Widow Sophie Armstrong is just as focused on her goals—and on raising her two young children…alone. Meeting the rugged cowboy changes everything. Tanner is a natural with her kids, and he lightens Sophie’s load in ways she couldn’t have imagined. But as the shadows in his past come between them, Tanner must convince Sophie he’s a man she can count on—for keeps.
I really enjoyed The Rancher’s Family Wish. I found Tanner to be really a great character. He has had a hard life – being abandoned as a newborn by his birth mother, in and out of foster care, plus living it ruff on the streets as a teen. He was such a caring man, giving away money or meals to the needy or homeless people as he knows how they feel as he was once in their shoes.
All throughout the book, you can tell he desperately wanted a family to call his own as he never had one plus he craves the approval of Sophie when he does things or makes decisions. Tanner was pretty smitten with Sophie from the start pus he was so good with her children. I liked how Beth called him ‘ Mr Cowboy’ all throughout the book.
A short read – 215 pages – but a very good one, none the less. Definitely worth the read if you like heroes who are down on their luck, gets a second chance to better his life, plus craves the love of a good woman and family.
