Very good romance, a story of home, happiness and hardheaded men. I enjoyed it immensely.
Good reading. Mature handling of problems. Texas girl returns for her grandfather's funeral after making a sucess in NY and finds and 8 year old girl is part of her inheritance. I like Sherryl Woods' books.
This story had a lot going on and I enjoyed it all!
What's an ambitious, empire-building city girl to do when she returns to her Wyoming ranch to find an eight-year-old girl is her responsibility, and a neighbor wants her property? There's no way she can transact this business without falling in love with the sexy neighbor.
Entertaining, humorous, quick read!
I loved this book! Hard to put down but thought I would share it with others!
Megan who has a successful New York career. Her grandfather who raised her wants her to return to Wyoming, but Megan does not want to return. The only thing that bring her back is the death of her grandfather. When she returns for the funeral, she finds out that her inheritance is going to make it hard for her to return to New York.
This is the first of Sherryl Woods' books I have read, but if her others are this good, I will be reading more.
Absolutely loved this book! Couldn't put it down.
The first of a two book series...and wow, is it great!
Great book, I couldn't put it down.
Woods, in her latest contemporary romance, redeems a silly plot contrivance with energetic pacing, snappy dialogue and an appealing romantic hero. Megan O'Rourke is a Martha Stewart clone with a whirlwind, workaholic Manhattan life. When her ornery grandfather, Tex, dies, she's shocked to find that she has inherited not only his ranch but also his illegitimate eight-year-old daughter, whom she is now required to raise in Wyoming. As if it isn't difficult enough moving a burgeoning communications empire to a town called Whispering Wind, Megan discovers Tex's closest advisor was charismatic Jake Landers, the man who broke her heart years before. Megan's rigidity and snobbishness grate at times; it's difficult to like a heroine capable of having a snit over packaged coffee the morning after her beloved granddad's funeral, but Woods warmly renders Megan's bumpy transition into both romantic and maternal love, eventually winning over the reader. Jake, on the other hand is lovable right from the start, a classic good-hearted bad-boy type with a nice mixture of charm and common sense.
Megan O'Rourke's beloved grandfather had always been determined to lure her out of New York and back to the rance in Whispering Wind, Wyoming, where he had raised her. And when Megan returns for Tex's funeral, she realizes his will is going to make it impossible for her to refuse. Her "inheritance" is Tex's daughter, Tess, an eight-year-old bundle of trouble Megan had never even known existed.
Jake Landers has also come home to Whispering Wind. After leaving town years before under a cloud of suspician, he's returned to put down roots. And when he comes face-to-face with the woman who shared his troubled past, he hardly recognizes Megan. She's become a driven, stressed-out powerhouse who runs a successful entertainment empire, but who's forgotten what's really important.
He knows Megan is going to have to make some big decisions--about life and love, about where home really is. And he's only too happy to help. Because he's letting go of old grudges and beginning to recall some old dreams.
And the best one begins with Megan.
Yes, I liked it. I thought the grandfather was quite clever.
