He's the middle of the three Carson brothers and is as stubborn as they come—and he won't thank a beautiful stranger for getting in his way!
Drake Carson is the quintessential cowboy. In charge of the family ranch, he knows the realities of this life, its pleasures and heartbreaks. Lately, managing the wild stallions on his property is wearing him down. When an interfering so-called expert arrives and starts offering her opinion, Drake is wary, but he can't deny the longing—and the challenge—she stirs in him.
Luce Hale is researching how wild horses interact with ranch animals—and with ranchers. The Carson matriarch invites her to stay with the family, which guarantees frequent encounters with Drake, her ruggedly handsome and decidedly unwelcoming son. Luce and Drake are at odds from the very beginning, especially when it comes to the rogue stallion who's stealing the ranch mares. But when Drake believes Luce is in danger, that changes everything—for both of them.
I haven't read a Linda Lael Miller book in quite a long while. I decided i need to get back and read her cowboy stories again. Drake Carson is the middle Carson son and he runs the ranch. He's always been so focused on the ranching business he hasn't really taken time for finding love. Then it walks right on the his ranch and becomes a huge pain in the butt for him. Luce Hale is at the ranch to study the wild horses on the ranch. Drake isn't the most welcoming on the Carson family but that's OK. She'll go her way and he can go his. To bad it doesn't work out quite that easily. This a lovely contemporary romance but while i enjoyed it there was really no conflict. While Drake and Luce clash and the beginning they get over it quickly and things progress i was starting to wonder when there might be a shake up for them but it never came. If you just want a relaxing read with no real surprises this is the book for you. I really wanted to see some conflict. Something to bring some sizzle.
