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)
i think an author of Nora Roberts calibre should be able to create suspense and even horror without the gruesome details of tortured cats, calfs, steers - and people. The story starts interestingly enough and could have been a really good one without all that psychotic brutality described in loving detail.
I wonder what kind of person writes such a book, such sickening detail of torture. I don't think I would want to meet her.
She's probably a good narrator but should maybe confine herself to books with fewer people. She had to resort to irritatingly screechy voices for some of the characters.
Cut out completely ? None. it's a good plot with a surprising twist.
Disturbing. Certainly not for the faint of heart and it surprised me to find that I seem to be one of them.
great character sketches, facinating discriptions. Wish I had read the reviews prior to buying, too greusome for me. Too bad my Ipod could not fast foward in the right places. Stopped my listening, waste of credit.
The recording was awful it was echoing and I was already suffering with stomach problems and couldn't sleep.
My husband and I bought this book for our road trip to Montana. What a mistake. Ms. Roberts doesn't complete one paragraph without spewing 3 different expletives, while my 4 year old daughter sat in the back seat. We couldn't have shut the book off soon enough.
I m retired, the mother of 4, grandmother of 7 ad great grandmother of 8. . I enjoy listing to books, traveling and working with my photos.
I would have stopped reading this book had the story line not been so interesting. My Lord Juses' name was taken in vain often; I just shuttered. The profanity could have been omitted as well as the detailed sexual actions. I will be very careful when selecting Nora Roberts books. The Harsh, profane,and sexual language caused me to rate this book with 1 star.
