Jake Stone isn’t happy about Hattie’s granddaughter suddenly appearing to take over her ranch after Hattie’s death, but he knows she’d want him to make her welcome. He just didn’t expect to like the stubborn redhead quite so much.

Becca Daniels has inherited a horse ranch from a grandmother she never knew. To sell it, she has to live on it for six months. Otherwise, it goes up for auction. Now it seems someone else wants it and is trying to run her off.

Now, with her horses stolen, her home invaded, and threats made against her if she doesn’t leave, Becca doesn’t know where to put her trust. What sinister plot is underway to force her hand? Worst of all, could the gorgeous cowboy who’s managed to steal her heart be behind it all?

Becca Daniels is perfectly content living in Maryland and owning a small coffee shop with her best friend and business partner. Out of the blue she receives a letter from an attorney telling her a grandmother, she never knew she had, has died and left her a horse ranch in Clifton, Montana. Her grandmother’s will stipulates that not only does she have to take possession within seven days of her grandmother’s death, but she has to live there for six months before she can sell the property. If after six months she decides to sell, she must give a man named Jacob Stone the first option to buy. She heads to Montana, somewhat reluctantly. The only good thing about the situation was it gave her the opportunity to take a break from the man she was currently seeing, but no longer really interested in.

Once Becca arrives and meets Jake, she is determined to figure out a way to keep the ranch. Sparks fly between her and Jake and she starts to rely on him and even like him. But then things start happening around the ranch. Someone steals her horses, the barn burns down and Becca can’t help but suspect Jake. Although it seems the whole town is convinced Jake isn't the culprit, Becca has her doubts. She’s almost positive he wants her land and will do anything to get it. At the same time, she finds herself wildly attracted to him and wants to believe he feels the same about her.

This book has all the elements of a great story - strong characters, drama, suspense, romance etc. Becca and Jake have amazing chemistry, even when they don’t completely trust each other. Olivia and Emma are great supporting characters. Olivia is the best friend who drops everything time and again, traveling from Maryland to Montana at a moments notice, to be there whenever Becca needs her. Emma’s story starts to develop when we are given a glimpse at her crush on Jake's brother, Gabe. It definitely draws the reader in and makes you want to know more about their history.

I enjoyed this book immensely. It was interesting and intriguing. It kept me reading late into the night in order to finish it. I had to know who was out to get Becca and whether or not she would finally give in to her feelings for Jake. I found the ending surprising. It was a twist I had not expected and I was impressed with the author's ability to keep me guessing until the end.
