My Rating:  4 stars

There is a different feel to this opening story in the Montana Rangers series, one that I’m really not certain that I can put into words for it is truly a “feeling”.  There is a reverence, a respect for the ancient history that makes up the breathtaking beauty of a natural forest.  A sense that you’ve been invited to step onto holy ground to visit, not to stay but to experience and then take that sense of wonder with you into your life.  It’s there in the respect and,yes, love that the rangers, Garrett, Jake and Hunter have for this land they tend and guard.  It’s in the beauty of the trees, the seductive lure of the lake in moonlight.  And even the danger of the forest, natural and man-made, comes across with a sharp edge.  Yes, there is definite world building in Ranger’s Legacy, the kind that exposes your senses and pulls you in, gently but firmly, to another place.

Amber and Garrett have an undeniable pull toward each other.  One that has no logic to it, only instinct, need and a sense of coming home.  Each will fight that need as well as give in a little more with each encounter to the inevitable knowledge that they belong together no matter the vast differences in their personal worlds.  Experiencing that journey was emotional and enjoyable.  We’re given just enough of Jake’s and Hunter’s stories to guarantee that I’m now looking forward to learning more about these dedicated, complicated men.

As I said, there is a different feel to Ranger’s Legacy.  One that may make this a slow to start story for some readers, but I’d encourage you to continue with Garrett and Amber, they have a fascinating, intriguing story to be told – one you won’t want to miss.  I would definitely recommend Ranger’s Legacy to any Contemporary Romance reader who enjoys subtle touches in a story, likable characters, can enjoy the almost sacred history and feel of the national forests in their natural state of beauty, and of curse, lively secondary characters who will soon shine in the spotlight themselves.
