(Montana Strong #1)
by R.C. Ryan
Kindle Edition
Published June 26th 2018 by Forever
A heartwarming western romance about a cowboy who gets a second chance with the first love he couldn't forget in the rugged beauty of the Montana mountains. . . 

Don't miss this special 2-in-1 edition that includes a bonus western romance novella by Sara Richardson!

Once a bad boy...
Ben Monroe was the ultimate bad boy-and everyone in Haller Creek knew it. But now as a sheriff's deputy, Ben spends his time breaking up bar fights rather than starting them, and staying away from trouble...until Becca Henderson comes back into town. She's just as beautiful as Ben remembers-and just as far out of his reach.

Coming home is exactly what Becca Henderson needed. A place of her own, a successful new business, and a chance to reconnect with the sexy cowboy she had a crush on in school. Ben has always blazed his own path and never let anyone stand in his way. It excites-and scares-her. But when an unexpected threat surfaces, Becca will see just how far Ben will go to protect the woman he loves-and fight for their chance at forever.


Name: Ben Monroe
Profession: Rancher and Sheriff's Deputy
Location: Haller Creek, Montana

If your best friends had to pick four words to describe you, what would they pick?

Hellraiser. Tough. Fearless. Badass.

What are you passionate about?
The underdog. Anyone being bullied or threatened. And Mackenzie Monroe. He’s the man who took a chance on three young desperate orphans and pledged to do whatever necessary to keep us from going back into the foster system. He gave us a loving home and a chance to turn our lives around. Mac is my hero. I can never repay him for what he did for us.

Describe a typical Friday night.
Supper with the men who have become our family.  Occasionally a longneck at the Hitching Post, the bar near our ranch. And recently, night patrol for Sheriff Virgil Kerr, who asked me to give him a hand while his leg injury heals.

What are the three things you enjoy doing in your free time?
I like spending time up in the hills with the wranglers and the herds of cattle. And I've got this special place - a plot of land I chose when my adopted father offered my brothers and I the chance to choose whatever piece of the ranch we wanted for our very own. You can't imagine what that means to a guy who never had a place to call his own. I chose a spot up in the hills far from civilization, with only the wild creatures for company. This is my thinking spot.  My dreaming spot. My healing place. My very own slice of heaven.

What's the last song you listened to? 

I love country music. I'd say Patsy Cline. When she sings about being crazy over a lost love, her voice just breaks my heart. And I'd know a thing or two about that.

Favorite book?

Our county social worker and traveling nurse and teacher, Mary Pat Healy, saw to it that my brothers and I read the classics and got a proper education. I guess my favorite has always been To Kill A Mockingbird, because I look around my family and see the good men some folks would think of as misfits or outcasts. Knowing them, I dare anybody to judge them by the faces they show the world. I've experienced first-hand the goodness in their hearts.

If you could go back in time and change one thing in your life, what would it be?
I guess for a long time I'd have said losing my parents at such a young age. But looking back, I realize all the things I was forced to endure, and all the steps I've taken on this journey have led me to the place I'm at now.  So I have to say I wouldn't go back and change a thing.

What are you looking for in an ideal mate?
She doesn't need to do anything except love me for myself.  Just me. A woman who would see beyond the tough guy image to what's in my heart. I guess there are guys who want an easy, Sunday kind of love. But I'm not sure I'll ever have an easy love. Like everything else in my life, I'll probably have to fight for her. But whether it's fighting another guy, or even her own family and their prejudices, I'm up for it.  I've been a fighter all my life. Why stop now?  All I know is, I'm a one-woman guy.  And from the first time I saw her on the playground in Haller Creek, I've been head-over-heels, crazy in love with Becca Henderson. And she doesn't even know I exist.
