At tonight’s bachelor auction, money’s no object…

That red-hot cowboy will be hers!

Pippa Hamilton-Hoff has come into a fortune, and her first purchase is the bachelor on the charity auction block, Diego Velasquez. No one in Texas knows she’s secretly an heiress—or that she cravesDiego. She wants this time with him, even knowing it’s temporary. Because Pippa can’t stay forever…but is she willing to leave her untamed rancher behind?


The first installment in the Cole’s Hill Bachelor series, Rancher Untamed by Katherine Garbera is a sweet yet sexy romance.

After hiding her identity for the past four years, Pippa Hamilton-Hoff is ready to return to England to claim her inheritance.  Although she is attracted to Diego Velasquez, she has turned down his requests to go out with him. Knowing she will be leaving soon, Pippa decides to bid on Diego during the annual bachelor charity auction. Will one night together be enough for Pippa and Diego?

Pippa has kept her whereabouts hidden from her father but she has always known she would return to England after her twenty-fifth birthday.  She will miss her friends but she knows it is time to claim her position in the family business.  However, as Pippa’s feeling for Diego deepen, will she move forward with her plans?

Diego loves running the family business and at thirty, he is beginning to realize he is ready to settle down. He has been interested in Pippa for quite some time and recently, he has begun to spend more time with her. Needless to say, Diego is shocked (but thrilled) when she “wins” him at the auction. Their one night together is magical, but knowing Pippa is leaving, will Diego agree to continue seeing her until her departure?

Rancher Untamed  is a low-key romance that is fast-paced and engaging. Diego and Pippa are well-rounded, three dimensional characters who are easy to like and root for.  Pippa’s expectations are sometimes a little unrealistic yet she readily accepts the consequences of her decisions. Diego is incredibly supportive of her return to England but he is uncertain whether he will fit into her new life. Katherine Garbera brings the novel to a heartwarming conclusion that will delight readers. A fantastic first installment to the Cole’s Hill Bachelor series.
