I have really been enjoying the Return of the Blackwell Brothers series! Each of the authors has written a story that works so well with the others. I love the concept of each of the five brothers being called back to help with their grandfather’s ranch, one by one, in a way only he can.

His family committed a terrible wrong
Ben Blackwell wants to make it right
The last time Ben saw Rachel Thompson was when her best friend left him at the altar. Now Rachel’s suing the Blackwells over river water rights. Rachel’s a triple threat—rancher, fellow attorney and single mom—and Ben’s plan to win in court hits a snag when mutual attraction blooms. If he divulges a long-held secret, will his family forgive him? Will Rachel?
I received a complimentary copy of this book. This gift did not influence my opinion or review.
Also in this series: The Rancher's Rescue, The Rancher's Fake Fiancée, The Rancher's Homecoming
Ben was quite the character. The struggle he had in not allowing himself to be callous was real. It was his defense against getting hurt. Again. Yet under his fancy New York lawyer’s facade was a man with a heart of gold who couldn’t stand by and watch injustice being done. I loved seeing his conflict and how genuine it made him.
There were several times when Ben swooped in and rescued Rachel. This tended to make her a little angry because she wanted to be able to stand on her own two feet. Needed to. The two times he did this as a lawyer (as opposed to when he did as a cowboy), were so funny! The second time he did this, I was laughing so hard I couldn’t stop for several minutes! In fact, I was trying and trying to just giggle quietly to not disturb my husband in the other room, but couldn’t keep it in.
If you enjoy humor mixed in with your romance and conflict, with a little baby added for the cuteness factor, oh, and with a handsome horse whisperer too, then you need to pick up The Rancher’s Redemption.
