Does your romance reading checklist include a sexy cowboy, a girl with a secret, a little relationship conflict and some hot, steamy sex before the happily ever after ending? If so, add HOLDING ON to the top of your list!

What happens when you fall in love with a cowboy who has an extreme aversion to marriage and doesn't want children? You run away and hide, hoping that one day he'll come to his senses and return your love. Then you find out that you're pregnant and you don't have any health insurance. You don't want to go home because your parents died in a car accident seven years ago. Your brother, Troy, has taken over the running of the Double M Ranch and thinks you're a screw up. What's a cowgirl to do?

That's Brandi McNeal's life in a nutshell. She's given birth to daughter, Suzy, and promised to hold a rodeo at the Double M Ranch to pay off her hospital bill. With no money, Brandi is forced to return home, face her brother and his wife, Chell, and begin to put her life back together. Not to mention con her brother into letting her hold a rodeo at their family ranch!

Once home, Brandi learns that her brother has taken on a partner, Dex Walczok, to run the ranch. Not a problem, except that Dex just happens to be Brandi's ex-lover and Suzy's father. How is she going to break the news to Dex that his greatest fear in life has just become true? Will he man up and become a father to Suzy? Or will Dex follow in his father's footsteps and distance himself from his family?

Ms. Thomas' second book in the series is an entertaining story of two lovers with conflicting ideas about love and life. Dex's father was so involved in the rodeo circuit that he had nothing left to give to his family. Brandi's family always believed that she couldn't do anything right. The author does a good job of showing how a sweet baby's birth can cause dramatic changes in the parents' lives. Love truly does conquer all!
