Pepper Bourne has big plans for her stepdaddy’s Arizona ranch. The physician’s assistant dreams of opening a community garden for Angel Crossing’s neediest. The only thing standing in her way is the tall, rugged cowboy who just inherited the property!

Former bull rider AJ McCreary gave up the rodeo to raise his baby girl, and selling the ranch is the only way he can support her now. While Pepper’s claim on the property may be uncertain, there’s no denying her claim on AJ’s heart. He’s ready to become a family man. But can he prove it to the one woman who makes his family complete?

Cowboys and babies, that was what sold me on this one right away.

I loved EllaJayne, who always seems to do a disappearing act. She may be the smallest character in this story but she’s also pivotal. Pepper and AJ both think they’re fighting for the same thing. The Property. In reality what they both want is love, family and belonging. It’ll take a pint sized princess to show them the way.

How they go from fighting with each other to fighting for each other was the highlight of this story for me.

The ending and the climax was great, I wasn’t ready for the story to end.

This is the fourth book in the Angel Crossing series. The characters and how they were developed in the book was wonderful. The author did a fantastic job of portraying a small town with all its quirks.

It felt as if the author was building up to something.  I felt as if more was going to happen and then it didn’t. Not saying that any part of it was bad just that there was an intensity that seemed to be leading up to something big taking place in their lives, like maybe the mother coming back to claim EllaJayne or a fire or something. Having said that, the ending is perfectly romantic and satisfying. Overall, I’m glad that I read this book and I look forward to returning to Angel Crossing again.
