Her Secret Ranger
(The Men of At Ease Ranch #2)
by Donna Michaels
By-the-book event planner Beth Brannigan’s best friend dared her to kiss a cowboy. She should have said no. Instead, she said please…again and again. If her brother finds out she’s dating—okay, kissing—okay, sleeping with—one of his military buddies, he’ll kill her. Assuming he doesn’t kill his friend first.
Former Army Ranger Brick Mitchum isn’t a relationship kind of guy. But then he meets Beth and starts to wonder if maybe it’s time he settled down. She’s mysterious. Unpredictable. Curvy in every way he needs… And hiding something. He’s just got to figure out what.
Her Secret Ranger is the second book in The Men of At Ease Ranch series by Donna Michaels this is Beth and Brick's story. We met Brick in his brother Stone's book In a Ranger's Arms, he was quiet and brooding but there was something about him that had me intrigued. To me Donna Michaels writes in such a way that she makes her secondary and tertiary characters just as captivating as the main couple.
Beth has an overbearing family...or should I say brother, and boss that would make most people quit. Wanting to take a little time for herself she cuts loose one weekend and has a two night stand with a HOT cowboy that she not only didn't exchange numbers with but she didn't even get his last name...she seriously never thought she would see him again, but sometimes fate interferes and brings the hotness back into your life for a reason.
Brick aka Romeo NEVER sleeps with a women more than once because he has no intention of starting a relationship with anyone, well that is until he breaks his one night rule with a fiery redhead that he not only spends two nights in bed with but continues to think of her after she left town.
This story has a little angst but nothing over the top. This was a fun, sexy read it was fun watching this Romeo fall to his knees for his one and only Juliette.
