Back in the Saddle (Double S Ranch Book #1) by Ruth Logan Herne.
Little description: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 that Sam 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?

My thoughts: 5 stars out of 5
Chasing away the past memories, Colt is forced to come back to his dad’s ranch. The health problems crippled the mighty Sam Stafford, but it brought his firstborn son back to his porch. Sam doesn’t expects for Colt to forgive him: for not being a great father this past decades, the death of his beloved wife rattled the whole family, leaving everyone torn apart and wounded. But as the accident happened, it brought the family back. Is it possible again for Colt to settle here- the place he vowed he would never return again? Trying the saddle again made him remember who he is…the son of the cowboy lineage. Better yet he caught the eye of the woman who bosses around as the kitchen maid…
When past collides with the future, and the pain wrestles with the healing. Is it possible for love to kindle in his heart?
I could only say great read.
