Two years after leaving home to make his own fortune, Joshua Bradley has finally returned to the Bradley Equine Ranch—and to Tessa McCade, the sexy ranch manager with whom he shared a single steamy tryst.
Tessa now owns the ranch like she's always dreamed—but it's in trouble. Dozens of horses have been lost and she's on the brink of bankruptcy.
To save his family's business, Josh offers to buy it from her...and share the ranch house with her once again.
Tessa chafes at needing Josh's help, but she's never forgotten the taste of pleasure Josh gave her so long ago. Soon, neither of them can resist the desire mounting between them, and unleash a passion that is even more powerful than Tessa's pride...
Tessa’s Pride by Olivia Brynn is an extremely sensual read, but Joshua’s and Tessa’s romance is oh so sweet… a compelling read with enormously appealing characters. A tight plot keeps the novel moving at a fast pace.
4 Stars[A]n excellent example of what a great novella can be: short, sweet, sexy, with a bit of intrigue to keep the pace fast and to balance out the sexy, and believable conflict between the characters that lends itself to a fairly quick resolution in 100 pages. I look forward to reading more from Brynn!
Ms. Brynn’s writing was solid and good enough to develop a sweet love story with a little bit of mystery considering the word count limitation. All in all, I enjoyed my foray into Ms. Brynn’s work and I can see myself reading her again in the future.
