Back in the Saddle by Ruth Logan Herne

About the Book
Start reading the first chapter here.
The prodigal is coming home. 

It's been a long time since Colt Stafford shrugged off his cowboy legacy for shiny Manhattan loafers and a promising career on Wall Street. But when stock market manipulations leave him financially strapped, the oldest son of legendary rancher Sam Stafford decides to return to the sprawling Double S ranch in Gray's Glen, Washington. He's broke, but not broken, and it's time to check in with his ailing father, and get his legs back under him by climbing into the saddle again.

He doesn't expect to come home to a stranger pointing a loaded gun at his chest-a tough yet beautiful woman that Sam hired as the house manager. Colt senses there's more to Angelina Morales than meets the eye and he's determined to find out what she's hiding... and why. 

Colt's return brings new challenges. Younger brother Nick has been Sam's right-hand man at the ranch for years and isn't thrilled at having Colt insert himself into Double S affairs. And the ranch's contentious relationship with the citizens of Gray's Glen asks all the Stafford men to examine their hearts about what it truly means to be a neighbor.  And as Wall Street recovers, will Colt succumb to the call of the financial district's wealth and power-or finally the courage to stay in the saddle for good?

Readers who love cowboys and romance will not want to miss Ruth Logan Herne’s Back in the Saddle. The start to her new Double S Ranch series, this novel introduces a family and a town desperately in need of redemption, reconciliation, restoration and delivers a story full of heartwarming healing and hope. I loved it.

Colt Stafford and Angelina Morales both escape to the Double S Ranch when the mistakes of their pasts leave them with few options. As they contemplate the possibilities for their futures, life at the ranch, filled with hard work, scenic views, and faithful reflection, draws them more and more to it and each other. Their story together steadily unfolds with plenty of emotion, drama, and romance amid unexpected events and important decisions, all the way to a satisfying end. 

From start to finish, Back in the Saddle had me enjoying every moment, and I believe it will leave interested readers feeling very much the same. I recommend it.
