My Review

This is the first book in a new series featuring the McAllister brothers who live and work in Texas. This first book concerns mainly the oldest brother, Duncan, who works the family ranch and strives to raise enough funds to buy back the land they were forced to sell a decade ago. When the owner of that land suddenly dies maybe this will be his opportunity to get it back?

Harrison Scott is devastated when first her boyfriend and business partner runs off with their intern and most of their money. She returns to her father’s ranch and days later he dies. Unsure what to do next, she knows she has to keep the ranch viable and sets out to learn all she can about ranching and continuing everything her father has set up. . . . but can she trust Duncan to actually help her?

This is a story of betrayal, mistrust, losing confidence and new opportunities. It is a story which starts with tragedies piling up on one another and ends with a heartwarming HEA, with plenty of twists en route. It is a lovely start to a new series and I look forward to reading the stories featuring Duncan’s brothers!

Thank you to Tule Publishing for my copy of this book which I have voluntarily read and honestly reviewed.


When he sets out to regain his family’s heritage, he never expects to fall in love.

Cowboy Duncan McAllister has worked tirelessly to make the family ranch profitable enough to buy back the section of land hard times forced them to sell a decade ago. When the owner of that land unexpectedly dies, leaving the ranch to his city-based daughter, Duncan finally sees his opportunity.

After her business partner boyfriend runs off with an intern—and all their clients—CPA Harrison Scott retreats to her Daddy’s Hill Country ranch to decide her next move. Her father’s sudden death leaves her floundering—does she rebuild her professional career or carry on the ranch he loved? After rebuffing Duncan’s offer to buy her out, Harrison is forced to turn to her handsome neighbor to learn the ropes of ranching.

Duncan tells himself he’s just being neighborly, but their immediate attraction soon deepens. How can he convince her that he wants her even more than his beloved land when she’s already been betrayed once before?
