First of all, a huge thank you to Donna Alward for sending me a copy of this book.

I don't read a lot of the Harlequin Romance line (I'm more of an angst-loving Presents reader!), but I do like the line and I know that Donna Alward writes some of the best. She also writes brilliant cowboy stories, you should all know by know how I can't resist a cowboy, and this one is no exception.

A Rebel Rancher is sweet to it's very core. Full of heart wrenching reality, as well as heart warming hope, all wrap...more

This is my first Donna Alward book, and I find the heartwarming story here quite charming. Her characters burrow under your skin quickly, and you find yourself sinking deeper into the sofa to live and love with them.

Ty has come home, at the behest of his brother, after their father’s stroke. Having never really gotten along with his dad, he’s determined to make inroads with him this time, especially when it comes to the ranch and the ideas he has in mind to move into the future. But for all the...more
Very good book. I really liked Clara when I first saw her in the previous book (The Last Real Cowboy). She had been through so much, but still had the courage to move on and fight for a new life. In this book, I could see how far she had come - she has a job that she likes and is getting better about not hiding in the shadows. When she meets Ty, she has heard all about his reputation. But she sees something in him that reminds her of herself, and finds herself in the unusual position of trusting...more
What a great read!

Tyson (Ty) comes home to Diamond Back Ranch and meets Clara, his father's nurse. She's straightforward yet thunderstruck by her attraction to Ty.

He's the playboy rebel come home to see if he can make amends with Virgil his father and his brother Sam.

Little clues such as Ty leaning over the sink to finish off a home made sweet and opening the doors for women around him make us realize, as the reader, that he may have had several "Buckle Chasers" in his past but he's still a gent...more

The Rebel Rancher is your typical Harlequin book. Because it’s under 200 pages, it’s pretty simplistic in plot. I mean, there’s not much diverting from the basic romance. Don’t get me wrong, I know what to expect when reading these stories – a fast read, with a solid story line. And with Donna Alward’s newest release, we get just that. Nothing more and nothing less.

In The Rebel Rancher, the reader...more

Predictable and not.

Predictable and not.

This story was not just the same as Angela's and Sam's story, which I was kinda worried it would be so that was nice. but, while there were some slight twists, overall or was pretty easy to predict what was coming.

Moving story, with the heroine's abusive past heart-wrenching yet bittersweet at the same time. I'm glad that the heroine found happiness with the hero, and the hero found himself in this book. Nice story.
Fun second book in the series. Very sweet story. The Butterfly House is current and relevant?
Canadian cowboys... Not what I expected...

A busy wife and mother of three (2 daughters and the family dog), Donna Alward believes hers is the best job in the world: a combination of stay-at-home mom and romance novelist.

An avid reader since childhood, Donna always made up her own stories. She completed her Arts Degree in English Literature in 1994, but it wasn't until 2001 that she penned her first full-length novel, and found herself ho...more
