Rock’s Alaskan Blackout is the third in her “Kingsland Ranch” series, after The Rancher’s Plus-One. When Quinton Kingsley tracks his estranged and elusive half-brother to his last known residence—on Alaska’s Aleutian Islands—he never expects to find Clay’s sister, bartender McKenna O’Brien, in his place. McKenna knows her brother has reasons for wanting to keep his other family away, but the more time she spends with Quint—especially during a lengthy blackout where they only have one bed between them—the less sure she is of where her allegiances should be. In Critch’s The Wrong Rancher, third in her “Heirs of Hardwell Ranch” series, after Second Chance Rancher, reporter Piper Gallagher is stunned to find out that the father she never knew is one of the wealthiest ranchers in Texas. While getting to know her new family, Piper is drawn to the rancher next door, Maverick Kane. Their families have been feuding for a generation, though, and Mav’s got secrets of his own. Is their star-crossed attraction doomed, or will love overcome all?
VERDICT These series continuations offer a plethora of classic romance tropes, sure to appeal to fans and newbies alike.
