Sadie Higgins has a bad habit of bailing her brother out of trouble. But when he rustles a herd of cattle from the tough, honorable Kendrick brothers, it's Sadie who's in for it. Because the cowboy tracking them down is big, silent, and forbidding as hell.
Rory Kendrick is on the hunt to find out who's been stealing from him. When he stumbles upon Sadie in the woods, he barely recognizes the quiet, vulnerable beauty who has always taken his breath away. His mission shifts in an instant: He will do anything it takes to keep her safe...and make her his.
Sadie has always protected her family - no matter the price. But when Rory ropes her heart, she's forced to take a look at her life and make a dangerous choice, one that could cost - or gain - her everything.

This was an interesting surprise. The story brings out the family anguish and destruction of drug addiction. No fluff. A love story also. The relationships are believable in rural Montana ranch life.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Has action, suspense, romance, and best of all, a happily ever after. Will be looking into the other books in the series.
Crazy red head who's head over heels about family, friends and life in general!
This is a sweet story of love, loss and family. There is not a lot of graphic sex, which was nice for a change. The story revolves around two people who come together over family trouble and end up making a family of their own. The relationship moved a bit fast for me but I find that common in most romance books. There are several "other" characters in the book and Ryan eludes to what I can only assume are the spin off stories. If your in the mood for a sexy, sweet, sincere romance novel, this ones for you. Plus Coleen Mario, the narrator is amazing! Enjoy your visit to Montana, who knows you might too fall in love with a Kendrick cowboy.
I know the title is an oxymoron but it's the perfect description of this book! Sadie is a small town girl just trying to work her way slowly... ok, very slowly through college. She'd get there a lot faster if she didn't have her no account brother being a major albatross around her neck!
When she inadvertently stumbles across her brother, a part of a band of miscreants, rustling cattle from the most formidable man in town, Rory Kendricks! Her cowardly brother, who's in way over his head, literally leaves her hanging.
Rory rescues Sadie and being the noble woman she is, she vows to repay Rory for cattle stolen by her baby brother.
As feelings grow between Sadie and Rory grow, can Sadie let go of her brother to embrace her future?
While this book deals with the modern day effects of the meth epidemic, it really is a sweet old fashioned love story and I liked it!
Two points taken off for beginning scene of violence and torture. this is a running theme throughout story which is a usual girl needs saving romance. But too much violence or threat of violence for my taste. I would not recommend to my friends.
