Before taking her vows at a convent to become a young novice, Dominica Kirkland is summoned to an isolated Idaho ranch by Toma Colfax, a friend of her deceased father. Alone and naive as to the ways of the world, Dominica soon finds herself overwhelmed, and reluctantly accepts the help of Luke, a ruggedly handsome cowboy. Drawn in by her beauty and her innocence, Luke makes it clear that he’s interested in Dominica, no matter what vows she’s considering.
But at Toma Colfax’s ranch await more questions than answers for Dominica. Toma claims no knowledge of the letter that called Dominica to the untamed wilderness. Slowly long-kept secrets are revealed, about Dominica’s family, about Toma Colfax, and about Luke. Dominica must make painful choices, to return to the safety of the convent and live a life of solitude, or risk everything, including her heart, to stay with Luke.

Never heard of her but she was an awesome narrator. Whew, Lukes voice was soooo sexy. Amazing!!
I wrote a review on Amazon earlier to say I was not finishing this book but I decided to soldier-on and I'm so glad I did. I was so bothered by the beginning when all it talked about was the lust they felt for each other. Every page seemed to be filled with it. But once they weren't alone, when they reached the ranch, all hell broke loose. Whew, I've never read about so much hate that Amanda and Matt had for Luke, their own son/brother.The only thing I wish the author would have done was write an epilogue that said what happened to Amanda. I mean, she did plan 3 murders with Matt but the book ended with nothing happening to her. Now, as to the sex! It was spectacular.As to the other review on Amazon that said this was predictable? Believe me, there was nothing predictable about this book.
