A high tempo tale of falling in love and new beginnings, of family drama, the past catching up to mess the present when a one-time blessing turns into a hindrance to happiness in the future.
When everything happens at once and your emotions are high and intense - especially when children are involved - things have a chance to turn a bit horrendously comical. And Delores Fossen surely knows how to create those scenes where you do not know if you laugh until you have tears in your eyes or just cry cause all the feels, but at least you swoon cause all the hot cowboys.
I enjoyed this story immensely, it pulled me into the swirling world of intriguing characters, insane happenings, and profound emotions. I adored Austin Jameson and his twin girls, he is such a great father, caring, fun, considerate, and protective. I loved that to build a new relationship with McCall Dalton there was no need to make his former wife and his love for her any less than it was (often happens in romance novels). But it was celebrated, her memory was cherished, and the adorable girls told stories about her.
So much happens in a short time, it seems like a tornado of events toss everything up in the air and changes everyone's lives in one swift sweep. And as the ending came a bit abruptly, I am excited to know this book was part of a series, and more mayhem and romance are to come. So hold on to your stetsons cause there's a new western romance series to be followed, and knowing Fossen's style, it is going to be one with passion, sensation, drama, and humor.
