Back in the Saddle By Ruth Logan Herne

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?

This was the fist book that I have read by Herne, it sure is not going to be my last. I loved the is sweet love story and I loved the prodigal son and his heart. Such a kind, giving heart Colt has. You are going to fall in love with him as well, I'm sure.
There is bound to be another book it ended leaving me wanting answers about Nicks kids and wedding plans so I will be watching for book number two in this series Double Ranch.
I would like to give you a warning: You need to plan when you are going to read this book around your job, family house cleaning because once you open it up and start reading you will not be able to put it down to take care of anything else.
I gave this book 5 stars two times. I HIGHLY recommend it.
I was given a copy of this book bu the publisher for my honest review.
