Ryelee's Cowboy - Teaser Tuesday

16479498
Ryelee's Cowboy has such interesting and believable characters! Widower Clint Mahoney lost his ranch to foreclosure and now he runs a horse ranch for someone else. His daughter is disabled. The girl's nanny (Ryelee) is the daughter of the town n'er do well and has lived a life of poverty and neglect. She's determined to do her best by the rancher and his daughter for as long as he'll let her stay. But she's sure that when Clint finds out she's pregnant, he'll make her leave. All of the characters seem like real human beings with real problems to overcome. 

Although this is the second book in the Dawson Ranch Series, it also stands alone.

Teaser from 11% on my Kindle. Clint (the hero) is speaking:
"Ryelee only has a handful of threadbare clothes, one pair of shoes with holes in them, and she doesn't even have a coat. She says she doesn't want to spend any of the money she's made because she'll need it when I throw her away."

Genre: Western Romance
Length: 192 Pages
Amazon Link: Ryelee's Cowboy
Other Books by Kathleen Ball: Amazon Author's Page

Synopsis:
      Clint Maloney needs help with his daughter but he never bargained on Ryelee Snyder. The tall, gangly, girl is a menace. Clint spends too much of his time rescuing her from her latest mishap. Upon finding out about her pregnancy, Clint's feelings begin to change. He no longer views her as a nuisance but as a passionate woman with a generous heart.
      Secrets, misunderstandings, and cattle rustling put an increasing strain on their relationship, until they finally turn from each other. Just as they seem to find their way back, Ryelee's part in the cattle rustling is unveiled. Ryelee fights unyieldingly to win the love of a lifetime.

Ohhh, sounds a little intense. Hope you're enjoying it! :)

Congratulations on the release of your first book.

Sandra Nachlinger said...

I've been reading quite a few Western romances recently and enjoying them. RYELEE'S COWBOY is one of my favorites.

Cleo Bannister said...

This sounds really quite good and from a genre I wouldn't normally be drawn to. Similar issues to my TT this week (thanks for visiting me) http://cleopatralovesbooks.wordpress.com/2014/07/08/teaser-tuesday-july-8/

Sandra Nachlinger said...

I really came to care for the characters in this book, and I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the series.

Lexxie Lin said...

Ryelee's Cowboy sounds intense and emotional, Sandra. I hadn't heard of it before, but now I'm adding it to my TBR. Thanks for stopping by earlier.

Doesn't look my type of book :-) Thanks for coming by my one. I appreciate it

Sandra Nachlinger said...

The characters are definitely not stereotypical. I think that's one reason I enjoyed the story.

Sandra Nachlinger said...

I think you'll enjoy this series.

Sandra Nachlinger said...

Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment. Not every book is appealing to every reader!

Heather said...

Good teaser, these sound like two strong characters. Thanks for visiting mine -- I hadn't thought of Mz. B's teaser and mine tying together, but they sort of do, don't they? *grin*

leenight said...

I tend to stay away from westerns but that line had me going 'oh snaaap, sucks to be her' lol

Louisa Paarsmarkt said...

That sounds a bit sad, but great teaser! Thanks for stopping by! Happy reading!

Lexxie Lin said...

I've just added the whole series now :)

"She says she doesn't want to spend any of the money she's made because she'll need it when I throw her away."

How awful! Although, I'd have to look at both sides of the coin before I can make my assumptions; thanks for stopping by :)

Sandra Nachlinger said...

Ryelee has had a rough life, but she has a kind heart. She's a likable character.

Sandra Nachlinger said...

Based on her life experience, Ryelee doesn't have very high expectations. Her story is a good one.

Missie said...

I don't really read any books like this, but the teaser sounds good!

Thanks for the follow and for leaving a comment.

Laura Thomas said...

Aaw. I know he isn't going to throw her away, or is he? I'm a fan of character driven stroies and these two sound captivating. Already feel a connection to Ryelee from your teaser. Clint and Ryelee. The names go well together.

Catherine @ Book Club Librarian said...

Our reading is in harmony with each of us reading about destitute Westerners.
