When a shy woman inherits a ranch, she’ll have to find an inner strength to succeed—and open herself up to love—in this heartwarming novel from New York Times bestselling author Victoria James.

Sarah Turner has led a very sheltered life. So when her parents pass away tragically, suddenly she’s left in charge of the family ranch with little know-how but plenty of will to keep it afloat. Determined not to lose her parents’ legacy or her newfound independence, she needs a hero fast—not to save her, but to show her how to save herself. But she’s unprepared for the ruggedly handsome cowboy who answers her ad.

“Cowboy for Hire,” the ad said, and Cade Walker is quick to respond. Betrayed as ranch manager by his former boss, he’s looking for a new place to put down roots—without the pressure to prove himself again. Except when he meets his new boss, it’s clear he’s not only there to run a ranch but to also teach Miss Independent how to run it. But as they struggle to make the ranch flourish, they’ll both need courage if they hope to find a family…together.

BlueSeal’s Review of Cowboy for Hire

Victoria James is another new author for me. She has been around the romance world since about 2012 so I’m not sure how I have missed her since she has hit both the USA Today and New York Times Bestselling Author lists. Cowboy for Hire is the second book in the Wishing River Series.  Grab your morning coffee and let’s chat about Cowboy for Hire Victoria James.


Imagine running an ad in the local paper (print and online) for a ranch foreman only to find that the print version got more than a little mixed up.  Instead of “Foreman for Hire” it said “Cowboy for Her” and included job duties along the lines of an escort. The online ad was correct so Sarah prayed that cowboys lined up for interviews were actually there for the foreman job.  It was the day that Sarah had been waiting for her entire life, her first day running her family ranch and it was a disaster until the most beautiful man that she has ever seen walked through the door. Cade Walker was more than qualified for the job of an escort but he was actually there for the job of ranch foreman and what do you know, he was qualified for it as well.  However, was the qualified cowboy willing to train Sarah on how to run the ranch?


In an effort to not spoil Cowboy for Hire for anyone, I am going to stop right there with my summary of the book.  I really want to do the book justice with a great summary but I am not sure how to do it without spoiling it. I read the synopsis but it did not prepare me for the emotional journey that Victoria James was going to take me on with Cade and Sarah.  If I really get into a book, I typically cannot put it down. With Cowboy for Hire, I found myself taking breaks because I was becoming emotionally drained but as soon as I put it down, I wanted to pick it right back up. Victoria spent a lot of time in character and back-story development that was needed to make the reader understand the complex characters of Cade and Sarah.  


My rating for Cowboy for Hire by Victoria James…5 out of 5 propellors!  Hint: Have your box of tissues close at hand but I promise you that it will be worth it! 


Victoria James is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of contemporary romance.

Victoria always knew she wanted to be a writer and in grade five, she penned her first story, bound it (with staples and a cardboard cover) and did all the illustrations herself. Luckily, this book will never see the light of day again.

In high school she fell in love with historical romance and then contemporary romance. After graduating University with an English Literature degree, Victoria pursued a degree in Interior Design and then opened her own business. After her first child, Victoria knew it was time to fulfill her dream of writing romantic fiction.

Victoria is a hopeless romantic who is living her dream, penning happily-ever-after’s for her characters in between managing kids and the family business. Writing on a laptop in the middle of the country in a rambling old Victorian house would be ideal, but she’s quite content living in suburbia with her husband, their two young children, and very bad cat.
