Publisher's Summary

For Tim Halloran, Army Ranger turned Colorado cowboy, a simple life on a cattle ranch with no strings is his idea of perfection. Maybe he'll have a ranch of his own someday. Meanwhile, ranching lets him forget his haunting wartime experiences as an army sniper, and being the ranch clown is his coping mechanism. Bad jokes and a love 'em and leave 'em lifestyle make his world turn. But meeting Rebecca Morgan soon has his world spinning in another direction.To Tim, she's a mystery. She must have been absent the day she was scheduled to receive her sense of humor, and when she ignores his overtures, Tim is determined to break through her serious exterior. Little does he know, the secrets she's hiding will turn his life upside down. What will he give up to keep her safe-even if it turns out to be Rebecca?
Rebecca Morgan abandoned her failed marriage and needs to land a high-paying job to help cover her five-year-old nephew's skyrocketing medical expenses. Her farming background left her without marketable job skills, but she's confident once she completes a culinary school course, she'll find a job as a private chef for the rich and famous circles in the big city-as in New York City. She's accepted into a cooking program, one she's sure will solve her problems. Dismayed when the vocational cooking school is connected to a cattle ranch of all things, but needing her certificate, she's willing to overlook the location. Then she meets Tim Halloran, one of the cowboys.
A man is the last thing she's looking for, and an impoverished cowboy is well below the last item on her list. But when her ex comes back into her life, threatening her family, Rebecca will stop at nothing to thwart his plans, even if it means a reluctant partnership with a cowboy-a wisecracking man who seems to be working his way into her heart. Things escalate, and she's faced with a choice. Will she accept her ex's demands for her nephew's sake? Or will she find happiness with a jokester cowhand?

Cows and a crisis and cowboys that rock

Would you consider the audio edition of In Dire Straits to be better than the print version?

I didn't read the book so I don't know but I always like audiobooks better.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked Tim's humor and all the different cowboys' personalities. Sabrina's voice. The ranch scenes

Which scene was your favorite?

I think when Rebecca and Tim are bantering back and forth about the laundry and don't realize the attraction, or don't want to. I like the back and forth between the male and female characters in all her books and I'm glad the same narrator is doing them. Pamela Almand really keeps the characters consistent in all the books and I love her voices for the cowboys!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I didn't like parts of the ending and the part about her going back to the ex really seemed out of character and contrived but it all ended well so I liked it over all.

Spicy western romance and good listen for beach

The popular characters from he Triple D Ranch are back with more romance and suspense. Fast paced and great characters but this time I was a little bit disgusted with the wishy-washy decisions made by Rebecca. All the other books have been great with really good women and hot romances. I'll keep listening because of great guys and the great narrator, but I want the women to be as strong as the men and Ms. ODell is usually known for that.

Keep them coming and I'll keep listening to this ranching and romance series!
