“He’s the kind of real hero that can make your insides a little gushy and melty.”
~ Under the Covers

When I think back on my favorite cowboy stories, I don’t have to think far to think about Vivian Arend.  Her Six Pack Ranch series always hits the top of that list!  So when I saw she was spinning off from that into this new series, I was beyond excited.  Even if I’m a little behind on finishing reading that one.

This series is about the Stone siblings and we are kicking things off with the eldest, Caleb.  He’s had a lot of responsibility on his shoulders from a very early age.  Taking care of the ranch and raising his siblings after his parents died, marrying his then girlfriend after getting her pregnant because knew that’s what he was supposed to do.  But life hasn’t worked out peachy for him and after his wife up and left him with his two daughters, it’s now become more than he can handle alone and it’s time to hire a nanny.

Oh but Caleb is everything delicious you could want in a grumpy cowboy hero.  He’s a simple man with simple desires and that can be both good and bad at times.  Sometimes he sees the obvious, sometimes he’s oblivious to what his next step should be.  I adored him!  He’s the kind of real hero that can make your insides a little gushy and melty.  Especially when you see how he truly cares for his family and that extends to every single member of it.

Tamara is our Six Pack Ranch transplant and she’s looking for the place she belongs.  This was meant to be a temporary stepping stone for her to figure out what that place should be.  Except it turned into the right place for her.  It felt natural to me, the way she integrated with the family and the way she fit in.  I loved seeing her there from the very beginning!

A RANCHER’S HEART gave us that family feel that Ms. Arend is so good at.  It made me care for everyone we got to meet and has left me anxious to read the next one.

About Vivian Arend

Vivian Arend in one word: Adventurous. In a sentence: Willing to try just about anything once. That wide-eyed attitude has taken her around North America, through parts of Europe, and into Central and South America, often with no running water.

Her optimistic outlook also meant that when challenged to write a book, she gave it a shot, and discovered creating worlds to play in was nearly as addictive as traveling the real one. Now a New York Times and USA bestselling author of over 30 novels and short stories in both contemporary and paranormal genres, Vivian continues to explore, write and otherwise keep herself well-entertained.

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
