Can an ambitious oil executive rope a wounded cowboy’s heart?
Environmental Engineer Darby Brewster needs Kester Ranch to gain the coveted position of Vice President of Brewster Oil, and her father’s approval. She’s worked hard to get where she is, and she refuses to allow a cowboy, as good looking as he is, or the cute boy that comes with him, to derail her climb up the corporate ladder. But a woman could dream about having it all, couldn’t she?
Rancher Fargo Kester doesn’t appreciate Darby’s repeated attempts to persuade his family to allow an oil drilling rig on their property, but that doesn’t stop him from speculating on her other…qualities. Like how much his son adores her, or how well she blends into life on the ranch. He doesn’t have time for romance, though, not since his dad died three months ago leaving him responsible for his family’s livelihood. Nor the inclination. Jayce’s mother destroyed all trace of hope for that.
Can Fargo convince Darby that the ranch needs her more than a rusty old drill? That he needs her? Could she embrace a quiet life on the ranch and fuse her love for the cowboy with the career of her dreams?
“The first contemporary romance story I’ve read that was sexy without being dirty. Loved the characters and story line. A great story of healing deep wounds and finding true love, bringing family together, and mending relationships. It’ll keep your interest to the very last page.” ~Amazon Reviewer

Her two daughters, from a previous relationship, are now both adult. Jo, ambitious and independent, is pursuing a career as a barrister. Jo’s younger sister is very different. Shelley, just 20, sweet natured, trusting and innocent, still lives at home and works at a local animal clinic.
They are a normal, happy family – and then Shelley meets Sam on the street and everything changes.
Martha struggles to accept Shelley’s choice of boyfriend as, with increasing anger, she witnesses the erosion of all Shelley’s values under Sam’s influence.
When Martha’s efforts to persuade Shelley to give Sam up fail, she decides on a more direct approach. The consequences of her actions are devastating for everyone and change the course of Martha’s life forever.
“After I’d gone up to bed that night, leaving Gabe amidst the carnage I had created in the living room, I formulated my plan. But it was pure chance that I met Sam on Putney Bridge some three weeks later and I went ahead with it.”
