A story worth a mountain of silver dollars

Evan Rounsevell is a second son of a marquess and destined to manage his brother’s estate for the remainder of his days. But Evan’s fascination with the American West sprouts ideas of adventure, and he’s not ready to give up on his dream of experiencing the desert firsthand.

Dannie Bolton is a strong willed cowgirl with no time or patience for the English greenhorn looking for a short stent of adventure. She sees right through his charm and accent, and she’s determined to dislike him, no matter how hardworking he is.

Living on a ranch in the middle of the desert makes avoiding each other difficult, and the more time Dannie spends with the Englishmen, the more her heart falls. With his growing love for both ranch life and his boss’s daughter, Evan begins to resent his duty to his family and need to return to England. Everything he wants is on a ranch in the Arizona territory, but does his heart’s desires outweigh the duty to his noble birth and family back home?

Oh. My. Goodness. Being my first western, I wasn’t sure what to expect from this book. Well hey howdy hey, guess what? I LOVED it. The characters are absolutely fantastic and I connected with them right from the very start. Sally really draws you into the ranch life and I felt like I was right there with the characters. Pretty sure I kept wiping invisible dust from my face along with them. Evan was so charming and I really enjoyed his sense adventure and desire to prove he could build his own life without relying on his noble background. And Dannie is the vision of courage and strength we all want to be. So SO SO good. Highly recommend this one!!!!! Looking forward to binging the rest of the series.
