Really enjoyed reading this book. It is the 2nd book of 3 about the family in the story.
Great love story written around Christmas time!
Aside from the ick factor of the two protagonists being related by marriage (Caitlyn is the widow of Clint's brother), the book doesn't offer much in the way of character development. The author makes a point of slowing down and smelling the roses as Cait tries to get Clint to realize there's a world beyond his beloved ranch--but the sermonizing gets in the way. Cait comes across as unsympathetic at first, but you're eventually won over by her resilient attitude.
Clint McMahn liked life the way it was - peaceful and woman free. So when Cait McMahn wanted to start a riding school on "his ranch", he wasn't keen on the idea. He didn't like Cait interfering - with a school or the gorgeous smile he couildn't get off his mind ...or off his land.
Before long, Clint found himself involved in Cait's cockeyed idea himself - and in over his head. Because despite his growing feelings for the stubborn beauty, he knew the ranch was all he'd ever needed and all he ever would. Unless a tough-as-nails-but-soft-underneath riding instructor could teach him there was more in store for him....
