Posted on What I m ReadingOH MY GOODNESS, AMAZING I absolutely loved Rescued By The Ranger by Dixie Lee Brown I had a rough time with the beginning, and a lot of that stemmed from heroine, Rachel Maguire.She totally rubbed me the wrong way, and the reason was she feared for Garrett Harding life There were times I wanted to shake and tell her He s an Army Ranger they just don t let any guy be a Ranger So, you could see my frustration It was good portion of the story that I just wanted to smack he [...]
This is my first book by Brown and I really did enjoy it I liked how the when the book starts with Garrett coming to the rescue to help Rachel You can tell right away what kind of person he is by him helping someone he doesn t even know Garrett came to find answers about his mother after finding a letter his father hid from him and his brother Luke When Rachel meets him she doesn t like him and feels he did his mother wrong As the story progresses secrets are uncovered and a crazy stalker is on [...]

My first read of a Dixie Lee Brown novel, and I was NOT disappointed It all starts with Army Ranger Garrett Harding finding a letter in his fathers desk drawer Sent a year ago, addressed to he and his brother Luke, it s from his Aunt Peg, his mother s sister, inviting them to the reading of their mother s will following her death Angry that their father withheld the letter from him, Garrett sets off on a road trip to see his Aunt Peg For 29 years he s been told that his mother was a druggie who [...]
4.5 5 starsReceived a review copy in exchange for an honest review.There probably isn t a genre out there that I enjoy than military romance Ok, ok, hockey err sports is pretty up there too, but I just love those military men and their war dogs, too.The team of Garrett and Cowboy is no exception.When Garrett and Cowboy are injured on a tour, Garrett does what he can to get Cowboy to come home and retire with him not that Garrett s planning on retiring, but he wants the dog who proved to be his [...]
Another fabulous read by Dixie Brown She had me by page one I don t read much romantic suspense, but I ll read Dixie any day of the week What makes her different are her characters and the heart she pours into every page Her characters feel like real people and the imagery is well drawn, the emotion realistic and heart tugging So that I don t feel like I m lost in a plot, but lost in their world It pulls me in and I forget I m reading Rescued by the Ranger is so far my favorite of hers Page one, [...]

4 starThe story has laughs, secrets, betrayal, suspense, pain, and heartbreak This is Rachel and Garrett s story Garrett is traveling out to see his Aunt after finding a letter in his father s desk from her His mother left him and his brother when they were little and they never heard from her again When he stops off at a bar he walks in on a possible kidnapping of a woman named Rachel Once he takes her to a safer place and finds out her name she seems to hate him He finds out things are not as [...]
I loved this story This is the first story I have read from Dixie Lee Brown and I loved it Garrett is what a good man should be ,protective and honorable.After finding out news from his past he heads to Idaho The first person he meets is Rachel Rachel found herself in Idaho after running from her past.When they meet the sparks fly Cowboy is highly decorated war veteran who saved hundreds of US military personnel who also happens to be a German Shepherd is a force to be reckoned with.He is a grea [...]
My first choice for a read is not often romantic suspense, but when I am pulled into the story and can t put it down, I start to question that decision Dixie Lee Brown s Rescued by the Ranger danced into the room with an adorable alpha male, a furry sidekick and a huge helping of action Garret was wounded in Iraq, and has returned to the states, only to discover that his estranged mother had died He ventures to his mother s ranch, hoping to discover the answers as to why he and his brother were [...]
Rescued By the Ranger was a great read The author, Dixie Lee Brown, is a new to me author I truly didn t know what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised.Garrett Harding, the son of US Senator Harding and military war hero, has just had his life turned upside down Everything he thought about his Mother s abandonment of both his brother and himself when they were children might not be everything he was told it was While checking for a phone number at his father s desk he comes across a letter [...]
I don t usually read military romance and romantic suspense is not usually my thing but I decided to give this one a chance and I was so glad that I did This book isn t really set around the military, Garrett is a wounded Army Ranger who decides to visit his aunt and get some answers about the mother he never knew before returning to duty While there he meets Rachel and finds himself protecting her whether she likes it or not There is great chemistry between the characters My favorite part of th [...]
Garrett and his pooch are good people, man and dog both trailed her now That s because I told him to stay with you He d die before he left your side Garrett kept moving closer We need to talk, Rachel Garrett is a typical man when it comes to those dirty thoughts and his woman, oh, t Do you have anything on under that robe, sweetheart His swollen manhood jerked and twitched at the thought I liked this book I fell in love with Garrett and of course Cowboy.
Ms Brown always delivers heart pumping suspense, interesting characters and steamy romance With Rescued by the Ranger she gives us all that and , adding a healthy dollop of heart with the engaging relationship between Garrett and Cowboy Throw in an intriguing cast of background characters and I m hoping this is just the first story in a future series.
Dixie Lee Brown is a new to me author so I wasn t really sure what to expect going into Rescued by the Ranger and while it wasn t exactly what I was hoping for, it was still a good read.Rachel and Garrett meet when Garrett stops at her bar to ask for directions to his aunt s lodge and he ends up helping her out of a bit of trouble with a couple of local guys I really enjoyed their meeting but unfortunately things took a turn for the worse as soon as Rachel realized who Garrett was I get that she [...]
Hunky alpha males, loyal dog, sexy scenes and mysteries to be solved kept me entertained from beginning to end, I couldn t put it down until I had answers Garrett and his dog Cowboy made a great team and their bond was amazing I fell for them right from the start and the feeling intensified throughout the book Rachel took a bit to warm up to and although they had some sexy scenes, I didn t feel the love between them as much as their chemistry The mystery surrounding her stalker was well played o [...]
I can t tell you how grateful I was when I discovered this story wasn t complicated Of course, I had to get to the end to realize that, lol I love a complex storyline but sometimes a girl just wants to sit back with a book and enjoy the simplicity of it.Garrett and Rachel s story was simple with a couple of twists and turns that needed to be clarified and or solved The first was Garrett figuring out why his mother abandoned him and his brother and coming to terms with that The second was figurin [...]
Rescued by the Ranger grabbed my attention right from the start, with its twin mysteries, vividly drawn characters, and well maintained suspense The whole stalker issue is pretty well done and adds an element of real danger to the plot, and the main characters relationship is brimming with romantic tension.I fell in love with Garrett, an Army Ranger with both physical and emotional wounds, the latter from his mother s disappearance from his life when he was five He s got a big heart, though, and [...]
3.5, actually A good book to start off my summer reading kick This is the first book that I ve read by Ms Brown I wasn t sure what to expect, but I d had this one sitting in my Nook for a while and decided to give it a shot It s a fast paced story with plenty of action There s not over the top drama, but enough to keep things interesting Garrett is home after his fourth deployment where he and Cowboy, his military canine, were both injured and are on medical leave While looking for something in [...]
This was such a great story and an easy read for me I instantly fell for Garret and his Shepherd, Cowboy who had the coolest name for a dog ever Garret and his dog both come home as wounded warriors but Garrets wounds stem further then a bloodied deployment Bringing his dog home so both of them could heal, he discovered his father s betrayal and ventured off to a mountain town to find the truth Arriving to find the life of a mother he never knew, he also found Rachel Their meeting was dangerous [...]
First book I have ever read by this author but it will not be my last Great read Kept me on the edge of my seat Hoping she is working on a new book about his brother.
There s a lot going on in this novel, from family dramas, to romance, to intense danger and action I enjoyed the story, with the many different layers in it, it kept the interest high, and the pages turning in rapid pace.When Garrett finds out his father has been hiding the truth about his mother most of his life, he takes off on a road trip to get some answers At the arrival to the resort, that his deceased mother owned with her sister, he meets a feisty Rachel, who is not afraid to step into a [...]
Fantastic read, I am so in love with this book A fast past book that made me completely fall in love with Garrett a heart stopping sexy Army Ranger and his sidekick Cowboy his canine best friend Wounded while in Iraq, Garret Harding has returned home only to discover that his mother, who abandoned him years before, has died Garret finds a letter from his Aunt Peg that his father had hidden from his and his brother Garret is furious with his father and decides to head out to see his Aunt, he is l [...]
I am totally dating myself with this acknowledgement, but I think that the 80 s song I Need a Hero by Bonnie Tyler would make the perfect theme song for Rescued by the Ranger Rachel Maguire doesn t want to admit she needs a hero, but like it or not she has found hers in Garrett Harding This sexy Army Ranger will not let her out of his sight once he realizes that she is in danger.Rachel feels that she has exposed enough people to her problems in the past with dire consequences She refuses to allo [...]
A sexy Army Ranger with a loyal dog and a feisty red headwhat s not to like, and I did like Rescued by the Ranger by Dixie Lee Brown One thing that I liked the most is that the characters weren t the same old, same old you find in many romance books Garret is a wounded Army Ranger who knows that his future is either at a desk or out of the Rangers In most books, those guys are broody, surly, and closed off Not Garrett He s open, loving, and willing to risk his life for a stranger.Rachel has a di [...]
Loved it A great romantic suspense with great characters and unique subplots This is my first Dixie Lee Brown book, but I will be following her in the future I enjoyed the people greatly but I was especially happy to see that Cowboy, a retired military k 9, played a real role in the story line In addition to being a good story, the book just plain reads well I was drawn in from the very beginningWhile Garrett waits out time for his rehab to end so he can find out if he is able to return to the R [...]
A non stop action packed romantic suspense The reader is immediately pulled into a tension filled scene from the very beginning where Garrett kicks into action to protect Rachel The story gains even momentum as the plot unfolds Rachel and Garrett find their lives in danger from a stalker who has remained anonymous but scarily ever present in Rachel s life for the past ten years I kept guessing who the stalker might be but it was so well written I wasn t able to guess correctly.I love it when au [...]
DNF I got about 25% through this before deciding it was too much of a chore to continue I see that this has high ratings but the writing just didn t do it for me Given that the plot is a very formulaic stalker suspense with an ex military H hot tempered tough h, I needed depth of character, less absurdity such as why the H had no contact with his mother for decades and way fewer cliches I gave up when the sheriff was described as the most corrupt person in their nasty little locale I was alread [...]
