Review Rating: * * * * * (5 stars)
This was the first book I've read by this talented author, but it won't be the last. I now intend to read her other stories about these Travers brothers and their adventures in finding and keeping their women.
Back of the Book:
Hannah was about to lose her ranch. Rusty was her reluctant hero. He'd just lost the only woman he'd ever loved, he wasn't about to fall for this Hannah gal. There was only one way to protect his investment...he'd have to marry her. After all, Texas was a community property state! He couldn't lose. Or could he? She'd share everything but her heart with him. And then suddenly everyone was calling him Hannah's Man.
In Hannah's Man, following true cowboy style, Rusty Travers sees a woman in distress and reluctantly goes to her rescue. Hannah has secrets and one of them is that her ranch is mortgaged to the hilt. In order to save her home, she has to rely on this cowboy she doesn't know and has no reason to trust. A great play on the cowboy coming to the rescue theme by Ms. Hestand.
Then Rusty and Hannah begin to find a lot of traits they like and respect in each other. But that's only after some very entertaining interaction. Ms. Hestand balances the conflict and the attraction expertly and has you turning pages to see what could possibly happen next.
And just when you think the problems are all wrapped up and this couple is on the way to riding off into the sunset, there's a surprise call for Rusty from home that might change everything.
This story was extremely entertaining and provided a welcome escape after a hard day. I loved it and would highly recommend it. I gave this book 5 stars and will save it to read again. I am definitely looking forward to Ms. Hestand's other works.
