I received this book from NetGalley and Harlequin in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.


A war hero returns to a secret baby surprise in this Slades of Sunset Ranch novel by USA TODAY bestselling author Charlene Sands.

Back from his tour of duty, wealthy Nevada rancher Justin Slade gets the shock of his life. The woman who shared his bed eighteen months ago is in his hometown with a son in tow who looks just like Justin!

Katherine Grady is hiding a dark past, but when she realizes Justin seduced her under false pretenses, she’s livid;even if she still finds him as irresistible as ever. Will their secrets keep them apart, or will her hero fight for what’s his?



This book was a little different for me. I’m used to all kinds of things and Katherine was really surprise with this twist in her life. But I thought it was brilliant, she got a second chance with her baby father. Justin lied, but we can clearly understand that it wasn’t a bad move and he wasn’t trying o harm anyone. Just a couple of guys pranks and now is the perfect moment for him to find a family of his own.

Justin and Katherine are actually two nice people and they so cute together. I think they deserved a happy ending especially after everything life made them suffer. Katherine was a nice girl and always chose safety but with her past is clear that she’s not entirely wrong and I liked the changes and different paths she chose after the baby was born.

Justin on the other end, had a very normal life, but chose the military and it took some of his happiness, clearly was a good choice for him, because now he’s thinking about saving some other heroes.

I liked their finding each other again and it was nice following their new romance.

Sunset Seduction (The Slades of Sunset Ranch)

The night she’ll never forget…
Is a night he can’t remember…
Audrey Thomas can’t forget the night of passion she shared with Lucas Slade, the man she’s loved for years. But it seems the sexy, super-rich rancher has no clue who warmed his bed!
The mystery seductress at his Lake Tahoe retreat was Audrey? His best friend’s off-limits kid sister? Now she’s back at Sunset Ranch…and having his baby! Honor bound to do the right thing, Lucas never reckons she’ll say I won’t to his proposal—or that she’ll settle for nothing less than all this cowboy has to give.

I love a good cowboy book and Luke was perfect with good looks and a very protective side. He loved Audrey like a little sister but had no idea she had a very different feeling for him and they shared a super hot night together, the problem he didn’t remember the woman in question and Audrey was completely hurt about it.
So after a few awkward moments she accepted to work in the ranch and let it go, but she was still in love with him and after some help from a friend, operation seduction started. Luke had no idea Audrey was the perfect woman he shared a very hot night. But once Luke discovered we can clearly see he’s afraid and decided to run from his mistake, so no happy ending for those two, but Audrey was pregnant and things changed quite a lot after that.

I really loved Audrey, she has strength and a lot of hard work, but she’s not a little princess waiting for her prince. She works and follow her life, because Luke is clearly oblivious to her love. I loved these two finding a half way. Luke needed someone strong and Audrey was perfect for him.
