Peta Dixon reruns home to the Bluebell Falls Ranch after a month away in Europe with her sister, Kendall, to discover that the man who her foreman had employed to run the ranch (after he himself was injured appears) to have moved into her home! Garrett Ross is acting as ranch foreman because he cares for Hal, her foreman, not because he needs the job or doesn’t have anything better to do. Hal was important in helping turn his life around when he was a teenager and Garrett will do all he can to help him however he can.

First impressions count and overcoming them can take time and effort, even when these impression are the complete antithesis of what a person is really like. Peta and Garrett had never previously met and their initial impressions of each other certainly aren’t favourable! However, their mutual attraction and growing respect for each other might not be enough for them to give their love a chance. There are secrets, personal experiences and much more to be overcome before this couple can attain their HEA together!

This is another story set in the small town of Marietta and I’ve loved every story based there that I’ve read so far – it is a great place to escape to in a story. As usual, even though this is the sixth book in this particular series, it can easily be read as a standalone as each book has a different couple as the main focus. However, if you’ve read other novels in this or any of the other related series, it is a great opportunity to meet up with some of the characters from other stories by other authors but all centred around this endearing town and community.

I was gifted an ARC of this novel via NetGalley with no obligation or requirement to review  it. This is my honest review after reading the ARC.

Description

Headstrong cowgirl Peta Dixon has put her life on hold this Christmas to prove she can run her ranch as well as any man. There isn’t anything she can’t ride, fix, or stare down, and the only things to scare her are long hemlines and sky-high heels.

Self-made rancher Garrett Ross normally doesn’t take orders – he gives them. But when asked to step in to act as a temporary foreman on a Montana ranch over the holidays, he can’t refuse.

Yet when Garrett meets the beautiful and stubborn ranch owner, he realizes he’s signed on for a whole lot of trouble. Cynical and jaded, he has no time for feelings. And when Peta meets the man she’s to share her life with until Christmas, she discovers she no longer wants to be the person others expect her to be…

Will the rancher finally listen to his heart and admit he can’t live without a certain straight-talking cowgirl?
