(on-sale 10/6, Avon Impulse)
Darlene Panzera returns with a sweet new Western series perfect for fans of Debbie Macomber’s heartwarming romances
Bree Collins has finally come home to Fox Creek, Montana, to manage her family’s guest ranch. She knows she can handle any challenges that come her way, but when the infuriating Ryan Tanner reappears in her life, Bree suddenly has doubts about her ability to stay professional—and away from the handsome cowboy.
Ryan Tanner is in a bind. He needs to train a young foal for the upcoming show but its mother would rather bite his hand off. Just his luck the cute cowgirl from his past arrives back in town. Bree just so happens to have a reputation for taming animals of this nature. Ryan is willing to make a deal with her, but he has no intention of being swayed by her sweet smile or the tenderness she shows his young son.
Yet when fate brings them together, falling for one another becomes the easiest thing in the world. Ryan might just want to wrangle this cowgirl’s heart…but will Bree give him the chance?



 She walked over and tugged on Puzzles and Games, a newer book wedged tightly between the thick, dusty jackets of The Secret History of Yellowstone Country, and Ranching
Ain’t What It Used To Be.
And the entire book case leaned toward her.
     Catching the frame of the shelves with her hands, she spun around, and used her body weight to shove the burdensome book beast back into position. But every time she stepped away, the case threatened to fall. Somehow the bottom had become unbalanced. She glanced at the clerk behind the counter and opened her mouth to call for help. Then Ryan Tanner
walked toward her and she involuntarily jumped in place.
     They’d grown up together, riding the same school bus and sharing the same classes day after day right up through the twelfth grade. But after high school she’d relocated to New York to attend college. Then she put her business degree and love of fashion together to
snatch the assistant managerial position at the Manhattan branch of Silvain’s, a national fashion retail conglomerate which specialized in hip clothing and accessories. Over the years she’d run into Ryan only briefly during her occasional visits home.
     And she had no desire to see him now.
     Ryan was the kind of guy a girl dreamed about but could never have. At least not exclusively. He was a charmer who took the opportunity to flirt with every female he met. And he’d tried to charm her the night of their high school senior prom, the night her horse died, in an attempt to delay her from getting home too soon…and saying goodbye.
     Of course, they were adults now, both almost twenty-seven, she with her glowing resume and he with a seven-year-old son. She thought she’d forgiven him and let bygones be bygones.
     She was wrong.

Review of Montana Hearts: Her Weekend Wrangler

Review (4 Stars):  Montana Hearts: Her Weekend Wrangler was a tender-hearted cowboy romance that will definitely pull on your heart strings.  I instantly connected with Bree as she returned home to help care for her father and pick up the pieces of her past.  Being home was difficult for Bree because she was forced to deal with the painful memories of the past and the feelings that she thought were buried for a certain cowboy who always seems to be there when she doesn’t need him.  Ryan has always had feelings for Bree but past mistakes prevented these two from getting together but now that they need each other’s help, things are definitely heating up.  Will Bree give Ryan a second chance on love or will the past prevent them from finally having a future?

I loved Bree and Ryan together and you could see the chemistry they had with one another coming from the pages.  Bree had to deal with her painful memories and just by helping Ryan, she was able to deal with those emotions and make a fresh start.  You could tell that training horses was difficult for her but she was willing to do anything to help her family and in the end, it helped her close a chapter in her life so she could finally move on.  I loved Montana Hearts: Her Weekend Wrangler and I can’t wait to read more from Ms. Panzera.
