Publisher's Summary

A sweeping, classic romance about the ties that bind us together - and the promises that can break us apart....

Some friends are more like family...and that's exactly how Cara Martin feels about Ryan Langston. He stood by her side through the most difficult time of her life, and there's nothing she won't do for him even now, after his death. But inheriting Ryan's share of his family's ranch in West Texas and living there for a year? Cara doesn't understand what he was thinking. Still, she cannot, will not deny Ryan's last request...even if it means sharing a roof with his brooding, arrogant older brother.

Jeth Langston doesn't trust Cara as far as he can throw her. Jeth is certain she prevented his baby brother from spending his last days at home. And he'll be damned if he lets this stranger take over the Langston family legacy, too. Whatever the cost, he's determined to drive this beautiful outsider away - no matter how intriguing he finds her.

But as the days grow longer and sunshine sweeps across the plains, Cara can't help but fall for the untamed land - and the man whose passion for it captures her, heart and soul. Can their love bloom wild and free on this Texas ranch?

Draws you in

While the majority of the book focuses on Cara's time at the ranch, the author does give a chapter or 2 to the relationship with Ryan, and this really helps set the tone and the background for the remainder of the book. As with her other books, the author really delves into the character development in a refreshing and unique manner. The narrator also does a good job, especially with Jeth's character-she gives him a slight Texan drawl that doesn't sound forced and doesn't sound like she's going unnaturally low when reading for him.
