4 1/2 Stars! ~ Claire didn't plan on following her sister's career choice, but she honestly discovered she loved teaching. Taking the job in isolated Barlow Ridge, she hoped to gain valuable experience in a rural setting to base her thesis on. She hadn't counted on her attraction to her brother-in-law Brett. Brett's a loner, purposely keeping his distance from his family because of mistakes he's made. Having Claire as a neighbour is a complication in his life that he isn't thrilled with, ...more

Well for a "Super Romance" there was not much romance. When I first started the book I thought I missed a chapter because it seem to start in the middle of a scene, weird. Also I thought the book revolved around Claire's students/classroom. There really wasn't much interaction between the H/h, I didn't feel anything between them that made me root for them. I was rooting for Brett and his relationship with Jesse and I was rooting for Claire to concur Ashley, but not to get together.

Sequel to _The Horseman's Secret_. A teacher in a remote Nevada town wants to hook up with her brother-in-law...but he's afraid of such a tenuous connection with the family he's hurt. Well-written. The focus is on the main characters and their life/job problems moreso than romance/sex, even more than typical for a Superromance.

I absolutely did not like the end. The entire story was very interesting until the end. The ending could have been more detailed instead of an epilogue 6 months later. What happened in the 6 months. One page they are fighting and the guy finally gives in and then the next page it's 6 months later and the main characters are married.

I really liked the small-town feel of this book. Character you like fall for and the kids are so to like my favorite is Jess and Brett.
