Montana Glory by R.C. Ryan

Book Description:
The last thing in the world Zane McCord wants is a wife. But after returning home to the family ranch in Montana to help his cousins search for the lost treasure that is their legacy, Zane can't help notice that love and marriage seem to be contagious. Both his cousins have succumbed, but he refuses. Determined to stay a bachelor till he dies, Zane wants to devote his time to filming documentaries and taking care of the ranch...and then Riley Mason walks into his life.
The last thing on Riley Mason's mind is romance. Sent to the McCord ranch to save the family's accounting problems, she only wants to impress her firm in Helena and be on her way. Life as a single mother isn't easy and she needs to impress her bosses for a raise. But when Zane McCord opens the door, her breath catches in her throat and a desire she's never experienced before takes over her. When the McCords insist that she and her daughter, Summer stay at the ranch, she's forced to give in and before long, she's pulled into their search for the long lost treasure. But she absolutely draws the line at getting involved with Zane McCord, playboy and heartbreaker extraordinaire.
But as they all get closer to finding Coot's lost treasure, a dangerous series of accidents target Riley and her daughter Summer. Can Zane keep her safe while trying to win her heart?

My Thoughts:
I really liked this book! Zane is a McCord and is a cowboy through and through. Reiley is a woman who is smart, beautiful, protective of her child, and makes Zane wish he was the 'marrying' type. Reiley is hired on to work on the McCord ranch as an accountant and is immediately attracted to Zane. Zane feels the same but neither of them want a relationship. Zane is head over heels for Summer, Reiley's daughter, and when some strange accidents start happening, he has to keep both of them safe. He just can't guarantee to keep his heart that way!
I liked Zane's character immediately. He is just such a COWBOY :) The author did a good job with the emotions with story, you could feel Zane's heartbreak at having to leave the ranch and feel his love for Jimmy and the rest of his family. Reiley's protectiveness of her child was extremely endearing but also somewhat didn't fit with her allowing other people to take and do things with her child. Summer was too precious. I'm a sucker for a smart child that is passionate about horses! I wish I'd read the other books in this series before reading this one so I had the background on the other couples but I really didn't feel I was missing anything without that knowledge.
This book was a 4/5. It was a good, quick read. Perfect with hot chocolate :) Probably would be better if you read it third in the series.
