Publisher's summary

The couple finds themselves in an age-old dilemma. A love that can’t ever blossom.

Glenna McKay thinks Spence Blackwood is a handsome, gentleman drifter, and she falls in love with him knowing he won’t be staying in town long. Spence is on a secret mission for the U.S. Marshals and needs to keep his distance from the lovely Glenna. He’s afraid the criminal case he’s trying to solve might involve her and her father.

Glenna gets herself in danger by finding evidence that the villain would kill to have. Can Spence keep her safe? Can he keep himself safe from falling in love with her?

Spence needs to be in Arkansas running his father’s business, and Glenna can’t leave her widower father in Kansas. How can they ever solve the problem?

Loved this one!

Barb Goss and Scott Bennett! These two never fail to please and they have done it again!
Barbara's delightfully sweet western romance and Scott's brilliant voices make this audiobook a real pleasure from beginning to end.
The problems that the two main characters, Glenna and Spence have to overcome are many and I could see the modern youth of today easily giving up rather than solving them, but these two characters don't and thank goodness for that.
I just loved Spence's persistence and that he wasn't ashamed that he could go to his mother to get her advice when he needed to. Yet he was strong in nature and personality and always gave the task at hand the necessary attention to complete it regardless of the obstacles.
Glenna is quite likable and she comes across as a caring person and I liked that about her.
Of course this story has a happily-ever-after and this was a very pleasing one too.
The audio voices are well fitted to each of the characters and this enriched the story even more.
I requested and listened to the audiobook and my voluntary review above is unbiased.

It was okay.

This was a sweet story. Toward the end, and after Rory had his stroke, he was constantly being referred to as stubborn which I didn't get at all. He came across as a friendly guy. The stubbornness didn't start until after his accident, even though the writing makes it sound like he'd always been stubborn. Also, I felt bad for him when he signed his ranch over to Spence, given he seemed forced and he'd been the one who wanted to started breeding horses. Now he wouldn't be able to.

Scott Bennet is one of my favorite narrators, so that's how I came across this story. He got an A+ as usual.

Overall, the story was okay, if a little boring. It just didn't hold my attention as most of these historical cowboy type stories do.

I received a free audiobook code in exchange for an honest review.

Good Mystery

Spenser was approached to go undercover at a ranch in Kansas and fell in love with the daughter. Her father may have other men for her to be courted by. And what about the extortion being demanded with the ranch owner. Good western mystery. Given audio with his rugged voice was good for my voluntary review and my honest opinion

If you’re looking for a sweet western romance with a happily ever after, this is the book for you. Find out how Glenna and Spence work through their issues and end up exactly where they’re meant to be.

Barbara Goss delivers another winner. Her ability to create likable characters and unique storylines is a true gift.

J. Scott Bennett delivers another fantastic performance. I really enjoy hearing him bring the story to life.

Wonderful!

Just wonderful! I am enjoying the audible versions of the historical westerns and of course with writer Barbara Goss at the helm, I knew it would be amazing!
Spense Blackwood helps run his father's sawmill with his brothers but is asked to become a Deputy and help the US Marshall track down the person pushing out a bunch of ranchers in a small town in Kansas. It is not something Spense ever thought about doing but he agrees. His mission is to get work on the McKay ranch, the largest in the area because the owner is suspected because nothing has happened to his ranch. Then try to court his daughter to get close to them and find out what he can.
Wow, this is a journey with so many twist and turns and as Spence gets to know Glenna McKay, Rory's daughter, he feels guilty about leading her own and almost refuses, but Glenna is really taken with him. The narrator J. Scott Bennett brought this story to life and his character voices were spot on. Mesmerized from beginning to end I can only say I cannot wait to listen to another audible by this author and narrator!

Fun Western Romance

Spence is sent in by the U.S. Marshal to investigate a ranch and a town because of complaints of families being forced off property. His investigation leads to more then he thought it would... a possible romance with a girl from a family possibly involved in the scheme. It's a clean read, well narrated and simply a really fun listen.

Sweet Story with a Wonderful Narrator!

Spence Blackwood is a US Marshal on a secret mission and he needs to find out if Glenna and her father are involved with the crime he is assigned to solve. He soon finds himself attracted to Glenna and she to him. Things get complicated, not the least fact that he is from Arkansas and will have to return once the culprit is in jail. This is a sweet, heartwarming, thoroughly enjoyable story. J. Scott Bennett is such an amazing narrator. His voices are always so well done with just the right amount of emotion to make the story entertaining and enjoyable. I received a free copy of this audiobook and have voluntarily provided an unbiased review.
