Big Sky Country by Linda Lael Miller has great character building, passion, and drama to keep you intrigued to the very end. I found this contemporary romance a refreshing change from the dark romances of late. You are easily drawn to the characters and the conflicts within their lives. Slade and Joslyn have always lived on the opposite side of money and now years later their lives have molded them into people that will endear them to your heart. Within the community of characters are strong personalities--some clash and some are woven into a stirring romance that will melt your heart. It has been a while since I have read Ms. Miller and I had forgotten how well she writes stories that pull you into the characters’ lives full of emotions with heart-wrenching tenderness that stays with you long after the last page. Enjoy!
The "First Lady of the West," #1 New York Times bestselling author Linda Lael Miller is back with a new series about Parable, Montana-where love awaits.
The illegitimate son of a wealthy rancher, Sheriff Slade Barlow grew up in a trailer hitched to the Curly-Burly hair salon his mother runs. He was never acknowledged by his father-until now. Suddenly, Slade has inherited half of Whisper Creek Ranch, one of the most prosperous in Parable, Montana. That doesn't sit well with his half brother, Hutch, who grew up with all the rights of a Carmody. Including the affections of Joslyn Kirk, homecoming queen, rodeo queen, beauty queen-whom Slade has never forgotten.
But Joslyn is barely holding her head up these days as she works to pay back everyone her crooked stepfather cheated. With a town to protect-plus a rebellious teenage stepdaughter-Slade has his hands full. But someone has to convince Joslyn that she's responsible only for her own actions. Such as her effect on this lawman's guarded heart.
