Book Description: When Meg Cole’s father dies unexpectedly, she becomes the majority shareholder of his oil company and the single inheritor of his fortune. Though Meg is soft-spoken and tenderhearted–more interested in art than in oil–she’s forced to return home to Texas and to Whispering Creek Ranch to take up the reins of her father’s empire.The last thing she has the patience or the sanity to deal with? Her father’s thoroughbred racehorse farm. She gives its manager, Bo Porter, six months to close the place down. Bo’s determined to resent the woman who’s decided to rob him of his dream. But instead of anger, Meg evokes within him a profound desire to protect. The more time he spends with her, the more he longs to overcome every obstacle that separates them–her wealth, his unworthiness, her family’s outrage–and earn the right to love her.But just when Meg begins to realize that Bo might be the one thing on the ranch worth keeping, their fragile bond is viciously broken by a force from Meg’s past. Can their love–and their belief that God can work through every circumstance–survive?
My Thoughts: Meg is a millionaire heiress and just wants to get back to her humble apartment. She isn't interested in all that money!
And Bo. Well, he's just a plain good cowboy. He wants to be angry at Meg but, well, he just can't help like her and protect her.
Bo has a dream and Meg could very well take that dream away. But as they draw closer together and get to know one another . . . it seems that they're both more alike than they thought.
Family issues . . . her family is outraged about Bo, a lowly commoner, would be with an heiress.
Meg has "something" from her past that may break the camel's back. Can love withstand this "something?"
If you love horses and all things Texas and cowboys/cowgirls then this is the book for you!
A great fun, christian, contemporary romance. As in no sickly love scenes just plain ole' good romance that makes one feel those sweet tingles!
