Romancing The Ranger (Cotton Creek # 1)

BR Romancing The Ranger


She’s getting out of the city and into his heart…

Reese Hudson meant to destroy mementos from her last failed relationship, not burn down an outhouse and incur the wrath of a sexy park ranger. When the judge rejects her offer to pay for the structure and sentences her to rebuild it—with the hot ranger supervising—she embraces the challenge to take control of her life. 

Park ranger Wade Baker wants nothing to do with the rich city girl, no matter how tempting he finds her lush curves. She’s too much like his ex-fiancée, and if he’s learned anything, it’s that women like Reese don’t fit into his world. And he sure as hell wants no part of her big city life. 

Reese may not know a hammer from a screwdriver, but she’s working hard to prove she’s not just some pampered princess to be toyed with. And damn it if Wade doesn’t admire her tenacious spirit. If only they got along half as well outside the bedroom as they do in it, there might be a chance for them after all…


What happens when a city girl meets a small-town boy?  Wade is wary of women since his ex-fiance left him with a mountain of debt and a low self-esteem.  Not all women mind you, just the ones who have or want money as well as the finer things in life.  When he spots Reese in her flashy car in his park, he instantly dislikes her despite being attracted to her, even more so when she accidentally sets fire to the outhouse.  His nightmare only gets worse when he’s ordered by the courts to supervise her repair efforts for the next two weeks.

ROMANCING THE RANGER was a fun and cute read.  It’s told in dual POVs and I’m unsure at this stage if it will be a stand-alone or part of a series.  No other characters were really introduced in this book, so I’m assuming it’ll end up being a stand-alone.  I liked both Wade and Reese and thought they were a good match.  I really liked that Reese didn’t break down and cry after Wade tried to end what they had for a very silly reason, instead she chased him down and tried to change his mind.  Be warned, the main conflict happens right towards the end of the story and is resolved in the final page, which kind of sucks, but other than that, I enjoyed reading this light and humorous novella.
