I won this book through a giveaway on Lori Wilde's Facebook page.
A good example of the Texas-based romance genre.
Mariah, a Chicago wedding planner's assistant, loses her job then her apartment. Almost penniless, Mariah gets a call that her father has left her his Texas ranch.
Upon arriving at her ranch Mariah finds Joe in a disreputable condition (okay, he's hungover and almost naked in the horse trough). Joe informs Mariah that the ranch she is admiring isn't her inheritance. Farther along the road is Dutch's ranch - 400 acres and a broken down cabin.
Mariah wants nothing more than to return to Chicago. She learns that Joe traded the acreage for a horse and she agrees to sell the acres back to Joe. The problem: he won't have the money for two months.
A lot is gonna happen in those two months.
This novel had nicely-rounded characters. Their problems (and most characters in romances have problems) are believable and, necessary for the story, surmountable. The secondary characters were also fleshed out which isn't always the case. I enjoyed the story very much.
