The Boden clan thought their problems had ended with the death of a dangerous enemy, but have they truly uncovered the real plot to take their New Mexico ranch? Rancher Justin Boden is now in charge. He is normally an unshakable and rugged man, but with his brother, Cole, shot and in mortal danger, even a tough man faces doubts. And it doesn’t help that Angie DuPree, the assistant to the doctor trying to save Cole, is as distracting a woman as Justin ever laid eyes on.
With her and the doc’s timely skills, Cole looks to be on the mend, and Justin and the rest of the Bodens can turn their attention back to the dangers facing
them. It’s clear now that everything that’s occurred is part of a much bigger plot that could date back to a decades-old secret. Can they uncover all the pieces before danger closes in on them, or is the threat to the ranch even bigger than any of the Bodens could imagine?
This is a fish out of water book. A citified woman from waaaaay back east (Omaha! smirk) comes west and is falling in love with a New Mexico rancher who owns (with his family) about half a million acres.
And she doesn’t know how to cook. Or gather eggs. Or ride a horse (unless it’s going really SLOW). So of course when Justin Boden meets her he is immediately smitten, at the exact same time he knows ranch life will probably kill her. And it’ll kill her NOT COUNTING the outlaws threatening to steal the Cimarron Ranch, a Mexican Land Grant that isn’t all that secure when the land under it suddenly is in America, after the Mexican American War.
Plenty of challenges ahead, until Angie faces real true danger and then we see just how tough she can be.
Can you think of ‘opposites attract’ books or movies? Here’s a few that came to mine. Pretty Woman, Titanic. Ummm…searching for the name, the one where Jennifer Lopez is a maid in a fancy hotel and she falls for a rich guy and wears a rich lady’s clothes, who is staying in the hotel?
I looked it up. Maid in Manhattan. I left the paragraph earlier so you can see my jumbled thought processes. 🙂
What about a book? Name an opposites attract book.
Mine Til Midnight by Lisa Kleypas. An over-stressed ‘Lady’ trying to hold her eccentric family together falls for a wealthy gypsy.
I read one by Nora Roberts, the hero is an immortal, the heroine is a werewolf. Trouble there.
Karen Witemeyer’s Full Steam Ahead…great, fun book.
Let’s hear some of yours.

Cole Boden’s story and the exciting conclusion to the Cimarron Legacy Series
Cole spent years back east and loved it, but he missed his family. Now he’s home and happy to be with his family except he misses Boston and the work he did back east. Is he a man who can never be happy anywhere? Or maybe he’s a man who can enjoy whatever life throws at him. Even Cole doesn’t know the answer to that. Not until Melanie Blake adjusts his thinking just a little bit.
