SETTLE DOWN, COWBOY!
His family's Arizona cattle ranch is just the place for Cole Dempsey to hang his hat before he heads back to the rodeo circuit. That is, until Violet Hathaway makes Cole think twice about his future when the livestock manager delivers her game-changing news: she's pregnant!
One passionate mistake could cost Vi her job at Dos Estrellas. And whatever growing feelings Cole and Violet have for each other, she knows the professional cowboy hadn't planned on settling down in Mustang Valley. When he hits the road again, he'll take her dream of them making a life together. Or is a rancher's legacy about to come full circle?
Drama and turmoil at the ranch, as Vi and Cole are trying to decide, if future together, is what they should be aiming for.
I have enjoyed the Mustang Valley stories, they are so full of life, real feelings, and true troubles. Nothing is painted as 'romance novel pink' but the characters struggle with real issues, their arguments, hurdles, and disappointments are like straight from the real life, and they have to stop, think, grow, and make compromises, before things could work out.
But not only their own life issues, Vi and Cole have to face their parents' issues as well, and when middle aged parents act like teenagers, it isn't easy to keep the ship going straight.
The bond between the brothers is slowly, but surely, growing and deepening. They are not only getting to know each other better, but learning to trust each other's as well.
Stress and pain from the past makes a mess of the present, and Vi and Cole both make mistakes, that they have to admit, correct, and ask forgiveness for.
True family drama at the ranch, that is forcing the brothers to evaluate life, focus their goals, and built new and better, brighter dreams for themselves and to those they love. Truly enjoying the series!
