A headstrong woman more than meets her match in an unexpected inheritance.
When she inherits her father's sprawling Texas ranch, the Reina, Lacey Garrett is determined to run it on her own. With a long line of men waiting to wrestle control of the land away from the willful young woman, many with dreams of winning her hand as well, Lacey has her work cut out for her. But of all the difficulties Lacey foresaw, never could she imagine a last minute change in her father's will that leaves part of the Reina to another heir.
Rafe Parrish is a loner with a dark past, and no happier to be sharing control of the homestead with Lacey than she is. Angered by her arrogance, Rafe is determined to have it all: the Reina and Lacey herself. Lacey will have to fight for what is hers, or risk surrendering to Rafe's dominance, losing control of her heart in order to stay on the land she loves.

I took a chance on "Western Winds" by an author and narrator unknown to me, and without reviews...but am I glad I did. This well written book, has all the elements a listener could hope for: mystery, betrayal, secrets, intrigue, romance and passion.
This action-packed story takes place about 2 years after the Civil War ended, about 1867.
"Western Winds" is an emotionally intense story about a sprawling Texas ranch, the Reina, and the 20 year old Lacey Garrett who inherits her father's ranch. Reina is all Lacey cares about. Raised more like a son than a daughter, she has been groomed to run Reina, and Lacey is determined to run it on her own. Lacey knows she has her work cut out for herself, but of all the difficulties Lacey could for-see, she never could imagine the last minute change in her father’s will which leaves 1/2 Reina to another heir.
A stranger to Lacey, twenty-six year old Rafe Parrish, the other heir, is no happier to be sharing control of Reina with Lacey than she is of sharing it with him. Angered by her arrogance, Rafe is determined to have it all: the Reina and Lacey herself.
I don't want to be a spoiler, so I will stop here--but I think any historical romance lover will enjoy "Western Winds", whether into the western genre, or not.
I highly recommend it!
