It’s been such fun to revisit Rebel Ranch and the Rainbolt siblings again in the last book of the Hearts of Oklahoma series by one of my favorite authors, Tina Radcliffe. I’ve loved every book in this series and have fallen in love with all the people of Rebel, Oklahoma. The Cowgirl’s Sacrifice is Kate Rainbolt’s story, and what a fantastic tale it is. Kate is independent, courageous, feisty, and needing to heal from some injuries she sustained as a rodeo clown. She heads for Rebel Ranch to recuperate and reassess her job situation but finds that the position as ranch foreman her brothers offered her months earlier has been filled by Jess McNalley, her ex-boyfriend of ten years earlier.
I enjoyed meeting Kate and Jess and seeing their relationship begin to blossom again. Jess is a wonderful hero, and just the man to complement Kate’s personality. What fun it was to have the other Rainbolt siblings and their spouses show up in this story and see what they’ve been up to. As always, there’s lots of action, some drama, romance, and a thread of inspiration to tie everything together and create a delightful, charming read. I can’t wait to see what Tina Radcliffe has for us next.
* 4.5 stars. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy from the publisher and author. All opinions are my own.
The Cowgirl’s Sacrifice, the final book in Tina Radcliffe’s Hearts of Oklahoma series, is a definite winner. Tina Radcliffe is my favorite Love Inspired romance author, and I am never disappointed with her heartwarming western stories with close knit families that tug at the readers’ heartstrings.
Kate Rainbolt, the younger independent sister with purple tipped hair and a career in the rodeo circuit, was a delight to read with her spunky personality. Her reactions to her injuries sustained in the rodeo were realistic and well written. Kate’s ex-boyfriend Jess McNally was a perfect complement to her in this wonderful tale of second chances and discovering God’s unconditional love. It is bittersweet to see this series end, but I can’t wait to see what Tina Radcliffe has in store for her readers next!
*I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author/publisher and was not required to write a positive review. All opinions expressed are mine.
