Little girls dream of marrying their prince charming and living happily ever after. Yet don’t you dare call Chantilly McDougal a little princess. No this is a cowgirl that has only one dream and that has always been to always run her daddy’s ranch. The problem is that her father doesn’t believe she is strong enough for the job. For years she has been working hard putting her love life on the back burner. She expected arguments and fights with her father but never Jack Grady. If she wasn’t so fixated on getting her ownership of the ranch he might be a great guy to let loose with. The thing is he’s making her think of more than just ranching and possibly dreaming of a life with him. Can she do it?
This is the first I have read from Debra Kayn and it won’t be the last. I love her Lace series, for this is a series that is turning out to be a favorite. There are three sisters each with a name resembling some type of lace their mother was fond off. Chantilly is not delicate like her lace perceives but is a woman feisty, strong woman and won’t let any man get to her. I loved though that with Jack she actually seems like a woman and not a woman trying to be. All in all the spunkiness in the book was there, passion and sex as well, plus romance and one woman getting her dream and cowboy all in one. Awesome job to Debra.
All Chantilly McDougal wants is to run her daddy's ranch. The only one of five sisters content to stay on the McDougal spread, Chantilly loves the land and knows the workings of the ranch better than anyone. So when Stuart McDougal hires Jack Grady as his new foreman without even consulting her, Chantilly is furious. She doesn't need the help of any cowboy, no matter what feelings the man arouses in her!
Jack Grady can understand Tilly's frustrations over working with him, but he needs the job to put his nephew through law school. Besides, he's made a promise to Stuart, and everyone knows a cowboy never goes back on his word. But when he finds himself falling for the boss's daughter, Jack is torn between being honest with Tilly, and keeping her father's secret.
