Rose Lenox feels trapped on the ranch she grew up on with her seven other adopted sisters. She’s more of a tomboy than a lady and wants nothing more than to run her own cattle ranch someday. When her friend and neighbor Chance Goodman agrees that she doesn’t really belong there on her ranch Rose takes it that he means she should leave so she heads off on her own to town.
Chance has watched Rose grow up and has been in love with her for years. When he finds Rose has left he follows and finds her already in trouble in town. Chance immediately rescues Rose then take her to the sheriff to get the two of them married off so she will become his but will he be able to tame Rose’s wild ways?
Vanessa Vale really does erotica very well. There were sparks, there was steam and a whole lot of sexy action between Chance and Rose after their impromptu marriage. The historical aspect was also very pleasant to read and a bit more detail to the story than I actually expected with it jumping right into the erotic side.
However, I did often find myself wondering if the erotic and the historical quite meshed together well enough. I think each on their own would have been great but I would often forget that I was reading a historical tale when the sexual parts were taking place and somewhat vice versa.
Overall, I’d have to give this one 3.5 stars think most fans of erotica should enjoy this one.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
