Meet the women from Wild Rose Ranch—and the men who want them—in New York Times Bestselling Author Jennifer Ryan’s breathtaking series of romance and scandal . . .
Noah Cordero is a modern-day cowboy who loves three things: ranching, his younger sister, and his step-father. John Cordero groomed Noah to take over the Montana spread where he learned to ride and work the land. But when John unexpectedly dies, he leaves half the ranch to a woman Noah doesn’t even know.
Roxy shares Noah’s last name, but not his blood. Estranged from her father, haunted by regrets, and eager to escape her notorious mother’s past, she is forced to fulfill her father’s last wishes. Inheriting means sharing a home with infuriating, challenging, and oh-so-tempting Noah. But John didn’t just make her owner of his ranch and guardian to her sister, his hidden sideline is her worst nightmare—she’s the new owner of the notorious Nevada brothel called Wild Rose Ranch where she grew up.
As their strictly business relationship starts to turn to true love, Roxy begins to wonder, what will happen when Noah discovers her dirty little secret?
Dirty Little Secret by Jennifer Ryan was a good story. It wasn’t just another typical hot romance. There were many themes hidden in this plot that made the story so much more. Abuse, neglect, addiction, family, forgiveness, and new beginnings were several of those themes.
I enjoyed reading Roxy’s tale. Her life was difficult in many ways. She made herself into the woman she is all on her own. With little to no help from either parent, Roxy made it to the top. But her mother’s life still haunts and hurts Roxy. Everything takes a look at Roxy and think she is exactly her mother. But she isn’t. Roxy is a strong and independent woman.
As much as this was a contemporary romance novel, it was also a women’s fiction book. It shows there was much more than a woman’s looks. Brains, bravery, and love. It was hard not to cry for Roxy and cheer for her. She was amazing A person who not only stands up for herself but for others. That’s a character I like.
