With a bundle of letters in a boot box, Emily Cooper doesn’t know what to expect when she arrives on Clarice Barton’s Ravenna, Texas, ranch. Clarice is stunned to meet the great granddaughter of a man she hadn’t heard from in decades and insists that Emily stay on the ranch to tell her all about him.

Greg Adams isn’t thrilled with the idea of a strange, if beautiful, woman in his grandmother’s company. But when this stubborn cowboy sets out to uncover her lies, he finds the truth staring him in the face: it’s not an explanation he wants, it’s just her.

Hot times under the stars…peppered with a little mis-communication.

I love a good Carolyn Brown book and this one is no miss. It’s a hit. The writing is crisp and full of emotion. The characters are charismatic and have issues which make them easy to relate to.

Emily wants to help her dying grandfather so she goes to the woman he loves. The letters he’s been sending never quite made it to Clarice. I loved this story arc. The letters that never made it. Very romantic. I also liked this plot device to get Emily and Greg, the grandson of Clarice, together.

The great thing about this story is the sparks. I definitely felt the sparks between Clarice and her soldier. Those sparks continue with Greg and Emily. They don’t think they should be together, but karma knows otherwise. I liked seeing them spar. They played off each other quite well and made me feel like I was right there in the room with them.

The heat in this book  is fantastic. I felt their steam and loved reading about them working through their issues. I can’t say how things work out, but it’s definitely worth the read.
