Publisher's Description

The Prodigal Is Coming Home

It’s been a long time since Colt Stafford shrugged off his cowboy legacy for shiny Manhattan loafers and a promising career on Wall Street. But when stock market manipulations leave him financially strapped, the oldest son of legendary rancher Sam Stafford decides to return to the sprawling Double S ranch in Gray’s Glen, Washington. He’s broke, but not broken, and it’s time to check in with his ailing father, and get his legs back under him by climbing into the saddle again.
 
He doesn’t expect to come home to a stranger pointing a loaded gun at his chest— a tough yet beautiful woman that Sam hired as the house manager. Colt senses there’s more to Angelina Morales than meets the eye and he’s determined to find out what she’s hiding...and why.
 
Colt’s return brings new challenges. Younger brother Nick has been Sam’s right-hand man at the ranch for years and isn’t thrilled at having Colt insert himself into Double S affairs. And the ranch’s contentious relationship with the citizens of Gray’s Glen asks all the Stafford men to examine their hearts about what it truly means to be a neighbor.  And as Wall Street recovers, will Colt succumb to the call of the financial district’s wealth and power—or finally the courage to stay in the saddle for good?

Editorial Reviews

"Back in the Saddle is an uplifting and heartwarming story about two wounded people using the power of faith to find the courage to change. A dramatic ranch setting, rich characterization, and a beautiful love story make this a book to savor. This is a strong beginning for what promises to be an exciting trilogy. Ruth Logan Herne is my new favorite author!"
—Karen White, New York Times best-selling author

—Lisa Wingate, national best-selling author of The Story Keeper and The Sea Keeper’s Daughters

"Not your average cowboy story, Back in the Saddle is the action-packed tale of an emotionally wounded prodigal (from Wall Street, no less!), his family’s dysfunctional ranching dynasty, and a unique heroine with a heartbreaking secret and an adorable son. Cowboys and kids, trouble and tragedy, Ruth Logan Herne delivers a tender romance wrapped in a wise, heart-touching blanket of redemption and grace. Highly recommended!"
—Linda Goodnight, best-selling, award-winning author of The Memory House and The Rain Sparrow

"From the first pages, readers will be drawn into the community of Gray’s Glen, the amazing cast of characters, and the lives of the hero and heroine. Angelina and Colt fill the pages of this book with a romance that will have readers wanting to know their past, their future, and the story that intertwines their lives. With Back in the Saddle, Ruth Logan Herne takes us on a journey that we will want to continue!"
—Brenda Minton, author of the Martin’s Crossing series

    I really enjoyed this book. This is the first book I have had the opportunity to read by this author. Some of my favorite characters were Colt and Angelina. But I also enjoyed reading about Colt's father, Sam. It seems like he had a major transformation in his life, and it was fun to read about it and watch him bond with his children who were estranged and choose a new path. It was great proof that there is always possibility for change. I also enjoyed the faith aspect of the book.

    I can't really think of anything about the book that I just didn't like. Of course there were some characters that weren't quite as lovable, but they made the story interesting, and added depth. I am really looking forward to reading book two, which as far as I can tell is about Colt's brother Nick. In this particular book, Nick is a struggling dad, whose wife left him and his two girls. He is having a hard time admitting the need for help. His children are suffering from his lack of understanding of their needs. He would probably be the character you'd want to smack some sense into, but his emotional state is understandable considering what he has gone through. I can't wait to see things turn around for him.

    I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who loves a good clean story of redemption.

    I received this book courtesy of blogging for book to read. I was not asked or required to review positively.

    Colt's life seems to be falling apart and he goes home and to the last place he ever thought he would go home to. His dad is sick and it seems his brother needs help he never expected to come home to having a women running the ranch but will he be able to help his family and get back to NYC or will more secrets keep him on the ranch? Angelina is running the ranch and helping Sam out getting him healing. However she has some secrets that she needs to make some decisions on. She is also now faced with dealing with Sam's oldest when it seems that all is lost she starting to question her choices and weather or not she belongs at the ranch any more. Can she make the best choices for her family?

    I LOVED this book. I super enjoyed the fun characters and the banter and the personalities of the young kids they seem to add a whole new element to the story itself. I totally enjoyed the small home feel of the book and how the past can seem to be everywhere good and bad but finding healing in it all seemed to be the key of this story. I really enjoyed the overall story nothing I didn't like. I enjoyed the fact that I got sucked in and couldn't put it down. This book is a clean romance and well worth the read.

    Back in the Saddle is book one from the Double S Ranch series by Ruth Logan Herne. Ex cowboy Colt Stafford returns home to his familys ranch, Double S Ranch, in Grays Glen, Washington, after his career on Wall Street in Manhattan does not work out as he had hoped. He finds some new surprises at the ranch upon his return to the ranch his father, Sam, is not doing well; he meets the new housekeeper, Angeline, who is a beautiful, gun toting and secretive woman; his brother, Nick, is not happy with older brothers return. Will these surprises make him run far away from the ranch or will new promises on Wall Street make him run back to Manhattan.

    Back in the Saddle is the first book I have read by Ruth Logan Herne. I kept thinking this book would be what a modern day story by Mary Connealy would be like. I found myself laughing out loud in several scenes, including within the first few pages, which caught my interest instantly. Angeline was probably my favorite character. I just loved her strength as a woman and loved her scenes with Colt. They both needed find themselves and figure out where they belong.

    I enjoyed this book and look forward to more by this author and cannot wait to the next installment in the Double S Ranch series.

    Colt Stafford's home! Not by choice, but by circumstances beyond his control. He's got a lot of fences to mend and head-clearing to do, but it's nothing a bit of hard work & determination can't fix! Toss in a fiercely devoted, stubborn & feisty lady house manager with secrets of her own, two precarious nieces vying for his attention, a disgruntled younger brother, a sickly father full of lifetime regrets to make up for and a whole herd of cattle in birthing season to tend to and you got yourself the makings of a hot mess! One thing God is trying to remind Colt of, His timing is eternal and perfect--whether this cowboy turned Wall Street financial wizard can see it or not!

    The Stafford family is like any other you'd find today, imperfect people living imperfect lives. Too many regrets and heartache and a lot of love to give! Sam Stafford; father, rancher, stubborn as the day is long, wants to make amends with his sons. Is it too late or will Colt accept the changes he sees? If it's one thing God can do perfectly, is the business of reconciliation, redemption and second chances. I loved seeing hearts change in this story, how God took the hard ground and watered it with His love and made things new again! A deeply rich emotional story that will entangle you from the start, full of characters you can relate to and spiritual lessons to learn. This reminded me of the Prodigal son story in that no matter how far away we are, God will seek us out and bring us home again!

    I'm definitely looking forward to the next installment of the Double S Ranch; "Home on the Range" Nick Stafford's story!

    I've had this book in my 'to read' basket for months. I finally got around to reading it and it is just such a good book. Ruth Logan Herne is a really good Christian Fiction author, creating characters that are very lively, settings that are believable and wonderful wealths of emotions. I enjoyed this one thoroughly.

    God sometimes uses circumstances that we don't understand nor like to bring about His perfect plan for our lives, to give us the happiness we long for and healing for our hearts. There's much to learn here as well as an enjoyable book to read. AND the sequel comes out Tuesday!!!
