Synopsis (Goodreads):
This cowboy has given up on love, but the new nanny might just make him change his mind. The first in a brand-new series from New York Times bestselling author Vivian Arend.

Caleb Stone is wearing too many hats and it’s making him crankier than usual. He’s a cowboy, a father, and the head of his large family—and has been since tragedy claimed his parents over ten years ago. The ranch is struggling, but it's the title of single dad that’s got him tangled up in knots. He needs a full-time, live-in nanny at the Silver Stone homestead in Heart Falls, Alberta, to help with his two little girls, but the woman about to arrive on his doorstep? Tantalizing, tempting, and trouble with capital T’s.

Tamara Coleman doesn’t regret the choices that led to losing her job, but she definitely needs a fresh start. When a friend recommends her for a nanny position in a new town, she swears this time it’ll be different. No more acting on impulse—except sexy, gruff Caleb is exactly the kind of man who pushes all her buttons. And what’s more, it’s so much fun to push his in return. Sparks fly between Tamara and her gorgeous boss, but she can’t risk her position, and he doesn’t dare risk his heart.

With two people fighting their true natures, something’s going to give. Luckily, there’s more than one way to capture a rancher’s heart.
Thoughts on A Rancher's Heart: A NEW SERIES! I adore the Coleman's and I was sad to say goodbye to them in Jesse's book, BUT IT TURNS OUT I DIDN'T REALLY HAVE TO SAY GOODBYE. Because those Coleman's are still around. Still loving one another. Still being gloriously family-centric. And with Tamara mixing with the Stone family, I expect plenty of Coleman sightings in the future.

Okay, enough Coleman squealing. Unless I'm talking about Tamara. I can squeal about her. And maybe her sisters. Because sisters.

Anyway. Tamara and Caleb. The surly head of the Stone family and the sometimes impetuous woman who accepts the consequences of her actions and resolves to hold her head high no matter what. Sliding into the Stone family takes some finesse on her part because Caleb comes with two adorable daughters who are hesitant to let someone new into their lives. Even when she's just the nanny. But Tamara doesn't back away from challenges and she works her way into the girls' affections just as surely as she works her way into Caleb.

Except Caleb took longer to admit it.

He had his reasons, of course, but he did take his sweet time coming to the realization that Tamara was the woman for him.

I loved our glimpses of the Coleman brood and getting to know the Stone brothers a little better. They're a rough and tumble bunch and I'm excited to see how their stories play out.
