With their hearts' desires on the line, nothing can stop the Montana Men
No one knows better than Colt Kendrick that life can change in an instant. He lives without regrets except for one: not making the gorgeous woman he sees every time he walks into the local diner his. 
 Luna Hill is haunted by the heart-stopping kiss she and Colt never should have shared. Their timing has always been off. Just as sparks begin to ignite again, she is offered a job that will take her far from their ranching town. But when a dear friend dies unexpectedly, leaving Luna a staggering gift, she has a chance to stay and finally make her long buried wishes come true—even ones that involve the sexiest cowboy she’s ever known.
Not everyone is happy with Luna’s good fortune, and as they make their feelings dangerously and abundantly clear when she falls in their crosshairs, Colt will do anything he can, risk everything he has, to keep her safe. Because Luna showed him he has a heart...and it belongs to her.

My Review Updated

Summary 

Colt Kendrick has lived his life having no regrets and being proud of the man he has become and the family he is a part of. But there is one woman who causes regret, when a misunderstanding happens under circumstances under a kiss. Luna Hill can’t forget that weak in the knees kiss she shared with gorgeous cowboy Colt Kendrick. But when one of her closest friends, a millionaire rancher encourages her to make amends with Colt, he passes away and her life gets turned upside down. Luna has a dream of working with mentally challenged kids and setting up a horse ranch set up for them. Colt is her rock when she learns that she has inherited everything from her close friend that has recently died and his family members are out to get rid of her to make her sell so they can get everything. But Luna and Colt’s romance blossom despite the circumstances. Luna is determined to hold onto this legacy that her friend held most dear and not let it be sold into pieces just to satisfy the greed of his sister and sons.

Plot and Story Line 

Her Renegade Rancher is the fifth in a fantastic and emotionally charged series that I haven’t been able to get enough of. Jennifer Ryan is a brilliant author, and her writing is so engaging and I love the emotion she displays. Each book has definitely causes some intense emotions and for myself, that is pure talent. This story soon follows the previous book, Luna is Callie’s best friend. And our hero Colt is Rory’s younger brother. I loved these two together, and I liked that there wasn’t hesitation in building a connection to each other. Once they reconciled in the beginning of the book, they stayed together. It was quite refreshing to find a couple that embraces what they know they have instead of resisting all the time. Now another fun aspect was Colt’s family!! Boy I love them so much, and their bantering and teasing of each other especially when it came to Colt and Luna being together. What really makes the story is the conflict dealing with the family members of the estate she has inherited. Wow what intrigue and boy most of them except one—-are pretty horrid. But Luna and Colt really come together here and I loved how strong each of their characters are. Both are honorable and loyal and true to themselves. Their romance was heartwarming and I was touched multiple times through the story. I did admire how they fought for each other in different ways–very awe inspiring.

The Cover 

Not my favorite cover of the series, but I like the tone of color in this one and the backdrop is just beautiful!!!

Overall View 

Her Renegade Rancher is an entertaining and an emotional roller coaster that takes the reader through their paces. Its a story that is intensely gratifying and poignant!!!
