Bad writing, fade to black sex scenes, cold heroine. this book was a disaster as far as I am concerned.

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. For instance, the author hinted of an incident involving the wedding rings: the heroine forgot to wear her rings and the hero ...more

Why did it lose a star is because of the fade to black sex. I wanted to have more then an overview after the fact. Come on this book had all that I would have loved but this. They decide to get married for connivence sake and he was in love with her so it was just an excuse. She has had personal tragedy and for the ranch to keep going she married him. She does not want it to be real but he had another plans and he seduces her on the wedding night. She is a virgin and falls for it. They have a ve ...more
This whole book is written in third person (of course most books are) but I felt Author gave very less importance to dialogues and conversations , which I didn't find any enduring but sulking . :/

Pass it , I don't recommend this at all .

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.

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

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.
