WELCOME BACK TO MESA FALLS!
WHERE DYNASTIES AND SECRETS ARE SOMETIMES EXPOSED

The Rancher is the fifth book in author Joanne Rock’s most recent Harlequin Desire series, Mesa Falls. In the book, a reclusive ranching tycoon comes up against a determined social media star who is intent on discovering his long-buried secrets…if their growing desire doesn’t consume them both first, that is.
The Rancher is the fifth book in author Joanne Rock’s Mesa Falls series. In the book, social media darling Chiara Campagna visits Mesa Falls Ranch during a charity fundraiser, with the sole purpose of finding out the secrets its various owners are hiding. Her agenda gets a tad bit complicated after she meets one of the owners, ranching tycoon Miles Rivera, and finds herself desperate to know what it feels like to be in his arms.
Something had shifted between them this evening, taking them from cautiously circling enemies to charged magnets that couldn’t stay apart.
I really loved this read, which isn’t surprising since the author has been auto-buy for me for near two decades. The characters in this one, Miles and Chiara, were so fascinating to read. This is likely due to the fact that one of them lives their life in the spotlight and the other does whatever he can to avoid it. But it’s also due to the way Rock presents them in the story.
She wanted to know real passion. What it was like to be carried away on that wave of hot, twitchy, need-it-now hunger.
There is a certain loneliness to Miles and Chiara, and that loneliness is what draws them toward each other even when other circumstances dictate the need for caution. The chemistry is instant, yet believable because of who they are and how they live their lives. It is almost inevitable that these two would meet, and that they would be drawn to one another. Each scene with them was engaging and magnetic, and perfectly crafted to build the push and pull of their budding romance.
Absolutely loved it!
