I'm still playing catch up from being away on vacation for two weeks, so this review is going to be a bit on the short side. That said, this author just keeps getting better and better. This was my favorite book of hers to date. It was well written and well paced. It was told in a dual POV format. The plot was engaging (even if it is very obvious who the "baddie" is right from the beginning). It was was super low angst. There wasn't any OW or OM drama. I loved the secondary characters (the siste

This is my first read by this author and definitely won’t be my last. As a matter of fact I think I’ll dig into another of hers. Good storyline with good MCs along with a nice cast of secondary characters. I’m looking forward to Paris and Holland getting their HEAs. I’m also hoping that Marcus gets a story as well.

A fun and quick read with a dose of angst & thriller.

Danielle Norman delivered yet another spectacular tale with strong ladies taking the center stage, although it is slightly different from the IRON ORCHIDS universe, I'm falling in love with the ranch and all of its animals!

Adore this one and so excited for the next!

I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of this book.

London and Braden make for one tumultuous couple. Coming from a Florida ranching family myself, I particularly enjoyed seeing it depicted accurately in a book. I’m looking forward to Holland and Paris’ stories quite impatiently.

What a cool book. I loved this story from beginning to end. London and her sisters Paris and Holland have just lost their father. Their mother took off years before. Now they have to run his ranch. And they have faith in each other. They each have their responsibilities and they know they can do it. Everyone else isn't so sure.

Stetson starts this new series off, introducing us to a cast of characters that promise to have entertaining books. London and her sisters have taken over the ranch after their father dies, all three busting their butts to make sure that what they have stays theirs and in working order. For London, as the oldest she feels she has more on her shoulders. When she ends up having a one night stand with an old crush, she wakes up the next day more determined to not let any

Stetson is caught between two worlds. It has all the heartache of a country song, but twice the drama of any prime-time soap. London is learning how to be a woman, caught in a man's world. Her spirit is as wild as the land she works, but behind the fierce determination lies an abundance of self - doubt. Braden is the one man who can get inside her head and talk her down from the ledge, but when it comes to her heart it will take more than a gentle tone and understanding to tame the fire inside. ...more

Got to love a book with strong, feisty women and hot men. Stetson definitely delivers on that! Filled with lots of sass, sweet moments, and sexy time. Danielle Norman has quickly become my go-to for romantic comedies!

Cowgirl up

As the first book in a new series from Danielle Norman, I was so excited. I have loved her previous books, and I am so glad shes got a new series. "Stetson" introduces the Kelly sisters who have an amazing relationship with each other. After the death of their father they are forced to take over the ranch. Working the ranch they love means being strong women in a mans world (which lets admit is a battle we are all fighting). Trying to balance work on the ranch and relationships both wi

Ms. Norman has outdone herself with Stetson!! Stetson is riveting and captivating. It had me on the edge of my seat the entire time and I couldnt put it down.

I adore the names she chose for her characters. London, Holland and Paris. They are so different and so unique. The author definitely knows how to keep herself a step above all the other authors on her genres.

Stetson follows London, the oldest, on her embankment into owning and running her family ranch. Then she runs into Braden. Braden ha

London Kelly and her sisters had been learning how to run their ranch since they were kids. Now that their father is gone too soon, it’s up to them to keep things running as he left them. Too bad someone seems to be trying to sabotage everything they’ve worked so hard to achieve. With the help of the sexy town sheriff and their friends, these sisters aren’t willing to go down without the fight of their lives!

Stetson was a truly fabulous romance with an amazing cast of characters and a fabulous p

Stetson is the first book in a new series by Danielle Norman. After reading her Iron Orchids series, I knew that the story was one I didn’t want to pass up and I am so glad I signed up to help with promotion through L. Woods PR. As a blogger, I come across new authors and awesome stories all the time, and that’s actually how I found Danielle Norman to start. I’ve greatly enjoyed the last three books that I read by her and of those books that I have read by Danielle, I would tell you her romances

A rancher/farm story set in Florida? Color me intrigued.

I've read a few books in Danielle Norman's Wild Orchid series, so when I saw she had a new series coming out, I was interested for sure.

London Kelly's father has passed, leaving her and her two sisters, Paris and Holland, in charge of their family ranch. The night of her father's funeral, London ends up at a bar and goes home with Braden "fucking" McManus (that's what she calls him). She's drunk, but they share a fun evening together, and w

I love this new series about the three Kelly women. First and oldest sister is London....yes, that's right all the sisters have been named after beautiful cities everyone longs to visit. After the death of their father, the girls must take over the family business....a cattle ranch and horse stables. The hot sexy guy in the story is Braden McManus, one of the local cops. It just so happens that London and Braden both have had a crush on one another since high school....but of course neither of t ...more

London is downright fiesty and lacks a filter. She and her two younger sisters take over the family ranch for their father after he passes away. Her high school crush is back in town with a badge and a big heart. Everything starts going downhill with things that happen that threaten the running of the ranch.

I really enjoyed the storyline and the style in which it was written. All the charters and the correct placing and were enjoyable to learn about.

Danielle Norman has this knack for writing captivating exciting stories.
Stetson was no different.
From the very beginning I was enthralled I loved every single second of it. I absolutely adored London, Holland and Paris.
This was exciting and kept me on the edge of my seat. I loved the ending and cannot wait to see what is instore for the other Kelly women.
Brilliant read definitely recommend reading this.

Wow!! What a great start to this new series!!! I LOVED London and Braden!!!! London is a strong, independent woman going through some hard times after the death of her father. Braden just oozes masculinity and confidence with out being cocky and ... he just sounds so "lickable". Definitely the kind of man London needs on her side when trouble starts! Someone is out to undermine her, her ranch is in danger and Braden is just the man she needs.... even if she doesn't realize it at first!! I highly ...more

I normally do not read cowboy books but this an the exception. I loved Ms. Norman's other series Iron Orchids. She has a unique way of writing and I knew that I would love this book. This series, Iron Horse, is a great start. I like how she writes strong female leads, their struggles, their heartaches, their romances and their triumphs. There are two distinct POV’s, London and Braden. It was nice having the different points of view, woman to man, man to woman. We have the three Kelly sisters, Lo ...more

I’m digging this new series by Danielle Norman. This book is full of angst and drama but in a way that has the readers hooked from the first chapter. London and her sisters are charged with running the ranch for their late father, some people in the town feel like it’s a man’s job to run a ranch. Her and her sisters are out to prove the haters wrong. When a sexy Deputy makes his reappearance in town London is down for one night but Braden wants more. See he has had a crush on London since they ...more

Danielle Norman never disappoints in her quickies... always delivering swoony heroes, strong heroines, and one storyline that doesnt let go until the pages stop turning. Stetson is the first book in the new Iron Horse series and what a story it was, setting up this series to be looking pretty amazing. Sexy. Intense. Sweet. Suspenseful. Emotional. Taking me by surprise at moments... you can't miss this one.

He wants her. She's resistant. But he's a man who knows what he rants...her. And he

Stetson is the new instalment for Danielle Norman and probably the beginning of a new series. This book introduces you to the Kelly sisters, London, Paris and Holland, name after the places their mother wanted to visit. At the beginning of the book we learn that their father has died and now the ranch belong to them, London manages the books, Holland manages the horses and Paris is in charge of the house.

I was thinking that this would be a 3 -3.5 star romance book originally and reading/listening to so many meh ones (thank you, Chirp) I just wasn't sure it would be more then that. But between the writing, the story, and then the emotional trigger that was as if I was back in my younger self's head again... Well, that landed a solid 4.5 rounded to 5 via Goodreads standards.

The first things that made me like this book was the descriptions of the cowgirl wannabes/wanting to get lucky girls. I have

Sheriff Braden McManus, has been crushing on London since elementary school. Friends until they got into high school. Then they went there different ways.
Braden never told London how much he cared about her then.
Became a cop & moved. Now Braden is back in town as the Sherriff. He would love the opportunity to get London's attention.

London with her two other sisters are setting out to run their ranch after their father's passing. Braden has been crushing on London since high school. When he runs into her following her father's funeral he jumps at the chance with her. Too bad he screws up his first chance. Lucky for Br

Someone give Danielle Norman a crown because she has become the queen of unputdownable reads. I picked up Stetson planning to read for a bit and get some work done but next thing I knew, I blinked and hours had gone by while I was completely absorbed in London and Braden’s story. I fell in love with Danielle’s writing with her Iron Orchids series, but man, she has outdone herself with Stetson!
In true Danielle Norman fashion, London is no delicate little flower. Strong, independent, and incredib
