This is a cowboy romance series. This is book 3 in the Millers of Morgan Valley series. This book follows the romance between Ben (a cow rancher/cowboy) and Silver (a super star actress). They both have over controlling Dads, and they are both dealing with their past. This book was so great. There was steamy sexy scenes, there was drama, and there was over coming. I loved it so much. I was kindly provided an e-copy of this book by the publisher or author via NetGalley in exchange for an honest r ...more

This is book 3 in The Millers of Morgan Valley series that follows the romance between Ben Miller, a rancher, and Silver Meadows, a famous movie star. The young actress is wanting to get a part in a new Western and felt like she could gain experience by hiring a trail guide to help her learn. While I struggled with Silver being so immature and annoying, she ended up growing up and losing the Hollyweird attitude. She was a spoiled young woman that expected everyone to do everything for her. Ben h ...more

This book is more like a 2.5, but it does round up to a 3.

The Rebellious Rancher is the 3rd book in the Millers of Morgan Valley series by Kate Pearce. It is Rancher Ben Miller and actress Silver Meadow’s story.


My thoughts:

This book was alright. It was a cute easy read. The writing was good. I liked how realistic Silver was….I thought the author made her a good balance of spoiled celebrity and capable person. I liked the trail ride….it was a beautiful setting, and the authors depiction was g

I received this book as a ARC copy from NetGalley. This is another fabulous installment of the Miller series. Starring Ben Miller and Silver Meadows. I have to say I didn't like Silver at ALL in the beginning. She was a spoiled star that expected everyone to do everything for her. Ben was may more patient than anyone could ever be with a spoiled celebrity. The chemistry with the two is off the charts and while they both have demons to slay somewhere along the line, they find a balance to make it ...more

This was the best Kate Pearce book I've read to date. I've read both the Morgan and the Miller series so far and this one kept me engaged from the very beginning. I couldn't put it down, but around 4 a.m. I had to finally make myself stop reading and come back to it. I still finished the book in less than 24 hours :-)

I just loved Silver and Ben. They were such a wonderful couple and although I usually find the whole cowboy/actress trope to be a little odd, Ben & Silver really did work well as a

The Rebellious Rancher is a beautiful love story about a rancher and movie star. Ben and Silver are complete opposites and yet they have so much in common. Their romance is unexpected and will take readers on one crazy ride.

Ben is a rancher who is struggling with certain decisions when we meet him. He always imagined running his father's ranch, but plans change when his dad leaves the ranch to his older brother. He knows he wants to live the life of a rancher but can he still do it with his feel

The Rebellious Rancher by Kate Pearce
The Millers of Morgan Valley #3

Ben Miller and Silver Meadows really shouldn’t have common ground. Ben is a man of the land who works hard on his father’s ranch while silver has been a star since childhood and has had a rather pampered life. The fact that the two are thrown together on a trail ride begins to create bond between them. The tricky bit is whether that bond will be able to strengthen enough to stand the test of time. They deserve a HEA if they can

Ben Miller doesn't know where his place is in the family. He's a little lost. When the Morgan family offers him a job as a guide for a mystery person. The mystery person being Silver Meadows a well known actress who needs to learn how to survive in the wild for a movie role. The longer out on the trail the closer they get even though they are so opposite of each other. I liked the first half of the book a lot. I enjoyed the trail ride part and how they got together.

I have read several books by Kate Pearce. I have found them all to be well written and entertaining. The Rebellious Rancher is as high-quality writing as the other ones that I have read by this author. Both the heroine and the hero are both likable characters and I feel like I really got to know them both. Since they are on a trail ride for a week, with no one else there they really get to know each other. Ben is a really good guy, and Silver is a really strong female character.

Pearce has a great series with the Morgan and Miller family ranches. Ben Miller is trying to find his place in the family when his father gives the ranch to his brother. Going on a trail ride with Silver Meadow is what he needs. Silver Meadow is a child turned adult star trying to navigate her career without the shadow of her father. This couple find that what they need most is each other. Great outdoor adventure with dangers along the way. "A copy of this book was provided by Kensington Books v ...more

I enjoyed the trail ride part of this story. I liked how Silver started to blossom into a more self sufficient person. I felt like Ben and Silver had chemistry during this part of the book.

After Silver went back to LA, I didn't feel like they had much of a connection at all. I was so glad when she started to get a backbone, until she didnt. I also didn't think we were ever going to get to find out about Ben's past. Ben seemed really unhappy and angry throughout the majority of the book. It was a

I think this may be my favorite story so far. SO enjoyed Ben and Silver! I was annoyed at Silver's reaction at the end - understood it but not happy about it - and loved Ben's strong, silent, supportive nature throughout the story. Really liked this book.

Kate Pearce is one of those authors whose stories I covet. That may not be the right word. Close but not quite. It’s the one stuck in my head so I can’t really think of any other words right now. You know how that is, right? Anyway, you know when you find a television show that you love and you end up putting off watching the last few episodes because you just don’t want it to end? Well, I’ve had an eArc of this book for months. Months! While I wanted to read it closer to the publication day, an ...more

Hollywood invades ranch country. Opposites attract on a ten-day trail ride.

Silver Meadow is a famous actress who has very much lived the Hollywood life. Her acting career began when she was just a baby and that has been her life throughout her childhood and now as an adult. She is now twenty-five and really wants the leading role in an independently produced Western film. She feels she needs to experience what Western life would be like so she goes on a ten-day trail ride out of the Morgan Ranch

‘The Rebellious Rancher‘ is the third title in ‘The Millers of Morgan Valley‘ series, and it kept me flipping pages from start to finish.

Ben, as the second son, didn’t get the ranch as he’d hoped. No, that went to his older brother. So, now Ben is trying to find his own place on a ranch that isn’t his to run – and most likely, he’ll end up heading out on his own one day. But for now, he’s heading up a trail ride trip for one spoiled, entitled Hollywood actress who is

The cowboy and the actress hit the trail together!

Take one slightly frustrated rancher at loose ends in his life, add in a sheltered yet feisty young actress researching her next role, send them out on the trail just minutes after meeting with nothing more than what their pack animals can carry, add in an unexpected storm and life-threatening events and you'll end up with this exhilarating romance that has all the sass and steam a romance reader could ever hope for!

Kate Pearce has become one of my favorite authors and Morganville one of my favorite imaginary small towns. As in the previous books, the author weaves deftly developed characters, detailed descriptions of not only the visual scenes but also the ins and outs of how a working ranch works (along with the inside scoop of how the professions of the other characters worked) and steady paced story lines into a wonderful tapestry of a tale. And always ends the book with at least one recipe.

Thank you to the author and TLC Book Tours for the review copy!

The Rebellious Rancher is book three in the Millers of Morgan Valley series. I haven't read the other two, but they read like standalones. There's some crossover and characters that are present from previous books, so I missed their significance. But again, that didn't hinder my ability to read this one.

To start, I feel like I should mention that western/cowboy romance isn't my typical genre. I haven't read many of them. I'm open to

I’ve said it before & I’ll say it again, I haven’t read a book by author Kate Pearce that I haven’t loved & this one is no different. Ben & Silver’s story was just what I was looking for. It is such a great fit in this series & had me not wanting to put it down. I loved the drama surrounding this book, it wasn’t the type were someone had been threatened or abused but the drama of life & career choices & status. Ben & Silver were so different they shouldn’t click but they did, the chemistry betwe ...more

The Miller family has 7 kids, and boy number 2 is Ben.
