The MacDougals are back and this is the story of Valencia MacDougal. Ever since Chantilly got married it has been up to Val to keep track of their father. Working at the local bar and coming home to ranch is all she can handle right now. Meeting Sam Turner again is not her plan of things to do. Years ago she gave her whole heart and soul to Sam Turner and like every other man he stomped it to the ground. Now he’s back and wants her in his life. Val’s main attention is all on her daddy for he is her rock. Lately she has been feeling misplaced in the world and is not sure where she belongs. Can she just up and think of herself for once?
Sam Turner is back in town and this time it is for good. The rodeo circuit was his career but things have changed. He knows Val has and always will be his woman. But convincing her is going to be hard work. Seeing her again he knows she needs him more than ever. He made promise years ago to her dad that he will always watch over her. Seeing her dealing with her father’s illness is tearing him apart. Can he be the man for her when everything is about to go downhill for her?
I love Debra Kayn and her cowboys. This next book in the MacDougal series is a new favorite for me. I love reading about the MacDougals and have waited for Val’s story to come to light. In this book Val seems to grown up yet once she meets Sam again she is a lovesick woman. Her whole heart has always been with Sam but now her dad needs her the most. All in all it was a great book and sad in some ways that will make your heart cry. Sam is the man she needs to keep her strong and face each day with a brave voice. Once again Debra Kayn has surpassed my expectations with imagination and wow hot delicious cowboy like Sam. Loved it.
Val McDougal knows all about heartbreak. First, the love of her life, Sam Turner, left to join the rodeo circuit two years ago. Now she faces a new kind of pain-her beloved father is dying. The last thing she needs is Sam's unexpected return to Pike, Montana, to take over his family's ranch, stirring up desires Val doesn't think she can handle.
Sam knows he made the biggest mistake of his life when he broke things off with Val. He's determined to win her back, this time for good. But despite the sizzling heat between them, Val keeps pulling away. He has to convince her to trust him-and her own heart-again, especially as the time draws near when she'll need him the most...
