Finally! Meredith and Gage’s story 🙂
About the book:
Starting over and starting a whole lotta trouble…
Meredith Anderson left her difficult past behind to create a new life for herself in Tall Pines—where she can be the independent, confident woman she always dreamed of being. Now she’s a partner in her sister’s wedding planning business, helping brides realize their happily-ever-afters…even as she promises herself to never fall in love.
Meredith’s sweetness and vulnerability brings out the protective side of rancher Gage McAllister—even though their worlds are miles apart. All it takes is one night for desire to take hold of them both, a sizzling encounter that can only lead to the promise of more. But Meredith isn’t looking for more, and even if she was, Gage is set to leave Tall Pines behind him…
Such a good read!
Rescued by the Rancher is the follow-up to
The Rancher’s Second Chance
; though if you haven’t read that one yet (and why? why haven’t you? ;)) don’t let that stop you from picking up this one–Ms. James gives you the important information you need to know here.
Our heroine, Meredith, is the older sister of Second Chance’s Melanie. It’s a year after the events of book one, when Gage found her outside the Tall Pines Ranch and carried her unconscious body into the house. He’s been fighting his attraction to her ever since, but she’s been too busy fighting her own demons to notice.
Or has she?
Mer’s trying to make a new life for herself at Tall Pines, and she’s decided that the new her needs…something. Not to be under a man’s control again–not ever again, thank you–but one night with Gage, the one man who makes her feel safe and protected, should be just what she needs.
Just one night…riiiiiight. 😉
Even though there’s a one-night stand at its heart (okay, it’s way more than one night–but you knew that going in, right?) Rescued by the Rancher is a PG-13 read–it’s part of the Bliss line, after all. Gage and Meredith’s romance is sweet and behind-closed-doors steamy–so much fun to read!
One of my favorite parts of this book is that even though its title indicates that Mer will be “rescued by the rancher”, she actually takes charge of her own rescue herself and already has a plan in place before Gage shows up to help. It shows just how far she’s come from the cowering shell of a woman we first see in Second Chance. Plus, she gets an HEA with a smoking hot rancher. Win-win!
