Cole Parrish doesn't want to settle down. Always moving on, that's
his way. The problem is that Rachel Hewitt, the owner of Bar H Ranch,
keeps pulling at his heart and his desire. Rachel is set to inherit and
run the ranch on her own but she needs help and a good ranch hand is
hard to find, especially one so good for the heart and eyes as Cole!
Will the arrival of an unexpected baby throw a kink in all their plans?
Can Rachel keep the ranch together when those around her have other
plans? When the plans of family and friends from the past conflict with
her own plans, can Rachel save her father's legacy and create her own?
Doorstep Baby shines in the way Patricia Thayer
incorporates loss and sadness into the romance the scene. I would have
liked to see a bit more development of the character Rachel to match
the wonderful hero's character. Cole is kind and caring without having
to be asked. Although he wrestles with wanderlust and insecurity, he
never turns that side against women. Never mean-spirited but a gentle
loving soul at heart and in actions, Cole is special. It is refreshing
to read about a hero whose behavior towards the heroine is both
respectful and loving. No wonder Rachel is drawn to him! The secondary
character Cy Parks adds a reading delight. As the ranch foreman, Cy is
wise but unable to help physically on the ranch due to a recent heart
attack. Nevertheless, his insight and keen eye catch details missed by
the hero and heroine. The Rancher's
Doorstep Baby is a perfect read for
those moments in real life when you feel like tearing your hair out
because nothing runs smoothly. The characters are kind despite their
difficulties and the tone gentle and soothing. A perfect escape read!
