Review: The Rancher Takes A Bride (The Burnett Brides #1)

The Rancher Takes A Bride (The Burnett Brides #1) by Sylvia McDaniel

Publisher: Virtual Bookseller, 2012
320 pages, kindle edition
Source: Free through Amazon

Synopsis (from Goodreads):
Eugenia Burnett wants grandchildren. This cunning widow is determined to find wives for her brood of handsome sons.

Rose Severin speaks to the dead or at least she pretends to until she can earn enough money to make her way to New York and become a famous actress like her mother. Travis Burnett is resolved to rid the frontier town of imposters like Rose. But Eugenia thinks fiery Rose is just the woman for her obstinate son. She schemes to keep Rose at the family ranch where Travis soon realizes that the supposed spiritualist is more than just a pretty swindler.

My Review:
Rose "Desiree'" Severin is a con artist who holds seances, claiming to talk to the dead. When Eugenia Burnett asks Rose to contact her missing son Tanner, who she hasn't heard from in 10 years, her oldest son Travis is furious. He threatens to close down Rose's business and have her thrown in jail if she doesn't stay away from his mother. Travis has no idea his mother has matchmaking in mind.

Eugenia wants her sons to settle down and give her grandchildren. When she sees Rose she knows she is the perfect woman to turn Travis' life upside down. When the sparks fly between them it only confirms her suspicions and she'll go to any lengths to get them together, even tell a little white lie.

Rose falls helplessly in love with Travis but can Travis see how wrong he was about Rose and come to realize how much Rose means to him?

This is book one in the Burnett Brides series and it can be read as a stand-alone book but, honestly, why would you want to? The story of Travis just wet my appetite for the other Burnett brothers. This was a fantastic, well written story. I definitely recommend it. Now I'm off to buy the other two books!

My Rating:
