Historical Western Romance
Lanie Monroe hasn’t seen Ben since she was a child chasing frogs in the creek and seeing him again is a shock to her system. The teenage boy she idolized has grown into a hardened, and heartless man. Not much else has changed. Her parents are older, but she still chases frogs, and cattle, shoots snakes and runs the ranch like it’s her own. Trouble is, a woman isn’t allowed to inherit, and her father is determined to see her married. Ben’s arrival is her father’s answer to all of life’s problems. He wants Lanie to take off her pants and spurs and settle down into domestic bliss with a Marshal who is still grieving his dead wife, hunting a killer, and has so much pain in his eyes she can barely stand to look at him.
But fate has never been on Lanie’s side. To save the ranch she loves, marriage is the only option. Even as she says, ‘I do’, she wonders if the gorgeous cowboy vowing to love her forever will do nothing but break her heart.
