The story is about a big city girl who takes a job on an Oklahoma ranch. She meets and gets temporarily stranded with loner Curt Hayden, the foreman, and a man with a past that has made him wary of love.
"Ms. Barker strikes gold with this sensitive, yet snappy romance featuring a most memorable pair of lovers." (Romantic Times Bookclub)
"A delightful read. Ms. Barker's story is exceptionally well written, and her characters are both fun, and deeply moving. The white-knuckle ending of the audiobook will leave you on the edge of your seat, until you reach the last page and grab the tissue box, and say, 'Damn, That was a great book' I look forward to seeing more novels by this very talented author. (Paperback Forum)
This was a great story! Maggie and Curt were an interesting couple.The city girl is having to become a country girl. Although her fear of spiders and mice showed the first night when she was stranded at his place, she proves herself intelligent and helpful in all circumstances. Maggie was a really strong female character.
Even though she wasn't his type and he didn't feel like he had anything to give her, Curt definitely was protective and took care of her. They had lots of chemistry right from the start I loved that he picked her up and put her in his bed when it was cold that first night and the morning after when they woke up!. A nice hot start!
There's as much heart in this book as there is heat. A great read by Becky Barker!
The narration by Alexandra G. Haag was very good. Her character voices were outstanding and the overall performance was the same.
Any additional comments?
This is a great book written by Becky Barker and narrated by Alexandra Haag. Maggie Malone needs a change in her life so she has traveled to Oklahoma in search of that change. The secretarial position on the McCain ranch fits the bill perfectly. Curt Hayden is the sexy ranch foreman at the McCain ranch.
The narrator Alexandra Haag, did a wonderful job, and was very easy to listen too. She did a great job with the different characters and their voices.
This book has a great story; if you are looking for a great romance,then you need to get this book. I am looking forward to the next book by this author. Once I started listening to this book, I didn’t want to stop until the end.
