte, dass mir schnell klar war, wohin die Reise von Nat und January geht.

Ich will nicht zu viel verraten, aber so viel sei gesagt: Nat, January und mich. Einen kleinen Kritikpunkt hab ich dann doch noch. Jede Figur hat ihre Ecken, Kanten und kleine Schrullen, die sie liebenswert machen. Von zu viel verdirbt man sich den Magen, oder in dem Fall die Lust an der Story. May 05, Marsha Spohn rated it really liked it Shelves: Reviewed at Keeper Bookshelf I always enjoy stepping into the world of a new Leslie North trilogy or series, and this beginning story to the Meir Ranch Brothers series is an emotional read on so many levels.
There is deep hurt here, some anger and confusion, loneliness and resignation as well. As much as I liked both Nat and January I also wanted to lock them in a closet so they would have to actually talk to each other and get some truths out there in the open. She honestly does not believe she has it in her to stay in one place for very long. Nat has taken on so much responsibility for the ranch, for the brothers who are off living their own life while he holds on to their family legacy by his fingertips at times.
The Rancher Takes A Bride by Sylvia McDaniel
He had dreams of his own that never came true because life happens and you get on with dealing with it not running away from it. Because of my often times battling emotions on this story, it does come off as very realistic and life like. That does not change what I think of this story.
It is my choice to leave a review giving my personal opinion about this book. May 01, Brigitte rated it liked it Shelves: This is a second chance romance where priorities differ, causing pain and uncertainty.

Nat isn't thrilled with the idea, but he needs the help. It turns out that January has picked up a few tricks in her travels, some of which become useful in the work involved. Nat is still suffering from their separation and tries to keep his distance to avoid history repeating itself. Sometimes, the heart has a way of dictating the head and in this case, Nat does what he swore he wouldn't do.
Put himself in the same situation as before. The inevitable happens and although he lives in hope, January intends to go through with her plan. Can they find a way to keep their love alive?
It's hard to comprehend January's attitude. She is hurting as much as Nat, but unwilling to compromise until the very last minute. Nat is patient and suffers in silence. His dedication to his family legacy despite all the difficulties is admirable. Somehow, I found January to be a little selfish. She expects Nat to change whilst she isn't easily deterred from her wanderlust. The good thing is that Nat gets to do something else that he loves. It's a good concept, but a little long winded in places where it interferes with the main focus.
It's a short read with a good ending. I was kindly issued with an eARC and the views expressed are my personal opinion. May 18, Peta Benjamin rated it it was amazing. Nathaniel Meier is one hardworking rancher. He is the last man standing working the ranch in Close Call. With his Grandfather and Father dead and his Mother off "finding herself", his brothers living their own lives, he has the weight of the world on his shoulders just keeping his head above water, let alone the keeping the ranch running to a profit. With the bank on his back and selling season in full steam, Nat certainly doesn't need the love of his life turning up after being off roaming the w Nathaniel Meier is one hardworking rancher.
With the bank on his back and selling season in full steam, Nat certainly doesn't need the love of his life turning up after being off roaming the world for ten years. January Rose was a wanderer, yes she loved Nathaniel Miller, but she was sure she made the right decision leaving the way she did.
Nat was not of the same opinion but the hurt was just as raw now as it was ten years ago. January was out of money, and was only back at Close Call to pick up her inheritance and be on her way to another work-travel assignment in Nepal. She was a bit shocked to find her mother Mona was living in a van on Close Call land. Mona was hoping January would stick around for a while and seeing as she was here now, she was going to make sure January got to work helping Nat herd the cattle ready for sale. Of course Mona knows how January and Nat feel about each other, and if she can get January to finally leave her wandering ways behind and give Nat the chance he needs to convince her to stay, she will use every trick in the book along with a little bit of guilt for good measure to make it happen.
Great read in the first book of the series and looking forward to reading more about the Meier brothers. Thanks to Netgalley and Relay Publishing for the opportunity to read and review this book. Wird sie ihm wieder das Herz brechen? Eine Geschichte die einem die Weite des Landes und der Welt zeigt. Manchmal ist das was man sucht nicht in der Ferne, sondern gleich direkt vor einem. January ist schon eine starke Frau, die ihren Weg geht und egal was andere sagen oder tun. Nat ist ein Cowboy, wie es im Buche steht, doch schaut man genauer hin sieht man so viel mehr. Man begleitet beide nicht nur auf der Suche nach sich selbst, sondern auch ihrer Liebe.
Man wartet darauf das Sie zueinander finden oder rennt wieder einer davon. Die Dialoge sind manchmal schon etwas abgedreht, aber das gibt dem Buch das gewisse etwas.

Ten years later, January has roamed the world, sending postcards from exotic locations. She has searched for that place to call home. Will she realize that Nat is her home? Can Nat take a risk to tame the wandering January? I was amazed by this book. I loved the characters, from Nat and January to Mona and Wes when he returned home. The plot was like a rollercoaster of emotion with the tension between Nat and January so thick you could cut it. I felt like I was living on the Meier ranch. Apr 26, Julianne Macneil rated it it was amazing.
I really enjoyed this second chance romance between Nat and January. Nat and January were high school sweethearts and Nat thought they would be together forever. One day January left to travel the world without saying goodbye. In the ten years since, Nat took over his family's ranch and January never returned, she only sent post cards and a rare phone call to her mother. When January returned home to get money from her inheritance, Nat is still angry a i read this book as part of an arc program. When January returned home to get money from her inheritance, Nat is still angry at her for leaving and when he sees her, he still has feelings for her.
When January offers to help out with the ranch to get ready for the auction, they are stuck working together. Nat will not act on his attraction because he knows she is leaving again, no matter how much they both want to. Eventually it becomes too much for Nat and he gives into his feelings, thinking January will stay.
January is a little lost and unsure of what she should do. She doesn't feel like she belongs anywhere, but she knows she does love Nat. This was a good story about second chances. January has to decide what is important to her and where she belongs. I liked how they really loved each other, even through the hurt and anger.
Apr 23, Jacky rated it it was ok. I didn't hate this book, but it didn't fill me with joy. I found it to be depressing. Everyone was flipping unhappy.
I read the reviews after I finished the book, and I was kind of sad because I couldn't understand the 5 star reviews. He had unfulfilled dreams. Her dreams were not turning out as she thought. One of the most optimistic people in this book was Nat's brother Wes, and he I didn't hate this book, but it didn't fill me with joy. One of the most optimistic people in this book was Nat's brother Wes, and he had just come home from being deployed.
A glimmer of light in the darkness of the storm. His book might be interesting.
I have to go read something uplifting. I absolved not get the HEA feeling. I received this book from Hidden Gems.
