Lacy Denvers has lost her job, and lost her way. All she wants to do now is get her career back on track and find some stability again, but first, she wants to mark something off her bucket list: She wants to learn to ride a horse. Her dream vacation to the Crawley Creek Cattle Ranch turns into a lesson in patience when the North Dakota winter proves unpredictable as ever. Wrapped in a cocoon of snow, Lacy finds the ranch to be a hidden treasure trove of cowboy eye candy, and her mouth is watering even as her brain is telling her to run.
After a devastating tragedy, a young Drannon Russo ended up fostering with the Crawley family, and found a home. He’s only moved away once and had to lean on family for support when his dreams were shattered. Being a cowboy on a ranch is a pretty lonely existence. When a beautiful redhead shows up looking for a fresh start he’s determined to give them both what they want.
Will this vacation into the heart of cattle country turn out to be a mistake, or will Lacy and Drannon find their future in each other?
Warning: Explicit romance
Drannon and the rest of his brothers obviously haven't had the best of starts but they haven't turned into a mess, for the most part. They still have their issues but so does everyone else. I loved that the boys were close even though they aren't blood related.
It's beautiful to see Lacy and Drannon start falling for one another and starting to figure things out. Especially because Lacy starts to figure out what exactly she would like to do.
There were so many different emotions that one felt as we read through the book. Lori King has created an amazing series and I can't wait to see more of these cowboys!
Cowboys don’t cry, but Roman “Romeo” Freemont certainly has enough tragic history to spend his days teary-eyed. Instead he’s turned to women and liquor in an effort to soothe his aches and pains, but when a petite brunette with a feisty temper comes crashing into his world, he realizes what he’s been missing.
Francesca “Franki” Scott has walked through fire herself. Nowadays she just isn’t a people person, and she’s definitely not interested in a wannabe playboy ranch owner either. She has a mission and it could mean life or death for someone close to her if she gets distracted.
Closing the gap between these two wounded souls could mean surviving yet another tragedy. Will their determination to hide their pain from themselves be their downfall, or will they come through this rough ride together?
Warning: Explicit Romance
This town is certainly one that I would like to live in. And when we learn about Franki's situation then it is certainly a bit less appealing but only because something terrible like this happened. I'm not going to say anything about the outcome of that situation because spoilers.
It was certainly marvelous to see Romeo change, and become different from the person he was turning into especially because of the fact that he had his brothers worrying about him. I love the Crawley Creek brothers and their interactions. It's so obvious that they're family.
Roman's thoughts as he helped Franki were certainly sad and you came to understand better about how his mind worked and why it turned to alcohol to deal with losing Abraham.
At times this book was difficult to read if only because of the pain both characters were experiencing but that didn't make the book any less worth reading in my opinion. Lori King certainly knows how to write a beautiful romance story.
