Jessalyn Culpepper has been set aside “for her own good” for far too long. This has only encouraged her independent streak and stoked her stubbornness to prove herself to the overbearing and controlling men in her life. Unfortunately, the man who she most wanted to prove herself to is no longer living. Now, as part-owner of a successful ranch, Jessalyn comes home determined to take part in the life that she has missed.
Her shenanigans make her foreman and partner, Tucker Carmichael, lose patience with her time and again as he seeks to protect her from herself. What will it take to show them that they work better with each other than against? And who will Jessalyn trust with her future and her heart, herself or someone else?
This is an enjoyable romance. The dialogue between the main characters is full of sparks, romantic and otherwise; and the dialogue between Jessalyn and her aunt is contains sage advice and piercing questions. Add a bit of drama, and a few laughs and you have yet another fine novel from Kelly Eileen Hake (who is now married BTW).
It comes out April 1st 2014, so you can get it hot off the press!
