Description:
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 Review:
This is the first book I've read by Ruth Logan Herne but it certainly won't be the last. She is definitely on my list of favorite contemporary romance authors.

I loved how the importance of forgiveness was clearly written throughout this book. As each of the characters went through their own spiritual journey they grew closer to each other and became a true family.

Back in the Saddle is a modern western that meets all your desires in a book. The romance between Colt and Angelina would make an awesome movie. I can't wait for the next book in the series. Colt's brothers need their happily-ever-after's too.

My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐
I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
