GIVEAWAY & REVIEW: Montana Glory by RC Ryan

 Description

The last thing in the world Zane McCord wants is a wife. But after returning home to the family ranch in Montana to help his cousins search for the lost treasure that is their legacy, Zane can't help notice that love and marriage seem to be contagious. Both his cousins have succumbed, but he refuses. Determined to stay a bachelor till he dies, Zane wants to devote his time to filming documentaries and taking care of the ranch...and then Riley Mason walks into his life.

The last thing on Riley Mason's mind is romance. Sent to the McCord ranch to save the family's accounting problems, she only wants to impress her firm in Helena and be on her way. Life as a single mother isn't easy and she needs to impress her bosses for a raise. But when Zane McCord opens the door, her breath catches in her throat and a desire she's never experienced before takes over her. When the McCords insist that she and her daughter, Summer stay at the ranch, she's forced to give in and before long, she's pulled into their search for the long lost treasure. But she absolutely draws the line at getting involved with Zane McCord, playboy and heartbreaker extraordinaire.

But as they all get closer to finding Coot's lost treasure, a dangerous series of accidents target Riley and her daughter Summer. Can Zane keep her safe while trying to win her heart?

MY THOUGHTS
LOVED IT

I have friends that adore western romances and I have read Montana Destiny.  I definitely understand what all the fuss is about now.  Montana Glory really took me away to another place.  I mean who wouldn't want a nice strong cowboy to take care of you.  Although, the cowboy in this story is not anything that I would imagine a cowboy to be like.  Sure, Zane is handsome, but what really surprises me is his depth and intelligence.  Riley is trying to make it as a single mother and wants nothing more than to give her daughter a better life.

This story is more than a romance though, you get a little mystery and adventure to round things out.  I really enjoyed the dynamic between Zane and Riley.  Even though I didn't read the first one in this series, I caught on quickly to the characters and I think this one can stand alone. Oh and expect to tear up a bit as well since there are several moments that will have you swooning for your own Zane. I need to go back and get the first one to complete the trilogy.  If you enjoy contemporary romance, you are going to love this one.
