Publisher's Summary

Lucy Albright never wanted her family's Texas ranch, but now it's in foreclosure. She's already lost so much she can't bear the thought of losing one more thing. Lucy learned the hard way not to accept help from a man when there are strings attached, so she'll do whatever it takes to save the ranch on her own terms - even if that means launching an online business marketing high-tech sex toys.
Ranch manager David Harmon has a reputation for being a cowboy with a heart of gold. Even if she refuses his help, down-and-out Lucy is the kind of woman he'll do anything to protect. And while David may not know much about Lucy's naughty side business, that won't stop a cowboy from doing something he's set his mind to.
With the ranch threatened by a scheming neighbor, Lucy can't help but keep David around. Their attraction may be undeniable, but will the spark between them burn her entire future to the ground?

David Is Absolutely Delicious

This is a nice enough story but the heroine was difficult to connect with and most of the time somewhat annoying. Fortunately, I listened to the other 3 books in the series and was really looking forward to David's story. David was just the sort of dreamy cowboy we've seen in the other books and I enjoyed getting another taste of all that hotness. Natalie Ross did an amazing job bringing this story to life. I look forward to the next listen.

This was worth the price I paid. I'm not sure if I would give a credit for it.

Taking Charge: Lone Star Burn, Book 4

Where does Taking Charge rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It is up there in my top 10. The narrator made it very easy to differentiate between the characters.

Who was your favorite character and why?

David. He was such a strong, caring hero. He has honor and strength as a man. He was loyal to those he cared about, always going the extra mile when needed.

What about Natalie Ross’s performance did you like?

As stated above she very easily moved from character to character which made listening very enjoyable.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. It kept my interest very well. The story was a good one. Having characters from other books show up was fun. It is always a great addition to get to see how previous characters are doing.

Any additional comments?

I've read all of this author's books and love them all. However, the heroine in this book, Lucy, made me want to throw the book across the room. She whined the entire book. I almost couldn't finish because of her character. I didn't connect with her and didn't like her at all. David certainly deserved someone a lot different than Lucy. She kept saying how horrible her life was and when she made steps to try and change her situation she whined about that the entire time. Lucy was definitely my least favorite in all the heroines Ruth Cardello has ever written.
