Ruth Logan Herne in her new book, “Back In The Saddle book coverBack In The Saddle” Book One in the Double S Ranch series published by Multnomah Books introduces us to Colt and Angelina.

From the back cover:  The Prodigal Is Coming Home

It’s been a long time since Colt Stafford shrugged off his cowboy legacy for shiny Manhattan loafers and a promising career on Wall Street. But when stock market manipulations leave him financially strapped, the oldest son of legendary rancher Sam Stafford decides to return to the sprawling Double S ranch in Gray’s Glen, Washington. He’s broke, but not broken, and it’s time to check in with his ailing father, and get his legs back under him by climbing into the saddle again.

He doesn’t expect to come home to a stranger pointing a loaded gun at his chest— a tough yet beautiful woman Sam has hired as the house manager. Colt senses there’s more to Angelina Morales than meets the eye and he’s determined to find out what she’s hiding…and why.

Colt’s return brings new challenges. Younger brother Nick has been Sam’s right-hand man at the ranch for years and isn’t thrilled at having Colt insert himself into Double S affairs. And the ranch’s contentious relationship with the citizens of Gray’s Glen asks all the Stafford men to examine their hearts about what it truly means to be a neighbor.  And as Wall Street recovers, will Colt succumb to the call of the financial district’s wealth and power—or finally the courage to stay in the saddle for good?

There is a lot going on at the Double S Ranch which tells us that this is going to be a very interesting series.  Colt Stafford is the eldest son who walked away from everything ranch related in the state of Washington and moved clear across to the other coast in New York. He was doing quite well as a power broker but a transaction went bad so he decides to head back home for all kinds of healing. Angelina Morales is running the house and didn’t know who Colt was when she pointed the rifle at him. Now the two of them have an interest in each other but it isn’t going to be easy to develop because of secrets that do not want to be shared. However when Colt and Angelina get together the sparks really start to fly. I think Ms. Herne has given us first-class characters that we can identify with and relate to and, certainly, want to read about. I think you will enjoy reading this book and not want to put it down unless you finished. I recommend this book highly and am really looking forward to the next book in the series.
