Back Cover Blurb:
Playing housekeeper means plenty of time in close quarters with the sexy cowboy. Soon, they're in each other's arms, but personal demons keep Jared from admitting he's falling in love. When he finally sees what was right in front of him, it's going to take more than a lasso to get her back into his arms where she belongs.
I fell in love with the main characters in this novel through Greenwood’s presentation of them. They were such unique yet realistic individuals fighting against both their pasts and their presents that you can’t help but appreciate them. My heart was on the line alongside these two. Watching Laurie gain her independence and belief in herself as she overcomes her past was very empowering. The contrast between the different characters was very marked but, as they say, it takes all kinds to make a village. There is someone for everyone to love and there is someone for everyone to hate. I thoroughly enjoyed this variety of characters. The close knit relationship between those at the ranch and those within the village as a whole was nice to see. The dialogue and exchanges between the characters in this novel made me laugh out loud more than once.
This is one of those stories that ends perfectly even though you never want it to end.
