Nicole “Nikki” Powell has some regrets. And with the way her story starts off you have to feel sorry for her. And the author does a great job at showing all the emotions that Nikki is feeling. Wade Knowlton has a soft heart but that doesn’t mean that he’s a pushover. The author did a great job in showing how seductive or sweet he could be. Their first real interaction will have you chuckling. Our couple’s second conversation shows what a great read this is going to be. You will have to read in order to find out who won the “tug of wills”.
This book is also a great incentive to check out Montana if you’ve never been. Another suggestion would be to check out those vacations that you could spend your time on a working ranch. But in both instances you will want to make sure to bring this book with you. There is tons of steam heat and you can’t blame it on the humidity – just sayin’. There’s graphic language and some graphic sex scenes so that you will need plenty of ice or a big fan handy. It may even spice up your love life a little.
Some authors include a character that you just seem to hate – one step above a jerk. This is one more incentive to grab your own copy of this great book – to learn more about Wade’s brother. And this author goes one step further and includes a real bitch that has you hoping that she gets what she deserves.
Victoria will give you your HEA ending and this book will also get you ready for Rough Rider that comes out in February. If I have one disappointment is that I wasn’t able to get to a ranch in order to set the tone while reading this book – but never say never. And if you would like to read a Christmas novella starring our couple, Slowly Unwrapped can be found at Victoria’s web site. (http://www.victoriavane.com/free-reads/).
