Another Addition to the Morgan Ranch

The Morgan men thought they left their troubled pasts in the dust. But one by one, they find themselves returning to the northern California ranch where the bad times began. Together, they have a chance to forge a new future based on brotherhood, hope, and love . . .

Professional rodeo cowboy “HW” Morgan has finally achieved his dream of competing in the national rodeo finals—but his career has come at a price. His twin brother wants nothing to do with him and a string of hookups haven’t warmed his bed. He’s got to get his head on straight—and the only place to do that is at home, if his family will have him.

Samantha Kelly isn’t sure what she’s doing at a new dude ranch. The army veteran is barely back on her feet again, still struggling to rehab an injury. But she’s willing to give equine therapy a try, even though her riding instructor is bold, brash, and distractingly easy on the eyes. As she and HW warily try to work each other out, slowly and surely an unbreakable trust is built—one on which dreams can be built . . .

Kate Pearce returns with another addition to the Morgan Ranch series. HW Morgan decides that it's time for to retire from the rodeo and find his way back home. There's a lot he feels needs to be resolved and this is the perfect opportunity to mend bridges with his father and brothers.

Following his twin brother's footsteps, he hopes to be welcomed back home to help at the family's new dude ranch. Things don't quite go as planned when his oldest brother Chase assigns him to teach a newbie, Samantha Kelly, how to ride a horse. Especially not when his new pupil decides she's happier trying to poke through his smiling facade. Sam, an army veteran and all around kick-butt heroine, is on the dude ranch for vacation as a favor to her friend.

I loved the romance in this story because it's not the ordinary boy meets girl and falls in love kind of story. HW and Sam don't really like each other in the beginning, and they have opposite temperaments, but somehow it works. It's not easy for them to come together and I love that they both had challenges to overcome to meet somewhere in the middle. Sam is scared to let go of her independence and when HW sees her physical and emotional scars he wants to sweep in and protect her.

The drama of the past has left a cloud over the Morgan family. The only way for it to dissipate is for HW to learn some hard truths about the past and to reconcile with their newly found sister. The Bad Boy Cowboy is a western romance with layers that peel away the deeper into the story you get. It is absolutely one to add to your read list as soon as possible!
