Amanda Lang is a journalist who worked on an article, "Ten Things I'd Do for a Cowboy." She did all her research and even spent time at the Buchanan Wild Mustang and Burro Transition Ranch to see things first hand. She never thought that article would cause her and the Buchanans so much grief. Eighteen months have past and she is trying to set things right again. Or so she hopes. With permission from Josh Buchanan, father of Rafe Buchanan, he allows her and her crew full access again for two weeks to film a documentary telling what the Buchanan Ranch does with The Mustang Project. Josh is elated because he and his family have tried for years to get someone to notice their work and now this is the perfect opportunity for them to show off their passion for this project.
Apprehensive as can be, she knows this is the only thing she can do to set things straight, but it's going to take everything she's got to get through this assignment. You see, her trouble started when her article was first sent to print. Problem was, she wasn't the one who finished the article. She had found out it was her husband, Brian, who had teamed up with Rafe's wife, Larissa, who had finished the article she decided not to have published. They ran off together with the money from both theirs' and their spouses bank accounts and left everyone to suffer in their wrath. Amanda and Rafe practically lost everything. Rafe wanted nothing to do with Amanda and he tried several different tactics to convince her and her crew to leave, but she caught wise to him and told him that she was standing her ground and would not leave until the documentary was completed. This angered Rafe.
Ironically, as he was trying his various tactics on her, which some tactics he tried using were extremely forward of him, he started realizing that she was nothing that he thought she was. He came to realize that she was just as much a victim as he was. He was now liking her presence at the ranch and didn't want her to leave. He started being nice to her and showing that he could be a gentleman. She was now finally enjoying being there and finally felt at home. Something she hadn't felt in a long time.
Finally, as she was finishing up the documentary, they both came to some serious realizations that they had fallen in love with each other. They had both closed the chapter to their past and opened a new one together as a couple that was madly in love with each other.
I liked this story because I really felt for Amanda. She was a victim through some terrible actions her ex-husband did to her and you're heart just felt for her because of all the hardships she was still going through two years later because of it. It just goes to show you that when you aren't looking for love, it comes knocking when and where you least expect it.

Journalist, Amanda Lang, wishes she’d never written the article, “Ten Things I’d Do for a Cowboy”. Thanks to her, cowboy Rafe Buchanan lost his marriage, his bank account and nearly his ranch because it had been her husband his wife ran away with. Now, two years and a divorce later, Amanda is back on Buchanan soil to write another article, film a documentary and deliver a face-to-face apology. Rafe Buchanan wants the woman gone. The Buchanan Wild Mustang and Burro Transition Ranch is his life and, after almost losing it once, he isn’t about to allow another disaster. But when he sets out to make the beauty voluntarily leave, his tactics take an unexpected turn. Could there be more than wild horses in transition on his ranch?
