I enjoyed this book, intesesting, moved at a good pace. Was a good love story however it did not have the depth I prefer in a Historical Romance.
He hadn't wanted to like a city girl--much less love one, but Christian Prescott foun himself on the horns of a dilemma: his yearning for Lynnette Sterling, his brother's intended bride. But she had corralled his heart and spurred him to a decision that would change his life forever...!
Lynnette's eyes were finally opened when she met her future brother-in-law. For she knew in a prairie heartbeat that Christian Prescott was the embodiment of the rugged West--and the unattainable realization of her every dream of love!
Lynnette Sterling, at the death of her father, has lost everything. During the turmoil of those final days, she meets and agrees to marry Arlen Prescott, a politician-in-the-making. He invites Lynette to spend the summer at his family's ranch in Kansas.
It doesn't take long after her arrival for Lynette to realize she's agreed to marry the wrong brother. Christian Prescott is the brother who stayed on the ranch, while the other made a name for himself in Kansas. Lynette realizes that Christian is the kind of man that heroes are made of; she doesn't know how to change things.
This is a fairly simple piece of historical fiction. There's more action in the main characters' minds than going on verbally. This is a rather average story.
