Reno, Nevada Present Day

Susanna Hart is working hard to build her pastry business and raise her two-year-old cousin, Ally.  When Casey Thomas moves back home and takes up residence right next door, Susanna is not sure of her feelings.  She and Casey slept together in a heated moment ten years ago, but Casey made it clear he cared nothing for her when he left town without a word right afterward.  They'd been friends all their lives, and Casey's sister Audrey is Susanna's best friend.  Now the situation is awkward.  Susanna feels the less time she spends around Casey the better, as she can't overcome her feeling of shame for seducing him all those years ago.

Casey Thomas is back in Reno, setting up an office for his construction company and building a new restaurant for a very famous singer.  But he has another reason for moving back into his old family home.  He promised his sister Audrey that he would secretly help Susanna get back on her feet financially, but with every offer of help he gives her, Susanna gives him the cold shoulder, refusing to even speak to him.  Casey owes her family more than he can say; the Harts helped him raise his sister after their parents died, and he owes Susanna.  What Casey doesn't count on is falling in love with her.  Will he be able to explain that his promise to Audrey has nothing to do with his feelings for her?

REEDEEMING THE CEO COWBOY is yet another of Charlene Sands's great reads!  Casey and Susanna keep their distance from each other at first, but slowly their true feelings begin to emerge.  Can they overcome their past mistakes and all the secrets while they find a new path to love?

With a cast of dynamic secondary characters and heartfelt emotion, Casey and Susanna learn to trust one another and finally open their hearts to each other.  REEDEEMING THE CEO COWBOY is the fourth novel in The Slades of Sunset Ranch series, and follows THE SECRET HEIR OF SUNSET RANCH (November 2013), SUNSET SEDUCTION (June 2013), and SUNSET SURRENDER (January 2012).

A great book to while away an afternoon with, REDEEMING THE CEO COWBOY is a true winner!
