From this “fabulous storyteller” (Carolyn Brown, New York Times bestselling author) comes the first book in an all-new western romance series.

Delaney Harper thought she’d seen the last of Meadow Valley after her deadbeat husband left her brokenhearted and, well, just flat broke. But news that her ex sold their land means she’s heading back to reclaim her share of the property and the dreams she was forced to put on hold. Only one thing stands in her way now: a smoking hot cowboy.

Sam Callahan is too busy trying to keep his new guest ranch afloat to spend any time on serious relationships-at least, that’s what he tells himself. But when a gorgeous blonde shows up insisting she owns half his property, Sam quickly realizes he’s got bigger problems than Delaney’s claim on the land—she could also claim his heart.

Includes the bonus novel The Toughest Cowboy in Texas by New York Times bestselling author Carolyn Brown!

My Review

This was a fun little romance!  I have enjoyed what I have read from this author in the past so I was pretty excited to give this book a try.  I enjoyed the book from the very start and great time seeing how everything developed.  I am so glad that I decided to give this book a try.

Sam and his partners are still getting the ranch they run off the ground.  The business is off to a good start but they do hope that things pick up a bit.  Sam doesn’t need any problems so when Delaney shows up claiming to own half of the land the ranch is built on, he isn’t thrilled about it.   Delaney isn’t looking for anything that isn’t rightfully hers.  Sam was only able to buy the land because Delaney’s ex-husband forged her signature on the deed.  Unfortunately, the town is closed for the week and Delaney’s car needs some repairs so they will have a week to spend together before anything can be settled.

I liked Delaney and Sam.  Both of these characters were really good people and neither wanted to hurt the other.  They had fantastic chemistry from the start and I thought that it just got stronger as the book progressed.  I really thought that these two fit together perfectly and their relationship just felt right.  They were both dealing with some bigger issues that were a bit of an obstacle and I enjoyed watching them work through their issues.

I would recommend this book to others.  I thought that this was a really well-done romance filled with wonderful characters and a bit of excitement. I can’t wait to read more of this delightful series!

I received a review copy of this book from Forever Yours (Grand Central Publishing).

  1. Sounds like a good read and, like Lily B, it's been a while since I read a cowboy romance as well, so I appreciate this suggestion 🙂

  2. Surprising that neither one is angry about the situation but that is good. I don't think I get why the town would be closed for a week. Otherwise, a cowboy romance is always fun.
