One of my favorites.This is one of the books that got me hooked on romance novels.I said romance, not F---Me books.It is sweet, and in its own old fashioned way, erotic.Two men wanting the same woman.The one alpha male has loved her and been waiting for her to grow up.The other...the smug peon that thinks he's an alpha male.

City sophisticate and country girl

Jonni was both. She'd never really given up her love for country living--but now she was a fashion model in New York. Her fiance, Trevor, fitted in with her glamorous city life-style.

Gabe Stockman, however, was decidedly different. And meeting him again at her parents' ranch in Kansas, Jonni was suddenly swept with doubt and uncertainty.

It was a difficult choice: the elegant, well-mannered man she was engaged to, or the earthy, vital ranchman who felt
حارس النجوم
وعادت بعد غياب ست سنوات، النجمة التي خسرتها سماء المزرعة، والتي تألقت في سماء "سيدني" حتى باتت من ألمع نجومها، وها هي الآن في أرض طفولتها مع خطيبها الناجح دونالد بيغل الذي وافقها ليتعرف إلى أهلها لكن برايان إلموت، حارس الأرض، لم يرحب بعودتها في عينيه الآن نظرة سوداء، وفي قلبه مرارة، وفي تصرفاته عنف لا يرحم أفهمها أنها فقدت مكانها في المزرعة، وما عادت منارة لياليها فتح لها برايان نوافذ الماضي نافذة تلو أخرى، حتى كانت ليلة عاصفة ووجدت شارلوت نفسها أمام رجلين يتقاتلان حتى الموت من أجلها

You can't take the country out of the girl. Jonni is a Kansas ranch girl at heart but she has been a very successful model in New York City for the past 6 years. She thinks she's in love with a very sophisticated man and they've become engaged. Going home to Kansas to introduce her finance to her parents puts her decision to wed in jeopardy, when she see Gabe the manager of her parents ranch. A good little love story.
