In New York Times bestselling author Brenda Jackson's novel, a Westmoreland learns that rules are meant to be broken!
Rule number one for Bailey Westmoreland: Never fall for a man who would take her away from her tight-knit family's Colorado home.
So why is she following rancher Walker Rafferty all the way to Alaska?
Bailey tells herself she owes the sexy loner an apology, and once she gets there, it's only right to stay and help him when he's injured…isn't it?
Before long, Bailey realizes home might be where you make it—if Walker is ready to take all she has to offer.
As I was building up the blog post, and getting links to the book, I realized that the fact that I wasn't overly impressed with the book is in a big minority. Oh, that happens. Of course, I jumped into a middle of a long running series, without really knowing that. So there were mentioned and updated a lot of people, whom didn't have a direct connection to the plot, and I thought might have not been necessary.
Also, I wasn't really fond of Bailey at the beginning, she is very opinionated, judgemental, and pushy. She constantly goes, both mentally and physically, where she's not welcomed, even after being told so. So she comes off like she doesn't care of others or respect them and their boundaries.
When she shows up at Walker's house in Alaska uninvited, and expects to be able to stay for a couple of days, I was shaking my head...
But Bailey and Walker do have great chemistry, and the heat between them is sizzling. The attraction pulls them into an intimacy, that they both have avoided for a long time. And Bailey kind of grew on me, or she grew up a bit, but was much easier to tolerate towards the end.
Overall an interesting look of a family, that seemed to be growing with a yet another limb to the family tree.
