About the Book:
Inner-city veterinarian Lindsey Ward always loved visiting her grandfather’s Wyoming ranch, so it breaks her heart to have to sell it. She’ll miss the scent of hay and sagebrush under the wide-open sky, but at least the sale will help fund the clinic she’s always dreamed of.
Was to get roped by a city girl...
Ruggedly handsome foreman Shane Lockhart and his adorable son aren’t making it any easier for Lindsey to focus on what has to be done. It’s exhilarating going toe to toe with a rough, tough cowboy whose stubborn idealism matches her own, but it’s Shane’s tenderness that might tip Lindsey’s heart over the fence.

Eve Hart's Romance Review:
This book was my first by Ms. Kennedy, and I'm glad I read it. Though is started out slow, it picked up the pace and held it for the rest of the book.
I loved the chemistry between Lindsey and Shane. It went from a slow simmer to an all out explosive mix -- they had sex on the dining room table, people! That's hot!
I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED Shane's love and devotion to his son. When I read that he dropped everything at the age of 18 to chase after his baby-momma to get his son back, I nearly sobbed. How many 18 year old boys would do that? I fell in love with him in that moment.
I love Grace, she was a hoot. I didn't much like Shane's brothers, but then again, I didn't read their books, so I don't know them personally, LOL.
I appreciated the hard and realistic peek into the world of puppy mills you'll find in this book. It's a horrific practice, and I'm glad Ms. Kennedy brought it to light.
There were only a few things that bothered me about this book -- the main one being Lindsey's flightiness. She was ALL OVER THE DAMN PLACE! She couldn't make a concrete internal decision about anything, and she often made the wrong ones. I felt for Shane and the treatment he endured as a child, and I sided with him on the whole Rescue Ranch thing. I love animals, but not enough to risk my livelihood or legacy to save them all.
In all seriousness, puppy mills are a disgusting and terrible act of animal cruelty. Sadly there are thousands of them active across the US. There are incredible organizations working to rescue these puppies, their dams and sires, but the need for medical care, foster homes, and food is tremendous - these little organizations cannot afford that. So, after reading this book, I encourage you to reach out to a local puppy mill rescue organization, and ask them how you can help.
Here is information on a mill dog rescue organization my friends Richard and Theresa started years ago.
National Mill Dog Rescue
Anyway, I recommend this book to anyone who wants to read a good old fashioned heartwarming, yet sexy, cowboy romance.
