A pretty good book. I loved the characters and their personalities. The plot was strong and this was definitely written well. I did get aggravated at the characters, but in a good way. There was strength, humbleness, some touching moments, sweetness, some great turn-of-events, some misunderstandings but a great way to get through them, good side characters and a great HEA. I really liked this book. It would be the relaxing, snuggle/cuddle kind of book. Good for anytime and anywhere. It draws you ...more
The weakest that I have read by this author,so far.

Sweet and clean,but just too unbelievable and so much repetition.The heroine told the hero so many times how wonderful,kind,generous he was,and how undeserving she was,that it became tedious and eye-rolling to read!

Very good book. When Geena showed up at Colt's ranch to interview for the housekeeper's position, he wasn't going to take her. She told him that she had just been released from prison and he'd had a bad experience hiring an ex-con before. Then he found out she'd been released and exonerated, and felt bad so he hired her anyway. Geena was happy to have the job and was determined to do a fantastic job. She also wanted to find the woman her brother had been living with before he died, so she could ...more

If one has to have a book to read while with a parent is in a hospital emergency room, this will do. It could have used a little more editing. It felt like some of the plot was missing. But it passed the time while we waited for test results-Dad had a seizure & everything checked out after 5 hours- and Harlequin is the perfect book to keep one from getting frustrated with the delay.

OK, so I'm not even gonna rate this b/c I didn't finish it. This was just NOT a Lenore type of book. I have NO idea how it continues, but at 50 pages in it was just too...sweet and boring and perfunctory. FOR ME. Too bad the exerpt I read didn't give me that clue, but oh well...
