“A Rancher’s Surrender” by Michelle Beattie is a sweet historical romance. This is Jillian Matthews and Wade Parker’s story.
Jillian has always wanted to be a veterinarian but women were not allowed entrance into vet school. Jillian’s dad was a sought after vet and trained other vets. She trained under her dad. She took a vet job in the Montana territory in hopes that they would be more accepting of a woman vet. Jillian discovered that even in the west Montana territory they still didn’t accept the idea of a woman vet. I admired Jillian’s determination to stand up for what she wants.
Wade is a widower raising his daughter while trying to make his ranch successful. He wasn’t too happy to discover that the vet he hired was a woman. Plus, the sight of Jillian woke up parts of him that thought had died. Will Wade and the community give Jillian a chance to prove herself as a vet? Will Jillian and Wade take a chance on love?
This is a sweet romance of two people that are perfect for each other. I enjoyed Wade and Jillian’s story.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
