Resisting the Rancher by Kadie Scott
First comes marriage, then comes…
Rusty Walker has spent her entire life trying to earn her tough, ranching father’s respect and approval by learning the business inside and out. But now her uncompromising parent has decreed she must marry if she wants to inherit. Worse, her husband has to be someone who can help her run the business. As if she needs it!
Williams Hill kissed Rusty in a bar in an act of temporary insanity, and lost his heart to her on the spot. Despite the complications to his own rodeo stock business, he agrees to marry the feisty red-head, hoping to woo her once they’re hitched. But she only views him with suspicion and resentment.
Can this soft-spoken Texas cowboy convince his proud wife, who’s never known unconditional love, that she is everything he wants?
Resisting the Rancher by Kadie Scott is the second book in her The Hills of Texas series.
We pick up from the first book (Saving the Sheriff, Holly and Cash)
Rusty is hard working, and has spent all her life trying to please her father, and the smack in the face comes from her father withholding the ranch from her….. the only way she will get it is by marrying !!!
She meets Will at a local rodeo, and when her father’s ultimatum arrives, Will offers to marry her, no strings, no commitment, he will walk away at the end of it.
But Rusty isn’t sure, yes he’s cute, but why would he offer ?
Will is Cash’s brother (from book 1) and offers to help his sister in law out. And as the book progresses, Will actually falls for his feisty “wife”, and wants it to be a real marriage, but proving to Rusty that he means it will be no mean feat, her father instilled distrust into at an early age…..“Nobody does something for nothing” So will Rusty fall for her Rodeo husband? Or will her lack of trust push her further away?
It’s a good little read, and followed on nicely from book one, but you don’t need to read the first one.
