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?

 

My thoughts:

Back in the Saddle is a wonderful story of faith, family, and forgiveness! From the eye-catching cover to the sweet treat on the last page, I delighted in everything about this western romance. Ruth Logan Herne beautifully captures the intricate dynamics of this ranching family and brings the narrative to life with great characterization, vivid imagery, and an engaging story line.

It’s been years since Colt Stafford left the Double S Ranch, and now the prodigal son has returned. What he finds at home is not at all what he expected, but he’s determined to get back in the saddle. Colt’s story isn’t the only one that needs to be told, though. All of the Stafford men are wrestling with the past in their own way, and I can’t wait to continue the series and see what their future holds!
