He's come back to Copper Ridge, Oregon, to keep a promise—even if it means losing his heart…

Putting down roots in Copper Ridge was never Alex Donnelly's intention. But if there's one thing the ex-military man knows, it's that life rarely unfolds as expected. If it did, his best friend and brother-in-arms would still be alive. And Alex wouldn't have inherited a ranch or responsibility for his late comrade's sister—a woman who, despite her inexperience, can bring tough-as-iron Alex to his knees. 

Clara Campbell didn't ask for a hero to ride in and fix her ranch and her life. All she wants is the one thing stubborn, honorable Alex is reluctant to give: a chance to explore their intense chemistry. But Clara has a few lessons to teach him, too…about trusting his heart and his instincts, and letting love take him on the wildest adventure of all.

My Thoughts:  I love Maisey Yate's Copper Ridge series, and while I haven't read them all, I have enjoyed quite a few and definitely look forward to getting the chance to read them all.  Wild Ride Cowboy is Alex Donnelly's story.  Alex is one of the four Donnelly brothers who own a ranch together left to them by their grandfather in Copper Ridge.  Alex is also a former soldier who lost his best friend while in the war.  If that's not bad enough, his best friend left him his ranch and asked him to take care of his little sister, Clara.  Well, Clara isn't little at all now, a fact that Alex is acutely aware of.  She does need his help, however, and as much as he has procrastenated giving it, Clara has procrastenated dealing with things on her ranch even more.  Alex, therefore, mans up and steps in.  What he didn't count on was the attraction between them and the things Clara forced him to face about himself and his feelings, as well as his past.  

Clara and Alex's story is one of finding love in the midst of pain and learning how to begin again.  I enjoyed watching their relationship develop in the midst of the trials and hurts they both had to face.  Alex is a stand up hero, in Clara's life as well as in his military career, even if he doesn't believe that.  Clara is stronger than she ever thought, and Alex helps her to see that.  The romance between Clara and Alex is hot, in that Maisey Yate's style, and their story was both interesting and ejoyable.  Definitely check this one out.
