The Fight for the Cimarron Ranch Has Just Begun!
Before long, however, Heath discovers that the avalanche may have been intentionally set--and that more danger lurks ominously. Finding his own future--and a desired future with Sadie--locked up in saving the Cimarron Ranch, Heath and the Boden siblings must work together against outside forces that threaten them all.
Heath Kincaid, younger brother to the heroes in another of Ms Connealy's series, is a ranch hand on the ranch that's been in Chance Boden's family for generations. He is with Chance when they are caught in a rock slide that nearly turns deadly and is able to use the skills he learned from the medics during his time in the calvary to set Chance's badly broken leg. He saves his life and possibly the use of his leg with his quick thinking and the ranch owner is extremely grateful.
Chance is then given the job of passing on the ultimatum from Chance that they must live on and run the ranch together for one year or he will pass the ranch on to someone else whether he lives or dies. He somehow gets tangled up in the mystery of why someone is after the Boden family. Watching and interacting with the Boden family also makes him miss his own and wonder if he did the right thing striking out across the country in search of independence from his overbearing brothers.
Sadie is the little sister who has always been protected and watched over by her brothers and parents, but she won't let them leave her in the dark this time. She helps solve the mystery of who is out to harm or kill her family and in the meantime falls for Chance. Of course. It's a little corny and definitely unrealistic at times - would her overbearing brothers let her scale the side of a mountain? But there's plenty of humour and heart and I still recommend it. This author has a way of taking a slightly outrageous story and turning it into something wonderful.
