A great western romance! What a way to blend two characters into a loving relationship, even through an overwhelming circumstance...Even if you aren't into "westerns" you'll enjoy the overlying story of two lost lovers making up and finding themselves anew. A great read from start to end and I give it 5 stars!
Four years ago rugged Carson Blackridge had branded Lara with his masculine touch, then crushed her innocent heart. Utterly humiliated, she\'d fled the Rocking B forever. Reluctantly, she was returning, but strictly to research the history of the ranch-not to relive her past with Carson. Once, jealous rage had driven Carson to cruelly reject gently trusting Lara Chandler. Now he needed her back on the ranch...and wanted her back in his arms. He would stop at nothing to rekindle her passion, use any trick to recapture her love. But if she discovered the depth of his deception, would she once more vanish like the wild, sweet wind?
At the end of this story, I wondered, Is that all there is? I did not find this to be a satisfying story; I scan-read through much of this book. Generally, I found most of the characters to be uninteresting; some were downright hateful (even if they were dead).
One of the problems I had with this story centers around Lara and Carsons ages. At the time Lara fell in love with Carson, she was 18 and he was 27. As a parent, if my daughter came home with a 27 year-old man, Id be horrified. At that pivotal time in their lives, there were just too many years between them. Now, 4 years later, that age difference is not so significant.
Anyway, I thought the story was boring and I just didnt care about the characters.
