Willa, the only one who knew her father, boldly expects that everything will be hers. Tess, who has reluctantly flown in from Hollywood, just hopes to fly back with as much cash as possible - and as soon as possible. And Lily Mercy would be grateful for anything; she has learned to expect disappointment, even cruelty, from men.
But the women are shocked to learn that before any of them can inherit, they must live together on the ranch for one year. They are sisters...and strangers. Now they face challenges: to put their bitterness aside and live like family, to protect each other from danger - and to unite against an enemy who threatens to destroy all. And finally, to weave together three very different worlds in this beautiful and isolated place called Montana.

"Roberts balances the tension and sometimes gruesome action with three romances, crackling dialogue and a snappy infusion of humor." (Publishers Weekly)
"All six of the major characters are wonderfully written, with just the right touch of genuineness, warmth, and distinctiveness to make readers emotionally invest in their stories." (Library Journal)
Say something about yourself!
This story is gripping. Heartwrenching, heartbreaking and good. I like every thing about the storyline,characters. Even if it scared the stuffing outta me. NR's bad guys are terrifying. The narration was really good. However, I had to "adjust" myself to enjoy some of the voices. The narrator did a great job of givng each character their own voice. Not all are easy to listen to but she did a great job. This story scared me silly. And I did not figure it out. I would like to listen again but I am not sure I can. Scary but really good story.
Now this was truly a good book - I almosted wanted it to be a trilogy but Nora did a great job putting them all together and not doing anyone any injustice.
The story line was great - the twist totally a shock - left me with a "huh" and then I just couldn't shut it off because I had to see how it ends!
Erika Leigh is a great narrator - thank you for making this book come to life!
This has probably got to be one of my favourite Nora Roberts book,the suspense and mystery along with the interesting characters kept making me want to listen!
I really enjoyed this book. So what if it was a little bit corny, I don't care, I liked it. In fact I liked it so much that once I started listening to it I kept driving the rest of the day and all night. I liked it.
The story had some really great qualities that I almost missed due to the graphic violence described which is why I did not rate it high. I was not expecting the violence and almost did not continue the book, until I came up with the idea to fast forward through the violent scenes. I wish I was aware of the nature of the story before purchasing this book.
One of the best I've read
The story was great.
I hadn't heard this narrator before. She did a good job.
I had seen the TV movie of this book and had decided not to buy the audio book. I finally changed my mind and am really glad I did. It was well worth the price.
This book is fantastic!!! Great setting, Great characters that you really get to know and love or hate. There is a small amout of violence but nothing that completely turned my off from this great book. Well worth a credit! Enjoy!
This is a wonderful slice of life story that spans an important time in a young woman's life. Willa has depth and character that stands on its own. This is the story of her coming of age and attaining womanhood. Her love interest, Ben, is more than enough man to handle this western woman. A great listen.
Offensive that authors show rape as being something women enjoy or something that a man who supposedly loves a woman likes to do and she likes it. I'm sorry, sex in bondage with the woman saying no is rape and not lovemaking and I am totally appalled this is churned out to women as romance.
Turned me off this author.
I cannot get my head out of my fury that she wrote a rape scene as romantic to think of anything good to say about this author.
Any suggestion that forced sex with a woman's hands cuffed against her will and saying NO is something she is going to enjoy. That is totally offensive. Not only that it is dangerous as it suggests a woman should be degraded as being good. I cannot express how appalled I was by that scene strongly enough.
If it were a physical book it would have been thrown at the wall. I will be advising people NOT to buy a Nora Roberts book.
It was narrated very well. Sometimes you wondered if their wasn't more than one person speaking.
Thinking you knew who did it, then realising you didn't.
Loved it, that was most enjoyable. The different voices was amazing
When Willa thought her brother was going to die, and also when he thought he might loose Lilly.
Nora Roberts is amazing. The stories are very involved and I can say I have loved everyone of hers I have read. This one you feel for all three sisters and the men who fall for them. You knew one of them wouldn't go back, but you are still on the edge of your sit wondering. And putting that extra story in to get you even more hooked. you want to get to the end but then again you just don't !!!!
