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

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

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

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

the characters and story are very simple. the main characters love their families, love their work, love to eat big meals and laugh together. I would imagine there's a lot more grit and a lot less feel-good moments in a rancher's actual daily life, but that's really not what this book is trying to capture. Cheyenne (rancher) meets Quinn (son of a rancher, researcher tracking wolves) and they develop feelings for one another. everyone supports them, except for one villain (who is not at all hard ...more

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.

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.

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. 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.

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.

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

So it's the kind of book that make me undecided even after I finish it.

Did I enjoyed it? Yes. But was it extraordinary ? No. But do I want to read the others one ? I don't know.

The success of this book was the family part and the relashionship between the three brothers and their father. In spite of their mother's mysterious disappearance when they were young and even if years later they still don't know what happened the members of the family stayed close and keeped a sense of humour.

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.

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.

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

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.

I was very pleased with the sweet development of the romance in this story, it was swoony and steamy. There is some not very graphic sex near the end.

Quinn Conway is wonderful hero material, and I loved his whole family and the ranch house staff too.

Cheyenne was a great heroine, and she and Quinn were wonderful together and both worthy of each other.

There is some good suspense dealing with incidents on Cheyenne's ranch, but not much mystery, as even I guessed correctly who the culprit was, but

*I'm having a hard time rating this book, so I'm going to give it 2 1/2 stars. *

I felt the writing was repetitive, just cranking out nothing until a word quota was met. I mean if I hear how the family laughed, roared, or howled at someone's joke (which, in truth, might have been a fun jibe but not hilarious) I'm going to throw the book across the room. I wanted to put it down and not finish multiple times, but as I rolled my eyes through some repetitive dialog, I kept pressing on. I was practica

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
