The Rancher Stakes His Claim 

When she inherits half a dude ranch after losing her best friend, Landry Malone is determined to see Eden's legacy flourish. That is if her friend's broad-shouldered cowboy brother will give her the chance. Chase Donovan isn't happy that his sister left their family business to an outsider—and he's determined to test Landry's mettle, hoping she'll give up her claim. Soon Chase is impressed by Landry's ability to rise to every challenge he puts in her way—and worried that his attraction to the perky spitfire seems to know no end. Finally working together to ensure the ranch's future, will their business partnership be the foundation for something more?

Enjoyed reading about the romance and the suspense between the two. They both had a reason to have doubt.

Okay, book lovers, if you are starting your "great books to read this summer" list, you're going to want to add Winning over the Cowboy by Shannon Taylor Vannatter. The book is great and a speedy read. Althoughhhh, you may want to take your time and savor the courtship of the two main characters, Chase and Landry. He's a pessimist who believes Landry is trying to steal his portion of his family's legacy. She is a reluctant optimist (jilted at the altar a year earlier) who now wants nothing more than to move forward in her life and to honor her best friend's (Chase's sister) final wishes. Landry escapes the sympathy and embarrassment of her hometown after Kyle, her former fiancee, leaves her standing at the altar. When her best friend dies on her honeymoon, Landry discovers she is named as part owner to her friend's ranch. Still shaken from her friend's death and her fiancee's rejection, Landry leaves her hometown only to encounter Chase, her best friend's brother, and the other part owner of the ranch. Under the provisions of the will, both Chase and Landry must run the business for a year before the agreement can be breached. Chase doesn't want her involved in the business, much less in his heart, and sets out to prove she has no place on the family-owned ranch He's taken aback, however, when he realizes how business savvy Landry is--not to mention how beautiful she is. Not only can she hold her own with Chase, she has a wealth of unique ideas that will grow the ranch. In the process, he finds it harder and harder to remain distanced from Landry's charm and intelligence. Landry tires of Chase's constant tests and demands but finds herself falling for this strong-willed, sultry cowboy. Trust slowly envelops her heart for the first time since Kyle left her. But when she overhears a conversation between Chase and a farmhand, she is devastated. She decides to leave the ranch, refuse her inheritance, and bury her feelings for Chase by doing the unthinkable. This book has the quick pacing I've come to expect from Vanatter. Well-crafted twists are brilliant and her characters are solid and endearing, realistic and memorable. They will stay with you long after you read the final pages. As an added plus, Vannatter weaves in a delightful secondary character--Resa, a respected, enigmatic, well-known Texas furniture designer. Hints of Resa's intriguing background added to the tension and the overall enjoyment of the story. I have a feeling Resa will be featured in the upcoming book in this series. I am eager to find out more about this mysterious woman.

Bound and determined, Chase tries his best to run his newest partner, Landry Malone, far and away from his family’s dude ranch. This is his family’s legacy and there is no room for gold diggers. Landry, given the chance of a lifetime, thanks to the last wishes of her best friend, does what she has to do to prove that she is worthy of her friend’s precious gift. Thrown into this together, Landry and Chase must work through their personal feelings to see that the ranch doesn’t fail. And somewhere along the way feelings for one another grow. But is it real for either or all just a sham? I found WINNING OVER THE COWBOY to be such an enjoyable and delightful read. The plot of the story was wonderful and it called to me whenever I wasn’t reading. I have said this before and I will say it again, that alone makes it a wonderful book. You get so caught up in the story and the characters; you just want to run back to them at any given chance. What I loved most about the characters, is both Landry and Chase’s love for their family, friends, and of course the Lord. It is absolutely refreshing to find a story nowadays that openly talks about God. And of course if you throw a cowboy in there, what is not to love? 4 Stars!
