Rusty Walker has spent her entire life trying to earn her tough, ranching father’s respect and approval by learning the business inside and out. But now her uncompromising parent has decreed she must marry if she wants to inherit. Worse, her husband has to be someone who can help her run the business. As if she needs it!
Williams Hill kissed Rusty in a bar in an act of temporary insanity, and lost his heart to her on the spot. Despite the complications to his own rodeo stock business, he agrees to marry the feisty red-head, hoping to woo her once they’re hitched. But she only views him with suspicion and resentment.
Can this soft-spoken Texas cowboy convince his proud wife, who’s never known unconditional love, that she is everything he wants?
I liked Resisting The Rancher…for the most part. While I do love a good marriage of convenience trope, I really REALLY disliked Rusty’s father. Nothing that happens throughout the story—including the ending—did anything to redeem him in my eyes and the only reason I didn’t drop a star was because he didn’t make many appearances throughout the book. But a guy who thinks his kid isn’t enough because she’s not a boy? Well that’s a character who I’m happy to see…never.
Rusty also took some getting used to even though I could clearly see what her issues were, because she was so abrasive and off-putting at the beginning of the story. Will though, he was perfection.
The plan to get married was a good one. Both Rusty and Will would benefit but when Will develops feelings for Rusty, he’s the one who has to convince her that her overbearing, misogynistic father had it all wrong where she was concerned. Will and his family were great. Loud and boisterous and full of emotion, which was fun to read as Rusty tried to get used to the Hill family.
Resisting The Rancher was a fun story that at times made me want to scream but for the most part it was a darn good time with plenty of laughs and romance.
