The Cowboy's Secret Past (Lazy M Ranch, 3) by Tina Radcliffe

The Cowboy's Secret Past: An Uplifting Inspirational Romance (Lazy M Ranch, 3)

He’s not the same man he was
But maybe now he’s ready to be a father

Since leaving his wild rodeo days behind, rancher Trevor Morgan has sobered up and built a faith-filled life. So he’s shocked when the woman caring for his grandfather intrudes on that solitude. Nurse Hope Burke has hidden motives for coming to the Lazy M Ranch—she believes Trevor is the father of her orphaned nephew. Can a loving aunt and a wary cowboy change a little boy’s life forever?


The Morgan men are back, and I couldn't be happier. I've enjoyed getting to know Gramps, Drew, and Sam Morgan, and now there's one more Morgan to claim my heart! This is a heartwarming story with beloved characters that we've met before, an intriguing secret waiting to be exposed, and an inspiring message of hope and forgiveness. I loved the multi-layered characters, the special Lazy M Ranch setting, and the realistic emotions that supported and strengthened the plot of The Cowboy's Secret Past. Regrets, guilt, and a reluctance to fully trust...haven't we all experienced these feelings?

Author Tina Radcliffe paints a poignant picture of the shifting relationship between Trevor Morgan and Hope Burke, and I dare you not to be moved by a young boy's desire to finally have a home and family. The Cowboy's Secret Past proves what I already knew...you can't go wrong with a Radcliffe book!!

I received a copy of this book from the author. There was no obligation for a positive review. These are my own thoughts.
