Back Cover Blurb:
She wants someone to share her life…
Rorie Campbell has a pleasant, predictable life in San Francisco, where she's seeing a pleasant, predictable man. Then, one vacation, her car breaks down on an Oregon country road, and horse rancher Clay Franklin comes to her rescue.
Rorie's life begins to change as her feelings for Clay grow, and she soon discovers that a city girl can fall in love with a country man.
But Clay has no right to return her feelings because he's engaged to another woman!
With this tale, Macomber takes readers away to enjoy the quirks of small town life and to be caught up in the blossoming of true romance. She brings her scenery to life as vividly as she does her characters and their emotions. Seeing these characters battle right & wrong, what they want vs. what they think they deserve, I found that I got to know them quite well. I loved getting to know them as they found one another.
I will admit that the foaling scene did give me a moment of a shock. If one of my horses were going through such a tough pregnancy I’d have my vet on the way out in a hurry, but beyond that, this novel captured my heart and soul. It was a brilliant, quick read that showcases Macomber’s talent in an enjoyable manner.
