Bad Boy Rancher
(Rocky Mountain Cowboys #3)

Paperback & ebook, 368 pages
April 1st 2018 by Harlequin Heartwarming
He’s not the only one who needs saving…
But maybe they can save each other?
Dark, brooding, dangerous…and possibly suicidal. Renegade rancher Justin Cade was exactly the kind of man former army chaplain Brielle Thompson needed to avoid after escaping the horrors of Afghanistan with an honorable discharge—and PTSD. The whole point of moving to the remote Rocky Mountains of Colorado was to leave the darkness behind, not fall back into it. But falling she is…
In My Opinion
The Cades are back and most of them are moving on with their lives. But Justin is stuck. With the death of his twin brother, he has lost his purpose in life. When his daredevil streak almost has him following Jesse, he’s given a choice: jail or a rehab/counseling stint.
In Bad Boy Rancher, Karen Rock tackles topics that are difficult: addiction, depression, and PTSD to name a few. Each of the members of Second Chance is unique in their circumstances yet the same in that they are on their way to healing. Rock’s ability to humanize these disorders is top-notch.
Justin’s journey is not an easy one, nor is Brielle’s. Healing takes courage and hard work. If they’re both willing to stretch themselves, to open up about the things that haunt them, they may discover more than they dreamed possible in their lives.
Throw in a couple members or the Cade’s arch-rival family and moments of levity balance the harder moments well. Seriously, can the Lovelands please have their own series? I really want to hang out more with these men.
Now we just need to learn more about Jewel Cade and her relationship with Heath Loveland. Seriously, can the Lovelands please have their own series? I really want to hang out more with this family that has acted as voices of reason to the Cades despite their on-going feud.

Christmas at Cade Ranch
(Rocky Mountain Cowboys #1)
by Karen Rock
Paperback & ebook, 384 pages
November 7th 2017 by Harlequin Heartwarming
The Christmas they never had.
James Cade has one priority: keep the family ranch running smoothly in the wake of his younger brother’s death. With Jesse’s ex, Sofia Gallardo, and her young son, Javi, stranded at Cade Ranch over Christmas, this task just got a lot harder. The longer Sofia and Javi stay, the harder it is to imagine the ranch without them. James couldn’t save his brother from his inner demons, but he can give his nephew a secure future. Maybe more—if he can figure out how to trust Sofia, and stop feeling like he’s betraying Jesse. Because trying to stop thinking about beautiful, determined Sofia is impossible.
Falling for a Cowboy

January 1st 2018 by Harlequin Heartwarming
Doesn’t he get that she’s blind?
Barrel racer Amberley James wants to join the premier rodeo circuit more than anything, but she faces the ultimate hurdle when she loses her eyesight to a rare genetic condition. All she’d ever wanted seems out of reach. Giving up is the only option…until her best friend and local hero Jared Cade steps in. The last thing she wants is Jared’s help. But his persistence at encouraging her to get back in the saddle is ridiculously annoying. And undeniably inspiring…

Karen Rock says
Thanks so much for hosting me today and for your awesome review! I’m writing Jewel and Heath’s book right now and Cole Loveland’s book comes out in September. After Jewel and Heath, I have books planned for Maverick, Daryl, Travis, and Sierra Loveland. I love this family just as much as the Cades and am glad you do, too- just wait until the epic softball blowout championship game between the Cades and the Lovelands in Cole’s book- I laughed so hard writing it for all the trash talking going on- lol 🙂
Suzie Waltner says
Yay! Can’t wait to hang with the Lovelands more!
