3.5 stars

For five years Quinn Conway has been following and studying a wolf pack. He is one of the country's foremost authorities on wolves. When one particular wolf that Quinn has been tracking since a pup, is killed by a rancher he is livid. But Cheyenne O'Brien is not the wolf-hating rancher he envisaged. She had good reason to shoot the wolf which was hunting her cattle. As Quinn and Cheyenne get to know each other a number of mysterious and life-threatening fires threaten not only their liv...more

I have never read anything by this author before, but I will be looking for her other books now. Wow this story was so good. Grabbed me from page one. I fell in love with the Conway family. Loved Big Jim and Cole ( grandfather and father). Then the three brothers Quinn, Josh and Jake. There was so much love and laughter in that family that you couldn't help but smile and laugh with them. I was sad that the mystery of their missing mother was never figured out. But maybe it shouldn't be. Sometime...more

While I will read the next book in the series when it comes out, there were a few things that irritated me about this book, ie the villain being too easy to figure out early on, and certain words being used excessively. That being said, I do like these characters and look forward to what happens next with them.

Yeehaw, cowboy! I love western romances filled with sexy cowboys, and heart gripping heroines. RC Ryan is an author who combines both of those things and so much more with her suspenseful, sexy, and sometimes a little funny cowboy novels. I was so pleased to have the chance to read this novel. Not only is the cover drool worthy, the story was too!

Quinn Conway and Cheyenne O'Brien are absolutely perfect characters for this story. They were complex and vibrant, and lent the story the perfect amoun...more

Quinn by R.C. Ryan.

Wow, I gave this romance novel 4 stars! Not because it was an exquisite, edge-of-your-seat story, but because I finally found an author that can write and/or has a good editor and doesn't rely exclusively on detailed sex scenes to be the focus of the entire book. In other words, there's an actual story here. I would normally have given 'Quinn' 3 stars but after the last few disastrous encounters with romance novels I was so happy I jumped it an extra star.

Cheyenne has had a t...more

This contemporary Western romance embraces the experiences of a man who is deeply in love with his home, his ranching lifestyle, and the forces of nature that impact it. He has become a nationally known expert on the life and activity of the American Wolf and all this grows out of an early life encounter with a mother wolf and her pups, a family that was summarily killed by a neighboring rancher, just on principle alone. The deep grief he felt--probably hooked up with the ever-present grief and...more

Quinn by R.C. RyanA contemporary western suspense, this novel has several characteristics to capture your interest, including cowboys, a despicable villain and a love story anxious for the calm after the storm. Fun beginning to a new series!

I love it when a novel starts out with a poignant moment during the childhood of the main characters. The prologue for QUINN introduces us to three young boys who live with their father and grandfather on a ranch in Wyoming, just after experiencing loss in two different ways...more

Quinn is the first book in a new trilogy by RC Ryan centers around the three Conway brothers. This is my first book by RC Ryan, and I have to say I will be reading more!! I can’t wait for the rest of this series!!

When Quinn was young two traumatic events shaped his life path big time. First his mother disappears without a trace, and then he and his brothers witness an unnecessary killing of a momma wolf and her young pups. Now he not only works th...more

QUINN is a captivating start to R.C. Ryan’s new Wyoming Sky series. A sweet romance, an intriguing mystery, and a breathtaking setting made this book an enjoyable read. Ranchers Quinn Conway and Cheyenne O’Brien are brought together by an unfortunate incident, resulting in an angry altercation between them. It’s not long before they realize that they’re very much on the same side with a lot in common.

When Cheyenne becomes the victim of a string of troubling events, Quinn steps in to help. Someon...more

Does every step I take lead me somewhere?

Quinn Conway grew up in a rugged part of Montana knowing that nothing came easy or was handed to you. He had a great family that supports him, even though the mystery surrounding his mother’s disappearance still haunts them all. Quinn took his childhood passion for wolves and has made it his life’s work gaining a reputation and respect in his chosen field. While following one of his wolf packs Quinn happens to cross paths with Cheyenne O’Brien, a feisty f...more

The first in a new series, Quinn introduces the Conway brothers and their father and grandfather – along with the back story of the boys’ mother’s disappearance. Each Conway son has his own quirk, and Quinn’s is tracking wolves. When Quinn first meets Cheyenne O’Brien, he’s on the warpath after she’d shot an alpha wolf he’d been following. Then he finds out how wrong he was, and when Mother Nature throws them together, he goes along with it.

I love Quinn, and I love his family. Their relationship...more

Quinn is the first book in the Wyoming Sky series by R.C. Ryan. I rated this book a 3, but that's only because Goodreads doesn't give a half option. This book is definitely a strong 3.5 Stars.

Quinn Conway is the oldest son of wealthy rancher Cole Conway. As young children the family suffered a terrible loss when their mother, who was loved very much by her husband and children, just up and disappeared without a trace. Quinn stepped up and took care of his brothers, as the family moved forward....more

Quinn, Wyoming Sky Series by R.C. Ryan
What first attracted me to this book was reading the ARC of Josh. The scenery and nature called out to me that I had to go buy this book and have the author on email so i can keep track of the next book in the series.
This book in the series is about Quinn, the oldest boy of Cole conway. It starts out with when he was younger and his mother had just disappeared.
They have a ranch with cattle, mining and oil rights to companies that brings in a lot of money,...more

MY THOUGHTS
LOVED IT
The story takes us to Quinn, the eldest of the three Conway boys and since his mother disappeared when they were kids, has taken the brunt of the abandonment. So when Quinn, who loves nature and all it's creatures finds one of his now adult wolf pups dead, he blames the nearby rancher, Cheyenne. She had good reason to believe that this wold was killing her cattle. Cute meet? I guess for the ranching world, this is normal. The pair find common ground even though they seem to be...more
Sarah
What a great, great book. My absolute new favorite leading man. A lone wolf, pardon the expression, is transformed. Quinn was hit hard by his mothers disertion and transformed that energy into studing wolves, my absolute favorite animal ever. When Cheyenne shoots the alpha male he has been tracking for the past few years, his world is turnded around, and for the better, but a series of accidents threaten Cheyenne's ranch and her life, but Quinn will be there to help her through it all. An amazin...more

This is my first read by R.C. Ryan and I can't wait to revisit the Conways in Josh and then Jake. I really liked Quinn and loved Cheyenne (I may never hear Neil Diamond's "Sweet Caroline" the same way). I felt they had chemistry and thought their flirting was cute. I also liked that this hero is a cowboy (of course!) yet has another passion he pursues, but comes back to his roots. I did have a few questions about how these two had never met or ran across each other when they both went into the s...more
Judith
An engaging story of today's West and the experiences of the oldest of three brothers, all deeply impacted by their mother's unexplained disappearance. Quinn is also changed by an early experience involving the death of a wolf mother and pups, and ultimately becomes a nationally known expert on the life and habits of wolves. Tracking a pack for five years, the death of the Alpha also changes Quinn's life direction and embroils him in a deeper controversy and mystery surrounding a woman who owns...more
Hope Frost
I am a huge fan of RC Ryan, and was very excited for this new series. I loved the chemistry between Quinn and Cheyenne. I wasn't sure who was taming whom, which was fun to watch. The first few scenes had me in tears, and I wasn't sure I wanted to read a tear jerker, but I am so glad that I pressed on. That teary scene made Quinn who he is, and in the same way, each brother took something from that day. The brothers are all so different but yet so much of their blood is in the ranch. The "bad guy...more
Rachel- Goodbye Borders
Pleasantly surprised. I loved Quinn's profession. It's notable for his background as a rancher. Here in Idaho, most, if not all, ranchers despise wolves. The wolf hate is big in the state. So I loved his profession, outlook, and treatment of his pack. Even when something bad happens, it is understandable.

The big bad is obvious. Another thing that irked me (I don't expect this in historical or paranormal romances) was the lack of discussion about birth control. In contemporary romances, I expect...more

My Review:
I'm just going to do a quickie review on this one. This book just didn't quite do it for me. The book is written well...definitely no issues there. I just had a hard time connecting with the characters. Also, I knew right away who the bad guy was going to be so I couldn't even hang onto that to keep me engaged in the story. I have an ARC for the next book in the series, so I am not giving up on the series yet, but this may just be a case that this isn't an author I enjoy. We'll see. I...more
Jessica
I had higher hopes for the Wyoming Sky series, although to be fair Quinn looked like it might be my least favorite of the three. Quinn's story with Cheyenne is cute, but felt a bit like generic cowboy meets generic ranching girl. Don't get me wrong, I'm still excited to read Josh and Jake.
Heather
I just couldn't get into this book. It was very predictable and dull. I really like romances to give a little 'push and pull' and with Quinn and Cheyenne, it was just too easy going for them and with nothing standing in their way their relationship was also predictable and dull. I would also lable this story as a suspense story but once again, very predicatable. I don't want to give anything away so I'm just going to say that upon meeting a certain character it becomes obvious who's the bad guy...more

So you follow a wolf for 5 years, woman shoots said wolf and you find yourself attracted to same woman. Then to make it more beleiveable she dislocates her shoulder and is ready to work the next day. And oh yes, we have dad almost die from a heart attach and he,s back a day later eating dinner with the family. What part of this could even become reality. I know when we read romance that we suspend a lot but this went into alternate reality time.
Mic Tov
This for me was just barely ok. To me it was way to predictable. I thought the brothers "shared a laugh" way too often made them appear soft and sappy instead of strapping ranchers. I believe for others who enjoy a light read with very happy characters this may be ok... I guess just to fluffy for my taste.
Cara
I really enjoyed this. I immediately figured out the mystery aspect but didn't mind knowing where it was going as it went along. Quinn is too good to be true, but what else do you want from a romance? I can't wait for the other brothers' stories to be released. I'll have to check out more books by Ryan.

“I'm out to change people's attitudes about them. Wolves are a whole lot more than just predators who feast on a rancher's herd. They're smart and clever and loyal and courageours, and sometimes they do really stupid, silly things, just like people.” 5 likes
