Act like a man … Think like a lady. A Historical Western Romance with a Big Twist. Banished to the dusty cow town of Misery, WY for an alleged affair, Grace Hendrick wants nothing more than to get her son away from the clutches of his abusive father Bull. But if she dares return home to Chicago, Bull has promised to whisk their son out of the country and away from her for good. Besides, he’s sure she’ll resort to prostitution to survive. Grace, desperate and furious, instead concocts a daring plan to beat Bull at his own game.
Thad, the middle son of the oldest, most successful cattle baron in Wyoming, is busy building a ranch and his faith in God. One chance meeting with Grace, though, batters his focus–and his morals–like a hail storm in July. When Grace’s brother Greg is hired by a local widow, Thad figures the kid is the straightest path to Grace’s heart. But what is he thinking, playing with fire … ? Isn’t he a better man than to steal another man’s wife? Even an abused one?As friendship and love blossom, Grace and Thad will discover truths that threaten the foundations of everything they believe. But the truth will set them free … won’t it?
I purchased this book because I had heard a lot of good things about Heather and her historical novels so I thought I would give her a try.
I really enjoyed this book. It was well written with interesting characters and a plot full of surprises.
I couldn’t wait to see what would happen between Grace and Thad and I just knew her nasty old husband would show up eventually but when and how?
If you haven’t read anything by Heather and enjoy historical romance I think you will be pleasantly surprised and glad you found a new author. I highly recommend her work and hope to read more in the future.
