Product Description

Two years after her husband’s death, Sarah Woodward moves her boys away from their fast paced life in suburban Atlanta to small town Hailey, Colorado. But Sarah doesn’t know a Colorado Senator has earmarked her ranch for purchase and he’ll do anything to get it. Unwilling to sell, she dismisses his continued offers and moves ahead by improving the land with the help of a sexy stranger. A.J. Dodge is a man with a past. He’s returned to his hometown ready to set down roots and make things right with his family and whatever anyone else thinks he doesn’t give a damn. Until his old friend Tommy Thornton asks a favor, a favor he can’t refuse, and Dodge becomes involved with the beautiful widow Sarah Woodward. She’s alone with her young sons on a dilapidated ranch she’s determined to get up and running with or without his help. Under pressure to deliver the Woodward ranch to a land developer with shady connections, the senator sets in motion a dangerous plot to convince Sarah to sell. Dodge will risk everything to protect Sarah and the boys including his heart.

4.0 out of 5 stars First time reading this author 7 Oct 2011
By Lainy
Format:Kindle Edition
This is my first time reading this author (thank you for sending me a copy and giving me the chance to review it Christy).

Sarah decides to move her 2 boys to their vacation home and set up life there and make a go of her ranch. Having no experience with it and her husband dead two years it is the new start she and her boys need. Help comes in the form of Dodge, a social outcast shunned by the town because of his past but, to Sarah he is a welcome help and as the story progresses something starts to stir that she thought died with her husband.

It is a well written very easy to read story with a few levels to it. On the whole it is a mother trying to do the best for her children the best she knows how but fate has other things in store for her. We see Sarah struggle with the difficulties of still dealing with her husbands death, the role of mother with 2 boys reacting to their sudden upheavel of moving and a few other relationships along the way.

It doesn't always happen but with this book I got all of my answers and most of my boxes ticked (avid readers can be so picky about what they want to see in books and sometimes I am awful for it!). The only thing I can really moan about is the skulduggery plot which is revealed and dealt with with about 15% left of the book left so I thought there was something else going to happen which again is more about my expectations and assumptions, however I really enjoyed the book and would definately read more by this author 4/5 for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read 26 April 2012
By Vixen
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A surprisingly good read, was hooked from the first page.
After losing her husband, Sarah and her 2 children move to the ranch they had bought in Colorado. A Senator has been trying to buy the ranch from her, for the water rights, and gets increasingly desperate to force her to sell.
A.J.Dodge had reluctantly agreed to help Sarah settle into the ranch. Dodge, who has a shady past, has returned to his home town.
This was a great novel; full of tears, laughs and very entertaining. Downloaded as a free book, but would happily have paid for this. Can highly recommend.

I downloaded this book mainly because it was free, so I wasn't sure what to expect. The story centres around the character of Sarah, a 30-something widow with 2 teenagers. Having lost her husband in Atlanta a couple of years before, she was finding the memories too much and decided to move her family to their holiday home in rural Colarado. There she meets A.J Dodge, a somewhat bitter local rancher who has been reluctantly volunteered to show her and her family how to set her home up as a fully working cattle ranch. Throw in a little mystery and our star crossed lovers are thrown together. Very well written and I enjoyed it so much I shall be looking out for more of the author's books. Thoroughly recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars Romantic Muck 7 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What a waste of my time. I initially thought it had the makings if a good storyline. However when the real gritty part of the story came it was totally glossed over for some unknown reason. The author should have chosen a different title as this title implies action, of which it turns out is none existent. Perhaps the author is incapable of writing about powerful mystery/action novels. This is just a mild romantic novel, nothing more, nothing less.
