Novella Review and Giveaway: When the Rancher Came to Town by Emma Cane

I haven’t read anything by Emma Cane previously, so I was looking forward to checking out When the Rancher Came to Town.  If I had to knock the story for anything, it would be for being so short.  This is a novella, so the timeline is very compressed; the story takes place over a weekend.  I love novellas because I can plow through them so quickly, but when I like them, I always wish they were longer!  So, for me, the format is a double-edged sword.

Interview with Sawyer Bennett, Author of ALEX

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Good morning, Sawyer!  Describe yourself in five words or less.

[Sawyer Bennett] Empathetic, funny, creative, honest, procrastinator

[Manga Maniac Cafe] Can you tell us a little about your book?

[Sawyer Bennett] Alex is the first book in my new series with Loveswept, called the Cold Fury Hockey Series. Alex Crossman is a professional hockey player with the Carolina Cold Fury. He’s a bit damaged, a little bit of an ass, and completely averse to developing relationships with people. He’s one of those men that you just want to “fix”. Sutton Price is a social worker that gets sort of gets stuck with Alex to create an outreach program for at-risk youth. Both of them have traumatic backgrounds, but both of them let it shape them differently in their adult lives. This is very much a book about Alex’s journey to really find himself and let the past go. Oh, and it’s pretty steamy and romantic as well!!!
