Drake Carson is the quintessential cowboy. In charge of the family ranch, he knows the realities of this life, its pleasures and heartbreaks. Lately, managing the wild stallions on his property is wearing him down. When an interfering so-called expert arrives and starts offering her opinion, Drake is wary, but he can't deny the longing - and the challenge - she stirs in him.
Luce Hale is researching how wild horses interact with ranch animals - and with ranchers. The Carson matriarch invites her to stay with the family, which guarantees frequent encounters with Drake, her ruggedly handsome and decidedly unwelcoming son. Luce and Drake are at odds from the very beginning, especially when it comes to the rogue stallion who's stealing the ranch mares. But when Drake believes Luce is in danger, that changes everything - for both of them.

This is a first for me. Normally, I reread Linda Lael Miller books, but I found the female lead in this book so loathsome I couldn't even reach the half way mark! I found NOTHING redeeming about this character. She says the male lead is arrogant, but SHE is arrogant, condescending, manipulative, deceptive, immature ... I can't figure out why ANYONE would put up with her attitude -- oh, yeah, she's PRETTY. ARGGH
Great 2nd Book in Series. Follows up on all characters and Jack Garrett is a Wonderful Narrator. Anyone who doesn't like him, just doesn't enjoy well-paced, emotion packed reading.
I especially liked the part where the primary characters first meet. It takes him literally 15 minutes to get her to tell him her name. Hilarious!
