"Give the Lady a Ride" by Linda W. Yezak
Patricia Talbert is a high class social co-ordinator from New York and a city girl at heart. Talon Carlson is a ranch foreman and champion bull rider from Texas, your typical Western guy. Will opposites attract when their worlds collide?
Give the Lady a Ride by Linda W. Yezak is a modern Western romance and a fun culture clash. Patricia Talbert has just inherited the ranch that Talon Carlson runs. But her mission to sell the ranch is derailed when she discovers not only a few family secrets on the ranch, but that she has a deep attraction to Talon. Knowing that the attraction may be mutual, she decides to buy herself some extra time on the ranch by issuing Talon a challenge - she wants him to teach her how to ride bulls.
I am a city girl at heart so I can definitely relate to Patricia's hesitation regarding the ranch at first. That sort of stuff is not on my radar. But Linda W. Yezak's writing pulled me right in from the start and never let me go. I quickly found myself falling for the ranch life. The writing is wonderful in that it made an unfamiliar world come alive without making it too simplistic.
This is a Christian novel and the story has the right amount of faith in it. It's not in your face and it's not preachy, but it is an important part of the story. The faith of the characters is not forced or stereotypical, it's a real faith and I really appreciated that about this book.
Give the Lady a Ride is a fun novel that takes you inside a fast-paced and down-home world. It is a great read and if you're looking for a funny, sweet Christian story this is one you should definitely pick up.
I would like to thank the author, Linda W. Yezak for providing me with a copy of this book.
