When a shy woman inherits a ranch, she’ll have to find an inner strength to succeed—and open herself up to love—in this heartwarming novel from New York Times bestselling author Victoria James.
Sarah Turner has led a very sheltered life. So when her parents pass away tragically, suddenly she’s left in charge of the family ranch with little know-how but plenty of will to keep it afloat. Determined not to lose her parents’ legacy or her newfound independence, she needs a hero fast—not to save her, but to show her how to save herself. But she’s unprepared for the ruggedly handsome cowboy who answers her ad.
“Cowboy for Hire,” the ad said, and Cade Walker is quick to respond. Betrayed as ranch manager by his former boss, he’s looking for a new place to put down roots—without the pressure to prove himself again. Except when he meets his new boss, it’s clear he’s not only there to run a ranch but to also teach Miss Independent how to run it. But as they struggle to make the ranch flourish, they’ll both need courage if they hope to find a family…together.

My Review

This was by far one of my favorite books EV-AH!!! I adore Vivian James and her stories but Cowboy For Hire is now my favorite. Once I started reading it, I just could not put it down!

Sarah is in the process of trying to get a life and learn to manage it herself. She needs someone just like...le sigh...Cade. He needs a new job as foreman on Sarah's ranch where he can do a great job but not be beholdin' to anyone. They are perfect for each other's needs. In the process of him teaching her to manage the ranch, they become friends then he introduces her to his friends and it just goes on from there. It's a great story.

Now lest you think it's all roses and champagne, it's not. He gets to see her at her the middle of a debilitating migraine. As the ahem, proud owner of debilitating migraines I can't thank Victoria enough for bringing them to light in the story. Sarah showed and I agree that yes, they are awful and yes they can run your life but it's important that the person with the migraines not be babied and be allowed to decide what they can and cannot do. There were some other good, angst filled moments in the story that served well to move the story line along and were so important.

All in all, the characters were extremely well written. The backup characters were almost as well fleshed out as the H/h and the world-building made for a beautiful Montana backdrop. This is actually the second in the series, Tyler and Lainey's story being book #1 and you know I'll be reading that while I wait for book #3! I hope you enjoy Cowboy for Hire half as much as I did! 5 Stars plus Baby!!

Victoria James is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of contemporary romance.
Victoria always knew she wanted to be a writer and in grade five, she penned her first story, bound it (with staples and a cardboard cover) and did all the illustrations herself. Luckily, this book will never see the light of day again.
In high school she fell in love with historical romance and then contemporary romance. After graduating University with an English Literature degree, Victoria pursued a degree in Interior Design and then opened her own business. After her first child, Victoria knew it was time to fulfill her dream of writing romantic fiction.
Victoria is a hopeless romantic who is living her dream, penning happily-ever-after’s for her characters in between managing kids and the family business. Writing on a laptop in the middle of the country in a rambling old Victorian house would be ideal, but she’s quite content living in suburbia with her husband, their two young children, and very bad cat.
