eARC Provided by publisher through Netgalley
The heartbreak of their childhood drove the Morgan brothers far from their family’s California ranch—and one another. But as they face the wounds of the past, each feels the land calling him home . . .
Blue Morgan never thought he’d crave long days on horseback, working the cattle ranch where he grew up. But after a decade of getting shouted and shot at in the Marines, fresh air and hard work are just what he needs to settle his restless energy. Except no matter how hard he tries to focus, his mind wanders to the pretty, prickly new veterinarian instead.
There’s no denying the spark between Jenna McDonald and Blue. But with her job at risk and her own family’s expectations to wrangle, Jenna isn’t looking for another sparring partner. Blue needs her expertise on horses. And if she can help solve his mother’s disappearance, she’s willing to pitch in. But she’ll leave his ideas about how love should be scheduled to him. Jenna is tired of being told what she can’t have—and ready to reach for what she wants . . .
Blue gets out of the military at the same time he meets the lovely Jenna Mc Donald the new Veterinarian in the area. Blue and Jenna don't exactly get along at first but sparks fly. Blue and his siblings are trying to solve the mystery of what happened to their mother and their baby sister years ago. While they make minute progress on that front Blue is also struggling with his feelings for Jenna a long with a very big surprise that pops up in his life. It might be more that this Marine can handle. This is kind of a complicated story. Blue has the mystery with him and baby sister a child that shows up that may or may not be his and Jenna doesn't know where she belongs and doubts her abilities after a grumpy old rancher blames her for problems on his ranch. There are some really funny moments in this book along with some sad stuff. It's one of those books that just a joy to read. I love how Blue Morgan was named after a famous character from a old time western tv show. To find out more about that you'll have to read the book. I did not read the first book in this series but i am wishing now that i did. I think i found a new author to enjoy!
