A rancher returns to Texas to claim his infant son—and falls for the beautiful reporter who reunited them—in this Texas Cattleman’s Club: Fathers and Sons novel by USA TODAY bestselling author Joanne Rock.

“All of Royal, Texas, wants to know who the father is.”

And a beautiful outsider knows the truth.

Rancher Colt Black is stunned to learn he has a secret son. And he owes Sierra Morgan big-time for bringing him together with baby Micah. What Colt feels for the intense reporter goes beyond gratitude, however—and that’s a problem. Indulging in the connection with Sierra is an irresistible risk, especially after she moves onto the ranch to help him with the baby. But soon Colt learns Sierra’s life-changing secret…and their newfound arrangement may never be the same.

From Harlequin Desire: A luxurious world of bold encounters and sizzling chemistry.

The Rancher’s Reckoning by Joanne Rock is the fifth and final book in the Texas Cattleman’s Club: Fathers and Sons series. Outside of reading this book, I only read the one proceeding this, The Rebel’s Return by Nadine Gonzalez. From what I’ve gathered, the series is about discovering who the father is of an infant boy found sitting abandoned on someone’s car. The series kicked off with An Heir of His Own by Janice Maynard. In addition to baby Micah, the series also reveals the ancestry of a prominent member of Royal.

I loved The Rancher’s Reckoning. From the start, Sierra Morgan and Colt Black were easy to like and root for. Honestly, Colt was one of the sweetest heroes I’ve read in a long time. I didn’t find this to be a story with drama. What was probably supposed to be a dark moment didn’t seem to be a dark moment. The story was just even-keeled throughout.

The Rancher’s Reckoning can be read as a standalone read. I think this was a really good ending to the series.


“Love defies logic. There’s no way I can prove my feelings for you, except with time.”
