Two-time world champion bull rider Rafe Noble is at the top of his game when tragedy hits. Guilt stricken over the loss of his best friend, Rafe accidentally drives his truck into the lobby of the Breckenridge Hotel during Katherine's fund-raiser.

Rafe Noble, two-time world champion bull rider and current king of the gold buckle, had never met a bull that he feared. Oh, sure, he knew well the tension before a ride that buzzed his nerves and slicked his hand inside his taped-tight leather glove. But normally he shook it off the second he wound the bull rope, sticky with rosin, around the animal’s chest and wedged it into his grip. Then the adrenaline, the heat, took over. And for eight long, harrowing seconds, it was just man against beast. In Rafe’s world, man usually won.

I love everything I have read by this author. Her books are real and have a depth of character. They are clean without foul language or descriptive sex scenes and tell a wonderful story.

Rafe Noble was a well-known bull rider whose career was ended when his best friend, Manuel, was killed and he was injured. He became sullen and angry and while trying to destroy his life, he ran into Katherine Breckenridge, quite literally. Kat Breckenridge was a wealthy socialite who had a nonprofit that she ran in tribute to her mother's desire to do good for others. However, she was out of money and Rafe Noble ruined her last chance to get the money she needed to survive. She wanted to make him pay or at least help her to make the money she needed to make, $500,000.

In the process of convincing him that she needed him and his help, they each began to see each other differently. Was there a possible future for them or would outside forces destroy what they were beginning to build?

Kat's late mother's charity foundation is in financial trouble. She needs this fundraiser to succeed if she hopes to rescue the foundation and live up to her mother's legacy. She doesn't expect a pickup truck to crash through the hotel lobby. Rafe didn't expect to crash it, either. Now he's wrecked not only his truck and Kat's fundraiser, but also his knee and possibly his career as a professional bull rider. Rafe's solution is to retreat--to his family's ranch and his cocoon of guilt and grief over a friend's death. Kat's solution is to chase him--all the way to the ranch, demanding he help her raise the money she needs and salvage at least some of the things he's ruined lately. Neither of them is prepared to re-examine their views of God, to release their true selves under a wide Montana sky, or to fall in love.

Generally speaking, the romance genre bores me. "Will they ever see past their differences?" Sure they will. "Will her beauty inside and out be enough to heal his broken heart?" Naturally. "Will his deep, dark, dangerous past tear them apart forever?" Of course not. Fortunately, this book is not driven by cliched back-cover questions. It's driven by two people who are easy to care about. Kat is spirited and tenacious but constantly questioning her worth. Rafe is swaggering on the outside but trembling on the inside.

The book also holds quite a bit more setting and plot than the average romance novel. Readers are tossed into the rough-and-tumble world of professional bull riding, the tough and spacious world of cattle ranching. A skillful inter-weaving of Noble family backstory, a subplot love story between two endearing secondary characters, a slowly rising action plot involving money missing from Kat's foundation--I can't believe Ms. Warren crammed all this into less than 400 pages. Yet she did it, all without compromising the focus on Rafe and Kat. Every element manages to twine its way back to them.

How could this book have earned five stars? Mainly, some of the introspection could be weeded out. The romantic angst never made me shut the book, but the characters' feelings would have been more powerful if the author had relied more on their actions to show us, and less on their conflicted inner monologues spelling everything out. Also, twice while reading this book, I felt robbed of a scene I really wanted to read. First, the truck accident. This is Kat and Rafe's meeting scene, but it isn't shown. Rafe realizes he can't stop the truck; the next thing we know, Kat is reflecting on the crash. What did they say to each other when he fell out of the truck with a broken knee and she ran up to the truck irate over her broken fundraiser? I'll never know. The other scene that felt missing is nearly at the end of the book. Suffice it to say that it's a climactic moment for Rafe, and like the meeting of the protagonists, I wanted to see this in real time, not see it merely reflected on later.

On the whole, this book is an endearing, romantic delight. The author doesn't over-write but doesn't just toss words haphazardly onto the page, either. She also knows how to create a vulnerable but tough leading man. This is the first book I've read by Ms. Warren, but won't be the last. I love Rafe; I love the Silver Buckle Ranch. I love knowing the series has two more books in which I can spend some more time in the big, glorious, modern West and better get to know the Noble family.

There is absolutely NOTHING I disliked about this book! Except Bradley, but of course in the end he gets what he deserves.

Rafe is so amazing! Love him. He is sensitive and tender hearted. Sweet and determined. Family centered but feels estranged too.

Kathrine is spunky! A women who takes a stand for what she believes in!

John and Lolly I know from Nick Noble's story and I'm so glad to read more about them. I'm wondering if Lincoln Cash will show up in Stephanie's story......can't wait to find out!!!!!

If a book has Susan's name on it, I know I'm not going to be able to put it down. Whether she's writing about a missionary in Russia, Annie and Noah in Deep Haven, or the exploits of a Search and Rescue pilot in Alaska, I know I can expect mystery, intrigue, a few plot twists, a lot of romance and, of course, the message of God's redemption and restoration.

Reading Taming Rafe (book 2 in her Noble Legacy series) was no different. The story had me in its grip from the first page. Her descriptions of ranch life in Montana had me breathing the fresh air, and I felt every bone-jarring moment with Rafe in the bull-riding arena. Despite knowing that Susan's stories always have satisifying endings, I stayed up until midnight (again) to make sure that Rafe and Kat moved past their wounds and misunderstandings to get to their "happily ever after" ending.

I'll be impatiently waiting for the third book -Finding Stephanie - to come out in the fall of 2008.

This book had it all: suspense, intrigue, fun and romance! I am looking forward to Finding Stephanie, the next book in this series!
Susan's one of my favorites and this newest in the Noble Legacy Series doesn't disappoint. Her characterization is superb. Rafe Noble breathes! If you're looking for intense action, a good cowboy story, and a fantastic romance, this one's for you.
