I don t know if it s just me, but this was a DOWNER The h comes back to the olde ranch homestead, almost crippled and dumped by her bridegroom, only to find out that the one surrogate father figure she ever loved and trusted died six months ago The asshole hero tells her to go find him in the graveyard She thinks the dad is merely visiting his first wife s grave, but instead is faced with his gravestone It doesn t really lighten up from there The H still sneers and is suspicious His SIL is not o [...]
Susan Fox specializes in unfairly maligned heroines and the alpha heroes who judge them, but are still attracted to them This heroine is only unfairly maligned for causing the death of a beautiful horse when she was 16 and that she was a brat growing up The hero has never forgotten her innocent crush on him nor her silly mother who was briefly married to his saintly father The hero, now a widower himself with a young boy, is disturbed when the heroine who was in a terrible car accident leaving h [...]
WOW Absolutely wonderful read,liked the story n way it grips us till the end but my only complain is that the heroin Veronica was shown to be very weak taking all the taunts,insults n humiliation from hero Cole n other characters she hardly stands for herselfTo Cole, Veronica was still the undisciplined child of the woman who d left his father.Cole was very wrong in still judging n acting rude towards Veronica for her rebellious behavious in her teens but he slowly realises how his actions have [...]
I m not quite sure how to rate this book I have mixed emotions about it Maybe, 3.5 stars On the positive side It is very well written I liked that the hero truly did love his first wife and that it took him ages to get over her It made for a realistic portrayal of life Heroine was vulnerable, yet she wasn t annoying and could stand up for herself when necessary Story was engaging and kept me very entertained Loved the secondary characters I thought they added much dimension to the story Loved t [...]
5 Stars From the first book I ve ever read by Susan Fox, I became a huge fan and quickly started to collect her entire book list I was shocked when I checked my reading journal, to discover the last time I read one of her books was 2008 I ve read 12 of Ms Fox s books, and not a one earned less than 4 stars from me Veronica was a rebellious teenager when her mother married Hank Chapman But her new stepfather had seen how love starved she was and he patiently gave her guidance, discipline and affe [...]
rating 4.25Okay, so people who ve been following my reviews AgentS, are you there know that I don t like the formulatic martyred heroines who give up everything and are boo hooing all over the place To be honest, I know people who do sacrifice stuff for others but not all the time And not for everyone The heroine in this book was a do gooder and somewhat self sacrificing but amazingly, I wasn t irritated by it because she possessed another trait which I value quite highly.empathy Also, since a c [...]
ate my review darnit Anyway if you re in the mood for a fairly angsty book with an emotionally and physically fragile heroine, this is the story for you Well done with believable pacing POV from both the hero and the heroine who had once been step siblings The POV from the hero s POV did dry up in the later part of the book which is really where I took away the star No fair showing us what he is thinking when he still despises her but not let us into his thoughts as he falls in love.Recommended [...]
I read this book a million years ago, and I still remember how heartwrenching it was This is a beautifully written romance.
I Loved It It s been 8 years since Veronica came back to his stepfather s ranch But when she arrived, she found that her stepfather s passed away few months earlier Devastated, Veronica planned to fly back to city But Cole, her stepbrother who in charge now, ask her to cook for him Despite his bluntness and roughness, Veronica s been in love with him since she was sixteen Cole always hated her, or is he not But if he hated her, why he kissed her This book is old yet the storyline s surprisingly [...]
1 Pathetic, spineless heroine check2 Rude, obnoxious, annoying child check3 Gag worthy cover where the heroine looks like a 45 year old soccer mom when she s supposed to be 24 years old check4 No sex checkAnd then there was the shitty, ridiculous plot The heroine s husband divorces her the day after their wedding because she got injured in a car crash while he was drunk driving.The hero doesn t recognize the one dimensional evil character for what she is Constantly sabotaging the heroine and cau [...]
Wow could they find something else to blame on herybe global warming Crazy how some guys are so blind when they want to be and the fact that no one told her about her inheritance was criminal I mean it s against the law jerkoff They really needed to do some research on this one I like it however and the evil other woman should be in jail hell no she needs to be placed in a loonie bin What was her messed up deal It was her sisters hubby for Christ sake Gross Never mind her actions almost ended up [...]
Rating 3.5 starsNot a bad read, about a heroine recovering from emotional physical scars the hero her stepbrother who didn t like her Eight years later he seems to see the changed her.
Sweet older romance Favors plot over romantic action, but still a nice story I didn t feel like their animosity in the past was explained very well usually the explanation in these stories is that the hero was in love with the heroine but had to discourage her crush because she was way too young, but it wasn t told that way in this one I also wasn t crazy about the dead wife that he loved yes, it s realistic, but in fantasyland I d rather think he d never been in love with anyone until the heroi [...]

A d tente, cowboy style.Main characters are stepsiblings widower with a young son divorcee still reeling from both physical injuries sustained from a car wreck right after her wedding as well as abandonment issues stemming from the annulment of her marriage Like Susan Fox s Black Sheep, the beginning sucks you right into old but unresolved heartaches If, like in the movies, you split screen the hero directing the heroine to visit the stepfather at the graveyard and the heroine misinterpreting th [...]
Ahhhh that was my breath of relief I loved this book I loved the heroine, I loved the H and I loved the emotions this book made me feel It hurt me to read about all this heroine has went through and then for the H to be so abrupt with her LOVE it I woke up really early this morning and couldn t get back to sleep so I decided to start the book Start was supposed to be the key word there, instead I devoured it within two hours When I first heard about the book I was bummed that it wasn t in e book [...]
I didn t like this heroine as much as Willa from The Black Sheep Although both heroines are excessively forgiving, Veronica s willingness to excuse certain parties was, to me, unrealistic view spoiler Veronica felt a surge of pity for Jessie Veronica s eyes shifted from Jessie to Helen then to Cole Neither Helen nor Cole seemed to be feeling a particle of the pity she felt for the misguided Jessica Someone should nominate this woman for sainthood Either that or lock her up in a tower and assign [...]
Read many a moons ago Was a great book.
