Jennifer is an accountant and she is looking into Stetson’s account after he missed a payment on his farm loan. The tension between Stetson and Jennifer was very aptly dealt with Carmelita, who is the housekeeper of Stetson’s house.
Carmelita is a wonderful character and one that stays in my mind long after the book is over.
Overall, the way the two characters got together was great fun. But it seemed a little hurried.
But nonetheless, it was enjoyable all the way through.
Lovely romance.

This western cowboy romance is set in Idaho in the American west. Accountant Jennifer is sent out from the city to audit the books of farmer/rancher Stetson. He’s hostile toward her because he thinks Jenn is trying to find a way to cause him to lose his farm to the bank. It takes Stetson a while to figure out that it’s just the opposite. She actually is trying to save the farm for him. Once he figures that out, this story heats up and moves quickly from lust, to insta-love, to marriage and pregn ...more

Oh god. Do you ever read a book to the end because you honestly can't imagine how much worse it will get? This was one of those. It was a fast read, if it were longer it would have been a DNF.

Honestly, I liked the premise and I liked the potential of the characters, but it was all so shallowly executed. So much potential wasted. Both characters were kind of two dimensional and little time was spent trying to flesh them out. They know each other all of two three days then they split and there's

Emotional Roller-coaster does not begin to describe the sparks flying between these two. This story of love found when you are so not looking for it was both entertaining and engaging all five senses at the same time kinda read.

One head strong rancher with two brothers that have moved on with their own ranches but still see him as the baby of the family. (I was an unexpected late baby too) One strong minded city dwelling female with a calculator that she is not scared to use .. (Crazy ex-boyfri

I give this book 3.5 stars and since I always round up, it get last a 4.

The book started out a little slow and it took me a while to get into the story. The gist of it was Stetson was a rancher whose land is in danger of being taken by a bank because he was unable to make a payment on a loan. He had to take out the loan when his father turned ill. Cancer treatment was expensive, causing Stetson to make the choice to try and save his father's life. He couldn't afford the treatment and the bank p

This book is a rewrite of Erin Wright's original Accounting For Love. I love her books and her writing skills have grown since she wrote the original version if this book. Doing this rewrite was a great opportunity to make Accounting For Love even better.

Stetson is raises cattle and is a row crop farmer. He also has a big chip on his shoulders. Stetson inherited the farm when his father died. Stetson is the youngest of threee sons. Typically, the farm would pass to the oldest son, hus brother Wy

Great Romantic Read



This was a great romantic read. Characters are well developed and engaging. Stetson has inherited his father's farm, never one to pay attention to paper work and paying bills. He gets a letter saying they will foreclose i 31 days. The bank informs him they will be sending out an auditor to look at his books and he is not too happy about someone being in his space until he meets her. When the roads flood out and she is forced to stay overnight sparks fly between the two. Jennif

I received a free copy of this book from the author and voluntarily chose to review.
This was a great cowboy romance with interesting characters and a wonderful story. Erin Wright did a great job writing this book. I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series. If you like hot cowboys and tough girls, pick up a copy.

Five Stars.
Absolutely loved it.
Well crafted story and scenes.
The sensual scenes really flowed with the story and really worked for me.
Great work Erin Wright.
I will be purchasing more of your stories.
I acquired this story in a large collection of "small town" stories called Hometown Hope. I recommend the whole collection. This was among the best of the stories.

Terrible book. Plot line could have been great but failed dismally. The characters had no substance and were sex starved clearly. This tried to be 50 shades of cowboy and was simply awful. More sex ( and not even nicely written sex) then storyline. Wasted my last day on holiday with this sadly.

I very much enjoyed Accounting for Love. It was fast enough for keeping me immersed but leave me behind. I would enjoy more of her stories but I am limited financially to the kindle free books. Thanks for writing it.

Stetson Miller looked around at the extensive clutter in his deceased father’s office. He need to get this organized if he intended to save the farm! He had been given 31 days to bring the loan current or the bank would foreclose. Mumbling about what he would do to the low-down banker/thief who was coming, he ignored his housekeeper’s throat-clearing and finally turned around. Behind her was a woman sent by the bank, so he verbally attacked her too for her cowardly boss not coming here himself! ...more

What can I say? I have a weakness for broody cowboys with huge "chips" on their shoulders and a rocking hot bod to go with it. Stetson was so hot, rude and he knew how to get his hands dirty. Stetson is a livestock rancher who is in default on his loan. The bank's last attempt to get their money comes in the form of Lindsay, an auditor for the bank. Lindsay's job is to audit the farm's records to see if there are any stones left unturned where money is concerned. Stetson hates Lindsay's guts fro ...more

Wright created an intense romance which includes family, emotion, and an attraction that that will not be denied. Stetson can't keep his mind off the pretty little accountant in her skirt and heels; her eyes, her hair, her legs, well you get the drift. However, with preconceived ideas of city women, he's determined to overcome his attraction. Furthermore, hurts from the past color his view of Jennifer. You will love Stetson; strong, determined, and manly, his fight for his way of life will grab ...more

Accounting for Love is a very good start to the Long Valley series of books about life and love in small-town Idaho. With this new rewrite the book is even better!. Erin adds her signature humor and fun throughout the book, but there are serious subjects like the trials and tribulations of family and the baggage that ex-boyfriends and girlfriends can bring to a relationship. Erin also tackles the topic of body-shaming and how disastrous it can be to a person's self esteem and confidence in bed. ...more

Stetson and Jennifer
Jennifer is sent to audit Stetson’s farm as he’s fallen behind in payments to the bank after putting all the money he had into paying for cancer treatments for his father.
Jennifer doesn’t get the warmest of welcomes when she arrives but quickly gets to work since this is an everyday occurrence in her job.
Usually an audit takes a couple of weeks but Jennifer’s boss is on her back more than normal about getting this particular report and is p

Stetson Miller has a big problem. As the youngest Miller son he has aways been the baby of the family and his two older brothers do not respect him. Add to that, he was the only inheritor of the family farm and you have a scenario for trouble. To make things worse, even-though, Stetson is a very hard worker and knows how to run the farm, but he is no bookkeeper. He has managed to miss a very important balloon payment on a substantial loan to the bank.

Jennifer Kendall is forensic accountant. She

This author was recommended to me by another author that I really like. I thought I would give it try and I am VERY glad that I did. Mrs. Wright is an amazing author.

I really liked the character of Jennifer. She is a strong, independent and caring individual. She understands that her job could be difficult to some people and she does whatever she can to help them or at least make them understand that she isn't trying to be the bad guy. She is a woman who has a wonderful heart and truly understan

This is my review on the first part of the book. I’m really close to stopping and not finishing it. Ooh this story and that’s not entirely ooh in a good way. The first part of it frustrated me to no end. It was slow so I felt like I had been reading forever only to find out that I was only a quarter of the way in. I liked Stetson but did the author have to make him dumb. I mean really how very naive of him to think that he could run any business and not do paperwork. He repeatedly kept saying th ...more

This is a quaint love story with a lot going on. It seems that Stetson is just getting over the loss of his father, and after paying his medical bills, he hasn't been able to make the balloon payment on the farm/ranch. So the bank sends an accountant to do his books. Stetson is not happy about the bank sending someone in because he is afraid he is going to lose his home. Jennifer is the accountant that the bank sends. Her boss is a total jerk and over the line, I thought HR should have been put ...more

Accounting for Love by Erin Wright was part of the Kiss Me Cowboy Summer Box Set and was a new author for me but you can bet I will be reading more of her books! This is also the 1st book in the Long Valley series.

Stetson Miller inherits his father’s farm but as he works in the fields to grow the crops to pay the bills he really doesn’t pay much attention to the finances until he receives notification that they bank is threatening to foreclose on the ranch…the bank sends an auditor to the ranch
