Small-Town Girl, Big-Time Crush

Amy Wilson longs to escape the pointed barbs and knowing looks that come with having a certain reputation in a small town. A temp job with CEO and rancher Jack Shepard seems to offer a way out, if only she can stay focused on her goal.

Former world-class athlete Jack is as relationship-phobic as they come, so he's not worried that the soul-s

I really loved this story. While Alward does paint her small town universe with the requisite charm, I love how in this story the heroine realizes she needs to get the heck out of said town if she wants to move forward with her life. I also LOVED, LOVED, LOVED that the heroine didn't fall into old patterns once she developed feelings for the hero. That she realized that she had enough on her plate with fixing herself, she didn't want to waste her time fixing him - especially if he was not inclin ...more

Lovely conclusion to the Cadence Creek series. Amy is tired of being the focus of everyone's scorn and gossip and just wants to get away. When she finds out that Jack needs a temporary assistant at his guest ranch, she offers her services. She's attracted to him but she has plans for her future and he's not part of them. Meanwhile, Jack is just as attracted but he doesn't do relationships so he's going to try to keep his distance.

I liked Amy and Jack, though each of them irritated me at differen

Her Rancher Rescuer is the final book in Donna Alward’s Cadence Creek Cowboys series and Amy and Jack’s story is a great ending to the series. Both have events in the past could keep them from having a chance at a happy future. Amy plays a part that people expect of her and Jack helps her see she does not have to be that person. Jack on the other hand just can’t put a big mistake in his past where it belongs.

I loved how strong Amy was and how she took control of her life and refused to let the p

This is the final book in the Cadence Creek series, which I am vaguely familiar with. However, I am not familiar enough to remember the main characters, so I had to go on what we learnt about them at the start of this book.

I like books where the heroine is thought to be a certain type of person, while underneath it all she’s a very different person indeed. In this case, Amy Wilson is someone everyone assumes to be flighty, a serial dater who is incapable of settling down

Another book by Donna Alward that doesn't disappoint. This book is just what I needed in a romance. The characters are interesting: flawed in a very human way we can relate to and like. The heroine was mentioned in several of her other books but it's so nice to see a closer look at her and see her perspective on things. And then get the perspective of our hero as he gets to know and care for her. Reluctantly of course. True love never just happens smoothly. But we see such great times and the sl ...more

I always enjoy Donna Alward's books, and was eagerly waiting her next Cadence Creek story. It did not disappoint. It was a pleasure to visit with familiar characters and to meet new ones.

Amy and Jack are each carrying emotional baggage and dealing with it in separate ways. They know there are sparks between them, but are both being careful to protect themselves, convinced that a relationship is simply not possible.

Thoroughly enjoyed reading Amy's development from the flighty, somewhat unlikeabl

This is a good romance. I like the characters. This is the sixth book set in Cadence Creek. There is one love scene. I like how Jack rescued Amy, then Amy rescued Jack. Lots of drama, & fun settings.

Amy Wilson is single and a big flirt. She worries about her mother being too lonely if she leaves town for school. She wants to make some changes.

Jack Shepard is a former world-class athlete, rich businessman. He never plans to fall in love again. He is attracted to Amy but does not wan

I enjoyed this quick novel about Amy, a small-town woman too afraid to follow her big dreams, and Jack, a millionaire rancher too afraid to follow his heart. They fight their way through their fears and meet in the middle – in love.

When you read three or four books a week, it’s a welcome break to read a novel that is so well written it takes no effort at all to consume. The characters were straightforward with enough depth to make them seem real. The plot moved forward quickly and easily, and th

I grabbed Her Rancher Rescuer on NetGalley because of a good review I read, and the other night when all my paper books were out of reach I fired it up. I read it in about 24 hours and I have to say it was worth it. This one was really worth your purchase.


Amy has always lived in the same small town, and always had a reputation as someone who can’t keep a man. She’s prone to diving in heart first and then getting hurt when things don’t turn out. Having grown up under the shadow of her father’s a

I am an unabashed fan of Alward's category romance and count HOW A COWBOY STOLE HER HEART as one of my all-time favourites. HER RANCHER RESCUER is a slower book, with a less sympathetic heroine and super-likeable hero. And then, Alward, in her cleverness, turns the tables: Amy, our heroine, rises to the occasion from flirt and flighty to smart, mature, and interesting; our hero, Jack, falls in our estimation as he uses his penchant for "rescuing" maidens as an impenetrable shield from his heart. ...more

Enter Jack with tissues to try and calm her. Her ends up taking her back out of the restroom while everyone watches and dances with her.

Her Rancher Rescuer was just an okay story. It did not really hold my interest. Amy Wilson feels that she is constantly under the microscope in her small town. She has dated quite a bit, but has never really gotten intimate with the men she has dated. However, she is very afraid of what people think and say about her. Jack Shepard rescues Amy from an embarrassing situation at a wedding reception, and he and Amy sort of become friends. When Jack returns to town to spend Christmas with his family, ...more

Amy Wilson has learnt the hard way that you can never escape small town gossip. She's not loose with her favours, or stealing attached men. She just dated a lot in Cadence Creek, hoping that each man would be the right one. She's still single. At a wedding she overhears a thoughtless comment and runs to weep in the ladies' room.

Jack Shepard, here for the wedding, thinks that this lovely lady deserves better than humiliation. He invites her to dance before driving her home. Amy recalls that Jack,

InHer Rancher Rescuer by Donna Alward, Amy Wilson has lived her entire life being judged in her small town, she was always found lacking in every way.

Now after basically being insulted and humiliated in front of all the guest at Avery and Callum’s wedding, Amy runs to the restroom to lick her wounds and plan her escape. Only as she is hiding there, some of the female guests go in there and begin to make fun of her making her feel even worse. Amy remains unmoving trying to remain unseen and plan

I really liked these two characters. There is so much depth to both of them and they both grow and face difficult things in their past. I LOVED how Amy stood up for what she really needed and deserved once she figured out that that was, even if it was going to be easier or she was going to possibly be happier by giving in to the easy route. I thought the epilogue was cute, also, as a coda to the series.

I love Donna Alward's small towns, feisty characters, and effortless style. Her stories are like getting a hug from a friend. Comforting, thoughtful, and sure to make you feel loved.
