Wade's ranch home needs a woman's touch. Abigail's life needs a cowboy's touch.
Four years ago, rodeo celebrity Wade Ryan gave up his identity to protect his daughter. Now, settled on a ranch in Big Sky Country, he lives in obscurity, his heart guarded by a high, thick fence.
Abigail Jones isn’t sure how she went from big-city columnist to small-town nanny, but her new charge is growing on her, to say nothing of her ruggedly handsome boss. Love blossoms between Abigail and Wade--despite her better judgment. Will the secrets she brought with her to Moose Creek, Montana separate her from the cowboy who finally captured her heart?
I've heard great things about Denise Hunter's books, so when I saw two of them come up on booksneeze, I knew I couldn't pass up on the opportunity. I think it was cruel of them to make us pick between two, though!! ;)
If the rest of her books are as good as this one, I will have a new author to add to my favorites list. Cowboy books aren't usually my favorites, only because there's usually roping and branding and all. Most of you probably know, I love animals, so it's very hard for me to read all that. It wasn't too bad in this story, and I was so caught up in the characters that I was able to overlook it. I'm also usually not a huge fan of kids in my Christian romance books. I love children and children's books and all, but I usually like my romance books just single people. That probably makes me look bad now. :P BUT, for me to still love this book with two things going against it, you know it was good!! And you can't help but fall in love with Maddy!
Denise did a wonderful job with the characters. I can't think of a single one that I didn't like. I just fell in love with all of them.
I hate that I'll have to wait an entire year to read the next one in this series, but I'm glad that Denise has so many other books that I can catch up on.
*I received this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion.
