Book Tour Launch for
A Rancher to Remember
By Karen Rock
Note from the author
Welcome back to the Cade-Loveland extended family! Their 100+ year-old feud is finally over, the water rights dispute settled, and now they can live peacefully, right? Oh… if only it were that simple… Lots of drama still ahead for these strong, faithful and hardworking ranchers in the sixth book of my Rocky Mountain Cowboys series, a raw, complicated second chance love story with a dramatic plot twist you won’t forget!
A Rancher to Remember is Daryl Loveland’s romance, the adopted son of the Lovelands who has striven to prove himself worthy by always doing the right thing, even if it meant giving up his first love, Cassidy, years ago. A misguided night of passion and an unplanned pregnancy ended with him marrying Leanne sister instead of Cassidy. Since Cassidy had been wavering between settling down with Daryl and the conflict-journalist career she’d pledged to pursue, it should have ended well for all… except Cassidy never stopped loving Daryl and second-guessing what could have been. She hadn’t been in contact with her sister or Daryl in ten years but after a call from her sister, she wakes in a hospital back in Carbondale with no memory of why she is there or what caused the car accident that killed her sister. Daryl needs answers, too. He doesn’t understand why his wife had a packed suitcase and her passport in that car. Was she leaving him and their two, adorable children? What follows is a story with themes of family, intrigue, betrayal, overcoming grief, redemption, forgiveness and a second chance at true, and lasting love.

They can’t change the past…
but they can choose their future
Globe-trotting journalist Cassidy Fulton is back in Carbondale, Colorado. Only she can’t remember why—or the accident that killed her estranged sister. Helping her piece together this mystery is her brother-in-law and former fiancé, Daryl Loveland. Overcoming their grief seems impossible. Yet one thing is clear: Cassidy can’t imagine her life without Daryl or her adorable niece and nephew. But can the ranch ever really be her home?
The reader is immediately swept up into Karen Rock’s romance, A Rancher to Remember, as Cassidy Fulton risks her life to expose corruption in the Philippines, and the intrigue continues as she struggles to attain the missing sections of her memory after returning to her hometown of Carbondale, Colorado. And although her circumstances are completely different there, with her past staring her in the face, Cassidy’s future feels as uncertain as it did when she was fleeing bullets in the islands’ tropical forests.
Having received a mysterious message from her estranged sister, Leanne, Cassidy finds herself in the hospital, seriously injured, but she can’t remember the car accident that put her there and killed Leanne. Cassidy has much to mull over as she slowly recovers and, staying in the home of her former fiance, Daryl Loveland, who was also her brother-in-law, is extremely awkward–especially since she must fight the deep-seated feelings she still has for him.
Family loyalty runs strong in the Loveland clan, and Daryl holds himself to some high standards concerning their ranch and the memory of his late wife, while Cassidy is determined to respect her sister, even though they’d gone years without communicating. In addition to this internal conflict, she feels the nearly constant call to return to her journalism career, traveling to dangerous locations, helping the world to be a better place while proving her self-worth.
With family problems and inhibitions surrounding them, Cassidy and Daryl wrestle with the past, as well as the present, wondering if there is any way they can have a future together.
