THE AGREEMENT was on the bottom of my pile of "to read". It should have been on top. Constance O'Banyon is my idea of who to study if you want to read the best!
Anyway, about the plot, Lauren MacBride belonges to a family from hell, at least her dad and stepmom are. She has some neat brother's though. But you'll want to hear about the rancher next door. Garret Lassiter has loved Lauren since she was young. She goes away and comes back a woman and he's been faithfully waiting for her all that time. I don't want to give too much of the story away, but it is a tender and sweet love.
You will love this story.
This book is an easy read and seems to have a million story lines going on at once. Overall it is a good book and a great romance. What would you do if you loved the man next door and yet he diddnt love you back? This tender love is beautiful and the stubborness and communication barriers are like they were pulled from reality (they probabley were). If you love the west (specifically Texas) romance and an easy read, this is the book for you.
Lauren Mcbride had left the Circle M ranch at 15 and now has come home in this the third book of the Secret Fires series.
Lauren is grown now and knows what she wants! Garret had broke her heart once and she of course isn't going to let him do it again! but we all know how this goes?:))
I believe the first book in this series was my favorite:) and I have enjoyed the Idea of 4 Authors doing a series together
From the rear cover: "In the midst of the vast, windswept Texas plains stood a ranch wrested from the wilderness with blood, sweat and tears. It was the shining legacy of Thomas McBride to his five living heirs. But along with the fertile acres and heads of cattle, each would inherit a history of scandal, lies and hidden lust that threatened to burn out of control.
Lauren McBride had left the Circle M as a confused, lonely girl of fifteen. She returned a woman-beautiful, confident, certain of her own mind. And the last thing she would tolerate was a marriage of convenience, arranged by her pa to right past wrongs. Garret Lassiter had broken her heart once before. Now only a declaration of everlasting love would convince her to become his bride."
