This is a duology, so what follows are two separate reviews.

I don’t read thriller romances much anymore because so few offer the emotional depth I look for beyond the tension from terror and a physical release. Daniels is one author I keep picking up because she can lace the real people stuff in with the murderer out to get them so that it feels like the developing relationship has a chance once the crisis is over.

I admit it I am one of those people who when I find something I like, I buy it in every color. And that's just clothes. When I find a book by an author that B.J. Daniels is just that sort of author. When I discovered Wedding at Cardwell Ranch, I totally enjoyed it. It was full of action, suspense, small town fun, family loyalty and a plethora of other great things.. not the least, a great plot.

This is a two-for-one offering with Rescue at Cardwell Ranch the fifth in the Caldwell Ranch series while Wanted Woman is a standalone story.

I did receive this as an ARC from the publisher.

Rescue at Cardwell Ranch
This is the fifth in the Cardwell Ranch romance series revolving around the Cardwell family with this story taking place in Bozeman, Montana. The couple focus is on Hayes Cardwell and McKenzie Sheldon.

Story 1: Rescue at Cardwell Ranch

This is the 5th book in the Cardwell Ranch Series. Hayes Cardwell is a Texas P.I. and goes to Montana for his brother's wedding. McKenzie Sheldon is the owner of a very successful real estate company.

After a late night grocery shopping at the local supermarket, Hayes was going to his car and saw a woman being assaulted in the parking lot. He immediately ran to stop the abduction that was happening. Th

Hayes Cardwell never thought he's end up being a hero when he travels from Texas to Montana on some family business. When he sees a woman being beaten and in the process of being thrown into the trunk of a car, Hayes springs into action to prevent that from happening, but would prefer to remain anonymous as he was just doing what any decent person would do.

Real estate owner and operator, McKenzie Sheldon thought she was one tough cookie, but that thought goes out the window when she is attacked

Whether you are new to B.J. Daniels or you have been a fan for a long time, you will appreciate this book! She combined two great stories into one book, this is an amazing deal!! These books do well together because they are both about strong, intelligent, independent women who find themselves in a situation where they now need the help of a complete stranger.

These are two wonderful stories put into one book. They are both about strong women who are put into situations that has them depending on a total stranger to help them out.

3.5 stars - 4 stars for Rescue at Cardwell Ranch and 3 stars for Wanted Woman

This book brings together stories from two of B.J. Daniels' romantic suspense series - Cardwell Ranch and Cascades Concealed.

First is the story of Hayes Cardwell, the PI of the Texas-based Cardwell brothers, and his rescue of McKensie Sheldon, a Big Sky Realtor, from an abductor. Having read the previous novels in the Cardwell Ranch series, this installment was what I've come to expect. There was chemistry and suspense

Hayes Cardwell is a P.I. from Texas that is in Big Sky, Montana for his brother’s wedding. He expected to spend time with his brother not playing hero. Luckily Hayes managed to save McKenzie Sheldon from a brutal abductor. Since then he hasn’t been able to get her out of his mind or his heart.

McKenzie awoke to see a tall, dark cowboy that saved her from an attack. Since that moment she has felt drawn to Hayes like a Western fantasy. The danger though is closer than ei

Great Book, Action Packed, Exciting, Nice Romances...

I really enjoyed both of these titles. They come from 2 different series. My thoughts on both:

Rescue at Cardwell Ranch:

I really enjoyed this book. It's the first in the Cardwell Cousins Series. The story line was very interesting. The book was action packed and there was non-stop excitement the entire book. The romance was nice and enjoyable. I really liked both Hayes and McKenzie. The rest of the family got me interested in reading their stor

4.5 Stars

Rescue at Cardwell Ranch was suspenseful and kept me on the edge of my seat, it had everything I love in a Romantic Suspense story, it had a villain that I could hate, it gave me the feeling that the villain might actually win. McKenzie and Hayes are great together, I liked that McKenzie is a strong heroine that wanted to stand up for herself and not let the bad guy win. I loved that Hayes was so protective of her.

It’s a quick read, but very satisfying. I was so wrapped up in the story

A serial predator of women finds that in Montana, with its relatively low crime rate, he can stalk women in small towns and the law have too much area to cover to catch him. At the start of this book one young woman in Bozeman, called McKenzie Sheldon, is grabbed in a dark parking lot and only her memory of a self-defence course saves her. As she's fighting to escape being bundled into a car, a Texas man who's just arrived in town spots the fracas and comes to her aid.

I totally LOVED these two stories, which were page turners. Both of these stories kept me up late at night just to finish them. This is one author who knows how to write a story and get you hooked. You find you cannot wait until you have finished it to find out who done it, but you hate the story is over. The author has many twist and turns that will keep you guessing until the end, she is full of many surprises. Just when you think you have it worked out you find you do not.

I tried my first B.J. Daniels story a year ago and was immediately hooked. Rescue From Cardwell Ranch brings another Cardwell brother to Montana. Hayes Cardwell and McKenzie Sheldon are two very driven characters. Neither expects romance or the danger that bring them together. I loved how both had to change their perceptions and how smoothly those changes helped bring them together.

B.J. Daniels has written another heart stopping story that kept me guessing the entire time. I loved how both Texa

I received this from Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.

This was a novel with two stories inside of it. The first one was easy to fall into and read. The second one I just never felt attached to it. The first story, Rescue at Cardwell Ranch the main characters were easy to like. While McKenzie did things that made you scream right along with Haves she was like the rest of the women. Strong willed and determined and you have to like that inside of stories.

Not sure what it was about Wante

To be honest I did not like much these two stories, they were more focused on the mystery and the threat that revolved around the protagonist rather than on romance. Especially in the second book, where the two main characters were convinced they were brother and sister until almost the end. Nothing to remeber.

In realtá queste due storie non mi sono piaciute un granché, erano piú centrate sul mistero e sulla minaccia che ruotava intorno alla protagonista piuttosto che sulla storia d'amore. Speci

The Cardwell Family novels from BJ Daniels will continue to be favorites of mine. I met the family in Christmas at Cardwell Ranch late last year and fell in love with the characters. I felt like I was visiting old friends again. In true Cardwell fashion, Hayes saves a woman from being abducted; and in cowboy fashion, he stays in town to protect her. Yet, the only way to draw the abductor out in the open is to have McKenzie be the bait. Can he keep her safe? Add in the extended Cardwell family an ...more

This was actually a dual book that rocked! The copy I got from NetGalley was Rescue at Cardwell Ranch and Wanted Woman. Both stories were great.

Rescue follows some of the Cardwell family. I haven't read any of their books, but it was certainly a great story. Hayes rescues a woman from being abducted and trust me, you'll be guessing until the end as to who it is. The story is dramatic and sexy at the same time. It was a great read!

1st Rescue at Cardwell Ranch: ok there was a lot going on; wedding plans, opening a new bbq location, guys who just cant understand no, a serial killer and the serial killers wife who knew the whole time. It took me awhile to figure out who the serial killer was but what threw me for the loop was when the serial killer's wife was in her hospital room and was giving a hateful look because she was mad that the woman was alive and her husband was dead.

The hero who comes in and saves the lady is always a great story. The combination of the two characters just seem to flow as you read it. I like the idea of the good Samaritan coming to the rescue of someone in need.

This book had 2 different stories as the title says. I am not sure which story I liked better. But the Wanted Woman story to me had more action. Rescue at Cardwell Ranch reminded me of a episode of Criminal Minds. These are pretty quick reads if you sit down and stay focused. I got this copy through Netgalley. This book is by BJ Daniels and Harlequin. This came out on May 27, 2014. So if you like a little mystery and romance these stories are spot on in giving that.
