Product Description

She came to Montana looking for answers...and found forever.

When Gracie Donnelly, a school teacher from New Zealand, arrives on a Montana cattle ranch, she has more on her mind than mending fences and feeding chickens. She's secretly searching for her father and answers to questions that could destroy a family.

Just one look at the fiery five-foot-one redhead and Trent McKenzie knows Gracie is going to be trouble. Ever since the failure of his first marriage, he promised never to listen to his heart again. Especially when his heart is saying he's falling in love - and the one thing Gracie's searching for is the one thing that could take her away from him forever.

2.0 out of 5 stars Lack Aug. 14 2014
By DMO - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Lack of knowledge and/or research...The male protagonist who is a Montana rancher as are his descendants, says things like "peachy" or he is going to "ring his mother". The New Zealand culture and phrases were appropriate when looking from the perspective of the woman, but not a Montana rancher. When describing horseback riding it was obvious the writer did not know even the basics. No stirrups on the saddles to place your feet for mounting and balance. Having to be lifted up and then balance yourself with your thighs gripping the horse's ribs? You would have to be riding a Shetland pony to grip the animals ribs with your thighs. The whole wolf thing...Wow. I could describe the fallacies but not without giving away too much of the story.

Lack of basic editing became annoying and distracting. By the time I read smelt, instead of smelled, I was tempted to not even finish. With work, this story could have been rescued.

It is not the author's fault but, I purchased this book under a "clean romance" heading. Please be aware that there is sexual content.

9/25/14 Update..If you read the comments you will see that I have been rightly corrected on my criticism of the use of the word "smelt". I was unaware that the word is used instead of "smelled", in some cultures other than the U.S.. There were several editing errors, but apparently this was not one of them.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good plot line April 22 2014
By Gatorfan - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I thought the plot of the story was good. The heroine comes to Montana from New Zealand to do a teaching job in an American school and to experience living on a ranch so that she could share the experience with her students. They are 8 year olds. She also has a secret reason that she has come to Montana.

The owner of the ranch is the typical hunky cowboy. You can't help but love him. He is immediately attracted to the little Kiwi and wants to keep her for all times. However, he has been badly hurt by his ex-wife so he is guarding his heart, or so he thinks. They are both experiencing attraction but she wants to be sure to stay friends since she does plan to return home and he doesn't really want to fall in love even tho he does want a wife. A trip to Las Vegas ends badly on one hand and not so bad on the other. I thought this story had potential. I was looking forward to seeing how they worked things out to get to a HEA.

SPOILER---don't go any further if you don't want to hear these thoughts. One, I found myself disliking the heroine to the point of wanting to shake her teeth loose. She was so full of herself. She has the hots for him but yet she acts like it is all onesided and every time he opens his mouth she responds with some negative remark about marrying him. She seems awfully concerned with helping him find a wife but then not liking any of the choices. She acts as tho he is going to die if she doesn't agree to his advances.

In Vegas she gets drunk and in front of a large gathering announces they are going to get married. She insist. The group falls in with the plan and goes full steam ahead to make it happen. Then afterwards it is all HIS FAULT because he married her. She keeps telling him she will not stay married to him, will not be sleeping with him, wants a divorce, etc. but yet continues to use him to achieve her own goals. I keep wondering why he wants her in the first place. I got so put out with her that I quit reading. So, I can guess how it ends but I don't think she deserved him. He should have put her on a plane for New Zealand and said good riddance. It could have been a very cute story but the self-centered heroine ruined it for me.

2.0 out of 5 stars 2.5 - Too painful to finish Oct. 11 2014
By j - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I got to 53% and couldn't read on anymore. It just got too painful to continue after Gracie gets drunk. One of the 3 star reviews tells more about what happens here so I won't say more.

This is not the only reason I'm only giving this book 2.5 stars.

I think it had lots of potential for a well written story with good characters, however it falls short.


Trent was a decent character. He's kind of socially awkward and his plan to get married wasn't super well thought out but he wasn't coming from a bad place. After the scare with his mom being sick, he wanted to have a family and that was understandable. Although the other part of his reason made him sound kind of like an entitled jerk. He said he wanted family to carry on the ranch because he wasn't going to see his brother turn it into a joke. What I didn't understand was why he was so against what his brother wanted, to run a dude-ranch and have visitors, when it didn't seem like he even heard his brother out. Also, doesn't the brother also have rights to the ranch? I would think it doesn't just belong to Trent so why does he have all the say? His brother's future children would have to be considered too.

The other issues I had was how Trent spoke. Some of the phrases he uses just seems out of character but maybe I'm not up-to-date on cowboy speak? But he says words like huffy and traipsing, and other phrases that didn't seem cowboy-like when I read them.

Another annoying thing was how Gracie's height kept being brought up over and over again. Yes, she's shorter than average but they make it sound like there are no short people where they live and she's some anomaly.

Now what really brought the rating down was Gracie's character. She's supposed to be 31 but as I read the story I kept picturing her as in her late teens or early 20s. It seemed like she has no sense of financial responsibility as the book repeatedly talks about her shopping and ending up with several bags at a time. No explanation how she can afford this because I'm sure as a teacher she doesn't make that much. And at one point she buys a tiara! Who the heck buys tiaras? Just seems very childish.

Then after repeatedly saying no to something Trent asked her, she suddenly changed her mind when she was drunk. It was to the point that she started getting whiny about it and having a little kid pouting session. This is the point that I stopped reading because it was too much. And really, she had a random change of mind even before that when she decided to jump him after telling herself she wasn't going to get involved. I'm sick of characters who can't stick to what they say and all these stories where supposedly the attraction is just too much that they can't help but jump the other person. Another point on her seeming very young was the fact that it seemed like she had no concept about her alcohol tolerance. It's not like she grew up in some hermit world where she didn't know what alcohol was and didn't realize she could get drunk. So for a 31yo to keep tossing back drinks until she's plastered was strange. Especially when she's a small person because, as someone who is also petite, I feel like one of the first things we learn in our young adulthood is how well we handle alcohol.

Lastly, and maybe this develops more later in the story, is that up to 53% Gracie and Trent's relationship didn't feel that real. There wasn't that much in their interaction to show any development of feelings but they just feel possessive toward the other. And even Trent's attraction to her didn't make that much sense because there are super attractive women where he lives. And the ones he considers marrying are all tall with big boobs. But then he's attracted to this really short woman who has so far been described as with some curves. So what was it about Gracie that made her stand out in this way to him? It's not explained. It doesn't explain why Gracie is particularly attracted to him either. Not even some mention that he's the most attractive men she's met.

Anyways, I really wanted to like the book. It started off with potential but then just fizzled. And I started getting more annoyed with Gracie's character to the point that I couldn't read about her anymore.

1.0 out of 5 stars Wa-a-a-a-a-a-ay Too Long! Sept. 26 2015
By Jill O.A.T. - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I agree with some of the other readers about the author's lack of research, especially on the wolves incident. This book is not a "clean romance" as it is touted, and I believe the only reason Ms. Morgan kept the book going for much longer that's it ought to have, was to insert yet another torrid sex scene. Would it be too much to ask that a fiction writer could at least make her work somewhat believable? There' s no real drama, no suspense, and the storyline lumbers like a bear towards the inevitable conclusion. There are also hundreds of "Kiwisms" rather than what should be Americanisms, coming from the mouths of characters who are supposed to be from Montana.
