Peek Inside Romancing the Ranger

When Reese Hudson accidentally sets fire to a park structure, she’s sentenced to rebuild it herself under the supervision of the sexy park ranger who helped her put out the blaze. But Wade Baker wants nothing to do with a rich city girl like Reese, no matter how tempting he finds her tenacious spirit or her lush curves. Women like her don’t fit into his world. But if they could work together half as well outside the bedroom as in it, there might be a chance for them after all...

She’s getting out of the city and into his heart…

Reese Hudson meant to destroy mementos from her last failed relationship, not burn down an outhouse and incur the wrath of a sexy park ranger. When the judge rejects her offer to pay for the structure and sentences her to rebuild it—with the hot ranger supervising—she embraces the challenge to take control of her life.

Park ranger Wade Baker wants nothing to do with the rich city girl, no matter how tempting he finds her lush curves. She’s too much like his ex-fiancée, and if he’s learned anything, it’s that women like Reese don’t fit into his world. And he sure as hell wants no part of her big city life.

Reese may not know a hammer from a screwdriver, but she’s working hard to prove she’s not just some pampered princess to be toyed with. And damn it if Wade doesn’t admire her tenacious spirit. If only they got along half as well outside the bedroom as they do in it, there might be a chance for them after all…

Wade is a special kind of man, “holy crap! You got a fish!” He scrambled on the floor of the boat for the fishing pole, grabbed it and reeled in the line. “Grab that net.” Seriously?

Any book that boasts fish puns and sex innuendoes among its attributes is my kind of book. There are few things in this world that I find as amusing as a pun—good or bad—and as hot as a few well-placed double entendres. And Romancing the Ranger had me covered on those fronts. also had me co ...more

This is a fun, flirty romance that will make you smile. In it, Reese is a pampered city girl that runs into trouble in a rural park. That trouble is a park ranger, Wade, who has no time or interest in pampered city girls. What follows is a somewhat predictable attraction of opposites.

I gave this 5 ...more

I was gifted a copy of this book for an honest review through Netgalley.
This was a sweet, quirky, laugh out loud story. Starting a fire is not the way most people meet and definitely not over an outhouse fire. That's exactly how Wade and Reese met though. From the very beginning I was laughing at he ...more
