Everything's bigger in Big Sky country, including the hearts of the Montana Men...

After years on the rodeo circuit, Gabe Bowden wants nothing more than land of his own and a woman who will claim his heart for more than one night. When he has the chance to buy the enormous Wolf Ranch spread, he snaps up the incredible deal. Everything is set, until Gabe rescues a woman on the deserted, snowy road leading to the property, and the half-frozen beauty changes everything.

Ella Wolf rushes to her family's abandoned Montana ranch after her twin sister is murdered. She knows she's next... unless she can uncover a secret hidden somewhere at Wolf Ranch. The last thing Ella expects is to be rescued by a rugged rancher with his own agenda. A man who almost makes her forget how dangerous love can be.

As an unlikely partnership sparks into something so much more, and a killer closes in, can Ella and Gabe learn to trust one another before it's too late?

I have seen this book around, and seen wonderful reviews of it. So when I got a chance to read it, of course I jumped at the chance. And it was sooo good. I am so glad that I got a chance to read it.  I mean, the book starts with these stereotypical characters, but then the author gives each one this subtle twist, and suddenly you realize that they aren't who you thought they were. It was masterfully done. I kept being pleasantly surprised by reactions to situations and obstacles in the story.

Ella Wolf is running for her life. Her uncle thinks she is just some party girl, stumbling through her glamorous life, doing the minimum to get by. When she has a front row seat to his cold blooded murder of her twin sister, she has to prove him wrong... or she is next.

Gabe Bowen sunk everything he had into his deal to buy Wolf Ranch. Yet when Ella shows up and opens his eyes to the truth about the deal he had made with her uncle, he doesn't hesitate to offer her help. There was a lot of chemistry between these two, but what I really liked was their openness and honesty with each other.

The perfect mix of action, suspense, and romance, all set in Montana cowboy country. I really enjoyed this and am wondering why I haven't discovered Jennifer Ryan before now. I am giving this 5 stars.

Thank you to Tasty Book Tours and Avon Books for the opportunity to read and review this book.

Everything's bigger in Big Sky country, including the hearts of the Montana Men

Wide open sky, rolling green hills... Gillian Tucker could get used to life in the country—one far from the violence she left behind in San Francisco. Warily accepting an invitation to the Montana ranch that belongs to her grandfather, a man she's never met, Gillian hopes this is the haven she seeks. A sexy, overbearing cowboy who shines a light on her well-hidden dreams is not at all part of her plans.

Blake Bowden's reckless past is far behind him, and as a newly named co-owner of Three Peaks Ranch, he's not taking any chances. Until a beautiful, haunted woman arrives, igniting a desire he shouldn't feel. His partner's granddaughter is strictly off limits. But the longer Gillian's there, the stronger the pull grows between them. And when a new danger surfaces, Blake will do anything to keep her safe…even if it means risking everything for her heart.
Avon is hosting a Tour Wide Giveaway of A Welcome to Montana Gift Basket.
