More About the Author
Her books were initially written strictly to quiet the voices in her head that kept telling her all these stories. She embarked on this journey with no expectations of becoming a commercial success, but wanted to share them with others who might enjoy reading them. Her stories are for adults and contain both explicit language and graphic content. Each of them is outside the industry standards for the genre in terms of length. She feels that they are told the way the stories needed to be told and understands that some readers do not want to invest that much time in a single work. However, she is happy to make them available to all of those who prefer novels that can't be read in a matter of hours, as she does. It takes a diverse group of readers to keep the industry strong and she applauds all those who buy and borrow any book of any genre, short or long. Certainly not all books are for all people. If her books fit the bill for you, she hopes that you enjoy them.
Raeann's love affair with books began long ago when her father became justifiably irritated after about her twentieth proclamation that she was bored and had nothing to do. In response, he shoved a book in her hand and told her to read it. Jack London's Call of the Wild was her first 'grown-up' book and she was hooked.
Although a native Texan, Raeann is convinced she was really supposed to have been born in Montana, or that she at least lived there in a previous life. She currently lives in Fort Worth, Texas with her husband and a crazy dog that loves the mailman but wants to eat the UPS guy (the dog, not the husband). Between her part-time job, managing life in general as a transplant survivor, and trying to keep the UPS guy in one piece, she still finds time to write and feed that inner being that keeps whispering new stories in her ear that insist on being told.

As a character, he was very complex, which is something that I love in a romance hero. I like reading about a man that gets my insides just as twisted as the heroines. This was something I appreciated about Clay. Just like Hailey I wanted to kiss him and strangle him at the same time. While he was 'surly' it was plain to see that there was more to him than that and I thoroughly enjoyed digging deeper and deeper into his past. It made him a more sympathetic character. Without those background details, he would have come across as an abrasive jerk. I also loved that he was completely clueless when it came to women. Most romance novels portray the ultimate Romeo, who snaps an has the girls' panties dropping. While Clay was definitely swoon-worthy, his mouth often met his foot in his bungling attempts at conversation and romance. The loveable cast of secondary characters were there to guide him along the way. Speaking of which, I really appreciated the secondary characters .When the hero and heroine were getting on my nerves, they were there for me to fall back on as likeable and fun. I especially like Laine and wonder if the author plans a spinoff story about him and sexy cook Isobell...it could be interesting Raeann! *hint, hint*
Hailey as a heroine was not so complex, but then there wasn't much room for her to be with Clay and all his drama.Read more ›
The hero is one of these guys who just can't trust women, no matter what. He owns a big ranch in Montana where his best bud, Laine, is his right-hand man and the grizzled old timer that helped raise him is also in residence. These two spend page after page after page convincing the hero that if he lets the heroine get away he'll regret it for the rest of his life. There's also a jealous cowgirl named Lynne who tries to make things hard for the heroine. Between Laine (a guy) and Lynne (a girl) I kept having to stop and figure out if it was the best bud or the evil girl talking. In the last twenty pages, Hero confesses his love for Heroine, they buy rings, Evil Lynne is fired and marched off the ranch, pals are happy, and they all live happily ever after. If I had been reading a paperback, I would have thrown it across the room.
The author could easily have slashed a hundred pages (mostly dialogue about the hero's feelings), and we would have a decent start on a good cowboy romance.

I enjoyed Clay but hated Hailey....too controlling.
Too much fluff to just get to the point.
Laine was a good character.
Great even the second time. I liked how even with a difficult upbringing,everything worked out for both sides. Montana life is not for everyone.Published 12 months ago by nurse_sandi
