RIVERS OF WIND is a great read. A compelling story and likeable characters made it difficult to put the book down.
Jayden is a New York college student who came to visit his aunt in search of peace and quiet to think and recover from a situation he is involved in. When his aunt forgets his coming and his visit coincides with the realization of the Annual Horse and Cattle Auction, she proposes that he stay on the horse ranch of her friend, May Ryder and her brother Mal.
After an awkward first meeting on the ranch, Mal and Jayden grow close and give way to the attraction between them.
RIVERS OF WIND was a very enjoyable read. The story is not perfect with some minor flaws but nothing too detrimental. The romance between Jayden and Mal is built slowly and the plot is interesting enough to hold your attention.
Jayden and Mal are two characters who are still suffering from their past. Their relationship begins gradually, they do not go immediately to bed despite the attraction between them. This was something that I liked about this story.
The secondary characters also have their charm, especially Mal's sister and his niece. The interactions between the two made me laugh.
So if you like a slow pace and sweet romance, RIVERS OF WIND is the book for you.
