Book 2: Texas Cowboy Justice

Noah Quinn lives off the grid as much as he can. His cabin is a half an hour away on the property so he doesn't have to be around T.J. His father. He'd been staying away from the main house until one of his other brothers came home. Soon, the other four should be home too.

 Mikayla Rae Johnson had really enjoyed her few dates with Noah. Then something changed and instead of confronting him...she's been avoiding him like the plague. Until she's kidnapped and he's the one to rescue her. She quickly finds out that things weren't quite the way they seemed.

 I'm enjoying this series. Seven sons of T.J. Quinn have been summoned home for some big announcement. The three that are there are wondering if he's ill. The man had an anger problem once their mother passed away. They lost both mother and father that day.

He'd come, find out what was going on, and head back to Colorado.

 Savannah Moore had a terrible experience a year ago. It shook her world. She could no longer function normally because of what an evil person had stolen from her. She finally came to Gunner, Texas, to stay with Aunt Becky. Her only living relative. She'd been happy the two weeks she'd been there, working in Aunt Becky's bakery.

 After a year of running and fear, especially of bigger men, it was amazing that Savannah felt such peace and comfort around Liam when he came into the bakery. And it's a good thing, because the next twenty-four hours she really needed someone she trusted by her. Page-turning book and series.

Book 4: Texas Cowboy Daddy

 Phoenix made a huge mistake and he's not sure he can be forgiven. Forgiveness is something that is dogging him right now. As he looks at his own life and his mistakes, he wonders if he can ever forgive T.J. for the mistakes he made. Exciting series.

Book 5: Texas Cowboy's Baby

Cayden Quinn was the best tracker around. Many ranchers depended on him when they had trouble with poachers. He'd been on a job for the past eight months and just returned home to Quinnland to see why he was summoned home. He found more than he ever expected.

 Madison Carter was mourning her parents. Her dad had died last week. Her mom, she had dementia and rarely knew who Madison was. She also mourned another person. Cayden Quinn. Their romance was sweet, but short. He lived for danger. She wanted someone home every night. Didn't make it easier.

 When Madison needed someone the most in her life—someone to save her, literally—Cayden is there. Where she thought she was just mourning her father, suddenly everything in life seems to be getting thrown at her. Another exciting story in this series.

Book 6: Texas Cowboy's Bride

Aiden Quinn had left Gunner, Texas, after high school. Never to return until now. Never realizing how much he'd left behind in his anger to get away. Not only did he distance himself from the man he hated, his father, but along with that...his brothers and his best friend.

 Chloe Brighton only had her brother, Nicholas. And now, he's gone, but she's determined to find him...or what happened to him. She's been on her own so long and living her life watching over her brother...that when she has someone come up beside her to help her, she's not sure how to react.

 As the seven brothers come back together to Quinnland Ranch...although Noah and Eli had never left...they rethink their reasons for leaving and see what they left behind through new...more mature...eyes. I love this series. Great characters and storylines.

Book 7: Texas Cowboy's Family
Eli Quinn is the oldest brother. As he watches his six younger brothers finding happiness, something he wasn't able to do, he's still thankful for his two kids. Oliver and Olivia are his pride and joy. Their mother may have left and wants nothing to do with them, but Eli is giving all he has to them...while working the rest of the time.

 Emery Young only has her sister and niece left in her life. When she wakes up one morning to find out her sister needs her to take Aria, her six-week-old niece, and go into hiding...her world turns upside down. Thankfully she ends up in the small town of Gunner, Texas. Seems they treat strangers like family and she definitely needs more family.

 I loved this page-turner series. Loved the characters and storylines. The type of series that you're sad to see end.

Book 8: Texas Cowboy Sheriff

Sheriff Griffin “Griff” Quinn had wondered about the newcomer to Gunner, Texas. His town to protect. Then he got to find out more about her firsthand after helping her out of a bind. All his instincts told him she was in trouble, running from something. And too bad, because he liked her but knew she wouldn’t be in Gunner for long.

Laurel Roberts had been on the run for nine months now. After being in Gunner for three months, she wished she could stay. But, the prickles were running down her neck. Someone was watching her. She couldn’t stay.

I was happy to see Griff get his story. The reader can meet Griff as his cousins find love one by one and often need his help as the sheriff. Looking forward to the next book, Griff’s brother Harding.

Book 9: Texas Cowboy Marshal

Harding Quinn is a U.S. Marshal, and he’s been shot. Fortunately, his instincts kicked in, but he was still hit. There is nothing worse than sitting around a hospital or at home for a man like him. So when he finds his beautiful nurse is in trouble, he has to help her.

Naomi Martin is a nurse during the night shift. Someone’s been leaving ‘gifts’ on her vehicle, and she’s not happy about it. And the feeling of being watched as she walks through the dark parking lot doesn’t help.

Naomi was thankful for Harding’s advice and help. But she had to fight her attraction to him. She lost two men she already to jobs that involved protecting people. Easy to say, but harder to follow through as she spent time caring for this remarkable man.

Book 10: Texas Cowboy Lawman

Barrett Quinn had to enact a plan he never thought he’d need. He was going into hiding. Dirty Joe had escaped prison, and Barrett had been warned the evil criminal was heading his way. On the way, he finds a wounded woman. A complication he doesn’t need considering anyone associated with him could be harmed.

Connie Owens didn’t know how she was injured down some farm road. What she did know was that someone close to her was out to kill her. She had proof. Connie just had to stay alive long enough to prove it. Such lousy timing to meet up with the gorgeous man who had saved her life.

I enjoyed this story. I like them all, but this was exceptional. Both the hero and heroine are running for their lives. Great plot and characters.

Book 11: Texas Cowboy Officer

Crawford Quinn, an Austin police officer, is forced to take some time off after being held captive with a bomb strapped to him. His fishing trip on the ranch isn’t going so well either when a storm kicks up. But, everything changes when he goes to a small shelter on the property.

Virginia Porter doesn’t know who she is. She believes she’s her twin sister, Veronica. She isn’t sure how she ended up back in Gunner, Texas, and on Quinnland. But, she feels safe on this land. If she isn’t Virginia, though, why does she feel like she was the one who was in love with Crawford as a teenager?

Captivating story. It’s a real page-turner between her memory lapses and trying to find out where her sister is. As with all of Barb Han’s books, I’m really enjoying this series.

Book 12: Texas Cowboy K9 Patrol

Lawson Quinn wasn’t expecting the blast from the past that came to his sliding door one stormy night. His late best friend’s wife. In danger. Guilt hit him as he’d promised Kevin that he’d watch out for her on his deathbed. He hadn’t. It was too hard. She was the one he’d hesitated on and then lost. So, for now, he just needed his best friend and the closest living being near him, his K9 partner, Kodo.

Eileen Houston Had noticed someone following her, watching her. But after being run off the road…she was sure she was in danger. She also suspected her late husband, who had been a cop, left something behind that could hurt her…or worse.

Another page-turner as Lawson works to find out what Kevin had been into so that he could protect Eileen. And he had to be careful because those same sparks he felt the first time he laid eyes on her were still sparking.

Texas Firebrand Series
Book 1: Rancher to the Rescue
Adam Firebrand is from a Texas ranching family. He’s the oldest of nine boys and the second oldest of his nine cousins. His grandfather, the Marshall, has just passed away, so all heck is about to break out. His father and uncle were constantly at odds…and now they had the will to add to that. But, a distraction he didn’t expect sort of fell into his life to take away from all the family drama.

Prudence Owens had no clue how she ended up with a baby. And then she finds out that she’s lost three days! The only good part of her life right now is being around Adam Firebrand. And the baby. Not so fun is the fact that someone seems to be after her, and she doesn’t know why. Especially with no memories!

This is the first book in the new series. It introduces the reader to Adam and his closest brother in age…and friendship…Brax. Looking forward to more.
Book 2: Disarming the Rancher
Brax Firebrand, the second-born son after Adam, finds their neighbor hiding in the barn’s loft. It wasn’t an odd thing to find her there as a child, but now she was a beautiful woman…and a singing sensation. After finding out about her situation, every instinct in him fired up to protect her.

Raleigh Perry had left the town she lived in with Nana fourteen years ago to become a singer. Nana was gone now, and the home and acreage were hers. Only, it would always be Nana’s place. For now, it was a refuge. The band, Raleigh specifically, had been threatened, and they had to cancel their tour until they found the culprit.

And the secret of who was out to harm Raleigh wasn’t the only thing happening. A secret on the Firebrand Ranch was about to come out of hiding too. A big, life-changing secret. Loving this new series and looking forward to book three.

Book 3: Rancher on Fire
Corbin Firebrand got a text for help from someone he didn’t want to see. The girl he was best friends with since third grade. They’d decided not to date because it would mess up their friendship…now it was easy to see that was a mistake. But that was in the past. She had upped and married his cousin Kellan.

Liv Holden loved her small-town, but since she returned…things had happened. Besides being refused services and having people being rude, she also got threatening texts, not to mention a dead animal on her porch. She couldn’t stay here. But, she needed help and she only had one person to ask.

Corbin’s dad and uncle were always at each other. Now that the Marshall had died, it was even worse. By crossing the line to help his cousin’s ex-wife… Well, it wouldn’t be good. Corbin soon found out that someone had to stand with Liv and protect her. And that would be him. Another page-turning series!

Book 4: Rancher on the Line
Dane Firebrand was still dealing with coming back to his new routine. After seventeen years in the army, he was returning to his hometown to pay respects to a dead grandfather he never respected, and then he’d be out of there. He didn’t expect to run into a woman who needed his help.

Catalina Ivey was on the run. After she found out her boss was going to use an app she was creating for evil, she found somewhere safe for her son and hid out to finish the app and sell it to a competitor who wouldn’t abuse it. She ended up in a small cabin in Lone Star Pass, a place her boyfriend had spoken of before he died. A place that one of his teammates was from.

The Firebrands are a splintered family. The grandfather had made sure his two sons were always fighting…even in his death. Dane had left when he turned eighteen, carrying secrets with him. A burden he shouldn’t have carried. Love this series, and some things are happening that have me looking forward to the next book to see what happens next.

Book 5: Undercover with the Rancher

Eric Firebrand was feeling a bit testy about having a stranger working on their books. He hadn’t been against the idea until seeing a stranger in the house. A beautiful stranger, but still, a stranger. And he didn’t trust the way she was so nervous. He’d just work closely with her and keep an eye on her.

Romy Nelson pretended to be Dawn Driver to get onto the Firebrand Ranch so she get her half-sister, Sasha, out of trouble. Again. As she met the family, she knew she couldn’t go through with this. It wasn’t who she was and she just didn’t feel right about it.

Once Romy turns to Eric, they get to work on finding out who is behind blackmailing Sasha and digging on information about them. And, Romy found it nice to have someone that had her back for once. Another good addition to this series.

Book 6: Rancher in Danger

Fallon Firebrand is heading home. He’s been in the military for twelve years, and he figures it’s time to come and take his place on the ranch. Helping a woman on the way home changes everything.

Birdie West is on a mission for her grandmother, Meg. She has to go to the Firebrand Ranch and show them the papers Meg had given her. She doesn’t expect much but has to try to accomplish her errand for her grandmother’s sake. It’s nothing like she had expected.

Fallon didn’t know if he’d see Birdie again after helping her out, but when she comes to the ranch on business…and things start happening…not just with his heart but with her safety…he knows he’ll be putting his return to ranching off until he can help Birdie and Meg. Romance, suspense, and other background stories make for a great, page-turning read.

Book 7: Set-up with the Rancher
Grayson Firebrand was the brother chosen to go “babysit” a spoiled princess. Yes, a real live princess. The daughter of a woman their mother had gone to college with. He had in his mind what she’d be like. He was wrong.
Princess Kyra Triesen has to stay hidden so that whoever was out there to try and kidnap her to get her father to do their bidding couldn’t succeed. But now, she was separated from her security team.
So many gangs could be out there trying to grab her country for their criminal activities that it’ll be hard to know who is after her. If only she could find her cousin Charlie who had traveled with her. In the meantime, Grayson wasn’t hard to be around at all. I’ve enjoyed all the books in this series so far.
Book 8: Rancher Under the Gun

Ian Firebrand had been devastated when his girlfriend suddenly left town ten years ago. He’s continued to help her father when he asked, though. And this time, she’s back home. Then, to top things off, he finds out he has a son. This reunion quickly turns into an angry one for Ian.

Daphne Lynn Thompson is returning home to help her dad. Unfortunately, he’s just been diagnosed with rapid onset dementia. She’s put off returning for ten years. Now, she has to face her dad being sick and the likely chance of running into Ian. She just didn’t expect that reunion to happen so quickly.

Trouble is following Daphne home and Ian’s. No matter how upset he is with her, protective instincts kick in. He has to protect both the woman he once loved—maybe still does—and his son. This whole series has been outstanding, but I really enjoyed this story.

Book 9: Taking Cover with the Rancher

Hudson Firebrand is feeling out of place on the ranch. He’s considering opening up a taco business. He’s not ready to settle down as his eight brothers had done recently. And then everything changes when his cousin Vaughn wants to meet up.

Anisa Turner had stopped to help someone, and now her life is in danger. As a nurse, she wouldn’t have done anything differently. However, she does have her unborn baby to consider now.

As Vaughn hands Anisa over to Hudson to protect, Hudson agrees without knowing why someone is after Vaughn…and now Anisa. And soon, he finds himself feeling very protective of the woman and unborn child as he does all he can to protect them from some unknown enemy.

The Firebrand cousins are mentioned more in this series as Hudson is the last brother and son on Brody and Lucia’s side. I hope there are more to come.

Book 10: Vaughn: Firebrand Cowboys

Vaughn Firebrand has been in the military for a decade. Unsure of his future, he takes time off to help an old friend. Blaine’s niece, the woman Vaughn had loved and been dumped by, needed his protection. Hopefully, he can close the door on his past for good so that he can move forward.

Katy Castillo thought the danger was over—boy was she wrong—she and Vaughn are shot at, run off the road, and running from an unknown enemy. But, most of all, Katy realizes what a mistake she made years ago and knows it’s too late for a second chance. Still, maybe they could be friends.

Another exciting book in the Firebrand series.
