Upgrading to 4 1/2 Stars ~ I first read this book in 2008, and reading it again, I find I'm as moved today as I was then. This is a love story that grips you from the first pages and carries through with it's promise of a satisfying read right to the end.

4 Stars! ~ Her horse fidgeted, but Fay Sheridan was in no hurry to find shelter, in fact the electricity in the air was welcome. Fay had hit rock bottom and she just didn't care if lightning struck her. From his pickup, Chase Rafferty watched hi
I think this story is more of a truncated bildungsroman than a romance. The author spent time detailing the grief of the heroine and how she came to terms with the death of her twin brothers in a freak accident. As a result, the heroine’s falling in love with her husband-of-convenience became almost a secondary plot and left me wishing for more encounters between the H/h.

This story is a crossover between Christy Hayes, Jennifer Probst and a shorty. Fay has lost her brothers a while ago (a year or so) and she's been living like a hermit ever since. Solitude is her blessing, and a man not leaving her alone out of concern is a curse. Chase is the curse with good intentions. He still sees the happy woman Fay has once been... And the idea he's delivered offhandedly one morning might be their undoing.

As always, Susan Fox writes a good story with nicely developed characters and fluid dialogue. The romance is well-paced and clean (with sex implied but no descriptions); although I didn't feel as connected to these characters as in her other books. I personally think it needed more sugar - I like my romance on the sweet side.
Rancher Fay Sheridan is depressed and near-suicidal after the accidental deaths of her brothers. Neighboring rancher, Chase Rafferty, her former crush, takes it upon himself to look after her and provoke her into really living again. Suggesting a merger between their ranches, Chase ends up proposing marriage, and Fay is surprised to find herself saying yes. But will she be able to give her heart and start a new family with her fear of losing her loved ones yet again? This was surprisingly sweet ...more
Chase saves Fay from the bleekest moment in her life. Fay thinks when Chase is joking when he offers her a convenient business arrange of marriage.
Will she says yes and embrace life??
