Perfect is good.

Imperfect is even better…

City-slicker lawyer Jeannette Trenton is about as welcome at the Last Chance Ranch as a rattlesnake at a square dance. She's there to atone for one major mistake. But Jeannette's pretty sure righting her big wrong does not include thinking lustful thoughts about the ranch's new cowhand….

Zach Powell knows Jeannette's type—a wound-

This is the sixteenth book in the Sons of Chance series; I've read many of them too.

Zach, himself, is hiding out in the stables after giving up a lucrative practice as an entertainment lawyer in L.A.; he lives in an Airstream travel trai ...more

Riding Home is the sixteenth book in the Sons of Chance series by Vicki Lewis Thompson. This contemporary romance is currently schedule for release as an ebook on August 1, 2014, it was available as a paperback as July 15, 2014. Jeannette Trenton's name is well known in the small town of Jackson Hole, and on Last Chance Ranch in particular. She is the woman that was engaged to one of their beloved citizens, only to cheat on him with his best friend. Now she has come back to atone for her past ac ...more
I had forgotten that Blaze was Harlequins sexier imprint, so if you like books in which the supposedly extremely smart ‘heroine’ jumps on the cowboy a mere few hours after meeting him, then this is the book for you! This book, in the first 50% was about 43% sex…and very hot sex! Sex on the floor, in a bed, out of doors, in a shower…you name it they enjoyed it! Then again, this book is only 224 pages long so the author really doesn’t have all that much time to build a relationship between Zach an ...more

Sixteenth in the Sons of Chance western romance series and revolving around the Chance family. The couple focus is on Jeannette Trenton and Zach Powell.

My thanks to NetGalley and Harlequin for providing this ARC for my enjoyment.

My Take
This was sweet and very thoughtful. I love all the inward-looking thoughts going on in this one. That's not to say there weren't some rough patches, but on the whole, it's a great story that shows us the path Jeannette has followed to understand where she went wro

I know this series has been going on for a long time, and I joined in one or two books back, and I was surprised at how easy it was to jump into such an established series, and how easy it was to enjoy the character that the author put in front of me. I was really excited to read this book, I love the western ranch setting, and I enjoyed the other book I had read in this series a lot, and in the end I was really pl

The series started with Regan who caught his fiancée Jeannette in bed with his best friend Drake. Regan (Riding High) fled to Last Chance Ranch, Drake (Riding Hard) followed looking for forgiveness, then invited Jeannette to see if all three could be friends again. In their books Reagan and Dayton found true love. In Riding Home it is Jeannette turn to find love and a new direction in her life. Again all of the action takes place in a very short time span. Zach Powell and Jeanette click as soon ...more

*I received an ARC of this book free from NetGalley on behalf of Harlequin in exchange for an honest review*

Jeannette has been a big part of the last two books, Riding High and Riding Hard. She was Regan’s fiancé, at least she was until she was caught in bed with his best friend, Drake. Regan got his happily ever after in Riding High and even Drake found his in Riding Hard. Now it’s time for even Jeannette to find hers.

She may have done the most awful thing imaginable, but everyone makes mistak

This was a light read. Fast-paced, I actually found myself wishing that the book had more pages because the author didn’t have much time to build a relationship between the MCs. I also think that it’s easier to get into the book if you have read the previous two books in the series.
I liked Jeannette especially in the beginning of the book when she faces the mistakes she made but I liked Zach even more, the 180 in his life made sense and it takes a strong character to walk away from a comfortable
I received a free copy of this from NetGalley for an honest review, all opinions are my own. This is a book in a series but can be read as a stand-alone but why would you?! Go read them all! Jeannette Trenton ruined her engagement by sleeping with her fiance's best friend. She goes back to make amends for his engagement party.

What the high powered lawyer Jeannette doesn't realize is, the cowhand Zach Powell is more like her than she thinks. Zach helps her see the benefits of a quieter life whil
Is it possible to take the lawyer out of the city and teach them the benefits of the slower pace, beautiful scenery and the joy of working with your hands? For Zach Powell, leaving the blistering pace of being a high-powered attorney behind has gained him an inner peace and a chance to regroup and refocus on what’s important in life. When Jeanette comes back to the Last Chance in an attempt to atone for one of the biggest mistakes of her life, she finds the new ranch hand intriguing, and sexy as ...more

This was definitely an intriguing love story. Thompson uses the age old city girl falls for country boy but throws in one heck of a twist. She also does so with a flair for life, and for second chances. She adds in a touch of heat and creates a winner. Thompson has a knack for storytelling that draws you into this captivating world & keeps you there throughout her intriguing tale.

The characters in this novel are quite unique. In spite of all of their similarities they are quite different ind

After arriving at Last Chance Ranch to mend the fences with her friend Drake and her ex-fiancé Regan, Jeannette Trenton doesn’t expect much of a welcome from Regan’s extended family, nor does she expect to find someone like Zach Powell working as a ranch hand. Jeannette knows she’s there to fix things with Drake and Regan so romance should be out of the question. Right?

I’ll say this for author Vicki Lewis Thompson, she’s got balls. Big brass ones!


After reading some of the earlier stories, I was all prepared to dislike this, I mean what could Jeannette possibly say to defend her actions that resulted in the abrupt end of her engagement and last-minute wedding cancellation? The final part of this story becomes clear, and while I can't say I really liked her that much I did end up respecting her and understanding how she got to be the person she was, and why things turned out the way they did.

An enjoyable conclusion to the story arc.

I've read Reagan's story. It was the first book in this series I read. I wasn't impressed. It didn't really excite me. But this book, I loved it. Jeanette and Zach were good. I think that they made each other better people. I was more interested in this book, enjoyed it a lot more. This was a cute little Western novel and I think I'll go back to reading other books in the series.
Kimberly Walter
Riding Home was hot, sexy and sweet. Jeannette Trenton came to Last Chance Ranch to atone for the huge mistake she made but she is unwelcome as a rattlesnake.
She isn't there to lust after the new cowhand but she can't resist him either.
Zach Powell knows Jeannette type, heck he used to be that. He needs to help shake it up and loose. And allow herself to make some mistakes.
Zach gets Jeannette to let loose in his trailer and boy does she ever. They become close and Zach does want to let her go
Catherine Wright
Very quick enjoyable read. I love books that don't have much angst to them and this is those. Zach and Jeannette were perfect for one another. I look forward to reading more from this series. I so love this author.

I was given a copy by the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

Sweet story of Zack (previously an Attorney/now Cowboy) finds his mate (an attorney)! Very sweet and sexy and fun!!
Joy Strother
Riding Home is an awesome book.Zach is a sexy lawyer turned cowboy.This book is well written and deliciously sexy.I recommend this book highly.
Vicki Lewis Thompson has penned another entertaining story with familiar characters in a fabulous setting!
Definitely Harlequin. I enjoyed the ending but the epilogue was not a true epilogue...
