She’s getting out of the city and into his heart…
On Sale: March 14, 2016
Featuring: Reese Hudson; Wade Baker
Add to Wish List
Reese Hudson meant to destroy mementos from her last failed
relationship, not burn down an outhouse and incur the wrath
of a sexy park ranger. When the judge rejects her offer to
pay for the structure and sentences her to rebuild it—with
the hot ranger supervising—she embraces the challenge to
take control of her life.
Park ranger Wade Baker wants nothing to do with the rich
city girl, no matter how tempting he finds her lush curves.
She’s too much like his ex-fiancée, and if he’s learned
anything, it’s that women like Reese don’t fit into his
world. And he sure as hell wants no part of her big city
Reese may not know a hammer from a screwdriver,
but she’s working hard to prove she’s not just some pampered
princess to be toyed with. And damn it if Wade doesn’t
admire her tenacious spirit. If only they got along half as
well outside the bedroom as they do in it, there might be a
chance for them after all…

Re: Romancing the Ranger
I listen to music almost the entire time I am working, unless something is really complex and needs my full attention. It keeps me on track and happier.

I love music! I choose the genre & artists to suit my
mood or to suit what I need to accomplish. I've had
certain music played during MRIs and even in the OR more
than once prior to surgeries. I have songs/artists that
are on the soundtrack of my life and I cannot imagine a
life without music.

I love listening to music when I was younger I use to play the
flute but I wasn't very talented in it I have given it up now

I can't work with music, it's just too much of a
distraction for me.

Getting distracted by books and Goodreads.
(MaryAnne Banks 11:33am March 18, 2016)
Music for working out is very motivating and necessary. A
background of soft music at home is lovely.
(Sharon Berger 11:48am March 18, 2016)
I love jazz and listening to Dave Brubeck and other artists of that era.
(Reeta Harrison 12:32pm March 18, 2016)
Yes, it does! I use music to exhilarate me, soothe me, cry good tears, cry sad tears and just about anything else. It most assuredly affects my mood!
(Kathleen Bylsma 12:49pm March 18, 2016)
Music improves my mood so I am able to tackle tasks.
(Kv H 1:18pm March 18, 2016)
Having the television on while I am trying to work affects
my productivity. It distracts me. I keep looking at the
tv instead of doing my work.
(Tanja Dancy 2:08pm March 18, 2016)
I can't do exercising at all without music, and when I'm
listening while doing the household chores I get way more done
and I'm in a much better mood at the end! Those are about the
only times I listen to music besides when I'm in the car
(Tanya Guthrie 2:14pm March 18, 2016)
I can listen to anything upbeat while cleaning house but
when I am working it has to be instrumental without lyrics
(Donna Antonio 2:41pm March 18, 2016)
HI J, YOU ARE NEW TO ME AND RR SOUNDS SO GOOD!!
(Linda Bass 2:42pm March 18, 2016)
If I am on the treadmill, music is a must, especially to keep the pace!
(Sharlene Wegner 2:51pm March 18, 2016)
I use to write these pretty boring government reports that
could be a bit technical, and absolutely had to be
accurate. I found that techno music was a great background,
assisting me in the writing.
(Susan Voss 3:24pm March 18, 2016)
Romancing the Ranger sounds like an entertaining and fun read.
Taking the time to indulge in a book just for fun usually
leaves me feeling rested and ready to tackle the challenges of
being productive with renewed vigor.

and have some relaxing time

I enjoy listening to music while I'm cleaning. I think it makes me move a little faster and I enjoy it a little more thank I normally would. I will listen to just about any style of music, well except jazz or oldies.

Love music, but do not listen while I am reading unless it is very easy listening music...I do love all types of music...
(Karen Dieffenbaugher 10:09pm March 18, 2016)
Definitely need music to get through a workout, but only if it's in a gym or
on the treadmill inside the house. When I'm outside I'm good just listening
to the birds as I walk/jog.
I also like to listen to the radio while doing the dishes! My sink faces a wall
with no window so without the radio or music playing it gets depressing lol.
(Bella Franco 1:06am March 19, 2016)
Music is great for exercising to. Keeps me going to the
beat. But not while reading I need silence to concentrate

Music helps you relax and puts you in a better place
(Jean Benedict 12:40pm March 19, 2016)
I have to admit the tempo of the music is a key to movement.
Beethoven's fifth is a great way to clean house to. I used to
work as a custodian in a library. Whenever I ran the sweeper, I
had music on. And if I knew the song. I would be singing. I was
known as the singing custodian.It help it go faster and I
certainly enjoyed my work more. lol.

I love listening to music while Im working around the house or at work. Keeps me moving and motivated
(Julie Parrish 2:06pm March 19, 2016)
Music motivates me to lose weight and stay healthy. When I come home from work all stressed out, I pop one of my favorite aerobic workouts in the dvd player and dance around for an hour. I feel great after that!
(Nancy Marcho 2:30pm March 19, 2016)
I listen to music in the car. Rocking out to the Oldies.

listening to that Old Time Rock and Roll takes me back and helps me to relax and daydream of olden days
(Jeri Dickinson 2:47pm March 19, 2016)
I, too, love to write. Listening to my favorites, Cyndi Lauper and Cher, inspire me to write and FEEL more........think True Colors or Believe and you will be inspired as well.

(Valerie Miller 6:18pm March 20, 2016)
Music really sets my mood. I love to cook and clean while
listening. The only thing I have to be conscious of is when
I'm driving because I tend to turn it way up and before I know
it I'm speeding a bit much.
(Candy Voisine 9:04pm March 20, 2016)
I grew up in Detroit. Nothing motivates me more than Motown.
(Deborah Nagy 11:06am March 21, 2016)
Music helps my productivity, though the type of music depends on what I'm doing. If I'm needing to concentrate on something I'm reading or writing, what I'm listening to has to be instrumental.
(Janie McGaugh 11:09am March 21, 2016)
when I was working as a computer programmer I would often
listen to music thru headphones as I coded. it not only
blocked out noise from the office but got me in a rhythm for
typing in the code.

Music has the power to lift spirits and energize moods. It can be inspirational and even help keep your mind off an unpleasant task.

There is always music in my house with a daughter that is a
dance major in college and a daughter that is in cheer.

I'm at my most productive when I have music going. I just got
a new portable blu-tooth speaker, so I can take it through the
house with me while I'm getting things done. TV distracts me,

fresh air and the little one's laughter!
(Saundra Warren 12:16pm March 21, 2016)
Sounds like a fantastic book! I've been writing poetry
since I was in middle school. I also really enjoy writing
letters, which, I think is a lost art. It relax me like
nothing else does, & people have told me that they've never
received such beautiful ones!
(Maria Proctor 12:16pm March 21, 2016)
Yesterday, I wound up listening to country music....it was a particularly bad day for me and country supplied the proper blend of upbeat and enduring :)
(Kathleen Bylsma 12:26pm March 21, 2016)
Great advice. I am writing my first book. I noticed when I listen to music my daughter listens to when she edits her second book, I felt inspired! I have never read your books, but would love the chance.

exercising, walking with my tunes. It helps to accomplish
the task easier and faster.

I love music... lightens up my mood... helps me relax... makes me want to dance!
(Colleen Conklin 1:00pm March 21, 2016)
Since I'm professional chamber musician, I do have to say that music is one of the most important parts of my life, and I'm extremely lucky that Wisconsin has the best classical music public radio station in the country (check it out: WPR.org, and click on the link for WERN). Having said that, I want you to know that I will be forwarding this posting to one of my best friends who, like me is a professional chamber musician, but who also happens to be the fiddler in one of the best local bluegrass bands in Madison!! Many thanks for the post, and for the contest!!

Music helps me get motivated and doing things. It makes me
feel alive and come alive!
(Terri Rinko 1:33pm March 21, 2016)
I can't seem to do anything without listening to music, I
love having something going on in the background but if
it's a TV show or movie then I'll get distracted and
watch instead of what I'm supposed to be doing LOL
(Kelly Donovan 1:34pm March 21, 2016)
I love music. It makes my day better. Now when I am concentrating, I do not hear music in the background. So occasionally, I do nothing but listen to the music.
(Phyllis Lamken 1:55pm March 21, 2016)
I grew up playing both violin and piano, and composed music reflecting my mood. As for productivity, I can't drive to Steppenwolf or I speed! It would be productive if I drove a race car though! hee, hee I drive to Mowtown quite well. I like to garden to any music. And to sleep I like various nature sounds to slip into sleep!
(Betsy Pauzauskie 1:57pm March 21, 2016)

I have to have music on lightly in the background. The type
changes from day to day though.

Old time rock and roll relaxes me and I can get more work done
(Jeri Dickinson 3:05pm March 21, 2016)
Honestly, I enjoy the peace and quiet. I like to be left
alone while I work. I guess that's the introvert in me.
(Jolene Bailey 3:48pm March 21, 2016)
Music really gets me going and moving! I love to listen to music when I am
cleaning because it is upbeat and makes the boring and annoying tasks
slightly more fun!
(Lily Shah 4:00pm March 21, 2016)
I love listening to music, I hope to one day learn how to read and play the
piano, guitar and drums. I always play music that's fits the mood that I'm in.
One thing can't do is listen to music while doing my assignment for class
and reading books it's a distraction.

Since I am retired productivity and I live in different worlds
but good music does brighten my world. My mood dictates the
genre; some days it's the blues but maybe the next is cajun
zydeco. Anyday is a good day for Elvis.

I listen to music when I fold laundry. It helps make the
process go by faster. I also listen at work if I'm doing a
long and tedious project.
(Melissa Amster 5:56pm March 21, 2016)
I love music, but I don't necessarily need it to be
productive. Recently, I started listening to audiobooks
where I had avoided them before. It's nice to be able to
"read" and be productive at the same time, but I still
prefer reading a book myself. In the end, it's caffeine
first that gets me going and secondly, seeing progress.
(Terrill Rosado 6:04pm March 21, 2016)
Getting/being really mad about something can really get me busy. Having my feelings hurt by someone will kill any desire to get anything done.
(Lisa Downs 6:20pm March 21, 2016)
I'm a former voice major so music is very important to
me. I've been singing since I was very little and when I
was about 6 or so I used to think that in the summer,
when the windows were open, a talent agent walking down
the street would hear me and rush in our house to sign me
as the next Shirley Temple.
(Sandy Pochapin 6:56pm March 21, 2016)
I always workout to music. It makes the time go by faster!
(Lori Raines 7:17pm March 21, 2016)
I make playlists for plot development, typically songs
that beg to be included by creating pictures in my mind.
As for actual writing, bring on the classical. I have a
large Classical music playlist, it's what I play when I
really get into the zone.
I use high energy stuff for the treadmill. I love guitar
and banjo, so I'll have to try your bluegrass idea.
Thanks for the tips. They are both generous and helpful.
(Lonzine Lee 7:53pm March 21, 2016)

perfect accompaniment to a good book.

Strangely for someone who loves music I seldom listen to it
while working, perhaps music is too important to me to have
the distraction of work interfere.

lol, Reese sounds like a woman after my own heart. I have been trying to deal with "separation anxiety" for quite a few years now. I was married to the love of my life (for 32 years), had 3 beautiful daughters (who are now in their 30's and finally pumping out grandkids), but as time went by, I grew up, but my husband didn't. He forgot that "sex, drugs and rock and roll" was our past routine and I finally had to cut the chord. It has now been 3 years (today as a matter of fact) since our divorce and I am still feeling like I am floundering. Maybe Reese has some answers for me...or, at least some distraction!

Music changes my productivity. I'm online all day and while
I'm working, sometimes I 'fall out'. Meaning, I dose off. But
when I put on my headphones and play my favorite songs that
NEVER happens. Music really changes things. It's life really.
And when I'm cleaning it's the best thing.

We love music when doing house work. The book sounds interesting, thanks
(Deb Pelletier 10:06pm March 25, 2016)
I noticed many years ago, the effect that music has on my productivity,
attitude, and outlook. I used to listen to the radio when I was trying to get
things done, but found that I stopped too often to change the station. (I'm a
station changer in the car, too.) So I started listening to my records. I soon
learned that the tempo, words, loudness, sentimentality, etc, all played a
part in how much I accomplished. It's kind of funny, because a number of
years ago I made a bunch of bluegrass CDs for my dad, and realized that I
work really well with that music, but I had to play it only when I was the only
one home. I learned that what works for me can drive others nuts, and what
works for, say, one of my children, all adults now, can drive me nuts. Music
is a very personal driver.
(Teresa Williams 11:31pm April 13, 2016)
