Firelight at Mustang Ridge by Jesse Hayworth – Review & Giveaway
Ever since striking it big on a gemstone claim in the Wyoming mountains, Sam Babcock has known luck is on his side—except when it comes to the people he loves. When he forms a surprising connection with an alluring newcomer staying at his friend Wyatt’s ranch, Sam starts to question everything he thought he knew….
Needing time and space to heal, former daredevil Danny Traveler is camping out in a valley beyond Mustang Ridge Dude Ranch. She wants to take care of herself for once—and a sexy cowboy might be just the distraction she needs. But when Danny discovers there’s much more to Sam than meets the eye, she begins to long for more than a casual fling. Can she convince the confirmed bachelor that it’s worth changing his ways for a chance at long-term happiness?
Firelight at Mustang Ridge by Jesse Hayworth is the 4th book in her wonderful Mustang Ridge series. I am a big fan of Jesse Hayworth (aka Jessica Andersen), and have loved this series from the first book. What is not to love? A ranch in Wyoming, which is also a resort that is owned by the Skye family…. Hot cowboys…Fantastic female characters who become the awesome heroines of this series….Gran, who makes the best food…and above all, we get to spend time with all the characters we have met and loved from the previous books. When I start each book in this series, I can’t wait to see these fun and wonderful characters again, and when I finish the book, I am happy, content and in a good mood. Can anything be better?
Firelight at Mustang Ridge continues this trend of wonderful sweet heartwarming romance within a family type of atmosphere. We meet Danny, a new female heroine, who comes to Mustang Ridge to escape her family smothering, and have some privacy. Danny, who was always outgoing and athletic, suffered an accident the left her in serious condition for over a year, which also left her emotionally scarred. She has anxiety attacks when in tight or dark places. Can she overcome this in Mustang Ridge?
Danny arranged to stay in and RV, a short distance from the main house, where she can have the privacy she craves. The first night, she meets our hero Sam, who actually came to her rescue, and is left with an accidental black eye. Great way to start. Lol Within a few days, they both find themselves attracted to each other. Sam senses Danny’s fears, and tries to help her, while their romance keeps getting hotter and hotter. However, Sam does have his own issues, which started when his father was killed in a motorcycle accident a few years before. This stops him from having any long term commitment, since he has fears losing people he loves.
In no time, Danny begins to open up more and becomes friends with our previous gals, who have met their mates; Krista, Jenny and Shelby. In the midst of all the tourists and plans for fun activity, they are also planning Krista and Wyatt’s wedding.
This was a fun, sweet romance, with two people trying to overcome their issues. It was also enjoyable to watch the bonding of friendships, and the preparation of the wedding. Firelight at Mustang Ridge was a wonderful story, and Jesse Hayworth outdid herself. If you enjoy sweet romance, great couple, wonderful secondary characters, animals, hot cowboys on a ranch, you need to read the Mustang Ridge series.
